An useful table with numbers for the all times high PS3 Europe launch week to the all times low week ending 06/03/2007.
accoureding to sony fanboys wasnt the ps3 suppose to be outselling the 360 in europe? just a question.
At first it probebly was.
Where do these figures come from, I dont really trust VG Charts. I wait for the official stats but even then Im not expecting enormous figures for the PS3, we are all waiting for a price drop and games.
Its far too early to say where things are going to go at the moment. Its only been 3 months since Euro release, so the figures will be distored right there- the Wii and XBOX have been out for alot longer. First those figures would need to be de-seasonalised and then compared with the first three months of XBOX/Wii launch to give a direct comparison.
how did this guy get so many bubbles? hes a total troll.
ha coming from you, im no fanatic to either system but when 2 or 1 bubble people like u say the stuff that i sed on the first post bugs me that they have no proof, heres proof
Now Now - Play nice ;)
puregamers your a worthless douche. wtf do you have to be compelled to removed bubbles from people you dont agree with. he wasn't even flaming. Every comment from you is worthless. End your life.
They are crazy!
the developers will not be able to adjust to the PS3 sales accordingly, giving the game community less good games because they believed too much in PS3, like Sony.
This could lead to another almost crash of the industry.
Honestly, It's the Developers fault, Now here me out before everyone disagrees.
Like No 3rd party developers are willing to risk making a game on a poor selling console. However, the console is poor selling because developers aren't making games for it. It's a never ending cycling, until First party developers release games like, Lair, Warhawk,etc....
I understand why 3rd partys don't want to risk making games for the ps3 only yet. They could lose alot of money. So PS3 is gonna have to wait till september when sony releases alot of games to pick up steam and end this cycle
It is all your fault for not buying it! I blame on you...sitting there waiting for good games...If you buy good games will come...
Kaneda got a point there. Developpers want to bring games to console with a large install base because it means more profit. If too few gamers buy the console, waiting for good games, what the incensitive to produce a game far that console, knowing you are most at risk of loosing money.
and in one year there's no more sony playstation ... lol. who cares? the system is only 2 months out here in germany. give it some time ....
Its costs £425 quid of course the sales are gonna drop. When the price drop then the sales will rise.
Whats gonna happen when the 360 price drops to match it and keeps it still $200 more?
MS will always have the price advantage due to it being out a year early. So if your looking for a price drop for it to surpase the 360 you will be waiting in vein.
"MS will always have the price advantage due to it being out a year early".....
yeah and not to mention usuing cheap quality parts in the 360.
The 360 is cheaper than the PS3 already so if people just wanted a cheaper system they would have bought a 360 which is cheaper and has a larger selection of games right now. Most people who want a PS3 are waiting for either more games, a price cut or both before buying.
another bs article from idiots.
achira you sir are the idiot.
I second that.
the ps3 sales will definitely never stop dropping...ever...by 2008 the figures will drop beyond zero, in which us consumers will start manufacturing them and selling them to Sony...
you must have stopped before reading the full comment. All sense of humor is lost on fanboys. sad
haha yeah...you can't get away with anything on here...this stuff is super serious, no time for jokes...
It badly needs more games. When Heavenly Sword, Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Lair come out you'll see an up in sales, I hope.
If those games get good scores I will probably buy a PS3. I have wanted one for a few months now for a cheap blu-ray player, so add in a few great games and I will be convinced.
Where I work we sale Ps3's daily. The system is closing on 4 mil, and the holidays are coming as well as the games. i wouldn't read to much into this. It's the summertime and consoles sales usually drop.
but if it was ,shouldn't the ohter systems drop as well? I'm not seeing that trend,but I do see that $600 for a game system with no games is too much for people other than those with more money than sence.
the more negative press gets thrown at it....hmmmmmmmm
Did I read "give it some time?" .. hehe, ok lets give PS3 some time. All shhhhs, time starts now!
yawn... *goes back to wait miracles*
Sony is shooting its own leg with PS3 unless they drop down the price now and actually get a lot more users --> better game sales --> more devs interested --->happy happy joy with PS3... but nah, Sony does not seems to care, they blindly believe people would actually buy it with that price, like games would not cost enough already.
