lol @ vgchartz claiming ps3 GTA outsold 360 GTA:D Wii is on fire this week though NA + EU sales alone showing 600 thousand in one week. Thats not normal
The PS3 is definitely doing a lot better this week than anyone could have predicted. It looks like Pachter's predictions about GTA being more synonymous with the Playstation brand to be correct. Nintendo probably allocated Wiis just for this week to counter the big boosts PS3 and 360 got from GTAIV.
Chart-Track already confirmed the PS3 version outsold the 360 version(in the UK at least), but the PS3 is a software seller in EU so it's not unbelievable.
Yea but i didn't really see PS3 coming ontop in software sales. In the UK, 360 is still ahead of ps3 by at least a million units. I don't think MSoft could have survived GTA4 on ps3 without a price drop
There is no way X360 version of GTA4 would even sell half as mcuh as the PS3 version since PS3 has a bigger LTD HW in europe PLUS x360 version wont appear on the topcharts of Germany/spain/france and italy wow at camouflaged XBOX fanboy sonarus with FAKE PSN id Someone is TRUELY ABNORMAL to even think that x360 version of a multiplatform game would outsell the PS3 version in europe PS3 is 500,000 units behind x360 in UK. however it has overtaken x360 by almost double the sales in every eu /pal territory except Australia (trailing by just 50,000 units) http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
but even with that 1million extra in EU and extra 6mill in the US, the total console to software sales for GTAIV were higher on the PS3.
Yea i know. Sucks for microsoft since they don't really have any strong system sellers till Gears. Release dates on too human, left for dead remain sketchy. After NG2 whats the next 360 game with a release date? Haha i just love when i am confused for a 360 fanboy its hilarious. To be honest madden, i don't play games. I just try to analyze everything about them in the most quixotic method possible
Do you actually ever "p-l-a-y" games, or simply try to analyze everything about them in the most quixotic methods possible?
You can ask Sonarus that, but you don't ask nasim???
Ok Sonarus...I get it now. :P If you really don't play then that's sad, but I do believe you have to play something; otherwise it must be a miserable existence to see all of these wonderful games -- only not to play them. Great answer =) --------------------------- Jolly1 -- Point well taken. All in all I believe that there are people that exist only to talk, cheerlead, analyze games without playing games at all, and that makes for some bland conversations, because you end up talking about things like percentages, figures, dates, and sites without any real talk of ...well.....playing games! I guess I'm a real oddball because I love to spend hours/days playing games as well as talking about them when I can. Games first / typing second for Maddens. 8D ---------------- edit/ below: So sonarus what games that you used to play are way more impressive than the ones you see today comparitively, and how so?
I used to play games hours everyday but lately, i am losing interest. Games just don't impress me like they used to. Plus i am busy with school now so don't have that much time to spare playing games. Off course i play games though...what kind of human being doesn't play games:D
you have made nothing but stupid freaking ridiculous comments ALL day today.. i agree that everyone it's entitled to their opinion but your opinions today have been so stupid.. i don't have a problem with that but stop freaking rushing to every news to make the first comment specially if you don't have something smart to say..
just crawl back under your rock, and never return. man you are the most annoying, and damn rite pathetic creature that i've yet come across on here. just do anything, but remove your fanboy self you little weirdo!! it's a little strange to see sonarus(who is a ps3 fanboy, just not of zimbos stripe) getting attacked by the other ps3 fanboys...what gives? anyway, there's no way of knowing anything because VGCHARTZ IS JUST ESTIMATES!!! BUT, LIKE OTHERS AT NOTED BEFORE, THEY ARE ACCURATE WHEN THEY ARE FAVOURABLE TO THE PS3! you lot will cling to anything! and what is zimbo/alexM/shadow hearts/sammy_mantra raving on about? cant he just have his IP address banned or something?!
@Bullettoothtony i can post whatever comment i want and you can't stop me:D. Vgchartz pre sales analysis were predicting the 360 would outsell the ps3 not only with software but with hardware due to the 360's lower price but it seems they were wrong at least according to their fake data. I was being sarcastic about it but no one caught the joke apparently but i could care less. @madden. Very very few games have impressed me enough to hold my interest this gen. Gears of war, Uncharted and warhawk are pretty much the only games that have held my interest. GT5P...maybe a little. Plus like i said i am busy with school so i have stuff to do. Not like i have to force myself to play a game i am not really interested in.
San Andreas appears in the top 50. lol Guess some of those PS2 owners who aren't in the new-gen are compensating with a GTA fix of some sort. Also, apart from GTAIV what is going on with 360's sales? Then again it is VGChartz.
Well, it could also be PS3 owners like me who got re-interested in the early releases in ancticipation. I know I'll probably be grabbing the GTA: The Trilogy and MGS: The Essential Collection along with GTA IV and MGS4, respectively.
True Cuz I did the same thing prior to launch.
I agree I think PS3 version of GTA4 might have outsold x360 version 2:1 in europe considering the fact the x360 version probably wont appear on the charts of Spain,italy,france and germany
your laughing at the the GTA SA buyers for ps2, one of the largest library of games and arguably the best console of all time? what about the XBOX purchases? lol
since x360 doesnt exist in europe PS3 has outsold x360 in europe in terms of LTD HW sales poor x360 . everything is over for them
goodfella don't be silly. Those are 2 weeks worth of sales compared to 1 week.
