PS3 Sales Double in Japan

PlayStation 3 is the big winner in the latest hardware charts. Sales of Sony's next generation console reached almost 30,000 units, leaving its predecessor in the shade.

Having exceeded the 100,000 units sold mark two weeks ago, Wii sales continue to fall, while sales of Sony's PSP and Microsoft's Xbox 360 are up marginally.

Shows that the ps3 is far from failing. In fact quite the opposite.

I think ps3 is gonna rocket this year with its great games but in 2008, i reckon ps3 will absolutley blow everything away. I think 2008 will be ps3's most successful year in it's life-cycle. Look at it:

2008-

Metal Gear Solid 4 - Absolute system seller
Final Fantasy XIII - Absolute system seller
Gran Turismo 5 - Absolute system seller
LittleBigPlanet - Will be absolutely huge and highly acclaimed
Killzone 2 - After seeing it, absolute system seller
Grand Theft Auto IV - Just another key title to the already great 2008 line-up
Burnout 5 - Better on ps3
Unreal Tournament - Better on ps3

and probably others like Heavy Rain and 8 days. Which will probably blow peoples socks off

These aren't new franchises trying to make a name for themselves in the market. Most of those games are proven AAA system sellers. The best thing i see coming to the 360 in 2008 is Mass Effect. Possibly Alan Wake, but i think that will attract a rather niche crowd. Really anything else doesn't really come close to the ps3 big hitters.

And i don't even know of anything for the wii coming in 2008

I though Burnout was coming out this year :(

WaggleLOL3644d ago

Also Level 5's White Knight.

And maybe FFVII remake with the FFXIII engine much later.

Robotz Rule3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

Dude's a freakin' genious!

Anyways,I can't wait for any of those titles Shadow Flare just mentioned!,especially MGS4;)

Edit:Ok Shadow,ok.

Shadow Flare3644d ago

Ya know,

MGS 1,2,3 were brilliant AAA titles. MGS4 looks even better
GT 1,2,3,4 were brilliant AAA titles. GT5 looks even better
FF 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,12 were brilliant AAA titles. And FFXIII looks to be more of the same
Killzone 2 blew everyone away
LittleBigPlanet blew everyone away
Burnout 2,3,4 were brilliant. 5 looks more of the same

and so forth and so forth

It's no about being a fanboy DAZ, its about what you know. Add something worthwhile for a change

ps. What's with all the agrees to my first comment? I must've been so wrong with what i said -sarc-

Daz3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

PS3 games are good what are coming out but how can you tell how burnout and unreal will look on 360 and ps3 because i cant.

I got bubbles tacken away for liking and disliking ps3 games some people just need to grow up.

lVlemphizStylez3644d ago

because what you like is going to reflect everyone else's opinion...Whether or not you like the FF MGS or GT series doesn't change the fact that millions of other people do...Lmao you crack me up...

"PS3 wont sell cause I don't like GT MGS or FF series" You're just as bad as he is with "telling the future"

Daz3644d ago (Edited 3644d ago )

DOnt people have there own opinion now thats sad really really sad because i dont like something on your god of a system lol

D_U_I3644d ago

Your full of s*it, the ps3 has crap games hahahaha

JOKE PEOPLE!!!! Great points, burnout should kick ass on the PS3... Bubble'sssssss for u!!!!(:!!!!

MaximusPrime3643d ago

I didnt say it, developers assured that Burnout will be better on PS3.

Burnout was born on Playstation first. No wonder Criterion released a special Burnout Dominator game EXCLUSIVELY for Playstation 2 and PSP.

I can't wait for Burnout Paradise.

these "news stories" are getting really old. They are almost as bad as "MGS 2 360 CUZ MY DOG SAID SO" rumors that were getting the "OK" from all the fanboys.

I digress, though, and will say that things are finally starting to look upwards for the PS3; I can't wait to see what this holiday season brings us! All we have to do now is wait for the final -US- sales numbers for July, and we'll see what the "price drop" netted us.

Edit: Who the hell would disagree with that statement?

Dogswithguns3644d ago

and the PS3 having lots of them lined up coming.

gEnKiE3643d ago

Thats crazy to think. Even without the price cut sony doubled their sales of the ps3... Lets just hope that they can continue this up in sales.

MaximusPrime3643d ago

great news for Japan.

PS: why is it they always used an image of prototype PS3 for their news.
That controller doesnt exist.
