PS3 Beating Up Xbox 360 In Japan

The console royal rumble gets underway in Japan. While the PS3 came out throwing punches (which were later resold on Yahoo! Auctions), the Xbox 360 didn't even quite make it into the ring. Here's the embarrassing sales figures during PS3 launch week.

PLAYSTATION 3: 81,639 units
Xbox 360: 3,864 units

The story is too old to be commented.

We all know Japanese people only buy their own stuff. To quote B.G: Sony could better produce bricks and they would still 80.000 units in Japan.

Haha this is funny. Yeah Japanese would even buy a bag of poo from Sony for 600 dollars.

Japanese are nuts. Like totally. They also like sexual games abusing little teenage girls. Japanese like to see on tv people really hurting themselves hard. Like really hard. Like so hard nobody elsewhere in the world laughs anymore but is looking shocked to the footage.

The MSX-2+ sold a long time well in Japan, although dead in the rest of the world.

The PS3 get's beating in the rest of the world. First off they can't deliver. Second, it lacks content big time. Third of, the competition has better and more exclusives. The competition has the better copies of a multiformat game (COD3, Tony Hawk, RR6/7 you name them)

Actual sales show that the 360 sold almost 7,5 mln, the PS3 sold just 270k and the Wii sold 600k.

Now with Gears of War in place for this christmas, together with Viva Piniata for the parents that shop for their childeren, 360's produced enough to be on the shelve, no PS3 to be seen due to shortages... Millions of customers searching for a next gen present...

What you'd expect? Right. Forget the strange Japanese stuff. That market is declining any way. 360 is all around in new upcoming markets like Korea and India. Where PS3 only launched in USA and Japan.

It will be kicked under the butt so hard this gen

Ah, now we see how deep your anti-Sony obsession really is. It's making more sense now...

lol b*tch up as much as u want the news tittle still remains

TheMART3927d ago

But now seen in the right perspective. As you Sony fanboys try to find and scrape together good news even as tiny and unimportant in the big picture as possible.

Unlike the 360 which brings good news constantly. Like having movie rents from off today on XBL or watching your favorite episode from Friends and multiple other shows.

Update from nexgenwars.com

"28.5%

7,262,459

17.6%

"Guys, Nextgenwars can't be accurate...

Realtime calculating is impossible...
The only thing they do is take the sales of the last months, calculate the average of units sold per minute and put it in the calculation.

For the Wii/PS3 that isn't an easy job because there are no former numbers. So I guess they're just guessing something."

Mart your a funny person,

You say one thing and mean another

This article is vintage KINGBOY garbage. He is definitely the SONY FANBOY OF THE YEAR! Don't even try and reason with him, it'll be useless. The guy finds sony bandaids better than an newsbot configured with the key words "SONY GOOD!".

Just reading his past posts, both news and comments, he's so slanted toward sony, that it's like talking to a wall.
