South African Console Sales Figures

58 second read

So this is exciting news isn’t it? GFK, the guys who track and report on all the retail sales figures in South Africa and around the world have put together some figures for to exclusively release.

I have them at the moment but to ensure that they are reported in an unbiased and fair manner I am going to get GFK to approve the way they are being used.

So if all goes to plan the figures will be out around lunch time tomorrow and I have to say that the numbers have suprised me in many ways.

Every platform has done very well and there is no overall winner from the numbers. But there does appear to be a certain console which is now quickly making up the back fall on the other two…

Any idea who is losing and may soon overtake their arch rivals?

    Wow. This is awesome news for the website…
    I just hope the wii isn’t winning. I think its useless!

  • janrik

    Wait. GFK is a german site?

    The same nation who’s silly policies around games is the reason why some content is not easily downloadble over live!

    Should be a good read tho… 👿

  • Fred

    I think the ps3 is in last but will take over eventually.

  • Peter

    Does it cover only ‘next gen’ machines? Or is the PS2 still considered a console in South Africa?

  • Wow, for such a usless piece of hardware it seems to be doing pretty well. Must be a “gimmick” or a “fad” 😉

    Hence it burns when its doing better than the big boys 😛

  • LazySAGamer

    PS2’s are very much still consoles and are tracked by GFK but we are only looking into next-gen consoles this time.

    We may talk about the handhelds and PS2 later though

  • LazySAGamer

    GFK are an international company… (we need to be nice to our new friends)
