The biggest surprise for me is Oblivion, a Western RPG on Xbox360 (The PS3 version isn't released yet) doing good in J market! Not to mention a GTA game on PSP also being among top 10.

shysun3948d ago

They like great games too...just not FPS games!;)

timmyp533948d ago

it was just like 9,000. The games make the difference(Hot Shot Golf) =)lets see what happens when more japanese friendly games are released over there

MK_Red3948d ago

Good point. I knew a Japanese friendly game would help PS3 sales but 40k, More than PSP!? I cant even begin to imagine what happens when games like FFXIII and MGS4 hit the market.

Circa243948d ago

MGS is big in Japan? I didn't know...

Would you say it's bigger in the US or in Japan?

xaphanze3948d ago

It's big in both regions.It's one of the most anticipating titles in Japan.

tehcellownu3948d ago

180k first week?

I thought it was 150k.

40k PS3's solid is a good number.

junk563948d ago

remember pre-orders plus pack-ins with the ps3 bundle

Ju3948d ago

Currently it seems the PS3 outsells the 360 everywhere - except in Australia. It hit the >100K weekly mark globally. Seems that price - and maybe the issues the 360 faces ATM play into Sony's favor. Might change again with a cheaper 360, later this year. At least, this will be a very interesting holiday season (cheaper 360, more PS3 games).

sonarus3948d ago (Edited 3948d ago )

Games sell consoles. Thats jst the plain truth. Same can't be said for 360. Don't mean to be a hater but don't think it has hit 5000 in a long time.
