Until we get this quarter lol
You already have the numbers for this quarter from MS and Sony?
Nope, but no doubt the gap will decrease with the SS.
Sony will be shifting a ton of PS3s in Japan this fall as well with their amazing lineup (which funnily enough is thanks to 3rd party exclusives).
Oh yeah, no doubt the SS has spurred sales. I assume the Xbox will explore a price drop that will in turn diminish any bump the PS3 gets.
I am so confused. Everyone keeps going back and forth between WW and Japan only. Help me!
I think you guys are actually underestimating Sony with those games, two of which will be launching on the exact same day, and they won't be a blip at all neither in Japan nor WW, I wouldn't be surprised if that week alone over 300K PS3s will be sold just in Japan especially with limited edition consoles being offered. IIRC Yakuza 3 shifted over 200K PS3s back in 2009 and that was when it was the phat at $400, this time the console is cheaper and has two blockbuster titles, which in Japan are atm some of the biggest franchises.
We'll see what happens but the week those two drop PS3 will be way above the handhelds for sure, only thing to stop them would be a DQ or Pokemon title launching on 3DS on that week.
Sony's western lineup this fall is pretty weak but it's the complete opposite in Japan.
Sony will dominate in Japan with those games. Sony already dominates there....by a landslide...and they aint slowing down.
The SS had a sales boost of 138% during the first week I think.
We talking about the PS3 Slim or the new one
Sony’s (SNE) “super slim” PlayStation 3 is off to a good start despite the console’s price actually increasing. According the MCV, Sony saw a 138% increase in PlayStation 3 sales with the release of its smaller, lighter game console in the United Kingdom. What’s more, MCV says that the 500GB model also accounted for 37% of all PlayStation 3 sales last week, which is particularly impressive since the slimmer model was only released this past Friday.
I just noticed the jump was for the UK only.
