Find out which system came out on top in Japan for the month of January.
All as I expected
was there some sort of exclusive released for PS3 there??
@DualConsoleOwner... OMG... No sh*t? The Ps3 outsold the 360... who would have thought! You're pitiful man! We all know the 360 doesn't do well in japan, so is that really necessary? What you should point out is that the Ps3 outsold the Wii! I didn't think the Wii would get beat in japan for a while, but the Ps3 is starting to extend it's user base even further.
this is going to be an interesting year. will the ps3 pass the 360? are Wii's numbers going to drop completely? Does Ms have any trick cards up their sleeves, after an impressive holiday season? its about to go down
When the NPD releases, you think we won't have to hear how much times more the 360 sold 100 more times? "Lolz, teh 360 sold 1.15 times more than teh PS3, Lolz!"
Ps3 outsold 360 by a 13:1 ratio. This is what I'm talking about. Ps3 isn't doing nearly half as bad as in America as 360 is bombing in Japan. While this is all good, let not count out the American market. They proved in the last quarter how much they can root for the home team. We already know that this is pretty much identical to what's going on in EU.
202ht more then 360 am sure that more then makes up for the slight lead the 360 has in america during the month id say 4 years since the 4th year ps3 has slowly been outselling the 360
PS3 is also outselling the 360 in Europe, add that and we got ourselves the ps3 outselling 360 for the past 2 or 3 years
PSP – 228,550 PS3 – 218,165 Wii – 189,140 DSi LL – 132,983 DSi – 118,542 Xbox 360 – 16,054 PSP go – 14,853 DS Lite – 12,794 PS2 – 10,430 Not really suprising to sum up - the go is a flop, but the X000 models are a huge success - the ds is crushing everything - ps3 is the leadest selling console
its only 24 thousand ahead of the psp so its not really crushing its next nearest rival!
i think you got to look at the go as just another version of psp.you don't see sales amounts for all the other versions.it's just *psp.*you won't see psp2000-100,000 psp3000-128,550 it's just *PSP*or: 360 core-5000 360 elite-11,054 it's just *360* all the ds versions are just ds(s).it's not like they do anything different.should be just one number for all. it should be: psp ps3 wii ds 360 ps2 splitting it up just doesn't make sense..
LOL...The 360 needs david blane magic to help it sell in Japan :D
how big is the gap between ps3 and 360 ww? can someone calculate how much longer it will take for the ps3 to take over 360?
199 is all that it will take 2 bury it into 3rd place
Doesn't need a price cut to bury it.
ps3 is already ahead of 360 if you factor in units still working.
Nobody can know for sure I`m afraid. But I would say by the end of this year would be likely. I`d have a much better idea at the next quarterly reports because no one really knows how the consoles have been selling worldwide this year. It depends on how long the Kinect boost lasts. Because lets be realistic, Kinect saved the PS3 from closing the gap even more last quarter, so if that boost lasts, it may take longer than expected.
so the gap was 3 million ending december 2010,. now is 2.8 million without US and EU
So what will change when the Ps3 does take the lead world wide? Better yet, why do any of you care?
Nobody gets anything. It just shows fanboys need to accept the inevitable. Sony didn't outperform their previous competition by fluking it two consecutive times. The Sony brand is still the most preferred brand to consumers.
LOl PS3 has like 40 million to go before it takes the WW lead. @Dirty Beaver. LOL sure kid. That's why Nintendo beats them in console sales and portable console sales right cause PS3 is the preferred brand in last place. It must suck to have to ignore reality in order to say something good about your company
Same outcome different day. The 360's NA figures are void by Japan sales. Then Sony dominates further worldwide.
Guess what? It will not shatter my world if the Ps3 pulls ahead, im being totally honest here. I own both, but the 360 overall gets more playtime. Just my preference, nothing less, nothing more.
world being shattered. It's ultimately about having all those people who talk so much crap about ps3, finally eat crow. First it was the whole "why a blu-ray drive" argument. Sony quieted all critics when they won the format war. Then the "no games" argument came in, until Metal Gear Solid 4. Then the whole " 360 is more powerful" argument, until Killzone2 debuted. Now it's down to the LTD sales which is where their making their last stand. Sony will breach those fanboy walls and dethrone those who sit high on their 360 pedestal. I won't disagree with you because what you say I very true. Just offering some insight on why there is a debate on sales.
Yea? And I used my 360 so little, I sold the damn thing. It's like staring into a pool or mediocrity. @Topic: Not surprising at all...
Death 2494 hits the nail on the head, what goes around usually comes around.
I've been saying this for years. If things continue as they are now, Sony won't feel the need to drop the price until E3. People thing Microsoft outsold Sony last holiday season. America had alot to do with that and even then they only broke even with Sony. Q1 2010 700k Q2 2010 900k Q3 2010 700k Q4 2010 both sold 6.3 million WW Now let's say this trend continues with the minimum being 700k Q1-Q4 2011 700k = 2.8 million
Yep! A price drop to 199 and all heck will break loose. 199 + Uncharted 3, now that would be some holiday season combo!!
lol, Kinect failed hard in Japan. I thought, japan is more casual orientated.
Japan also likes products that are reliable and work.
good article Belasco.. I agree wit it.
Anybody ever notice that vgchartz always subtracts from the japanese ps3 numbers and adds to the 360 numbers. media create hardware PSP – 30,475 PS3 – 23,846 Wii – 14,972 DSi LL – 11,555 DSi – 9,954 Xbox 360 – 2,282 Vgchartz numbers PSP 28,207 DS 25,485 PS3 22,748 Wii 16,034 X360 2,314 PS2 1,579 They do this every week. They got caught doing the same thing with Europen numbers.
Oh no their 360 estimate was off by 32 consoles.. damn those fanboys and their inflated numbers.... what an idiot. Estimate kid. Look that word up in a dictionary please. Or have a parent read it for you and explain what it means.
Yeah thats crazy. Imagine them doing that every week, every month, every year. They use to do it for Europe numbers but got caught. Then they had to adjust those numbers because of it. Which is why so many people thought the 360 was further ahead than it really was. Yeah not a big deal though.
