42million 360
41.6 million PS3

idk, either VGchart is way off
or Major Nelson didn't include every country (which idk why)

So the lead is half a million???????????

GT5 will do the job then, regardless if it's been delayed till later this year or if pre-order in USA is small EU and Japan is where it will matter most.

after that we can finally go back to the arguments in the beginning of this gen and those were about games and not sales.


This is earlier then i thought for the gap to close this fast, i was expecting mid 2011 to see such a thing.

Parapraxis3127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

Nitrowolf2 ...I have a feeling when regarding sales to date, MS would be one of the last companies to leave countries out. Especially when you consider the fact that Sony mere hours before posted their numbers and they are that close.
If some were omitted they would have been corrected by now (how suspect would that be)

The sales gap is basically null.

And any rational person who considers how many 360's are re-buys will quickly come to the conclusion that Sony now has a bigger install base.

SiLeNt KNighT3127d ago

so we can estimate the ps3's install base is about 8 million more than the 360's due to rrod?

and that's generous guesstamating at only about a 20% failure rate for the 360.

squallheart3127d ago

I think you might be on to something. I think to further justify your thesis look at how multi plats sell. You will notice even with the 360s large" install base they dont outsell the ps3 version meaning the install base might be smaller.

Everyone can disregaurd this it comes from VGC.

r1sh123127d ago

people need to stop posting vgchartz articles or some should have a mod ban them.
The numbers are always wrong.
I mean seriously sort it out

bmw693127d ago

Impressive for PS3 - hardly down at all year on year...

alphakennybody3127d ago

i'm confused it says 44 million yet earlier major neslon reports 42 millions.

shutupandplay3127d ago

That`s because MS and Sony both reported shipped numbers, which is why the gap is actually around 4 million in reality.

Nathaniel_Drake3127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

No sorry you're wrong, look at Booch's comment. Stop spreading lies.


MS reported they shipped 44 million
Major Nelson blogged today 42 million worldwide sold

Sony reported 41.6 million sold worldwide
According to Booch's comment Sony only reports sold so I don't know how much Sony shipped to retailers

So what you have is about a 400,000 unit lead for the 360 which started at around 9 million when the PS3 hit in November 2006

Shutupandplay missed the memo because he is in denial

Nitrowolf23127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

Are you trying to explain Alpha comment?
Cause that still doesn't make sense how could they have sold more units if they havn't even shipped that many yet?
and that was for today

but that really depends, which idk why he would include total sales, but it could be possible that he isn't counting some countries which like i said wouldn't make sense

I am so Fn confused, so 2 million gap or what???

morganfell3127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

No shutup, Sony reports sold numbers. And Major Nelson just gave us the sold numbers today for MS. The gap narrows. Drop the numbers of dead 360s MS won't disclose and it's a lot closer than anyone will admit.

And we already saw what happened with the software numbers.

Nitro, MS has been reporting shipped as sold. Major Nelson gave the sold number today. Sony reports sold units. Do the math. Less than 2 million. A gap that will close in 6 months. Who knows, Sony is in the black they may cut the PS3 price in February.

Nitrowolf23127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

Morgan isn't the lead half a million?

and either way sold/ship the lead is still smaller then what VGChart has it at


my comment was directed to shutupandplay, sorry bout that


never really cared about VGChart, but i always thought they were closer to the sales of 360, but obviously this is wrong and now once again the site is caught this time being under a million for PS3 and over 2 million for 360.

Hopefully this means sales article can finally die out and it can get back to gaming on this site

Nathaniel_Drake3127d ago


Don't let Vg charts confuse you they usually are way off. If you care about sales listen to the companies not VG charts

silvacrest3127d ago

It was 3 mil for a while and given all the sales info going about you still managed to end up with 4??

Wishful thinking or denial I wonder which...

Read the article first it helps.

shutupandplay3127d ago

Wow, a 4 million unit lead for the 360 with Kinect incoming for the holidays. We should see that gap widen to about 5-6 million with the year`s end.

Strikepackage Bravo3127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

44million is probably not current, Im sure that does not include the last 2 months sales.

GTmonster3127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

the only thing you guys had sales that is gone. Now what? kinect LOL

bu but oprah, bu but ellen. 360 is leading i know it waaa.

come on guys, leave sales and be gamers.

Nathaniel_Drake3127d ago

You serious?!?!? You even disregard what MS says about its sold units. Wow you both are really desperate. It's like when the enemy kills each other when there is no hope.

nix3127d ago

wow... shut n bravo are classics... dont worry aunt Oprah n Ellen are gonna help you guys out!

bviperz3127d ago

Sorry guys, you're both wrong, Major Nelson just reported 42 mil sold. Just thought I would point that out, cheers.

gigaware3127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

shutupandplay said the same thing you're saying in his first post. Microsoft and Sony first reported shipped numbers and Major Nelson later announced the sold console numbers.

Just wanted to point that out it seems you missed his first post. Hell I'm not even sure I trust the shipped Sony numbers.

God be with you

Imperator3127d ago

Honestly, 360 fanboys are the MOST delusional people I've even seen. Look at how Shutupandplay completely disregards the replies to his previous comment and once again states lies. How utterly pathetic,.

uxo223127d ago


You are not exactly given up any ground yourself. You insist that you are right so why can't they.

Do be ignorant.

Moentjers3127d ago

nah, rather 12-18 million.

wow, this is easy, just pull those number from your a$$.
It's really fun you should give it a try

Strikepackage Bravo3127d ago

talk of Major Nelson, when did he give sales numbers?

To be honest I really dont trust Sonys numbers, they are known for lying about such figures. On top of that, no one can check the numbers, we all are just supposed to take Sonys word for it, at least NPD checks M$ numbers. EU has no idea how many Sony has sold, and Sony just had NPD silenced on their numbers in the US so I certainly dont trust their numbers on their word alone.

Nitrowolf23127d ago (Edited 3127d ago )

Point being whether its shipped, sold or whatever wherever, the reported number from VG NPD is coming from in incorrect. You can't say MS sold 42 and are having 2 million shipped right now and have VG reporting on that as actually sold units, because they don't count shipped numbers.

Sony showed their numbers
Microsoft Showed their numbers

both of them being incorrect and 1-2 million off(PS3/above(360) of console from VG charts


"I think its getting more and more difficult to say that 360 does not have this gen pretty much in the bag. Congrats MS, didnt think you could do it in such a short time."
^^Thats You

I am not surprised that you don't trust their numbers just look at your comment history

I mean has Sony ever been caught with saying they are 1 million ahead of the competion after they revealed their own numbers an couple of days before the other company and then come out with that statement. Nope that was MS
