PSP finally outsells DS after two years of dominance, but will it last? Wii and PS3 continue to slide before the holiday season rush and Xbox 360 remains dead in Japan.
Lmao..the GBA sold 0, yet it made the list. That just tells you that the original Xbox SOMEHOW sold less than 0..XD! And wow..PS3 almost caught up to PS2. Don't know whether that's good or bad =|
No ps3 sales went down so did ps2's so ps3 did no catching up ps2 just fell faster :P
cup is half full or half empty? You said, "PS3 almost caught up to PS2"... but in reality... is that the PS2 sells drop is faster than the PS3... because they both drop in terms of sells. I think.. it's safe to say.. that the PS2 is rapidly dying..
I think you mean the 360 is rapidly dying
Sorry blade, but your fanboyism continues to cloud your judgement. The PS2 is not rapidly dying, in fact it has sold the most consoles than any other console in history, and continues to put up some respectable numbers despite the age of the console. The xbox on the other hand has been dead for years, and wasn't the first to market.
the PS2 dying is the best thing that can happen to the PS3 right now. It is competing with itself...
same goes to EU the only territory left is NA which would fall soon. why is MS still selling x360s in JAPAN and EU
10:1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 wow.. that sounds like a lot.. why don't you say.. that the PS3 is beating the xbox 360 by 10K instead... but just dont forget to mention that the xbox 360 is beating the PS3 3:1 in the us... that the PS3 drop in sells by 40%... and that the xbox 360 is sold 60K more than the PS3 in 1 week... that's like 3:1 even if you put japan and the US PS3 numbers.. Here is my link to prove it: http://www.n4g.com/News-690... @Foliage - I have a PS2 and I loved it. But what are you blind or simply dumb? You can't see the continue drop in numbers? even in the US the xbox 360 is beating the PS2. @nasim- you are just an idiot... do you care to show that the PS3 is selling more than the xbox 360 in EU? http://vgchartz.com/eweekly... Europe and other contries xbox 360: 37,768/week PS3: 27,598/week I know you will say that vgchartz is not accurate... but only when is not good for the PS3 just like all other PS3 fanboys. But can you show us where you get the EU numbers? I
@bladestar dont be so proud that the x360 is selling more because it should!! u forgot that this is the second year in its life and it has much more games and halo3 is near the doors? and bioshock is out(although its not AAA games it has good graphics and good gameplay but sometimes u can get bored) and do u really think that next year in september the ps3 well sell like the x360 now?? i think it will be double it at least!!
just shows the magic of ff7 crisis core now put that magic on the ps3 with a remake of the original and see what happens :P end of the console war!
we dont think ff7 itself will help, we're now focusing more on more games.. so please do yourself a favor and shut up.
Actually if they get a FF7 Remake on the PS3 it would sell quite well, and with FF13 coming out also they wouldn't be able to resist.
I'M sorry but i cant shut up im not speaking to you im typing on another note you say "we"? your speaking for other people how bout you keep your opinion to your self with "i" dumbass
Agreed. A remake of FF7 would result in a HUGE spike in sales in Japan (probably globally actually). But this is something that I would have rather seen within this past year... as far as future projects, I'd rather see them get their new games out though. Since the basic story & concepts for FF7 are obviously done already... maybe they could finish it quickly & with less expenses to tide us over & generate some extra sales though.
Garbage, we're sorry you can't dictate US! We're sticking to what WE are. SONY > garbage360.... and U fail. Thanks for the support, say Hello to our ignore list.
FF7 WILL KICK ASS
good news for sony,but if any one including ms are expecting to take over the japaneese market thier sadly mistaking!An american product will never outsell a rival japaneese product.so with that being said who cares what happens in japan!
Japan belongs to Nintendo now, they are just letting sony have one week out of the year :P
Wow, AWESOME AWESOME News. As a PSP fan I'm glad to see PSP outselling not only Wii but the DS in Japan!
Wow, PSP sells out the DS, shocking.
I didn't know the PSP was making a slight comback either. Great News.
psp is a solid system thats been brushed away by the overwhelming console war. its cool to see that handhelds are getting positive recognition. i mean, crisis core couldnt have hurt... but still the psp has a lot of great games to offer and i think more people need to see that. also, its compatibility with ps3 sets it apart in terms of functionality. i mean lair sucks hard, but being able to play it on a psp is hopefully the first step in many toward that type of tech. just sucks so many crappy games get made for it... i totally want to play dirt on my psp
You do know with a little know how you can play Playstation roms on PSP, right? For me that is a BIG selling point. I plan to buy another PSP, and I am glad it'll be the slim.
Thinking about it now...a Resistance sequel, which is already in the works, will probably move consoles. The first one was actually REALLY good and the reviewers noticed it. It was just lost among the Zelda and Gears of War hype. Had they had more time, Insomniac would be able to pull off an AMAZING game. There's a pretty big Resistance following, I imagine. Anyone else think so?
It has crisis core, MGSPO, both Syphon Filter's, Silent Hill, Daxter, R&C:SM, Loco Roco, Tekken:DR, and a BUNCH of other fantastic games... ...the DS just has mario. So... The Japanese public really really really love Mario... That's why the Gamecube didn't just sit on shelves at launch... That's why, after 2007, the Wii might have a sudden drop-off in sales. Unless "No More Heroes" can save the system. They don't Resident Evil and Capcom to save them this time.
They have already made truckloads of money off of the DS and Wii... Even if both of those systems started tanking, Nintendo has more than enough money to develop the next versions of both. Personally, I hope that their next handheld and home console are actually powerful this time around... Both the Wii and DS could have been amazing if they had more graphical punch... If the old rumors of the Revolution packing a dual-core 2Ghz CPU would have come true, then it could have actually compared to the PS3 and 360... Real horsepower with the Wiimote could have been a potent combination... Who knows... Maybe the Wii 2 (or whatever they will call it) may ACTUALLY step up to the HD generation, and actually have some horsepower under the hood... Then again, it really doesn't take that much power to make Mario, Zelda, and Metroid games... :-P
lol wow you guys. All I can say is good for FF Crisis Core. That is the one and only reason that this is happening. I was just going to stop at that but any news that says how Nintendo product isn't on top suddenly all the trolls come out and spit in the face of gamers. PSP has 2 games that sold now. Monster Hunters 2 and FF. So I guess you could say PSP only has 2 games. You think that's a hugh increase of sales for PSP? That was for a spin off of a great RPG. Imagine what will happen when one of their most favorite long running RPG game from the main seires comes out? I'm talking of Dragon Quest IX for the NDS. That's right the game that has been on Japans most wanted since they announced it. Heck they can't even release a DQ game on a weekday they have a law against it for everyone would call in sick to work or school. Now that's a big deal of a game. Couldn't we have just had a nice comment section about yea PSP go FF and leave it at that. Oh no we needed a fight between 360 vs PS2 and PSP vs Nintendo.
Those are some super numbers for PSP :D Now were was that user that was saying the PSP was dead...
I haven't been following much gaming news lately, but whats with this huge spur of PSP's being sold, is it because of slim or a new title released to the Japanese Market?
Whos the person made this fake article lol i might have believed it if they moved the numbers for sony up a notch but not that much lol nice try guy someone in this forum has no life at all. Both the Wii and DS could have been amazing if they had more graphical punch... P.S to the one idiot update they are amazing lol where have you been living? the ds is on it's way to being to best selling system ever, and the wii is already ther lolol wake up.
