The last week sales comparison has been fixed now.

A nice bump for the Wii but not remotely close to the 151k Sony got with the PS3 price drop.

Nintendo has to be realizing the Wii is rapidly losing momentum.

So the Wii's price drop really didn't do too much. But seeing as there's like 8 million Wii's in Japan already, everyone probably already has one.

people here are actually downplaying the wii's price cut?

dudes, the ps3 was selling sub-10k in japan before the slim. i understand you are all ecstatic about its phenomenal sales, but sheesh tone it down.

the ps3 slim is a re-launch of the playstation 3 brand name. combined with high caliber software releases, its not wonder its doing well and will do so for the rest of the year. but to compared it to wii, who hasn't had, nor needed, much advertisement nor radical image changes, the slight bump isn't that strange.

"am i reading things right?

I don't think anybody's downplaying it. But come on, the Wii used to sell 60k+ alone back when it was still the hot new thing.

But after a price drop, you would think they should be selling more than 35k.

Wonder how NSMB will do for hardware.

zeeshan3293d ago

Yeah but the good news is that Xbox360 is outselling PS2 by 2k!!

/sarcasm :)

gaffyh3293d ago

So Famitsu was more accurate this time, they reported 37k for PS3. Still I expected more of a drop due to the Wii price cut. I think the Wii hype is dying now, everyone who wanted one has already bought one if the price cut only boosted sales to 35k. Even PS3 went higher than that when it got a high profile game even with it's high price.

Wait and see what happens December 17.

The Wii/PSP estimates reported by Ascii Media Works weren't too far off, apparently.

Congrats to the failbox for outselling the PS2. :P

@Saaking: Who the hell bubble raped you?

Saaking3293d ago

What's sad is, at the rate it's going, the 360 will be 99 bucks just like the PS2. Well, they are both last gen systems.

morganfell3293d ago

Ahhhhhh! Saaking, my beer just came out of my nose! Ha ha , funny as hell.

Snake Raiser3293d ago

This is great for PS3! It actually managed to outsell the wii on the week of the wii's price cut. The wii will most likely see a sales drop next week. (the price cut will not have as big of an effect). So the PS3 has held of a wii price cut and a 360 price cut in Japan. Nice timing sony. Maybe you can pull your #%@! together after all.

NecrumSlavery3293d ago

It's always around 4K. I wonder if it's just the same guys. Buying a new 360 every week since the previous ones red ringed.

Saaking3293d ago

Looks like the PS3 is gonna stay at around 50k for the next few weeks until another increase when FFXIII comes. So far it's selling 200k a month which is the same the 360 sells in NA. Considering they sell the same in Europe you could say:

360= 200k (NA) + 15k (Jap)= 215k

PS3= 200k (NA) + 200k (Jap)= 400k

I thought Japan didn't matter? Spin that bots.
