According to the latest sales chart, after the sales spurt caused by the release of Everybody's Golf 5, PS3 sales have fallen 40% this week, back to a more regular level in Japan....
More after jump.
XBOX 360: 3000 LOL LOL LOL
PS3 is still selling 6 times as better than the Xbox360,lol
check ur fact one word "amazon"
Amazon LOL! The crappy Dreamcast 360 is 150 dollars cheaper and it is still getting outsold by the PS3 in the only country that gives a crap about the Xbox...
Hilarious! Time for another markdown Microsoft...
PS3 sales cooled off from last week's Hot Shots activity.
Wii sales are cooling off too. That silly waggle hype is only going to last so long.
360 sales in Japan...LOL!
Is that a lame post like the one above me has 12 agrees. You PS3 fanboys love to troll.
That just proves what I always knew. The PS3 is targeted at kiddies and immature anorak wearing geeks.
Japan is filled with Sony whores you moron. Look at the sales everywhere else....don't you feel like an idiot
HUH?? U are showing me PS3 is selling better and higher rank than XBOX 360... PS3 #3 and XBOX 360 #5.
If I miss something, then XBOX 360 rank is short live, not even for an hour..SAD
Now give me online stores such as Bestbuy, or somehting, where the PS3 sold out.This amazon BS is not going to cut it dude, get over it
Dude, when the PS3 is at the top of the list at amazon the Sony fans brag about it everywhere......
what are you guys talking about?? PS3 #3 and XBOX 360 #5.. still behind. I dont get it.
because I went to a best buy 2 days ago and there was about 12 PS3s in a steel cage, abd beside them, in the same cage, were three xbox360 elites. By the way, I am commenting from a computer on a Carnival Cruise Ship. Going to Key WEst then Mexico. Left port at 4 o clock. First time ever for me being on a cruise ship. Been in Miami since Sunday.

drop which i predict before christmas. it will sell again. i know 360 fanboys are gonna try to down ps3 w/e they can because they know there time is limited. but this is only japan. nowhere else so far
and then comes other games like two worlds, bioshock, mass effect, motogp 07, ace combat, stranglehold, army of two, kane and lynch, guitar hero III, rock band, a better Madden 08, Live 08, Tiger Woods 08, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Two Worlds............and the funny thing is that I'm missing alot more upcoming titles....so with MORE AAA titles coming out for the Xbox, a lower price, and an overall more enjoyable gaming experience, should I care about low scoring games like lair, as well as games like Heavenly Sword which give you in game instructions on which buttons to press all through the game? I didnt think so.
Everyone who wanted the golf got it.
Now we wait for more games to sell the system.
This will bring out the xbots on full attack and the sony fans on full defence..
look above u
where r the attacking xbots?
its more like...compromising sony boys...and not-surprised 'xbots'
sales fluctuate, no big deal still sold more then the 360 despite being down 40%
Now that's hardly surprising for Japan now is it.
Let's wait until we get sales figures in from the other territories, Japan is hardly a fair comparison. My guess is that the PS3 will still have a slight edge, but not nearly as much as in previous weeks.
Sony = Expected to do well in Japan
MS = Everyone knows will be a flop...
Nintendo = Should be in second place as sony was the dominant (ps2)
BUT wait!....Whats this.....Sony...not doing well...in Japan?
you studis sony fans, you bought the wrong system!
What games do you have?
Its a Composite of Pokemon and Castlevania!
'When the Folk is weakened waggle your axis till the spirit is captured
so you can USE ITS SPIRIT TO BEAT OTHER SPIRITS.'
Pokevania:Dawn of the pokemaster!
....damn...I'm gonna lose a bubble for this....
ITs worth it though ^^'
yea but miniature golf with customization...
Japanese folks love customization (so do N.Americans, but to a lesser degree)
just for that I'm giving you a bubble!!
Why in japan is it call everybodys golf 5 ? Why cant it just be call hot shots golf 5 ? Vice Versa ..................Playstation Rules
I dont really care how sony or the xbox is selling Im just happy with my PS3..
I heard this is the end of the world....pause....not....
