Halo is a phenomenon, Reach has incredible staying power.

 

KZ3 improves a bit this week and may start to match KZ2 given time.  Strange performance, actually the recent improvement is all coming from the US... bundles?  Anyway it looks like it may be demonstarting some legs in the US but elsewhere it has none.

 

LBP2 is a massive sales disappointment.

LBP after 10 weeks - 134k for the week and total of 1.8m

LBP2 after 10 weeks - 23k for the week and total of 1.1m

Not sure where this franchse will go after this, needs a new direction... somehow.

I hope it dies.

Worst 60 bucks I ever spent on a game.

Why is the PS3 winning the home console warz at the moment? I really don't get where this has come from

Yeah, it's really confusing. Brand power probably.

- I wouldn't call LBP2 a massive disappointment, but a disappointment nonetheless. LBP1 had the advantage of selling faster and stronger due to holiday and freshness, but LBP2 should still be selling at least within 100k of it. In the end, I can see it getting close to LBP1's lifetime totals, but not clearing them, which is a shame (it's better in every way).

- KZ3, it's not doing that good because of bundles (you can't really buy those anymore here), it's because of the marketing and multiplayer.

- Reach is definitely strong, but recent price drops/sales helped quite a bit.

Who thinks Wii will hit 90M in summer?


I'd bet on late summer/early fall to be on the safe side.  It is possible sooner if they release something they have in hiding (however, they usually wait till fall/holiday season to release their big titles).  At first I didn't like that they wait till E3 to announce most of their fall/holiday season titles.  However, I kind of like it now since it is kind of pointless to get hyped about a game that is a year or so away from being released. 



Pretty good numbers, even when comparing to last year (talking about PS3), by that time of the year we had God of War III (second week), Yakuza 4 (Japan, second week) and Final Fantasy XIII (third week).



Are there adjustments? Of course... always.

DS UP 2,939
PSP UP 1,943
Wii UP 127
360 DOWN 388
PS3 DOWN 505

I was just about to ask the same question?? I mean isn't it like more expensive than the other 2? and it's gimmick isn't doing as good as the others gimmicks


I see that no one thinks about one simple thing : it is the only console using Blu-ray. 

Put a Wii, a PS3 and a Xbox360 in front of you and ask yourself : Wich piece of hardware is apparently more "future-proof"? The majority of people is answering PS3.

And yet less people think that this year than last... look at my YOY above your post.

We are often guilty of looking at a weeks numbers in isolation.  

The PS3 is doing good compared to last year,considering that it was still riding the slim/price-cut effect.


down over 30% is good?



I'm not really here!

Brand power has meant little of late. Right now, the PS3 is the only console with new and exclusive content coming out at such an abundance. That definitely plays a factor.
