In France the PS3 closed 2011 with a high note. With 845,000 units of hardware sold last year, Sony’s black box was the only system that recieved an increase in sales year to date in that part of the world.
Its not the United Staes Of The World so it doesnt count/matter
France doesn't = the world. lol. I'm sorry I had to do it lol.
Yeah but unlike a certain country, French people aren't deluded enough to believe that it does equal the world.
Yeah, Spain is kinda strange huh? lol s/k
it woulda won World wide but people had to replace their old RROD 360's with the newer slim versions. Goodjob MS, making sure the old systems broke constantly helps boost ur sales. Im just Jokin :D eitherway both consoles are doing fine, doesn't matter to me if ps3 is 3rd place, its still first place to me, and the wii is last place, like......last place of all generations and time :3
why does this even matter? lol.
Nice sales, good to see the exclusives paying off for Sony since it's the only one that saw an increase.
I live in Paris dude and nobody overhere buys a PS3 to play KZ, LBP, Motorstorm, Infmous or whatever. Overhere its the de facto console to play FIFA and COD (in the USA the 360 for Madden and COD), the only two games the 60% OF gamers play overhere. Ask the average PS3 owner in France what Infamous is and he wont have a clue.
Same thing in the UK, Fifa and COD are the top dogs. I've asked people if they know about inFAMOUS as well and the majority don't, yet inFAMOUS 2 charted high in charts around europe. http://neogaf.net/forum/sho... inFAMOUS is not a system seller but collectively it along with the other exclusives are IMO. I don't have any numbers for France but I'm sure if you add up the sales of the exclusives from Uncharted 3, LBP, KZ3, inFAMOUS 2 etc.. it would amount to something substantial.
COD is popular all over the world dude. Fifa is popular all over Europe and Madden is popular in America. This isn't exclusive to Paris. Americans don't rush out to buy Killzone and Littlebigplanet either.
I guess the French are smarter than the Americans. JOKING
