PS4 55,385 (-8%) 3DS 41,235 (-5%) PS3 18,861 (-13%) XOne 11,950 (+13%) WiiU 11,313 (+15%) Note: Playstation total hardware sold was 563,515, compared to Microsoft and Nintendo combined 263,966 total hardware sold for the week ending 2/22/2014.
Yikes! Getting outsold 5:1 by a system that is impossible to find is embarrassing. Almost getting outsold 2:1 by the PS3 is even more embarrassing. The Xbox One is in competition with the Wii U, not the PS4.
XOne 11,950 WiiU 11,313 PSV 10,311 to put things in perspective, the Vita is 2 years old and the WiiU is over a year in the market but the "new" XB1 is barely competing with them.
I think it's safe to say that the xbox is officially dead everywhere except the US and maybe the UK. I still think they're gonna sell a ton of xbones but it ain't gonna be outside the US. Microsoft needs to focus on the US and offer some incentives for US buyers to want to purchase their system. they are trying to fight a loosing battle in Europe and the rest of the world. Regardless of what the xbone supporters want to think, things are not looking good for microsoft.
so basically there are 4 leagues: 1st - PS4 and 3DS 2nd - PS3 3rd - X1, WiiU and PSV 4th - X360, PSP, Wii Funny that each league has one Playstation system :D (Playstation domination) P.S. I believe PS3 will eventually outsell Wii worldwide and then there will be 4 generations of Playstation domination.
This is Europe, not the UK, PS4 is available in alot more territories, Xbox One has NOT even launched in the Nordic countries yet so everyone keep your Playstation skirts on lol
Still doesn't change the fact that the console is vastly outselling the Xbox One in almost all regions. The UK is part of Europe BTW,
Lol! "This is Europe, not the UK" Geographically the UK is a part of europe and it is also a member of the EU!
Stop it. US alone could outsell all those territories. The reason M$ hasn't released the xbone in other territories is, they thought that NA and EU combined would put them over the top.
What do the preorders look like in those territories?
@lolCHILLbro. You xbox fans are amazing. No matter how negative it looks for xbone, you always try to spin it round. Damage control much ? Even if you only count the UK figures, xbone is STILL getting a pounding in sales, you know M$ 2nd largest territory last gen. Tbh, if you look at it objectively, it's not looking good for xbone, anywhere.
Damn dude, u must be hurting inside watching your little pet xbone get stomped on
ps4 53 countries , xbox one 13 , there would be a big problem if sony wasn't killing them
@bleedsoe9mm the funny thing is, XbOne is not outselling the PS4 in any of those 13 countries either! have you taken that into consideration?
@bleedsoe9mm and @lolCHILLbro It's really getting hard to make this point without being insulting. It just boggles my mind that you, still, completely don't get it. 1) Xbox could have launched in the same territories Sony did, IF THEY WANTED TO. They did not, because they wanted to concentrate stock in the markets where 360 did the best, because they thought it would sell better there than if they diluted their stock by shipping to those other markets as well. 2) Markets are not equal! That ridiculous talking point about Sony selling more because they launched in more territories assumes that markets are equal. They are not. The US is a much bigger market than France, despite them both numerically representing one market each. The US could separate into 50 independent nation-states, or 50 markets, and 49 of those markets combined would still be smaller than the 1 market that was the US. Are you finally understanding? 3) So how's it looking for Xbox in the markets where it did launch against PS4?
Yeah, once Xbone launches in those Nordic countries, sales are going to go through the roof.
Microsoft seem to have forgotten all about those Tier 2 countries lol. Must suck. All those potential Titanfall sales.
The UK is a part of Europe... And there's a reason why Microsoft put focus in that one territory due to the fact that it was a major supporter of the Xbox 360. I guess the sides have really turned around. Actually, it's not a guess, it's a fact.
@bleedsoe9mm, VGChartz only records UK, Germany and France numbers as Europe. Xbone is in all of those. The difference would be far larger if they also included the other countries where it is not available. http://www.vgchartz.com/met...
@lolchillbro You know why Microsoft haven't launched in those territories? Because they were dominated there last gen and expect much the same this time around, so no big rush. Why run into the room with the bully when the outcome is never in doubt? There are eight, count em, eight ps4 games on that list of best sellers before you come to the top selling xbone game. An absolute smashing, is what that is. Case closed critter. Sony is killing them. Just because you can't, or won't, face reality doesn't mean the teeth aren't on the floor.
I did not know that BitbyDeath. So the gap would actually be larger cos theyre not counting any country in Europe that isnt UK, Germany or France? Besides, those 40 or so extra countries Xbone has yet to release in is going to translate into about 10k sales a week. So it might end up 5:2 instead of 5:1. Big whoop.
My shop prices: PS4 - 400 euros Xbox One - 590 euros 200 euro differences. Of cause cheaper will out sell higher priced console PS4 is in 48 countries, Xbox One is in 13 countries.
"PS4 is in 48 countries, Xbox One is in 13 countries" The Xbox One is being outsold in every country the 360 succeeded in and every single major market. The Xbox 360 sells next to nothing in the countries the Xbox One is unavailable. Ex. Japan is the next biggest market and the 360 barely broke a million in 7 years. Since you obviously not sharp at math that's roughly 12,000 per month average. But hey, you want to keep the dream alive, be my guest.
Superman just smoked to much green stuff lately(I meant kryptonite of course) 590 euros for Xbox1 Where do you shop? Harrods London,
@Superman Now explain to me how an expensier ps3 system outsold a chiper 360 system worldwide???
