HARDWARE DSi 204,100 PSP 146,000 Wii 131,000 DSL 50,300 PS3 39,100 X360 12,900 PS2 8,700
Is that the audience for Dissidia was already built into the current install base, aside from the 146,000 who bought one. Nothing too unordinary. We've seen it with all consoles/handhelds before. Solid sales again for the PS family in Japan, Nintendo dominates everywhere and the 7 year old PS2 continues to give 360, with a now boatload of JRPGS, a run for its money.
Like I said before,unless FF14 is a X720 exclusive,the Xbox brand is going nowhere in Japan. That's the cold hard truth.
Well actually it has grown a lot compared to the beginning of the year. The 360 use to hover around 1700-3000, while the PS3s were around 7k-10k. So both have been selling about 3x what they use to.
I remember when the ps3 did 10 k a week, and everybody said it was good, now the ps3 does 30k, and the 360 does 10k, and all of a sudden 10k sux ?
i remember when the ps3 was ahead in NA in 2008 sales and now the ps3 needs saving you're right, strange init
Foxgod.10K during christmas time is not good.
Because however much i want the PS3 to do well, i can't see it doing that good in EU and NA over christmas due to the price. I can see the 360 selling double the PS3 in NA over xmas and the wii selling uhm, 5x the 360? :P In EU 360 and PS3 may be near enough but the 360 will edge over it, wii will obviously dominate once again.
During Christmas dear, during Christmas.
Happy Holidays to ALL on N4G!
combine dsi and dsl sales into one like they did way back with the gba and gbasp? Or are the two just different enough to compete against each other (dsi vs dsl)? Good numbers for all in this economy. I would have thought the 360 be back down in the sub 6-7k range but it keeps plugging along.
I would say the dsl and the dsi are even more similar then the advance and the sp.
handhelds have taken over.
seems so, but they are too cool to own, i have a dsl and a psp, and i ordered a Gp2x Wiz, a homebrew handheld with a 533 mhz processor and 64 mb memory. Its coming in februari: http://gp2x-emulation.dcemu...
I'm surprised this wasn't titled "Is 2009 going to be the year of the 360? Media Create Sales say otherwise" lol
The fact that both 360 and PS3 sales are steady is a good thing. It means people are moving over to next gen in Japan. However, they are still getting utterly destroyed by Nintendo.
That damn Nintendo...T^T Merry Christmas.
wow Nintendo just keeps printing money. the more they cash in, the more i am interested about their next consoles... what are they gonna do with all those mountains of cash? i hope they'll bring out a true graphics powerhouse console with further improved wii-like motion controls. they at least have the resources now, which they probably didnt have after the mediocre success of the Gamecube (which was unfortunate because i really liked the console)... i dont believe that Nintendo has forgotten hardcore gamers, i believe even Miyamoto would love to see what kind of a Zelda or Metroid game could be possible on a console with even more power than 360 or ps3. just random speculation but still, i like to entertain the idea heh.
Hardcore gamers only by games after you invest millions into advertising(halo/gears) but Wiifit and WiiBlah sells more, without the ads, without the hype, without any of what Sony/MS puts into their games. Its really just two different universes. Sony or MS could easily make a electronic like the Wii, and just cash in. making lesser quality games with high turnovers, Gears could be a yearly thing, as could a Gran turismo or a resistance. You honestly cant even compare the two. The only thing you can really compare is the gaming divisions. Nintendo is First, Sony is Second, and Microsoft is a distant third.
omg...Funny post.. Nintendo has put out nothing but poor quality? That's why they have the highest rated game this gen?? What exactly do yearly releases have to do with Nintendo? They do not release any of their games on a yearly basis.

PS2 8,700 it keep going and going.
How many retards can there be on this world to sell the supercharged gamecube without any good games still to?
sony does need saving final fantasy isn't going to help it for ever, and it's probably too late anyway for they systems.
It is so amusing reading the PS3 and 360 fans bickering over sales, when Wii dwarfs both of them combined! And in Japan, several times more combined. Japan is now Nintendo land, FFXIII is not going to change that, MH3 is going to confirm this, and DQX is only going to cement this even further.
