PS3 finally breaks the 5 digit barrier once again!
wow 360 was at 7k now its back to 3k
hope it will go up.
wii at 75 thats dawm good
i wonder why do japan like nitendo soo much:(
Edit: why do some people Disagrees with my post wat did i say wrong..
the only time when it went to 7k the 360 is when enternal sonata was released..the ps3 been break 5gs they will be sellin at least 8k and they finally passed it and made it to almost 12k..which is still good..lol.with no games..
umm i have to disagree about the no games thing. Remember that NGS recently was released in Japan as well, that has to be taken into account. Either way its nice to see some good news comming out for Sony. Now if E3 would just come already;)
Edit: WOW wats with the disagree i wasnt attacking anyone. Just stating my opinion.
WII outselling PS3 in japan almost 7:1, REMEMMBER IT WAS 4:1 , 5:1 , 6 :1 AND NOW ONLY 2k short of 7:1
This site is full of Ps3 fanbois so since you were hoping for sales of 360 to pick up you get the disagrees.. These type of comments dont get digested by these 12yr olds.
this site is flooded with extreme xbox fankids. i mean all you have to say is i hope the ps3 sells more in the US and by the time you refresh your page after posting your commenting you are one bubble short.. dont try to be one sided about anything just because you love your 360, no one is killing you if you do.
Stop littering multiple sections with PS3 news. Geez.
Umm i tot it would be obvious.....The Japanese hardware sles chart. Not the Ps3 sales chart. They are all posted.
having a temper tantrum.
yea kt you do see that those are numbers of all consoles not just PS3. PS3 is the focal point due to the fact that it broke 10k again.
But still this news artical has something to do with PS3, 360, Wii, DS and PSP.
What time period does this cover?
Because the Vcharts show the 360 just under 3k and the PS3 under 10k. (covers last week of June)
The last time I saw the PS3 hit over 10k was when Sigma got released in mid-June.
Its last week
VGchartz can't beat M-create. VGChartz always an unofficial numbers of M-create sometime a bit off and they have to readjust.
the next generation war is now over ! lol
Seriously, we should be concerned with the North American and/or European markets.
Nowadays, the US, NOT Japan, is the biggest gaming market in the world.
and most of us live in North America or Europe anyway.
you control japan, you get the japanese influenced games here. just because were the biggest market doesnt mean a thing, what if the xbox 360 goes down to 0 sales??? no games for the 360 then
MS admitted themselves when the 360 launched that if the 360 doesn't penetrate the Japanese market then they won't win. The japanese market has the ability to hold 35 million consoles or more based on last generation. Ignoring japan is like ignoring 20-25% of the game market.
i didn't realize game companies like EA, Ubisoft, LucasArts, Bioware, and Bethesda would stop making games for 360 (or PC) because of those Japanese.
Microsoft does not have to capture Japanese market to thrive, but it'd be nice to take that market as well. (i.e., like adding icing to the cake.) The Japanese market is smaller than American. So, if Nintendo and Sony could survive without the American market, then Microsoft could also survive without the Japanese market.
You Japanophiles are giving Japan too much credit.
In fact, Sony should be more worried about capturing the North American market than Microsoft should about the Japanese market.
you dont get it do you, ever played mario, you know the italian Plumer???, its was made in japan, its sold like crazy in japan, did it followed the trend here in the US, yes it did, how bout halo, its sold like crazy in the US, how bout in Japan??? tell me one good western title that sold like crazy in Japan, and dont tell me halo, cause it didnt. Thats why microsoft tries to pay for exclusivity on Japanese based games. you capture japan, you capture the world. that why you hear analysts stating that both consoles will be leveled on the same ground next year, if japan is so small, then why do systems like the PS3 and the 360 is not selling like crazy while the DS is selling about 160,000 systems a week, calculate that in a year. its still the most important market.
LOL Wow justt to let u know i detect a hint of Racism, Just a bit. Japan is a very important market for videogames. I mean if arcades are still popular as hell over there they must love their videogames. lol
Dude most relevant game developers happen to be Japanese studios. The performance of each console dictates whether they'll develop certain games for these consoles or not.
yea for ps3, breaking 10 k, i mean that really is good since there is no games out for it yet besides resistance thats really good and is an exclusive. Plus it being alot more expensive than the competitors, so if its selling this well without games, cant wait til this fall to see the numbers
the prices of ps3 and 360 in japan are about the same.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma was recently released in the US, and released very recently in Japan as well. You could easily say it's the best next-gen action game seen so far on either system. I wouldn't be surprised if this game contributed to the extra systems being moved.
