 Some would say 100%, I, however, will refrain from saying such things.

 

Ps2s best 4 weeks December: 5879K

Ps2s best 5 weeks December: 6543K

(Both 2002)

 

Wii 3 weeks December: 4380K

Needed to break best 4 weeks December: 1499K

Sales last week: ~ 1800K

And then 700K next week is obvious.

 

Or, Americas only.

Ps2

Best 4 weeks December: 3155K

Best 5 weeks December: 3362K

 

Wii 3 weeks December: 2345K

So it needs 810K next week. Quite possible.

 Pretty darn good, in fact considering there are one and a half weeks worth of sales in the Americas left in 2008, then yeah almost 100%

dude , sales for this week are the week ending DEC 20, the next week is the week ending DEC 27, so add 18.83M, plus the biggest week of the year, which is the current week we are in, lets say 600k, 19.43M.

NOW THERE ARE STILL 4 DAYS LEFT OF 2008, within those 4 days the ps3 can hit 20 million.

Which is why I am saying the week ending JAN 2 or 3, simply because vgchartz doesnt do daily figures.

All this talk of whether the PS3 will hit 20 millions before the end of 08 remind me of last year's talks of whether the Wii would hit 20 millions before the end of 07.

Leo, by your own logic the PS3 won't hit 20M in 08 as you peg it at 19.43M after its last full week so it would need 570k in the following 4 days to hit it. Even if we were to be generous with the beleaguered PS3 adn gave it the extra 3 days of 09 it still wouldn't be enough according to you as you are pegging this week as both the biggestweek of the year and at 600k. I think that sales history show that expecting only a 5% drop between christmas week and the week after that is highly unrealistic:

Firstly, last year's christmas week sales were less than the week before christmas due to only having two days in the week before christmas day but this year is likely to be different as there are 4 days of pre-christmas shopping. But even accepting arguendo your 600k estimate for christmas week there is still the problem that last year's drop between christmas week and the following week  was 25%/112k for the PS3, very far from the small 5%/30k needed for your prediction to pan out. Even the smallest drop in precentage, the PSP, sold 15% less so it is highly unrealistic to expect only a 5% drop between this week and next week.

Is 1 million in a week in one territory a world record?

Also I wonder if the DS could break the record for most systems sold in a week?

It sold a little over 2 million in a week last year, it;s at 1.93 million with japan to still go up.

I think it's possible.



So why did they call it the 360?because when you see it, you'll turn 360 degrees and walk away- some guy on Gamespot

PS3 sold 400k last year for the week ending the 28th.  Even though it's basically tracking lower this year each week than last year, we'll give the benefit of the doubt and keep it at 400k.

18.83m + 400k = 19.23m.  That would require 870k to get to 20 million.  It can barely get 870k across 2 weeks, much less 4 days.

 



The rEVOLution is not being televised

Sigh. Amazing Wii, amazing DS, amazing 360, crappy PSP, crappy PS3. Nothing changes :(

Oh and congrats to Nintendo for inventing the most popular thing since... since... ever.

I just have to say that Mario Kart sales with hardware sales for the wii are going to be huge. All the retail and online areas in my area are sold out of Mario Kart wii, except for one Kmart about half an hour away. My buddy plans on going there to get one for himself. The wii hardware numbers could be staggering for christmas week. I just can't believe that 8 months after the release of Mario Kart it is still selling at these huge numbers.
