Hardware sales estimates for Media Create data are now available in advance of numbers that will be officially revealed tomorrow.
These were the Media Create numbers last week: PSP - 145,682 Wii - 76,772 PS3 - 61,591 DSi - 50,178 DSi LL - 45,221 DS Lite - 10,067 Xbox 360 - 5,461 PS2 - 3,092 PSP go - 2,841 If the estimated figures stick, then...Well, that's clearly a big drop.
the PS3 is getting back to the 30K again... Why is the Wii still selling so much, is people buying 3 Wii's to go along their 7 DS's??! Ridiculous!
yeah microsoft is lucky for north america mostly america i think canada is more ps3 but dont really know for sure.....
Wii 55,300 PS3 33,400 someone explain no need to explain this Xbox 360 4,800
its the Wii? lol edit. this could explain it [WII] Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles – 73,000 / NEW
Super Mario Bros Wii.
MS might aswell close up shop out in Japan
M$ needs to pull the ripcord on the 360 in japan
They forgot the ripcord on the plane, so they are pretty much done for.
Why should they , they sold over 1 million 360's ... Almost doubling the amount of the first Xbox , MS knew they wouldn't win Japan , I'm sure they are happy with the progress they made .... Maybe not much but come next gen ... They will most likely double the 360 sales ....
i think natal may be able to boost sales a bit in japan even if only for a few weeks or months because i think the japanese market is into stuff like natal only time will tell i guess
there's a limit for being optimistic you know. M$ has spent god knows how much to break into the Japanese market and plus the exclusive JRPG deals, I don't think that they are "happy" the 360 sold just a mere 1mil+ after more than 4 years trying!
i don't live in japan, but the area in asia where i live most people here buy the 360 because it's simple to mod and you can buy bootleg games for 2 dollars.
This isn't the numbers it is how much they dropped this week to last.
what the heck are you talking about, are you saying that those numbers are how much each console dropped from last week so wii dropped 55k and ps3 dropped 33k from last week? you realize that last week wii sold 76k and ps3 sold 61k...so by your logic, that would mean that YOU think wii sold 20k and ps3 sold 32k? and xbox sold like 1k (after differences) lmao...where did you come up with that theory? was it just cause the wii and ps3 numbers were real low for this week, and you thought that they sold in the 100k+ last week or something
they are estimates
But no, ign said sony should cancel psp....ign my FAVORITE site ever
did ign really say that? if so, that's really stupid of them. The psp is nowhere close to being a failure. Compared to the ds it's sales figures don't look extremely high but when you take into account that nintendo has had the handheld market on lock since the early 90's the psp shows that there is a capable competitor when it comes to handhelds.
"They will most likely double the 360 sales in japan .... " no just no anyway the 360's really.............doing...... ..........something XD LOL
Sad how PS3 cant beat Wii. When Natal releases, one of these consoles might give up hope.
What? Why is that sad? Nobody can beat the Wii, that's just the way it is. Wii appeal to a non-gamer market, it appeals to people who never bought, played, or enjoyed a videogame in their life (my parents included in that set). It's no wonder that videogame consoles like the PS3 and 360, which only appeal to actual gamers (a significantly smaller set than non-gamers which has the potential to include EVERYONE), have trouble outselling the Wii.
"Wii appeal to a non-gamer market, it appeals to people who never bought, played, or enjoyed a videogame in their life (my parents included in that set)." The wii was designed to appeal to lapsed gamers as well and so your statement is provably false. Every nintendo interview pretty much states this. A lot of wii gamers quit at ps1 and came back for it. I went to PC gaming until the wii.
What's your point? It also appeals to gamers. Lapsed gamers, gamers, non-gamers. It doesn't change the fact that the Wii appeals to non-gamers, that is to say that it appeals to people who were never interested in games before. And lapsed gamers count as a sort of subset of non-gamers because if they weren't playing games at the time that the Wii came out, then that means at that time they were non-gamers. Also it doesn't matter who Nintendo intends the console to appeal to, the fact is that it appeals to all sorts of people, even those that weren't playing games when the Wii came out but now are playing the Wii. That appeal is what makes it capable of consistently selling more than PS3 and 360 combined. It appeals to more than just the same gamer set that was buying consoles last generation. It's pretty simple.
What's up with the disagrees? Everything I've said is undeniably factual. Or perhaps it was all part of our collective imagination that the Wii has sold more than the 360 + PS3 combined?
It always dip in sales after the holidays.
Its time to buy another wii!
