Forums - Sales Discussion - january 3rd 2009: it's official, Microsoft has a problem with the 360.

So no yakuza3, RE5, SFIV and FFXIII demo effect for japan??? Right, we should only speak about countries where the 360 outsells the ps3...

Clearly, Sony is the one with the problem. They were outsold by 80,000 units worldwide by a much more expensive console.

Watch out Microsoft, your lead is now only 80k per week. Be scared, very scared.

Nah, but really. It's the biggest week for hardware in Japan (just about) and the other regions saw huge drops.

 

 

This is all that needs to be said. Japan holiday sales currently make the difference smaller than it would be once all markets return to normal non-holiday sales.



 
Debating with fanboys, its not
all that dissimilar to banging ones
head against a wall 

If you discount the holiday boost in Japan, it was a massive victory for M$ again



It's amazing how an 80k worldwide win for 360 is now a sign of strength for the PS3. it was only a couple months ago when we were fairly amazed that the 360 could win a week worldwide EVER again.

And now MS padding their lead 80k in a post-holiday nothing week is a good thing for Sony?

You have to be kidding.

Have the past 8-12 weeks of numbers really blinded people that much? Do we really have such short memories?



Can't we all just get along and play our games in peace?

Do not fight the Sony spin machine, it is fruitless. A positive is a positive and a negative is a positive in the land of PS3.

Well, there *was* that 60,000 unit lead that the PS3 posted in Japan this week. Very soon, that will drop down to around a 10,000-20,000 unit lead.

I'd only say that MS should be worried when the PS3 is selling within ~25,000 units per week.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

80k weekly gain is actually higher than I was expecting post holidays, and now I hear it's expected to rise again after this week because of the Japanese sales boost?

Without a price cut 1st calender quarter of the year @ 80k x 12 weeks = 960k. Predicted gap ~9million total end of March. Yeah shake in your boots MS!!

And, if you factor in how sales in the non-game divisions, and adoption rates of Blu-Ray get trumpeted by some, news not relevant to videogames, good or bad, are also seen as positive.  So negative, positive, and irrelevant are ALL positive.
