    is there an NPD like organization that keeps track of Europe? i dont think ive ever seen European sales data.

    There are a few organisations that keep track of sales data but they are seperated by country (so there's seperate sales numbers for the UK, France, Germany, etc). Outside of press releases, there's no real way to tell how well games or consoles sell throughout all of Europe.

    Anyway, I have a question, is the $500 PS3 very available in the US? I've heard people say they can't find one anywhere and I'm wondering if that's contributing to the sales figures.

    Nope, not that I've seen. And Sony seems to be sticking to their ratio of 80% 60GB and 20% 20GB. Sony should make more of those... then again, since Sony loses more money per 20GB sold than 60GB, maybe not.

    Anyway, some thoughts...

    The Wii being unavailable is NOT because of undersupply.
    The PS3 being available is NOT because of oversupply.

    The unveiling of Home and LBP was a good move on Sony, but was it really good enough to reverse the slump? My thought is that Joe Average (who doesn't listen to VG conferences) won't really care. Sony needs to do something big and attention getting quick.

    Can the Wii keep up the high sales? Will the new Paper Mario provide enough of a sales/attention boost?

    I think the Wii might be fucked if some stellar software with broad appeal doesn't hit soon. Its got great hardware sales, to be sure, but it's software just isn't dominating the charts like the 360's is.

    It's a damn good thing the console launched with Zelda, because honestly, there isn't anything else out there with a lot of meat to it (as in, not a minigame fest or shoddy port with tacked on controls). Poor software is going to start damaging the Wii's image soon, especially when the controls suck.
    I agree, and fortunately, SPM is coming soon. I assume that it'll sell well...Paper Mario 2 sold very well on the Cube, and Mario is always a strong brand. I have to assume it'll be a popular game.

    And for the crazies like me out there, Kororinpa: Marble Mania hits later this month, and Bust-A-Move Bash sometime in April.

    Edit: Wow, I was way off with the name. :lol:

    I'm sorry, but this just makes me crack a huge smile.

    Me too. I love my GBA, and I don't think I would trade it for a PS3.

    Wii Sports.

    Wii Play.
    That's not enough at all. The control is solid, but its still minigames. We need more adventures like Zelda. We need full games, stat.

    I'd like to blame Nintendo for all that game delaying they like to do... but where the fuck are the third parties? I see EA pumping out PS2-level shenanigans with pasted on motion controls left and right, but that is about it.

    The third parties took a while to jump on board. Most of them scoffed at the concept of the Wii and left Nintendo for dead... then E3 came and Nintendo shocked the hell out of everyone. "Holy shit, this is actually FUN?!" Third parties only became interested then, and iit's taking them a while to make decent games.

    As for sales of Mario, don't discount the game yet... Mario has wide appeal with lots of casual gamers (moms and such), and New Super Mario Bros. sold bazillions on DS.

    Edit: But of course, we're forgetting the main mystery this report has raised... who the hell had 480 Xboxen to sell?

    I'm sure Super Paper Mario will sell well, with established Nintendo fans. As for this new market Nintendo is trying to breech, I really don't know. It's got appeal with people who care about Mario games, and that is about the extent of it I think.

    New Super Mario Bros has sold over 4 million.

    I'm pretty sure Mario is rather popular with Nintendo's new market as well. ;)

    Has it? I don't own a DS so I don't pay much attention to the numbers but that is pretty fucking impressive. You have to think Nintendo has taken notice. I wonder if that is what Super Paper Mario is all about....

    Dreamcast: 0
    N64: 0
    PS1: 0

    The XBox is the clear winner in the "discontinued consoles" sales figures.

    You know, I look at DS sales, both in Japan and in the U.S., and I'm amazed at its meteoric rise.

    And then I remember that Dragon Quest IX is coming for the DS. I had better stock up on canned goods and shotguns; Japan will sink into the ocean, laden with joy-filled tears, and the End of Days will be upon us.

    I just checked our sellthrough for last month. We, as a chain, put through more volume than they've attribute to the entirety of Canada - which means something's not cricket. Considering the legislation requiring our reporting to be clean it would indicate to me that this in incomplete data.

    Which seems to be the case for most sales numbers outside of the US or Japan.

