You would be wrong on one account.

I don't dislike Nintendo.

I dislike Nintendo fanboys.

Key difference.

Pretty sad to see you try to twist these discussion based on my supposed allegiances. I've been relatively pro DS lately if you have been paying attention. ;)
All fanboys are as bad as each other so to single out one group says you do have something against the company in question.

None of these games, except maybe Tamagotchi are nearly as bad as licensed trash like Hulk, Matrix, Spiderman and other games that sell in huge numbers in America and Europe.

Or True Crimes, Darkwatch, Destroy all Humans, and all of the other shit I've had to sell at too high a rate in the last oh, eight months.

Teh hardware numbers should be a bit slower with these software sales, shouldn't they?

Btw. which of these is the harvest moon game? :D
On the contrary. I would bet that hardware numbers for the PSP/DS are up again this week, as we approach the holidays. This time of year always seems to boost sales.

Did the last HM GameCube game do that well in JPN? I know the GBA title did a solid amount (100k+ as I recall), but I dont remember how the GC titles have done.. I'm sure this will do fairly well in the US if nothing else considering the sales of AWL.

Around 70-100K IIRC. This Harvest Moon was a re-release, though.

Prediction: The PSP will bring in more revenue again!1!!

:lol

Thought I'd poke fun at myself to get this thread going on a lighthearted note. :D
I hate it when people do this during Horror movies when they are scared. They poke fun to ease the tension. Are you scared? Do you fear the DS' sales strength?

CHEAP SHOT! :)

In truth though, I really was under the impression that the value pack PSP at 24,999¥ was really the only unit available to buy in Japanese stores, as the core was essentially very difficult to find. Is this assumption incorrect? Does anyone know?

I've got no idea. Check amazon.co.jp?
I can't remember if it was Bebpo or someone else, but I was told that the core pack was only available online, and that even there it wasn't that easy to obtain.

Amazon.jp does have the core pack at 20,699¥, but it's sales ranking is very low, around 200 in just the games category. For reference, the value pack is around 75-80 or so. I don't know why this is, other than to assume it's tough to get one.

Other then the fact that revenue should matter the least when it comes to market share and profit, it still doesn't mean that all sales would come from only the value pack. Are you trying to convience anyone that not even one person was able to get their hands on and purchase a core pack? We cannot determine PSP's revenue by simply multiplying the price of the core pack by the amount sold.

I think you're confused. My joke on the subject and the question I posed to Fuzzy (or whoever else would know the answer) was in no way, shape or form a go-ahead to restart this discussion. It got way out of hand last week, I didn't exactly state it initially in the most neutral of ways (mentioning that it made more revenue than the DS, rather than it made a good amount of revenue in general was mistake numero uno), and quite frankly, it's a stupid and moot point, regardless of viewpoint.

End.

Can Xbox dip under 100 units sold in a week?
It has. I believe it was the week before Ninja Gaiden Black came out. I remember because when sales went to 150 or so (after it came out), people were like "OMg what's with the spike in Xbox sales?!".

Handheld chart updated again.



This week saw a few big milestones! PSP finally crossed 2 million sold LTD; a fine achievement.

DS has now outsold the PSP for 30 consecutive weeks, 3 times longer than the PSP's greatest run earlier this year.

The notes:
Sales of the top 100 titles totaled 559,708 units, 94.62% of last week's total and 75.12% of the weekly average.

Sixteen new titles ranked in the top 100, starting with top-ranked "Mario Party 7" and including "Shinobido Imashime" and "NBA Live 06." Only three new titles, however, sold 10,000 units or more, and new releases accounted for a somewhat low 38.10% of sales. The full-scale entry into the winter sales season is expected to come after next week.

"Mario Party 7" sold approximately 84,000 units. While this fell short of results for the previous title "Mario Party 6," which was launched last year and sold approximately 99,000 units in its first week, the title's performance was pretty much on par with that of "Mario Party 5," the installment before last, which went on sale a year ago and had first week sales of approximately 83,000 units. It thus appears that "Mario Party 7" has gotten off to a relatively smooth start. The GC platform, although to a small degree, drove the market, and GC sales will likely continue grow as the New Year holiday approaches.

Here's the time to selling 2 million units for some systems according to Dengeki. I've taken the liberty of slotting in the psp. The psp is possibly on track to being the strongest second system in a long time:

ps2 3 months
GBA 4 months
DS 5 months
psp 11 months
GC 16 months
N64 17 months

PSP is actually doing quite well.

Performance of the DS has just been phenomenal.

However, I think ultimately things are going to shake out so that one machine becomes insignificant.

PSP pulled a very decent number, next week will be huge since the Pokemon fans will unleash their fury
But is it a "real" Pokemon game, though? The last Pokemon game for the DS didn't do phenomenal.

It's Pokemon + Mysterious Dungeon, they are both popular in Japan, so we shall see how combining the two works out.

They wont be as huge as Ruby/ Sapphire, but they will be bigger than Pokemon Torouze, Pokemon Dash and all the spin offs, who knows, with a little luck they can be as big as Fire Red / Leaf Green

On average, DS sales have been steadily increasing since their low point in April. I wonder at what number of units/week they will finally level off at?
