lol @VGChartz these guys suck so bad. Didnt they say this was the week 360 was supposed to come closest to ps3 sales. Meanwhile psp is on a ROLL

ruibing3931d ago

Well, the preview is biased depending on whose writing it up and they probably often misjudge the impact of certain titles.

I just don't get how according to its software tracking, the PS2 doubled and the PS3 halved just like that. I trust its hardware sales much, much more than its software section.

Is owning a PS3 symbolic?, why do they sell?.

I guess PS3 is in three different markets really. Web surfing market, DVD player market and Game market. Not doing devs any good.

ruibing3931d ago

Is owning a 360 a fad? Why do they sell?

I guess 360 is in three different markets really. Add-on market, subscription market, and game market. I don't know who it is doing any good.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

(Notice I did not to mention certain gray markets).

ikiru33853931d ago


the 360 is also in the very same markets that you say the ps3 is. what is your point?

sonarus3931d ago (Edited 3931d ago )

i don't really understand the point you are trying to make?. But is completely off topic

Genesis53931d ago

Is owning a 360 moronic? Out of 8 guys that I work with 5 of their machines are out for repairs. Why would I buy that?! Until they fix their hardware I don't care what games it has.

Asurastrike3931d ago

Anyone else notice the 360 outsold PS3 on software chart? lol

Intrepid3931d ago

For every 360 game sold in Japan, 4 Wii games were sold. It's 5 for the PS3.

7h3ultim8p003931d ago (Edited 3931d ago )

Yeah I noticed that too. I didn't want to start a flamewar by pointing it out. PS3 dropped software sales by 30,000. Nintendo destroyed all as usual.

DrWan3931d ago

well ps3 had no major release and they had idol master. no big will go back down to low lv next week. in general 360 software do not have legs beyound the first 2 weeks in japan even with major releases, and i tink we already saw that for the past 2 yrs

Hydrollex3931d ago

but PS3 is not dead in U.S. It's not that good and it's not that bad
