Even with VgChartz infamously over tracking the Xbox, the Kinectless Xbox One sold a bit more than 5000 more than PS4 on it's first week in the US. I fully expect PS4 to win this months NPD. This is a massive blow to Microsoft if this is even semi accurate, they needed way more than this 13% increase.
Well, I expect it to win to... because January, February, MARCH, and April, it showed the Xbox One ahead and those four months it was not. In May they over tracked both, but for some reason, their Xbox One number are always way off - almost embellished. So, I really don't have any other reason to believe otherwise. About Sales predictions: NeoGaf is hilarious. They do their own sales predictions and most of them are more accurate at guessing than this site.
It's amusing that he has that many disagrees, when his point is pretty solid. I cannot believe people still use VGC as a rough measuring stick, when their numbers have been off by more than 100k for a console in a single month. Being off by 100k is absolutely insane and shows their numbers have zero merit. Which is why (like you said), people on NeoGAF are able to guess much closer to the units sold, than whatever VGC spews for the month.
Anyone notice the software totals? Xbone is beating PS4 in game sales by 330,000. And keep in mind, the profit margins on these consoles is pretty much zero or perhaps a few bucks. The money is in the game sales. And M$ is kicking sony's butt.
So Andrew, you're telling us you actually believe these numbers? Pretty much nobody does, and that's why your comment is kind of mute. Yes, everyone no probably noticed. No, I doubt if anyone actually cares. I don't even look at VGC numbers anymore. I just come for the comments ;)
^andrew 22 mil vs 15 mil software worldwide. Now tell me whose kicking the other's butt. What a flop that the X1 will lose to the PS4 when they're the same price. Go eat crow for those who said the PS4 is only doing this because they are cheaper by $100. The fact is the PS4 would beat the X1 even if they are $100 more.
Relax bro, the fear is oozing from your pores jeezus its just one week lol.
Oh, its not an Xbox vs PS4 thing really. They get everyone wrong. Last month they had Wii U over Xbox One (Which was itself overtracked by nearly 30k) and the PS4 was also overtracked. They are wrong. Like really really wrong - consistently. You don't fear Vg-Chargtz, you struggle to understand their methods. Thats the most any of us can hope to do with these numbers.
Fear? What I see from that comment is real talk.
@MysticStrummer Real talk is constantly reminding (maybe even reassuring) everyone that VGChartz is listed as rumour instead of fact?
@plow got sol fear or not he is speaking the truth.
I guess they (VGchartz) figure that one day the Xone will outsell the PS4. When it happens they are going to be ready lol.
I'd be completely shocked if Xbone outsold Ps4 that week, but not the week before it when the Kinectless box released (even if it was 5 out of 7 days - People were supposedly waiting, right? The sales in the first few days should have been explosive).
Vgchartz Xbone wins month of May NPD Ps4 best selling console in May.
That is all!!!!
VGChartz pull numbers out of there ass NPD get numbers direct from sellers
Even though the Xbox1 is a niche American product...And it selling more in the USA then other consoles should be expected...MS still deserves some congrats...
http://rs73.pbsrc.com/album... all I have to say
Not that great of a boost for the xbone. I got a feeling that the PS4 will win the month of June.
Not only that the extra boost Xbox probably got that week won't continue as all those who bought it that week was those who were waiting to buy it cheaper will have that week. After that week those sales will be gone.. It's like a launch week again..
Glad WiiU still selling at a steady pace. With the free game promotion now's the right time to buy this awesome game machine
Steady pace? They've been down 20% for like, 3 weeks in a row. Another week or two like this and they'll be back to their incredibly low pre-MK8 numbers.
just hold on for the npd results.
You need some bubbles. That was the most intelligent comment here.
Well done MS and Nintendo keep the good times rolling in thanks for the fun.
VG charts should never be taken seriously...ever. A person with common sense would wait for NPD. VG charts has proven itself wrong many times in the past. Even IF this is somehow miraculously true.. X1 would need to sell 15k+ more for the last week of june in order to "win". It's unlikely.
Sweet, inaccurate ESTIMATES; which also happen to be adjusted, post-publication, on almost every week. VGChartz isn't a relevant source of information. The numbers on that site are not credible, or accurate -- and as much has been confirmed by the owner of that very site. Estimates are not accurate numbers. Stick with NPD, and that sort.
Vgchartz still overtracks Xbone and undertracks PS4. Can't believe anyone would think the Xbone would outsell the PS4 at that high a margin
i guess people were bored of counting pixels & playing indie games
So they used that time to make up sales numbers which will be adjusted when NPD comes out ?
Unlike last gen, the Amazon charts have accurately portrayed what's going on in sales.
Yeah BC Amazon is the only place that sales consoles /s lets just forget about Walmart, GameStop, Sam's Club, Target etc.
I stated "accurately PORTRAYED". A portrayal is not an exact measurement or the real thing, it's just a picture that gives a sense as to what the real thing is.
Sells consoles not sales consoles , can you not see that when typing or even re-reading your comment ?
This site is truly hilarious. Any news of the Xbox One selling more than PS4 and it's instant damage control from the frenzy of sony fanboys on this site. I mean for some unknown reason VGChartz overtracks Xbox and not any other console.... think about this everyone...why would VGC do this and to what purpose or agenda are they trying to achieve? Its beyond silly and is the prime reason sony fanboys are looked as fanatical. That they make up insane conspiracy theories to justify why their console may not be doing well this week.
Yet the same fanboys have been calling out VG charts for months even tho the ps4 has been ahead for 5 months ? Yeh that makes lots of sense lol. The VG site is run by an xbone fangirl and has always over estimated xbox that's why people call them out no matter if ps4 is ahead or not.
They have no choice when they spent an entire gen spouting the ridiculousness of the site being ran by some Xbox fanboy. Now they celebrate PS4 sales but still remind people that the site can't be trusted when and if the Xbox is ahead like this here article. A very convenient set up for when and if the X1 does pull ahead. Where is this proof that the site is ran by a Xbox Fangirl and what does this person have to gain as Spacecat pointed out? The only people who seem to call them out are Sony fanboys ...kinda of makes you wonder right? Not Nintendo, Not MS, just sony is undertracked...
Another sony fanboy saying this site is MS biased. Yea, no bias in this statement at all. still not seeing the point or bottomline as to why anyone would overtrack the Xbox Only. @maniac Lost cause dude, as you can see this conspiracy seems to only affect sony.
You didn't know? VG chart is a privately run site by an xbot. He has admitted it on several occasions and is on record on two separate forums as having admitted to pulling the numbers out of his ass. He also cooks his numbers to favor MS every posting. It is his M.O.
Of course its a privately ran site by a known xbox fanboy. Why else would this site constantly keep submitting this article and not ban it. I mean if this where true right? Where is the legitimate link from a credible source? This is just another case of people pretending this is true like how Polygon was in MS pocket when they rate sony games low, or how IGN was biased against Sony, (cant spell ignorance withouth IGN), im sure there's other examples I could use but I think u all see the pattern and why its way too hard to take anything you guys say seriously.
Bout time they showed ahead of something. If you can't win your own territory whats the point? Congratulations.
Amazing that this site hasn't been banned yet for blatant misrepresentation yet they couldn't ban HHG fast enough. Do they even want gaming news to be discussed or are they just interested in click bait articles? Is this all n4g has become? What type of integrity or lack of operates here? On topic: don't trust any of these numbers from vgc
