PS4 nearly doubles Xbox One sales this week.(assuming this chart is accurate)

Is this going to become a trend? Is the Xbox One selling poorly or is the PS4 just doing really well?

TomShoe3773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

I have a feeling things will keep going like this. After Titanfall and Kinect Sports, there is no Xbox AAA exclusive with a release date. PS4 will most likely continue to lead sale throughout February, but March will be up in the air with two big AAA games coming out.

Speaking of PS4: http://i.imgur.com/6JfjzYf....

EDIT: Isn't it amazing that Smash Bros 3 and Mario Kart Wii have been out for nearly SIX years and they're still in the top 100? Ridiculous.

Abash3773d ago

Just wait till inFamous: Second Son launches, PS4 sales will get even crazier around then in the USA

Eonjay3773d ago

Well the gap isn't closing...as some had predicted. It only gets bigger

Last week it was 165k This week the gap is 242k (which is larger that than all hardware combined sold last week.)

HomerJDog3773d ago

so after infamous what's next.

scott1823773d ago

^
The order, Drive club and deep down a bit after I would think. other major releases they are probably waiting for E3 to say.

illustratedDEO3772d ago

Forget that ...what about a whole another week from know, that Japan PS4 Console launch.

itBourne3772d ago

Titan Fall will most likely effect X1 sales more then every exclusive Sony has this year.. MS is 10x better at marketing then Sony, and Titan Fall is another CoD mass market money maker. Which sucks, I wanted the shooter genre to refresh and actually change this gen.

amiga-man3772d ago (Edited 3772d ago )

PS4 almost double the sales of the xboxone, if Sony could keep up with demand who knows how big the gap would be.

if VGA charts is showing such a lead it really isn't looking good for the xboxone, official numbers will almost certainly show the PS4 with even greater numbers

UltimateMaster3772d ago

@itBourne
I don't know how much Microsoft is spending on marketing. Certainly a sh*t to of cash compared to Sony PS4 which has virtually no marketing.
But the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One.
In my book that means that marketing isn't remotely effective.

abzdine3772d ago

inFamous, DriveClub are around the corner!
People also understand how amazing value PS+ has.

Titanfall?? it's coming to PC and 360. Why bother?

Perjoss3772d ago

"so after infamous what's next."

Greatness

MazzingerZ3772d ago

Don't forget MLB 14 is also launching soon

It's going to be hilariously funny when it turns out these numbers are off by a large margin! I have to take a screenshot quick.

GribbleGrunger3773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

VGChartz hasn't adjusted the X1 numbers down since the January NPD numbers came in. They have the X1 overtracked by around 100,000 units and the PS4 undertracked by 10,000 (so pretty accurate there)

And on a side note, the PS4 is now approaching 3:1 in sales WW against the X1, WITHOUT Japan.

The PS4 is going to have a 3.2 - 3.4 million lead by this fiscal year.

stuna13773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

Yeah I know, I was one of the ones who pointed out the PS4 was undertracked by almost 300,000 consoles! Which is why I made the comment.

They changed it when Sony went public! My comment is the 8th page of my comment history.

GribbleGrunger3773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

I Apologise :) And a bubble for the my mistake, but where are you getting the 300,000 undertracked from? They were only 10,000 out for January.

The X1 is dead in Europe, will be dead on arrival in Japan and now it's dying in the US. It's not over yet but those shareholders are going to have very tight buttocks at the moment.

For some reason VGChartz decided to just split the difference between their own numbers and the NPD numbers with the adjustments:

PS4 undertracked 10k, adjusted up 5k.
3DS overtracked 70k, adjusted down 33k.
XBO overtracked 88k, adjusted down 46k.
Wii U overtracked 37k, adjusted down 27k.

stuna13773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

@Gribble

Even looking at the figures, doesn't strike you as kind of odd that even here in the U S the gap is steady shrinking, but yet there are no concrete sales data to account for just how much, but looking at the numbers it's shrinking pretty fast.

After looking at your last response with the sales figures I notice a pattern, all the ones you listed were overtracked except 1 the PS4, and looking at VGchartz it has been consistently undertracked since release.

GribbleGrunger3773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

We'll have to wait until after the Japanese launch to start seeing more consistent numbers. Sony will have and will be stockpiling for the Japanese launch (probably between 800,000 to 2.2 million) but once the spike settles down and the average appears, Sony will then allocate those free consoles to the US and Europe.

I think we'll be looking at between 220k - 280k a week on average with the occasional spike of 370 - 450k when the bigger games release, depending on the title. I would think an Infamous: Second Son spike will be closer to my highest estimate and Thief my lower estimate (for example).

GribbleGrunger3773d ago

Just to note: Thief might be a bad example but you should get what I mean.

Rimeskeem3772d ago

Its going to be hilarious when you are wrong

NeoTribe3772d ago

Your prolly right. I think ps4 is winning by a larger margin than this. It surely will be once japan launches lol.

Prime1573772d ago

Hey, gribble, when do you take over for pachter? Lol.

I'm just saying, I agreed with your analysis as I've seen and concluded too.

abzdine3772d ago

i agree! take a screen fast so you can laugh at yourself when NPD numbers come out :)

BattleN3772d ago

I remember when WiiU was selling 3k a month so it looks like it's seeing a small boost unless the numbers are off like you say.

GribbleGrunger3772d ago

I just spotted a typo in one of my previous posts!

(probably between 800,000 to 2.2 million)

should be

(probably between 800,000 to 1.2 million)

Riderz13373773d ago

A bit of both really. PS4 doing super well, Xbox One is selling like shit (No offence to shit).

IIZANGETSUII3773d ago

Enough with your fanboyism, "selling like shit" even when its selling faster than 360? LMAO with your logic, just because the PS4 its the superior console and offers a better value overall doesnt mean the One is selling like "shit", get your facts straight.

Riderz13373773d ago

You're telling me to get my facts straight when you say the Xbone is selling faster than the 360?

Comparison to other consoles during the 1st week of their 1st February's:

Wii- 221k
PS4- 140k
360- 81k
PS3- 67k
Xbox One- 53k
Wii U- 37k

The Xbone is only selling faster than the Wii U.

Get your facts straight bro.
