May PS4 sales are going to be through the roof!

trunkswd1216d ago

PS4 sales are showing no signs of slowing down.

I'm curious to see the May sales as well because of Uncharted 4.

BrandanT1216d ago

Is it even fair to say "vs. Wii U" any more?

trunkswd1216d ago

Probably not. This chart is meant to compare the 3 8th gen home consoles.

wonderfulmonkeyman1216d ago

The Wii U is a part of the 8th gen, though, so logically it should be mentioned even if it is a distant third.

superchiller1215d ago

In terms of technology, Wii U is really a part of the 7th generation, so it should be compared to the 360 and PS3. There are only two 8th generation consoles, the PS4 and XB1.

Xavy1216d ago

Hmm didnt EA say something about 18mil for X1 not so long ago? Over tracking with 3mil+ is kinda funny

Dabigkahuna761215d ago

What if they did sell 21plus million how would you deal with that?

Eonjay1215d ago

I mean its still nearly 100% behind the PS4 so does it really matter though.

rainslacker1215d ago (Edited 1215d ago )

Was a few months ago, but yeah. however, he said he was only guessing, or implied it was an estimate. I'd imagine he's about as close as VGChartz is with their guesses. I think Sony had something about shipping 40 million recently, but can't remember the details.

RiPPn1215d ago

Xbox numbers seem high, they were somewhere around 19 mil at the beginning of the year and have sold around 800k in the first 4 months NPD.. rest of the world have been abysmal so no way they get another 1.2 mil from them.. chartz always over guestimates in Xbox favor.

SirJoJo1215d ago

Seriously what? Its a frigging chart put together by people who are actually in the know and have been doing this for pretty long time and you think you know better because fanboy logic! PS4 is dominating which is nice, Xbox is doing well, which is also nice, wii U... well lets leave it there.

RiPPn1215d ago

lol, they actually know what exactly, how to guess numbers and put them on a chart? They have no access to actual data and usually end up correcting their numbers when real data is released.. the comedy here is you actually believe they are legit.

rainslacker1215d ago

They aren't in the know. They use data gleaned from people's statements, and supposedly by sampling retailers which they don't provide enough information on to know if their sample pool is worthwhile. They have often been shown to be off on their numbers when official numbers are released. Sometimes by a lot, sometimes by not so much....thus proving they aren't really in the know. We have users on this site who are closer in their numbers using statements from various sources over time.

Dabigkahuna761215d ago (Edited 1215d ago )

You seem hurt by it though

GrubsterBeater1215d ago

Nobody is hurt by it. You wish people were, but trust me, they aren't.

BossBattle1215d ago

Yeah it would seem high to a fanboy. You're probably thinking they sold only 1 million.

RiPPn1215d ago

Only a fanboy would be hurt by my comment thinking it was fanboy motivated.. you're probably thinking they sold 40 million.

BossBattle1215d ago

It doesn't hurt me because I have both a PS4 and X1. And I'll buy the PS4K and Xbox 1.5. See the difference is that I'm a gamer while you're a fanboy.

RiPPn1215d ago (Edited 1215d ago )

I own both also, and you're the only one throwing around the "fanboy" word.. those who live in glass houses..

BossBattle1215d ago

Just go play Uncharted 4 multiplayer and have the most fun ever fannyboy /

CaptainObvious8781215d ago

Funny how you think owning both consoles automatically dissolves you of been a fanboy, so you unapologetically act like a fanboy...

BossBattle1215d ago (Edited 1215d ago )

@captainobvious Funny how you think I'm a fanboy just because I think Uncharted 4 is flawed.

Gol3m1215d ago

No he knows you're a fanboy because of your comment history. Come on now don't be naive. No one actually believes you own a ps4 give it up already

BossBattle1215d ago (Edited 1215d ago )

@gol3m please explain how I would know that the physics in Uncharted are off when I say that in the beginning on the boat going against waves has no turbulence that you can feel in the controller....I'll wait. Maybe you'll say that gamestop has the whole game on display to play. Go ahead...waiting

Gol3m1213d ago

Boss Battle wtf are you talking about? Are you somehow saying because you don't get feedback on a controller the physics of a game are off? That's the dumbest shit I've ever heard

BossBattle1213d ago

@gol3m maybe you're just a dumb motherfucker then

Letthewookiewin1215d ago (Edited 1215d ago )

Lol, nice and cool like a dead body.....

Dabigkahuna761215d ago

I luv it right along with my PS4

phoenix_dusk1215d ago

I've been taught by mother not to say anything bad about the dead. Xbone is dead. Good.

BossBattle1215d ago

Not dead as long as Gears and Crackdown coming this year.

CaptainObvious8781215d ago

Sure, but I have a gaming PC so I have virtually no use at all for an xbone.
