Here is last weeks top 50 software sales in Japan. Usual suspects - DS, Wii, PS2, PSP...and the 360, but the PS3 fails to show up.
Note this is top 50 previous reprt was top 10 and without numbers.
The only thing I note is that the PS3 is totally absent.
As Bladestar says: the PS3 is as dead as the 360 in Japan. And I've said it before what will happen after the fanboys bought the BluRay player and the hype about the Wii with less content dies in the rest of the world:
Wii - Japan
360 - rest of the world
i know you retard...I put that in the description...duh
No PS3 game at all?
360 had 2.
List was mostly DS and Wii games.
simply wow... i never thought, at this point, that there would be w 360 titles on the charts but no ps3s... maybe the japanese are losing loyalty to their own brand for some reason... or have there just not been any decent ps3 releases in a while? (not trying to bash, i just honestly don't know)... something has to be up for this to be happening.
there is just no way possible for a ps3 game not to make a list that the 360 is making in japan. sorry it's just plain common sense, look at console sales, it's just a fake list.
just remember that with all of those sales, most of them will use the PS3 for the BluRay player as its cheaper.
We'll see another 4 of these posts by Sunday lol. I don't belive any of this stuff.
I dont see any point of buying PS3 games now...since there are still new PS2 games coming out...heck I going to buy 2 PS2 games this month....hack GU2 and Odin Sphere..
These are the real sales numbers, guys. Weekly sales only.
What do we find?
Any PS3 games in the top 50?
At #34 we have Golf 5 for PS3.
#119 we have My Summer Vacation 3 (PS3)
#186 we have Professional Baseball Spirits 4 (PS3)
#208 we have NINJA GAIDEN Sigma (PS3)
Amazon JP's top 50, 360 games.
Test Drive unlimited #15
Trusty Bell #26
Stop the denial. Japan is all DS/Wii/and PS2.
The even more suprising thing is that 360 games sold equals 17K, and for the PS3 it's 11K
VG charts also has the Wii at 6.66m sold now
Mark of the Beast!!!! wwwoooo
All, we're getting is a micro-dissection of an obvious trend. The PS3 hasn't released any big games in Japan right now (or in NA either) so it's no surprise that they're not moving titles. It would be pretty stupid to argue that Xbox doesn't have the shear weight-of-titles advantage right now. We'll have to see how things go once Sony starts throwing out some bigger titles over the course of the summer.
I don't think Sony's in a great position at the moment, but it's a bit naive to assume that these early numbers (Wii included) mean all that much.
seems like the ps3's main focus is a 'inexpensive' bluray player in japan as well.
I keep saying it, and it does not matter how many bubbles you fanboys take away from me. Japan belongs to the wii. Personally I dislike the wii. But the truth is the thruth. PS3 is japan is as dead as the 360.
Seems like even in Japan, quite a rich continent - Costs does matter a lot. Next is portability...
Everybody knows that PS3 does not have a single good game atm. Some ok games maybe, but GOOD.. none.. zero! So no wonder there is none on top 50 list. Soon there will be though. If I have to give one tittle that will sell in Japan it will be Little Big Planet.
