Now that the final Media Create hardware report for October has been released, the total hardware totals for the month have been calculated.
Looks like all sales were down this month for the most part.
XBOX 360 bottom of the list
128K is not bad at all for the PS3 even after the Wii had the price drop, it couldn't outsell the PS3 so that shows the sign of what to expect in the future.... 15K for 360 in 1 month bad bad bad... Outsold by more than 100K lol.
Why bother talking about the Xbox360 in Japan. In December it will be a distant memory.
Why poke fun at the Xbox 360 at all. We all know it doesn't do anything in Japan, so why point out the obvious as if it's the first time Xbox sold low numbers in Japan. Lose the fanboy in you, and enjoy gaming.

With the 360 numbers at such low, I think Microsoft should just give up selling in Japan. There is more loss in the marketing department than what they would actually make with a measly 15000 units sold in a month.
The DSi is in its own laws of physics and still dominating the market over there. >_>
You would think that MS is spending more on adverts and shipping than what they are bringing in with the 360 sales in Japan. That being said, they need to just stop now and pour the resources into other foreign markets.
Ok just because, so called game journalist attacked the PS3 doesn't mean people should attack the 360. MS had a slight rise because of the price drop, and it had two exclusive JRPG's come out around that time so of course it had a chance not to mention the PS3 was still $400 back then. So why act like this was hurting you, especially when you have NOTHING invested in Sony. Love the games, not the company, because both companies care more about your dollar. Sony's just putting out more quality.
wait was the ps3 price drop this month or last month? im being serious
I think you're confusing the Wii price drop, which Media Create took note of 3 weeks ago. That's why Wii sales went up a bit this month.
Ps3 price cut was in Sept. Sony is still holding strong.
Yeah, but this data was for October. I thought knox was wondering about the impact of the price drops this month. Wasn't the PS3 price drop at the beginning of September?
Yep, and the Wii price drop was this month. Overall, like you said, it's a great month for Sony and Nintendo.
Wow the wii almost double its sales from last month. and the Psp had one big increase as well. @disagree O'rly?
because you said O'rly ? :p
your edit doesn't change the fact you initially wrote: "That is one massive drop". Personally I didn't know what you were referring too but obviously the 12 people that disagreed with you (12 so far) did know.
That console had a good run... oh wait, no it didn't.
Yep 360s dead. totally.
haha, serial couldn't take the heat? Huh? You send me an insult and block me, very brave of you. You're one funny bot aren't ya? FYI, PS3 #1 in Sales AND Quality.
No, you got a ban because you didn't follow the rules. I was banned from the gamerzone for 1 month and I didn't complain. Suck it up bot.
PS3- 128,642 Fail box-FAIL >15,702< FAIL so much for the bots saying Japan doesn't matter. hahaha, 360 was dead on arrival. Well, at least it managed to beat the 9 year old last gen PS2.
PS3 has been kicking ass in Exclusives Games and now it kicks ass in Sales As Well. now what more is left that would make Xbox Fans realize that it Over. (Though It never Began)
In the past months DSi is in 1st or 2nd position. Seriously, how many DSi do Japanese gamers need ? Are they collecting all the colors ?
hmmm month on month, since the $100 pricedrop AND slim sku, ps3 sales have fallen by 57%. so much for the initial momentum.... This week's Japanese figures are just under 30k weekly, same as last week. Thus, we might say that for the moment, ps3 sales have been dropping but have now plateaued, in Japan. Anybody know at what level worldwide weekly plateaued ps3 sales are? With this info we could do some calculations to see how long it will take the ps3 to catch up, using realistic figures? I am thinking 2011/2012. Any takers? ----------------------------- ---------- edit: lol at the disagrees. All i am doing is stating facts and asking questions to generate discussion. What's there to disagree with?
Because your spin puts a washing machine to shame
60fps spin? Fluid and life-like :D
^ More like 30fps spin with a whole bunch of screen tear.
Of course there were massive drops, you can't expect the PS3 to keep selling 150K weekly. The big thing to notice is that, as you pointed out, the PS3 is settling at 30K, which is 3X the amount it sold weekly for the rest of the year. The end of the year will be very interesting. Both the Wii and the PS3 have serious potential to come out as the best selling home console in Japan this year. Right now, it's like a 60K difference. Both consoles have massive line ups in December(Wii with TOG, NSMBW, SW3 and PS3 with FF13). It's gonna be a dog fight up until then.
Well the PS3 sells around 30k in Japan, 80k in the US, and 100k - 110k in Europe weekly so give or take 210 - 220k per week (215k since it's the average). Xbox 360 does an average of around 4k in Japan, 80k in US, and dropped to around 60k in Europe weekly giving a total of 144k (round up to 145k). PS3- 215 * 52 (weeks in a year for the slow) = 11.18 million 360- 145 * 52 (weeks in a year for the slow) = 7.54 million difference of = 3.64 million So based off my calculations the PS3 will be at 37mil by November 1, 2010, and the 360 should be at 39.5 million pushing close to 40. Therefore, if everything continues the PS3 should take second place from the Xbox 360 by November 1, 2011. I say should, because holiday sales numbers are always more than the average month which means it could happen sooner. But I guess holiday numbers are balanced out by dry months where console number drop overall so Nov. 1, 2011 still stands. But I'm not a psychic so I can't tell what may happen and change things in the future. First off MS isn't going to sit by and take it, their going to do whatever they can to stop Sony. Maybe another Xbox 360 price drop, or a YLOD epidemic for the PS3 (both of which seem unlikely unless a price drop occurs when Natal comes out). But those are the numbers take it for what it's worth "absolutely nothing". The only thing these number show is that the PS3 is on track to take second place from the 360, as long as MS does nothing about it. And because of those number expect MS to drop their new console Fall of 2012 ensuring that they win this generation (even if it's the cheap way and kind of a cop out). MS ends this generation with 54.6 million consoles sold (I'm betting 50 million is their goal before they decide that's the year for their new console which should be 2012.) At that time Sony should have sold 59.6 million consoles as long as MS doesn't try anymore. So yeah new Xbox in 2012 for sure (2 years for Natal). There I guess I'm an analyst now, Patcher step your game up.
It's a battle between the PS3 and Wii, PSP and DSi, Xbox360 and PS2. :)
awesome sony still keeping the sales up even though i dont care but its good to know that the bots are getting beat in every category ;)
Sony is fail Teh Xbox360 managed to sell more than PS2 !!! (( what a bot would say ))
