Analysis of Americas Sales for the Week Ending April 5, 2008

VGChartz writes: "After a slowdown in hardware sales last week, sales have rebounded for most platforms this week. Wii sales increased the most over last week after seeing the largest drop two weeks ago to the previous week. Both DS and PSP were up slightly from last week as well, though only by 10-15%, whereas Wii sales more than doubled from the previous week. Xbox 360 and PS3 sales were both down over 15% from the previous week. With Microsoft and Sony likely preparing for GTAIV and/or price cuts later in the year, the end of the fiscal year, and increased Wii supply, the drop in sales for both consoles was probably both due to lower supply and lower demand than in previous weeks. PS2 saw the least change from the previous week; it dropped only 6%, to a still very respectable 80,000 units sold – higher than both PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.

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

.........4/05/08.....4/07/07.......YoY Change
Wii....166,547........55,666..........+199%
DSL..143,579.......130,944..........+10%
PS3...60,074........24,283...........+147%
PSP...87,826........47,422..........+85%
360....56,539........42,917..........+32%
PS2...80,255........62,593..........+28%
