Don't fool yourself. It's not an increase due to Move.

If a console has been undertracked and you want to adjust the sales you put the increase to the last few weeks in not to screw up the past too much (because else it would ruin the logic behind several sales analysis threads and articles you've produced).

ioi has confirmed in the past he NEVER EVER does that because its very misleading

Actually PS3 got adjustments around a month ago that took place in Canada 1 year back....ioi didn't just raise the recent NA sales, he actually adjusted the sales from NA a year back

Well here they made a lot of advertissement about 3D TV, combined with a PS3.

Depending on the size of the Bravia you are buying, you can get a PS3 for free.



 

Evan Wells (Uncharted 2): I think the differences that you see between any two games has much more to do with the developer than whether it’s on the Xbox or PS3.

Because the PS3 was cut to $199 so sales exploded.



Tease.

well, I m really confused by this thread

who is right at the end ?

I doubt the move is able to "increase" PS3 sales that much ? so what is the reason if it is not the move ?



Time to Work !

How bout the most fundamental reason ? Because PS3 is just better at doing everything else ? ^^

It's because people are buying it ready for Christmas

I think he was just pointing out that the weekly increases coincidentally coincide with the release of Move.

And the counter was that these weekly increases only reflect the recent corrections to VGC numbers, which also happened to coincide with the release of Move. Only these weekly increases do not add up to the million plus correction, and as it's been pointed out, adjustments were made retroactively to last year's numbers.

It seems like the spike in numbers are partly due to increased advertising building up to the holiday season, new sales data covering the addtion of previously omitted markets, as well as a slight bump from Move.

You doubt that amazon boost is because of GT5, you doubt that PS3 sales are because of Move, what are going to doubt next in order to doubt the PS3 boost?

As the guys mentioned: Adjustments.

 

Please do not think this is trolling or anything like it, but I think VGC does not know exactly where Sony sold (shipped) those PS3s to explain the gap. We do get pretty good data for NA, Japan and sometimes for UK, so it seems like they just put it in EMEAA. I doubt VGC knows where exactly. But that should not discredit the great work VGC did with the tracking in the past years.

You wish.

The truth is , for those who still trying to question vgchartz numbers or Sony's shipping numbers, Nintendo's 3rd quater report showed that the PS3 was selling way better than we had it here, and that's just regular Europe. In Fact, after the Slim came out, the 360 only led for a couple weeks before the PS3 went right back ahead.

Ok, 360 was outsold by the PS3
but WHY the bump at the move release ?
