(If this is true) GTA V really boosted the sales of both consoles, especially the PS3. Shows how monstrous of a franchise GTA is.

LOL_WUT3950d ago

All three consoles saw a nice boost (PS3, 360 and Wii U) congrats to all 3. ;)

Eonjay3949d ago

Also note that the Zelda Edition of Wii U launched on 9/20 at the lower price point of $299. Looks like a nice boost for the Wii U there just one day into the latest offering.

B-radical3949d ago

Gta sold roughly 18 million according to this chart that's just insane! Congrats to rockstar

Zodiac3949d ago

I wonder what boosted the Wii U sales so much(The W101 couldn't have done that alone) The price drop didn't take effect until the 20th,WW HD digital launched on the 20th. I'd have thought hardware sales would be down after a price drop announcement.

animegamingnerd3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

considering how wonderful 101 sold about 15K yeah most of it is the Wii U zelda bundle but i do hope that wonderful does a little better cause of the Wii U price though that is unlikely to happen

drsfinest723949d ago

Poor vita. I can't wait for the games to roll in

Kratos_19863949d ago

the vita numbers will sky rocket once the ps4 unleash but look at doos ps3 numbers :)double the xobox numbers

tiffac0083949d ago

Expect Vita sales to remain flat until the VTV launches.

iceman063949d ago

There might be a spike right around the time of the PS4. But, it will mostly remain flat until Vita TV AND a renewed focus on Vita advertising...which will probably happen post PS4 launch. When Sony "re-launched" the PSP, after the price drop, it started to really catch on.

tubers3949d ago

I'm sure there'd be some spikes after VTV, 2K and a few weeks after PS4 release.

Needs games with larger appeal for Jan-Feb.

AFAIK, GE2 will probably be its best system seller for the remaining year. SS Delta on March.
Tearaway is a wildcard.

Neptunia RE1 and Sen no Kiseki seem niche.

FW/GR2 has no specific dates but in 2014.

Games like SNAFU (anime game) and RO:Ace didn't seem to help the system much but the competition's recent software releases and 2K model/VTV announcements are probably good factors as well.

tubers3949d ago

LOL@disagrees. Impulsive downvoting I bet when they saw "Poor vita.".

xKugo3949d ago

PlayStation on a roll. Sad about the PSV, though but it's time is coming. I really believe that it's on the upcome.

Xbox Series X Sales Are Trailing Both Xbox One And 360

Meanwhile, the PS5's sales are leading the PS4's in the same amount of time.

That would be the Xbox Series sales as a whole, not just the Series X. If we consider the latter in isolation, based on those leaked documents, it should be trailing behind the Dreamcast, Wii U, and PS Vita, let alone the much more successful Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

And it's also what the original source claims: "Xbox Series trails Xbox One by 13% and remains slightly behind Xbox 360". So I would suggest for the article to be corrected.

How is it slightly behind the 360 when the Xbox one never passed the 360 at all?

Plague-Doctor276h ago(Edited 6h ago)

Its launch aligned. The 360 had pretty decent sales numbers at the end of its lifespan due to Kinect which is where the One really trailed off as it had no legs. That late gen success is partly why they went so hard on the Kinect at the Xbox One reveal

Vits3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

It's a curve of sales over time. Currently, within the same timeframe, Xbox Series sales are slightly behind Xbox 360 sales, whereas Xbox One sales were actually slightly ahead of Xbox 360 sales within the same timeframe.

Here a example: https://www.vgchartz.com/ar...

It's a bit concerning that people don't seem to understand this.

Its crazy that xbox is less and less relevant with every generation.
