Enterbrain: Nintendo Sold Three Times as Many Wii as PS3 in 2007

By Masaki Kondo

Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) - Nintendo Co. sold three times as many Wii game machines in Japan last year as Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 consoles, researcher Enterbrain Inc. said.

Nintendo sold 3.63 million Wii units last year, compared with PlayStation 3's 1.21 million, Tokyo-based Enterbrain said today in a faxed statement. Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 game machines sold 257,841 units, the researcher's estimates showed.

In October, Sony cut prices in Japan by as much as 10 percent. In November, the Tokyo-based company introduced its cheapest model at 39,980 yen ($367) to compete with the Wii, which is priced at 25,000 yen. The PlayStation outsold the Wii for the first time in Japan in the period from Oct. 29 to Nov. 25, according to Enterbrain.

Wii outsold PS3 3:1 in 2007 (JAPAN)

BUT PS3 outsold x360 5:1 in 2007(JAPAN)

This article is FLAMEBAIT as the real loser here is x360

Why made a heading like that

They could have made it like this

"WII outsold PS3 3:1 in JAPAN and X360 15:1 in JAPAN"

an article should be unbiased



any article if flamebait could be expunged.
a us media could take wii and ps3 in the title to make ps3 look bad

BUT as you can see that WII outsold x360 15 :1 in JAPAN in 2007

tanod you can't undertand that xbox never did well in japan, it is an american producto and never will sell good. But Sony dominated japan with the PS2 and now is getting kicked by Nintendo with a console with less power. Thats the real bad news, no xbox 360 that everybody knows that will never sell well in japan.

Ford outsold bentley but a much bigger margin. Yet which car would you rather have??

diatom4566d ago (Edited 4566d ago )

Still, the WII is more of a FIAT then a ford...

KeiZka4566d ago

You do know, that Ferrari is owned by Fiat..?

mistertwoturbo4566d ago

Eh, by 2009 when all broadcasts are HD only. People who bought a Wii will buy a PS3 or 360 to hook it up to they're hdtv.

PikkonX4566d ago

Broadcasts will be going digital in 2009, but they are not required to be in HD. You won't need an HDTV, just a tv that can accept digital signals with either an internal tuner or a tuner that you can buy in stores.
