VGChartz writes: "With low supply of PS3 this week, PS3 sales dipped to under 30,000 units as Sony begins to work in its new sku. Xbox 360 sales dropped as well, though it appears Microsoft had more of its old model left in the retail channel this week.
The week ending July 26, 2008 feels like a repeat of the early weeks in 2007. Why? Well during the current PS3 sku transition this week, PS2 outsold PS3. Since the PS3 was available for $400 last October, it has been outselling its predecessor most weeks. However, in early 2007, with all but a few of the $500 PS3s gone, and most PS3s at $600 Wii, PS2 and Xbox 360 were outselling PS3 so in that sense this week is very similar to spring 2007 weeks when PS3 at its lowest point. There are differences from spring 2007 too. Xbox 360 and PSP are now routinely outselling PS2 for instance. That was not the case in spring 2007. All in all though, the pattern this week is quite different from just a month ago, when PS3 was trailing only Wii and DS on the Metal Gear Solid 4 boost. The main reason for the flip in sales position is that Microsoft has more old skus to clear out of the channel than Sony does right now."
