Media Create has published the latest hardware sales figures from Japan (official numbers), which includes the launch of the PSPgo.
PS3 – 36,061 Xbox 360 – 6,047 BAM! There it is!
BUT ..BUT ..BUT JAPAN DOSENT MATTER
Fun facts from Media Create During the two months of September and October 2009, here's how the three consoles sold in Japan: PS3 - 462,845 Wii - 218,457 360 - 45,963
I'm not surprised at all that the DSi went down this week. The DSi LL (XL) is on the way, after all. And I believe the PSPgo data is from one day of sales. So that's not too bad at all.
Sony still ruling supreme.
DSi – 37,517 PS3 – 36,061 PSP – 34,911 PSP go – 29,109 Wii – 28,888 DS Lite – 6,902 Xbox 360 – 6,047 PS2 – 1,966 Kudos to MS on destroying the PS2 this week.
"MS not out for the count yet"
lmao @greywulf, i would literally rotflmao if kotaku did run a story with that kind of a headline but in all honesty, why did it go up close to 2k units...did ms release a new game or something? EDIT: it also seems as tho famitsu underestimated xbox sales
great figures for the PS3 ... sales have remained consistent since the price cut .... Sony will have a great holiday seasons this year , PSP sales are pretty good also... seems 360 got a little boost also ... PS2 still chugging along
The Xbox had a price cut to the Elite Sku, I believe.
MS must have had a big boost in sales there... They are killing the PS2! /sarcasm
Mass Effect on steam is $10 for the weekend. Buy it if you havent on PC.
If a 360 has a price cut in Japan and nobody buys it, is it still a price cut?
You Guys are Awesome, make me lol so hard Kotaku: -Come on, Come on, reload the page, I need to make an article, "in Japan xbox outsold..." no damn is too ridiculous, I have to post the truth this time, but I'll have my chance to spin the truth....Muahahha!!! muahahahaha!!!
PS3 FIRST IN THE HOME CONSOLES (again)
And PSP first in handhelds :)
It surprises me that PS3 still remains the Top selling console even when the Wii got a price cut and Monster Hunter 3,the PS3 still manages to remain on top. I'm guessing the Wii fad is coming to an end.
true, but you also have to think to yourself, how many units have nintendo wii sold now compared to ps3...id think that the formerly "only-wii" owners are now buying the ps3 because of the price drop, but not as many families/poeple left without a wii not trying to make it a spin, im just amazed that the wii i sstill selling as much as it is given how many have already been sold there
when NPD figures are out?
Usually around the middle of the month, next Thursday maybe?
"im just amazed that the wii i sstill selling as much as it is given how many have already been sold there" Isn't that because of the price cut? wii is a family product, so there is no doubt it sell, now is the chance of the gamers and gaming newcomers who got a wii and now go for the PS3
yea, what im saying is the wii has been selling like that from teh get go while the ps3 hasnt been doing too good because of its former price, but now since there is a price cut for the ps3 it too has been selling like hot cakes, but the wii is still there along side it...apart from the surge of the first couple of weeks, i honestly thought the ps3 would be selling close to 50k+ every week to catch up to the wii's total sales in japan cause there are still so many potential ps3 owner from how many have bought the wii anyways...its good that the ps3 is now getting into the homes of many japan families, id get one as soon as the make some kind of 360/ps3 controller converter
360 fans...don't look. :)
you saying to sales-whorez outselling the PS2 in Japan isn't something to motivate them for the comming week of their lives? You're crazy man, just crazy.
I'm confused XP
X360 outsold the PS2 3:1 in Japan!!.
too busy putting the 360 in best console of all-time lists and writing how Sony can save [insert whatever Sony product here].
Nice sales all around.
Failbox in last.
WOW 360 outsold PS3 1:6 LOLOLOLOL
its ps3 outsold xbox 6:1...you cant OUTSELL when you have lower units, even though your ratio was correct, the phrase that came before it wasnt
It's PS2 my friend.... PS3 outsold the 360 6:1. At this rate, PS3 wins nearly 100K consoles per month.. When FF13 lands, expect that to reach 500K...
He was making a joke...relax.
fangirls? of what 360 or ps3? either way, as far as im concerned, i wasnt trying to defend either one...i dont even own a ps3, i was just attacking what he wrote and how it was incorrect
What Do You Know PS3 Wins, Nothing New Move on.
Very nice to see that PS3 sales are consistently hovering around 30K+ a week for this long... only a little over a month before the FFXIII PS3 Explosion Begins! :)
It's going to be a crazy time in Japan when it launches.
from the dead. /Akio
PS3 outsold the 360, as usual.
Japanese people are smart, so it's obvious that the PS3 is the best choice. With the variety of game selections that 360 cannot match, and its un-faulty hardware, what idiot would choose the 360 over the beastly PS3?
DEAD in Japan DEAD in Europe DYING in U.S.of.A... ;-D
360 >>>>>> PS2!!!! SALEZ SALEZ.....oh wait why do I care?
next month ps3 FFXIII japanese release=skyrocket ps3 sales and then after holydays -> 2010 the fall of the xbox360.
Bu bu but Natal will save it!
Good to see the ps3 sales tanking the fad is over.
