Forums - Sales Discussion - American sales - WII + PS3 --- just WOW

sweet for ps3, finally good supply for wii, pretty good xbox 360 numbers but ps3 outsells it by close to 10 k.

if the ps3 can outsell 360 in america, that combined with the huge outselling of it in japan and pretty good outselling in others will cause the ps3 to come much closer to 360 by years end.

I'm Really really Happy with the Ps3 Sales these days, Sony Deserve it after all



You know, all this supply talk is starting to get old. I was in a local bestbuy two days ago where they had a stack of about 15 elites sitting out in an aisle. Along with several pros sitting on a shelve.



I'm sure Wii numbers may drop to sub-100k next week. But given it's 200k+ performance, after only having sold 47k the previous week, it should be easily understood that Wii demand is sky high.  And thus, there shouldn't be any "Wii = fad" rhetoric come next Tuesday.

Even with the Wii jump though, I am truly, truly impressed with the PS3.  Can wait to see how this all plays out.

Wha'sup with the 360!?

Oh come on, haven't you noticed that the Wii = fad stuff is a joke, it's like "I blame Wii fit!"

Look at this chart from 11/4/06-1/1/08. There has to be more to the shortage than "unexpected demand". While the sales are better in 07's holiday, they're not better enough to warrant a shortage.

Changing factory lines? Retrofitting RRoD fixes? New SKUs? Dunno, but blaming the holiday season makes no sense.

I hate to tell you this, but it is not very hard at all to find an Xbox360 around here... so maybe the bad sales are, the later adopters are going with PS3. Right now the Brand is the best thing the PS3 has going for it(and the blu- ray win)



psn- tokila

add me, the more the merrier.

Congratulations, you found one store with 360s in stock. That doesn't explain why other stores aren't getting their orders filled. That's an obvious sign of a shortage, whether you want to admit it or not.

The shortage isn't everywhere but it definitely exists. I've talked to three different people in the retail industry and they say "no, the shortage is real" and "we're not getting our orders filled". None of these people even like the Xbox.

I think Bod even mentioned something about this in another thread.

Microsoft could be doing it for the publicity. You know, "the 360 is sold-out and can't meet demand". Makes it look like the popular console.
