Will PS3 reach 1 million sold in Others or Japan first?

Forums - Sales Discussion - Will PS3 reach 1 million sold in Others or Japan first?

Barring any massively big game releases, May's numbers would be the best judgement for the PS3's situation in Europe, but if you want earlier, I'd say take 20-33% off of April's numbers if they seem high would be a reasonable guess.



Nobody is crazy enough to accuse me of being sane.

Considering that there are more households in the 'Others', the PS2 had great sales in the region, and the launch appears to have been a decent start, I think Sony may be able to keep a little more of this momentum than the other territories and will reach 1M by the end of April. Since I am not familiar with the release dates of Japanese games, I cannot give an educated guess for Japan. But I'm assuming it will be after the Others territory and guestimate it will hit the 1M mark in Japan by late May.



Numbers are like people. Torture them enough and you can get them to say anything you want.

Definitely others...they are already down to sub-20,000 weekly sales again in Japan.

This thread highlights the absurdity of people saying "PS3 is the only system which will be strong in all 3 major territories." Wii is going to hit 2 million sales in each before PS3 hits 1 million in each.



"[Our former customers] are unable to find software which they WANT to play."
"The way to solve this problem lies in how to communicate what kind of games [they CAN play]."

Satoru Iwata, Nintendo President. Only slightly paraphrased.

Yeah i agree... Manhunt 2, No More Heroes, Disaster, Godfather, Driver, Call of Duty, Medal Of Honor, Prince Of Persia, all these games are for casuals... ^^




So what, casual gamers eventually make the consoles sell... And with super paper mario on the way and more hardcore games coming out in MID 07 and late 07.... (No more heroes is definitely hardcore, and there are more games coming, so i don't see what the HELL is wrong with u guys)... Btw, u have ssb: Brawl, metroid, sadness, resident evil, mario galaxy so that ain't casual AT ALL! And 'Crazzy man', u'r SO WRONG, Wii CAN compete with PS3 and it is poownin its ASS!... Ur just to egocentric to see that ur beloved Sony system is being ass whooped right now... And when more wii's sell, there's more profit for 3th parties on the Wii so development shifts from PS3 to Wii, ''already happening AS WE SPEAK!''... Then more casual gamers pick the system up and you have a visual

I don't know which are exclusives so I'd ask you to take the non-exclusives out of your list because they would DEFINATELY sell better on the other two consoles. You can't compete with the PS3. Just by the name I can tell you which games are far from hardcore: -Big Brain Academy -Super Smash Bros. Brawl (I know this one to be a kiddie game) -SSX: Blur (This game is already out and it sux according to critics) -Super paper mario. (SRSLY, Mario is a hardcore game?? Where are you living?? More like "WHEN" are you living?) -Super smash football wii. (HUH?!? I think the PES franchise is better.. how else would you call 7 freaking titles? mind you, I don't like soccer, but a lot of people do, so I don't think if anyone's thinking to buy a soccer game, he'd buy a Wii and Super smash football. The Super Smash alone makes it sound like a Joke) -Tennis Masters (Not hardcore and exactly the same gameplay as Virtua Tennis 3, I'm 100% sure) I bet there's more and I bet there's twice as much non-exclusives in that list that will sell MUCH better on the PS360. I just don't know these games.. probably means they will sell poop. And GAMES are just an opinion, just so you know. However, quality isn't... and we can tell which games are Hardcore and which are not so this list is pointless, and it definately doesn't live up to it's header.



Planning on getting a PS3 sometime in July-August.
