That and the a decent last few weeks from a games standpoint. Sales should drop but the price drop should help. It is more notable now because both are the same price. PS3 should have a good couple of weeks.Second said:People couldn't find a Ps3, so they bought a X360
:O! How long are they?Tenbatsu said:
Someone made a bold prediction of its huge amount of sales on launch, so Im here to see whats going down.antispin said:Why "fiasco"?
DavidDayton said:Wait... I knew the 360 had been outselling the PS3 in Japan, but by more than 2:1 ? How long has that been true?
I need to visit the Sales threads more often.

It's not like companies don't play the game of getting bad (or at least startling) news out of the way, either. The announcement of the Wii name shortly before E3 comes to mind.Awntawn said:SE announcing the release date for the latest installment of their biggest franchise to the consumers who are just waiting with their wallets open is not the same as you showing your mom your report card.
Going by the Famitsu numbers Chris1964 posts, DQ VII sold about 400K after week five. Doubling that would still leave it much closer to 4 million than 5 million. There is that discrepancy between Famitsu's 3.89 million sales and the 4.15 milion shipments, though.Jonnyram said:Hmm, as I noticed was starting to happen last week, DQIX is selling now at double the pace DQVII did (from week 6-8). If it maintains this rate, 5 million is certainly achievable, I think.
After Monster Hunter 3's first week I was trying to show that games that sold between 500K and 1 million the first week almost never missed a million, and generated this list. Dynasty Warriors 5 was one of the few counterexamples on the list, but it's turned out to be the closest match. At least within the bounds of the PS2-and-later sales well-represented in Garaph, it's the game with the biggest first week that failed to hit a million--unless MH3 takes the crown.Kenka said:Damn, this MH3/DW5 parallel stuff is a gold ore.
Who's the genious who came (fairly early) with this very relevant comparision ? Sensational job.
