PS3 had a slight increase in Japan? XBOX 360 had a drop as TOV dropped

Forums - Sales Discussion - PS3 had a slight increase in Japan? XBOX 360 had a drop as TOV dropped

That's weird lol. the PS3 version of Soul Calibur sold 27k this week according to the preview while TOV dropped to 20k this week and to top it off, the PS3 had an increase with no releases?

Is it the PS3's turn to finally increase while 360 decrease?

I think TOV for PS3 in Japan is likely now

Really now? I've thought the 360 wouldn've gotten more sales from TOV. As for TOV on the PS3, it's most likely going to happen. Just not anytime soon.



PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Guidelines to understanding my train of thought:

  • THE METAL GEAR SOLID FRANCHISE IS THE BEST THING TO HIT THE PLANET SINCE THE PS3!! THUS, MGS FRANCHISE >> SLICED-BREAD.
  • Solid Snake shall and well always shove 1up mushrooms up Mario's ass. 
  • Solid Snake shall and well always decimate Master Chief with a flurry of rocket launchers, shotgun rounds, and a 20 minute monologue.

The PS3 had...a 2k increase. Nothing huge.

As for ToV...ouch, but Tales games are front loaded and ToV was on the 360. Still, this is like the first time a 360 title is in the top twenty so meh.

i guess i was correct then. plus the boost with the ps3 will have somthing to do with the holiday the japanese have this time of year

I would say there is more chance of a Wii port since the graphics aren't demanding at all, and the Wii already has the tales series established on it, and will most likely bring in more sales with less of cost and time of porting the game because of the differences between the 360 and Wii architectures are much less than that of the PS3 and 360s in terms of Cpu. Though alot of games are harder to do because of the Wii's limiting ram, but because the game would be running in 480p, and probably doesn't use too much of the 360s ram it seems to be perfectly doable on the Wii. Also the Wii seems to be the tales of console this generation seeing that the next Main Series tales will be on the WIi, along with Symphonia Dawn of the New World already being released, so there is higher chances of tales fans having a Wii than the PS3.  Either way I'm going to say it will stay 360 exclusive more than anything.

@Op OVerall ToV sold nicely with the limited instal base of the 360. I think we should wait until we see how good it sells in the West before jumping to conclusions or thinking about ports.

It would do a great service for the TOV to get ported to the Wii considering it's large install base. But, as you said, it's a 360 exclusive.
