Holy shit the PS4 is undertracted. If those numbers are right then Sony f'ed up their unit allocations or the brand is extremely weak in the USA.

Those numbers have been updated. Look above.
62k added to PS4 ( including 35k in europe )



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

Ok, but the gap in the USA is my concern.



Wait for the next adjustments in the Usa.

PS4 was released here in South Africa on the 13th as well.Sold out on the first day and we have even received our second allocation before christmas which has sold out as well. Dont know how they can ommit complete regions from the chart. Thought we were just listed as "other" in the past.

I was expecting a gape like that. Ia surprise it's not actually more since the PS4 was barely a available in the US. But with the big shipments made after 14th, I expect the PS4 to be on top next week in the US.

PS4s hardware numbers looks like a joke compared to 3DSs far bigger ones.

 

Platform N. America Europe Japan Global
337,683 319,950 182,193 899,915
154,421 139,410 N/A 312,917

Uhhhh, no. Most of these sales are for the $129 2DS. This is a toy and it is no surprise that it is selling well at Xmas. This is a dumb comparison to a $399 piece if hardware.


regardless, the ps4 is getting smoked.

Welcome fellow south african?

Anyways some guy on here actually argued with me that total launch sales of SA would be 2k LOL

Just going around to some of the BT games stores and asking about launch numbers and you can already tell that 2k is waaaay below what actually sold in SA.

Its tough though for Vgc to track regions like Africa, Middle East and other minor regions. They are open about this short comming and thats why the charts focus on the bigger regions. But to be clear the "Other" regions is still included in the total sales figures. Its just not specifically stated and you need to substract the known regions from the total to get the balance...which will be the "Other" regions. Not sure why they dont just do it for us. Sorry if you already knew that.

My question is this: Why was PS4 adjusted up slightly in Europe and "others" shortly after you had posted the numbers?


http://www.vgchartz.com/article/82746/editorial-why-it-is-so-easy-to-blame-vgchartz/

What VGChartz offers is timely data that isn't meant to be 100% accurate but be in the right range. We don't compete with the likes of NPD, GFK or ChartTrack; we offer a service that is totally different. One that is not based on comprehensive and direct retail tracking, but rather uses modern and alternative methods to quickly arrive at estimates, combined with a database of historical sales - constantly adjusted and tweaked to be as accurate as possible.

Exactly. And why was it more accurate when adjusted? What is the reason?

Adjusted up again (twice for numbers that are a day old). Why?

This is more directed at ioi than anyone else, but it can also be seen as rhetorical.
