that the 360 edged out the PS2 after all.

xztence3071d ago

seems like the 360 isn't competing with the ps3 in japan, instead its competing with an 8 year old ps2.

Gambit073071d ago

I wonder if MS will jump on the handheld market...

arika3071d ago

close call for xbox 360, it edged out an 8 year old ps2 by a hair.

Saigon3071d ago

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...

Danja3071d ago

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"...

Xiru3071d ago

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.

SuperM3071d ago

"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.

Fox013071d ago

Just don't play the "sales don't matter" card when March NPD releases.

SL1M DADDY3071d ago

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.

Saigon3071d ago

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...

butterfinger3071d ago

were neck and neck in total hardware. Oddly enough Nintendo is up by 2009 according to these numbers. lol.

jjl3071d ago

Good job Sony. Consider a price cut + new colour for an extra bang.

XxSpiiKeZxX3071d ago

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

Snake Raiser3071d ago (Edited 3071d ago )

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)

Chris Hansen3071d ago

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.

Snake Raiser3071d ago

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.

badz1493071d ago

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!

XxSpiiKeZxX3071d ago

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...
