Media Create has published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
the wii just keeps dieing a little bit more every week
Here's the numbers: Valay «-» October 13, 2010 «-» PS3, 360, Wii, DS, PSP, News «-» 0 comments PSP – 33,683 DSi – 22,301 DSi LL – 21,777 PS3 – 19,948 Wii – 12,158 DS Lite – 5,960 Xbox 360 – 2,746 PS2 – 1,373 PSP go – 1,191 For comparison’s sake, here are the hardware numbers from last week. PSP – 37,088 DSi – 24,937 DSi LL – 24,246 PS3 – 20,363 Wii – 13,360 DS Lite – 5,707 Xbox 360 – 2,769 PS2 – 1,247 Is it safe to say the PS Move has had no impact at all on ps3 sales?
Move doesn't come out in Japan until October 21st.
Yeah it is. Cause it is, as postofficebuddy said, not out there yet.
lol Commodore64 owned again! XD
awwwww silly billy.
Is it safe to say 785days of practice have had no impact at all on commodore64's trolling skills?
lol major fail ^^
OMFG way to fail... http://www.straferight.com/...
Wait a minute, How did commodore64 fail? Move comes out in October (a couple of weeks) in Japan yet sales are declining. Are you all trying to tell me that anyone in Japan that may be interested in Move are NOT going to buy a PS3 until Move is released? Don't you think that there would be...I don't know, SOME kind of excitement or anticipation within Japan to actually spark sales leading up and passing the release date of Move? The figures show a decline in PS3 sales. That means there is no steady increase for Move. If that is the case, anticipation for Move is not causing any current sale spikes for the PS3. commodore64 isn't wrong here. The Move in Japan (which launches in a couple of weeks) is not causing enough excitement or anticipation to boost sales leading up the the Moves release date.
@TheMAxx It is pretty clear why Commodore fails. For PSMOVE to "move" consoles the hardware needs to be out. People will buy it, most probably, bundled. Besides he could have, at least, waited for the device to release before jumping to conclusions. Perhaps commodore thought MOVE was already out.
"Perhaps commodore thought MOVE was already out." True, he could have. But you are speculating that that was his mistake. Unfortunately he only has 1 bubble so he can't explain himself. Regarding your comment "For PSMOVE to "move" consoles the hardware needs to be out." I don't agree with that. Anticipation for MOVE could still spark sales before release since it's only a couple of weeks off. Now you could be right that everyone is waiting for the bundle. But I just find it unlikely that so many consumers in Japan are waiting for a bundled PS3 with Move that it will have a noticeable spike in PS3 sales. Move was just announced recently and I don't think many Japaneese gamers were sitting and thinking "I would only buy a PS3 if a motion controller was available for it". Most likely the market already has the PS3's and will buy MOVE as an addition. I don't see Japan's sales having any kind of PS3 sales spike due to MOVE being bundled with it. I don't see the Japanese consumer finally buying a $300 PS3 now that a motion controller is out while they can get a Wii (the most dominant console on the market) for their motion control fix. Only time will tell. Lets see what happens.
Sigh, this is why shouldn't use 'sales' as any type of measurement of quality or success. As commodore64 goes to show above, you end up looking like a fool in the end.
With Kirby releasing next week and the Mario collection the week after this should be the lowest we see Wii falling this year although next year is looking very bleak. Most likely most of Nintendo's internal devs have already shifted focus to the 3DS and Skyward Sword will likely be the last big first party Wii release. PS3 continuing to hold at about 20k and Move releasing two weeks from now should help it retain and maybe increase that momentum.
Who cares about sales? Gotcha!
360 funboys cares more about sales than play quality games in America. so... they care.
still see your trolling again Bigpappy
Wii is dying now because of the amount it's sold. It's done well tbh, considering it does not cater to the hardcore or the hd crowd. Considering the PS3 is now outselling the wii in all 3 regions, i think it'll drop more and more.
" considering it does not cater to the hardcore or the hd crowd" if by that you mean Japanese gamers, you can't be more wrong than that!
Move and GT5 should bring PS3 sales way up.
Badz149, Japanese is just one region obviously, and alot of those were picked up purely on mario like always. I like mario, but for hd gamers and hardcore, the wii is not the answer. Nintendo have always said, we don't make games, we make toys. And the Wii is one of them.
