TWENTY TWENTY cricket world cup fever i should say.

BTW x360 sales dropped below 1000 in JAPAN

yesssssss grabage box 360 is fully dead in JAPAN and will be dead in EU tomorrow when FIFA 08 hits the ps3.

FIFA 08 has knocked HALO 3 from most of the charts in EU

When did FIFA 08 become a PS3 exclusive? And aren't PS3 fans bitter towards EA so probably won't buy FIFA? I don't even know why I'm asking considering you have 1 bubble.

What wiped the floor? lol isn't that what the ds has been doing all over the world for years lol stupid article. Someone is happy the failed psp finally sold more than 1000 systems a week, and it's just going to go right back where it was except this will never happen again.

haha think your confused, thats the 360 in Japan. The psp is actually doing very well is actually been out selling the ps3 some months. Not saying the ps3 is selling too hot either. just imagine if SE releases FF7 remake on the ps3.

The PSP outsold the a DS by a margin of 4 to 1 so you can bet that it's going to outsell the DS through this year or whenever Dragon Quest comes out which is basically the only hardcore game they have coming out. You forgot that when the games that have American appeal such as Castlevania, God of War, and Final Fantasy come out in America, the PSP will start outselling DS here in the U.S.

Aside from a few Dragon Quest titles, the DS will also get the Final Fantasy IV remake before the end of this year.
