Wii & DS still kickin ass!

eagle212836d ago

exactly... imagine if Nintendo shaved off even 30% price cut on their best selling :)

MAJ0R2836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

these are fake numbers

Godmars2902836d ago

Imagine if they made games worth buying those systems for.

RSPproductionz2836d ago

i love how the 360 fanboys that put these charts up when 360 was winning were not too pushed about posting this. also the japan numbers are wrong, 360 is under 3k and ps3 over 60k. official numbers but vgfail changed them

RSPproductionz2836d ago

its mad that ps2 still sells. we might as well add the ps2 numbers to the ps3 versus 360 numbers

darthv722836d ago

But impressive sales for the first week of a new year. would think huh. IMO sony is hurting sales of the ps3 by keeping the ps2 going. Drop production of the unit but game development could still happen.

Imagine if they announced a PS4 next year. They would be trying to support 3 consoles at once. Only one other company ever did that and look what happened (hint: SEGA).

mikeslemonade2836d ago

No matter how wrong the numbers are, the idea is the PS3 is generally outselling the 360 worldwide. PS3 being 2nd place soon is inevitable.

Too bad nothing coming out is really a system seller. LBP2 and Killzone 3 will sell a few extra 10,000s of units but nothing more.

Its funny how the numbers are fake when Nintendo are on top.

@godsmars...i bought the games and had a blast more than any others... :)

GodofSackboy2836d ago

They would possibly be supporting 5 at once =D

"Playstation pocket"? (ps phone)

Also PC with MMOs and stuff so that's awesome

darthv722836d ago

i was looking at just the home console front of PS2, PS3 and PS4.

Sega had the master system they were still supporting in Europe and the US with the new design. The genesis/sega cd/32x all considered one because they all related to each other. Then they had the saturn.

You could throw in the game gear for good measure if you wanted to but that deviates from the home console list. That is alot of hardware to provide support to at the same time.

At last America is not the world,

darthv722836d ago (Edited 2836d ago )

it takes the rest of the world combined to equal/surpass america. That must account for something.

@below: 50% for a single territory vs the rest of the world....yeah that is huge. You may not see it that way but that is why America is the single biggest territory in game sales. That is the market you WANT your product to do well in for its sheer percentage of market share.

like the song goes: if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere (except jp for the 360 lol).

"it takes the rest of the world combined to equal/surpass america. That must account for something."

If that's the case then it accounts for 50%.

Cyrus3652836d ago

PS3 beats 360 worldwide as usual...

FrankMcSpank2836d ago

LoL...If Americans aren't buying the 360 like crazy, the 360 will come in behind PS3 worldwide. The 360 can out sell the PS3 by 100k in the states and still come in behind..

LoydX-mas2836d ago

"VGchartz are fake numbers".

.....taken from every PS3 fanboy post about sales numbers.

Kran2836d ago

Does VGChartz ever stop swarming N4G?

k-dillinger2836d ago

as much as i love ps3 i still don't buy these fake numbers regardless if they finally got ps3 kick n 360 ass..
