VGChartz Report: Americas Sales for the Week Ending March 22

While no title debuted as strongly as Super Smash Brothers Brawl did last week, software sales remain high this week. Hardware sales, except for the DS, are up significantly as well this week. Nintendo's two platforms, Wii and DS outsold all other platforms combined this week. Wii in particular saw enormous sales; over 225,000 units were sold, nearly double from last week. DS sales were down from the previous week, a trend that is likely to continue until more compelling software or a new price cut arrive. Behind DS, the four remaining platforms sold between 75,000 and 95,000 units. Xbox 360 hit 92,000 on the strength of the new Tom Clancy Game, while PS3, PS2, and PSP all sold about 80,000 units. PS2 and PS3 sold almost identically for the week, at ~82,200 and ~82,900 respectively.

3.22.08 3.15.08
Wii 228,750 127,330 +80%
DS 114,206 141,999 -20%
PS3 82,921 63,820 +30%
PSP 78,706 66,435 +18%

I know they are just sales estimate. But it appears that Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 didn't do so bad with 362,827. At least on Xbox 360.

sonarus3218d ago (Edited 3218d ago )

agreed. Can't say i am surprised. It was one of the best games on the 360 when it first came out. I unfortunately went with the ps3 version which was crap. As always though 360 software continues to rise.

I kinda find it hard to believe that R6V2 was responsible for 360 hardware boost. If anything i would say maybe they increased the supply, because the game hardly got any hype and majority of the ppl buying have to be people who played the original

and even during the slow months. Well guess that means the industry remains healthy.

joydestroy3218d ago

great games coming out in the months to come which is crazy because usually the better ones come out around the holidays.

games like GTA4 and MGS4 are going to help the gaming industry. '08 is going to surpass '07 easily. price drops on consoles and more AAA titles are going to drive sales up.
