the ps2. Maybe it'll get a boost in a couple weeks with SO4? Can it outsell the ps3?
I don't think it can, but it's possible. The PS3 is actually doing pretty well compared to last year at this time. Maybe it has found new momentum with successive impressive releases?
More sales numbers to help me sleep better. /sarcasm Come on folks, at this late in the game, does any of this stuff really make a difference? Just asking because all I ever see from sales numbers is a bunch of fanboys getting their panties in a bunch over numbers that will never amount to anything for us gamers. Does anybody actually own stock in these companies and if so, what returns have you seen in regards to the financial reports that come to us monthly?
Actually, PS3 selling better has an effect to PS3 owners. It gives them this reassurance that more Devs will start to make games for the PS3. Some games like JRPGs are being horded by the 360. If PS3 expands it's install base, those devs will at least make their games multi-plat right off the bat and not timed-exclusive anymore. Or, they will make games exclusively for the PS3 in competition with the 360. We may not benefit from it directly, but indirectly, yes. But I think you already know that.
I think there are over 250 thousand Final Fantasy VII Special Edition PS3s already on pre-order. Plus what kind of text is that? All the systems took a dive over the past couple of weeks, plus the fact that there were no good software released for Jan.
I understand that logic and would believe it if we were seeing an install base of 10 million but the PS3 is double that now and is already a guaranty to developers that most if not all games will sell enough to be profitable. All I am saying is that sales of consoles at this time is for investors, not gamers. The install base of each console is a solid showing to developers that games will be sold on each platform and so the argument that more consoles sold ='s more games is a minute and dare I say nearly moot point right now.
Just wait for the Final Fantasy Advent Children blu ray to release, Japan PS3 sales will skyrocket
Ps3 software sales are extremely low. There is not proof that making a game for PS3=instant success. Lair, Haze, LBP,REsistance2... Ahh whats the point..PS3 has a lower attach rate than the Wii, thats how poor its doing. Anyone that cant see that by now is either an extreme idiot or jsut a fanboy who wants to deny reality. You think PS3 software sales are so great? Please explain Factor 5, haze developer, Midway crisis, PS3 games needing 3-4 months to reach 2 million sales when Wii and 360 only needed a couple of weeks to do that with their games, PS3 getting less play time than the original xbox. I mean if software numbers are as good as you claim why is PS3 doing so poorly? Also can you provide a link to where you get your software numbers? NPD proves you wrong as does Famitsu and Media create.
Notice Wii sales? I think it isn't just PS3 fOObs.
Please don't let console sales hurt your feelings. Everything is down.
ppl are waiting to buy the FF7 PS3 bundle....but sales are pretty consistent though considering sales normally drop off alot..after the holidays
continued anti-PS3 emphasis in anything written here than it does my feelings...yesh.
will make the ps3 sales increase and then final fantasy.
More like EXPLODE! It's not going to be pretty when FF13 launches in JPN this March/April. PS3 sales are going to be off the charts.
lol :) edit: im not bashing the 360 more admiring the strength of the ps2
Something I'm sure Sony is proud of, no doubt. That said, the 360 has more than tripled its sales from this time last year. Unfortunately for Microsoft, 3 x 0 = 0. <-- j/k ;)
damn 360 is winning,
I think PS3 sales are slowing down because ppl in Japan are perhaps waiting for the big titles in Feb and March: Street Fighter 4 Demon's Souls Yakuza 3 Resident Evil 5 Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete. Besides Demon's Souls, the other four have specialized hardware bundles accompanying their release. Why buy a PS3 now when you can get some killer deals in the coming weeks.
xbox 360 is dying! its on da same page as the PS2...Damn! and ppl are startng 2 realise dat da Wii is for boring people with no sense of gaming.
this is japan remember, those figures are very good for the Xbox-360, it shows genuine interest in the product.
HW sales down for everyone. RE5 and SF IV will give a boost, imminent release of DQ IX and MH3 will push major HW, Star Ocean on 360 will make some push. FF VII PS3 will make a push as well. I think better times are coming for gamers.
Where does it say that chart is for Japan only? I looked but I can't see anything that suggests that, I'm not being arrogant I honestly don't see that info, but if your right then yeah, that's VERY good for the 360 in Japan. I guess they're more patriotic than people think eh?
Media create sales are for Japan only... 2 things to notice. One it says JPN on the pic. 2 They list the DSi sales. DSi isnt out anywhere but Japan
Sales always slow down at this time of year.. It's not because of bundles of games that dont come out for 8 months that people are slacking off.. Sad that people try so hard to justify poor sales when the reasons are very simple. All console are on the decline. Why? Because it is after the holiday season. No console is in trouble over there. All are doing exactly as they should.
Doesn't matter in the least. At least make your judgments based on eurpoean numbersa or better yet worldwide. Japan sales are meaningless. They have stuff we will never get and their tastes are totally a minority to the rest of gaming culture. To reinterate... who cares. However i am surprised that the psp is actually selling well someplace in the world... to bad it is someplace that doesn't matter.
