They will never get to read this. Follow the leader lemmings.

Super Paper Mario is a great game.

Blind Lemmings, THIS IS REALITY.

@3 C4: Bubble for you sir.

@4: IF THAT WERE THE CASE, Lemmings would have NOTHING to talk about. LMFAO.

@5: Geri curls went out in the 80s playa. let eric wright rip.

@2.2: in Japan maybe, check the numbers again for Europe..82% drop in PS3 sales in week 2! WEEK 2!

http://digital-lifestyles.i...

That means all the early adopters, eBayers, and Hardcore Lemmings, sales at launch.

@ 3.3: If you need proof, go to your local "GAME" store. Ask any associate salseman there.

@3.8 Deep(brownoser) That was week 1 lemming. That logic makes as much sense as having multiple accounts on a website, just so you can have more bubbles.

@2.3 Ever heard the saying..."You can't see the forest before the trees" that mantra fits you. All you see is the word "lemming" and ignore the essence of what I say.

p.s. have another alcoholic beverage lemming.

@33 Slugg: Bubble for you sir.

@34: Bubble for you sir.

@39: You also have an English problem, learn how to speak it, write it, and learn how to spell. Your not even worth a reply.

Firewire3803d ago

Dude, don't talk. The 360 only sold

500,000 more units than the 360 in a third of the
time!

The 360 is officialy dead in Japan & Asia not to mention Europe!

The PS3 is losing to XBOX 360 in the US/Europe, and the PS3 is losing to the Wii horribly in Japan. I called it, the PS3 will be the next 3D0.

ALso the 360 has sold 5.4 millions in the US and the WIi just passed that # world-wide. Sony at this rate you will never catch the XBOX 360 or the Wii or the PS2.

BubblesDAVERAGE3803d ago

The ps3 is not losing in europe nor america because combined the ps2 and ps3 sales and the psp sales kill the xbox brand...Now the fool will be played by you....Thats without any of there major titles droping when lair and sigma comes out u can run ya xbot mouth then till then stop being a fanboy and look at the facts.

C43803d ago (Edited 3803d ago )

The PS3 is not the PS2(the PS2 is actually successful) even though you can't really tell their games apart, and the PSP is a handheld. If you want to get technical Microsoft sold 20 million copies of Vista in March add that to the 360 sales, and the Playstation and Nintendo brand got KILLED!!! 360 will win this gen, it sells well world-wide except Japan and the PS3 is getting killed in Japan. Whether you like it or not the PS3 is getting outsold by the competition. LOL

After Sony's launch the 360 is consistently outselling it, you will see with Aprils #'s, go ahead and go buy some fanboy kleenex.

techie3803d ago

Show me the numbers that show that the ps3 is losing to the 360 in Europe?

masterg3803d ago

#C4

Get your facts straight... the PS3 is outselling the 360 in europe by a mile.

XxZxX3803d ago

hello C4,
where is your detonate button, cause you are on self-destruct.

Killer Cop3803d ago (Edited 3803d ago )

Duh, I'm tired of this site. Flaming flaming flaming, filled with Xbox creeps all over the place shouting; "PS3 DIES! XBOX RULEZ!" Blah blah blah... About 95% of everyone in here have no idea what they are talking about.

@C4

No PS3 will not be the next 3DO, simply because Sony is too big a company. And those japanese guys are always fricking out with Nintendo stuff. And besides, have you even tried a PS3? I think it's highly possible you havn't. And besides all this, there is a reason why Cell is being used with medical research and IBM make servers with it. But nooo, Halo pwns all. Right. Seriously, what does a MS fanboy do in this news post? It has nothing to do with Xbox 360 at all. Just asking.

THAMMER13803d ago (Edited 3803d ago )

Can you guys prove the PS3 is out selling the 360 in Europe? I mean come on do not start with the B.S. Keep it real go get proof.

DEEP that is not proof. That is just your word. It is worth nothing. Real hard proof is what I'm looking for.

techie3803d ago (Edited 3803d ago )

Indeed i can my boy.

The 360 sold in Europe in the year of 2006 a grand total of...1.9million.

The ps3 in the year of 2007 has sold in one month a grand total of...800,000

That good enough for you?

xfrgtr3803d ago (Edited 3803d ago )

Xbox 360 division revenue slumps 21 percent LOL!!!!!!

fanboys and geeks talk about sales, gamers talk about games...

nice_cuppa3803d ago

what you should have said was thats cool !
well done ninty !
i hope this leads to some nice new games for my wii and ds !
im enjoying my 360 and ps3 too so im happy for them !
i hope ps3 sales pick up as its a great system with some sweet games !

CaliGamer3803d ago

CyberSentinel's avatar looks like a partially aborted piece of S*@t. Hahahahaha. Always with the lemming chant bro, what's the deal. I have been coming to this site for about 3 mo and I have never seen you post without having lemmings in your message. Hope your not sniffing paint bro, I heard it can make you slow or retarded... but by the looks of the you and the crap that comes out your mouth I would say that it's probably too late.
Back on topic, it's Wii is cheap, I have an iPod shuffle just because its cool to work out with and it was only 78$, but when I get a chance I will get a video I pod for sure. Same with the Wii, you have parents with kids and such, and Wii is the best choice for them as far as getting a system for their kids that is fairly kid friendly, etc. PS3 is a bit pricier than the Wii, so it goes without saying that its more affordable to most. We are still very early in the PS3 life cycle, talk about sales in November and we will see how different things are.

nice_cuppa3803d ago

ninty is just really doing well at the moment !
will it last ?
who knows !

but to say that price and time in market are why ps3 aint selling is wrong !
ps3's price is good value as its a hd disc player too. so the price is high but not bad and im sure if the japanese consumers wanted ps3 they could aford it as japan has the cheapest ps3 price !

oh and wii came out at the same time as ps3 !

im sure ps3 will do better but nintendo is on fire in japan as they have delivered what the japanese market wanted !

dknight3803d ago (Edited 3803d ago )

Maybe thats why Nintendo has pushed all it's games back.

All the big ones hit in the months of Sept, Oct, and Nov.

It also might help X'mas sales too since moms and dads buy during that time frame.

PS3 launched on Nov 11th in Japan and the Wii came out on Dec 2nd in Japan.
