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

BrandanT2924d ago

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

trunkswd2923d ago

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

wonderfulmonkeyman2923d 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.

superchiller2922d 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.

Xavy2923d ago

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

Dabigkahuna762923d ago

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

Eonjay2923d ago

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

rainslacker2923d ago (Edited 2923d 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.

RiPPn2923d 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.

You seem hurt by it though

GrubsterBeater2923d ago

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

BossBattle2923d ago

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

RiPPn2922d ago

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

BossBattle2922d 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.

RiPPn2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

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

BossBattle2922d ago

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

CaptainObvious8782922d ago

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

BossBattle2922d ago (Edited 2922d ago )

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

Gol3m2922d 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

BossBattle2922d ago (Edited 2922d 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

Gol3m2920d 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

BossBattle2920d ago

@gol3m maybe you're just a dumb motherfucker then
