Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

@Nyanks: The 360 Arcade is the same price as the Wii, yet we don't see that affecting 360 sales. So price isn't the only factor!

@routsounmanman: That made me laugh... Hahahaha that was a nice burn... poor Crazyman's been made into shark steak.

Yeah but everyone knows that's not exactly the best model of the 360. It's like the crappy alternative, most people on here don't seem very keen on it anyways. The "good" model (you know, the one that is actually appealing to people) and the PS3 are more expensive, and this is the most important factor. Obviously if the Wii and the successor of the Playstation 2 came out at the same price point, things would be a little different now......


So.. basically.. what you are saying is......... the price is not the only factor?... yep okay



we know they are sold out most places. unless a Wii factory blew up Nintendo has a slew of them coming soon. I personally believe next weeks numbers will be huge(what happened this week) I have noticed many more Wiis being sold on Ebay, and they are going for around 325, last week the cheapest I saw was 370.



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

Around the Network

Whatever,
all i know, that PS3 is OUTSELLING x360 in US and UK since 2008.
The console which is cheaper, which had 1 year start ahead, which has bigger game library(not for long though), and better online options(not for long though too).

Wii is next. Not so fast, x360 is down. Wii will be down after big AA games will be released on PS3 and 299$ price. x360 is down even without them. Though many people wasn`t expecting that, even me(so fast).
