Analysis of Americas Sales for the Week Ending March 29, 2008

VGChartz writes: "Hardware sales dropped across the board this week. Wii saw a drop of approximately 150,000 units while the other platforms dropped 15,000 to 35,000 units from the previous week. The drops for most platforms are understandable considering the timing of this week. Wii is still facing supply issues, and Nintendo likely is saving some stock for Mario Kart and Wii Fit in the second quarter. Xbox 360 and PS3 are down in the wake of the Tom Clancy launch last week while preparing for the launch of GTAIV next month and future price cuts. DS and PS2 are down from the dearth of big releases this week. That leaves PSP, which did have a big release – Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – but still saw sales decline this week.

There are some interesting trends developing year over year as well. Take a look:

.......3/29/08.....3/31/07.....YoY Change
Wii....74,102........54,179............+37%
DSL..120,541.......134,530..........-10%
PS3...71,700........25,843.........+177%
PSP...71,042........39,858..........+78%

PSP + PS3 = Unbeatable Tagteam

Iamback3314d ago

PS2 is still biggest cash cow for Sony, at least for a couple of more months. They sell it for 129, who knows how little is cost them to mass produce it?! If Nintendo was making 50 bucks on Wii on day 1, than Sony is at least also making 50 bucks on each Ps2 sold, but i would guess that they make little more than that.

le killer3314d ago

don't you mean wii and dsl as the unbeatable tagteam?????

shine13963314d ago

yeh...wii and ds rule...
also what about the psp...its three on two now...

SUP3R3314d ago (Edited 3314d ago )

Actually Sony moved the most units over all the companies this week.

PS3+PS2+PSP = 226,128 est.

Wii+DSL = 194,643 est.

Overall the 360 came in last this week, but not bad for all 3 companies.
Also, I only just noticed the PS2 is the #1 console this week....what the hell?!

they try to comment in the gamer zone now so they dont get hurt so much also to say that xrats are wise gamers and not fanboys like sony gamers!
i remember i was still here when halo 3 was launched but they vanished just from a demo of GT5:p, so what will happened if MGS4 comes????
