The video game hardware sales data in Japan for the week ending on October 25th, according to Media Create.
is loosing it appeal in Japan. Even with a price cut, it still cannot outsell the PS3
SMB wii will probably give it a boost again, but FFXIII will Push PS3 sales to new heights over there.
Japan has made their choice and it was the right one. With the imminent release of FFXIII exclusively on PS3 in Japan, Sony has taken over the homeland yet again. PS3 FTW EDIT: @below: good job comparing a portable 1/3 the price of the PS3. Of course it's gonna sell more, not toe mention that Portables are extremely popular in Japan.
it doesn't take an analyst to know that FFXIII will have a big impact in Japan
Yeah, the PS3 has held solid at 30,000 a week for a over a month now, that's good, I don't think it's going down anytime soon. With holiday sales in November, FFXIII in December, and the fact that over half of the games on the Famitsu most-wanted list are PS3 games means interest is staying high for the PS3 over in Japan.
How the hell is the PS3 still outselling the Wii? I NEVER expected it to carry on for this long.
You guys are missing the most interesting part of the numbers.....the 360 had a MASSIVE jump of 808 consoles!
PlayStation 3. It only does everything, including outsell the Wii. PlayStation 3 - 29,977 Nintendo Wii - 25,917 Xbox 360 - 4,470 :)
Serial, personal attacks are not permitted. Since you put a high price on comprehension, try reading the rules. Open Zone ===>
Serial_EX There are 6 billion people on this planet, I hardly believe Wii has sold anywhere near it.. but everyone understands what you are saying, so relax dude.
@above, no but its doesn't make sense to sell 40,000 consoles every week forever since release date does it. Everything starts to slow in sells, if you don't understand that, theres something wrong with you. BTW 6 billion people in the world don't all make enough money to even pay for food, let alone a console, maybe 1 billion of them do, and about 1/4 of them like electronics and even less of them would even buy a system to play games on.
Ps3 still killing it. Sheesh FF13 is gonna murder.
Hey JAPAN: (don't take this serious)
Morganfell, Funny how you called out 'serial' for 'personal attacks, yet you forgot to do the same for 'prabx' above? Double standards much?
wow PS3 is beating XBOX 360 by alot in Japan and Europe... Suddenly xbox 360 lost its appeals. Commodore64, it's not double standard, but i see morganfell get the same deleted by mod treatment too.
The PS3 is actually holding up really good. How many weeks has it been maintaining 30K units? Bravo
i didnt know morgan could comment on stuff that hadnt been said at the time.... Its obvious you just have an axe to grind. double standards you say
No commodore, it is not a double standard. I'll provide the simple explanation and then you can provide the apology. I had been playing Uncharted 2 and took a break to peruse the board. I read the comments in this thread and responded. Shortly thereafter I left the article and only a little time after I logged off the site and went back to Uncharted 2. Since I was not here when prabx posted his remarks it is nigh impossible for me to have commented upon on them. Attacking me over my lack of psychic abilities is somewhat absurd. For someone that follows people around the board hounding them in the manner which you do with darkride it is hardly fitting for you to point out any such semblance of misconduct by anyone else on this board. It is even more ridiculous when my only foul is lack of clairvoyance in having not been in the middle of Uncharted 2 and suddenly jumped and yelled, "Oh my god! prabx just posted a comment!" Since I was not here when Booth shot Lincoln, am I still guilty for not reporting that when it occurred?
@ morganfell, yet, now that you have had the time to read prabx's comments (and mine) you chose to reply to me, but STILL failed to call out prabx! Dude, if you want to call out fanboys, that's fine. But at least be consistent. Your lack of 'clairvoyance' excuse above fails, because you subsequently had more than adequate opportunity to address prabx. Thus you have morgan'failed' to be consistent, even when given the subsequent opportunity, all the while telling everyone concurrently that you didn't have said opportunity. Instead of giving me excuses, why not just call out prabx? That would have made it so simple. But that's ok. Another Morganfell double standard, right? ;)
P L A Y S T A T I O N 3
Thats beautiful man :*(. I almost cried .
what the hell?? beautiful ?? how?? almost cries?? HUH??!!!!! dude if you gonna cry on that, u seriously have a playstation 3 obsession. and this actually comes from a PS3 fanboy.
chill out it was a joke
People are getting ready for FF13
ff13 will kill the wii in japan.
