Famitsu's latest hardware numbers have been released a bit later than usual this week. See how Famitsu's figures compare to Media Create data.
PS3 pulling away from the wii this week which is good! (IMO)
the battle of the DVD: Xbox 360 – 2,800 PS2 – 2,600
That's not a battle, 360 destroyed the PS2 in sales this week!
Wow, the PS3 is still ahead by a lot. Looks like the wii is really fading out now. The 360 is just sad right now, barely beating the PS2.
The 360 isn't sad, the crowd that dosent by it is....
Odd how different Famitsu's 360 figures are versus Media Creates. It's almost a 50% difference. All the other consoles are tracked much closer to Media Creates numbers. Anyway, why do Famitsu and Media Create always come up with different numbers? Seems odd. Which one is considered more accurate, if either?
Media crate is more reliable.
I wonder why Famitsu's PS3 numbers are always so low.
I remember how when 360 had a one week sales spike in Japan after Square Enix's released The Last Remnant, M$ sent out a bunch of press releases bragging about 360 sales in Japan and claiming they won Japan! HAHA! That was the last time we heard M$ brag about Japan sales...
The wii is fading? Really? I guess still being worldwide number 1 whilst 'fading' just showed how dominant it was then! Anyway on topic, Sony have really boosted sales of the ps3 permenantley in Japan. Well done to them it is genuinely impressive :)
I prefer media create because Sony and Nintendo use it for their figures for Japanese sales.
the point is the wii is not selling as much as it use to. I.e seems like it's fading. Not dead by any means.
ioi has wii numbers abovee ps3 for the last 2 weeks lmfao. he is cutting about 5000 ps3 in japan each week. this is a joke
@cmrbe I totally get the point I just think it is a bit disrespectful seeing as the wii is still up there selling well. And really it hasn't faded in Japan at all it has sold at this rate for a year or so. Now the ps3 has improved sales people seemed to be noticing the wii now though. EDIT @IRA Actually the only week ioi has had the wii infront of the ps3 was last week if you actually bother to check without making silly statements! Last week he did cut 5,000 off the ps3 though but he also did it to the wii. Thats the only week I can find that happening though.
guess what, it's pp! that guy is still trying to spread BS, this time at nintendoeverything! I found that hillarious! and for those who asked, famitsu get their numbers from VGChartz if I'm not mistaken.
Microsoft might as well give up Japan. That's embarrassing.
Wow....I know MS has more money than anyone but is it worth staying in Japan when you're barely outselling Sony's last-gen console?
"the battle of the DVD: Xbox 360 – 2,800 PS2 – 2,600" lol so hard, thanks man you made my entire week If you want lol even more, read the fist comment
Famitsu's data was actually quite different than Media Create. Pretty much all of the figures were off (DS Lite was underestimated by about two times Media Create's data), although the Wii number was on target.
PS3 – 31,000 Xbox 360 – 2,800 PS2 – 2,600 BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Yes, Japan sales = Overall Sales.
No, but combined with US and European sales, PS3 is destroying the 360. You= fail.
Rest In P!SS!!! ;-D (As good old King Kaz used to say on this!!!) ;) 31,000 PS3's... ;-P
Hey chris. 360 Sales in the U.S= the world You bots are pathetic.
Lol okay Saaking #2, looks like you're an avid 360 player as well.
Nothing new here people PS3 (the TRUE high definition gaming console) at Number 1 and the failbox battling it out with last gen PS2.
aww the PC port box not doing so well... not surprised.
That PS3 keeps on going..
pals, this fanboy shtty war got bored since the ps3 is now for sure the winner of this next gen console.., all the 360 tardboys has refrained themselves, no more laugh here. w/e need to see the xbox far behind from the ps3 no sales, till that this continue. but i applaud to you microsoft, u did will young disciple.
http://www.n4g.com/News-398... I can't believe i'm quoting kotaku: "Face it: the Xbox 360 isn’t quite up to snuff. The design is flawed, leading to an abnormal number of machines konking out. Since Microsoft won’t reveal the details of what exactly is causing the problems, Japanese news source Nikkei had a thermal design expert analyze the 360’s heat radiation system. Two Xbox 360’s were used for the investigation: one purchased in 2005, and the other that was repaired in May 2007. Their findings? • The temperature gap with room temp was 22 degrees C. “When designing consumer products, it is common to seek a temperature gap of around 10 degrees C between exhaust and room temperatures,” the thermal design expert said. “The 22 degrees C is quite a large gap…” • The cooling fan was half of desktop PCs — apparently to reduce noise. • The expert pointed out, “The heat sink on the graphics LSI is so small, I wonder if it can really cool down the board.” The reason for this? Apparently, Microsoft had to downsized graphics LSI heat sink so that the DVD drive could be placed above it. • In five minutes after booting up a game, the graphic LSI heat sink temp rose to 70 degrees C. In 15 minutes, the temperature for the microprocessor heat sink stabilized at 58 degrees, but the graphics LSI heat sink reached 80 degrees C. If the room temperature was high (like 35 degrees C), the heat sink could possibly hit 100 degrees C. What’s more, if the vents were clogged with dust, the temperature could also increase. • The console repaired in May 2007 did not have a new heat sink placed in it. This is bad design. Really, really bad."
Every one in Japan has a wii.
only 8 mio wii are sold. ps2 sold over 20 mio there
this is funny
Good to see Nintendo still dominates Japan. After all they moved more hardware over all. I guess it is time to call the Wii a failure though... Selling around the same level as PS3 and we all know what a complete failure it is... right guys?
Keep spinning ;) also as Elvfam511 said, you FAIL at math. =D
"Good to see Nintendo still dominates Japan. After all they moved more hardware over all. I guess it is time to call the Wii a failure though... Selling around the same level as PS3 and we all know what a complete failure it is... right guys?" Nin = 72700 Sony = 73600
Anyways, keep spinning ;) ------------ Should be easy that. Just follow playstation fanboys lead in sales articels for the last 3 years ;)
It's not a complete failure, but with a $50 price cut world wide, it's the only console this generation that got a price cut but with no massive influx of sales to go with it.
Seems like 360 is worst selling out of the 3 in any given continent (Japan), but they make up for it in USA tho, Jap was always their worste market.
Console gaming just seems to be slowly dying in Japan. It's amazing how much better handhelds do there than consoles week over week.
size of a console is a selling point in japan. I think the size reduction of ps3 had more effect on the sales increase in japan than the price reduction.
