DSi - 71.233 PSP - 65.765 PS3 - 25.435 Wii - 18.095 DSL - 8.948 Xbox 360 - 5.441 PS2 - 5.067
that the 360 edged out the PS2 after all.
seems like the 360 isn't competing with the ps3 in japan, instead its competing with an 8 year old ps2.
I wonder if MS will jump on the handheld market...
close call for xbox 360, it edged out an 8 year old ps2 by a hair.
the PS3 has been outselling the wii in japan so far this year...or close to it...could this be the decline of the wii and the rise of the ps3...lets see how the rest of the year plays out... Can you imagine what a price cut would do...
Agent. Keep laughing ... as long as it lasts. LOL. "In the real world" how tasteful.
fill in the blanks. :)
Good numbers for the PS3 sold 5k more than what Famitsu said... 360 back to competing with the 8 years old console..that it tried to be like ...
Dude Agent Stop being such an asshole fanboy. If PS3 is DEAD, How come it keeps on getting Exclusives? PS3 Exclusives recently announced Data-Fly Mars Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma (well the sigma version is exclusive) Atelier Rorona Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C.0081 Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Katamari Damacy Tribute Already announced PS3 exclusive God of War 3 Infamous MLB: The Show Demon Souls (Which is in english and you can import it) Gran Turismo 5 Uncharted 2 Heavy Rain MAG Quantum Theory WarDevil: Unleash the Beast Within White Knight Chronicles Yakuza 3 Under Siege X-Edge
So first you say: "360 has been outselling the PS3 worldwide for almost half a year." Then you claim: "PS3 is in Dead last place and has been all its life." So if the PS3 has been dead all its life, like you just said, then how do you describe the 360 BEFORE it actually started outselling the PS3 for the last half a year? Care to elaborate? Ironic, considering you just described Sony fanboys as "silly and goofy"...
360 getting beat 5 to 1. In every other territory the 360 isn't even beating the PS3 2 to 1. Once it gets a price cut, MS will be in last place.
Do these numbers include the systems imported from Korea? As mentioned in another article, Korea has been wiped out thanks to gamers importing PS3's into Japan.
"Yep, PS3 outsells the 360 in its home country, pop the champagne!!! Bahahahaha!!! In the meantime, in the real world, PS3 is in "Dead" last place and has been all its life." Haha funny that you would say that. Because ironically the only place the xbox 360 outsells the PS3 is in its own home country so your comment apply to 360, and sadly not PS3. Now go cry somewhere else.
Just don't play the "sales don't matter" card when March NPD releases.
Is odd but very nice. Very nice for Sony that is. If a trend continues as such I think we might have seen the quick spurt of Wii sales come to an end and now finally coming into a more stable slower trend. Perhaps the PS3 will take the lead in weekly sales for a while now and do its best to catch up. Good on you Sony!
360 needs another game to boost its hardware up.
so it can boost its numbers to the wii and ps3 averages...they needmore than just a gme in Japan...and as we already seen the rpg thing is not working...so something else has to be done...
were neck and neck in total hardware. Oddly enough Nintendo is up by 2009 according to these numbers. lol.
Good job Sony. Consider a price cut + new colour for an extra bang.
In japan they do have some color options i mean the Yakuza 3 skin looks tough i know that they have black,white, silver, and prob more who knows Oh and maybe that MGS4 metal skin
How about a PS2 price cut? Finally send off a legend of a console with bang. And just harass Microsoft a bit more. If the PS2 can nearly beat the 360 now a price cut would see the Japanese sales look some thing like this. PSP- A whole lot PS3-A lot PS2- Very many DS(+DSi)- a few Wii- A little (360 intentionally left off list)
It's about damn time Wii is starting to die in Japan. Sadly the Wii will never die in North America due to all the overweight idiots that actually think buying Wii Fit will help them lose weight.
I would love to just tell people that wii fit doesn't make them lose wait. It is just the exercise. If you did the same exercise with out the wii you would have to same results.
