According to Vgchartz this week 3DS was #1 so looks like their wrong again.

Seems to depend who you ask for Vita. Media create had the 3DS just ahead of it. Still a massive turnaround from last year though. It's just a shame 3DS levels have sunk to the Vita recently rather than Vita rising to the 3DS.

On my phone so not eread the MCV link. Where did their figures come from?



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

OK. Lots of things wrong with this thread.

1. You are comparing different weeks when you say VGC is wrong "this week".  VGC hasn't even published its numbers yet. I can assure you they will be strikingly similar to these.


2. These numbers are posted every Wednesday when they actually release... so this is a dup thread.

3. It is "they're" not "their". So "looks like they're wrong again" not "looks like their wrong again"

apart from that... good work.



I'm not really here!


The tide rises (a bit)... unfortunely, its unlikely to sweep the US and EU. We are still waiting for results on jrpgvita and where is PSO2?



How is VGChartz wrong if Japan numbers haven't been posted for that week?

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Oh ok, well yeah seems like they overtracked 3ds in that thread. Maybe it will be updated before its officially posted.

There are two trackers in japan.  VGC pitches its Japanese numbers inbetween the two.

Both had PSV at roughtly 37k

One had the 3DS at 40k and one had it at 34k, hence the VGC number.

Whose right?  Who knows?  But by averaging the numbers its likely VGC is the most accurate actually.
