haha so much for the prediction that xbox would sell 4000-5000 this week and the ps3 would sell 10,000. I honestly wish i could find it, think it was from G4 or something. July is officially sony month, sony's been owning yo.
x360 is the worst selling console in JAPAN and EU.
plus it has caused MS 1.89 billion dollars in losses already.
quit gaming biz
But sales in Japan are very predictable. Wii and DS pretty much ruling the roost.
they should be. but hey Nintendo pulled a fast one. Am not a sony fan boy but i must admit i do enjoy my playstation products. I still strongly believe the wii is a fad in a year or two when devs get up to speed with ps technology people will ultimately go for graphics. Sure the wii is selling like crack but IMO they are targetting the casual market hard while sony is targetting hardcore. Now sony and msoft are going after casual gamers as well just not to get left behind. Nintendo already saw it had lost that hardcore gamer market and saw potential in casual and pulled a fast one. Very very smart move and kudos to them the only question is how long will this last. Honestly after super mario galaxy and smash bros and metroid prime nintendo has nothing left up their sleeve to capture hardcore gamers and once the casual ones get tired of wii sports and wii fit then i predict they will release their real console for this generation and probably go back to last place like they deserve
week. And with the release of Hot Shots Golf coming soon it should go up even more. Also i wonder if that Playstation Premiere conference they just had there will make sales go up especially since they showed MGS4 in playable form. We shoud see the effects of that next week.
Seems PS3 sales rise are here to stay :D
Lets see after TGS!
mmmmm maybe it is close to the ps2
There's only a 30,000 unit difference between ds and psp.
Nintendo DS Lite - 141,967
PSP - 37,578
I'm curious to know how you got 30,000, mate. Or am I misunderstanding your statement?
My bad, i mistaken the Wii numbers for the PSP.
Lost Odessey should push up those really low numbers though
xbox is gonna fail just lke last time, not by as much, but they are. once 2008 hits. its a wrap for microsoft cuz they dont really have too much left. while ps3 still has games comin this year and next year. the BIG LEGENDARY game will hit. mgs4, ff13, grand turismo, tekkan 6, and they might even bring back twisted metal. little big planet. microsoft, enjoy this year while it last, cuz this is ur last.lol
one word: OUCH!!!
Are the pick-up rates for PS2 in JPN, US and the EU.
Yes, I know.... Huge library, cheap now, yada yada. But, good lords, Those things are moving as if no new systems had ever come out at all.
It's kind of a spectacle really, I just want em to donate like 1% of the PS2 profits from this point on to me so I can see how rich I'ld be a month from now lol.
And everybody dogs on 360's sales there but it's still doing worlds better than their first attempt in Japan.
Then we need to take a look to see if there really is any momentum any more
I really think these sales are just the ole faithful gamecube owners updating. Yes Nintendo has attracted some newer casual gamers, however, Nintendo lost a few Gamecube owners as well when the xbox 360 came out.
Nintendo hasn't really increase their console numbers they just replace the ones who got ticked off at Nintendo's horrible game support and crappy controllers of the Gamecube and left for greener pastures (mostly xbox 360).
Call us Nintendo when you show us that you are reaching your 20mil to 30mil numbers (can't remember Gamecube's final unit count)with the Wii and show us that you're momentum isn't declining its rising - showing to strongly surpass your Gamecube user base.
I just don't think you will.
Clearance sale...get rid of it...
