PSP - 39,100 Dsi - 37,000 PS3 - 23,900 Wii - 19,500 DSL - 6,500 X360 - 6,100 PS2 - 4,000
Pretty Sh**ty numbers all around.
Ps3 maintains its lead over Wii however
for how long though? I believe in total numbers the high sells is still leaning on the Wii's side a bit lol
Well I want to get a Wii for the really good games it has got so far. I haven't got to play mario galaxy yet. Sorry I forgot people think that a sales spike is winning...
Anything to try and bash the PS3 eh? "Well it isn't ahead by much!" I seem to have forgotten. What is the cost difference?
xbox 360- 7,016 great sales spike....NO.
Sorry I forgot people think that a sales spike is winning... The thing is a spike over the course of time becomes a plateau. This is a spike /\ and this is a plateau /--------\ So which shows the weeks and weeks of PS sales?
It's not much of a sales spike if PS3 has been beating the Wii for over the last 8 weeks. So far, by consoles sold this year in Japan, PS3 is winning.
The Monster Hunter games are designed to be played with friends. The wii friends codes and poor online service make it hard for this to happen.
the PS3 still outsold the wii...and with MH out...
well to be honest no one really expected MHG to push Wii hardware it's just a port of a 4 year old PS2 game... MH3 will sure move some hardware on the Wii side.. overall a rather slow week which is to be expected nothing big on any platform.... good sales for the PS3 once again
Wii is dying...
surprised that the PSP is outselling the newly release DSi. WTF is going on with Sony and Nintendo in Japan? PS3 is back to earth in Japan.
The DSi isn't newly released in Japan. It's nearly half a year old and the PSP is behind the DS anyhow. Keep in mind the PSP is also on it's third model(the Go will be it's fourth). @V: Well it was released in November so yup.
oh, I didn't know that the DSi came out in Japan about half of a year now. Edit: Oh it was release this month in Europe and the United States.
What was your point about the PSP being on it's third model? The DS is also on it's third model. DSi>DSlite>DS The Japanese simply prefer the PSP. They love their Monster Hunter more than Pokemon. OK, I see your point, but it is pretty sad that the DSi has already taken a back seat to the PSP (even being out 6 months). DS sales are going down again, along with the Wii's. Japanese sales affect me in no way, shape, or form, but these are facts.
Well that's my point, they're both on their third model but they separate the DSi and DSL's sales. ...and Monster Hunter may outsell Pokémon but the DS is still outselling the PSP. My problem is; saying the PSP is outselling the DSi is akin to saying in America the PS3 outsells the Elite 360s.
Monster Hunter 3 demo didn't do sh*t for the Wii.
wasn't some site was expecting the Wii to sell 100K during the week of the demo?
Japanese love their MH on the GO...not in a family room. New PSP MH will sell more than the Wii game.
has been played to hell already on the PS2 and PSP, it is a port of an old game ... I'm actually surprised that it sold 130k first week. It is not a indicator of how MH3 will perform imo.
the ps3 countinues to "wii" all over the Wii
Another perfect week for the PSP. amd the PS3 is still the top selling home console in Japan! As it should be.
Only teh Xbutts cares about sales america=planet earth
nice one and somehow true, xbots thinks America = Planet Earth
;-D + GO!!! PSP!!! ;-P + X360 - 6,100??? ;-D ;-D ;-D MEGA-EMBARRASSING for M$ and their ChatBots!!! ;-D
Nice big numbers compared to NPD. hehehe
oh what a great day this would be if cared about sales...but i dont so w/e
yeah sure ya dumb hypocrite
So what are you doing in a thread about sales then? Hippocrite much?
So funny how some of you hold so much weight in Japan on numbers. Pretty pathetic to say that the PS3 is CRUSHING the Wii at only 3k more. Yet it is no where near catching up in Japan or overall. Some of you hold onto these numbers like they are your life line.
I think they meant that in regards to the fact that all the PS3 had was Killzone 2 (a genre not big in Japan) while the Wii had a MH title which came with the demo for MH3, and the PS3 still outsold the Wii The most popular console teamed with one title which is very popular in Japan has not proven to benefit either. This could be signs for Japan as a whole: MH3 might not have as much importance then Capcom believed. Of course when the final game ships that might be a different story, but it doesn't' bode well for Nintendo atm.
While it's true that the numbers look small in comparison to other territories, it's significant in Japan. Although this week in particular show average numbers, if Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo doesn't think Japan is important, than please explain why Microsoft tries so hard to secure franchises in Japan. And when FFXIII releases, it'd be interesting to see the numbers then. Final Fantasies have hit millions in Japan... Millions... So let's theoretically say it pushes at least 1 million units in Japan, that can be added towards the overall units sold world wide. And for your last comment about sales numbers tieing onto people's lives, I agree. They're just numbers. But it's still there for debate and that's what most people are doing. It's the fanboys that scream in pain or glory everytime.
360 had a big boost with Star Ocean 4 for about a week. Ps3 saw boost in hardware sales with SF4, RE5, Yakuza 3, and FF: AC Complete. PSP had crisis core ff7 and final fantasy dissadia. However Monster Hunter, which is a big franchise in japan for the wii was expected to boast hardware sales of the wii and it hasn't yet is sort of an enigma.
PS3 recently got Yakuza 3, KZ2, RE5 and SFIV so sales should be up for PS3 for a while. Nintendo numbers wont spike back up until Nintendo unleashes their Japanese line up for 2009.
LOL. You right, PS3 has been piling up an amazing lineup this year, but is funny you mentioned KZ2 (this baby did a better than expected job last week) and left FFXIII demo (and The Cloud PS3) out of that list. :D
I do not like the Wii, but it is no where near dying, sales have to go down, because everyone on the planet that wants one, pretty much owns one, so the sales are eventually going down
Regarding the low Wii numbers, I just would love to see NA and EU follow Japan trend. Wii should sell cause it got good, appealing software, not because some gimmickry and WiiFit. MH wont push Wii sales significantly, but I expect DQ do. That's perfectly fine to me. An amazing jRPG as DQ is meant to be played whatever the console. If Wii werent so expensive (yeah is a rather expensive piece of old gen tech) I'd get one as soon as DQ appears in NA.
http://www.m-create.com/ran... PSP 41,187 DSi 37,495 PS3 23,351 Wii 18,439 Xbox 360 7,016 DS Lite 6,374 PS2 4,524 The hardware number is this.
According to Media Create numbers, PS3 has been beating Wii for 9 weeks in a row.
the last year of dominace of wii is 2008>>>>>2009 ps3 you dominate the world....
Daaaamn, go Sony.
I think Japaneses are starting to realize the lack of good games on the Wii. To be honest I only use my Wii for Brawl. =/ ... However I use my PS3 almost all days thanks to the solid quality library of games. That reminds me I need to finish RE5 to start Demon's Souls...
