That’s what announcing a slim console does for you. PS3 racked up a hilarious 2,052 sales in Japan last week, making it the lowest selling games hardware in the market.

Mind you, the only machine it managed to beat in the previous week was PS2.

Data below for the week ending August 23.

  • DSi - 59,578
  • PSP - 27,187
  • Wii - 26,972
  • Xbox 360 - 8,979
  • DS Lite - 5,735
  • PS2 - 3,295
  • PS3 - 2,052


 

Evan Wells (Uncharted 2): I think the differences that you see between any two games has much more to do with the developer than whether it’s on the Xbox or PS3.

The old models are sold out, stores get the slim the 3rd of september, thats why.



Do you want japanese voices in FF13 and Versus 13? Write to these guys and tell them: support@square-enix-usa.com

I expect PS3 sales below 1k next week.

It is pretty funny. I mean, its because there were very PS3s available as the stock clears to make way for the slim, and clearly with that coming few would buy the older, bigger model, but it does look funny even if it doesn't mean much beyond - everyone's waiting for the slim now.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Hmm damn can't find the link where ioi explained the sales figures and analysist of whats sales are going to be next few weeks....that shud be very helpful for this thread.

It's hardly hilarious when you actually do a bit of research and find that the PS3 is practically sold out in Japan.  Also, I'm sure that a majority of Japanese consumers are more than willing to wait for the slim to drop.  So how about we wait for the slim to drop in Japan and then we can see how hilarious it is when you eat humble pie.



Lol... What's with the high expectations?

it's only gonna sell 500 next week. PS3 Slim? Tchh..... C'mon.. C'mon!? *long pause* What's wrong with him!?



Just had to make this topic, didn't you?

And of course sales are that low. Old model is virtually gone, and people are waiting for the slim.
