The latest hardware sales from Japan have been released, with Move making its debut in the territory.
Wow watch those wii numbers keep droping and the DS numbers .......
It's (Wii) basically following a slightly exaggerated PS2 trend. Couldnt maintain the momentum forever, especially with strong competition. Plenty of life left in it yet though, they should just heavily slash the price. Maybe follow suit and knock out a redesign.
PSP – 32,591 PS3 – 20,128 DSi LL – 15,819 DSi – 14,703 Wii – 11,971 DS Lite – 3,887 Xbox 360 – 2,162 PS2 – 1,222 PSP go – 924 For comparison’s sake, here are the hardware numbers from last week. PSP – 37,127 PS3 – 22,201 DSi LL – 21,084 DSi – 20,084 Wii – 12,810 DS Lite – 5,268 Xbox 360 – 2,342 PS2 – 1,715 PSP go – 1,590
Wait till the holiday and the Wii will beat everybody. I know this because Michael Pachter says so.
hahaha ! :)
Think the wii sales are gonna keep dropping?? Think again. Nintendo have more than enough space to price cut and keep the momentum up. But they are not going to rush to it with christmas looming. Quick prediction. Wii price cut early next year.
Nintendo wont drop the wii price in any territory till next fall. plus they already dropped the price in japan and still are losing to ps3,there is no point in dropping it.
ok maybe the wii market is saturated. Nintendo just said they have shipped 75M wiis. Thats huge for a short period of time. Something was gonna give.
out wii sales will drop just because a lot of families will look at ps3 as a HD wii with built in bluray and netflix(also on xbox360 and wii) so ps3 could become their one console for do it all casual/core games netflix bluray move sony has put them self in a great position with move launch.
i always think its silly when someone says now that move is out its gonna sell more than the wii come on get serious you really think allot of the type of people who bought wiis are gonna pay twice as much as a wii just to get something simple like motion controls?
..hmm better hardware, better games, bluray, better motion control. "Twice as much" is not enough !
wow thebox been beating the ps2
Japan knows the difference between a good system and a bad one. Even if its a decade older than the new stuff....
Xbox 360 – 2,162 PS2 – 1,222 Its nothing to be excited about, but it contradicts your claim that the ps2 beat the 360m in japan. Edit: sorry dude i misread your post. i thought you said the opposite.
acere I hope that's sarcasm or just an observation because the 360 beating Sony's 10 year old console is not an accomplishment. Anyway, all this talk about Nintendo dying and all that is nonsense. People are waiting on the 3DS which explains the lack of sales for the other handhelds and everyone who wanted a Wii has one, so of course sales have slowed down.
I like how you dismiss these poor sales as pre 3ds holdout.. Honestly dude nintendo has exhausted this gravy train...
is all Playstation!
Wii is really falling off.
Wii had a good run but it's time to Move on.
According to Media Create Wii is 241 units shy of having its lowest selling week ever in Japan. 9/21/2009 - 9/27/2009 DSi – 63,342 PS3 – 39,960 PSP – 17,334 DS Lite – 15,057 Wii – 11,731 Xbox 360 – 4,854 PS2 – 2,347 I'm done worrying about the Wii's situation. Whatever happens will happen.
The PS Move has been out for a week over there. http://www.vgreleases.com/p... This is its launch week and PS3 console sales are actually DOWN from the week before. As I mentioned in an earlier post, ps3 sales didn't increase in anticipation of the Move launch, nor did they increase in the actual week of the PS Move launch. In fact, they decreased in the launch week. While Move sales have been respectable across the world, this is blatant proof that PS move is NOT a system seller.
