This shows, that PS3 outsold 360 worldwide, in 2007, in 2008, and currently in 2010.

Only year 360 outsold PS3 was in 2009.

Cyrus3653040d ago

And that's different than any other week on n4g? Where have you been, it's been sales sales sales, every week.

RememberThe3573040d ago

This week has been worse than most weeks with the articles all contradicting themselves yet all using the same numbers.

As of right now they're reporting PS3 numbers that match up to official data, from back in March. So which is it, VGChartz? Either you're dead wrong and don't care about updating your figures when official ship data is out or you expect us to believe the PS3 hasn't sold any consoles for the last 3 months.

And we know based on the official data from both Microsoft and Sony.
2007 the PS3 came out on top.
2008 the PS3 was crushing the 360 until the 360's price cut ended the year in a tie.
2009 the PS3 came out significantly ahead of the 360.

PS3 8.85 Million - 360 7.3 Million

PS3 10.8 Million - 360 10.8 Million

PS3 12.41 Million - 360 10.2 Million

2010 - up till the end of March
PS3 2.2 million - 360 1.5 million

Given that we know the PS3 was at 35.9 million at the end of March, how can we put any faith in any of VGchartz' figures? We can't.

The official updates up to the end of June will be up in the next couple of weeks from each company. If you're interested in the data, wait till the real figures come out and do yourself a favor. Ignore websites that can't even adjust their figures when the real data has been out for months.

Edit: And again, to all those who disagree, here are the websites with the official data. Verify them yourself if you don't believe me. Rather than jab the disagree button like a bunch of furious monkeys, take a minute and actually get informed. Then you too can contribute to the conversation rather then adding phantom disagrees.

didn't you know people on N4G like playing sale, I in the other hand like to play games :D

insomnium3040d ago

As always you get tons of disagrees and your bubblecount stays at 1. To me this is unbelievable. Some people really do want to live in denial. They think the truth will go away if they somehow manage to shut you up.

I believe I'm pretty much in the same boat as you are. I like Sony. I'm a Sony PS3 fan. There are tons of reasons for this. I hate all the BS people have talked in the past 3 years or so. I do like the PS3 most but I do not try to deny facts. All my opinions come from the information that is available to everyone. Try google people. It's all there.

Usually all the BS the x360 fans spew cannot be backed up with anything SOLID. There's always some temporary leverage the x360 is able to take advantage of. That has been the story so far in this gen.

I cannot wait to get GT5 out and to have had a sub 200 euro PS3 on the store shelves for say...two years. That will be the final nail in the coffin of BS that has plagued this gen.

Things have played out the way they have for OBVIOUS reasons. To me it's been obvious. I cannot even imagine to set myself up as the winner in short term only to be shot down big time in the longer run. That's what you x360 fanboys are doing.

By the time this will happen I'm sure you will say "the gen was already over" and put your fingers into your ears and go "lalalalala I cant hear you so it didn't happen". Just so you know I'll be laughing my ass of watching you squirm.

yes i know people like playing sales on N4G
Every week i expect to see a sale article
but come on just in this weekend alone there has been so many, and each of them trying to counter each other, trying to state that these sales are not the same as these sales or saying this console outsold this console with no charts of what sort. N4G has really gone downhill, i use to come to this site expecting something huge everyday not sales.

I agree...its just logic. If one lags behind another, yet consistently closes the gap each year, then it must be selling at a faster rate.

Cyrus3653040d ago

RememberThe357, I agree, it has been more than normal this week...but that just happens when people don't understand, or can interpret numbers.

demonddel3040d ago (Edited 3040d ago )

it all started when the crazies got butt hurt after they seen those numbers on the NPD chart so to make them feel better they started posting worldwide sales

Spenok3040d ago

Its about time someone used there eyes and mind to see the truth, instead of there fanboy bias to spout out what they have no idea about.

Poseidon3040d ago

bubbles dude, it gets pretty hard to see with all of the bs falling from the sky from other users.

I take my agree back 09 Sony won too.

rroded3040d ago (Edited 3040d ago )


No wonder sony n ms are trying so hard to tap that "casual" market

btw ta anyone getting emotional over this unless you own stocks really who cares good news is that all 3 consoles are selling nough to warrent another generation. N thats good for gamers right...


don't read to much into this article there using VGCHARTZ numbers which are just a bunch of made up stuff. Any more articles and thread using sales numbers from VGCHARTZ should be dismissed im telling you the ps3 didn't outsell 360 or vice versa because there is no proof.

jden283040d ago (Edited 3040d ago )

Videogame chartz,NPD, Famitsu, all these sales reporting places are not the offical numbers those can be found on Sony, Microsofts and Nintendo's websites. Basically there are around 72 mil Wii's sold , 40 mil X360's, and 35 mil ps3. Sony has done a good job of narrowing the gap from 10 million to start this generation to just 5 mil in 4 years. Wii continues to dominate even though its sales have slowed a little bit. Microsofts launch of it's "S" model may hold Sony off from making a dent in the gap this year, but then what...It's been rumored that the next-gen starts in 2012 with either Nintendo or Microsoft pulling the trigger first...So I'm gonna ask you all With Microsoft owning there own tect this time and not being limited by Nvidia, with Nintendo coming off Being number 1 will sony be able to hold off launching their ps4 or will they be forced to launch when the others do? And will Sony be able to overcome the 5 gap between then and Microsoft in 2-3yrs Or will Microsoft continue to counter Sony's moves with New models, and price drops until this Gen ends thus garaunteeing them 2nd place?

Nvidia ended the production of the gpu in the origial xbox forcing Microsoft to make and release the x360 when they did and end support for the original xbox due to the contract with Nvidia.

msbabie200343040d ago

here you go again doing ya sells analyist dig.

Colonel-Killzone3040d ago (Edited 3040d ago )

I'm tired of sales article. This is not gaming news. I don't hold a stock share for either company. Can we please get some news that is relevant to gaming. I feel like This is a stock share site or something. All I see is kids argue over sales.

Cevapi883040d ago

you mean relevant right

writersblock3040d ago

Sales figures are shit the company needs to worry about, not fanboys bickering on the net

room4143040d ago

If you aren't interested in sales articles then don't click on them. I don't understand how that's in any way difficult ...

Colonel-Killzone3040d ago

EVERY article is one about sales. I have not seen a good actual gaming news in ages.

msbabie200343040d ago

when u sony fanboys like yaself quit picking and choosing the "sells articles" that suit u then u have a point.... til then stfu

u r on here 24-7 bitching constantly, but when it says ps3 is the winner! you are neutral....

funny isn't it?

Colonel-Killzone3040d ago

I think every article on sales including sony is stupid period. The only person I see bitching is you about sony fanboys.

Obviously they are so important because I see people do more crying about sony fanboys then anything else on this site. Stop worrying about them because they don't care about you. Also Fanboy yeah keep dreaming dumbass I'm far from any fanboy.
