Here are this weeks hardware sales in the land of the rising sun
Ps3 and 360 are doing better but the wii is killing them right now.
I guess you could argue they are doing better. I'm interested in seeing how the sales change once some anticipated games start flowing out.
Besides the lack of games out for the PS3 i was suprised to see a sales increase. I do expect a slight increase for the 360 version since forza was just released.
Does anyone have game list for japan though, some games may have been released in Japan that we may not be aware of. Did some digging on wikipedia. NBA Homecourt was released May 24 for Japan, and June 7, June 14, they will see the release of Folkslore and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. If folkslore scores well it can be a potential seller if they do their commericals on prime anime time i think. hm they also listed bladestorm as a March release i thought the game was still in dev.
this is pretty recent http://n4g.com/NewsCom-4256... i believe thats what your asking for
Hmm i dont know, i guess the sales has nothing to do with software nothign on teh list was PS3. weird. new firmware update?? they want to play on 1080?? what else can it be?? whatevers haha.
Personally Im impressed with PS3 worldwide sales. The fact that it has sold almost the exact amount that the 360 had at this time it crazy when you think about the fact that it costs 1½ of the 360 and has half the games. Cant wait to see what happens in the fall when the games arive and maybe a price cut.
360 was hard to get hold of for a while, ps3 isnt
there won't be a price cut anytime soon. http://n4g.com/industrynews... maybe there will be one in response to a M$ price cut later this year. this just means that sony is still f**king up, or the console is too damn expensive to make for them to drop the price yet. i was impressed with ps3 sales this week since no games came out. looks like sony's loyal japanese customers saw that ps3 sales were dismal last week and rallied to the stores to boost sales--lol.
XBOX 360 dropped to 2k with forza 2 launched over there. WOW how low can they get for nextgen consoles. PS3 has a slight increase sales with no games.... The land of rising sun is pretty weird.
The wii is outselling Xbox 360 27:1 in Japan... Maybe Microsoft needs a better ad campaign over there?