So places were the 360 do nto sale well do not count?
ps3 is still selling 6 times more then 360 and it went down 40 percent in japan. ps3 controller is selling more on amazon then the 360.lol. sales didnt even spike that high when the 360 dropped its price and it already has a couple games. that because NOBODY wants it. people might get it for halo. ONLY BECAUSE OF HALO. and after that, its a wrap. wait for mgs4 and ff13 and versus. japan will ONCE AGAIN be ps3. please talking about ps3 doin bad, look at the 360. been out a year ealier with no competition and still is losing in sales to everyone. how sad is that.lol poor microsoft. they just cant be the big dogs. its another dreamcast. waiting to fail............GET OVER IT AND STOP LIVING IN DENIAL
Please, PS3 JUST started passing 360 in sales a couple weeks ago (thanks to price drop) and the 360 has been out a year longer than the PS3.....Wait until the 360 price drop fully takes effect and the games start coming. Microsoft never really expected to do well in Japan but at least their trying to win over more and more of the Japanese crowd. And BTW PS3 is still millions of consoles behind the 360....
"LEROY JENKINS? THAT IS AN ENTIRELY UNTRUE AND BIASED STATEMENT."
I don't even know whose fanboys these are anymore...
...no more interest for hot shots golf anymore??
I know a drop in sales isn't always good. BUT!! What is does show sony, that a good game sells consoles. Hopefully they catch on to this and start bring out more games. (Not movies)
as it is to Sony, Ps2 is clearly the most famous&dominant juggernaut in Japan, to See Sony Struggling to get the fanbase up
considering the HUGE install base Ps2 had on Japan, is a damn shame
...Sony fans making fun of us failing is not a big wound to us
but to Sony...thats a diffrent story..
catch my drift?
Did anyone REALLY expected nintendo to get that big in japan?
Yeah, thats what I though...
A Failure that is expected isn't as big a blow as a Failure from out of the blues...
Sales go up and down. We don't need bogus-creed and vgchartz to tell us that.
Honestly give the damn PS3 some time. I love how you people just label the damn thing as a failure. Do you people even realize the damn thing has not been out for a whole year yet? The good games have not even started yet and people are bashing the hell outta this system.
Come one now
its funny that people forgot SONY is the reason that most these games people play today came from sony and 3rd party devs. but they couldnt get it done WITHOUT sony. and ps3 has the best devs in the world. people might not remember but ps1 was very similar in price. it was considered too expensive for the time. and everybody was saying dreamcast was better (ps3 vs. 360 anyone?)but of course sony proved everyone wrong and came out on top. idk why people expect for sony to MAGICALLY jump to first place when its been out a year less. the wii hasnt even caught up yet, although its about to and its been sellin much better then ps3 and 360 combined. so arguments like those are POINTLESS.
or people REFUSE to remember the ps1 vs. dreamcast battle.lol
what is there to explain when your theory doesnt make sense paradox lost. why waste our times. im not the one who pressed disagree but still i know thats what people think
quicker than you can say Fanboy.
Also, most of those 'great 3rd party devs' that you claim startyed on sony, actually began on nintendo...
Was FF born in PS?...I rest my case... :\
You talk as if PS is the god of all consoles.
quit turning a blind eye against the competition..
Its the worst thing a gamer could do to him self..
Ohh, but wait...your not a gamer.....your a fanboy...
too bad... :\
judging from your above comments
you sleep with your PS3 dont u?
and if Sony told you to jump off a bridge...you would wouldnt u?
~ its these lil kids man...they get brainwashed early .. no original thoughts :|
everytime It does go up in sonys favor YOU all have nothing against it....fing hypocrites....
and by the way, If your gonna press the disagree button atleast give me an explanation to why you disagree...
stupid fanboys :\
and you dare to call people "fanboy"?
I don't need to explain why your comments are senseless.
like i said earlier that microsoft was going to have it's revenge sooner or later to earn profit. ps3 is doomed.
How is 360 earning profit in Japan when they have earned nothing in the U.S. for the xbox brand? The xbox 1 had one profitable quarter and 360 has yet to have one.
Up 100, down 40...still up 60 (64 actually).
It's so easy to play the numbers game, especially with up-down percentages.
actually up 100% then down 40% isn't a net gain of 60%... see look at it like this: say you have 1 and 1 is = to your original 100% so going up 100% would = 2. correct? yes, ok now go down 40% of 2 and what do you get? yes, thats right you get 1.2 and yes, that would make an overall gain of 20% hmm funny that huh... yes we can all play numbers games but some of us are idiots and don't know simple math. shame.
that aside you are right to an extent they are still slightly up... however it might still just be some stragglers buying that silly golf game.
My numbers were incorrect.
But you get what I'm saying.
