Official Commentary

Football continues to dominate the scene for a 4th week in a row with a 1-2-3 of familiar names…except that what would have been known as Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 7’ is now Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2008’ and debuts at No1 in exactly the same week as last year with virtually identical sales (PES 6 debuted with slighty more).

PES 6 arrived on 3 formats (PS2, 360, PC) with PS2 taking a commanding 73% of week 1. This time round and the world is changing, with PES 2008 debuting on 4 formats (PS2, 360, PS3, PC) and although PS2 is still the lead format, PS2 share is down to 42% of week 1 with Xbox 360 doing very well on 30%. EA have to be content with a second week at No2 for ‘FIFA 08’ (+14%) after a 2 week run at No1, followed at No3 by Sega’s ‘Football Manager 2008’ (-38%) having debuted at No1 last week. Nintendo’s DS ‘The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass’ remains at No4 (-11%) for a second week since launch whilst THQ climb 2 places to No5 thanks to ‘Ratatouille’ (+35%), also featuring prominently at a cinema near you. EA drop 3 places to No6 with ‘The Orange Box’ (-40%) whilst Nintendo debut at No7 with Wii ‘Metroid Prime 3: Corruption’. Microsoft sit at No8 with ‘Halo 3’ (-26%) and Disney Interactive have the highest climber, up 9 places to No9 with DS ‘High School Musical: Makin’ The Cut!’ (+62%). 505 Games ‘Cooking Mama’ continues to simmer nicely, this week at No10 after 28 weeks on chart (+35%).

A friend of mine who works in a company which imports sony stuff and sells ps items + pc told me from 1 shop he sold 32 copies of pro evo at 10:30 am and he opened at 9 am.

CRIMS0N_W0LF4877d ago

6 for PC 3 on PS2 23 for PS3.

When I entered if I didn't know him I had to wait for a whole queue of people taking PS3 Version. In My country PS3 is very popular.

shmee4877d ago

It is just that therewere not many PES PS3 in stock in UK

HMV UK (biggest retailer) ran out out PES PS3 10 days ago

PES PS3 is apparently sold out in most parts of EU

watch out for the PES PS3 bundle on NOVEMBER 14th, 2007 across EUROPE

predator4877d ago

@shmee - just wondering, how come the sales data above u doesnt back that claim up, 1 ps3 title in top 15, 5 360 titles in top 15, and pes 360 is higher than ps3, not ranting but ur comment doesnt make sense to me

shmee4877d ago (Edited 4877d ago )

SEE THE HARDWARE sales charts here;

DS = 13
Wii = 8
X360 = 6
PS3 = 6
PS2 = 4
PC = 2
PSP = 1

here u go

x360 is now the least selling console in EU

ps3 outsells it 2:1

there were 6 ps3 titles in top 40 vs 6 x360 titles in top 40


u are looking at the OLD charts of Germany,Spain and Italy

The new charts would be out next week for those regions

PES PS3 is sold out in FRANCE


Every single street shopwere out of stock last week.

PES PS3 is SOLD OUT at HMV UK (UK largest retailer)


predator4877d ago

it outsold it for a week, 2nd thing top 40 dont make me laugh look at the top 15 thats where it counts 360 dominates. enough with this eu crap every week up to the last two the 360 has been outselling the ps3 hardware and software, only since the price cut has it not, and AMAZON is gettin old mate, nowhere near does that count for anything anymore, if pes ps3 was selling so great why is it that the 360 version is selling most,

Is shmee the rebirth of Nasim?

sanderFVCKINcohen4877d ago

...there he goes again, NOW, every1 bury his azz...

barom4877d ago

in some of those link there, you could see that the market share was 42% PS2, 30% X360 and 28% PS3.

Xbox 360 has been a year longer, what does that tell you about hardware/software sales of X360 vs PS3? Hasn't PS3 been catching up? Even with a price tag of 399 pounds (granted it was a bundle) until very recently, Xbox 360 got a price cut in UK mind you. Another thing is, this is ONLY the UK. If there was any place in Europe the 360 would do decent that would be UK.

So sure X360 got it down this time (in the UK) but don't be surprised if you see the PS3 doing better in the near future.

'HMV UK (biggest retailer) ran out out PES PS3 10 days ago '

No offence but you don't come from England do you?

HMV is no where near the biggest retailer for games in the UK and at the price they sell them for i suspect they won't recieve that many sales.

GAME is by Far the largest retailer when it comes to game sales, and i suspect woolworths, PLAY.COM, gamestation and maybe even Virgin sell more games than HMV do

I hope they find a way to fix the PS3 frame rate problems they talked about.

I thought FIFA 08 sucked.

sonarus4877d ago

i got mine from importing it to the states. Should get here at the end of the week or nxt week latest. Another beauty of being a ps3 owner being able to import games since ps3 games arent region encoded as long as you have hdmi. I heard it wnt be out on ps3 till spring nxt yr jst cudnt wait that long

barom4877d ago

afaik they're working on a patch atm

paul_war4877d ago

I really want to play Pro Evo, ordered mine (PS3) form HMV online (15% discount voucher) and its sold out! Its on 'special order with our suppler' ... bloody hell

shmee4877d ago

PS3 version of PES actually sold more since it is SOLD OUT all over EU

in UK it has 28% of the shares compared to 40% for ps2 and 32% for x360 versions

expect PS3 version to outsell PS2 versions in rest of EU except UK.

PS3 has already overtaken x360 in terms of total hardware sales in EU except UK. In EUROPE 60% of x360s were traded in for either wii /ps3

BLaZiN PRopHeT4877d ago (Edited 4877d ago )

Shmee aka nasim please show me a link to it being sold out all over EU im looking at the sales charts for norway,germany and spain and it isnt even on the list.

i dont think it was shipped in those area for any system

please show me where 60% of people traded in their 360's for ps3. stop talking out your ass.

where does it say 50% of 360 owners traded their 360's in for ps3? and im not those people ask the mods to check this is my only account.
