    And finally beats PS2! lol

    ...Why is PS2 so low?
    I guess everyone got one by now lol

    This is the first time I didn't *sigh* after looking at sales.

    Now let me clarify that I don't really care, it's just that I was brought into gaming when PS owned the market and I'm just so used to seeing that brand on top so it's always very odd and striking for me to see PS3 sell so bad week after week but now it's looking like status-quo for me.

    Two weeks, one week, hell, even one hour, I don't care, seeing PS on top (between consoles) is a good feeling.


    And I guess we can tie this in with Wii shortages?

    Japanese Wii allocations have been diverted to the US and Europe. They are also holding back many units for the launch of Wii Fit on Dec 1.



    PS3 hardware in Japan has been doing much better with the new SKU. Software, not so much. PS2 in Japan did the same thing. Hardware sold like crazy since it was the cheapest DVD player in Japan and DVD software spiked but PS2 software was weak. I recently saw that BR movies have increased in sales in Japan lately while PS3 software still falters (though DW 6 is doing damn good).
    The current US government is the type of government the founding fathers fought against and warned us about.

    America, the Dr. will free you now.

    Call me if Sony dominates in the US over the holiday season...

    It's good to see Sony is picking up on their home court, but if they plan to make up ground they need to dominate in the UK & US; the UK is looking positive, but the US not so much...

    If Sony can make up ground with their current lineup they should really start to make this a race in 2008 with all the well known IPs...

    So THAAAT'S how Koei stays in business. Motherfuckers LOVE the Musou games.


    Japanese people are a crazy bunch.
     
    There's a special kind of nerd though, who thinks computers will overtake mankind in thirty years, changing humanity in ways incomprehensible to us now, ignoring the third of the world without electricity. It gives spiritual significance to technology developed primarily for entertainment and warfare and gives nerds something to obsess over that isn't the crushing vacuousness of their lives.

    Common Capcom, release DMC4 already so that the PS3 can retain this momentum against the Wii.

    ^ So that Nintendo can release Super Smash Bros Brawl? For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction my friend.

    DMC4 = multiplat now, so people like me who have both systems can see compare which one is better before buying it too, which could also hurt Sony. DMC was never a system seller in the first place (RE is probably more notable). But w/e, I still have faith Capcom will still make it a great game.