The reason why PS3 sold 12,000 in a week is because of Ninja Gaiden and Folksoul. THe only thing it needs is price drop. The software is there. VF5, Folksoul, NinjaGaiden, and Hot Shots Golf.
software is all we need now.
Good Job Sony...BUT What you guys dont understand is that nintendo and sony will always have a place in japan because they are japanese products...i dont even know why MS are still trying to sell over in japan... it will never happen.. it an american made product... u dont see japanese driving fords or chevys do u????....hell no... all u see is honda, hyundais...etc...
they drive European cars, because it's "QUALITY", they don't want to use/buy something that breaks down in a short period of time.
please don't start an ethnic war, system wars is bad enough.
First hyundai is korean not japanese!!
Second, Like ngoniko said you dont see them driving American car but you see them driving european car. Face it, Free Of Repair Daily don't get it's name over nothing. consumer just want realibility. At least American car company now smart enough not to sacrifice realibility over price. They learnt their lesson, Bill gates the person that use car analogy on the other handsjust fell into same mistake that GM and Ford made like decades ago.
Third, I see them eat Macdonald, drink coke, bought Ipod, use Intel/AMD/IBM processor and Microsoft Windows XP. Aren't those American as well. Can't make a market peneration and raise the race card?
the break down is NA 45% of the market, Europe 25% Japan 17% and the rest of the world makes up the rest
took over the American company ford a while back. man how i love the japanese. i dream of going to tokyo. actually my friend was talking bout saving up 2 go b4 going to college. ok im talking 2 much now.
and it's funny to think that most of it (the fascination) started when I began playing GAMES on the 'ol NES....(and I used to watch a sh*tload of karate movies that also helped.) =]
wow definetly didnt see that coming 11 grand. lol Sony must have done some killer advertising or ninja gaiden and folklore are still playing their part in console movement. Either way good job sony. Heres to hoping you never drop down again. And a price cut my help increase your sales too.
They're still getting clobbered by the Wii, almost 7-to-1...
well theres E3 as well, if they announce Ips that we havent even heard of yet that are japanese influenced, then it will increse in sales in japan the following week,
well unsunghero i rarely classify wii as a true next gen console. 1 its got half the price and less than half the capabilities
It's selling a lot, lot more than the PS3.
Say what you want, but you can't deny that no matter what your opinions are, Sony is really getting hammered so far.
PS3 wil sell more after E3.
EDIT: hey yo! unsunghero28
360 is getting clobbered by the WII as well, and soon by the ps3
like it or not
1) This is JAPAN we're talking about. For whatever reason, to those guys a 360 might as well be an N64...
2) Let's cross our fingers that Sony doesn't make themselves look like idiots again. Woo, watching the Sony E3 '06 conference was like watching a goat getting its head chopped off and its intestines eaten for 2 hours.
(Incidentally, the goat thing would later come true...)
not if MS announces at E3 that MGS is coming to 360 also.
MGS4 might come to the 360. maybe.
but that does not for one second mean its over for Sony.
It won`t be good, but its not the end.
personally, i think alot is riding on how "good" halo3 actually looks.
cause KZ is all speculation at this point, but the BETA for halo3 "graphically" wasn`t anything groundbreaking.
Imagine this IF KZ does somewhat match the trailer and adds a SOLID SOLID online functionality and Halo3 shows up looking a "bit" better than the BETA. not good.
I don`t think is for sure how it will go down, but the pieces are inplace for it to.
w/ KZ demo`ing their engine one week later after a massive presentation and playable demo at e3.
Bungie better have a VERY VERY good looking game at e3.
MGS4 coming to the 360 won`t matter if what i said is the reality.
not only are all the great games that ruin anything the xbox360 has or coming out(pretty sad - 2nd year and being ruined by PS3 in the first year) but u have to look at it this way...
alot of ppl during launch were in school and had expensives etc...now its summer time - meaning summer jobs and them working..so come sept - christmas guess who will have enough money to buy a PS3 and if they do drop the price - which i think they wont...it would be over
that and FolkLore/FolksSoul.
is Everybodys Golf 5 out there yet?
