Coming off the Black Friday high, videogame sales are down a bit this week, but the drop is typical. Sales will begin rising again in the run up to the Christmas-Eve madness.
Sales numbers.Gives me a good time to check my stocks.
Might want to wait for NPD numbers before you making any drastic decisions to your portfolio. According to VG Chartz, Mk vs. DC Universe should have been in the top 10 NPD for Novemeber, unfortuently it wasn't even in the top 20. (Sold like 130k ish on the 360 with around 100ish on the PS3)
LBP is not a FLOP...says vg...
According to Vgcharts Sony sold a bit more than 7 mil in 2007,according to Sony's official number they Sold 8.8 mil PS3...I wonder who is right!lol
But it is nice to see the consoles still doing very well. Great news for gamers... It would be nice to see the PS3 reach that 20 million mark...
is an Americas? And how is it pronounced? My guess would be Uh-mare-ee-cass, but I'm phonetically challenged so take it with a grain of salt. Whatever the case, feel free to chime-in if you have any clue what the hell is going on here and what f*ck1ng alternate universe these week ending sales are taking place in. PS: I'm sorry...I'm just a bit grumpy today. I have this little pet-peeve when it comes to the incorrect usage of the apostrophe. I'll admit that it's a little odd and maybe even a bit trivial, but if I don't feed the ego who's to say that Id won't come-a-knockin'? Speaking of Id, if one more person says the word "than" when they mean to say "then", or vice versa, I think my head might just paint the world red, so to speak.
Yet the $500.00 160GB Uncharted bundle is sold-out on bestbuy.com Go see for yourself. Someone's been buying it
whats my name?
VGChartzzz with a z
lets see how many disagrees i get...
lets see how many agrees i get...
Shenmue II, KOTOR etc. I can agree to that.
lets see how many agrees I get..
This kind of proves that there are mostly ps3 fans here :) On an other note vgchartz has been pretty close to NPD numbers... So who can we trust with sales numbers? The big company's usually only release shipped numbers.
Wow , Shenmue II and KOTOR was good ....I love my PS3 games but I still got love for those games too.
lets see how many agrees I get.
Megan Fox is a babe see how many agrees i get.
breakfast is a poor underaged virgin teenage boy who cries for attention on N4G. Let's see how many... Eh nevermind, we all know the truth.
all know which game system in the BEST
I guess there is no point of undermining VGChartz... it seems the PS3 is doing bad on all charts including NPD... If one compares NPD vs VGChartz it seems like VGchartz weren't that off for the month of November... as matter of fact they were more generous for the PS3... Same goes for the month of October.... The ratio seems to be on par with NPD... that means that whether you like it or not... VGCharts seems to be somewhat correct...
Saved for future reference. Thanks mate. Hope that decision doesn't come back to bite you some day.
It's amazing to me since you don't even own a PS3 and you don't like it yet it's rare you don't mention them in your comments. 90% of your comments are Sony related. It's like they did something to you that's got you emotionally butt hurt. VGChartz is crap. LBP didn't sell a million yet it did on VGChartz. It's seems like it's rarely accurate. I don't know why the site's news get approved on here when we get the real numbers which proves VGChartz is spreading FALSE information.
These are the fastest ESTIMATES we can get on sales numbers. They are bound to not always be 100% correct, but often very close to the NPD numbers witch are supposed to be better but not published so often. I do not really see the problem posting these numbers. We all know they are ESTIMATES and usually tell who is selling better. (If you need that kind of thing to continuously justify your own console)
I always giggle when I see VGCharts guesstimations. They are getting better at guessing, but they are still guessing. Unless they use witchcraft and/or voodoo to come up with the numbers. I suppose anything is possible. -Death
They get numbers from many retailers and estimate from those numbers. Same as NPD does.
they get non up to date estimates from many retailers, and approximate others...unlike NPD...VGChartz tries to justify its usefullness by approximating worldwide trends...which others do not (as they focus on only one market region)...that is the only reason they are around... NPD is a group dedicated to this industry for investors and shareholders...VGchartz is a free website dedicated to this industry for fanboys...there IS a difference... NPD is a credible paid for source that spends millions researching this stuff, giving valuable feedback to the publishers...VG doesn't...you can clearly see in 'real' comparisons just how much guessing VG actually does...
vgchartz = Yawn. Zzzzzz......
Xbox 360 275,377 :-D PS3 145,182 T.T ;-D STUPID Ken Kutagari Where you at?
Xbox 360 275,377 >> 90% of all these consoles sold will RROD in 3 months... PS3 145,182 > 0% wont fail...>Ken Kutaragi >> Genious
people still try to take VGChartz as reliable in any way shape or form?
I agree with Monty.I have no problems with estimates but vgchartz is inaccurate.When it comes to math,making a single mistake is wrong.
All numbers except shipped numbers are estimates. Almost all real world math is basted on estimated/simplified information in one form or an other.
Good Ol' VGCHARTZ if it supports your console of choice it is "fairly accurate, and good enough to go by", but when it doesn't, then it's "just random guessing, and bad guesses at that, and simply can not ever in any instance be used as a solid source, and should no matter what, be considered nothing short of a page full of lies". :)
Great, sales sales sales!!! =D Mh...... and? To be honest, if a console sold more or less i don't care, i'm having fun anyway, my games don't get suddenly ugly cause my console sold XX% less. "Producers won't make games on the console if it sells bad!" ok, but about my PS3: 1) it's not selling 0 2) the games i really want are from Sony and first parties, so i don't think that they will stop supporting THEIR console 3) i'm not fan of the multiplatforms, i go for the exclusives (for all my consoles, PS3, X360 and Wii) since the best games i saw, according to me, are exclusives (and they will be, but FF and Tekken) As usual i think these reports are only for console war, since they COULD be interesting if ppl look at them as "free infos" to see what ppl get or so and not as "hahaha!!! get this!! your console sold less!!! F*ck!! hahahah!!!"... and this shows not only stupidity, but some parental link with Ronald McDonald (i hate that clown)
why do you people care about sales? You guys act if you are the ones making money from these sales!
Are you an idiot? "0% wont fail". That means all of those Ps3s will fail. Also, irony at it's best. It's Genius, genius... You're not even a good fanboy...
numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, especialy when its off some site run by a bunch of guys.
PS3rd cancelled by sony early 2009!
Does Microsoft count the Failed Consoles? Anyone know?
the NPD is going to say the ps3 sold more than the 360 right?
VGChartz has good guestimations. They are usually pretty close to the NPD.
Those are some weird games in the top 10 huh... Kung fu Panda... Indiana jones lego..... add gears of war 2 to that list.... I mean this is funny but scary. Looks like the 360 is becoming the new wii
Once again, MS continues to dominate the POS3. Phony will sell less than a million by end of holiday sales. Pretty pathetic.
in some cases they over and undertrack console sales and such, but they for the most part are in a remote to close estimate, they only alter the numbers once NPD is released
