PSP Slim Storms Japan, Wii Sales Drop in September

The PSP actually sold more than three times as much as the Wii in Japan during September as the new slim model and software like Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII drove sales. The Wii meanwhile saw a dip in sales, although Wii Sports did pass the 2 million units milestone.

People are finally catching on to what kind of hi-tech products Sony has. The japanese now know that the Playstation brand is for the versatile gamer who needs their casual and hardcore fix. All of that is available on playstation.

I'm just proving you bots wrong. Sony is the worldwide leader in electronix....PERIOD

@ Nasim

You sure 360 only sold 3k last week? In japan, 360 is averaging about 500-1,200 consoles a month. Pretty terrible if you ask me

beyond what?
please tell me =/ because all i see is you guys using phrases, but i bet you dont even know what its about.

PSP's catch phrase is "Get Your Own."

Back on topic, a string of really good PSP games are coming out in the US and Japan (Syphon Filter, FF Tactics, Gundam..the japanese love it, FF Crisis Core, etc.). I'm not really surprised it's #1 again, but only surprised because I'm used to seeing the Wii and DS have combined sales of over 200,000 units every week. Hopefully I'll see alot more of this in later weeks.

Using corporate phrases like that is so lame. I love my ps3 and 360 but if you ever see me reaching the fanboy low of saying "play beyond" or "jump in" shoot me pls.

x360 sales plummetted to 3000 units


MS give up . JAPAN and now EU are just gone for you


@BOT below

no one buys HALO 3 in JAPAN . this is why HALO 3 has dropped out of the top charts in JAPAN . x360 sold just 3k hardwares last week

x360 is dead in both JAPAN and EU

Maybe a little game like HALO 3 has a lot to do with it as well... Japanese gamers are snapping this up in droves.

Snatching up all 10 copies shipped to Japan, selling out on day two.

The same will happen to PS3 when they release FF13

ChickeyCantor4492d ago

LMAO thats not what i meant, you guys keep yelling play beyond, beyond what? because for what we have seen now....nothing special.

It is selling not because people are "catching on" to it. It is selling because practically everybody in that country has purchased a DS and/or Wii so there is nothing left for them to buy but the PSP.

You have to think "SATURATION". If everyone has purchased your product then there is no one left to sell it to in that area. So people buy the next thing thing on the market. Sales for the PSP (& PS3) have no where to go but up in light of the DS and Wii peaking in that country.

actually it's selling because people over there really like the words Final Fantasy and VII

You do know that there are more than 5 million people in Japan, right. You xbots are pathedic always trying to down play SONY. Wii has sold 5 million units in Japan and now it's fading pretty fast. Wii shortages were made up by NES, to get everyone to buy the wii. Anyway, It's funny how FF is responsible for almost 500,000 PSP sold while Halo3 only has shiped an extra 100,000 unit for it's release month and has sold as 4 times the copies. Let's see what FF13 do for PS3. It's good to see healthy competition, it just makes SONY work harder to provide the best hardware and software for us gamers.
