well i guess everyone who wants one probably has one by now...
Kind of a funny article. The DS and Wii are still way ahead of the rest. The title makes it sound like there is cause for concern.
That's what I was thinking. Since it seems all of Japan will soon have a DS and a Wii, it's only a matter of time before hardware sales slow. But knowing the Japanese, they'll buy the systems multiple times to ensure it stays on top.
So what the sales are now just down to new issues at birth?
Haha, I agree with pretty much everyone here- the systems have to be reaching some sort of saturation point and those who wanted it have gotten. Maybe it's time to hit the "Break all units" button so the systems start failing and everyone has to buy a new one. Or, does only Sony do that?
Microsoft does that. My friend's 360 got "red-ringed" a few days ago.
I still dont have a wii yet
clearly, nintendo is finished
Oh, so did Mine- but my original Xbox actually worked up until about 2 months ago. So that's not quite as bad. Either way, MS has that switch to.
No it ain't, especially with Super Smash Bros Brawl coming out this holiday season. Technically, Nintendo's still breathing.
Pack it up Nintendo it's over.
it back to school time, people are forking out money for laptops and school supplies.
gaming sales are bound to take a hit this time of year.
If we use this logic, then the only people that wanted PS3s were the ebay sellers who bought it during the launch window.
GBA still sold 474? Wow.
You're... you're kinda slow, aint ya?
Different situation between the DS, Wii, and PS3- but I am mainly referring to DS. It has sold so many units that at this point of course sales are going to lower. That's just how it goes. PS3, being pricier and with a growing library, will more slowly pick up in sales. DS is pretty much owned by everyone including unborn fetus' in Japan. (That's Hypoerbole)
Software is going to drive hardware sales. Some of the systems sold poorly because of the software. The Gamecube sold under 100 units, and the GBA 474. Wow. Yeah, they are dying out because no more games are being made for either.
Microsoft STILL seems be struggling with the Japanese and Asian markets, and I attribute that not to their notorious and infamous hardware issues and failures from the XBox to the XBox 360 but due to the lack of decent overseas software. I'm sure if more people had an XBox 360 in Japan, there'd be more people filing complaints against Microsoft about repairs. And overseas shipping... ;-)
Alot of people are slowing down their shopping (and paying their damn bills) now in anticipation of the holidays and the inevitable holiday hot titles.
He's been here long enough, you would have thought the TFW2005 Smartassitis would have infected him by now.
I think the only reason PS3 went up in sales is because they began offering a free game or Blue Ray movie from I remember hearing back a while
