PS3 : 7~8k
360 : 7~8k
DSL : about 80k
PSP : about 70k
Whenever a data sheet says "ABOUT." I throw it away.
Agreed, these are really rounded out numbers.
The real numbers are here.
ps3 = 8400 x360 =7100
NOTE :_ ps3 is getting a price cut so people refrained from buying the ps3 last week. ELITE was launched last week
SUPER CORRECT numbers directly from SINOBI
ps3 = 8400
x360 = 7100
However these are FAMITSU numbers . Also note people knew that a price drop would be in effect FROM TODAY(17th OCT) in JAPAN so many refrained from purchase. The x360 surge was due to THE LAUCNH OF ELITE --which sold among some foreigners. However expect x360 to drop to 2--3k next week and ps3 rise to 25k --50k next week.
http://ameblo.jp/sinobi ...SINOBI said that ps3 and x360 were at 8000 + and 7000 respectively.
wait for MEDIACRATE numbers. I think x360 sold around 5k rather than 7k . FAMITSU tracks 40% of retail stores. MEDIACRATE tracks 60% of retail stores
Those numbers are VGchartz repeating FAMITSU and other industry analyst's numbers. Read the article.
can't we wait till after new years for these?
PS3 sells wil rise due to the drop.
360 sales will be much better from its past sluggish ass whooping due to the Elite and some games the Japanese want to play on the 360.
Hate to break the news. Considering the ps2 had 40 million by the two year mark Worldwide. The 360 by far is no where near 'winning' a console war, especially with the new competition so CLOSE in sales.
God I love owning bots.
You do realize that the Xbox 360 hasn't even been out 2 years yet.
wil4hire "11 million units in 3 years is pathetic."
God I love owning bots.
HAHAaaaa you call that owning? or just a retard, that can't get simple facts straight?
I love when douchebag's own themselves. You fail wil4hire.
this 7-8k is part Halo 3 mania in Japan along the launch of a new sku.
Don't get arrogant over this, and it's cool. You get arrogant then you leave people no choice but to remind you how small that really is.
Good news that Sakaguchi-san's Lost Odyssey is shipping at the start of December.
That should see another nice bump.
Didn't you 'go green'? Or was that just a ploy to get attention?
You are right those numbers are small and says bad things about the PS3 because this is Sony's home and the price is already dirt cheap in Japan.. It's just not selling.. I think it's a a HUGE feat for the 360 to match any of the Wii or PS3's numbers considering it's like the red-headed stepchild in Japan.
I wonder what will happen when it reaches the price of XBOX 360 in Japan.
These number seem to be inaccurate. There's no way in hell 360 is matching PS3 in numbers in Japan. Where is my boy nase so he can confirm this.
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
well there are reports of the ellite selling out in japan so numbers can be true
Thanks Nasim. I knew you would come through on delivering accurate numbers that Xbots believe to be blasphemy. Bubbles for you!
But it's the truth and Numbers dont lie. PS3 Outselling 360 WORLDWIDE with America being the exception.
P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
LOL. Your such a disguised 360 fanboy it's ridiculous. Your doing a great job making yourself look like a fool.
How many of these charts can we have? There's a story two spaces under this one with worldwide sales.
I dont know who this EzCheez guy is but I have a feeling he amazing at WarHawk and goes around raping people in the game with Bradwick and Huddymonster
They wouldn't dare disagree with your Warhawk statement because there is nothing there but facts. A5 will OWN anyone in Warhawk.
Ps3 sales are low because the japanese know they're getting a price-cut soon. 360 sales are higher because the Elite being released. DS sales stay the same because the japanese freaking love that thing. :P
Although 360's increase in sales is rather unexpected, it probably will turn out to be nothing more than a short "bump" (and a small bump at that!) Still it's just nice to see 360 matching with the Ps3. In japan.
