better than? Oh I see what your saying. The sales have settled after the release of Gundam Muso - but they have settled at 32thousand instead of the 19thousand before hand. Shows what games do for a games console...:P

and i suspect that it will only get better and better. I'm sure the wii wont fall off the charts. and given the success it has been so far they will have to do a lot more to justify the initial hype for it. nintendo has thier work cut out for them. but their geniuses so i have on the other hand must keep up what thier doing and prove that it is the offering that they said it 600 for ______ heres the _______ i think they have started in the right direction and after this years E3 i think they will start seeing some real progress.

So as of the begining of March

Console Sales
Xbox 360 9,650,000
Wii 6,000,000
PS3 2,190,000

But that's not including this week I don't think. 360 selling well in US, but not Japan, ps3 selling well in Japan, but not the US. Pretty level...which makes that lead hard to catch up to.

If Sony is planning to be #1 this gen; is going to have to do better than "better" they have to double or even triple xbox 360 sells anytime soon. Specially in the US.

It's obvious that at this rate other consoles are not falling behind in term of sells.

techie4289d ago (Edited 4289d ago )

I agree. But I would like to say that I think the 360 has the US covered.

But when you're talking about tripling sales...well the ps3 is doing more than that in Japan 32,115 to 3,333. And since Japan is a third of console sales for Sony on every platform then they will rocket in Japan.

Problem area is the US...we'll see what happens in the rest of the world.

But really there's going to be three strong consoles this generation and I think that's a good thing.

The path the PS3 now follows greatly resembles the one the PS and PS2 followed. It's been a normal thing for developers to have trouble opening up the hardware Sony puts into their machines. I believe with time and exclusive releases Sony will begin to build momentum. Microsoft will continue to sell 360 at a steady rate. I dont see them giving up their lead for a while, if at all. The Wii I'm not too sure about. I've played a few times and I just can't seem to get excited about it. I think Nintendo is riding the a hype train that will slow down with time. That train can completely come off the rails if they run into the same issues with lulls in games being released, like in previous generations. No matter what ends up happening it will be years before a winner is declared.

"But really there's going to be three strong consoles this generation and I think that's a good thing." I agree.
I believe that thing may be divided in 3 different territories.
wii dominating Japan, 360 dominating the US and PS3 dominating Europe.
I can be wrong, but it seems like Americans are learning to accept the xbox brand.

remeber that when blue dragon was released xbox sales were at 35000, just like ps3 sales, I was expecting the ps3 sales to stay higher this week than what they are.