    Ho-leee shit. I don't think anyone could have predicted this. And it looks like even Europe aren't going to be able to bail sony out at this point, given that they don't even seem to be able to fill their preorders here in the UK. Every game retailer I've passed in the last couple of months has been desperately trying to force people into preordering ridiculous £550+ bundles (that's over $1000 for you yanks), often resorting to outright lies in the process, and even attempting to shaft the consoles that do sell! (check out 2nd link):

    Still, on the plus side, price drop, eh? I actually genuinely hope there is one.

    Yeah, the situation in the UK is a little wierd, to be honest. Usually people go apeshit over anything Playstation branded, but not when it costs HALF A FUCKING GRAND.

    Strange, that.

    Remember that price comparison Sony did back in like November where they tried to make the PS3 out to be cheaper than the 360? Reminds me a bit of that.

    "Hey, what's the Wii got for online?"

    "Nothing for the first 6 months, I think."

    I have had 2 ps2 in my lifetime

    Wow, forget the previous posts from NeoGAFers that were copied here. This takes every shock emoticon.
    (First guy)
    Exactly how is Wii Sports gameplay different from any other sports game? Just because you play it differently, does not mean the gameplay is different. Why do people not understand this? Does Zelda: TP (Wii) have more innovative gameplay than Zelda: TP (GC)? Is what you see on your TV different from one version to the next?

    (Second guy)
    Zelda TP Wii is imo more immersive than Zelda GC. Mimicking the actions of the avatar really adds to that more than what mere graphics can do imo.

    (First guy)
    Immersive = innovative? C'mon. Tell me how the gameplay is more INNOVATIVE?

    Unbelievable! Inconceivable!

    Although there are no insults, it kinda goes back to what I said before here

    If Sony does not drop the price of the PS3 in the US this year, I'm just going to come out and say it here, they are fucked. They're already 4 million behind 360, and will be 1 million behind Wii next month. Halo 3, along with a lot of lesser system sellers, are out on 360 this year, and PS3 really doesn't have anything to match it. I'm not saying they're d00med or anything, but in 2008 and beyond they will be playing catch up, and I don't know if they'll be able to.


    Also, DS almost hitting 500,000 in February is pretty ridiculous.

Halo 3, along with a lot of lesser system sellers, are out on 360 this year, and PS3 really doesn't have anything to match it. I'm not saying they're d00med or anything, but in 2008 and beyond they will be playing catch up, and I don't know if they'll be able to.


    Also, DS almost hitting 500,000 in February is pretty ridiculous.
    I'd say there should be more supply of the $500 model long before a price cut. But Sony have to ask themselves whether more sales are worth losing a ton more money.

    Btw, I'm not trying to come up with excuses but the 360 sold fairly slowly last year as well. It only started to start selling pretty well until after Gears came out.

    360 was sold out here through February though, so you can't really compare yet.

    But 360 was supply constrained in the early months. Some were breaking down and had to be replaced too.

    And yeah, February, the shortest month of the year, with numbers like that.
    (Yeah, yeah, day or so less, I know. :D )

    And I found the perfect image to put in the OP. :lol:

    Yes, yes you did. Dead Wii-sing?

    After the repeated dickery by Sony I was all set to savor a nice batch of freudenschade at their expense. Now they're getting outsold by the GBA? A 6 year old console? Ouch. This is making me feel bad for them.

    Fixed.

    And I labelled it as "Dead Rwiising". At least it looks like how it could sound.

    So you did. I hopped over to wiki since I couldn't remember how to spell it and it looks like it has an incorrect entry. I feel shamed.

    Don't worry, I'm not delighting in it.

    Some stats from GhaleonEB on NeoGAF (no links for proof to back them up, but let's just go with it.):

    A few random observations after staring at my spreadsheet:

    -360 has had the top-selling game four months in a row, (Gears, Gears, Lost Planet, Crackdown)

    -PS3 sales in four months are almost the same as the Wii after two, and just a hair over the 360 (tied factoring out January's extra week)

    -The Wii has sold in four months what it took the 360 7 1/2 months

    -PS3 tops 1m this month

    -360 tops 5m this month

    -360 is up 42% from last year, and 15% from the Xbox at the same point in its lifecycle

    -It took the Gamecube eight months to hit the Wii's LTD, and that's with a bigger GC launch.

    -February PS3 sales are lower than the PS2 ever sold so far

    -PS2 after 3 months > PS3 after 4 months

    *slow clap* Well played. Well played indeed.

    I think this has more to do with being a "mature" installed base. Really the only system that could conceivably compete with it is the DS and it's been lacking in real blockbuster titles. (Though when Pokemon hits...)

    Ouch.
