DS Lite and Wii maintain their dominance in Japan, although PS3 has shot up quite substantially most likely due to the release of Hot Shots Golf 5.
I thought ps3 sold 40k
I'm not sure but i think is for the week of august 2?
Where's the other link. I can't seem to find it. Check the date on the other link.
here's the other link.
Sales number where taken from this site
As i've always said, vgcharts is NOT accurate.
or just standalone consoles?
Still almost 30k is still good. Wonder if it will continue into next week.
Yeah they do, and unless ps3 has another big game next week, no the sales will drop.
Thanks for answering. I noticed you are the one that posts this on N4G most of the time and i think your part of that site totalgamerzone? Your pretty consistent when it comes to posting these numbers and i look forward to it each thursday evening so keep up the good work.
Xbox 360 down in sales, PS3 up, whats new?
almost 30k not bad either. But rumors aren't always to be believed. Also where did the 40k come from? VG charts or Famitsu?
but this is weird......famitsu and media hardware said that ps3 sold about 40k
Well these are Media Create numbers. They are the official source in Japan.
did they count bundles as well?
I heard the 40K is from famitsu...then again I could be wrong
I was never good with numbers...even though Im Asain...
M$ is doing pretty bad in JAPAN.
I think JAPANESE focus on games like HOT SHOT GOLF n MARIO. It seems like the WII is the right console for them. ain't it?
Alien don't forget that Sony's numbers are for 3 consoles
even still its far out pacing MS
My lil friend IDION. Im not stupid, but it's fine. Now, i want you to go back n look at the numbers one more time.
ARE you happy now my lil friend IDION? You know you got owned again, don't you?
GTA IV was due for release on 17th October. Rockstar have been using the Playstation 3 as the lead platform. An Xbox 360 team have been working besides the core team adapting code. Whilst the PS3 Blu-ray disc will easily accommodate the game, there have been problems fitting the game on to a single 360 DVD disc. Microsoft will not allow the game to be released on 2 disc as they are concerned the 360 will be compared unfavourably to the PS3. The situation has led to tension between Dan Houser and the Microsoft Empire as there is currently no way the game can fit on a single dvd.
Microsoft are currently working on a new compression technology for DVD9 discs, however this wont be available until next year. In a politically worded statement Sam Houser said "The game is huge and is pushing the hardware platforms to their absolute limits. The top engineers from Sony and Microsoft are working closely with the team in Edinburgh right now, helping us to fully leverage the power of both platforms."
Whilst the PlayStation 3 version is all set for completion at the end of this month, Microsoft have tied Take Two into an iron-clad legal agreement that forbids them from releasing the game on any format unless the Xbox 360 is ready. This has meant that whilst the PS3 version will be ready for October, Microsoft have directly prevented its release. That's what happens when the Houser brothers sell their arse for the Microsoft dollar. Stupid limey gimp-bags
What are your sources for these claims? If GTA IV came out on the PS3, I'd say that would be a huge huge boost. So I don't blame Micro$oft for doing this, if it's true.
Can you please provide a source for your information? I have not been able to find anything regarding your comment and I'm sure everyone would want to read up on the article you got your information from...thanks!
oh and by the way, Take Two had already stated that the GTA4 demo during E3 was gameplay on the 360, so maybe their issues are framrate issues on the ps3? either way, please give us the source
I really don't see the PS3 selling that well this Christmas. Lair, Heavenly Sword, Uncharted and Ratchet and Clank. That line-up of exclusives is downright unacceptable for a year-old system. If they drop to $400, their luck may, MAY, change.
You're kidding right? You also forget to mention Socom, Warhawk, Haze and Unreal Tournament in time for the holidays.
Please?the PS3 a year old?Not sellign well this Christmas?
leon, your comment made me laugh. It has moron written up and down it lol. keep up the good work.
What the hell you want? NO OFFENSE. I think the PS3 line up is great. But what you have to say about 08? I think Ps3 have no competition.
It's always interesting to see these. :P
