Media Create has published the latest hardware sales figures from Japan (official numbers), following the Wii price drop.
DSi – 53,293 PSP – 51,215 PS3 – 37,538 Wii – 35,392 DS Lite – 10,661 Xbox 360 – 4,244 PS2 – 2,179 PS3 maintains the lead despite the Wii price cut and WiiFit PLUS. Now thats impressive...
They screwed up the last week numbers. Edit: Fixed now Media Create hardware sales (9/28 – 10/4) DSi – 53,293 PSP – 51,215 PS3 – 37,538 Wii – 35,392 DS Lite – 10,661 Xbox 360 – 4,244 PS2 – 2,179 Media Create hardware sales (9/21 – 9/27) DSi – 63,342 PS3 – 39,960 PSP – 17,334 DS Lite – 15,057 Wii – 11,731 Xbox 360 – 4,854 PS2 – 2,347 So the PS3 only dropped 2k, and the Wii had its reported 3x increase.
The last week sales comparison has been fixed now.
A nice bump for the Wii but not remotely close to the 151k Sony got with the PS3 price drop. Nintendo has to be realizing the Wii is rapidly losing momentum.
So the Wii's price drop really didn't do too much. But seeing as there's like 8 million Wii's in Japan already, everyone probably already has one.
people here are actually downplaying the wii's price cut? dudes, the ps3 was selling sub-10k in japan before the slim. i understand you are all ecstatic about its phenomenal sales, but sheesh tone it down. the ps3 slim is a re-launch of the playstation 3 brand name. combined with high caliber software releases, its not wonder its doing well and will do so for the rest of the year. but to compared it to wii, who hasn't had, nor needed, much advertisement nor radical image changes, the slight bump isn't that strange.
"am i reading things right? people here are actually downplaying the wii's price cut? " I don't think anybody's downplaying it. But come on, the Wii used to sell 60k+ alone back when it was still the hot new thing. But after a price drop, you would think they should be selling more than 35k.
Wonder how NSMB will do for hardware.
Yeah but the good news is that Xbox360 is outselling PS2 by 2k!! /sarcasm :)
So Famitsu was more accurate this time, they reported 37k for PS3. Still I expected more of a drop due to the Wii price cut. I think the Wii hype is dying now, everyone who wanted one has already bought one if the price cut only boosted sales to 35k. Even PS3 went higher than that when it got a high profile game even with it's high price. Wait and see what happens December 17.
The Wii/PSP estimates reported by Ascii Media Works weren't too far off, apparently.
DSi – 53,293 PSP – 51,215 PS3 – 37,538 Wii – 35,392 DS Lite – 10,661 Xbox 360 – 4,244 PS2 – 2,179 Congrats to the failbox for outselling the PS2. :P @Saaking: Who the hell bubble raped you?
What's sad is, at the rate it's going, the 360 will be 99 bucks just like the PS2. Well, they are both last gen systems.
Ahhhhhh! Saaking, my beer just came out of my nose! Ha ha , funny as hell.
This is great for PS3! It actually managed to outsell the wii on the week of the wii's price cut. The wii will most likely see a sales drop next week. (the price cut will not have as big of an effect). So the PS3 has held of a wii price cut and a 360 price cut in Japan. Nice timing sony. Maybe you can pull your #%@! together after all.
Xbox 360 – 4,244 LOL.
It's always around 4K. I wonder if it's just the same guys. Buying a new 360 every week since the previous ones red ringed.
Looks like the PS3 is gonna stay at around 50k for the next few weeks until another increase when FFXIII comes. So far it's selling 200k a month which is the same the 360 sells in NA. Considering they sell the same in Europe you could say: 360= 200k (NA) + 15k (Jap)= 215k PS3= 200k (NA) + 200k (Jap)= 400k I thought Japan didn't matter? Spin that bots.
...flop time. http://www.sankakucomplex.c...
are the bots have they got in there caves xbox36o in last place ps3 on top of the hill finalfantasy 13 says hi to flopza
the ps3 holding at the 35-40K mark not bad at all.Also congrats to the Wii 300% increase in sales very good.I thought it would wipe the floor considering its only 200$.Cant wait to see what the PS3 will sell like when it hits 200$.I can see 100K average numbers a week from then on for the PS3.And launch week 300K+ PS.I think Wii may be finely showing how outdated it is.Which it was even when it launched.
lol, look at the 360 go. I guess there's a bright side its selling more than a 10 year old console.
Bu!!! Bu!!!! Alan Wake!!!! Bu!!! Bu!!! Natal!!!
