    Well, no one should be expecting to do much more. It's capable of more than last gen and we will see games that prove it with no doubt.


    PS: I like the PS3 beat Wii for the 3rd week now.

    DS - 130,031
    Wii - 47,497
    PSP - 90,034
    PS3 - 56,211
    X360 - 6,006


    PSP did pretty good too it looks like.

    Liar BTW I am only kidding. Media Create will be closer in fact Wii might be up in that one. I wonder how much SMG will help Wii and how much GT5P will help PS3.

    Lol, that was a typo. It was supposed to read, "I see the PS3 beat...." I was thinking "looks like" and "I see" and I ended up typing like George Bush speaks.

    The key is that PS3 version of Winning Eleven is selling surprisingly well (>100k, no. 3 behind PS2 version), it points to the trend that PS2 owners in Japan are starting to pick up the PS3 as well, and more importantly, for major titles like WE, are picking up the PS3 version.

    Did you post the numbers for all 3 weeks in the Gen Video games area? I'm curious to see the trend over all 3.

    At least it beat it by real margins and not like when the X360 beat the PS3.

    Can we just start handing DSes out to Japanese kids when they're born and skip the middle man? Handheld gaming dominates over there. Is the commute time that bad that every kid needs a DS? I don't understand the phenomenon.

    The problem probably is that the apartments are so small, so maybe they don't want to be there for too long?
    Also, schools, High Schools and colleges have lots of student-founded clubs, so you'll want to bring your gaming system to the "Video Game Research" club to play with your mates.

    And let's face it, most consoles aren't easy to carry, so of course handhelds are going to dominate.

    Media Create shows the PS3 less than the Wii but the other source shows it as higher than the Wii. Which one is correct?

    Depends on the source. Media Create has it pegged at 2 weeks but Famitsu and VGChartz say it's still 3 weeks.

    Different retail chains in their samples can do that.


    Here's something funny, recall that other sales thread with the debate over VGChartz? I made a comment on how even respected tracking firms, MC and Famitsu specifically, can differ....

    Fanboy fodder to argue about, since they just can't play their games without attacking the competition. Right Cliff?

    Sony sold 183,217 PS3s in Japan in the four weeks to November 25, while Nintendo sold 159,193 Wii consoles, according to magazine publisher Enterbrain.

    Sorry if that adds to the confusion.
