Wii and PS3 continue to slip while DS retakes the lead away from PSP, but just barely.
1/8 as ps3.
meaning effectively 1/16th as ps3 since as ps3 costs 2x as much as an x360 in JAPAN
damn. japanese arent buying hardware anymore. Price drop ought to regenerate new interest in the ps3 and i dnt really see any games coming in to regenerate the wii signifcantly till mario galaxy or sumthin. Ps3 has a short but clear open windo this is the time to finally outsell the wii. Only handhelds seem to be selling xbox even feel back to its usual space looks like the halo effect was short lived. Kudos to msoft for getting 60,000 japanese ppls to buy it in the first place
Sony announced it would lower the price of the 20GB model by 10 percent from 49,980 yen ($428) to 44,980 yen ($385) on October 17. Sony will also start selling its 60GB model at 54,980 yen ($472), which currently retails for around 60,000 yen ($515). Sony will launch the new 40GB model at 39,980 yen ($343) on November 11.
Do you work for Sony?
why does he have to work for Sony? those dates are listed around the internet.
Then why are you listing all this information we know?
cooke15 because i ask in now stfu and go play barbie
thought the price drop already happened
no i didnt i meant it would regenerate new interest when it drops
ITs like comparing montorbikes vs cars.
Add up the Ninty numbers and the Sony numbers and compare...VERY close.
your right.......extremelyyyyyyy close! Good observation i must say!
Everyone in Japan either owns a Wii or there aren't enough to go around. As for the PS3, people are probably waiting for the rumble controller.
they found out about the 40gb PS3, so they're waiting for it till it arrives Dont worry about it lolz.
what the f*ck is going on with the PS3???
sell damn it, sell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
whoa! settle down man
clam down man just clam down
well, nintendo has been slowing down the number of consoles on shelves for the wii, to come out really strong on the holidays, so thats no surprise, its actually been a few weeks like that.
How hard is it to make a FREAKIN' WII???
I could probably sit here with a gamecube and build a wii quicker than Nintendo's freakin' FACTORIES!!!
They're doing this on purpose!
by another dumb xbot.OMG the Ps3 and wii slipped in a 3wk period,what will we do?!(NOW PANICKING) aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaahhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!(SARCASM)
GROW UP AND PLAY~B3YOND
uh, you mean WAIT B3YOND
Is that a picture of your dog?
that what his actual face look like
Just bought mine the other day, its awesome.
WOW those were some close number O.o
If you look at the ratio of DS's to people in Japan...it makes no sense.
Are the people just throwing them away every day and buying new ones or what???
there are over 150 million people in japan, there is still a lot of people to sell to.
I read some statistic that on average, every Japanese family owns something like 3.2 DSs. Crazy.
Again, they are back to their normal DS loving selves.
But glad to see PS3 pass PS2. Still, PS3, 360 and PSP deserve way better sales than that Wii (And to some degree DS) IMO.
I knew this would happen final fantasy save the psp's ass for a few weeks, but that's it...back to the usual regular ass beating by nintendo again. What till FF4 ds comes out that will be the death sentence for sony in the handheld dept.
now go out out and buy that portable Xbox/zune combo handheld you always wanted. Oh, that's right nevermind. I'll just end this post by rewording your idiotic comment. Wait til the DW/PS3 bundle pack is released on Nov. 11th that will be the death for MS in the console dept.
Gee, I never knew being a flamebait retard was so easy.
lol, ppl still buy the Gameboy Micro?
it seem so they need to buy ds or ds lite
console are really low but at lower that the xbox 360
# Wii 20,704
# PS3 10,822
# PS2 10,446
# Xbox360 1,547 (lol)
it look like japan is going to have handheld battles every week or not
