'breaking news: PS3 sales fall during a week of no releases, compared to the week prior when a very popular franchise had a title release'

The lunar new year is like christmas, new year and birthdays combined in Japan (and most other asian countries).

It makes sense that sales would drop across the board for all consoles after that week, the same way that sales drop significantly after Christmas in the US.

What do people expect? For the hardware to remain they same when no games was release last week? So people just start creating these type of article to get hit on their website?

Why not include the Wii also. Didn't the Wii also drop a lot?

Hell put the 360 there also, consider that drop also.

360 drops 49%...

No one mention 360 and Japan

whengeeksgobad3835d ago (Edited 3835d ago )

they went from selling 10 360's to selling 5. Not such big news. No one mentions 360 in japan because even MS is trying to forget they cant move a console out there for anything. This is not fanboy drivel, I own both a 360 and a ps3. This is a fact: MS couldn't have a much more difficult time moving consoles out there.
