Only one console having a good year....

PS3 is starting to look pretty bad and Wii is sliding (only due to Japan though so can be rescued easily perhaps?)

A 1.5 million swing to 360 from PS3 2008 to 2009, thats big.

PS3 is getting well beaten, but its at the higher price so its understandable.
Only Sony should be thinking about this though, Playstation gamers certainly aren't feeling the effects with many great multiplats and exclusives releasing for the system.

The 360 is doing great, it keeps rising year over year but this is likely to be its peak year. It still has a good software line-up although it could do with a few more exclusives (E3 will likely fix this).

The Wii is getting beaten by its previous years sales, pity its still miles ahead of everyone else



-12% isnt too bad for PS3. SONY can manage2009 without a price cut and hopefully make a profit by Q4.



It's not a very bad sign for the Wii, since that period of 2008 saw the release of Mario Kart Wii, and Nintendo dumped a huge amount of Wii stock in GTA4 release week.

It's pretty good for the 360, it means the price cut worked well.

It's not so bad for the PS3 either, but the last half of the year looks less promising than the Wii's... unless GT5 gets released this year.

Only one console is having a good year? Looks to me like 360 and Wii are both enjoying a healthy year so far.

He means in comparison to 2008 (which btw is also what I meant in my post above).

I mean in relation to 2008... correct

360 has shown steady growth year on year since launch... Microsoft have played this perfectly so far. They time things so well...

Ah, I see... Though I can't really see a loss of less than 1% as bad, really. Especially not when the previous year was pretty much record-breaking.

Good year for M$
