April 2009 Hardware Sales
- 360 outsold PS3 by 48K in the US, yet the PS3 outsold the 360 by 93,052 in Japan putting PS3 ahead by the month by 45,052 for the combined US+Japan regions (we don’t have good sales data on other regions). Which system needs a price drop?
- PS3 sold almost exactly the same for the month in Japan and the US despite the US being a much larger market.
- Obviously, the new Nintendo DSi model had a fantastic launch and really dominated the sales charts for the month.
- Both Wii and PSP have had dramatic sales drops from this time last year. The Wii sold less than half of what it did in April 2008 and the PSP’s drop was only slightly less steep.
