Can M$ Steal Japan for this holidays with some BlockBuster ?


No. Japan supports japanese companies.. and besides I don't think they like western games very much

its been confirmed today that GT5 has a weather system, track editor and go karts! seriously i think this is going to be the best selling in the series even beating GT3 sales of 14 million plus!

Even given price drop and Slim release I'm surprised to see such continued robost sales for the 360 at this point in it's lifetime.

Especially with no games of note and the weakness line-up for the rest of the year.    While Wii has nothing to fear longterm, this show of  strength from the 360 pretty much ends any hopes of PS3 ever overtaking it (while both continue to be sold). 



 

XB360 seems born again, I wouldn't be surprised if MS announced a portable too, now.

Yes, It's too early to see the trend (BTW, where did VGC chart tools go?), and PS3 manages to take no damage even during XB's strongest weeks, so it will be a strong competitors when it will fire its big guns, but it's quite likely that even in the worst case, when the launch surge settles down, XB360S average sales will remain nicely above the values they settled around after last Xmas.

Wii resists and it's still above PS3, but we were used to see it taking no damage from MS, let's say it: it's still the strongest, but we expect more from it.

When Halo Reach Arrives i expect a big boost for new 360s... Than Black Ops and Fable 3 will keep momentum Alive and ofc Kinect with Kinect Sports and so on...

So 360 will Be the king of Americas this Holidays especially after 360s Arcade comes out and the Big Guns (Reach , Fable 3 & black Ops).



*Weird my comments were missing*

*take 2*

With the way that console relaunches have provide a timely boost to stale hardware sales you wonder how long it will be before Nintendo gets in on the fun.



The Interweb is about overreaction, this is what makes it great!

...Imagine how boring the interweb would be if everyone thought logically?

I would never buy it, but I know what MS marketing can do when they are in the right mood, and nothing puts them in a better mood than smashing competitors like they are doing now.

Great, great 360 sales. The only negative for MSFT about this is based on the software IE RDR increasing by 2k for both PS3 and 360, no significant software bumps lately sans the obvious Fifa bump, etc. Theyre not adding to their XBL/userbase with the slim.

Im sure the margin on the remodel is a pretty penny regardless though so regardless of who is buying them its probably great for MSFT's revenue.



wow these numbers are unbelievable for the middle of summertime.  If the 360 can manage sales like this during this time of year with no huge releases just imagine what it will do over the holidays with Halo Reach, Fable 3, Call of Duty Black Ops, Kinect, and the new Slim Arcade launching.  Could we possibly see the 360s at its 6th straight 100k plus week in the America's?