Sony fanboys, I hate to say so,
But I told you this was going to happen even before the launch in EUrope. It was pretty clear, Europe isn't any different to Americans or the rest of the world. Europeans are no aliens acting completely different from everyone that thinks the PS3 is overpriced, has no real great games and most important: Sony overpromisses and underdelivers.
Yep, the launch in Europe of the PS3 was great. They sold many. To fanboys. Fanboys will buy at allmost any price. Just to have it. After that: drop and no normal soul will look into it.
Now we know. Levels of the PS3 fell to about half the 360's sold. Even further then I thought they would.
PS3 - 43,398 11.82%
360 - 88,366 24.07%
That makes 360 selling between 70 to 90k a week from the launch of PS3. AFter PS3 launch the sales are dropping by the week. Summer effect is bull Sony droids, otherwise the 360 wouldn't climb up last week
There you have it. 360 sells world wide at twice the speed. PS3 isn't catching up at all. My prediction was pretty right. My next one is: Wii wearout effect will take place in fall. We'll see a slow decline, although Christmas presents with Wii will do fine again. Next year Wii will drop further.
Total life time:
360 nr. 1
Wii nr. 2
PS3 nr. 3
you super posistive and negative at the same time.
How can you guys compare the success of the PS3 to a system that's been released a whole year prior. That's a huge head start, they have already released some of their better games. I know Sony will come out on top and why? Sony really hasn't had many major titles release so no one wants it and the alternative is to get a 360. Once PS3 releases it's big titles this September that will change. Also Halo3 will be the main reason PS3 wins because this game is so huge to 360 fans, that for at least 6 months it will overshadow any game released on the 360 and they won't sell. After Halo people have already seen the 360's best. Where do you turn to then, the PS3 who by then their games will be untouchable as far as graphics and such(look at heavenly sword, and lair)
You are basically sayin that the Wii ans the PS3 will perform poorly and the 360 will essentially, pwn all.
You are forgetting that the Wii has sold an incredible amount in such a short time - and IMO, I just don't see it tailing off anytime soon.
Now, what if MS obvioulsy poor hardware performance gets them sufficiently poor press that the sales start to drop?
What I am basically saying is, that you have no clue what is going to happen in the future, sure, you have a MS branded crystal ball there, but you can't tell what the public is going to do over the next few years.
NONE OF US DO.
Here let me give you this complimentary towel.
PS3 sales WILL PICK UP!
360's WILL BREAK DOWN!
People like Mart will blindly follow figures given on any website.. With a 'If its posted on a forum then it must be true'. This kind of biased blindness is echoed throughout every one of his posts.
Only believe figures from respected unbiased and official sources. Only then are they open for discussion.
The ability to question sources and dig deeper is what deserves the respect.
"Also Halo3 will be the main reason PS3 wins because this game is so huge to 360 fans, that for at least 6 months it will overshadow any game released on the 360 and they won't sell."
Lol no it won't, and 6 months are you insane?...GTA IV, Too Human, Blue Dragon, PGR4, Unreal Tournament and Assassins Creed will sell just fine buddy...look at the sales of Lost Planet...and it came out AFTER Gears Of War. Combined they sold something like what 4-5 million...the attach ratio is high for the 360 because the gamers are usually older. Older folks have money, they buy more games. Nice try though...Halo will sell and so will everything else...apparently we can't own any other game for 6 months? And @Mart good comment man...you believe than say it, I don't necessarily agree with you on all counts but I love watch you ruffling everyone's feathers over a simple idea of yours.
PS3 opens to huge launches followed by sales that are well below expectation. It's not about being overpriced, it's about the price just being too high. That and the fact that it's current game catalog does not compare well to the 360 (don't get me started on the wii). MS's strategy of getting out the 360 ahead of the curve to gain gaming momentum appears to be paying off.
31 - Trust me buy one.
