This week we will be taking a look at the top 10 selling games worldwide in 2013. As a note all sales figures are retail only.
Holy crap, EA almost sold as many games as Nintendo. Who would of thought that like ten years ago. Also ps3 sales look awesome. My ps3 just broke (first system to ever break on me, 360's been on suicide watch since 2008), do you think i should get a slim or super slim?
wait what? Based off of that list how did you get anywhere near that conclusion? EA Games sold in 2013 according to list - 8.71 million Nintendo games sold according to list - 17.53 million shouldn't your statement be: "Holy crap, EA almost sold HALF as many games as Nintendo."
That's just the top 10. "Nintendo sold the most games with 60.96 million games. Electronic Arts sold 60.02 million games..." I mean this is still vgchartz anyway xD
Concertoine - oh gotcha. Well to be fair, EA exists on several different platforms, Nintendo only 2. But regardless, both companies sold a boat load of software.
don't bother debating the numbers because non of them is real. we need to report VGChartz submissions as fake everybody should do this to all the VGChartz submissions in the pending section.
Jesus, they've still got TLOU at 4.25 million. It was announced by Sony themselves over 8 months ago that it sold 6 million. Never ever rely on VGC for software sales (just a tip).
maybe VGChartz didn't include digital sales and Sony's did? And they announced it sold 6 million just last month. http://www.gamespot.com/art... but it doesn't clarify if that was sold to the end user or just to stores.
I doubt TLOU sold 1.79 million digitally. I put 4.25m it should have been 4.21m just in case you question my maths.
regardless, they only made the 6 million announcement last month before the GDC, so I don't know where you got 8 months ago.
You are right, I don't know where I got the 8 'months ago' either LOL. I was pretty certain they did announce it back then but clearly I'm wrong. Either way, people should never ever use VGC software numbers, they're not even ball-park worthy and never have been.
@Gribble - yeah, I think they made an announcement a few months after that they had sold like 3 million, so maybe that's what you were thinking of. Agreed, VGChartz has to be taken with a huge grain of salt. But at the same time, sometimes it's the most reliable numbers we have.
i would rather see no numbers than to have unreliable data.
Theyre talking about TLOU copies sold in 2013 alone, not 2014. I'm sure theyre still off but not ridiculously off. And 8 months ago TLOU had no where near 6 million. 8 months ago was August, only 2 months after launch they had around 2 or 3 million.
vgchartz so it's a given but somewhere in there it should have said "digital sales not included"
Yeah. But it doesn't include digital for ALL systems. So that should make the trends between the newest consoles a wash. What I found interesting was the April 12th global game sales. 1 X360 Titanfall 398,404 2 PS3 3rd Super Robot Wars Z Jigoku 148,008 3 PSV 3rd Super Robot Wars Z Jigok 126,941 4 XOne Titanfall 120,137 5 XOne Kinect Sports Rivals 90,919 6 PS4 inFAMOUS: Second Son 66,472 7 X360 Minecraft 63,667 8 PC The Elder Scrolls Online 50,824 9 PS3 Call of Duty: Ghosts 48,791 10 X360 LEGO The Hobbit 48,447 You ladies can all argue till you turn blue in the face over console hardware sales, but there's no money in that. ALL the money is in the games. And that chart shows Xbone clearly destroying PS4 in game sales... for that week.
You need help. Microsoft is losing console sales and game sales, with multiplats available on both ps4 and xbone routinely selling more copy for Sony's system. Seriously, get some help. What you've done is similar to what Microsoft did when they claimed "victory" in sales for December 2013 when the only reason they "won" was the ps4 was sold out everywhere and unavailable. What a "win". Now you're comparing a week in which Titanfall is newly available for the 360, yet ignore the fact despite Titanfall sales the ps4 outsold the xbone in March, and leads convincingly in software sales across the board. Help is what you need, and help is what you must seek. Sony wins hardware and software, and your poor scrotum can't handle it. Good luck with that.
@aquamala nothing is included VGCharts doesn't have any sources.
i think gta5 broke many sales records.
don't trust VGChartz
So the Last of Us is the only exclusive game on that list. That's pretty awesome.
Aaaaand you totally disregarded the Nintendo games.
Wow, PS3 really came back fighting last gen. I thought 360 dominated game sales for multiplats.
