840 360's? I farted more last week.

jahcure3717d ago

maybe it's those shortages MS was talking about. Do you even know how much damage selling 840 units in a week could do to the stockpile?

mohib-uddin79865323717d ago

840 units in a week ....

is pathetic

Homicide3717d ago

ROFL! Now that's a flop.

MAiKU3717d ago

Dude with those numbers, that isn't even a shortage issue.

bosels113717d ago

840? I cant even laugh thats so sad.

Kleptic3716d ago

haha didn't Kotaku say it was all aboard the comeback express?...I wonder what happened...24k in Japan for one week and once again US media starts claiming the 360 will rule the world...welcome back to reality...

840?!?!? That must be an error lol

mohib-uddin79865323717d ago (Edited 3717d ago )

Dont Microsoft get it yet

Microsoft are "not" wanted in Japan ! ! !

deeznuts3717d ago

I don't buy MS always claiming shortages. But at 840, it's got to be one of two things: There really is a shortage, or everyone in japan that will buy a 360, has bought one.

840 is an accounting error in a country that big!

mohib-uddin79865323717d ago

There are no shortages for Xbox 360

Microsoft said they are going to restock in September 1st

Light Yagami3717d ago

It's not error; It's JUSTICE!

Without out Microsoft, they'll be no Killzone a.k.a "Halokiller", the PS3 would still be $800, PSN would stil be as bad as it was when it was released and you'll have to pay for it. You won't have trophies, you won't have companies like Insomniac, Naughty Dog pushing the PS3 because they'll just try to make their game slightly better that what's done on the Wii...

So stop acting like a 12yr old and be glad there's a company like Microsoft that's making Sony try harder.

EDIT: @deeznuts Whatever. I don't have time to argue with your kind. This will be my last comment on this website.

mohib-uddin79865323717d ago (Edited 3717d ago )

I LOVE DEATH NOTE... My First Anime its too INTENSE !

please write "shane kims" name on the death note as well as "cliffy b" ?


deeznuts3717d ago

leila01, was the PS1 or PS2 $800? NO? Your whole comment is then null and void.

As a matter of fact, the PS didn't get expensive until AFTER MS showed up on the scene. Hmmmmm????????

silverchode3717d ago

sega would have been better than microsoft.

meepmoopmeep3717d ago

it was 360 supply issues... that's it.

3717d ago
mikeslemonade3717d ago (Edited 3717d ago )

I believe Meepmoopmeep is being sarcastic. Didn't Microsoft say they would drop the price again soon, so that would explain the decrease. If not no games would save the 360. And Micorosoft might as well give up tommorow and declare they won't be selling 360s in Japan anymore.

meepmoopmeep3717d ago

haha, yeah i was being sarcastic,
but who knows, phantom disagreers like me :P

Microsoft is getting raped over in Japan

chaosatom3717d ago

Microsoft knows it, Japanese people know it.

pwnsause3717d ago

looks like the PSP first place run is pretty much over, until the PSP-3000 arrives.

Edit: 360-840 consoles sold

ok, is this a typo, or is this for real? because if it is, Microsoft should just abandon Japan now. Rpgs are not going to help them win. Not even a Ninja game (referring to that Ninja Blade game)

Xi3717d ago

the price cut goes to effect in japan on the 11th

there might still be shortages


beoulve3717d ago

wait if a shortage can cause 840 unit sold, so those 3k unit is not shortage problem after all.
