How are the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 performing against themselves and each other when compared to previous years?
Interesting information. I really like this for investing purposes. Not that I don't own MS, it is just that the price of my stock will slump, which means I will buy more because MS isn't going anywhere. I also will pump more into SONY since their sales are increasing in a down year.
"I really like this for investing purposes" Fake sales numbers made up by some 20 something year old Xbox fan? Hey, it's your money...
gap is getting smaller,sony should close it to 1 -2 mill by the end of the year.
numbers are not reall, the gap is probably already a lot smaller than that, as it was the last time we had any reall numbers.
Britney Spears - your name alone make you lose credibility! From this day on, your post mean nothing! Sorry dude.
At the end of Jan we learned from Sony via their financial updates that the PS3 had sold 33.5 million consoles so far. VGchartz's numbers were off by almost THREE MILLION units from the official data. Now, there once was a time when Vgchartz would make adjustments to their figures when the official data from each company was out of sorts. Any respect I had for this site died the second they stopped recognizing the official ship data and making adjustments accordingly. Edit: @ thorstein comments above. I wouldn't be bothering yourself with consoles sales as they make up just a fraction of each company's total revenue. Having worked in the brokerage industry for nearly a decade, I can tell you that only once have I ever heard consoles sales discussed in depth when going over the quarterly reviews. You might as well focus on Zune sales as an indicator of how Microsoft's stock is going. It's about as insignificant from an investors standpoint. Get your research from a reputable source or brokerage site for your investing info, not Vgchartz guesstimates. Edit 2: And look! You're making me agree with GiantEnemyCrab. No one wants to see that. Stop posting Vgchartz numbers.
Industry News? It should be filed under Fiction.
stop posting numbers from vgchartz!
still not updated to the real numbers released at the end of 09 by all three companies, so untill they do this is just made up rubish.
In short, Nintendo is in first, Microsoft is in second, and Sony is still in laaaaaaaaaaaaast place. :)
I mean, if the date that the console launched doesn't mean anything to you then the PS2 is still kicking everyone's ass.
I know thats a comfort to you, and it helps you sleep at night, but when it comes to the best games, the best hardware, and the happiest customers, Sony is waaaaaaaaaaay (see I can do that too) out in front. M$ dont do anything except react, they never just act. All you have left to brag about is what you've been bragging about for 4 years, a lead obtained not by selling quicker but by selling earlier, too early in fact since the machine wasnt even finished or tested. I wonder what happenes when Sony does real in that lead. I dont really care as it will happen eventually even if its after M$ dumps 360 for the next console again. But will you and your one console owning brethern leap from cliffs en masse, or maybe just fade into obscurity like most of them have around here? Either way, I'm looking forward to the silence.
weren't you just in the survey for failure rates article talking about how no one should mention the ps2's failure rate back in the day because it was last gen? but its ok to mention the sells of a last gen console in a sells article that deals with THIS GEN right? lmao HYPOCRITE you're a joke. oh and by the way for your first comment in here, you say not to use vg chartz? lmao again i dunno how many times i have seen your kind on n4g post vg chartz numbers. (ps3 fanboys="your kind") ill be honest sure these numbers prolly aren't a 100% but hell i bet you microsoft's and sony's aren't 100% neither. nothing is kiddo, but to me i look at this data like anyone should, it's an estimate. and since all you guys claim so much that ps3's are sold out EVERYWHERE which i'll agree for the moment are hard to find, do you really think sony's numbers especially in north america are going to magically increase? how can sony sell what they don't have, right? when npd releases soon, and what i just said becomes real true, then you ps3 fanboys will go back to claiming how out of stock they are as an excuse. if the ps3 does out sell 360 for march 2010 it will be a small margin but i believe it'll be the other way around. sorry for calling you out for the hypocrite that you obviously are, but some one had too. oh and for the record, i have been thru just as many 360's as i did ps2's :) thing sony never repaired them especially for free. anyways like i said it's an estimate, and until you darkride, can come up with more concrete numbers OFFICIALLY, then this is all we have to go by. i see halo got a lot of BS disagrees he is right, as of right now sells wise, 1-wii 2-360 3- ps3. air 1- exactly one of the things i mentioned have a bubble. to bathyj- im sick of hearing that excuse. well i guess ps2 was so successful last gen because it had a yr head start as well right? give me a break dude. 360 had rrod issues, and sony had a bad launch period, move on dude. if the 360 would have been as solid as xbox, the lead would be a lot greater, no one knows how many potential customers micro lost with the whole rrod fiasco. when you invent a time machine bathyj that lets people go back in time, please hit me up, i got a lot things the past 30 yrs id like to do differently, in other words, GET OVER IT, whats done is done "I wonder what happenes when Sony does real in that lead. I dont really care as it will happen eventually even if its after M$ dumps 360 for the next console again. But will you and your one console owning brethern leap from cliffs en masse, or maybe just fade into obscurity like most of them have around here? Either way, I'm looking forward to the silence. <----yep, and look at how much n4g has went down the tubes since you and ya band of brothers, aka sony defense force started over taking this site. i bet if mentioned in a survey n4g would rank in the top 3 as one of the worse fanboy sites now. this site went from "new for gamers" to "ps3 fanboy blogs for ps3 fanboys" i come on here for the laughs from you and the other ps3 fanboys, becuase almost every comment you all make on here is BS or you said the exact opposite of what you say now earlier. i have no respect for the ps3 fanboys on n4g because of this. atleast the ones on joystiq and all the other sites don't behave as badly as the breed of sony fanboys on n4g do- one reason why is they get banned! edit- really kaviet- he acts like 13 on here. i don't care if hes 45 he is a hypocrite first, no age limit on being one of those dude.
