Hardware: DS --> 379,573 Wii --> 375,643 PSP --> 206,367 PS3 --> 179,416 360 --> 152,619 PS2 --> 132,261
yea i agree with you abot the price drop thought with that MGS4 bundle comin out in june for $500 the 80GB N 40GB shud get like a 50-100 dollar price drop.
Umm Honestly PS3 doesn't have VERYYYYY VERYYYYYY good games right now and it's selling Great ! ( Except some old games like Uncharted, COD4, Resistance and .. ) Imagine when these games hit the stores what PS3 sells are gonna be GTA IV MGS4 Home Killzone 2 Resistance 2 GT5 The Getaway Eight Days ..... There are tons of them EDIT: Oh Actually MGS4 comes in a bundle which is gonna be a badass. MGS4 + DualShock 3 = OMGGGGGGG PS3
the number of PS3 exclusive megahit titles will increase exponentionaly .. and in March 2009 with GOW3 , there will be no Console in History with that enormous line-up of games in every genre.. and about your list of games.. there isnt any member on this site who can name all of the PS3 exclusives in 2008,2009 .. :P so dont waste your energy , its a long list
"PS3 doing good !" PS3 --> 179,416 360 --> 152,619 The real worldwide numbers are most likely PS3 --> 200,000 360 --> 130,000 After getting caught with their January sales number lies, vgchartz essentially dug their heels in and are now claiming their 'numbers' are more 'accurate' than NPD. Vgchartz has pretty much become just a site you go to lie to yourself that the 360 and PS3 are in some sort of neck and neck race worldwide.
Sony needs another price cut this summer. The lineup for 2008 looks stong but many of those games will fall to 09. I think the only system move for the ps3 this year is GT5. MGS4 will be amazing but it's not a system mover. MG5 however, will move units. Sony needs 1 more price drop to have the 80 @ 399 and the 40 @ 299.99 That will force MS to cut their prices and stop eating like a fat pig on an overpriced consoles that should have had a price cut last year. Sony is sellign at a lost and MS is selling at a gain.
"20K units aren't going to get it done." LOL! He's trying to pretend the vgchartz fantasyland numbers are real...
from all the games you mentioned above only metal gear is a system seller in japan. and it's not that big of a system seller. the ps3 sales are really hurting now and it's 15,000 or less in the last couple of weeks. the fact that the ps3 isn't doing so well has hurt the whole of the Japanese 3rd party development community as their games don't sell to well on the wii. and as much as i like western developed games i think the really exceptional ones come from japan most of the time. I'm just hoping it won't be too late to set things straight by the time the new final fantasy game is released. if only the ps3 had some of the games released on the 360 in japan then it have been in a better position right now. i think good old Phil had a good reason to criticize the way sony japan has been doing business. i just hope things get better soon cause blu-ray winning didn't do anything in japan.
Vgchartz numbers use to be off by about +500k for the 360 and -500k for the PS3 a couple months ago. Nowhere near the +2 million for the 360 they were a year ago. They've been repeatedly caught posting false European sales numbers as more and more people from Europe get and post reliable sales numbers from the two or three major retail trackers over there. The Others category use to be the main tool vgchartz used to inflate 360 sales since European sales use to be a total unknown to most gamers. People are now on to that BS and are actively calling them out on their lies. That is why vgchartz has been forced to give up posting their usually somewhat accurate US sales data and go with the BS about "our 'tracking' is more reliable than NPD' since it is the only way they are keeping the 360 within a reasonable distance of the PS3. 360 worldwide sales are around 17 million. PS3 worldwide sales are around a little over 11 million. The PS3 will pass by the 360 in worldwide installed base sometime in December 2008 most likely.
Kevon what are you talking about? MGS4 isnt a system mover? MGS4 is the ps3 most anticipated title since the system launched... Add to this that sony is bundling it with the 80gig and a dualshock and you'll see alot of mgs4's and ps3 being sold together....
hmm 35 months...but i honestly think it is going to overtake xbox360 before end of this year maybe i am crazy but i think around 50k/week in low season means A LOT...
This is actually a reply to 2.2: How could VGChartz possibly get away with claiming more accuracy than NPD? For god's sake, does anybody even know who VGChartz are? Who represents them, who compiles the data? Does anybody know how or where they get the data? If I'm not out of some mysterious loop, nobody has a damn clue. To me, they have about as much credible at this kind of thing as my cat.
