Media Create has published the latest hardware sales figures from Japan. See how the market responded to the release of Monster Hunter Tri.
wow thought the wii sales would be higher cuz of the bundle, oh and 360 is up this week
Wii – 95,357 DSi – 73,710 PSP – 33,049 DS Lite – 12,027 PS3 – 8,760 PS2 – 3,617 Xbox 360 – 3,552 I can't wait for the ps3 price drop.. hopefully sony advertises it.. it would be a shame for nobody to know about it..
yes it does need a price drop but even the japan market on the whole is sad, looks like its all in decline
Impressive boost to be honest. Now we need to see what kind of boost PS3 gets with a price cut + FF13. Also 360 got a little boost too it seems.
MH pushed the wii a lot. That's really impressive.
look at the wii!!. It would have been PS3 if Crapcom didn't switch it to wii.
360 in the last place---OK nothing to see here move on please.
PSP 33,049 PS3 8,760 PS2 3,617 sales go up if they price cut. cheap360 3,552 cheap360 is failed!!!
Wii – 95,357 DSi – 73,710 PSP – 33,049 DS Lite – 12,027 PS3 – 8,760 PS2 – 3,617 Xbox 360 – 3,552 For comparison’s sake, here are the numbers from the week of July 20th (last week). DSi – 80,362 PSP – 30,523 Wii – 23,995 DS Lite – 12,385 PS3 – 8,997 PS2 – 3,305 Xbox 360 – 3,080
That's an incredible boost for Wii.
Been curious all week what the affect of launching a black wii with MH3 would have on its sales.
If the PS3's price drops then say bye to the 360 in Japan, it wont stand a chance over there.
im not trying to be a fanboy but WOW. ps3 is $400 and a 360 is $200 and yet ps3 is out selling it 2 to 1. now we just need a price cut, gt5, uncharted, and a better ad. campaign in the united states.
MH is an amazing franchise. Nintendo got a good deal getting it exclusive to the Wii. MH is hugely popular in japan, and I personally can't wait for MH3. I'll finally be able to dust off my Wii. :)
Agreed 100% i dont like the game but it's influence is undeniable. simply amazing wow this makes a joke out off the playstation 3 and 360 console war
The 360 is just... sad.
I swear to God every person who lives in Japan owns about 3 Wii systems that thing just wont stop MH3 helped big time.
wait until Dragon Quest X is released. Wii should have about 10mil users or more by then in Japan. That is the only game I can see pushing bigger number of HW. FF XIII will be the other for the PS3. I still don't understand why the 360 version of FF XIII isn't being released in Japan along side the PS3 like SF4 and RE5. 3Mil Ps3 & 1Mil 360 = 4Mil HD users, hmm why isn't it...
Because if they want it in Japan they will buy a ps3. America and the rest of the world is understandable. Since there are so many 360 owners just not worth it in Japan. Im sure most people would buy it for ps3 in japan anyway. Im curious how big of a spike FFXIII will get for the ps3. Its the same thing with GT5 theres already been a demo released for those games. So Im sure a good part of the people who want those games picked a system up for them. Though Im sure there will be a spike when those games are released I just don't know how big. Im sure ps3 sales will go up with the impending price cut already.
But we know FF is a system seller, so regardless it would sell 360's also. what about those 1Mil 360 owners? I haven't really found any real reason to why there is no 360 version to the same game but Capcom released 2 mega games for both platforms.
Could be any number of reasons you are right though it would sell systems. They could have felt that vast majority would want it on the ps3 anyway. Though considering Id say most of that 1million own the 360 for the rpgs that came out it would more then likely be worth squares time. Could just be sticking with a company that has brought them so much success. Who knows sure theres some back door deals going on there.
I knew its sales were gonna be huge, but almost 100k is crazy. That is more then its sold in the last 4 weeks combined. Now we shall see how long this spike will continue.
People are assuming i hate a particular console let me clarify that i do not hate a console, i just love PS3 a bit more. Thats all.
lol ... I remember saying that the ms was happy with 1m of xbox3rl sold in Japan .. poor bots.
Yeah wow oh humm POS3 beats 360 by 3-4k units and it bye bye 360. Yet in major gaming markets like UK, USA POS3 gets treated like red headed step child in sales dept. NO i'm not a fanboy just stating the facts /sarc
snsjn s snjson
releases ps3 could go to 100k!!!
I don't see why the DSi is selling so well... I'm surprised the Wii did so well, I guess the PSP popularized that franchise in Japan. Still don't see why crapcom(I despise them for how little their word is worth and no other reason) only released MH3 on Wii. Wth happened to "this is year of the multiplatform" or "we will not do any more exclusives" that they claimed?
O well, thats how it is. Final fintasy is on the ps3/360 what more do u want. You cant have it all. They just go where the money is i guess. They saw the wii with the most user base and went with it. Simple. Im glad companys still do exclusives otherwise whats the point of three consoles?
