WW Sales: PS3 or Wii?

Forums - Sales Discussion - WW Sales: PS3 or Wii?

For the Wii to beat the PS3 this week it needs to sell 22,206 or more consoles in Japan over whatever the PS3 sells.

 Do you think this will happen?

Wii will pull ahead by a bit, but it will be close.




Guitar Hero 3/ Smash Hits

yes, the wii will beat it


Wii will win. I can't see any reason the PS3 would pull ahead or the Wii would fall in Japan. Both have been very steady as far as sales go in that region.

Yes. The Wii will be at a regular of 48k-58k In Japan or so while the PS3 is at 11k-19k or so in Japan which will pull the Wii ahead for WW sales this week.

The will win this week by 15k or so.

Basically, sucky week for Wii, best week of the year so far for PS3 means

PS3= (statistically) Wii

End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

It's pretty academic either way even if we forget the Wii's huge lead. As someone already said, Nintendo has met their sales target for the financial year and are in the 'just doing enough mode' until the new financial year. Just look at the pattern for the Wii in the 'hardware by date' charts (sorry, don't know how to put the chart in the post) and you can see the Wii has been cycling between 200 000-400 000 for the last 5 weeks or so, this is no accident, this is by design.

Wii will win unless something crazy happens in Japan.

Wii will win thanks to Japan.