The japanese market is sooo wierd. They seem to like kiddy stuff. If the game is cute and friendly they'll buy it. Doesn't make any sense to me. I know that everyone is different but come on, this is just too much. If u release a Hello Kitty game on PS3 it would be selling like hot cakes.
Their culture is certainly different. I'm not drawn to it like some but I'm still fascinated by it.
there is no american made product thats going to sell better than its home systems. Ps3 is a japan made product and the 360 is an american made product.... you need to focus your attention at home and not abroad
Way to think out of the box there buddy. If you want to get into the it's made there so it sells the best. Who's the best console seller here in America? the wii? made where? I'll give you time to think about it.
I believe americans trust japanese/east asian products over most of their own. Look at their households. In japan its the same because they know their products are normally made to a higher quality and last longer. The second point was the wii is gunna sell loads anywhere because of its price and quirkiness plus its from an east asian company which is a win win scenario. Its every hardcore gamers 2nd console and many young peoples 1st ever console and is cheap enough to be an impulse buy for the masses.
Yeah, it rise then fall... It's not a japanese thing, the problem is that Minna no Golf come alone in that week, almost in that month (once quality is what matter).
But from late August, at least 'round here, this gonna be one hell of a ride:
September: Lair, Heavenly Sword, Stranglehold, Blazing Angels 2, Skate.
October: Hot Shots Golf 5 (US), NBA 2K8, Folklore, Sega Rally, FIFA, Jericho, Eye Of Judgement, Ratchet & Clank, GT5 Prologue, Guitar Hero, Need for Speed.
November: Area 51, CoD4, Mercenaries 2, Unreal Tournament 4, Army Of Two, Assassin's Creed, Kane & Lynch, Medal Of Honor, HL2 Orange Box, Simpsons, Haze, Rock Band, Time Crisis, Uncharted.
December: Time Shift, MX vs. ATV.
January: Alone In The Dark, Burnout, Dark Sector, Infamous, Silent Hill 5, Soulcalibur IV.
February: EndWar, Little Big Planet, Killzone 2, Turok.
March: Fallout 3, MGS4
April: Star Wars, Iron Man and even probably GTA IV.
Not to mention Home, Eye, Eyecreate, possible Music and Video services...
Looks like until April there won't be any time to the sales seriously fall after a good game launch.
And that will most likely happen for all the three consoles.
To your october list. You also forgot:
The Agency, SOCOM Confrontation, Little Big Planet Demo, PAIN, Echochrome, Elefunk, Aqua Vita, snakeball, Eight Days, Tekken 6, Eyedentify, Afrika, White Knight Story, GT5, The Getaway, and inFamous (which shouldn't be in january, it'll probably be late 2008), you forgot that Square Enix wants a simultaneous release for FFXIII and for Last Remnant in April, and God of War 3 is pretty much confirmed. There's also ICO Team's project, three "Cellius" games already announced long ago, and 5 exclusive games announced at PlayStation Premiere event (including nobinobi boy, made by Katamari's creator), not to mention Dynasty Warriors 6 which will be huge in Japan.
Last but not least there's ID's RAGE, Condemned 2, Resident Evil 5, L.A. Noire, Rockstar's new project, Heavy Rain and another exclusive Quantic Dream game, about SIX exclusive games that are supposed to "make you cry", NCSoft's exclusive games, pixel junk racers, more pixel junk games, tons of PSOne games, and the possibilities of Crysis Port, Eternal Sonata port, Splinter cell Conviction port (especially if EA joins with Ubisoft), Culdcept Saga port, Ace Combat port, Bioshock port, Kingdom Hearts 3, Resistance Rise of Man, Motorstorm 2, Sly 4, SOCOM single player, Warhawk Single player and other japanese games that will never see the (red ring of) light.
360 has a great line-up for 2007 too, but 2008 is gonna be a lot harder for it. What other big guns may it have after halo and too human, who knows.
Who disagreed and why? Oh yeah, 360 fanboys. My bad.
But we all know PS3 isn't doing too well in Japan, last week was just a bonus.
XBOX 360 fans shouldn't even talk because they're obviously doing even worse in Japan.
and a little inhumane I might add, as it only gives _Bots a semblance of hope that their system is somehow doing better or will do better!
Brutal, brutal I tell ya. Cruel and unusual punishment.lol
you really have to be tired of waiting for good exclusives to be all exicted over a golf game !!!
ohh crap.... Sony fanboys better start pressing that panic button!
