MC 2008-08-25 and Famitsu 2008-08-18: Things of Note


Based on the latest Famitsu numbers...

PSP comparisons: After 194 weeks, PSP is where PS2 was at 147.5 weeks (December 25, 2002), where DS was at 88.2 weeks (August 7, 2006), and where GBA was at 124.2 weeks (August 4, 2003).

PS3 comparisons: After 94 weeks, PS3 is where PS2 was at 21.0 weeks (July 22, 2000), where PSP was at 53.0 weeks (December 11, 2005), where GCN was at 99.7 weeks (August 7, 2003), and where Wii was at 23.0 weeks (May 5, 2007).

Wii comparisons: After 91 weeks, Wii is where GBA was at 88.9 weeks (November 30, 2002), where DS was at 69.7 weeks (March 30, 2006), where PS2 was at 97.0 weeks (January 6, 2002), and where PSP was at 151.7 weeks (November 2, 2007).

Not much notable to point out on software this week. No huge new games and the notable games with continued presence aren't behaving very differently than last time I showed them.

Based on the latest Media Create numbers...

DS vs PSP: Weekly shares of 57.5 / 42.5 bring total shares to 69.4 / 30.6. If DS stopped selling and PSP continued at this week's rate, it would catch up in 312.9 weeks (August 31, 2014).

PS3 vs Wii: Weekly shares of 21.5 / 78.5 bring total shares to 25.5 / 74.5. If Wii stopped selling and PS3 continued at this week's rate, it would catch up in 449.7 weeks (April 15, 2017).

X360 vs PS3: Weekly shares of 24.2 / 75.8 bring total shares to 21.9 / 78.1. If PS3 stopped selling and X360 continued at this week's rate, it would catch up in 527.9 weeks (October 14, 2018).

And here's something I think might be an interesting thing to do pretty regularly, even if this week it's most notable for being pretty boring. By doing a line graph for just two weeks with all the current systems, we can see the week over week change. This week most things are remarkably flat. PSP sticks out, but it's still less than a 10% drop.