PS3 FTW. Still #1.
I guess the PS3 price drop affects a whole bunch of stuffs, huh ? Damn you PS3, why do you have to kill your older brother ? :(
Actually its number 3.
hahaha, man you're one dumb bot. PS3-29,977 WIN Failbox- 4,470 FAIL Can't put it any simpler for your tiny brain. EDIT: Checked your history. You're not a bad as the other, but nevertheless still a bot. And like I said before, portables are bound to sell more because they're 1. More popular in Japan 2. CHEAPER. The PS3 is the #1 best selling console. The Failbox is in last barely beating out the PS2, a nine year old system. There's a reason (actually many reasons) why people call it the failbox.
What makes you think I care where the 360 is, You twit, Look at my comments, I'M NOT A BOT, or are you really that stupid to label anyone who disagrees with you a 360 only owner. And you must really be a idiot, since the list show Nintendo DSi - 42,199 PSP - 32,865 Playstation 3 - 29,977 Nintendo Wii - 25,917 Nintendo DS Lite - 6,550 Xbox 360 - 4,470 Playstation 2 - 1,951 Mean PS3 is 3rd best selling system of the week, >.> or is that math to hard for you. XD *edit* so anyone who says one thing good about the 360 is a bot to you. Wow you are the most pathetic piece of Sh-t I've ever heard of, You know, its sad you have to use multiple accounts just so you can please yourself.
You sure know how to aggravate bots with your comments, they must hate you. But here have a bubble, nothing you say isn't true and it also makes me laugh.
I Serial is saddened by this news Saaking. :(
HOME Games Consoles = PS3 + Wii + xBox 360??? Anyway - PlayStation 3 - 29,977 TOP!!! ;-P Nintendo Wii - 25,917 MIDDLE!!! Xbox 360 - 4,470 BOTTOM!!! ;-D + Last 'Month' in the U.S.of.A - PlayStation 3 - 491.8K TOP!!! ;-P + it's $299 Wii - 462.8K MIDDLE Xbox 360 - 352.6K BOTTOM!!!...AGAIN!!!... ;-D + it's only $199!!! WTF!!! FAIL!!! ;-D
30K is your new weekly best friend Keep whooping Wii's ass like this and pretty soon you'll take back your rightful throne
but I wouldn't call 4k "whooping Wii's ass", more like both are having pretty good sales this far after the price drop. In other news 360 is sales rose but still very low in comparison, lol
Wow Sony looked like a monopoly looking at that chart with their psp, ps3, and ps2. only competition being the Wii which isn't in the same HD gaming market.
The Xbox 360's sales doubled while the PS2's sales went down! 360 will be the one to kill PS2! /sarcasm
PS3 is kicking arse.
Great numbers for PS3. Whats great is that they are steady and only likely to go up with christmas and FF coming. People keep saying sales spike, but isnt a spike a sudden rise, followed by a sudden drop? Looks more like around 30K is the new plateau.
It sold less than half as much than it did the month before. Yeah, that's a pretty quick drop just month by month.
Also take into consideration that the Wii hasn't been able to beat the PS3 and many weeks.
"Funny part is you won't even say a thing about the DSI with last gen cartridge technology beating your AMAZING ps3. XD rofl the life and denial of ps3 fanboys." but as saaking said it's a REVISED portable device against a $300 console. so your're point is sh!t.
FFXIII will no doubt push the PS3 even more. Great times for Sony.
Wow i am still surprised PS3 continues to outsell wii even with a price cut for nearly a month now. Wii can't seem to get anything going in japan,PS3 has a good chance to beat them good and seriously compete with them.
Good going for the PS3 but good Lord, the DSi is a beast.
november-3d dot game heroes december-final fantasy 13 january-ar tonelico 3 february-star ocean 4 spring-yakuza 4
to see the wii not on top, guess it was only luck for the console then ;) ps3 is doing well, the japanese people wanted a pricecut it seems.
Lol imagine when the PS3 gets to $200 it'll be destruction. System Sellars remaining... FFXIII Tekken 6 FFV13 GT5 anything else I missed?