"... nothing is kiddo..." He's like 35, dude.
Its not an excuse Fangirl, its a fact. I get sick of hearing things too. Like I'm sick of hearing that Sony is a loser somehow because they've sold about 5 million less consoles overall in a shorter time. Hey M$ rushed out a console knowing it wasnt tested and didnt give a crap about their future customers, or their current ones incidently. It paid off for them with a lead, but they've done nothing with it, they've been outsold nearly every year since then. "Bla bla bla, XB is in front by this much, Sony are losers. Wah." I dont give a crap if they're always behind if it means geting the best games and hardware. The lead might have been a big deal when XB was 10M and PS3 was 2M but as it stands right now it mean very little. You think anyone will care about the different if XB is 50M and PS3 is 45M? At those high numbers the lead means less and less. Its like a 30 year old going out with an 18 year old might be a big deal, but but the time ones 90, the other will be 78 and who cares? Y'know I can remember when XB had been out for one year and sold about 10M. All you heard was bragging, 10M sold, PS3 isnt even out, 10M lead. I would ask ok, if XB sold that in a year, with no competition at all would the fanboys acknowledge that PS3 selling 10M in its first year with 2 other consoles to compete against, higher price, less games, and all the fanboy FUD, not to mention media FUD, would they then admit that it was an equally good, or even greater feat? I have to say, not many admitted it, they just kept bragging about this awesome lead, which has done nothing but shrink, and they havent stopped to this day even when it means so little. Its like bragging you're in front in a race around the world when you actually started a week early. Thats what I'm sick of hearing about. And maybe you should read a little of my comment history before lumping me in with the rabid fanboys. Yeah I like PS3 the most, but I'm a gamer. I've pretty much been talking about Splinter Cell for the last week, I had to buy a new XB just to play it(yeah RRoD), so if an issue is or has directly effected me, I see no reason why I cant comment on it. And if you get that time machine working, go back 2 years and see if this place was any better. It wasnt, its just that the tide has turned and the worst fanboys on the net like Mart and POG, who wouldnt even praise they console, just rubbish PS3, have all retired back to Xboxkings.
Some other guy tried to compare to the PS2 but it wasn't related to what I was saying. Perhaps you should read the posts you're referring to before you start calling people names, 'k champ? Then you start talking about my "kind"? What, gamers with opinions? My 360 gamertag's DarkrideHex66. Say hi sometime. Actually, how about you just don't. I have always maintained that sales numbers should only be taken from their official sources and those are easy enough to look up. Just go to each company's investor relations sites. They're all in there. Sony's official number at the end of Dec was 33.5 million. That's not a secret. You certainly seem to have a chip on your shoulder against PS3 fans for some reason. How about you calm down a bit and join the rest of the gamers who just want to talk about the hobby they love. Name-calling and whining about other gamers doesn't win you any friends, it just makes you look like a tool. We're all here to discuss games. Had you given that a try instead of throwing around console wars nonsense maybe you wouldn't be down to your last bubble.
Wow. I guess I bruised some ego's. All that ranting isn't going to change the fact the ps3 is still in laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast place. Face it man, real gamers are choosing the 360 over the ps3. It's a done deal man. :)
Just because i dont like you doesnt mean you've hurt me. I'm ranting cos I'm at work and have time to do so, when I'm home you'll barely hear from me. And sorry dude, but most "real" gamers will have a PS3 and an Xbox. Buttpuppets like yourself which think Halo is the pinacle of gaming will usually only have an Xbox and because they dont have a PS3 will usually start attacking it, like you have been since you got to N4G.
mlg jaggy halo kiddy fan is in denial. 360 is last in japan and europe. 1 year headstart and cheaper price,i would hope it has some kind of lead.it has to stay cheaper just to compete with ps3. eventually ps3 will outsell it though. also ps3 is not getting smashed like ps2 did to xbox.
Haha, look suddenly theres a heap of disagrees even though these comments have been up for hours. Halopro went and shook to the dusk off all of his accounts for that one. Dont forget to top your own bubbles up too champ.
vgcharts are not credible today? its all good when vgcharts says that ps3 took the lead in a certain month though . you ppl are like flip flops back and forth back and forth..
VGChartz have never and will never be credible. Microsoft said they hit the 40 million mark months ago too btw, yet VGChartz apparently knows better lol.
360 is in a very slooooppy second.
the numbers we get from vgchartz, or npd estimated any way. i heard that walmart numbers arent even reported but apart of the estimated numbers. and the ceo's of these companies could be using shipped numbers. whyP cause it sounds better, i would
but yes...in general it is an estimate but does include real POS numbers for a good chunk of the market....but it is one that firms and companies pay huge money for so i tend to believe there is some merit to NPD's methodology. The day a large research firm PAYS for VGChartz baloney is the day they become credible. Not sure of MS or NIN but SONY switched from Shipped from factory (could sit in a warehouse) to Shipped to Retail about one year into the PS3 lifespan...if you go back to their annual reports you can see when they made the change.
