    If I was Sony PR my press release would be 5 words long:

    Just wait till June assholes.

    A million seller
    on PS3: almost like
    waiting for Godot

    What in the fuck does that mean?
    EDIT: Just checked wikipedia. So you're saying there are no million sellers on PS3? Id be willing to be my cock that there are at least 8.

    Actually that was in response to Japanese sales. Still I plan on dropping that in every times someone says wait for... in relation to the PS3. Maybe I should think of a good gif to superimpose it on. Hmmmm.

    They dropped their largest OEM manufacturer in November and didn't pick up another until February. There were shortages whether you buy the excuse or not.

    They've managed to get
    the engine so that it can
    work on the 360

    as a matter of

    Wii and PC too

    Not necessarily surprised (it could do with a media furore to get some publicity) but sad, because it was bloody awesome.

    Also, since when was Samuel Beckett a French playwright?

    It's possible their own inventory count isn't how they want it to be, but having seen a bountiful amount in my store and noting that most of our other stores in the area are in the same situation makes it seem as if the shortages must be localized in nature, because our experience the past couple of months hasn't reflected the story they've presented.

    With GTA4 less than two weeks away what does everyone think the sales numbers will be? Obviously low on the charts since its released 3 days before the month ends but overall do u think in April/May it will see the kind of numbers Brawl did just on the 360?

    I am kind of curious how the splits will work cross console between the 360 and PS3, what are your guys' opinions?

    http://www.mcvuk.com/news/30239/Japan-100m-DS-software-units-sold
    The success of Nintendo’s DS knows no bounds in Japan, with the console’s software sales hitting a stonking 100 million units in the territory since launch.

    As IGN points out, Nintendo software is now as popular in Japan as ‘The Sims is in the entire world’. The top ten best-selling title are all pure first-party releases, with the exception of two Pokemon titles.

    The list is lead by New Super Mario Bros., which has shifted in excess of five million boxes in the territory.

    The figures, from Japan stats body Media Create, also reveal that Brain Age 2 (More Brain Training) has sold over four million units, as has Animal Crossing.

    The full top ten reads:

    1) New Super Mario Bros. (5,174,163 units)
    2) Brain Age 2 (4,835,159)
    3) Animal Crossing DS (4,693,662)
    4) Brain Age (3,771,440)
    5) Mario Kart DS (3,042,753)
    6) Pokemon Diamond (3,005,505)
    7) Pokemon Pearl (2,490,564)
    8) English Training DS (2,216,322)
    9) Mario Party DS (1,706,506)
    10) Big Brain Academy (1,654,285)

    Normally it takes just a few days for a big game to get a good part of its sales done. I don't see how it wouldn't chart at #1.

    So much fanwankery about the Wii being a poor, downtrodden underdog that's just a fad and full of crap shovelware that nobody buys games for.

    Because that's still new and hasn't been flogged to death yet.

    I'm sure you've seen the insane Wii figures. 721,000 sold in March in the US. What's Microsoft's take on that?

    We think Nintendo's success, to be honest, is great for us. They're doing great things to help broaden the audience in the industry. We're playing a role as well. And Xbox is a great complement to that experience. It's interesting, because we're not really targeting the same consumer with the same kind of experience, but in many ways we're finding that as we grow and broaden...a lot of that audience is going to be graduating up from the Wii experience. We think we're a great complement to that. What Nintendo's doing is great for the industry, but it's great for us as well.
    Why do they keep on saying this?
