If everyone keeps saying that its inaccurate and pointless, why does this website keep getting submitted and approved by people here? =/

Cwalat3856d ago

obviously... not everyone in here thinks that way..

mikeslemonade3856d ago

I think it's a good source since we have no other alternative for European or Japanese weekly sales.

Template3856d ago

Vgchartz is just a kid who used to try to pass off his fake numbers on various message boards until he got banned after people got tired of his BS.

He's basically nothing more than an Xbox fan who likes to pretend the 360 is selling much better than it really is and that the PS3 is selling much worse than it really is.

ianp6223856d ago

I've found vgchartz to be only +/-10% off when compared to NPD and Media Create, so it's good enough for me.

JBaby3433856d ago

How Nintendo keeps selling so many. Can someone please explain this to me. I do NOT see the novelty or interest in a DS or Wii. I just don't. Maybe for little kids to play brain games on the DS but get them a book instead and it's even better for them. Nintendo just making crazy money off a console without anything good to play (at least in my opinion).

shine13963856d ago

erm...wii sports and wii don't match up...have they restarted selling wii's without wii sports in japan?

BeNice3856d ago

first off odd name. Anyway what makes both systems sell so much for one is nintendo's first party games. True all three console companies make good first party games but generally in the industry nintendo is considered to have quality gaming and they do deliver almost always. Obviously i don not expect a playstaion or xbox fanboy to agree with that but it is true. That's why nintendo titles outsell third parties because if you buy a nintendo game you know its goign to be good quality a third party game not so many good ones. The ds has a host of great games. More than the psp , the psps caters in my honest opinion caters to the gamers who see bllod and graphics as extremely important in deciding whether a gamae is good or not. Certainly there are gamers who are otherwise who own the psp.the ds caters to both casual and hardcore (especially if you are into rpgs and action adventure games )except the graphics whores out there. The ds has many unique and interesting titles try them out just cos something isn't technically supreme does not make it bad and neither do bright cheerful colors ina videogame. I hope this is an appropriate reply to your comment.

dan-boy3856d ago

coz you just made yourself look like a fanboy rite there. vgchartz is a waste of time. but obviously you have the correct figures so woud you be so kind and put them up for everyone to read..

there's a good boy!

Glad to be a gamer3856d ago

The exc games you can get for the Ds mostly give you great individual exp that can't be got from anywhere else due to the touch screen and voice control.

i love my Ds great gaming console if graphics aern't your be all and end all.

P.s got MKwii yesterday and it is amazing, the wheel, the tight controls,the tracks,the karts,off roaders and bikes, the quick and easy not to mention lag free online and online comps to finish it off. Im blown away by a mario kart game again. did not think it would happen as i thought the ds version could'nt be bested. Why didn't i get it sooner thats all i can say. highly reccomended even if you have never played mario kart. AWESOME

It selling very well, already passed 1,200,000 sold worldwide. The software numbers are now closer between PS3 and 360. I want to see what GTA4 will do to these numbers.

shine13963856d ago

you know its funny...I just realized there are more x360 consoles in the US then the ps3 world over, if GTA sales are remotely close, between the two consoles it ought to prove something pretty significant!

Real gamer 4 life3856d ago

If the ps3 continues to sell like this, then sony will have no reason to lower the price. Meaning we wont see a price cut for a long time. And soon sony is going to actually start making a profit off the ps3. things are looking very good for them.

killer_trap3856d ago

i think sony needs to sell twice as much as this to cover ground. but i have no doubt sales well pick up even more with a price cut and the upcoming game releases.

Bathyj3856d ago

I disagree Killer.

With its bigger userbase, all the money they spent not to mention the big song and dance they've been making about GTA, I think M$ needs to sell twice as much just to save face.

If the software numbers end up being similar and the consoles sold end up similar, then all of M$'s hoopla will look like a giant failure and a slap in the face to M$.

They've gone all out on a multiplatform game will Sony has just played it cool. To only come out even will be embarrassing.

killer_trap3856d ago

i read on a website that Valkyria Chronicles is sold out in japan. i'm really looking forward to this game and if it sells well maybe we'll see an English version. can anyone confirm this. i know it's a little off topic but it is still sales related.

killer_trap3856d ago

thank you very much. nutjuice ftbu(for the bubble up)
