PS3 Reigns in Japan

Play.tm writes:

The latest hardware sales figures from Japan will make pleasant reading for Sony bosses as they shot the PS3 and PSP occupying the top two slots.

According to the Media Create figures the PS3 shifted 75,311 units and the PSP 64,675 in the week ending June 15th.

Next come the Nintendo consoles, the Wii was in third with 45,564 and the DS forth with 39,201. Then up pop Sony again with the evergreen PS2 notching up 7297 sales before poor old Microsoft bring up the rear with 2163 Xbox 360's sold.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lmao. So funny.

Breakfast you're so smart and witty(you try way too hard)...I was actually laughing at how a website referred to a corporation as "poor old" Microsft. Poor old Microsft?? lol

The X-Box 360s were bought by the US soldiers on the base in Okinawa.

Its not so funny when you realize your laughing at sales numbers.

pharmd4401d ago

maybe the wii has begun to saturate the market over there but nonetheless im seeing a trend start!

juuken4401d ago

Lmfao, poor old Microsoft. That made me laugh too.
Oh wellz, back to MGS4 I go!

solidt124401d ago

Sony had a good week indeed.

No FanS Land4401d ago

what makes me laugh is that the ps2 sold nearly 3times the hardware microsoft sold. I must say for an 8year old console versus a 3year old is kind of a shame.

The thing is europe didn't need any boost in sales. Ps3 has been doing very well there all year. These idiots are so skewed it's not even funny.

fishd4401d ago

75,311 / 2163 =34.81
OUCH!

Homicide4401d ago

Poor microsoft. Spending money on JRPGs, and it's not even helping them in Japan. lulz.

eagle214401d ago (Edited 4401d ago )

ps2 was released on March 4, 2000 in Japan.

That is even more than OUCH...LOL..

More like STOP THAT REALLY HURTS! :)

Wait until Gran Turismo 5 comes out;Japan will be 'Sony land' again once Yamauchi delivers another excellent entry into the massively successful Playstation Exclusive that is Gran Turismo.

Man,I can't wait for GT5,it'll definitely raise the bar in terms of delivering the most realistic Driving experience and Racing atmosphere available across all Video game platforms.

eagle214401d ago

Also that small little game that has occupied the number one spot on Famitsu Most Wanted List before PS3 was even released up to now: Final Fantasy XIII.

But either will do the trick. :)

Condoleezza Rice4401d ago (Edited 4401d ago )

Also,don't forget White Knight Chronicles,a very promising game that is shaping up to be the next big RPG!

fenderputty4401d ago

I thought GT5 would do it too, but now I don't think so very much. It might help, but beyond this game, I don't see anything helping until WKC and FFXIII come out. Those games should start to push PS3's pretty well.

Condoleezza Rice4401d ago

Remember though;GT4 Prologue didn't sell consoles as well,and GT5:P does not have nearly as many features nor content that the full game will have(900+ fully licensed Cars with over 50 unique tracks).

ThanatosDMC4401d ago

Now if Monster Hunter 3 goes back to the PS3... it'd sell like, ummm... what's the same as hotdogs in japan?

xg-ei8ht4401d ago

It will if he adds a damage system.
