Forums - Sales Discussion - The new Xbox One numbers for the 25'th are wrong.

So basically what your saying is that they are trying to hide the fact that PS4 has far more than doubled Xbox sales so they are boosting them yet again.

It's so obvious they are manipulating the numbers in favor of Xbox. Mmany months last year and really since launch PS4 has well over doubled Xbox sales, many months more than tripped sales yet on this site you see Xbox clinging on to 50% sales which is mathematically impossible using the numbers simply provided on this site. It seems like every time they do adjustments it's always in favor of Xbox.  I remember several other sales tracking firms had reported PS4 doubled xbox's sales around 18 months before vgchartz reported that happening.

 

So whats the deal, are these guys taking a check from Microsoft to over track sales or something?  I have often wondered if Microsoft stopped giving numbers to give credibility to sales tracking sites like this to over track.

Yes xbox numbers are wrong, phil Spencer has recently said the Xbox one numbers are above the Xbox 360 at this point in its life. Which means it's above 34 million, I say closer to 38 million or so. Vgchartz always short changes xbox numbers , been that way as far as I can remember

And do you have a source for the first part?

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Personally I think this aswell. Considering how much  ps4 beats it in America I think WW it's beating it by more than then vgchartz is showing. 

Definitely. XBox is constantly overestimated on here. Was the same last gen already. 32 seems more realistic.

Today PS4 has certainly 80-90% of the console market in Europe, so it is clear that Vgchartz overestimates the sales of xbox one in Europe and the numbers of last week (only 2: 1) are really ridiculous.

"continental Europe" as in, excluding the UK, which is one of, if not the, largest markets in Europe.

And FYI VGC has PS4 outselling Xbox One 4.2:1 or 80.8% market share for PS4 (excluding Switch) if you'd prefer that metric in Europe excluding the UK, so there's little basis to suggest it's being overtracked here.



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

So Xbox is overestimated in "UK" and "Others" at this point.

Why would you think it's overtracked in the UK? It's pretty popular here, Xbox always has been. Not PS4 level, no, but it's still doing well here.

Even a small weekly overestimation of only 10K (UK + Others) for 4 years and now xbox one is overestimated by 2M



You guys basically just added a full month onto Xbox sales for no reason. If your own tracking said a lower number and other sales tracking firms have the numbers lower why did you add a full million to the numbers?

Your actions call into question the whole methodology your using when you don't even trust the totals your "research" provided you.  If your just going to randomly add huge sums like 1,000,000 your essentially just making up the numbers.

Sorry If I hurt your feelings.



Who's in charge of hardware sales chart in VGC ?