I had an X360 since the release date. I waited till about 3 months ago to get a PS3. I played Resistance and it's pretty amazing. If you have the TV for it purchase BR movies until games come out. I know people say they don't want to play movies in their video games consoles but that is what it's built for man and trust me the movies are great. Apacolyto,Casino Royale, Departed are worth it. IF you got a PSP remote play basically turns your psp into a mini ps3. The PS3 is becoming hot man. I am sure naysayers will flood me with disagrees and that is cool. Don't buy it if you don't want it I'm giving my opinion so don't be a pain in my ars.
Didn't you post this somewhere else or earlier in this thread?
The thread about JPN sales. Since both topics are so closely related I posted there also.
GT5 and FF13 will change those.
say what you must, but be prepared to eat your words.
Just like motorstorm was suppose to bring the ps3 sales to wii level ?
Motorstorm is freaking awesome!
Kaneda : I never said its not. I'm just saying fanboy keep saying "wait till [insert something to come]" and Sony will [insert miracle here].
They said it for europa launch, for motorstorm, for the firmware updates.. (They = fanboy, not ps3 fans)
All these things did help the ps3, but you don't see a console shortage, or even a tie with wii/360 sales. Expect realistic progress instead of a miracle.
Some fanboy sound just like Cheney when is said the Iraq war would last 6 days, maybe 6 weeks.
I hate to rain on your parade but theres no way MGS4 & FF are going to totally turn around this console. You need a super-mega blockbuster AAA godly title. Sony doesnt have one. M$ does, its called Halo. Come September PS3 will be in its death throws.
EDIT @ Below: F**k off fanboy. I was making a realistic comment and you tried to bash me for it. Your pathetic.

"hate to rain on your parade but theres no way MGS4 & FF are going to totally turn around this console. You need a super-mega blockbuster AAA godly title. Sony doesnt have one. M$ does, its called Halo. Come September PS3 will be in its death throws."
TO think that two widely acclaimed titles with huge followings wont turn around a console due to your biased fanboy devotion and to say that halo 3, an overrated hardly improven fps will put the ps3 to death is biased, fanboy and damn dumb, but hey. Fanboys do and say some crazy ass things nowadays. you're no exception.
MSG and FF not AAA titles. what have you been smoking man?
Look, each system will have thier own AAA games and they will help push hardware sales.
HALO will sell a ton, but I dunno how many consoles it will shift. MSG and FF will sell loads, but again we are only speculating what is going to happen - who knows really eh?
FF will help japan sell...and MGS will help WW sell...And, they are both AAA titles...That Xbox 360 gamers want for their system...
hey the PS3 could still win they just need....
If Sony could get Blizzard to make a next gen version of SC: Ghost, WoW and SC2 then Sony would have 3 unstoppable forces
i'll get a link for you but, blizzard was actually considering bring wow excluvley to 360 and pc sometime in 08
i love WoW been playing it since day one, if they got this to the 360 then they would have a massive crowd they could get in.
there are only so many fanboys to go around. once sony runs out... no one else will be willing to pay $600 for a system that has no games and doesnt push any better graphics than its $200 cheaper competitor. only fools... sorry fanboys would buy such a thing... and sadly for sony most of them already have... now the sales will do nothing but drop.
I have a 360 and Wii and plan on buying a PS3 very soon, I have all the platforms so I can have access to all the games, I am no fanboy. I just like to have the option of buying every good game that is released, regardless of the platform.
Package every PS3 with a brand spanking new.....
It's very simple folks. You can't have a number below zero. Once they hit zero this whole thing will be over. Or before that actually.
See the thing is the PS3 sales will start rising because its going to get pitty sales. Like right now I feel so bad i may buy one just so Sony will look better.
Its kinda like when a girl gives pitty sex to some loser at a party.
but sex doesn't cost 600 dollars if you are the one feeling sorry for someone. Now if you are the loser wanting the sex, then it will cost some money.
So maybe sony should pay people to buy there consoles....(joke)
but looks like reality will soon sink in for PS3 fans and I'm sure it will slowly sink in for Square.
