The LBP bundle will skyrocket PS3 sales,I'm sure

LBP + GTA4 will skyrocket PS3 sales in Japan

Sales are down because people are waiting for

a NEW PS3 SKU - 80 gig
a NEW PS3 LBP bundle
a NEW game --LBP
also GTA4 will sell some copies on PS3 on Oct 30th as well

This is just a temporary problem. Nothing serious

cherrypie3706d ago

Having to bundle your only anticipated AAA titles is a sign of weakness.

The PS3 wont sell unless you give away the "must have" titles? That doenst exactly look good for the PS3's demand.

Did MS make a discount Halo 3 bundle? No. But Sony **DID** make a discount MGS4 bundle.

Not good.

No matter how anyone spins it, PS3 and 360 are doing awful in Japan. Same cant be said about PS2, DS, Wii and PSP though.

Pennywise3706d ago

exactly... fans fighting about how 360 or ps3 is winning with numbers like this is like someone arguing about whos fart was louder. They both stink.

Emmo3706d ago

Agreed, but I still think it is funny how badly Sony are C.cknig up the PS3 in Japan

Is that Wii Music sold 99k units! I really don't get the Japanese and their taste for games someties.

PS360WII3706d ago

Dang 99k for Wii Music. Not bad really specially with a few doom and gloom articles how it's not selling. Shame Away Shuffle only did 1k :(