DIE WII!!! DIE!! hehe...I never really like the Wii to begin with and I have never buy a single Ninty console or handheld! yes...not even NES or SNES or even GB! I bought the Sega Megadrive and then PS1 and the PS2, PSP now PS3!
Actually the Wii Fit doesnt compare to REAL excursive....except for the push ups but for that id purchase a perfect push up or some bars for maximum performance... Its better and more effective when doing it officially and not using a balance board which has a wight limit...
Did the Wii's bubble burst? I hope so :D
Wii just lost bubbles -bubble.
AND FF13 is still PS3 only in Japan. yes you could import it, but there is not going to be a Japanese xbox 360 version of FF13 to my knowledge.
A $10 price drop will fill that bubble right back up.
SO CLOSEEEEEE ( AKA OLD GENERATION)
If this keeps going, I can officially say PS3 has dominated Japan. :) v1c1ous below: Why say that? Disappointed because 360 isn't performing well in Japan and you can't use Wii as you're defense anymore like you fanboys used to do?
unless the ps3 outsells the wii for the next year and half, it won't buddy.
@8.1 we have more time than that don't we?
Year three just started for the PS3 so there is still time for that system, the Xbox 360 is the only one starting year number 4...
mmmm looks like it was really the "last hope" XD
Heard that one before.. :P
Xbox 360 in Japan
360 doesn't have any good exclusives this year anyway...lol
Bu bu bu bu but wait till E3... *sniff* :'(
Just wait till the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children PS3 Bundle releases next month with the FFXIII demo........unstoppable...
A pricecut would truly slaughter the competition. o_o
Its down to Wii and PS3 now in Japan. Either way Sony will need some games against Monster Hunter 3 and Dragon Quest 10.Things will get interesting now.
Microsoft needs to pull out of Japan.Face it.The Japanese dont want to Jump In.MS should re-focus those 360 dev kits and funds to some more Western games like perhaps making another Crimson Skies game or paying Sega for rights to Shenmue 3.
no, microsoft should redo ms office 2007... that product suck BIGTIME!!
^^^^ lol Xaviertooth.... They should remade all they're products....
M$'s problem is if they dont at least look like they're trying to support Japan, then Japanese developers might pull out too. Plus pulling out would be seen as weakness and other territories would suffer as well, cos no one likes weakness. They might not like tipping money down the bottomless hole that is Japan, but they might be stuck with it.
oh noes!! someone is going to make a ps2 is doomed story!XD
lol... bubbles for you!
Ah. 360s back to where it belongs in Japan. But seriously, you gotta applaud microsoft for even bothering there. Sega had it rough with the megadrive in Japan, but at least they sold more then a million and people actually liked their games enough to be profitable during that era.
The 360 is like the bastard child who nobody loves. Occasionally uncle Sam "give" him some love, but the rest don't give a crap about him.
Damn, them first few comments struck a nerve huh?!
Wow, even the Wii got smacked around this week, good, it deserves it. Right now I truly believe the Wii is the worst bang for the buck this generation, and it has been the whole time. Nintendo made a mint off of duping people into paying $250 for a Gamecube 1.5, I mean the networking on it sucks, the $5 web browser on it is something out of a Pentium II, and the classic game library is a non-issue if you take 5 mins to find some emulators for PC. To me, if anything, motion controls hinder the enjoyment of most games, and also curb their potential. Don't get me wrong I loved No More Heroes, but I cant help but wonder how great of a game it could've been on 360 or PS3.
PS3 on the rise, Wii and Xbox on their way down.
PS3 is dominating in Japan. Looks good.
;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D Shame the PS2 didn't beat it :-( Maybe next week!!! ;-D
I don't believe the Wii has seen the last of first place. PS3 is kicking @ss in Japan though. Hope it continues, but I believe it will stay in second place in Japan unless It continues to sale this well throughout the year. But one things for damn sure, The PS3 ain't going nowhere. :)
