According to Neogaf it means that the store will stop selling PS2, PS3 and PSP. I don't know if it is true, or if the store has anything to do with gaiming.


Yes, but the question is why? Out of stock or  there is no interest. PS4 claims it's because of poor sale. OriGin said it's due stock.


ahh you meant like that. Their is no info on that post about why. I personally think that bad sales combined with bad profit margin for the store compared to space. I do think that the store isn't a full blown gaiming store.

I'm not sure what's behind the Brain Training DS boom. I don't believe it's the Wii interation that did it though. I'm going to take a guess than the DS spent another week over 200k, and that the Wii slipped just under 100k.

A reason for the Brain Training DS boom could also be the commercials "buy your mom a DS lite for mother day". A game like Brain Training along a DS lite for mom would make sense.

Anyway, let's wait for the numbers, before me make conclusions. 



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It is said that this group concluded that PS3 causes the increses of red figure. And it is said that red figure of shops sell PS3 is bigger than them don't sell PS3...

From this, it is a only rumor.

Finally, they decide to stop selling PS3. But there is something prevents to stop selling only PS3, so
 they decide to stop selling also PS2 and PSP.

@ robjoh

It looks like your assumptions were accurate.

So if I understood correctly, a shop decided to ditch the PS3 even if it meant that they couldn't sell the PS2 and PSP anymore? :O

 Probably yes.

Once again thanks y-koron! It is almost like clockwork that you post this the same time every week. How do you get this information? Doesn't Famitsu release on Thursday? It's only 11pm on Wednesday in Japan at the moment is it not?



wow, great legs for super paper mario!
