"charts French hardware over the first quarter 2007. "

That's right, the launch included. The launch sold well to fanboys, after that declined. UK dropped 82% in the second week, and even more after that. French not much difference.

So wait untill the 2nd and 3rd quarter. You'll see the PS3 dropping to all time lows.

"1. DS 260.000

2. Wii 144.000

3. PS2 92.000

4. PSP 90.000 "

Selling because they're cheap...

@ the dude below

Isn't the number of PS3 sales in this list or news then? IT IS
So if I want to talk about it, I will. Not you nor anyone else will decide about that.

You can discuss or think otherwise but for the rest ssshhhhh

Mart, start pissing on french as well.

Like I said before,the 360 is a DISASTER in Europe

I'm not impressed by these numbers. I guess they don't play that much games in France... these numbers wouldn't make a dent in the overral... we are talking about PS3 27K per month, XBox 360 14K per month... hardly anything to make a party over it.

@Raist - Explain to me what "Sales hardware in France (1st quarter 2007)" and how many months there is in a quarter? Now divide the number of sales for the PS3 during the quater by number of months in a quater.

Then again, I totally forgot that Sony failed to release the console as promised last year. So, I think they are only counting 1 month.
I think sales are great. But hardly will help Sony get to the 100,000,000 mark as they say they are. Still, globably the 360 is selling more, which means they are NOT catching up.

81k PS3's in a week = 27k PS3's per month ?


TheMART5261d ago

165k units @ launch in UK became 10k a week now after the launch and declines every week.

So it'll even be worse then that a month!

nix5261d ago (Edited 5261d ago )

Mart is supporting Bladestar... just like in the LBP. helping each other out... chooo... cute! that game is just the right one for you two. q:

ya... blade, france must be one hell-of-a-boring-country... but they got great lasses!!! ahhh.....

EDIT: my precious bubble.....


XxZxX5261d ago

IF they manage to sell the ps3 at a expensive price..And they did a price drop next year..they will tear another ass for the 360..cuz the ps3 sales will sky rocket

all consoles sold really well. it's a good start for the ps3. and for the 360 - this system is been around for a long time and has still strong sales.

i don't care much about nintendo's products but i think .... "IT PRINTS MONEEYYY"

the wii isn't playing in the same league like 360 and ps3 but it's good that it exists ... once i have kids, i don't want them to play some God or Gears of War.