Let me say 1 thing:
1. 360 will never sell as much as PS3. I don't care if FFX13 comes out exclusively for 360, it won't sell more. I've been to Japan and they treat 360 like it's trash. It's not really a "cool" icon. It's like buying a Zune in North America. Everyone has iPods, but only a few morons buy a Zune.
Also, VGchartz is false. I find it hard to believe such a small website running off of ads from smiley faces can earn enough to convince every retailer everywhere in the world to give them their sales.
"I've been to Japan and they treat 360 like it's trash." That is such bullsh!t, you guys lie so much and make so much crap up that you don't even know when you've gone overboard.
Even if you have been to Japan (Which I believe to be a lie), unless you were there for quite some time, how would you know how the true general public treats the xbox360. All you have to rely on is past history and sales reports. Not word of mouth from the Japanese people, you barely write good enough english on this site for me to even fathom you speaking and understanding Japanese.
When I was in the Air Force, I spent a three year tour in Japan, and they for the most part are reserved people, they don't talk down about very many things, and they definitely don't do much public bashing like yourself.
Besides, the 360 has been out less than two years, let me guess you went to Japan for the PS3 launch there right? Or was it the 360 launch. Please.
Just quit it please!
For all you know sales are up because of Halo 3.
I'll take my chances with PS3 in Japan when the white sku launches or when Devil May Cry 4 comes out.
According to Ps3 fanboys on this site, Halo 3 is done?...
Then what would explain the increase?... Japanese don't like Halo.
The 360 sales world wide are not what they could be because the world is waiting to get $120 worth of free games.
Your info's a bit off none of what you posted is going to matter once the 360's sku's are close to $200-$250.
Just remember that the PS3's price drop of the 60GB/20GB in Japan isn't effective until October 17th, so sales will naturally taper off until then. Also that the 360 Elite debuted in Japan this week (Both so those points should explain Famitsu's figures).
And as another side-note, the Japanese also receive the 40GB PS3 (Black&White) along with DW6 bundle in early November.
I said be cool, but they won't. XBOX 360 fanboys are now claiming that XBOX 360 is overtaking PS3 in Japan.
Who ever believes this, make your name known. Have some balls...
So we can get back to you in a few weeks to see how your theory is working out.
I got nobizlikesnowbiz down already.
no need to get worked up over a couple of fanboys (you'll go mad!). Anyone with a brain would realize that this (minor) sales increase is just temporary for Japan. No one is debating that. Still, some success for the 360 is better than no success- and you've got to start somewhere.
Elaborate you flip flopping d'bag.
I think the 360 experienced a lil sales increase due to the Elite beign launched but I dont think those numbers are ne thing to celebrate about..if that's the best it could do with the launch of a new SKU..then I pity them....we'll see how next week chart numbers look btwn the PS3 sales and the 360 sales..!!!
Retards all retards above me.
increase in sales is due to halo3 and the new sku, still it does'nt manage to beat the ps3.
expect the ps3 to continue to dominate in japan and a close battle in Europe.
but as the new PS3 Sku releases I doubt it will stay close. It think PS3 will be pulling 20K. I dont think Japan is dumb like xbots in america and cry about BC. They understand that they can still use their PS2's.
but the 360 did get a bit of an increase. good for them.
PS3 was at 11,129 sales ending the week of the 7th. Then dropped 1,316 to end the week of the 14th at 9,813.
360 ended the week of the 7th at 2,393 but tripled the week ending the 14th up 4,816 to total 7,209. Impressive for the 360.
What got into the consumers to want to buy the 360 for this week?
Probably the best the 360 will ever peform until Lost Odyssey and beyond. Halo 3 and the Elite only raises the 360 to 8,000? It did drop PS3 2,000 units below normal.
I think elite released in Japan brought up the xbox360 sales
and new sku and price cut announce brought down the ps3 sales.
ds take back it places to number 1
yet another VGCharts estimate.
Guys the real numbers come out tomorrow
