You've got to hand it to Microsoft, they really refuse to give up on the Japanese market even with horrendous sale figures and no hope of a 360 sales boost for that region....."Never Give up, Never Surrender" (Galaxy Quest)

Oh snapz...PSP outsold DS ? Whoa! ? This is a first in a long time. Then Again, this is VG so I will wait for an official report.

EDIT: I mean, weekly ofcourse

i hope ps3's hardware sales will improve when yakuza 3 will come out

killer_trap3253d ago

indeed, i never thought ps3 will sink back to sub 15,000 a week after a price cut and the avalability of dynasty warriors, GT prologue and hot shots golf but it did.

right now all i can say to sony is look at your own psp numbers before the slim psp and FF combo and take a hint. the japanese gaming comunity doesn't like big bulky hardware and despite the ps3 looking nice it's still a big mother $#@#$. add to that there's still no FF game on the system, come to think of it there's aren't any desent RPG's what soever on the system( the japanese kind).

so here's the winning formula.
1- price cut
2- redesing the system and make it smaller
3- add color to your collection
4- help square release the FF games.......by any means.
5- a constant flow of must have games won't hurt either.
