Media Create has published the latest hardware sales from Japan. Sales of the Xbox 360 have been revealed, which includes hardware sales of the new model.
360 is down this week, but that was to be expected because the new model was released in Japan last week.
True. It's a 10,000 unit drop, but it's still above average. Good for them. Wii and PS3 are both up despite the new PS3 announcement and PS2 got a speedbump-sized increase.
true but next week im sure the numbers go back down. 3-4k
Very significant drop, looks like nothing works in Japan for Microsoft. I've said it before and I'll say it again, for the 360 to do amazing numbers in Japan, they need a fully exclusive Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest title. Nothing else will work.
Low stock for PS3... because the NEW SKU 320Gb and the 160Gb White. Xbox 360 back to normal again
oh boy that 17k that x360 managed to reach didn't last for long, x360 will sink back to 2-3k within a couple of weeks time
Do all everyone actually need to repeat the same thing. Wasn't the first person saying the 360 is down enough to get the message across. Repeating the same thing in rapid succession seem to be the norm around here.
I was gonna say the same thing. Better not, because people might get hurt in the butt... Join the black side, the Playstationside, where there is always light and tranquility.
After all the repetitious "PS3 is teh doomed articles" the fact that some complained about repeating comments for the same article is ironic in the most absurd way.
are so boring. Does anyone there really buy anything that isn't a handheld?
what because they aren't buying as many consoles compared to hand helds? for that matter how are these numbers or sales numbers in general entertaining/boring?
there is no hope in japan. microsoft should really think hard if they are going to make a new concole next time. if its only have the US market, it will never be profitable for them so they better leave the console business.
Now you´re talking.
this week - Xbox 360 – 7,303 last week - Xbox 360 – 17,370 LoL i guess it wasn't the new xbox360 that the japanese were going mad for last week then next week xbox360 will be under 3,000
So the week before last it had 2,060 total sales then had 1 week of "high" sales when the 360S releases to then drop down to 2x the usual sales the next. Not impressive at all, and makes me believe that the majority of the 360's (minor) bump in sales were probably by US military people stationed in Japan. Either way when the PS3 gets price drops or has a revised design the sales are WAAAAY more significant and stable over ALL the world.
Did you forget that Monster Hunter came out a couple of weeks ago for the 360 in Japan? The sales spike wasn't because of the revised console, it was because of MH.
