but really... weekly sales by VG charts should not be news but whateva

FlameHawk2921d ago

Not really because there is no way to actually get the right number of sales worldwide without the help of the Publishers. And even then its hard.

NukaCola2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

Who cares we have been through too many times. They are a rough estimate and are not accurate. Please stop taking them to heart and stop taking them seriously.

Anyway, good job to Dark Souls! Doing so much better than Demon's Souls. Glad to see a hidden gem really getting some fame and getting out there with it's sequel!

And PS2 why are you forever eternal? Amazing tos ee this thing continues to sell so much after all these years.

@ NukaCola

It looks like XBox 360 owners want no part of Dark Souls. LOL

Denethor_II2920d ago

@ShaunCameron What did you expect?

MasterCornholio2920d ago


I will tell you why. Because of Kinect the 360 user base are filled with wimpy casuals who can't handle dark souls.

lol I am just kidding. The reason why the ps3 version Sells more than the 360 one is because the first game was exclusive to the PS3.

so VGcharts gets sales figures from publishers... interesting...

FlameHawk2921d ago

I actually never said that they got them from Publishers.


People should stop b1tching about VGC charts..They are just estimating numbers. Its just like record sales most music sites estimate numbers,Its imposible to get the 100% accurate numbers as this games sale thousands every hour wordlwide.

Ulf2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

They have to adjust their PS3 numbers up by about 10% every quarter, and adjust Nintendo numbers down by about the same amount every quarter. It's very likely that *actual* PS3 sales WW, this week, were about 195K, and *actual* 3DS sales WW, this week, were about 205K.

It makes sense that they usually have good numbers for MS, since their data sources are mostly in the US, iirc.

I think the lack of faith, in their reporting, comes from the fact that they don't seem to want to adapt to their own system's blatantly obvious flaws. Instead, they play some sort of wierd Nintendo fanboy game -- their forums are basically a Nintendo fanboy cheerleading squad, and they seem to want to please them above actually reporting more accurate estimates.

vg chartz is no better or worse than any other source that estimates sales

Anon19742920d ago (Edited 2920d ago )

Well, I agree that vgchartz weekly figures really don't need to be posted...
"happy i dumped my 360 stock"

What the PS3 and 360 contribute to the stock price of each company is insignificant, just as fluctuations in console hardware sales mean zero to the stock price. It's just too small compared to the whole company. MS could announce they're pulling out of making 360's tomorrow and the stock would most likely go up as investors would most likely view that as a freeing up cash for more profitable ventures. About a year ago the principal analyst of the Enderle Group referred to the entire Entertainment division at Microsoft as a “vampire” whose “profit, which wasn’t much, was massively offset by the economic cost it caused to the corporation.”

The only company that is effected by these types of figures is Nintendo because it's pretty much why the company exists.

Gamer19822920d ago

no doubt 360 sales in US keep it pegging with ps3. FIFA selling better by far on ps3 though and since it's bigger in Europe than America it shows which console is in most homes nowadays in Europe at least.

Keep it up Nintendo..I can't wait to see how high sales go for the 3ds once the holidays hit.

lazertroy2921d ago

+ Bub for PS2 right to be in the picture.

clearelite2921d ago (Edited 2921d ago )

oOoO, look at Dark Souls (PS3). With all this success, they better not get all "main streamy" on me. I suppose instead, they will set an example for others and hard core games will become even more popular.

Also, newcomers looking for more will undoubtedly go pick up Demon's Souls at one point or another. For sticking with us hardcore gamers, they deserve every penny they earned and much more to come.

Excellent numbers for the consoles and handhelds. Those that say dedicated gaming devices are losing momentum are living in a fantasy world.

Gaming FTW!
