Media Create has finally published the latest hardware sales figures from Japan, which were delayed due to the holidays.
Still pretty big numbers for the Wii this week. PS3 dropped, but many people were expecting that since FFXIII sales were down. The PSP numbers might be the most surprising - Perhaps people are gearing up for Kingdom Hearts.
but what is driving Wii sales so high?
someone should call Sherlock homes
I would say the italian midget is driving the sales so high, doesn't this buddy have a new game now?
Guys, isn't that cuz of the new Mario Game? "PSP go – 4,192" PLEASE SONY, CUT THE PRICE OF THE GO!!! At this point all of us can say that PS2 is LEGEND
WE KIND OF NEED SOME ps3 is doom articles as im gettin really bored, playing some serious gaming. joke but on a serious note WOWii LOOK THAT TOY GO
PS3 had a big drop, but still 100k is impressive and a lot more than the 40k usual.
Pretty nice numbers for nintendo but I got to say a lil disappointed by numbers for ps3 considering it was a holiday season and final fantasy XIII release its almost as equal as psp and pspgo is not even worth mentioning.
FF13 sales couldn't be consistent, this is not something new, it happen with every FF game and the numberz are Good knowing +1.5m PS3 owners already have the game on the +4m userbase
Luckily non of these concerned me so i'm not too worried about the delay.
The Wii is still going strong... One of Life's greatest mysteries
holiday season and PRICE.
Yet another solid sales figure for Nintendo Wii.
So, who won the year? Must have been the Wii by a small margin, right?
Not sure about the whole year, but I have the numbers for the period since the launch of the PS3 slim. 8/31 - 12/27: PS3 - 1,112,051 Wii - 1,006,045 So if the Wii didn't outsell the PS3 by more than 100,000 during the year leading up to September, then the PS3 outsold the Wii this year. I don't have those numbers, though, but I do recall that the PS3 was ahead for most of the year, too, if memory serves correctly. The PS3 beat the Wii during most of the weeks in the first few months of the year, then the Wii started beating the PS3 during the middle of the year before the PS3 made a comeback in September. What the totals are for those first 8 months, I don't know. If anyone has the numbers, let me know please!
thanks to Chinese again.
woww, same people buy the 360s again?
lol.. japaneses still buy the wii.. pathetic this ;)
Americans still buy the xbox360...how pathetic as well.
Look at THOSE SALES! Or maybe they're expecting to prepare for the next Zelda and SMG2. -Go Figure?
PS3 has outsold the 360 by over 1 million in Japan since September. Pretty impressive. Wonder what the real, true worldwide life-to-date sales are of the two consoles right now? I guess we'll have a more clear idea when the end of the fiscal year reports come out for Sony and Microsoft.