If it becomes 300 for a ps3 I'm sold. :D
The month of February once again shows PLAYSTATION® 3 outselling XBOX 360 on a consitent basis during this week. Overall, Microsoft's console is spearheading itself into the bottomless pit of garbage home interactive gaming. Better known as "Waitbox" 360. Microslaves are frustrated at waiting for their console to arrive in the mail as they come to the realization that they could be enjoying what is the supreme interactive platform which is PLAYSTATION® 3. Dark Sniper can only imagine that if PS3 is outselling XBOX 360 on a worldwide basis now, then the 1-2 punch of Metal Gear Solid and Grand Theft Auto will serve as a demolishing blow to the image and reputation of Microslaves worldwide as they take personal offense to waiting for their console to arrive in the mail while Sony Snipers continue to Play B3yond. Waitbox 360 Hold on, wait a second...............Jump In $niper
x360 sold 100,000 units in USA last week???????????? even M$ themselves wont believe that especially after Blu Ray's triump. PS3 sales dropped from last week??? We should just stop with these VGCRAP numbers. theres no way x360 sold that much The original sales figures could be PS3 --200000 xBUG- 120000 I will wait for NPD number which would obviously prove VGCRAP numbers to be false. expect PS3 to be around 320000 units on NPD and x360 around 150000/160000. Hopefully thise month's NPD ends VG threads permanently at N4G
Agent 007 tidus is back LoL
its only an indicator nothing more. I would say that PS3 sold more than what they show us. I would wait for NPD-data
understand that NPD only does North America. VG isn't all that accurate but, it's a close enough guess.
I always doubted Vchart numbers and thought they are off. But these numbers indicate that vcharts are completely wrong. I think they recently replaced the guy that does the stats with a real monkey. C'mon Vcharts, those numbers are NOT logical at all. The PS3 numbers are way understated and the 360 numbers are inflated. I think NPD figures will prove my point here, at least for NA.
unless it favors the 360 right?
i say this cause i think that sony sold more than that what VGcharts told us
Gambare he was doubting VGcharts because he thinks they downplay SONY numbers. In other words, HE IS ON YOUR SIDE.
Seriously people, What Xbox 360 has that the PS3 doesn't have ? PS3 has more goods than Xbox 360 except the games are not enough and as you know from Summer 2008, PS3 is gonna start to getting the most beautiful games. Home is another thing that will be a system seller.
I dont think VGchartz are reliable enough to make any conclusions. waiting for NPD? :)
The DS and wii must come free when you buy a carton of milk or something.
cause it sold a lot more this week in the US, than it did last week and week before.
this without ff xiii
This with blu-ray movies
This without Home, GTA4, GT5, MGS4, MGS4 SKU, Haze, PSN update, Bluray 2.0, KZ2, GoW3, FFXIII and etc.
You see, PIGS? Us here at Sony HQ do not blame our setbacks on "console shortages", unlike those RAT COWARDS at Nazisoft! We have a little something called HONOUR which I wouldn't expect you to understand! Now, you SWINE can get back to rolling around in your own EXCREMENT! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
they do advertise wii/ds a lot tbh. never seen xbox or ps3 commercials. guess advertising works :) but I wonder how much they payed Nikole Kidman(or whatever her name is)
Thats pretty amazing that the PSP slim smoked both the Wii and DS Lite. Too bad it doesn't seem to be doing too well in the US and Europe in comparison.
LOL man look at us, we all have good opinions but we only have 2 or 3 bubbles. There are some other ones that have 1 bubble. This guy --> Power of Green has like 4 bubbles and all his comments are BS.
People like POG have their bubbles because they say a lot of nonsense, and so they are easy to bash. However, people who try to make intelligent posts loose bubbles because fanboys just can't take the fact people have different opinions.
The person that makes random accounts just to retaliate(texism) has nerve to talk of intellect considering you have to be no more than 12 years of age. Texism got mad cus I called him a f a g-o tron (which he is) Not only are you a f a g-otron tex, but you're a three bubble f a g-o-tron. That's like having three nuts. WTF is wrong with you dude? LMAO You know you wanna respond texism. For that's what f a g-o-tron's do
made a pact with satan to help boost 360 sales.he had to trade his sanity(not intelligence,because he actually doesn't have any),thus explaining his delusion. but even that won't help. he is an embarassment for his own camp dammit.
the 360 outsild the ps3 in the USA. So were the shortages story true ? So MSFT were actually saying the truth. That is if VGCHARTS is accurate this time.Anyways better wait for npd. But if it did outsell the ps3 in the USA then ALOT of ps3 fanboys are going to look DAMN stupid. They were the ones ready to put their lives on the line saying the "shortage" was all made up and how they swear that the 360 would NEVER outsell the 360 again in any part of the world. I told you guys to shut up and wait a month or two to see if they were lying.Thats what I would have done.
you got 5 Disagrees for nothing LoL
of course the 360 will never outsell the 360 lol, it will always be the same p.s i know it was a typo, but screw it- im in a picky mood
Always pointing to the US. Just be happy about the headstart the 360 had by ditching the Xbox early, it gave it a nice selection of exclusives at a price. But now its the PS3's turn to have the better lineup. If you just look at the hardware launch chart, you see how the curve is now dramatically in favor of the PS3 despite a poor launch.
north america (which is all npd covers) is not the only place in the world they sell consoles.....I KNOW I KNOW i thought it was crazy too when i first heard there are places other than north america..why theres all of this continent called europe... and asia (cant forget about them eh?) so many other places the 360 is getting sh!t stomped and before you bring up the well the 3fixme is still ahead dont forget to calculate in that year head start and then see where the 3sh!tty is standing....
