    May 2014 NPD Thread!

    in Sales Discussion on 16 June 2014

    I believe VGC is low on the WiiU, and spot on on the PS4 and XBO. My bold prediction is that the PSV is extremely undertracked, I am taking 100%+ undertracking, which means very little because numbers will still be low, but still terrible tracking percentage wise....

    Sony's Q2 FY2013 Earnings (PS3 2m / PSPVita 800k / ~$200m Loss)

    in Sony Discussion on 31 October 2013

    Am I seeing this right, Sony has shipped/sold (because of digital sales) 236 million software units in 2013 in 3 quarters and VGChartz has Sony selling 95 million physical game copies in the same time frame.........??? lol if true Sony still doesn´t know how to make money, some of the best devices out there IMO and still nothing, how can you sell 10Ms smartphones in 1 quarter and still lose...

    That is a Sony thing, for some stupid reason they almost ignore US, they do the same thing with Smartphones too, but of course Kaz comes in and say that they will invest in the market later and all the Kaz fangirls says that it makes sense (blindly), when fact is it makes no sense at all. Xperia and Playstation brands are weak brands in US (Xperia being a newer brand with playstation getting...

    in Latest Charts on 26 September 2013

    Those hardware numbers are absolutely pathetically wrong, and I don´t even need to wait for NPD to confirm it, IMO (don´t want to sound aggressive). I mean just use common sense, if the 360 was able to get that much of a boost in US compared to a a dedicated, nationwide advertised Exclusive bundle at 269, can you imagine what will happen this week when major retailers are discounting...

    Why do Xbox 360 games sell so much better than PS3 world-wide?

    in Sales Discussion on 09 September 2013

    Short answer: VGchartz Long answer, this site continues to insist in software tendencies that were happening in 2008 where the 360 versions of games would kill the PS3s (performance and in sales). Nowadays if you bother to keep up with them, you see that FW sales, for the most part, favor the 360, while the PS3 versions start outseling them after the first weeks of hype...... it happens in 80%...
