SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV PS3 CAPCOM USA Apr-10 10

EDIT: Ouch!



Wow those sales are bad.
Again this is i think now conclusive proof that both 360 and PS3 demand is starting to get to saturation point. Both are up on last year but both in comparison to the previous year PS3 is down on sales while 360 is only barely up by like 1k.

So what is interesting about those numbers is that in USA compared to the last time PS3 price cut the numbers are down this time. Which again throws further evidence into the fre to support Sources theory that this gen peak has gone.

Taking out a margin of error of 10%, you'll have PS3 overtracked 8k, X360 overtracked 25K, Wii overtracked 47k.

The numbers in the OP have already been adjusted from NA to US.



OUCH @ HARDWARE!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

PS3 did 159k last year, it's not down.........

Edit : nvm you're comparing to 2 years ago....

 

I got to say PS3 is lower than I expected.

Wii numbers if definitly low too and I think one can start to say that the NSMBWii/Price cut effect is gone.

maybe the new incoming bundle will help raise Wii sales again......



PS3-Xbox360 gap : 1.5 millions and going up in PS3 favor !

PS3-Wii gap : 20 millions and going down !

Have to say one thing to praise VGC with their predictions is the Splinter Cell sales, almost spot on! Well done.



Both PSP and DS inside a 10% margin. Going by the same base... - NSMBWii overtracked 70k, GOW 3 overtracked 20k...



 

 

 

 

 

Hardware is upsetting

Splinter Cell is awesome

Pokemon is awesome

Lack of PS2 is... Disturbing ¬_¬

No you misunderstood what i said. I said they are up over last years figures. But PS3 is down compared to it's 2008 figures while 360 only just beat it's 2008 numbers. 2008 was the year coming in off the back of the previous PS3 price cut. Which prooves that the price cut effect is/has started to now ware off.
