I'm sure this has been asked a million times before, but why do VGChartz list the cumulative, life-to-date sales of the 360 as being higher than Microsoft's last shipped-to-retail number, while they list the PS3's life-to-date sales lower than Sony's last report.

Also, is that a typo on the Killzone sales? First of all, it says Killzone, when they're obviously talking about Killzone 2, second they've got it down at 284,000 which would be fifth place, not tenth place. Something's wrong.

On a side note, I find it interesting that Resident Evil 5 is selling almost as well on the PS3 as the 360 considering the bigger installed base of the 360. This seems to be happening with a lot of multiplatform games these days, and if I recall correctly, even Grand Theft Auto IV sold the same on both systems, according to Rockstar.

yeah it seems like a typo or error by whoever posted this, its been changed vg has KZ2 at 84K for the week, I thought vg basicly guestimates the hardware sales each week for both consoles, then adjusts based on npd and both companies latest official data, wash, rinse & repeat. Also I do find it interesting ps3 multiplats are starting to sell better, although in general its seem to be mainly with games like RE and GTA which have built more of a fanbase on ps platform, with hardware sales not showing a rise, that also points to MORE CURRENT ps3 owners favoring those franchises than current 360 owners, but hey thats just my guess, I could be wrong, either way its good news but lets wait and see if we can actually call it a trend.


chrisnick3496d ago

do they seriously expect us to believe that kz2 sold 84000 in a week around the world? they need a better source besides their imaginations.

Chubear3496d ago

I used to be on that site over 2 years ago but when I realized they were trying to portray themselves as even better and more legit than the likes of NPD, I just said no more

.. that and the fact the forums were over loaded with the most delusioned rabid Nintendo fanatics you'll ever meet - ever and it always seemed to have horrible viruses almost every time you visited the site.

NPD also got mad with them about 2yrs back and cut them off from accessing their info. NPD were pretty mad with VGC back then.

mmm... so, kill zone 2.. is still struggling to sell as much a Resident Evil? (and I am not talking about counting both PS3 and xbox 360 versions). but any of them.

@callahan09 - I don't find it interesting at all.. that Resident evil is selling close to the xbox 360... since Resident Evil is known by the Playstation fanbase more than it is on the xbox. Resident Evil is yet to build an fanbase on the xbox brand since this one is the first.. so it's obvious.. don't you think?

That's like expecting Halo to sell the same on the Playstation if it would be multiplatform.

If you want a fair comparison why don't you compare games like Call of Duty which did not originated on any console but on the PC.

How about this:

COD:WW - Xbox 360 sold: 5.19m
COD:WW - Wii sold: 1.02m
COD:WW - PS3 sold: 3.10m

ohh god how is that possible.. I mean.. the wii have a huge intallbase over the xbox 360 and the PS3 and yet sold 5 times less than the xbox 360 and even 3 times less than the PS3!

This is the case for lots of games.. don't try to dig too much.. there are many variables of why some games may sell a bit better on the PS3... and Resident Evil... is an obvious one... mmm.. uhhh... how many other Resident evil games were ever released on the xbox 360?

This can also be seems as: Even when a game originate on the Playstation and no fanbase exist for a game that used to be exclusive to Playstation.. it can still sell more on the xbox 360.

Do you know its for the week not life time? freaking punk

morganfell3496d ago

It took 11 reports to kill and anti-360 story day before yesterday. We are up to 14 fakes on this one. What is the story?

Microsoft Xbox 3603496d ago

There is a reason why the Wii sold less than the 360 and PS3. [email protected] is nothing like the HD counterpart! It sucks.

ultimolu3496d ago (Edited 3496d ago )

....Why don't you get married to Greenburg?

Because the amount of Sony/PS3 bashing you do really astounds me.

I still cannot believe we're allow VG Chartz on this site when they've been proven wrong time and time again!

gamesmaster3496d ago

street fighter IV? yes shut the f*ck up

Bladestar3496d ago

lol Street Fighter?

mmm.. wow... There is a reason why a 2D/3D sold better on the PS3 over the xbox 360... for now lets ignore the fact that each console has not reach 1 million...

I have friends that own both consoles.. and because of the dpad which sucks for 2D fighters they would buy the PS3 version... I personally did not buy the game specifically because of that.

if I were you I wouldn't be use a game that has not reach 1 million on any of the consoles... that the PS3 is leading for less than 50,000... and that Halo Wars and RTS game is beating in terms of sells.

9 - Halo Wars (X360) 88,864
10 - Killzone 2 (PS3) 284,394

I think 88k is smaller then 284k.

Also VG Charts are NA only not WW -_-' and Fabricated, never right.

Johnny Rotten3496d ago (Edited 3496d ago )

on their website the number is 84,394.

edit: it's fixed.

happyface3496d ago

Halo Wars is outselling Killzone hahaha lol

0verdrive3496d ago

ok i took the bait

your an idiot happyface. first of all, this is vgchartz, and we all know that vgchartz dont know sht about numbers. secondly, according to vgchartz, a site that practically makes up all the numbers, HW sold 4,000 copies more this week, but kz2 apparently has 1.33x as many lifetime sales as HW, according to vgc. in what universe is 900k > 1.2m? anyways, your pretty stupid, and that's that.

happyface3496d ago

the most hyped ps3 exclusive ever losing to a Halo RTS = LOL

if this was a real Halo game k2 would be getting its ass spanked

hippo243496d ago

While I know VGcharts is notoriasly unreliable...Halo Wars above Killzone.
