Check out the latest Japan Hardware sales for the week of 7/16 - 7/22.
PS3 is about to beat PS2.
man...those numbers are getting old...every week...same thing.....like another week on Gilligan's Island...yet...people still turn in every week..
hehe, they didn't even bother posting the DS's numbers...must be 2 times more than the Wii
lol i really didn't...it just always makes me ask why?
look at that huge ps3 comeback. n microsoft is killin em
keep 'em coming.
wonder how next weeks will look since Hot Shots Golf was just released!
I wouldn't mind seeing the effect that has on the PS3 sales.
Edit: @ 8.1
Thanks dude. Should be an interesting read when the numbers are released.
released 2 days ago, the bundle released today...i cant wait to see how the sales went on that
The 360 keeps on taking it in a**... Japan just doesn't like it.. I think it's time to fire the whole entire Japan 360 division, they are obviously doing a horrible job. I can see it being under 1k in the coming months, maybe Oblivion or Halo 3 will do something for it but I highly doubt it. You could release a Japanese made cardboard box with nothing in it that doesn't even play games and it would sell better than the 360.
Japan likes strange games.
PS3 and X360 don't have these games (yet).
That could be why PS3 and X360 sell so bad in Japan.
MS still going strong:)
seriously, this just SCREAMS price cut, like NOW!
I doubt the Wii will ever catch up to the PS2 in overall sales. Has the DS already surpassed it?
in another galaxy.
it makes me sick to my stomach that the wii is selling to well.. casual gamers rejoice, i guess
Pretty pathetic to see the most pwerful consoles at the very bottom =(
I'm glad the PS3 is doing a lot better, but it makes me mad that Sony put all that time and effort into building a machine for GAMES!!! ...and Nintendo just put a new controller on their Gamecube. Wii Sports isn't even that FUN! Why are they selling so well? The DS is a mystery to me too! Silent Hill Origins is coming out on the PSP soon. Is the DS getting a Silent Hill? NO!!! It's maddening to see great games not get bought.
Look being mad because SOny put so much effort intoo their machine( like nintendo did on their controller) i can understand( not).
but just saying : "Silent Hill Origins is coming out on the PSP soon. Is the DS getting a Silent Hill? NO!!!"
is just a sign of fanboy'ism....
Because you dont like wii-sports doesnt mean others dont like it.
Silent Hill no, but the DS is getting a slew of Square-Enix products like oh I don't know DQ IX (only the #1 most wanted game since it was announced) FF:Tactics A2, FF:XI, Crystal Cronicals, It's a Wonderful World, plus all the other oddities the Japan people love to play and for the US the Western devs are starting to crank out some pretty good ports and titles for the DS. Brothers in Arms, Assassins Creed (rumored), and even Atlus with there niche type games have exploted the DS.
Though the PSP is a good handheld the 3 year shake start is it's downfall but Sony is finally focused on bringing games to it and games that people want. Silent Hill Origins is a nice start and will get better just not soon. No one can deny Sony has put it's foot in the door for the handheld crowd and while Nintendo still owns the crown to this land Sony is now apart of it.
Japs don't like crappy hardware like 360.. its common sense to stay away from such a crappy product.Ps3 is going to pick up real soon there.
Without winning in Japan...the Xbox 360 is doomed at staying as the number one console....the Wii will overtake it and then the PS3 will by this time next year...
Halo 3 will not save the Xbox 360...Halo 1 and Halo 2 did not save the Xbox!
There is nothing wrong with third place...
It's just nuts that combined the 360, PS3, PS2, PSP still don't even come close to the number of units just the Wii sold. Then the DS sells 150k+ Jizy Crizy!
Are we going to get software sales as well? I would like to see Hot Shots Golf 5 on the top of that list please ^.-
just recently came out. There is only one PS3 game and its number 50. Everything is dominated by DS, Wii or PSS2..
Domination!! Yeah that's what I was figuring it really would be. It's just amazing how much those 2 are selling over there.

Good for you, here's a cookie!
Expect Hot Shots Golf for PS3 to be the number one seller next week.
2,664 console 360 sold thats not too bad I mean it all adds up. It is better then the old xbox what was it like 20 or something a week.
And man do they love their hot shot golf in Japan or what?
