PS3, PSP Dominate Japan

DSi and Wii remain behind Sony hardware while the PSP continues to dominate in Japan. This week's Media Create's sales charts, covering April 27 through May 3, put the system at the top of both the hardware and software charts.

Atlus brought a remake of Persona to the PSP over the week, and gamers picked it up to the tune of 79,192 units. In comparison, 2005's Devil Summoner managed total lifetime sales of 50,000 units, making this an apparent success.

Here's the full top 10 software chart.

Imagine Sony's monetary losses in producing a $400 console and then selling it for $200.

Also, I don't really know how these numbers really constitute as domination... it seems pretty neck-in-neck to me.

What do we have here? An xbox fanboy taking about "monetary loses" like he's some guy working for Sony or something. It's like he's really threatened about a PS3 price cut that he really had to say that. I really can't believe how serious some of you guys take this console war.

saj: So PS3 beats the Wii by just a couple thousand and it's dominating.. But the 360 beating the PS3 by several hundred thousand is "neck and neck".

Sales, sales, sales.. They are the worst thing in the world one week and are the best the next.

Nah, sales are pretty much always irrelevant in regards to having fun with videogames. Sometimes its fun to argue about them though, just for the sake of the debate.

Actually I'm not an Xbox fanboy. I don't even have one. In fact, I think that the PS3 is the more logical console to buy. I am, however, a realist. Like, I'm not a stupid jaded fanboy that defends Sony more often than I blink.

dustgavin3240d ago

No. Instead you come to gaming web sites to spout off at the mouth about consoles you do not even own. Sounds like a realist to me!

Mind you on a trip I took to Osaka a few years back...I saw some weird stuff. They like to put english on their T-shirts but usually it's just nonsensical stuff. Pretty funny, actually.