x360 is pretty much dead in europe even in UK PS3 version had a 45% share out of GTA4's total sales in UK Not to mention x360 doesnt exist in any other EU territory PS3 has overtaken x360 in terms of LTD HW sales in europe http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... Cry SONARUS aka XBOT with FAKE PSN id . CRY MS and x360 are both finished in europe
good week for sony and GTA
aaaaaaaahahahha Nasim has a new account! Welcome Nasim or should i say: zambrota? or should i say: schmee or should i say: doodle or should i say: tanod or should i say: alexM or should i say: jimmy? or shou... oh for faark's sake... GIVE UP NASIM
PS3 is just less than a million away from 360 consoles count.Plus as I said PS3 will and has moved a lot more consoles than 360 did;) But it did prove me wrong as PS3 GTA4 sold more than the 360 counterpart.
http://www.n4g.com/News-142... Those are just VGCHARTZ numbers ---they have deflated x360 sales by a MILLION It makes sense since no x360 game ever appears on the charts of Spain,italy,france and germany since x360's bases there are VERY SMALL
But according to this, 360 is getting hammered this week. I remember back in the day when VG chartz had PS3 loosing every week. Estimate or not, I didn't like it.
watch the xboxfangirl come crying VGChartz is garbage wait wait until NDP comes out. but last year xboxfangirl was acting like VGChartz was the holy grail 360 sucks bottom line
.....but wasnt you all saying VG CHARTS inflates numbers when the xbox was outselling ps3. as soon as it is the other way round you take like its the holy grail. EVAN WE KNEW THAT VG CHARTS WERE AS TRUE AS BULL SH!T. DO YOU? spin and monipulate so much stuff you droids do. f|_|ck of (p.s no PMs again please!!!!!!)
almost 200k PS3 unit sales in one week!!! For europe! Only a 144K for the Xbox 360!!! LOL...
i diddnt expect any of these numbers, why does vgcharts still say 360 is below 20 millions, is that a joke or something, or are they even worse at getting their numbers right is it me but the last 3 months the 360 sales total hasnt budged on vgchartz
Xbox360 has no chance to regain territory in Europe, and fυck Japan since they just laugh at Microsoft over there, take that as a hint M$. I dunno, what push can they do Halo 3 didn't make consoles fly off the shelves, I really think Xbox 360 is starting to drift off, I mean there's nothing left after november. There's so many uses for a PS3 is sickening.
Halo 3 Total 1,940,726 ms are so stupid with there two year head start
And the PS3 just crushed the 360 in Europe.
With his writing style intact always, does he still expect us not to know who he is?
Wow, well done Sony. During the slow months of the year even though PS3 was beating XB by 30% or whatever, it was only 10's of thousands of consoles. The cry from the bots was always, Sony will never catch up "at this rate." Well if its not obvious by now let me spell it out for you. They dont intend to stay "at this rate". In a quiet week 30% more might be 20K consoles but judging by these numbers PS3 is going to outsell XB world wide by close to 100K. In a week. Now imagine those ratios during Christmas. In a busy month it might be more than 500K. It wont be long "at that rate." Plus, success tend to feed on its self and snowball. Sony didnt get here in one month. Theyve been slowly improving and improving every month, and are not likely to even slow down let alone turn around. And heres food for thought. No Japanese numbers and already close to 100K in the lead. What if Japan suddenly woke up and said, I'm sick of balancing boards and virtual dogs. I wonder what that GTA is like. What console would benefit the most from that? M$ is praying Japan never starts to like Grand Theft Auto. It would be Ironic if all their advertising was what made them have another look at it and get into it, flocking in droves for GTA and the MGS4 bundle.
The 360 just has a price cut in europe a while ago, but it is still the least selling next gen console in the market. That tells you something.
HEY HEY HEY PS3 TROLLS didnt u noptice 1 keep factor in the us gta sold 2million plus on the 360 while on the ps3 it sold 1million and then we go to the whole of europe ( not to mention vgcharts is inaccuratealways)were gta on the ps3 sold 1,200m copys while on the 360 it sold for 990k so tell me as the 360 is dead in eurpe why is it so close to gta 4 sales not to mention the whole 1million + lead it has with the us markets the 360 of gtaoutsellig the ps3 by 1 million copys u forgot that right also not ot mention the crap game called rresisteance we have seen the ingame and its a joke
And the Wii continues to crush both of them everywhere. I love N4G. Full of fanboys who claim "PS3 beat the 360" or vice versa and yet week in and week out the Wii continues to beat them both. And this with no major releases out and up against the almighty GTA4. LOL
And barbie-Dolls and Tamagotchis outsold Wii by a million. And Total Gym 2000 outsold WiiFit by 3 million. Why are you even comparing Wii to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3?
Um...newsflash! Nintendo isn't in the console war! :3
not that people should be trusting *in the words of nasim* VGCRAP!!! but if there figures really are anything to go by then Sony has done ver well for themselves hell the PS3 nearly matched the Wii this week
still sold more consoles than either MS or Sony. Well not one person has mentioned that. They still outsold on a week with no major releases and they were up against GTA4. Well done Nintendo.
I'm Surprised with wii sales this week with GTA IV out on PS3/360 it could be VGchartz inaccuracy
PS3 197,410 ;-P xBox360 144,690 ;-D
Or better yet- a moment of laughter: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! !!!!!! You stupid PIGS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! !!! Your "console" is DEAD!!! HHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! 36 days until Judgment Day, Nazisoft! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
...Dance on their GRAVE!!! ;-D We are close to that Toy called the Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii to!!! ;-D
Because they are fighting each other, unlike barbie and tamagotchis. As much as you might hate it the PS3 and 360 are in a fight with the Wii and have both suffered badly. and if the Wii is not included in the battle then this gen of gaming might be the last as the two consoles in battle are struggling. Really struggling.
Struggling against what?A fitness machine?LOL
watch out for mgs4 in japan that will shift the ps3 and little big planet will move even more over there in fact little big planet will have sales as big as mario i beleive
The war is over in EU. MS screwed up again. PS3 FTW!
