Media Create has published the latest hardware sales figures from Japan (official numbers).
40k PS3s!!! great numbers!
still going strong
Don't forget about the PSP, which also performed very well.
Again PS3 is doing better according to Media Create. Famitsu numbers below: PSP – 40,000 Nintendo DSi – 33,000 Playstation 3 – 33,000 Nintendo Wii – 23,000 PSP go – 6,600 Xbox 360 – 4,100 Nintendo DS Lite – 2,800 Thought Xbox 360, PSPgo and DSi number seem to be similar Playstation 2 – 2,500
Hmmm. That's why, for me at least, I take Famitsu numbers with a grain of salt. They are somewhat decent estimate though and it gives a slight indication as to how Media Create's data will turn out.
PS3 still all the way up there. These numbers are much better than Famitsu's estimation.
PS3 is STILL spanking that ass.
I guess the Japanese do not like being forced to watch ads...
Dear God, PS2 is the true beast here! Going up on it's tenth year soon and it's still selling a good 2,500-3000 a week!
Famitsu is praying the PS3 numbers are lower or something. They've been off from about 5-10k regularly lower.
@Cwalat That's true. The PS2 is the perfect system if you want to game for the cheap and dont care about HD. Also it's a very good gift for a nephew :D
Start writing PS3 doomed articles. :P
I can see it now. "PS3 outsells ever other next gen console - IT'S DOOMED!!!"
I am slightly surprised that the DSi sales didn't drop too much since the DSi XL came out in Japan this week. I wonder what the consumer reaction will be when it releases.
wow PS3 #1 in terms of console sales again in Japan, I think the wii is becoming less popular as we speak honestly
Perhaps, although there haven't really been any big releases lately. New Super Mario Bros. Wii comes out in Japan next month, though.
You realize that Final Fantasy XIII comes out next month? Both numbers would go up.
Yeah, but I never said that FFXIII wouldn't be a huge release for the PS3. I see both consoles going up in sales next month.
something the industry thought would never happen.
The PSP outsold the DS, and the PS3 outsold the Wii.
the tides have completely changed in the console wars as we know it
wait for FF13 in japan then you will see real numbers :D
Not only are they on the top of the charts right now, the ps3 is matching numbers with psp. Handhelds normally reign supreme over the consoles, but they are neck to neck.
Well, congrats 360 for beating the PS2. Wait,what? PS2 was last gen? Shame on you Microsoft
Glad to see PS3 pushing 33k out the doors. Hope to see higher numbers in the states where it directly effects us (and the UK too, I love the accents!)
Good numbers for Sony. The more they push out the more the word is going to spread among gamers and friend are going to be encouraged to pick up PS3's to join them. Will be interesting to see how November and December turn out.
tsk tsk ps2 you should be up top of that last gen console 360.
just overshadows the 360. 360 is nothing compared to what PS2 has done last gen.
The Xbox 360 is doing horrible in Japan, why doesn't Microsoft actually build up a first party presence in Japan? They have a great presence in America with studios, at least kinda after the closures of FASA, Ensemble, ACES, Digital Anvil, etc, plus Europe with Rare and Lionhead. Yet no one in Japan! The PS3 is doing great, Sony made a kick ass machine so it's good to see them getting the sales it deserves. Good to see the PSP back on top, I assume that includes all SKU's? If that's the case it's a bit strange given the DS's are separated.
They have Square Enix. I doubt MS can build something better than SE partnership.
..."Bye Bye PSP". Hahaha http://n4g.com/psp/News-431...
I think the internet will explode when FF13 comes out next month! If only I could speak Japanese!!!