Whoever accepted this just did this as pure flamebait. I'm amazed what becomes news on this forums these days. A forum is now evidence of sales number, and a site that makes baseless predictions is evidence of sales numbers as well. This shouldn't even be an article.
I saw this on a vgchartz forum and thought it was kind of funny.
Example A: Sony Fanboy comeback: Lacking any concrete evidence to refute the gravity of the presented claim, the Sony Fanboy falls back on evasive counter attacks adressing silly and often times irrelevant matters. Most prevalent is attacking the original poster's character and integrity rather than adressing the issues presented in the topic.
Example B: Sony Fanboy Defense Mechanism 8.1: When confronted with their system's failing sales Sony Fanboys will fallback on any number of excuses or justifications after the fact.
Defense Mechanism 8.1 is the excuse that it is still early in the race (or more specifically, still within the first year) and its too soon to tell whether Sony is doing badly or not.
Prior to 8.1 was Defense Mechanism 8.0: The excuse that the PS3 hadn't launched in Europe yet and was too early to write off its low sales figures. However, when the Ps3 did launch in Europe and things still didn't change much, Sony Fanboys began making more generalized open ended claims of it being too early in the generation to tell.
This progression can be expected to continue in the forms of: Defense Mechanism 8.2: The PS3 hasn't even been out two years yet, give it some time.
Defense Mechanism 8.3: The PS3 hasn't even been out three years yet, give it some time. and so forth and so forth.
Example C: Sony Fanboy Defense Mechanism 9.0: When confronted with their system's failing sales Sony Fanboys will fallback on any number of excuses or justifications after the fact.
Defense Mechanism 9.0 is the excuse that Sony's big name titles haven't even come out yet so its not fair to count its sales as being accurate yet. This is excuse is constantly revised after "system seller" after "system seller" is released and very few extra PS3's are moved as a result there of.
Example D: Sony Fanboy Victimization Rational: When overwhelmed in a thead or discussion where they are on the losing end of the battle, the Sony Fanboy will typically single out the most outspoken or active member of the opposing argument for attack. Pretending no one else in the thread (or forum as a whole) agrees with that one person and that they alone are the only troublemaker, the Sony Fanboy tries desperately to put the weight of the whole argument on that one person's shoulders in an attempt to compensate for the overwhelming majority of people against them in the discussion.
lol, good humor. The only one needed to be added is defense mechanic 10.0 (personal attacks to 360 users. This is when they refer to a user of the xbox 360 as an xbot (growing trend that loss its humor a minute after it was invented) and they will attack the failure rate of the 360 and make a towel joke. Even though the majority of 360 users, like myself, have never experienced 360 problems.
It is a forum topic that is using baseless predictions from vgcharts.org. This is hardly news.
I hate to laugh but I had too...that was too funny because I have seen every single one of those excuses and if you look up a lil friend of ours names "themart" I believe got attacked pretty nicely lol...this is funny for me though because I own a PS3 and it's just funny to watch people who only own one fight
with a strong PS3, developers will dedicate more to games in HD and more physics. If Wii have a installed base of 30 million, Xbox 360 15 and PS3 8 million, wait for a avalanche of games that do not use the power of both HD consoles. The focus will be Wii, almost only.
FlopStation welcom3 chang3. Wait b3yond.
Halo 3 anyone? :P
What is 'an useful table'? I have seen a useful table, but not an useful table. Anyone? Sorry, being an ass.
I don't own a PS3, but will eventually get one. I am just waiting to see what games will be coming out for the system. I am a pretty casual gamer, so will wait until there is enough reason for me to buy.
after 1 year everything will change. :)
That is basically what I was trying to say as well. I certainly have interest in the PS3 as I have a PS2 and have always enjoyed Playstation games. I consider myself a pretty casual gamer, however, so from my perspective I just want to see what games will be coming out before I make my purchase.
I have a Wii, but even that has not seen much play lately. I still love Wii Sports Tennis, but I have played through all the other games I have at the moment. I think both the Wii and the PS3 just need more time to build a library of games. For the price, I am definitely waiting until I buy my PS3.
