PS3 Outsells Wii and DS.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Gamezine
Other websites have reported that PS3 sales in the UK have risen by 999 per cent, but it's actually higher due to the fact that Chart-Track's system doesn't go any higher.

According to Chart-Track, sales of the PS3 have increased by over 999 per cent in the UK. The hardware and software tracker's system is actually limited to three digits, so the actual increase is higher, at around eleven times the previous week.

Of course, like in Japan, consumers have been waiting for the release of the PS3 Slim, with PS3 sales dropping by 20 per cent last week.

Xbox 360 sales are actually up again, this time by 29 per cent, compared to a 43 per cent increase a week earlier.

The PS3 Slim's sales puts the console ahead of all other video gaming hardware, at three times the sales of the Xbox 360, DS Lite and Nintendo Wii individually (they all sold around the same in the week ending 5th September).

As previously reported, PS3 software sales are also up, with a 17 per cent total increase, claiming third place behind the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360.

It's also interesting to note that when the PS2 Slim launched, sales increased by "only" 310 per cent over the previous week. Despite this, the PS2 Slim still sold 21 per cent more than the PS3 Slim in it's launch week - though the price of the system was much lower than the PS3 Slim is now.

"The longevity of this uplift very much depends on the time of year. The PS2 Slim was released in November, much closer to Christmas. We’ll have to wait and see how things work out for Sony this time," Chart-Track told MCV-UK.

The PS3 also saw a 15,000 per cent increase in sales in Japan, selling more weekly units than ever before at 150,000 units.
Thoughts?

Though it is outselling the Wii now and DS now because everyone all ready owns one of each(Or multiple if they own each type of DS).

Sony and Nintendo are both Japanese companies, I'm sure they've been competing for the longest time now. I don't know that that's really the case.

Besides, there's a ton of people on the island of Japan. It's probably the same thing that goes on in the US.

I disagree with this. I know loads of people that have bought a PS3 that haven't got a Wii or DS. Not just people buying PS3's though. There's a lot of people, especially in my school that have bought an xbox 360 given the choice of all 3.

Agreed. I only know two people who bought a PS3 before a Wii. I mean, when everyone has a Wii already, why not pick up a small Blu Ray player for $300? Especially when there are so many Blu Ray players on the market for much more than $300. If I didn't hate Sony, I'd get a PS3 because it makes economic sense now.
