Glad to see Prof Layton outselling WiiFit.
Not glad to see Wii outsell PS3.

It just goes to show that price drops only add a surge to sells but games are what attract new customers consistently. Games sell hardware and there's no other proof to this than the PLAYSTATION 3. It needs a major franchise, and from the trailer at E3 this year, the call is still the same; Metal Gear cannot come soon enough.

The positive however is that it's proven that, with high profile games, it has the potential to out sell even the mighty Nintendo Wii.

MK_Red3336d ago

True.
And the thing I'm really counting on is GT5 Prolgue thats coming out next week.

The funny thing here is that Assassins 360 sold 34k!!! I wonder how much the PS3 version would sell (If they ever release it there).

beast3336d ago (Edited 3336d ago )

Before price cut ps3 was hovering aroud 10K . I cant understand how this is just a little spike.

titntin3336d ago

You'd expect Wifit to move a few K of Wii units!! With no releases for PS3 this week, it was a no-brainer that Wii would be back on top in Japan.
As you say, GT5 might shift a few units next week....

Let's see how that does in the Japanese market.

MK_Red3336d ago

Next week, it's GT5 vs WiiFit. A racing simulator vs a boredom simulator.

AllroundGamer3336d ago

why not combine those together, drive your car with the WiiFit mat :)

MK_Red3336d ago

LOL good one :)
Use WiiFit for pedals in GT5 ;)

AllroundGamer3336d ago

no no, lean to the side to steer :)

Premonition3336d ago

Hey MK Red, im not sure but is GT5 downloadable only or will it come on disc and PSN? cause if its only through PSN im not sure how it can move units unless its advertised on tv saying something like "Only through the PSN store" or something like that, but if its both then it should move a good amount of PS3's.

MK_Red3336d ago

It will be on disk as far as I know.

Did Lost Odyssey come out last week or this week (I'm guessing this week)? I'm curious at how this JRPG does in Japan on the 360.

Real gamer 4 life3336d ago

Grant turismo prologue comes out next week. lets see how wii fit does with grant turismo prologue next week. I think lost oddyssey has no chance with wii fit and prologue out in the market.

PS360WII3336d ago

DQIV up to 700k+ that's good to see as well. Professor Layton is up to is't 3rd/4th game in Japan and US hasn't seen 1 yet :(

Pretty impressive for WiiFit seeing that it is what it is. Glad Wii is still selling strong.
