For the PS3 to hang this tight with a handheld is saying quite a lot. Hopefully some of it will rub off on the Vita once PS4 launches.

Darth Stewie2496d ago

A PS3 price drop to $199 at E3 and Last of Us launching that week could increase sales even more.

Ju2496d ago

PS3 won't drop. With those number - and TLoU, GT6, Beyond 2 Souls on the horizon it will sell no matter what - and will not cut too much into PS4. $199 would compete way to much internally.

mudmax2496d ago

At Ju, LMFAO Yeh everybody is waiting for beyond 2 souls. I bet PS3 outsells PS4 for the first year. Same goes for 360 and One.

Ju2495d ago (Edited 2495d ago )

Nah, PS3 sure won't outsell the PS4. But there is simply no need to. Install base is big enough, dumping price doesn't makes sense. It'll be around for a while an generate profits at the price it is - without much impact on numbers. People who go buy a PS4 are early adopters and probably are the ones who bought the PS3 early in the life cycle. People who buy a PS3 now have a reason to do so. After PS4 is released and will reach a critical mass - while PS3 sales will drop - is the time to lower PS3 prices. But not at PS4 launch - or before.

PSP sold over 1.5 million this year? Thats interesting because it seems retail dont carry them no more.

CommonSenseGamer2496d ago

More PSPs sold in NZ than Vitas over the past 12 months. The Vita hardly gets shelf space in stores in NZ even though its constantly being discounted.

G20WLY2496d ago

Thanks for the info, as always - this is important news indeed.../S

You know what the funny thing is about what you said?

No one cares.

Biggest2496d ago

It always strikes me in a strange way that the world wide sales postings are so quiet in comparison to the regional sales postings. Is there something offensive about total sales that I am missing?

MysticStrummer2496d ago

"Is there something offensive about total sales that I am missing?"

The truth.

insomnium22496d ago

So now even VGC shows PS3 ahead of the X360. 77313472 vs 77311669. That's like 1803 consoles more for PS3.

Is there any way anyone can still say that PS3 is not ahead?

theres a reason i havent been on the site since like 9th grade. it and its sales GUESSES are usually little more than optimistic trash.

would love to hear some solid numbers from the companies themselves.

mudmax2496d ago

Agree. I don't visit vgchartz anymore either.
