PS3 sales Slump To 10,000 This Week In Japan - Wii Sells Over 75,000

In what must be very disappointing news for Sony, Wii sales were around 7 times as high as PS3 sales in Japan this week, following Super Paper Marios release(which sold over 150,000 copies). PS3 sales have been decreasing week by week in Japan and they are likely to drop to around the 5,000 mark with no major releases until July. The PS3 is suffering a similar fate in the US and Europe, with Wii still sold out everywhere.

Like I said before... The PS3 is bought by fanboys and then... Not sold at all anymore.

Japan: 10k a week now.
USA: 130k a month (360 sells between 200k and 240k the last months)
UK: dropped to 17k some weeks ago. Mark my words. They're close to 10k to 12k now also.

It falls back more and more... Anyone remember this picture? It just tells the PS3's faith

Why are you so desperate to point this out every freaking time there is an opportunity.
I would love to see your comments when the PS3 outsell the 360 in total numbers.

Deep, come on dude, why report this? The Sony fanboys always want to get VGA because it's Sony/PS3 positive and suddenly it's no good anymore?

This is news. It's on Maxconsole. I can't see why you would report this for real besides not wanting to read the truth...

I ask the community. Is VGcharts off limits?

ok community decided

BrotherSic3768d ago

VGcharts are a big no from me :)

XxZxX3768d ago

VG charts is good, they dont estimate Japan data, all came from M-create before they published their finding. For US data, they're been over estimate and readjust once they receive NPD Data.

Blasphemy3768d ago

Deep whats wrong with vgcharts?

techie3768d ago (Edited 3768d ago )

Well you all change your tune now...but I was punished for posting it about a month ago...by people like themart etc. And I was told that vgcharts are off limits. People saying...oh it's all made up etc. saying Oh the 360 has passed 10million by far and the ps3 is no where near 3million. And now you're all saying it's fine. I'm so confused. I mean i reported all those posts saying the ps3 had passed 3million...confusing indeed

There was a time during 2000 that the ps2 sold

"PS2 11/19/00 14,731
11/26/00 8,950
PS2 12/03/00 3,637 "

Now I wonder why that was...3,000? The rest of the time it's around 50,000...anybody able to explain?

ITR3768d ago

I'll support a VGCharts post.
They seem to be the most accurate and many big game sites quote their numbers.

XxZxX3768d ago

deep, PS2 cant keep up with demand during 00(supply problem), i recalled.

Firewire3768d ago

vg charts suck!
They cannot be trusted.

As I said before Sony better do something quick(I'm not talking about raising prices on the games like they just did on their PSN). At the rate they are going in less than 2 months they will be on the 3K units just like the 360. Games like final fantasy will need a large intallbase to get their return of investment.

I don't know if a price drop make sense since they are already getting the PS3 cheaper than anywhere else. They have to do something... I guess people werent as impressed about the blu-ray player as they were in europe.

MaximusPrime3768d ago

i dont care about the figure.

i'd rather wait 2 years before finally announcing who wins the console wars.

BTW: Microsoft is losing some exclusives to other consoles. Just wait and see.
