Holy god, people. It was out for TWO DAYS when the last week ended. Give it a week, Jeez. It comes out in the States on Tuesday too.

Do note that the Wii is still selling over 250k consoles a week worldwide. Supply constraints are still a real threat to expansion.



PS3: 5.51m/51w, avg 108,039/w (up 239)
360: 12.93m/102w, avg 126,764/w (up 625), leads PS3 by 7.42m (up 70k), avg lead 18,725/w (up 386)
Wii: 13.52m/51w, avg 265,098/w (dn 1,102), leads PS3 by 8.01m (up 90k), avg lead 157,059/w (dn 1,341)

If 360 sales stabilize, PS3 sales increases needed to pass 360 by...
01/08: (008w) +875.8%, 04/08: (021w) +344.4%, 07/08: (034w) +219.3%, 10/08: (047w) +163.5%
01/09: (060w) +131.8%, 04/09: (073w) +111.4%, 07/09: (085w) +098.1%, 10/09: (099w) +086.7%
If Wii sales stabilize, PS3 sales increases needed to pass Wii by...
01/08: (008w) +1072.%, 04/08: (021w) +498.4%, 07/08: (034w) +363.4%, 10/08: (047w) +303.1%
01/09: (060w) +269.0%, 04/09: (073w) +246.9%, 07/09: (085w) +232.6%, 10/09: (099w) +220.3%
If PS2 sales freeze, Wii sales increases needed to pass PS2 (as of Mar07, 108.4m) by...
2008: (008w) +4373.8%, 2009: (060w) +0496.5%, 2010: (112w) +0219.6%, 2011: (165w) +0116.9%
2012: (217w) +0064.9%, 2013: (269w) +0033.1%, 2014: (321w) +0011.5%, 2015: (376w) -0004.8%
At +0% it will pass it in 358w, the week ending September 19th, 2014, at an age of 409w (7y44w).
Current age of PS2: 7y37w.

Last update: Week ending November 3, 2007

Personally, I find DMeister and Leo-J really funny in this thread ...

Super Mario Galaxy pushes sales of the Wii to a level the PS3 has hardly seen (roughly 4 times the average weekly sales for the PS3) and they think that it "Barely Moves Wii Hardware." In a week or two Super Mario Galaxy will have outsole every PS3 game in Japan and they consider it a flop. Indirectly they're (basically) agreeing that the PS3 is a massive failure in Japan ...

Pwned. Not to mention they're being hypocrites. I call for a lock! But sadly no Mods are on

 




In my opninion, mario galaxy did bad. I'm not saying the game sucks, i'm just very dissappointed in sales. Because I thought it would move 100.000 wii's.

I hope people aren't gonna put words in my mouth like: Kratos said Super Mario Galaxy bombed. I'm not saying that ok.

Also about 360 outselling ps3. It's a one time thing I believe so get over it. The same with mario galaxy not selling extremely well (in my opinion).

Don't grasp at straws. All games come out on thursdays in Japan (Except DQ) so the sales for this first week can be compared to the first weeks of any game's sales.

@HappySquirrel

I never said SMG flopped. I said it only moved ten thoudsand extra wii's this week from last week. I wouldn't say SMG flopped, I'd say I expected it to do better.

@ Soriku
So I also thought it would do better. DMeisterJ Has a right to his opinion. So stop bitchin about it. Mario Galaxy probably will do better.

@ Soriku

 So now you're saying that Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is as big of a game as Super Mario Galaxy? You're funny!

That pic was hilarious

@ Soriku

Even if they only shipped 5-600k, it still only sold 250k so that point is irrelevant. Everyone has been heralding SMG as the Wii's savior for sales and blah, blah, blah, but the truth is it wasn't. I just want you to write that SMG did not push Wii sales like everyone expected, that while the game is not a bomb, it did hit with a resounding thud, and only pushed ten thousand more Wiis than usual, and there was no supply constraint since it hasn't been selling as of recent anyway.

Why on earth does Wii need a saviour when it's been outselling its rivals by miles.
