USA

DMC4 PS3 sales (week one): 146k
DMC4 360 sales (week one): 229k

DmC PS3: 164k
DmC 360: 120k

PS3 version up 18k from last game and 360 version down 109k. Overall down 91k


Dying franchise as we will see over the coming weeks. Looking at the demo, it deserves to. 

I'm surprised the PS3 version is up on last game. Might be overtracked, since we know it only did half of DMC4 in Japan and 1/3rd in UK (don't know how much of that is the PS3 version, but still)

PS3 triples WiiU. My prediction continues doing very well

Almost triple is not triple.

It is when you round to the nearest whole number

360 selling more than Wii+Wii U combined, this is awesome. :D Wii U selling less than 40k, gotta love those numbers.



How is this good? People like you disgust me.

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

How long until we have 6 platforms selling sub-50k?

Awful numbers for the majority.

I expect around Mid-March, towards Late April/May. This is before GTA V and Pikmin 3 come out so both will likely slump under it at some point (assuming figures are accurate).



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

No, I don't "gotta love those numbers" becuase I am a Nintendo fan. What a stupid thing to say..

You are a pretty sad human being if you are seriously that happy about your preferred piece of plastic beating on your hated piece of plastic. I don't care if this gets me banned either because its worth it. 

On topic.. Just pretty dismal all around. I think there is little doubt at this point that the industry at large is in trouble if they don't change their ways. Wii U is not selling but it does not surprise me. You can't sell hardware without the software and right now outside of NSMB Wii U has nothing if note. Now once it finally GETS the software of note; the Monster hunters, the Dragon Quests, the Wii Fits, Mario Kart, etc. and it STILL doesn't sell, that is when Nintendo needs to start worrying. But for now, it's obvious why its not selling to anyone that looks at its current lineup.

Well May is the best chance. 360 down 40% would just about make that happen. Ps3 is on track to sell about 2m less in its 8th year than the 360 did. Sales are collapsing. Who would have thought it?  Me.



I'm not really here!

I totally agree with, but just let him be. He's a sorry excuse of a gamer, and nothing we say or do will change that. don't bother with this one.

The nearest "whole number"?

I can tell you are no good at maths.

Nobody buys half a console.

Well then it is too bad for you.

Let's pretend for a second that you did not resort to personal insults. There are plenty of reasons for a person to be happy about "piece of plastic" beating another "piece of plastic". Have you considered that some people might actually have money invested in some company or maybe their income is directly or undirectly involved with some company? Those would be damn good reasons!

Then  again, some could like games on another piece of plastic much more than the other and if the less liked fails, it opens up the market for the games which some person prefers. That could mean more good games for said person!



pathetic numbers all around. with the exception of 3DS. Will WiiU drop bellow Vita numbers?
