Japanese developers are all going to support ps3 now.

Spinner3911d ago

Wow, look at how much Monster Hunter is making the PSP sell.

Damn Capcom, if they hadn't switched the PS3 version to Wii :/

Is there some kind of party? what an increase!

cmrbe3911d ago

and i hope it continues to go up. The PSP has been doing quite good lately. A couple more weeks on top then we could say its not a fluke but actually a trend.

Homicide3911d ago

Have you seen the latest NA sales for the GTA IV week? PS3 > 360. Thats right. The PS3 outsold the 360 in it's home turf during the GTAIV release week.

"Have you seen the latest NA sales for the GTA IV week? PS3 > 360. Thats right" uhh no... I have not seen it... seriously I didn't see these reports.. can you provide the links? and please... please... I hope you are not taking about VGChartz since they were dead wrong last month about the xbox 360 losing in america.

... actually nevermind... I just checked VGChartz and not even as a joke is the PS3 selling more copies of GTA...

unless you have a valid source of where you get your info... I wonder why you have so many bubbles...

XBOX 360: 2,317,774
PS3: 1,386,032

off by 1,000,000.... but ok.. we can't trust VGChartz... but seriously... were did you get your numbers?

Homicide3911d ago

Thats the new one for America.

Actually, VGChartz had 360 outselling the PS3 for March. They only had about a week or two when they had the PS3 outselling the 360, but it was by a small margin. You can check it out yourself for the month of March. Just scroll down until you see hardware.

I think he was refering to HW which everyone expected but being these are VG numbers i am not quite sure. As for SW. Just as most people expected. 60% to x360 and 40% to PS3. This is actually my prediction and i am sure it won't be far off from the actual NDP numbers. A ratio of 3:2 but not 2:1 as MS were claiming.

Bladestar3911d ago

bahh.. Hardware? I don't trust vgcharts on that... they said the PS3 beat the xbox 360 last month and when NPD came out they were dead wrong...
