    Hardware Sales Jan 15-21 Japan

    Taken from the Neogaf forum for the week 15-21 Jan

    Wii 87,360
    DSL 114,002
    PSP 35,274
    PS3 21,192
    PS2 28,491
    Xbox360 10,164

    This seem about correct, and they've been circulating the net. We'll have to wait and see a little longer if they are 100% correct.

    I agreed but reports that PS3 are not flying off shelves either.

    I dont think you can blame shortages. There are enough PS3's, why else would one of the biggest retailers in Japan slash the prices ($80+) to move units? Didn't Sony confirm they've shipped a million units to Japan already? Shortages aren't the problem whatsoever...

    Jesus. It's more than twice as expensive as the competition. Of course it's not going to sell as many units. Why are people so surprised by this?

    I don't think it's a issue of things getting slower. I think that it's a issue of the hype dying down now it's time to deliver. The wii will expereince this too but it will be much worse. The PS3 really won't deliver to sway buyers in large amounts until they put things like Motorstorm (the all mud map) on a kiosk or Heavenly Sword. I'm not sure what the wii will have to do regain hype after it dies, we will see.

    Hmm because its Sony and because Playstation is expected to SELL in Japan.

    Here are last weeks sales for comparison:
    Wii - 93,708
    DS Lite - 89,287
    PSP - 48,804
    PS3 - 25,531
    PS2 - 22,663
    Xbox 360 - 9,035

    Sales have picked up a little though the ratio remains. Strange that Xbox 360 is still selling.
    We believe multiple SKUs just confuse consumers so we will just stick to one SKU....a year later... 20GB, 40GB (no BC), 60GB (US full BC, EU limited BC), 80GB, 160GB, more to come...

    January is always a slow sales month, everyone is down overall its not just Playstation.

    Also add to the fact Sony's game selection right now is not all that attractive to the Japanese gamer...both those facts make it difficult to sell a system which is double the price of a Wii.

    Just the facts of course

    These numbers arenot very good at all for Sony. But give it time and FF13 and MGS4 and the numbers will go through the roof


    PNP: dizzan

    Most anticipated: Next Pes, Uncharted, 8 days, HS, Mario Gal, Alan Wake

    January is not a good sales month , thats normal since no one has money left after christmas.

    Besides , there are no Japanese titles out there at the moment.
    Virtua Fighter will give sales a boost.

    Well if it isn't blue fantasy from Teamxbox.

    PS3 sales are lower I see. Is there a link to official sales or is this the neogaf prediction?

    QUICK!!! Sell your ps3's on ebay before its too late!!!! IT'S OBVIOUS NO ONE WANTS TO BUY A PS3 NOW OR IN THE FUTURE. Boy, am I glad I didn't get my PS3 yet. Just saved myself a pretty penny =D!! Let's all go to h00ters after and forget ourselves of this disaster and our blind faith.
    .
    .
    . *end sarcasm*

    -__-.... Plz, gimme a break. This shouldn't be a shock to anyone out there. The ps3 will have sluggish sales for a while, give it time. The PS3 is a future investment and it's gonna take a lil faith by fans knowing it'll deliver.
    Waiting For: KoF 13. FF13 VS. MvC 3.

    FIGHTER GAMER FOR LIFE =D!!!

    After BC was fixed with the firmware 1.5, I saw noticeably more jpn gamers who said they would buy ps3 soon than before.

    In another words, as soon as sony fixes any problems that might hinder gamers from getting one, we will start to see more sales. FF13 anyone?

    Considering 360 only sold about 10k, that's not really a good thing.

    XBOX 360 numbers are not worth comparing in Japan. People tend to more focus on Wii and PS3.

    And Wii sold 4x as much as the PS3. What point are you trying to make? That's not exactly the best thing to go by considering the performance of the 360 in that region, it has done exceptionally well everywhere else though.

    Yes, it is me.

    I myself don't have an official link, but these numbers have been circulating the net, and they've been posted over at TXB as well. Noone is questioning them as far as I know, so maybe they have been confirmed already? Not sure.

    Lol that's a good answer . I guess the ps3 needs a lot more games to start selling more , maybe around mach this numbers will go up .

    D@mn! The Nintendo-DSLite and the Wii still clowning in Japan. It's going to take a while for the PlayStation 3 to take over Japan.
