VGChartz have set up a new list comparing Japanese PS3 and Wii software sales. Who's come out on top so far? Well, the charts reveal that the wii, so far, has a higher attach rate than the PS3 (2.30 vs 1.35).
without listing a stupid goddamn article.
Well could you? Wii doesn't have so much more great titles available then the PS3 and still it sells more games. The PS3 attach rate is very, very low @ 1.35 game per unit sold. Seems there aren't many games around that PS3 owners want
OMG!#@ t3h PS3 ish d00m3d!!@#
I thought that they could move games in Japan for sure. I guess Japan is not the land of OZ for PS3 fans.
Hehe look at this PS3 total "TOTAL 1,097,000" Wii Play "2. Wii Play - 1,097,000" - I thought that was bundled in? Non? PS3 Sonic "12. Sonic - 25,000" Wii Sonic "22. Sonic and the Secret Rings - 19,000" - WTF!?
In Japan you buy the Wii for around $210 with no game. Hajimete no Wii Pack aka (Wii Play US ver) $40 in Japan sold separately. Wii Sports $40 in Japan also sold separately. So apparently Wii play and Wii Sports is very popular in Japan right now.
This is old news. Any Sony-fan could tell you that the Wii was beating it in every department in sales, whether they like to believe it or not. But the PS3 attach rate right now is 3.4, and steadily climbing. Not too bad, considering the fairly lackluster games available right now. Over the course of the year it should do very well though.
It's less than half the price of PS3. That leaves more money left over for games. Then again, there might be something else going on there...
... mart slept peacefully throughout the night. q: i guess like every other news from japan... 360 won't be compared again. q:
TheMarts favorite stat. Attach rates. Who cares I'm more of a renter then a buyer. So I still play games that these attach rates don't account for.
Well... Sony cares! The game producer cares! Renting = no attach rate dude. Buying means cash for Sony, who needs it hard because they loose so much money on each unit sold. The game producer needs money to get their investments back and hope to make some profit. This attach rate means trouble. Even the world wide attach rate of 3.4 game per PS3 sold is low. The 360 had 4.5 games per unit sold @ launch, the PS3 had 1.5 world wide. Now it's on 3.4, the 360 is on 5.3 (it's the attach rate from last year, could even be higher now). And it indicates that there are no games available on the PS3 that are worthy enough to buy them. That's a bit of a bad situation. High priced console, but no games to play
For the sake of discussion and not arguement. I as a PS3 gamer, could care less for the current attach rate. The only difference is that you use that number as a way to diss all PS3 gamer for "wasting" $600 on a Console. I have bought VF5, NBA 2k7, and fight night round 3. I have rented and played Oblivion, Motorstorm, Virtua tennis, Resistance. So in the course of 5 months I have got more then me gaming fix with my PS3. Now as far as a business stand point I can see where the attach rate might matter. I work for Sony, but not for any part of the company where this number means something to me. I am for the better part a Consumer of Sony products that just happen to work for them. I have played in 5 months a total of 7 PS3 games. Plus I just finished God of War 2 that I played on my PS3, and still go to gamestop and by used PS2 games cause they are cheaper that way. Fact is the PS3 has more then made itself useful in my house. I have played 7 PS3 games many more PS2 games, Bought a few Blu-ray movies, backed-up tons of Digital pics surfed the Internet with my PS3 when the family PC wasn't availible for use. The $600 that I invested in my system is more then fair considering how I use my machine. In the 1 and a half years the 360 has been out I have only wanted to play 2 games Gears of War and Dead raising. Now to me at this point the 360 has not offered anything that I want to play on that system other the 2 games mentioned above. So why would I Spend $400 dollars on a system that only has two games that interest me? It would make no sense. I am not much for online games and am from the land where Online game began. I don't care about gamer score (Cause if i where to achieve high gamer score it would always be suspect even if it were legit) The 360 has nothing in that White box that makes want to go buy it right now. I know that in the end every company has to make money, but their bottom dollar does not take away from the fun I have with my PS3. It seems that you on the other hand have to make it known that the 360 is the best gaming system out there. even if the only person you convince is yourself. Why is that? Are you really that mad you purchased the system that you have to keep convincing yourself you made a good purchase? Do you work for MS in someway? Cause it seems that this company has to be labled #1 in order for you to keep living. I work for Sony and careless about their attach rating. Am a gamer not a suit. And I know that the game developer and publishers care about this number cause that's how they make their money. And thats part of the beauty of Multi-platform releases. Yeah for the most part the PS3 is getting the sh1t end of the port stick, but if these games sell even just a quarter of what it sells on the 360 a future version of the game will still come out cause they would have made profit on the 360 version and also turned a profit on a PS3 version since they don't put the same amount of many into porting a game to a secondary system. So you can make whatever you want out of those attach rates, to me they don't mean anything I play plenty of games have fun with my machine and $600 was a great bargin for everything I use my PS3 for. The way I see it with games like Lair, Heavenly sword, MGS4, FF13, NG Sigma, Killzone 2 coming out I am more then Happy with the My purchase. Right now the PS3 just came out the oven and Resistance and Motorstorm, VF5 and many more games are the frosting and when all the highly anticipated EXCLUSIVE titles come out that's just cherry on top of cherries that I am going to enjoy. And man I like cherries.
