PSP outsells everything in Japan
Not yet, BUT later PSP support from Japan and Western developers is really impressive. That should definitely push PSP ahead in Japan. Of`course, DS will have it`s DQIX.., but still, when there are so many PSP games incoming - http://www.neogaf.com/forum... - it`s better then just ONE big game. =) Anyway, PS3 is already for 9 weeks ahead of Wii, very GOOD. Killzone 2 made 43k first week, that over 100% increase from first week, which eventually may lead to over 100k sales in Japan. Since CoD 4 did only around 120k on PS3, that`s pretty good number for KZ2. PS3 FTW! =)
"buh buh kz2 teh no sell well as halo 3....kz2 for teh floppage"......idiots, this game is awesome.
I'm kinda surprised that the Wii sales are low (obviously higher than last week), I expected MHG to make more of an impact.
@1.3 A four year old game's port bundled with a demo won't move new Wii units. None of the console versions of Monster Hunter sold very well compared to the PSP games.
wait till moster hunter 3 <3 (I'm so glad capcom made the right decision and made the game a wii exclusive instead of a ps3 one)
@Excel Spot on dude. MH is NOT a good selling game on consoles. Its home is the PSP. Japaneses just love to play the game together over an Adhoc connection. People should remember that with a much bigger installed base than Wii' s, MH on the ps2 didnt sell very well. I expect DQ will be a more significant bump for Wii sales. EDIT: BTW, Im noticing the pretty good KZ2 figures and 360 horrible sales numbers. Idk why but Famitsu always calculate PS3 sales lower than Media Create.
that none of the monster did well on home console and that a new for the PSP is coming soon Capcom already has a back-up plan if this fails(which i hope it doesn't) Anyway when the games is released over here or where your at I hope you support it and enjoy and not worry about the sales
@excel - true, but the game came with a demo for Monster Hunter 3 didn't it? That's why I expected a huge jump, like FF13 demo with PS3
People should have waited for the new PSP Go! to come out before buying the older models. Oh well, probably the casuals that dont research before buying.
ps3>wii again just thought i should point that out i love my wii and my ps3
The 360 is in a pretty unhealthy position, a better first party presence in the region should make things a bit better.
Wada said "almost xenophobic" to you
O-o KZ2 did 43,000?
Now that is a surprise.
R:fom has done over 140mill in JPN to date and though Halo3 did over 60mill it's 1st week in JPN, sales abruptly halted cause it's finding it hard to push past to the 80mill mark to date. It's encouraging so I'm thinking KZ3 may likely do CoD4 or R:fom numbers on JPN for sure. - YAY for potentially more Sequels ^-^
@Chubear Im pretty sure you mean thousands not millions!
At least one region doesnt worship the Wii, to think not even Monster Hunter could help it Although JP is quite a small region, so i doubt Nintendo care that much especially when they got the rest of the world
Yes, it's quite surprising that a port of a 5 year old game didn't help its sales. Incredible. I'm completely flabbergasted.
bubu but Monsta HuNTers wii!!
THAT'S WHY THEY put a controller and MH3 demo in it..........
I doubt it's because the game is ignored , mostly because the console probably peaked among most "true gamers" . Most non casual gamers that care about MH3 probably already got the console
Go Killzone 2. Good debut.
ps3 sold better than Wii in japan (in 2009) .. and I think at the end of 2009 it will be the same (FFXIII)
Wait for e3. Sony is going to keep this momentum going. I guess those FFVII AC bundles sold out quick. Which would explain the sharp drop from last week.
WOW! killzone 2 did 43k! nice!
I thought that 'Monster Hunter G'(er i think it's called that)game for the 'Wii' would make the 'Wii' sell more than everything??? Strange that. Well done PS3 + PSP!!! ;-P + KZ2!!! ;-P Oh + PS2!!! ;-D Maybe next week you(i.e PS2)can beat the 'ChatBox 360' again!!! ;-D
monster hunter 3 for wii allready out?
360 beat the ps2 this week. congrats to MS for keeping up with a 10year old console. Done themselves proud.
I guess the PS3 can be proud as well then... remember articles like this? http://www.gamesindustry.bi... PS2 continues to outsell PlayStation 3 in Japan. Sales of the PlayStation 3 in Japan have dropped once again this week, leaving the PlayStation 2 to outsell its successor for the second week running. According to figures from Media Create, the PS2 sold 8618 units for the week ended October 5, compared to 7232 PlayStation 3 units, down from over 1000 units the previous week. Even during that week... the 360 outsold the PS3... Although Microsoft's Xbox 360 (8271 units) continues to outsell the PlayStation 3 in the region, it too has been outsold by the much older PS2 system. This weeks PS3 sales in Japan are a big drop from last weeks. April 13-19 = 62,527 PS3s April 20-26 = 21,000 PS3s
I wonder if they'll separate PSP and PSP Go sales into two different categories, I have a suspicion that they won't.
Why wouldnt they ? they separate the ds and dsi . They wouldnt only if the changes arent that big and it's just a number like 4000
Well that's it, they do separate DSL and DSi instead of just saying DS like they do with the PSP so I'm just wondering if they're actually going to separate them with the PSP and PSP Go.
I'm guessing they're kept separate because the DSi can play games the DSL can't. PSP Go and PSP will share the same games.
We know nothing about a "maybe" new PSP. It might well have a touch screen - and motion recognition (iphone counter ?) Should that happen, there will certainly be some new Go! games. Also, what is a DSi exclusive game right now ?
The downloadable ones that are mostly just puzzle games. I guess it might be because they can play different games but it seems odd to me to separate them.
When Japan finds out about the new PSP coming out, sales will drop.
lol George are you saying exclusives will make things better?Star ocean,last remnant,infinite undiscovery,lost odyssey,lol
they would have if they hadnt come so late , and were better .
the xbox "THREE-SH!T-TAY" only sold ~ 300 more units than ps2? dam talk about getting B!T(H slapped in the mouth ouch!
nice try ps2, you almost catch up.
Can someone explain why some people call the 360 a chat box? i just don't get it.
i think i can answer u that :P and.. u say that because Sir Ken_Kutaragi right?, i remember one time he *fight* with some1 from here, the person was saying *still ps3 dont have cross in game chat HAHAHA* and things like that, he type so many times that sentence, that it looked if that were the only important thing that matters, then Ken started to call *chatbox* the 360 <--lol, i remember this cuz i laughed at that so many times :P lol ----------------------------- ------------------------------ - ------- ontopic: its true monster hunter ALREDY IS OUT? i was expecting something like Wii-10748931748 Ps3- 21000 Xbox- 0 obviusly not like that but u got my point right? lol
ok makes sense now-lol
Chatbox is a registrated TM by Sir Ken since apparently, xbots use their machine as a telephone.
^^^ lol yea aparently, xbox= msn
That's it! They're buying the 360 as a telephone! For $50 /year unlimited calls world-wide. That's actually a pretty good deal lol XD
360 5100 HA-HA
What IS the PSP ???
well the PS3 was also at 5k in japan last year, haha! Too bad the ps3 is WAY behind the 360 in the USA.. only 39k there.. LOL The MORE games the PS3 gets the less it sales in the USA, lol... PS3 is dead there. Also in europe 30k less that 360. YOu can laugh ALL the way, fact is.. that since january the 360 got a lead over 500k MORE consoles.. i predict at least 1 million by the end of 2009.. the differnce grows and grows...
The 360 can sell all the consoles under the sun - Still won't make it any good compared to the PS3 though (just my opinion of course). Besides, what do US sales have to do with an item about Japanese sales?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! 360 <- ^
I think the xbox has the swine flu
