Remember the days where Lems said that half the ppl who bought the PS3 only bought it because of the Blu-ray? And how all multiplat games sold more on the 360?

Now we keep seeing recent games selling more on the PS3. Which only strengthens the rumor that the PS3 has outsold the 360 worldwide.

I cant imagine the level of destruction the PS4 will lay upon the Xbone.

PS3 GTAV - 11.34 Million

360 GTAV - 11.29 Million

360 GTAIV - 10.47 Million

PS3 GTAIV - 9.89 Million

How impressive are the GTAV sale numbers though? Outsold GTAIV in less then a month. And people thought COD Ghost would still win in sales...

As if actual gamers were going to stick around the XBox after they got ditched for Kinect in 2009? Lulz!

That's getting old. The numbers arnt exact. But they are always close. Show me proof of them being sooo wrong about the sale numbers....

I needn't show proof of anything. Understand what burden of proof is, and then understand that you're quoting a laughable source, on this forum.

The tables have definitely turned.

@Omega-316:

No they aren't. Don't EVER use VGChartz here and expect to get respect. They're always off and most of the time not even close.

#11 Posted by lostrib (33450 posts) -

lol vgchartz

#12 Posted by Rattlesnake_8 (18334 posts) -

Who cares.. and VGChartz is a terrible place to get reliable info. No one actually cares if ps3 sold 200 copies more than the 360 or vice versa. Go play the game and enjoy instead of making lame topics.

Vgcharts is best used to see what to expect in term of sales. The numbers are off buy never by much. You call it laughable source without showing proof on why its laughable. Your just following a trend that other users have started about the website.

It's been run over countless times, on this board alone. Furthermore, the Staff account even stated that if you use VGChartz, expect a "lolVGChartz" response.

That being said, burden of proof is still on you. You need viable sources, sunshine.

this site is getting more pathetic every second. ownage over a such a small margin?

#16 Edited by k2theswiss (16598 posts) -

@Omega-316: are we really bragging about 50kish estimated sales?

#17 Posted by stereointegrity (10700 posts) -

honestly who really cares about which system it sold on more...the thing we should all be looking at is it sold 20 million copies in two weeks

#18 Edited by Stevo_the_gamer (42585 posts) -

Vgchartz? Seriously?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't VGCHARTZ part of GameSpot now?

#20 Posted by Wasdie (49561 posts) -

I'm glad I did my part.

#21 Posted by hippiesanta (9767 posts) -

Eventually ....... GTAV will sell more as in re-purchase on 360 after DVD get scratched

#22 Edited by Montrealien (1685 posts) -

@Omega-316: just a simple question. In what way is this important?

#23 Posted by blackace (20080 posts) -

@Omega-316: Ouch.. VGCHARTZ.COM? LOL!! Their numbers are usually off by a few 100K every week when it comes to software. I wouldn't believe those numbers. I'll wait for NPD numbers instead.

#24 Posted by NameIess_One (559 posts) -

So, here we have VGChartz listing a 50K difference. Since this is only a rough estimate, things could really go either way, no real information here.

#25 Posted by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

@blackace: Of course you will as that'll favor 360. Your agenda is so see through. I'd rather use a source for worldwide numbers than a source for just 1 territory.

#26 Posted by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

MS even used VG chartz Lems. What say you now? http://www.gamespot.com/forums/system-wars-314159282/microsoft-uses-vgchartz-as-a-source-epic-fail-proo-29344551/

#27 Edited by HalcyonScarlet (3965 posts) -

lol @ fanboys, It's a 0.05 difference. No analyst in the world would consider that significant enough to put a theory behind it. They'd call that pretty even.

#28 Posted by Caseytappy (2128 posts) -

Lolchartz has been proven time and time again to be off as far as 100 % , there's a reason you get perma banned for using them on Neogaf .

Once official numbers are out they correct them and that's usually by a big margin .

Do a search on their freaked numbers yourself , everytime a noob uses them they want proof over and over again...please no more - get educated .

http://www.joystiq.com/2013/10/15/pokemon-x-y-sells-over-four-million-in-two-days/

1.5 million difference on a 4 million figure. That's almost 40% off. Only idiots use vgchartz. There's plenty of other examples where they're off by millions.

Lemmings getting upset when using VGcharz I see.....Why is that??? Hmm, what mystery...OH I know.

PS3 has more sales than 360.

LOL Deal with it lemz

So NPD started covering the world now.?

#35 Posted by RR360DD (11529 posts) -

Probably because of the (timed) exclusive DLC the 360 version had.

GTA was always seen as a big playstation franchise despite not being exclusive. Just compare sales of San Andreas between Xbox and PS2. All the cows who said MS securing the GTAIV DLC first as a waste of money have been owned, because MS was effectively stealing the game from playstation with a day one launch, and it managed to sell more.

This, nobody cares for NPD numbers. The only numbers that count are the worldwide numbers.

...And we all know who will win there.

Amazing how things have changed....7 years later. Better late than never.

#38 Posted by Netherscourge (16328 posts) -

Well, a few things:

1. Everything is on a single PS3 Blu-Ray disc.

2. GTA Online on the PS3 is 100% free. No Online Subscription service needed.

3. Rockstar finally figured out the PS3's CELL CPU and GTA5 performs better on it than on the Xbox 360. Less pop-in, more stable FPS.

Pretty much a no-brainer. The PS3 version is better all-around.

Pulling things out of your ass surely the worse way to give information.

You know Sony fans are desperate for good news when they need to use Vgcharts as their source.

#43 Posted by Heil68 (43273 posts) -

Well when you have a bigger install base, you sell more. Makes sense.

Yeah that ... and the fact its "winning" by 50K LMAO

The fat wad of cash Sony gave to rockstar for exclusive bundle rights probably helped

#46 Posted by Gatman32 (429 posts) -

Wow, are people seriously going nuts over that TINY bit more it has sold? Lol

Do you have up to date numbers that say they don't?

Indeed none of us has, VGchartz is the closest thing we have to compare sales.

I think the most recent official numbers still put 360 ahead of PS3

#50 Posted by Daious (1059 posts) -

There is zero difference between those two numbers.
