Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4 just surpassed XB360 on VGChartz

With the latest weekly update PS4 jumped to 86.1M and has now surpassed the XBOX 360.

PlayStation consoles are back on being all above any XBOX console, and PS4 is very close to put the PS3 back at the spot of worse selling PlayStation console.

Wii and PS1 are going to be down pretty soon as well, making it the second best selling console of all time.

PS2 will have its massive lead reduced as the undisputed king, even as I can't see its throne being actually endangered.

Just outstanding.

Best place to play is Playstation! Full stop!



Lol, if over 80 million is your worst selling console you are waaaay ahead of the game.

That’s why it amazes me when people put down the PS3’s numbers. It is still the 5th best selling console of all time, even though it’s the worst selling PS home consoles

Well deserved!

I wonder how many more individual sales that is considering failure rates, I remember seeing estimates of a 51% failure rate for 360, if it was even half that and victims rebought multiple times it could be in he tens of millions.

I’ve read about people who went through 6 or 7 consoles, so highly plausible. 

What that would also mean though is, for what reason ever, X1 in reality would be ahead of 360, launch aligned.

The other wild card this generation is how many people double dipped due to the kid generation upgrades.  On one hand, units sold are units sold.  On the other hand, if we're trying to measure the relative popularity of a system, double dipping muddies the waters.
