....i dont like VGchartz

I doubt PS3 will be 100 K next week, maybe 50 k is more realistic, it's only been at 100K a few times (When MGS4 released).

And the numbers are from famitsu, not VGChartz, they are just translating.

AAACE53800d ago

I still can't believe the Ps2 is still selling???

I'll name it the little console that could! I really wish it would just die off, cause those could have been extra sales for the Ps3 or 360!

The Ps2 served it's purpose people... Move on to the new gen!

barom3800d ago

The numbers do not correctly correspond with the ones in this thread.

Not sure who's right or wrong but one noticable difference is that the Wii sold 131k according to neogaf and 151k according to VGchartz.

Megaton3800d ago

I can't believe VGChartz is still allowed to be posted here. Not only are they consistently wrong, but their site is full of malware.

@AAACE5 - Well I think the PS2 is still the home to the best current JRPG's. Persona 4 is better than every other 2008 JRPG rolled into one big ass turn-based, androgynous-looking ball.

Cyrus3653800d ago

Because there two different reporting agencies...One is from Famitsu, which is generally out first, and is a little bit less accurate (But realtively close), and the other is Media Create.

The link on neogaf is media create, this is Famitsu.

500k very nice indeed.

ItisI3800d ago

Wii has broken the all time sales of a home console for a week. Well done Wii. And DS is over 2 million last week too.

Miraak82 3800d ago

WKC releases tomorrow in japan,, should be a huge sales boost for ps3

darthv723800d ago

is the key word. Then again it may only sell to those who already have the unit. You figure those that want one will have recently picked one up for this game. Just have to wait and see next week.

truehunter3800d ago

25th is shipment date the release & Pick up is on 26th.

Unless its like MS who push the game early then its still a pick up on 26th.

Neoraf3800d ago

Famitsu (Big influence in Japan) reviewed WKC: 29/40.

IMO, it's a pretty average RPG.

lord_of_balrogs3800d ago

Fable 2 sold 36k, that's a pleasant suprise considering it isn't a typical RPG most Japanese would buy.
