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.

I agree with you.

Making topic's like this really do nothing but put things in people's heads.

Fanboys heads you mean ?

I don't understand what is wrong with it...

Inventory clearout...I expect the PS3 is going to post one of it's biggest weeks when the slim is launched in Japan.

Well, it should be able to make up for the low sales they had the last 3 weeks (+ this week) due to shortages.

I'm a bit surprised Sony did let that happen in Japan.

"I'm a bit surprised Sony did let that happen in Japan."
Me too.
I wonder why they thought it a good idea to launch the slim (comparatively) so late to most of the rest of the world...

- PS3 beaten by the 9 years old PS2 OMG.

- Even Stock Out FAT DS or DS Lite managed to sell more than 10k a week.

- Surely, the PS3 slim will sell more than 50-60k but don't except great sales for the future.

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


Actually Japan is having stock unavailablity and the old ps3's are getting sold out. Sony has already begun increasing the production to a mass scale to meet  consumer's demands. And I would like u to post the sales after Sept's 1st week rather than cherry picking ur favourite console's higher sales.

 



This is not right, I think a perfect storm is coming. Gives shivers down my spine, Brrrrr!

I think most people realize this is probably because their is a shortage since Sony wants to get rid of the old stock and waiting until 9/3 to send out the Slims, but the numbers are still low and pretty funny overall.

That is the point of the thread.

But it irritates the zealots apparently ...
