Jiggy37 said:Wouldn't surprise me if some of the low Strikers sales can be attributed to the art style. Not that the GC game wasn't already heading in that direction stylistically, but they really amped up the I AM ANGER factor in the Wii game... Almost in a Western sort of sense.
But now in 2007, when DS has been in a staggering drought for the whole year.

I envision a similar thing happening with PS3 actually. FFXIII will come out a couple of years down the line, and the numbers will be "ok, but not great" and the whole cycle will repeat. It's kind of like the GC / Xbox position last gen - not a total failure, decent software sales, but nothing to feel triumphant about either. Maybe PSP2 will be like Wii/360.farnham said:its a very nice thing that the PSP finally shows some sales.. but unfortunately for the platform its way to late.. they should have done that back when the DS lite launched..
AniHawk said:Agreed on this end. Phoenix Wright 2, Hotel Dusk, Pokemon Pearl, and Sonic Rush Advance are the only 2007 releases I bought. There are three more for the rest of the year, but nothing I can see beyond them except Apollo Justice, AWDS 2, and DQIX whenever they hit the States.

And Ouendan 2.
If I adopted that system of buying habits, I probably wouldn't feel a drought either. Oh, what I'd do with the bargain bins...Pureauthor said:I game almost exclusively on my DS nowadays, and I don't recall any stretches where there were a lack of things to play on my system. Maybe it's because I just don't buy a new game until I finish an old one (which assures that there's always plenty of older games to pick up on the cheap), but... yeah.
Yes, which is a shame as SMS is 2x better than the original and 3x better than Mario Party. Actually SMS is a riot when played with 4 players, even my Pro Evo friends boot it all the time, which says a lot as they usually don't play anything else than PES. But well, maybe this game is an european thing only.Kurosaki Ichigo said:Super Mario Strikers is a failure, look at Mario Party being resurrected with Wii popularity. SMS didn't even match the first one numbers.

Okay, even allowing your silly proportions, 19k less when you're dealing with numbers like 65k is yes, a pretty fucking bad drop. And early January is suddenly a better selling season than late September? Really? Really??
Stop It said:Also, one question, if PSP sold 250k + this week, (Going by reports), what the hell are they all playing? even if EVERY piece of software went to new buyers, the games in the top 30 chart barely covers a 1:1 tie ratio, ouch.
Either you are new here and don't know how consoles launches work or you are just trying to downplay PSP.Laguna said:This are just lame exuses. We are talking about big sellers like FF7CC second week and MGPO first week sales and the tie ratio for this week didn´t match 1:1. Besides PS3 I haven´t seen any platform to perform that bad in that department. If you compare weekly software sales to weekly hardware sales for every other platform you´ll see that the former had been always higher. But this is no news for PSP this happened often to that system in past. That is also the main reason why the support has shrunken alot compared to last year (look at CESAs TGS study for reference).

Looking forward to the HW numbers.

Hcoregamer00 said:No, I think that the PSP will be the Sony version of the gamecube.
As long as Sony starts getting more aggressive in pricing the console could easily hit 40-50 million units before PSP2 comes out. Then release a lower priced model for $79.99 and then ride that out until the total LTD sales hit 70-80 million.

It will continue to have massive sales when "killer apps" like FF: Crisis Core are released and the holiday season rolls around.

donny2112 said:DOES NOT COMPUTE.
Do you realize that the PSP is probably just under 25 million worldwide, right now, >2.5 years after its release, and that the GBA, with no competition, sold 75 million in ~5 years?
Uhh... how does the non-success of new non-Wii branded games while Wii Play and Wii Sports still sit in the top 20 point to this?loosus said:And maybe -- just maybe -- "Wii"-branded games aren't the only games that people will want for the next five years.
I seem to recall GBA having a bit of competition those last few years.donny2112 said:the GBA, with no competition, sold 75 million in ~5 years?
Yes.fatty said:It's been a while since I've looked at a Media Create thread so I'm not used to seeing the PSP outsell the others by so much. Why is this? Is it from the release of the PSP Slim
