Japanese Sales Charts – PS3 is still winning

It is becoming more and more obvious that the Japanese do in fact like the PS3, they just didn’t think it was worth it’s previous price.

Since the price has been dropped and the 40GB model introduced it has beaten the Wii week on week for 3 weeks running now… or is it 4?

Either way it is doing well, this weeks figures are in…

PS3 – 47,011 (-18%)
Wii  – 35,793 (+2%)
360 –   6,296 (-5%)

So it had the greatest percentage drop but I don’t think that will worry anyone as the sales are still leading the pack.

On the software side things are slightly different as the top two change places

Wii  – 222,809
PS3 – 122,663
360 –   24,097

The number 1 next gen game in Japan for this week is Biohazard Umbrella Chronicles….

For all those people going huh, it’s the latest Resident Evil game…

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    I am very intrigued to see how the console war for this generation is going to pan out. The trend I see at the moment is that the Wii seems to have the so called casual gamer market cornered worldwide ; and the more serious gamer (I hesitate to use the word hardcore ; as it makes we want to dust of my old porn collection) are split between the English speaking world (US,Canada,UK etc) who are favouring the Xbox and Rest of the world backing the PS3.

    Based on personal experience , the casual gaming market makes up the bulk of the buying population. Of the 10-15 PS2 owners I have been acquainted with over the years I would say all barring 1 or 2 were casual gamers (unit stuck in the corner not plugged in with a game collection that invariably included whatever games came bundled with the console and some random sports game ) The conclusions I can draw from this are the following :
    1) They all bought there console when the prices dropped below the R2k mark
    2) They did not buy a lot of games
    3) They hardly ever played on the console.

    So to get to the point of this overly long post is what do you think the state of affairs will be a year down the line.