Apparently they sell separately in Japan. Skidmarks like Mart jump on this sort of new likes its some bad thing for PS3 which they love but I think the interesting thing in this article is without Wiiplay and Wiisports the attach rate would be 1.08. I honestly thought everyone was buying it for Zelda but I guess not. Sorry, but successful as they are, I dont consider WS and WP real games. Pleasants diversions yeah but not something you'd spend hours on. If they were on Playstation they would be $10 downloads. Looks like the gimmick is still carrying the Wii through so good for them but like I said without those 2 "games" they would be looking very sad indeed.
Wiisports had to be purchased in japan. It was only bundled in for the U.S. and European launch. Thing is in Japan its a whole different gaming culture. It's so different that they still have arcades that are still populated the way they were here (U.S.) in the 80's and 90's. Wii is little more then a fade just like the SNK color and wonderswan were, but you can't hate on Nintendo's success they have just bankrolled their next console off the early success of the Wii and that for the sake of the grander things in gaming is a good thing.
And you're right the Wii has practically guaranteed we will see another Nintendo console next gen. If they had bombed like the last 2 gens, it might have been the end for them and no one wants that. I just want some games from them. People knock the PS3 but at least they have 5 to 10 good games right now with plenty coming. I do want Wii to be more than a fad which is what I think it owes most of its success to now. I mean c'mon, Wiisports, and Wiiplay. Are they really the pinnical of Wii gaming? I haven't touched my Wii for ages (get your mind out of the gutter) and the most use it gets now is VC games. Its going the same route as Gamecube for me. Brilliant Nintendo games but only 1 to 3 a year at best. I'm a games slut, I need more than that. And did anyone notice what I said before? Without the runaway success (stop saying success, I need a thesauras)of WP and WS the attach rate would be 1.08. I think thats worth keeping in mind, especially when these clowns keep trying to rub Nintendo's fortunes (theres a different word) in our faces just because they hate PS3. Nintendo are very lucky for the casual gamer but full props to them cos thats who their price point appeals to.
was more of a overall statement made and not directed at you directly so sorry for that. And i had all but forgotten the Game & watch I had the Donkey kong and that was the most fun a kid could have at the laundry mat with his folks waiting for the cloths to be done. I see were you're coming from but nintendos success can also be its down fall. Gamecube was a great machine just didn't have good developer support. The Wii is also a great machine with at this great developer support, but the guts of the machine leave a lot for the more then casual gamer to desire. I mean I'll buy a Wii for get togethers or to play with my wife and all, but how many things out there share traits with the wii that we have all but forgotten, Cell phone game, Gameboy games, Even old school board games like monopoly, they have the same traits that the Wii does now, they are easy to pick up and play but once the fun stops and you get your fix people put it in their closet and just forget about till the time seems right to play it again. I wish for the sake of my sons gaming future all the success in the world for nintendo I grew up on nintendo and I couldn't even imagine how my gaming life would be without NES, but Nintendo needs to maybe adapt some of Sony's idea, think about the future and well as you present. Even if the start is weak it's the Items with long term staying power that at the end are the ultimate success.
it doesn't matter which is higher... both have different market, I don't think I gonna play wii alone... feel so stupid. *i tried* wii is fun when we(ii) play together... that's why it's called wii. spare time alone? PS3 is ... or 360 if it still working T_T but why 360 is not included on the track btw?
Oooooold news,TheMart is so desperate to post antips3 articles,I feel sorry for him
Who cares, just another article showing us that the mart is not happy with his 360 and needs to justify his purchase.
the ps3 and there are different variries R:fom (FPS) VF5 (figher) oblivion (RPG) motorstorm (Racing) and thats why i like sony, 4 totally different games, 4 totally differnent genres, and not a bunch of shooters........
"not a bunch of shooters..." That is a very ignorant statement. You are implying that all 360 games are shooters, or at least all good titles are shooters, and use as evidence four games across four genres? I am going to assume that including VF5 and Oblivion was the result of a mental lapse on your part. Or, are you actually trying to prove the PS3's superior library by listing cross-platform games? The 360 has its own stellar performers in each of those categories: Shooter: Gears Fighter: DOA4 (or VF5) RPG: Oblivion Racer: PGR3 Let's add a few genres (and we'll limit ourselves to console exclusives)... Sandbox: Crackdown, Saint's Row Mech: Chromehounds Strategy: Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth Strategy/Action: The Outfit MMO: Test Drive Unlimited Suspense/Mystery/Horror: Condemned: Criminal Origins Platformer/Action: Dead Rising These games are all good titles, with some standouts like Chromehounds and Dead Rising. The Xbox gets good shooters, yes. But it gets many more games as well. Educate yourself.
looking good on VG mart; to this point. Let's remember that the wii (like the 360) had a healthy headstart on the PS3, so holla at me after X-mas '07 and let's see how things are shaking out then. What's the matter mart....is the "wii" in the wii-60 the only thing you can chime about right now. W3LCOM3 CHANG3 marty, and welcome your new name "wii-(e)lite". Yeah that's better.
Oddly enough my Wii tells me I've spent at least 1-3 hrs playing Wii Sport or Wii Play With friends this number goes up to 4-5 hrs. I tend to use my Wii on a daily basis for news and weather and voting and surfing the net and playing VC games. Still waiting on a dual shock powered PS3 and GT5..which is at least a yr away...
