Look at the US numbers they gettin worse for the ps3. The 360 is hot on the ps3's heels nipping for that #4 spot in japan. lol

360 - is a write off in Japan.
PS3 - There is still hope for the PS3 but Sony need to do something fast.
Wii - Wow, just Wow

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the PS3 is as much as a write off in Japan as the 360. Selling 2 to 3k weekly or 8k doesn't matter that much when you see that Sony accounted for a lot more then that.

Like I've said before:

Japan - Wii
Rest of the world - Wii/360 short term, 360 leader long term (certainly after pricedrop core to 199 Euro this fall, premium 299 Euro, Elite 399)

... A massive change in the PS3's position (perhaps up to third above the PS2/PSP) once concrete detials and release information of Winning Eleven come to light.. The Japanese go crazy for that game! And I for one know lots of people in the UK waiting for PES7 before taking the plunge... Football is a massive seller in Europe and Japan...

Why o why3726d ago

its the world game and its gunna pull a lot of old gen owners to the newer machines