Lol. Not only is it embarrassing, but it literally defies all logic. Obviously it's not as hard to find as you keep saying...
Ouch getting outsold 5-1 and with the announcement of the price cut and Titansfall bundle that's not good for Microsoft
Hopefully when Titan Fall comes out Xbox One can at least start keeping up with sales of the PS3.
I hope that xbox one will sell, I want them to force playstation to stay at the top of their game
Either that or maybe its just time for some new competition.
that's the only thing im afraid of. Sony may get cocky again. that's what hurt them launching ps3. but hopefully they keep everything together and don't do stupid crap.
When the PS2 was burying the competition, did Sony cease to innovate with the little black box? No. The idea that competition is always good for the buyer is one of the great misleading statements of consumer affairs. It is true on occasion, just not all the time nor in every circumstance. If developers were able to concentrate on one console alone without parsing off resources, the competition would then shift to where it should - between publishers and dev houses pushing that platform farther with the best title and the most features. Every game for the PS4 would be an exclusive. Think about the innovation possible at that point.
@kane22 - I personally can't wait for Sony to blunder again like they did with the PS3 as you see it. The PS3 was and still is a fantastic console, even for the £425 I paid for the launch edition. I still feel I got way more than my moneys worth for it.
@Kane22 I doubt they'll get arrogant again. Look at the PS2 and how well the PS1 did. I'm aware of what they did with the PS3 in the early days but I believe that one mistake gave Sony a better understanding of what people really want. And they always talk about how they want the PS4 to be like the PS2 all over again and Sony is known to keep most of it's promises and stay consistent.
dat PS4 baby!
Being outsold by an 8 year old system.. ouch!!!
I highly doubt "tier 2" countries will do much for Xbox One sales. They're smaller markets already dominated by PS3/4, except even worse since PS4 already launched ahead of them. Based on current European sales, I'd guess launching in those extra European countries would bring in an extra 5-7k a month, maybe. Not even enough to move the needle globally. There are reports that some of those European countries already have stacks of grey market imported Xbox Ones. And we know Xbox is all but dead in Japan and most of Asia. Xbox's best bet is to drop the price to $300 and release tons of good exclusives. That's what allowed PS3 to recover in NA and UK.
Ps3 was 1 year late and 2 holidays seasons late in some territories. And yet .... Well the rest is history.
I don't know why MS doesn't start releasing in more European regions. They seem to have plenty of stock on the shelves. They're just letting Sony run away in those regions with no competition. Even then I still think the ratio will be 5:1.5 in Sony's favor. The PS4 is just a much better gaming console. I knew the PS4 was going to sell much better that the xbone in Europe, but when people kept saying ratios of 5:1 I thought that was way to high. Turns out they were absolutely right. I guess this is what happens when the competition in more expensive yet has much weaker hardware and thanks to the internet people seem to be more informed. I reckon a lot of people are still sour about MS trying to take away their basic consumer rights with DRM has a hand in it too. Playstation domination indeed. Sony has basically made all the right decisions, where as MS probably couldn't have pissed off more gamers if they tried.
What would be the point? Those countries are places where the xxbone brand sells poorly anyway . it's best they concentrate on the rregions they actually have a chance in.
I think that the PS4's popularity can be summed up using a simple formula: PS2 x 2 = PS4 Easy peasy ;)
I honestly don't think titanfall will be enough... It might boos xb1 sales abit, but not enough to overtake ps4.
I'm not one to complain about sales articles, but these articles are really nothing but dupes. The same information was contained in the first VG article for the week ending 2/22/14. All you have to do is click on "Europe" and you get this. Click on "global," you get the global numbers, and so on and so on.
Xbox brand is pretty much dead this generation 100$ more for less time for Microsoft to consider a kinectless bundle to stay in the game.
Dead? Not yet. Release a bundle? Heck yes. It's like they don't want me to buy an Xbox One.
I haven't heard from truefan in a long time. All the Defense of Xbone in futility must finally be getting to him. He cant even defend a console that is getting bent over and raped by the competition. Man even the ps3 is outselling the Xbone1. Now it seems its between the wiiU and the Xbox1. Playstation Domination!!!
Maybe hes just on holiday this week. But more likely PS3 outselling it(globally as well as Europe) was the straw that broke the camels back.
Most xbfans think Sony is not getting ready for titanfall. Look how little stock they dispatched in N.A. And EU territories the last two weeks of February. Believe me when I say that it had nothing to do with the Japanese launch(these stocks have been gradually prepped up since N.A. Launch) What You're gonna see in the coming days is SONY dispatching a huge stock pile for N.A. and EU territories just to counteract any Xboxone sales spike.
Why do people keep bringing up "53/43/99 million versus 13" as if the Xbox is winning in those 13 regions?
PS4, 3DS, PS3 are down.... Wii U and xone are Up. Tropical Freeze had better sales than I was waiting for.
Every time these charts go up people conveniently ignore the drop in sales for the PS4 and 3DS.
How bad do you want things to look? An 8% drop for the PS4 and a 13% increase for the XB1 still sees the latter being outsold 5:1; hell, a 13% drop for the PS3 and it still sells at greater than 1.5:1 against the XB1. Do you really want people taking note of that? That a double-digit increase for the XB1 still isn't even enough for it to surpass a last-gen console that saw a double-digit DECREASE in sales? That the XB1 close to doubled the percentage that the PS4 lost, and it's STILL getting decimated? And it's not "every time," either. You'll actually note quite a few people make note of those changes in other articles; just hasn't happened here.
Years ago if you asked me who was going to dominate next gen like this, I would have said MS, hands down.
