Sony PS3 Outsells Nintendo Wii in Japan 2 Months in a Row

For the second month straight, the Sony (NYSE:SNE) PS3 gaming console has outsold the world-leader Nintendo (OTC:NTDOY) Wii. For the 4 weeks leading up to April 26th, domestic PS3 sales reached 108,530 while Wii sales were only 67,116. PS3 was boosted by a trial launch of the upcoming game "Final Fantasy XIII," the newest installment in an immensely popular series. Watch for FFXIII hype to drive further PS3 sales while Nintendo tries to combat the system with a new Wii Sports and Electronic Arts' (NASDAQ:ERTS) new Tiger Woods game, which will feature a new Wii-mote add-on making controls much more sensitive.

DARKKNIGHT3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

looks like you tried to give yourself an agree, but you missed.


creeping judas3278d ago

I think DarkKnights just scared of clowns???

Mr_Bun3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

I don't know anyone who is afraid of a wannabe.

A word of advice:
When you decide to call others "stupid" and your only means of attack are letters and words, you had better make damn sure that your grammar is in order. Otherwise you just look like a fool!

If by "Truth" you mean unintelligent ramblings from someone lacking an education, then sure, you say the "Truth".

Edit: Really? decide to make a stealth edit and that is what you are going to type instead?

"you lokk like a turd right now"...

Oh the irony!

He chooses to waste them on really stupid comments, which is ironic considering he hates "stupid clowns".

On topic: Weak Wii Sales, Strong(er) PS3 sales.

Pennywise3278d ago

Wow what happened with this thread? lol Darkknight, you came in here with a joke, I would assume... but the more I read you were really upset about Someone piss in your cheerios?

Siagon - It is not a real website. It was me being sarcastic as usual because this NEWS4Gamers site LOOOOVES sales so much. Just a suggested name change.

Bun - No need to get worked up about Darkknight. Though it doesnt stand true that people with more bubbles are automatically right, it sure seems like people with less than 5-6 bubbles are unintelligent trolls. Seems like the people with 1-4 bubbles have nothing smart to say. I dont know what else to say about this... Ive read this thread a few times and still cant figure out why Darkknight is so serious.

menoyou3278d ago

Finally Japan got a clue.

XxZxX3278d ago

despite the disagree, i find Dark knight's damn funny.

pixelsword3278d ago

Dark Knight probably said what he said because of Pennywise being a clown, like you know, The Joker?

50CALheadshot3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

What you state, is exactly what it is.

Seriously, the mrbun character got destroyed.

I found darkknight's comments witty and spot, mr bun never made a Talk about "higher education"? Then he tries to correct grammar errors.....LAME.

mrbun= 0

badz1493278d ago

wii is dyng... thats is great.

KruLLit3278d ago

Do you really expect the wii to die?

specialguest3278d ago

At a total of 45 million consoles sold and counting, I don't think the Wii is dying. Maybe the senior citizens who play the Wii, but that's a whole different story for another day. haha

badz1493278d ago

that's insensitive but funny at the same time! I also don't think the Wii is dying! it's simply "resting" after a great dash for over 2 years leaving all the competitors in the dust! what Ninty have to do is just release a new mario or zelda game and see the Wii will be dashing again! trust me!

And I remember Iwata saying back in 07': "we [nintendo] will never count Sony out". Smart man. PSP also has been outperforming DSi in Japan again. I for one have respect for Sony AND Nintendo, and gaming gets better when they start butting heads. :)

SprSynJn3278d ago

I should hope they don't count them out. They buried them for two generations in a row, and they could do it again. Microsoft on the other hand...

Equinoxe_73279d ago

But it's obvious that one brand can't own the whole game market, thanks to 2 good competitors, MS and Nitendoooo.

sephy 9 2 53279d ago
