YOY

PS3 UP 7% (down yoy next week and possibly for the rest of year- price cut too early?)
360 DOWN 33% (ahem... price cut?... like... now!)
Wii DOWN 27% (horrific collapse)

DS+3DS UP 14% (not bad)
PSP DOWN 45% (bye bye)

PS2 DOWN 63% (who cares?)

PS2


Not that i dont believe you, more i dont know how to use the tools on this website, but can you show the number for why PS3 wil be down YoY next week, as i would of thought sales after a price cut this year would be at least a bit better than sales with no price cut or new model last year, even with general decline, i remember last year have a distinct lack of software with the exception of GT5 which arrive late, as things like LBP2 got pushed into 2011.

I think PS3 price cut timing was fine.  It seems timed to both support the rash of releases from now through to the holidays as well as to allow the price to establish itself in the market.  I expect the spike will tail off but then pick up again into the holidays with periodic spikes such as in Japan where the price cut and the right game release combine well.

I think MS issue with 360 is how skewed the demand remains globally, which makes pricing trickier.  In Japan the console for example would need huge cuts to generate any change, EMEAA could do with a decent cut while US needs a cut the least.  Sony has the same issue but to a lesser extent I think.

With MS continuing to talk bullish about total sales they must have some pricing activity (whether full formal RRP change or heavily discounted bundles and deals) in the pipeline.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Now that MS cut price of Xbox in Aus, i think the rest of the world will just be getting great bundles and maybe discount on kinect bundles, but i dont see a price drop world wide now this year, would be strange to stagger price drop across countries as it would just drive down sales as people would be hoping there country would be next.

Wii not being great, is great.

That's it, I'm reporting.

 

Also, YAAAAAY @ Xenoblade



You can't get banned for being happy for the industry.

Looks like Wii tops 88M when rounded up, but next week for sure over 88M. Only 2M to go.


88 millions... Amazing numbers for a d00med console, and doomed ever since launch...

 Good 3ds numbers... 


I think it will squeeze another 5M for the rest of the year and to the other 7M for the rest of it's life.



Buying in 2015: Captain toad: treasure tracker,

mario maker

new 3ds

yoshi woolly world

zelda U

majora's mask 3d

Indeed. It should be up YoY throughout the holidays in both EMEAA & JP. The Americas is another beast, but I imagine it won't be far off from 2010 levels there either. The price cut was timed just right, as it was in 2009 (although the PS3 was perceived different then).
