The overall market crash was insane. Japan is going through something very similar. Its not a good past couple of months to be in the video game market.
With that said…Infamous hit the top 5 with 179,000 sold NPD.
Infamous sales aren’t bad, but the UFC game sold over twice that on the PS3 alone and over five times that on both PS3/360 platforms.
People are waiting for the price drop on the PS3. I expect a price drop when Madden 10 comes out.
I’d like tp hear some of the specs for the PS3 slim.
Economic downturn plus crazed compation from a american console plus price difference equals less PS3 sold in the US. Is this supposed to be surprising?
May of 2008 numbers tell a different story.
[452.6K] Nintendo DS
[208.7K] PlayStation 3
[186.6K] Xbox 360
It’s not about the price or competition I think. Right now it’s the reccession taking hold.
percentage of sales wise, Wii really took a hit and is almost level with the other 2 now, despite being a heck of a lot cheaper. Given the price of the base model PS3, though, it’s doing really good compared to the other, cheaper systems
