Silly gameAr3649d ago

Oh, look who's back! Didn't see you guys since Major Nelson's first (true) sales announcement. Welcome back VGC!

Killed4Less3649d ago

Which was then corrected by a higher up. Of course you take the lowest as truth silly look at you.

air1_got_raped3649d ago

yea, it was corrected...A Day Later mmh......

MinskyM3649d ago

Thankfully everyone now knows the actual worldwide installed base numbers:

41.5 million sold
43 million shipped

42 million sold
44.5 million shipped

Cold 20003649d ago

Wii: 1st

360: 2nd

PS3: last position.

AAACE53649d ago

About to get hot in here!

darthv723649d ago

why are those numbers so low? Are there any preorder charts from other countries? I would favor a guess that GT5 may be higher preorder in europe/jp.

MinskyM3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )


Because they are fake numbers made up by some little kid Xbox fan.

What do you expect?

Honestly are there people still think some kid running a crappy little website is doing global retail tracking? Something that huge firms like NPD have huge teams of employees doing and game companies pay a good deal of money for every month.

What is mind boggling about the fake sales numbers the kid who runs vgchartz puts out is he does such a horrible job of lying and faking. If you are an Xbox fan who is making up fakes sales numbers like the kid running vgchartz you would think you would put some effort into trying to make your fake sales numbers at least look not obviously made up.

T9X693649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

Or maybe not everyone has pre-ordered it yet because no one knows when it's coming out. Look at Halo Reach, it had like a million pre-orders, but the last few days before it shipped it shot up to 2 million. Once GT5 actually gets an official date and is coming out and there's a few days before it releases the pre-orders will go up. Plus these are for America, and GT is the most popular over in Europe.

Hell even look at Black Ops on PS3. Fable 3 had more pre-orders than Black Ops, and now Black Ops on PS3 has more pre-orders than what Fable 3 actually sold in one day. So calm your little vagina, GT5 will sell and you can be happy when it sells X million amount since you seem to care so much.

"Didn't see you guys since Major Nelson's first (true) sales announcement."

Give the fanboys running vgchartz, making up fake sales numbers is hard work.

jwatt3649d ago

Preorders for gt5 are higher in other countries though, especially before the delay gt5 was in the top 10 for UK.

darthv723649d ago

I figured that game would be a huge hit in europe.

From what I have read, a GT5 launch in europe will turn out numbers like a halo launch in the US.

demonddel3649d ago

darthv72 dont believe that

ryuzu3649d ago

So, even by this lame site's judegment, Kinect only manages 6th place. Not much of a revolution there eh?

Which raises another question, presumably, VGC has something against Kinect or he'd just fabricate a higher number....


Imperator3649d ago

I may be wrong, but isn't NA GT's weakest territory? The game mostly sells huge in Europe and Japan where not everybody is a shooter obsessed moron.

Christopher3649d ago

Does ssj work for or something? He comes each week to post the varioius pre-order and sales charts broken down by many manners in order to get people to link to their site.

SWORDF1SH3649d ago

Is it just me or when vgchartz reports PS3 game sales they never include bundles like sports champions and with wii and 360 they do report them.

Not saying they do this but it seems like it from various articles i have read from vgchartz

shadyiswin3649d ago

Um because sport champions isn't selling.......duh

units3649d ago

call of duty is going to be massive

deadreckoning6663649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

@units- 2 disagrees...seems like u hit a nerve lol. Anywho, its nice to see AC: Brotherhood there. It looks like a great game.

"Kinect Adventures rocking in the top 10 and beating LBP2. Hrm."

Bu bu bu how is that possible? The PS3 guys on this site said that Kinect would flop and that Kinect games are shovelware lol. How does Kinect Adventures get more pre orders than an already established franchise like LBP? Don't people know that LBP2 will, I'm sorry, WAS SUPPOSED to be GOTY 2010. /s

Yet another example of reality striking N4G. Friday will be another.

EDIT: Not trolling, just being truthful. I'm not even planning on getting Kinect, I just realized why people choose to partake in this console war thing..because its fun ;)

I've come to find that owning people on this site brings me great satisfaction. I love entertainment and on Friday, this site will be very VERY entertaining.

westy5523649d ago

And yet you will only be able to have one comment per article, awwww isnt that cute.

But but but patcher said the xbox and kinect. bu bu bu, patcher patcher patcher.....

cb4g3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

...yet you champion Kinect Adventures, which could be fun, but essentially just a collection of mini-games.

I'm sorry but the only person you are owning is yourself. Don't play sales, play the games.

Killed4Less3649d ago

Kinect Adventures rocking in the top 10 and beating LBP2. Hrm.

Some serious Xbox ownage on that list.

Fishy Fingers3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )


Yep, some serious ownage there.

Killed4Less3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

I'm talking about the actual numbers fish not the # of titles in the chart. Basically 2:1 for Ops and AC.

Don't get your ps3 fanboy panties in a bunch..

Even with the install base being half those are some weak GT5 numbers as well as LBP2. Granted these are pre-order and from VGC.. Which means these numbers probably hold as much water as a paper bag. Are those Dockers?

Fishy Fingers3649d ago (Edited 3649d ago )

Double the BO numbers, double the install base.

I wear logic pants bro.

Edit: ha keep twisting it dude. A for effort.

karl3649d ago

isnt this America pre orders?

there are like twice as much xbox than ps3s

so why is this a surprise for u?

ryuzu3649d ago

Well if you think GT5 has bad preorders, then Kinect's pre-orders must seem terrible.

Less orders than GT5 on a system with double the installed base - and that from a site which is not only inaccurate, but is run by an MS sycophant.

Perhaps you should get on the phone to Greenburg and tell him to up the sales numbers again lol.
