Well its not just the PS3 that dropped this week, its all the consoles except for the mighty PS2 which picked up a little. It's starting look like Nintendo may need to release some new colors for Wii, or perhaps some new hit software.
glad ps3 is still selling well.It was nice seeing the sales doubling with the release of only one good exclusive.Lets see what the other exclusives can do.
poor MS trying to play with the big boys in Japan
that defective x360 costs 250$ in japan and still no one likes it. Japanese cannot be foooled with defective console purchase
Xbots disagreeing with you Nasim believe that the Japanese can be fooled with defective console purchases I guess LOL
Goddam, how is it possible the PS2 is still selling strong. I just don't get it................. I love my PS2 to death, have 110+ titles but what took some people so long?
People who bought the Xbox and the GC last generation, they do not feel they need to move on to the next gen or do not have the HD TV or money to do so buys the PS2. Why? Well, the PS2 is the only system that still has games coming out, Persona 3 just came out, Twisted Metal is coming out soon, Sports game annualy will continue at least till 2009. Games are cheap now too, i found so many games 10 bucks
it murders x360 in JAPAN ,EU and NA ps3 also murders x360 in NA,JAPAN and EU
don't say that too loud. They'll come running in jackjawing about Halo3 and how the PS3 is doomed. I once said not too long ago that the PS3 is a baby Mafia Don. Hell, the PS2 is the fkn Godfather himself.
+Bubble+ for your great comment(and presentation;)! And yeah,shhh don't let the Xbots here you...... 2,691? Pathetic! PS3!!!!!
360 is all but over in Japan, thats god news for me (ps3 owner) as I love Japanese games/art.
The Wii has to be supply constrained in Japan, because i can't find a Wii by walking into a store randomly in my local area.
"It's starting look like Nintendo may need to release some new colors for Wii, or perhaps some new hit software." Nintendo is still doing quite well compared to the other Japanese consoles... About 3x the PS3, so it's pretty clear this is a universal trend... Not sure why they made that comment...
110k units to 83k units to 75k units to 61k units this week.
hope it keeps selling that way. It's a matter of time before poeple stop wanting.
I believe the Wii is still sold out in most places, including most areas of Japan. Last I heard about it, the Wii could be found by walking in some stores, if you got lucky but hardly a wide spread occurance. It seems Nintendo isn't sending everything they're making, in hopes of having enough Wiis to last though the holiday season. With some of the games they have comming, I somewhat doubt it will actually work.
Big games for the hardcore crowd of nintendo fans are coming out soon. Metroid, Mario, Brawl, and Mariokart will keep it going until they bring out more casual games.
There is still people in Japan without DSs? I guess there are buying the DSs for there pets now >.>
Two.Thousand.Six.Hundred.And.N inty.One? No wonder there making Soft Core Japanese Porn ADs. Lost Oddessy better be UNBELIEVABLE (compared to FF13), or MS has a interesting situation on their hands. MS it`s time to PLAY BEYOND.
Men i totally feel u Dr pirate. Seriously what?
will make them dominant in Japan. Warning:May make you laugh so loud the police might come.
haha....i laughed 2,691 times at that.
I nearly had the cops come out here I was laughing so loud. Dude you've got to warn people about that kind of stuff....wow.lol
thank god for the us 360 sales,because if ms relied on asia mainly japan to survive in this industry they would be dead!ps3 selling pretty well,thats good
just to make it overheat, he is smart he made something that made his ps3 destroy his 360, when it got destroyed he wrote SH1T on it(in japanese of course) and then threw it from his 78th floor.
i bet the trash man didnt even pick it up. lol Hey i read ur message/forum. Bleach anime would be real sick on ps3...they should spend like millions on it and make it a hit. Maybe capcom would be good at creating it, someone good. It would be a hit even for non-anime fans i bet. ok goodluck and take care [email protected] bubble for u bro.
1...2...3...4...5...6... Oh wat PS3 comes again for another hit KaBOOm! knock out! Our Victor Sony ps3 any words mr. ps3 "That sucker had the red rings of death!" lol Stay tuned folks for next weeks match PS3 vs. Wii! ......aahhahahahaa
maybe if nin could produce enough wiis to supply demand those numbers would still be shattering
i love how the japanese hate xbox the big green machine... but luv Final Fantasy
please leave the xbox alone, for all the crap that hardware is, it still has some good games in it. and the ps3 is not selling as much as sony nor any other developer hopes in japan.
You can't leave the XBOX alone the truth is if you want to be the winner of this "Console War" you need Japan, and asia support. Japan and other asia countries make up 1/3 of console sales. The days of Sega and Nintendo is a prime example of how Japan plays the big role in the console war. Sega held 52% of lead over Nintendo in NA, EU but it did pi$$ poor in Japan in return lead to Nintendo to sale more consoles than Sega in Worldwide.
Oh the 360 is doing bad in Japan. Talk about old news. Please don't fool yourselves that the PS3 is doing ok in Japan. Its sales are poor for a console that had a price drop just before launch. I'm only surprised it's selling so well, but that might be down to HD hentai and nothing to do with games. The 360 sold more games than the PS3 and wii combined and thats where console manufactures make their money. So in the end console sales only account for so much. You need the games sales to do the rest and the 360 is doing just fine. Shame about the PS3, especially since I own one but only have 2 games for it since the UK launch.
I also own both, last game i purhcased for 360 was R6V. nothing that interests me has come out for it since then. My next one will be biochock.