The xbox 360 Premium is on 5th place (500% up)...
The Elite is on 9th (455% up)...
On first day of price drop.... would like to point out...
that the PS3 is not in even on the list of "Big Gainers" in amazon.com
which means... in 2-3 days... we should see the xbox 360 on top... too bad... the PS3 days of glory was spoiled by the big bad dog (M$)...
PS3 was immediately on top after its price drop. Xbox 360? Not so much. And to think it has a $150 price advantage...
The 360 has been out for a year already so there is less demand for one now.....
The Ps3 60GB is ONE item, so the estimate sales arn't spread
But MS has 3 SKUs....Core,Elite, and Prem
So the total is Spread to all 3, THATS why the prem isn't on top
Because our pricedrop gave us the choise of
Core,Elite, or Prem.
*I'm all out of catch phrases, sorry*
Japan didn't get another price drop and obviously are not too interested in the Buzz created by the Sony E3 which is predictable. In any case its not good to drop sales but i am not surprise. To the X360 fans. Stop trying to spin it in X360 favor because it will make you guys look bad.Although Nintendo was not expected to be infront of Sony in Japan,remember that Nintendo is also another Japanese company that used to rule the Japanese gaming market and the whole world actually. Wii is outselling everyone everywhere period. Heck i read somewhere they are only a couple of thousands away from surpassing X360 worldwide.
I own a 360 and a Wii and gave serious thought to getting a PS3 but passed for one reason...game selection and lineup. It still is all about the games. I have a 57 inch Hitachi 57f59a HDTV and was ready to leave the last generation of video game consoles behind. I have no huge loyalty towards any of the 3 players in the videogame wars. Once upon a time, Nintendo screwed gamers with multiple release date changes and slow adaptation to the disk format. Sony angered me with terrible customer service regarding issues I had with the PS1 and PS2 and I currently have my issues with Microsoft. In fact I have enough issues with Microsoft that I would be a proud owner of a PS3 if Sony could give me any compelling reasons to own a PS3...more to the point enough compelling games to justify an investment in the PS3. Outside of MGS4 in 2008 and Final Fantasy 13 (which I still don't have a firm release date on...is it still coming out in '08?), why would I spend more money for a PS3 for a clearly inferior game lineup through 2009. That's 2009!! Give me Kingdom Hearts 3, give me a next gen God of War or Final Fantasy or Shadow of the Colossus. Give us something to hand our hats on Sony...something that says "you won't get that on the Wii or the 360". Meanwhile, I have Gears of War (hands down Game of the Year), Halo 3 coming, Bioshock on the way, Mass Effect on the way, exclusive Grand Theft Auto content, etc. The Wii has Super Smash Brawl, a new Metroid, Mario Galaxy, I have Zelda: Twilight Princess, Mario Kart on the way, etc. You can argue these sales numbers and spin them any way you like, the fact of the matter is that by the end of this year both the 360 and the Wii are going to have terrific holiday sales and titles to go with it...you won't be able to say the same for PS3. Halo 3 is going to be one of the top 5 selling games of this generation of consoles...period. Madden and GTA will also most likely make the list when this generation is done as well as a Gears of War sequel. The point is that the PS3 can't wait until 2009 to give us reasons to plunk down the $499 or $599.
Did Microsoft want to do better in Japan? You bet they did! Did anyone outside of Microsoft really think they were going too...not really. That isn't as big a surprise as the complete collapse of Sony not only in the US but also in Japan where they thought of the Wii as just an afterthought coming into this generation and figured to have closed the gap if not passed the 360 in the US by now. All of their projections are shot because they don't have any exclusive software that can compete. The general perception is that "anything good on the PS3 is on the other systems". Not only does Sony have a poor Plan A, Plan B isn't any good either. Plan C seems to be "in 2009, we'll kick butt", maybe...but by then this thing will have been all but settled. It's Mario vs. Halo this holiday season with Sony sitting on the bench eating Humble Pie...
let's get this straight. wii is not in direct competition with 360 or ps3, they appealed to a much broader audience and most people here who own a wii, own a 360 and or a ps3 as well.
@changDangle with the recent $50 price cut you will now see the xbox take off. the wii has only sold 3.5 million consoles here in the US compared to the 360's 5.6 million. your'e going to see a huge shift in demand. the wii will become a substitute of the 360, or better yet on inferior good and thats not good!!!!!!!
lol today is only wednesday How is this news really?
