Media Create has published the latest hardware sales figures from Japan, including official DSi LL data.
DSi ll is what i call milking hardware. look at that list, there are 3 different ds's on there.
"there are 3 different ds's on there." Yes, because the DS can survive more than the PSP. Sony developed: -PSP 1000 (Fat) -PSP 2000 -PSP 3000 -PSP Go 4 models Nintendo developed: -DS Fat -DS Lite -DSi -DSi LL 4 models If Nintendo is milking, Sony is milking as well.
Will the Wii ever beat the PS3 again?
If its beating the wii now, what will happen when Final Fantasy XIII comes out only on ps3 in Japan, or when GT5 and God of war 3 come out next year. Not to talk of unforeseen exclusives, new ips and sleeper hits (Demons souls 2 any one...) that might be coming out in the future. Trey all the way..
Well the wii's sold more this week than last week, while the ps3 has sold less, so who can tell really.
That's one explanation for the bump.
@sunnygrg I don't know but I don't think so. FFXIII is coming but we will have to see what happens when DQX is launched for the Wii. @sikbeta I was showing that Sony developed 4 models just like Nintendo did with the DS but they aren't milking in my opinion.
Both of you what the HELL are you talking about PSP different redesign models and DS as well, not milking here, you make it sound like if both are Activision products lol "PS3 – 34,752 Wii – 32,844" Well that's good considering there isn't a game that JAPAN is REALLY interested, you know they have different tastes like giant boobs, good RPGs, Niche tittles... like ME in some way We'll see what happen in December, is not gonna be a surprise either, JAPAN love FF series...
Well, it's official. The PS3 has outsold the 360 in Japan by over half a million since September. Totals 08/31/09 - 11/22/09: PS3 - 585,020 Wii - 309,875 360 - 58,851
This is twice Famitsu estimated the PS3 and Wii were tied only to discover later they were off the mark.
PS3 is still #1. Sony must be very pleased.
I think its the Japanese public that are milking the cow. The companies are just providing the source. The Japanese dont need to milk nor drink it, yet they choose too. Who blaims Sony and Nintendo.... I know I would do the same if I owned one of the two companies?
the psp ones are hardware revisions ok fine, I admit that ds to dsi is a hardware revision, but dsi to dsi LL... come on...
Mean nothing here.
Are you serious?
NA sales mean nothing anywhere but NA EU sales maen nothing anywhere but EU ...oh yea except Sony/MS/NiN all have corporations in all regions so it DOES matter to them how well they are selling in other places of the world because if one does bad its not good for business overall.
A: Because you don't live THERE and B: Because they not play teh shooterz like NA(you think only play shooters) and Europe (you think is not Variety Friend) DO Let me say this: ----------------------------- -----lol----------------------- ------------
Almost all of the beloved franchises are Japanese. Yes it does matter. If it didn't then say good-bye to Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, Tekken, Metal Gear, Lost Planet,....oh man i cant list every one of them you know.
Micro$oft is doing well in the battle of the dvd consoles. 3415 of these were probably replacements.
Actually the 360 is getting creamed in the battle of the DVD consoles.....the "Wii optical disc" is a 4.7/8.54gb DVD-based disc. :)
PS3 – 34,752 Xbox 360 – 4,085 <----- fail
I guarantee at least 80,000 of those people are previous DS owners ... which begs the question ... why?!
I don't know, that's possible, but Nintendo was mainly appealing to the older gamer with this iteration. But, the main change is the bigger screens.
No different than a PSP owner picking up a PSPGo when they already have the older model or a PS3 Slim when they have the fatty. Some folks just like to upgrade.
Actually is more than ReBurn is saying, JAPAN love different colors for handhelds You don't remember a couple of months ago, when Electric-BLue PSP was dominating the Hardware List
PS3 sales are pretty consistent. Looks like Sony made the right choice with the new model.
Maybe MS is having Supply problems in Japan?
the PS2...lmao Surprised that the Wii didn't outsell the PS3 due to Super Mario Bros. Keep it going PS3!
New Super Mario Bros. Wii hasn't released in Japan yet.
already over saturated in Japan. The software might sell well, but the console is a different story.
If PS3 is winning why are all the Nintendo products in bold? I always thought the bold figures were the ones with most sales?
I put the Nintendo systems in bold since those are the products our main visitors care the most about. Basically want to make it easier to read for them. But no, it's not out of arrogance or hatred for other systems, believe me.
I don't know if you noticed but the site is called 'Nintendo Everything'. That may be a clue to the answer.
Sorry, didn't notice the site. I wasn't trying to accuse you or come off militant myself, but again, just wondering :)
Christ, the people in Japan are such fukcing sheep when it comes to Nintendo's hardware revisions, its just sad
I dunno, in NA people buy multiple 360's that keep breaking. Who's the bigger idiot?
lol good one. Bubble +.
you just got SERVED.
lmfao at the 360.
Oh + Europe to!!! ;-D Hmm...even in the U.S.of.A they are LAST in SALES now!!! ;-D
and nintendo better luck i guess next time for m$ maybe m$ should conctrete on other parts of the world and get out of japan while they can
This has nothing to do with the 360 and somehow the sony fanboys turned in sales numbers against the 360. Im keepin an unofficial track here and seems that the sony fanboys are 99% of the time starting these "flamewars". MS has nothing to do with this article.
The ps3 is [email protected] this holiday.
its a shame though.....i guess the japanese are'nt as easily fooled
sony could be doing better seeing as this is the holiday season...cmon next gen monster hunter