I've lost a bubble. i didn't say anything bad or wrong.
I've lost a bubble, how? F!@#, this site is fulla bugs that are fanboys that can't hear nothing bad about their system of choice or their favorite games, it's sad how some people love their games more than their girlfriends, i think they like to F!@@# a ps3 or a 360 before f!@# a sexy a@@ mamma, they choose a videogame than a sexy P@#. THIS SITE IS A JOKE. DAMN.
my summer vacation 3, and hot shot golf 5. You should see the ps3 sales increase to 30k for the next two games. Also these gamse should sell 100,000 to 200,000 games first week at least.
It's only gonna get better. Good job Sony.
What did u really expect everyone to agree with you? ive been on three bubbles 4 the longest .people dont understand that the bubble system is 4 giving someone negative feedback for low quality post, offensive post, and spam. they forget all about the disagree/agree system that has been set up. taking peoples bubble because they make a post like this. "i cant wait 2 play killzone" . its a flawed system im limited 2 three post a story.
I'm gonna laugh my head off when they're back down to 7,000 next week. Maybe they shot up because of a couple of good games. Well if it shoots up a lot in the Fall, so will the Wii's numbers. There are descent exclusives on both sides. Sony may never catch up. That phrase is so true: it's all about the games. True yesterday, true tod--- nevermind, that's corny.
has a 360 and a wii... i asked her if she has a ps3 and she replied in the negatory.i asked her why she has no ps3 and she said that there was nothing worth playing in the ps3. if you want to ask her yourself, pm me and i'll give you her gamertag
two games coming out next week, and 3 weeks after. My summer vacation 3, and hot shot golf 5. Both games will sell 200,000 + first week.
Getting back to Reality
@ 11.4 / Right unsunghero
but what you're failing to understand is that you're "hammered" comment can be summed up in this fashion: it's like a kitty kat biting a Bengal Tiger on the ankle. It's annoying and a little painful, and the kitty is really digging in deep with it's little kitty teeth - hard! But sooner or later the big Bengal will just fling the kitty to the side and run away, leaving the kitty so that it can devour much larger prey.
I think most logical and honest people understand what I'm saying quite clearly.
Overall good job for the Japanese companies (in Japan). Nintendo has captured the female and elderly camps and the non - gamers worldwide. As far as traditional gameplay I could really never settle in with the whole stand - up - and -lets - Wii -mote thing so I might settle for one down the road (and I admit they're some fun at partys), but right now I'm focused on Hi-Def nex-generation games (sitting down and relaxing) and good 'ol PS2 games. (I have a friend that HATES gaming, but was convinced to play wii bowling and loves it. Only thing on earth he can possibly play).
I can sense an old school gaming revolution on the horizon. Old school traditions / old school origins. Ya know, the latest verve. I just don't see the Wii outdoing the 360 and the PS3 on any level except sales; but nevertheless people are buying it I believe partly of that old school appeal that Nintendo has (&SNE) as it's been around for a long time. But, I like others ponder when the Wii sales will peak. 120 million is a lofty goal to reach. The PS2 did it with a variety of gamers traditional gamers and hardly any of the gamers that the Wii has targeted, plus the PS2 enjoyed heavy 3rd party support back in the day. Can the Wii continue all the way beyond the PS2 and be the all time console KING? You make the call.
I guess you could look at it like that.
Except (right now) I'd say it's more like the kitty kat is ripping the bengal's limbs off and all of the other jungle animals, stunned that the big bad bengal has been knocked down, are throwing rocks at the bengal as it sits stunned that its power over the animals has been destroyed.
No, but seriously, you throw the Wii to the side too quickly. I don't think it's a fad; now it's a pretty big part of American pop culture. Nintendo did the one thing that no console maker has ever dared to do- something completely different- without turning up the graphics. And they might just have the most successful console ever made because MS and Sony didn't open up to the casual market in time.
But you're right, we don't know for sure.
Xflop360. now that 2.5 million are proven to be defective, it's down hill for MS from here on.
what you expect after games like rb6vegas, darkness, sigma and loads more came out. only a matter of time till they... you know take over mwahahaha *coughs* lol wooo a bit hype there.
