I cant believe DmC on PS3 outsold the 360 version 2:1 with just the physical copies, werent DMC4 sales on both platforms pretty close?

NovusTerminus2829d ago

This is worldwide. In Japan DmC sold 5k on the 360, PS3 was 100k thats where the different is at.

On another note, DmC failed to match DMC4's so far.

NYC_Gamer2829d ago (Edited 2829d ago )

DMC will drop in price just like Resident Evil 6 did

MaxXAttaxX2828d ago

PS3 versions of games outselling 360 versions isn't really something new.

hellvaguy2828d ago

"PS3 versions of games outselling 360 versions isn't really something new"

Sales of Skyrim and Black Ops 1 and 2 are waving hello. You know games sales numbers that actually matter.

Anyways, moot point. bring on next gen!

Divine2829d ago

come on this is all just more proof of which consoles are worthy and those which are not. and once again wii you cannot rival ps3 or 360 systems, and forget about comparing to next gen. They way things look if i didn't know anything about games i would consider wii u some type of portable handheld device since it is only on par with portable devices. of course ps3 would be dominating though no surprise there, we produce quality.

kingjoker342828d ago

PSP outsold the PSV?

AdvanceWarsSgt2828d ago

"WiiU on par with portable devices"

Being extremely hyperbolic there, dontcha think?

Persistantthug2828d ago

versions of games quite a bit these days.

For example,
ASSASSIN'S CREED 3 and RESIDENT EVIL 6 sold more on the PS3

2828d ago
Muerte24942828d ago

you're on a roll for being wrong. Sony has stated that they don't pay for any exclusives and companies only do so by their choice and nothing else.

Microsoft paid for to get GTA4 the same time as ps3. 75 million to be exact.

darthv722828d ago

this isnt 2007 anymore. sony pays for things just like MS does. That is just the nature of business in this generation.

to still think otherwise is behind the times.

AngelicIceDiamond2828d ago

Assassin's Creed 3 Resident Evil 5 6 has Sold more on PlayStation. Japanese titles usually sell more on PlayStation.

But that's about it. Everything else sells better on Xbox. Hopefully you know this? That's how its been for..well since this gen started.

"PS3 versions of games outsell Xbox 360." Sorry but that's a huge total lie. If that's the case we would be seeing PlayStation logos beside most 3rd party games.

Devs want to show off their flag shipped games on the most popular console.

Skips2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )


"Devs want to show off their flag shipped games on the most popular console."

Then in that case, it would go PS3 > 360 world wide right? lol. Considering the PS3 has been outselling the 360 WW for many years. Anyways, it's common knowledge that MANY (if not most) genres, other than shooters, sell more on PS3, except for maybe WRPG's.

Racing games, fighting games, platformers, hack n slash games, JRP's, and action adventure games most of the time sell better on PS3. Of course shooters are the most popular genre right now so you thinking "Everything else sells better on Xbox" is understandable.

Of course you're wrong though.

Kinda generalizing here but I'd say games like DmC are more geared towards the Sony crowd. Most people I know on Xbox 360 including myself HATE games like that.

2828d ago
Gamer19822828d ago

Worldwide sales really helped with DMC but it just shows again that outside of shooters ps3 gamers buy more compared to 360. Most 360 gamers get a 360 for Halo and Gears with the multis on top whereas people buy PS3 for more than that.

UnholyLight2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Yeah somewhat true. But I wouldn't call Xbox a "Halo and Gears only" type of machine. The Sony gamers tend to be into the God of War's and the DmC's and stuff. I've never been into that style of gaming and that's why I prefer Xbox. I can't speak for the other millions of Xbox gamers but yes my games are indeed MOSTLY shooters, but I have plenty of racing games, Assassin's Creed type games, sports games, kinect games (I'm not just a pure hardcore). This gen is the first time I've ever been remotely interested in an RPG style game (Elder Scrolls)

I for one just can't get into anything else, but I was so happy I tried out Elder Scrolls Oblivion because that really changed my perspective.

Side note: If you like games similar to Command and Conquer, in WWII style, but with a twist you should REALLY REALLY REALLY try the game RUSE. Most underrated game ever it is so much fun (PS3 and 360). I just play Battles all the time!

Animal Crossing New Leaf is doing great. At third place worldwide and it's only out in Japan.

Tewi-Inaba2828d ago

I believe this is the 1st week it has been outsold too
pretty amazing considering it's been 11 weeks

MRMagoo1232828d ago

Animal crossing are good games its to be expected i think.

KING852829d ago

Some good numbers on wall fronts, but the Wii U and PS Vita need to pick it up. Once those new games come those respective platforms should see a boost in sales.

EddieNX 2829d ago

Whilst what you say is true , The wiiu is far from in the same ball park as the PS vita yet. The Vita has been out for over a year globaly and is on 4 Million. The Wiiu has been out less than 2 months globaly and is on 3M. By the time the wiiu has been out for a Year+ like the vita has , expect over 10,000,000 Wiiu's sold.

Especially as killer games come in time for this years holiday season.

I know Sony fans want to pretend the Wiiu is somehow in the same boat as the vita , but it simply is not and will be successfull by end of 2013.

Don't believe me ? Wait and see.

KING852829d ago

I know you can't respond, but it was never meant to suggest they are in the same boat. It's true things are much dire for the Vita and it is by no stretch to say that gamers want this thing to pick up and start selling like hotcakes. Once the likes of Kilzone, JRPGs for Japan are released things should look brighter.

HammadTheBeast2828d ago

Funny, since Kill zone Mercenaries will look better than most Wii U games.

GuyManDude2828d ago

10,000,000? I think you're overestimating Nintendo's "hardcore" fanbase, at least from a global perspective. Europe's interest in the WiiU is dismal right now, about on-par with the Gamecube's launch. And the Gamecube had Super Smash Bros Melee a month after launch and Super Mario Sunshine within a year of launch.

There are two things that could get the WiiU over 10 million by the end of 2013:

1) A price drop

2) Casual games

But price is the key. The WiiU won't match the Wii's success at $300/$350. If there isn't a price drop, people will have to spend $350/$400 to buy a WiiU with Wii Fit U this summer, and that's if they already have the balance board.

I don't see casual gamers buying the WiiU for $350, just like casual gamers didn't buy the 3DS for $250 and currently the PSV for $250.

AdvanceWarsSgt2828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

@HammadTheOne Completely irrelevant point (and one that's not based on fact anyway).

xursz2828d ago

Wii U did 10k more than Vita. Fanboys still claim the vita is somehow dead but Wii U is doing phenomenal. Give me a break.

If Japan weren't Nintendo nutjobs the Wii would be outselling WiiU today. That is bad. But don't tell that to a Nintendo fanboy.