Lol you got 14 disagrees. Lol @ sony fanboys man. Just wow. Aren't you guys even ashamed? Lol EDIT: Lol, Mr.Playboy got 5 disagrees for pointing out that LaChance got a bunch of disagrees. What is that? What are you even disagreeing to? Lol fanboys are so stupid.
before the holydays, i will buy my second PS3^^
That MGS bundle is going to sell BIG TIME...
Ummm, did anyone else notice, with just over half the userbase, PS3 actually sold more SOFTWARE the Xbox. Thats right, more people buy games for a movie player than for the "hardcore" video games console thats only about the games. I'm starting to believe not everything the Xpeople have told me about PS3 has been the complete and honest truth. Hang on, I need to double check this before I hit ADD COMMENT. Yup, still the same.
Yes mate - I've been saying it for ages. The weekly attach rate for PS3 has been higher than the other machines for over 3 months now, and its getting plainer and plainer to see. I'm not making any kind of fanboy statement, I own all the machines and I'm happy for all of them to succeed, but the myth purported by 360 fanboys that no PS£ owner buys software is obviously and demonstrably wrong.Each and every week, the average PS3 owner buys more games for his system than any other system owner - thats provable fact!
Software Sales 360: 1,372,779 PS3: 793,095 I am so confused. Are there two charts or something?
I don`t love the ps3. I like it like o like most of the stuff that i own. But i truly genuinely hate my x360, and MS, and i wish them death, for being so unreliable with both software and hardware nowadays. Die MS, DIE!
@ Dweg Sony will have caught up by the end of the year...not Wii though
Not by beating the 360 by 20,000 a week. It'll take 5-6 years at around that rate.
arent out yet. And if this games will released i would say we will see a realy Boost in sales for The PS3.
so much for ps3 being only a "movie-player." software numbers for ps3 actually higher than 360.
of course that stuff is in a past the sales/install base ratio is almost always higher for the PS3 for most modern games like DMC4, BO:P, Turok etc etc people who say otherwise are ignorant and avoid the facts- because they hurt i presume
How do you get that? Software XBOX 360 - 1,314,243 ps3 - 749,665
No no no ikiru. 1,314,243 has seven numbers in it. 749,665 only has six. That means 1,314,243 is bigger. So, 360 actually sold more. Do you understand? lol EDIT: I don't believe this. Ikiru actually got 7 agrees! I refuse to believe that Sony fanboys are that stupid lol.
a platform that release a year early into the market, and have almost double the install base then the competitor and Selling the softwares almost at close to the competitor, than we all should notice and consider that the platform that come a year early is doing quite poorly isn't it?
Just do the math on the software. Just divide the total software sold this week for each by the total lifetime consoles sold. You will see that they are pretty much selling at the same attach rate with a slight edge to the 360. Next time please do the math before commenting.
an honest mistake texism. i was looking at the wrong numbers.
npd doesn't cover the whole world remember people united states is just one country not the world. i might be mistaken but think vgchartz is the only thing we have overseas but im not completely sure vgchartz and npd is all i know about.
yeah npd is where it's at.
jeez am i like the only person who doesn't have a DS lol? anyway the PS3 is outselling the 360 in both software and hardware, so basically no suprises there, it's all PS3 from hereon in lads the PS2 is still selling extremely well, looks like lots of new people are discovering gaming
Am I looking at the wrong charts? Where do you see ps3 outselling the 360 in software?
Same here Bzone. Same here. PS3 fanboys must have some sort of superior comparative skills or something.
look at the install base and then talk who is bad and who is good
What happened to that magical massive PS2 fanbase that was going to flock to the PS3? stfu please.
Very Interesting DMC4 for PS3 will be a million seller soon -Lost the video game for PS3 outsold the 360 version? Oo --COD4 for PS3 outsold 360 version again ---UT3 for PS3 hast hit 300k, which isnt bad, how much has the PC version sold? ---Lost Odyssey has almost sold 300k, very interesting...this game was surely made for the western country ----Pokemon DS is still there? O= sweet! ------Even uncharted outsold COD4 360 version ----Ass Creed for Ps3 outsold 360 again ----Turok for PS3 outsold 360? O= ---No PS2 titles there -Only one PSP title there Nintendo dominates Software sales Sony and Nintendo are pretty on par on hardware sales (yes yes, 3 consoles vs 2, waaa waa)with nintendo dominating.
Another good week for the PS3!
Some of you are saying PS3 sales currently are lackluster, what would that make 360 sales then? Keep in mind not one heavy hitter has came out yet.
All you sony fanbois are suddenly so eager to trust VCCharts about the Hardware sales.... I just thought I'd point something out. 360 OUTSOLD Ps3 for 2007 but ~500,000 units. http://vgchartz.com/hwtable...
