Now before someone says this is VGChartz, it's not. They are just translating the japanese. It's Famitsu #'s for this past week.

season0073183d ago (Edited 3183d ago )

just 100k ps3 sold in 2 weeks time and 300k+ wii sold in the same period of time...o yea only north America NPD matters LOL...

and hey xbox won the Japan with the 200 lead it had a while ago! (during that week)

MURKERR3183d ago (Edited 3183d ago )

and nintendos killin everyone right now those numbers are friggin insane, this goes to show to all the fanboys who judge a games quality by sales(which is retarded),THIS CANNOT BE DONE ANYMORE,or wii fit must be the best thing since gaming began

deeznuts3183d ago

I don't even trust their translation of Famitsu, even though it's just numbers!

Gambit073183d ago

Wagamama... Wagamama...Why... Why does this word exist...

rockleex3183d ago

For tying with the PS2 in sales. ^_^

360 at $199 being beaten by the Wii at $249 by 7:1.
360 at $199 being beaten by the PS3 at $399 by 4:1.
360 at $199 being tied to the PS2 at $129.

Where's all the "360 is doomed!! Sinking ship! Titanic!" articles?

ZackFair3183d ago

almost a million sold in Japan alone!

The Killer3183d ago

360 is still at 24-25 million, the same as the original xbox!!
and its competition in japan is not ps3 but ps3 LOL!

white knight chronicles is doing pretty good, i think it will reach to 700k or even a million during its life time in japan!

damn, DS and psp r taking most of the market, yet i hear articles about psp doom and psp 2 is on the way!

gaffyh3183d ago

The week (well the 3 days) that WKC was released PS3 sales were 46,000, and this week they are 69,000. Both of them are pretty significant boosts, seen as PS3 usually sells ~30,000 each week.

It's great to see a good game do well ;)

"1.2 - ^^season, 360 has NEVER won japan firstly
and nintendos killin everyone right now those numbers are friggin insane, this goes to show to all the fanboys who judge a games quality by sales(which is retarded),THIS CANNOT BE DONE ANYMORE,or wii fit must be the best thing since gaming began "

What about kung fu panda on the 360>? Isnt that selling better then some of their "best" games.

Raoh3183d ago

wow

so that puts WKC at 500k roughly?

and if i'm reading this right..

the ps2 and the 360 are tied?

Cyrus3653183d ago (Edited 3183d ago )

No... WKC sold roughly over 202 K first week, and this past week ending on Last sunday, it sold an additional 73 K according to Famitsu.

SO it's sold roughly 276 K in the first 2 weeks in japan.

Edit Since it came out on the 25th, it sold 276 K in 9 days...

shine13963183d ago

erm...no. it puts it on 276k. as it is clearly written there. The figure on the right is the total sales. the op should have written it better i guess...

Raoh3183d ago

got it. read it wrong.

too many numbers too close together sometimes.

TheHater3183d ago

According the CNN and all these "analyst", the PS3 is suppose to be dead. How the hell is a dead console selling 68K+ in one week? That pretty strange.
Oh and wasn't WKC suppose to be a flow because Famitsu gave it a 29/40?

On a serious note, is WKC still having shipment problems?

Cyrus3653183d ago

69 K may the biggest PS3 sales since MGS 4 lanuch. (Not 100% though) and possibly for all of 2008.
