LOL.....just when it looked like the 360 had finally done something right in Japan Yakuza 3 shows up to completely embarass it.

I take it Killzone 2 didn't see release in Japan this week?

If I remember correctly...Killzone 2 launches on April 23rd in Japan, David.

Nonsense!
Big new games of one type or the other, take the top spot in Japan nearly every week. Nothing new or embarassing about that.
Few games take the top spot for 2 consecutive weeks.
Going by your theory, every console that doesn't take the top spot in software every week is somehow "embarassed", which is clearly not the case.
360 sales this year are still up over 100% this year, while PS3 sales are down over 30%, and Wii sales are down over 60%.

Unless Sony pushes it in a biiig way, I don't think Killzone 2 will make much of a splash. They didn't even bother publishing the PS2 or PSP games. Sega published the PS2 game, but it never made the Famitsu weekly Top 30 or yearly Top 500. I think it did make the Media Create weekly Top 50, though.

Crawford - don't you have ANY knowledge of the video game industry? I was going by COMPARITIVE sales.....genius.

Star Ocean: TLH sold 164,000 copies in it's first week. Yakuza 3 sold 372,000. If you are unable to comprehend that 372,000 is MORE than 164,000 then i'm afraid there's nothing more i can do to help you.

Your little rant was completely pointless as it doesn't undermine the fact that Yakuza 3 sold roughly DOUBLE the copies Star Ocean did in just HALF the time, hence Star Ocean and by extension the Xbox 360 were embarassed.

Tricky things those sales figures......i'm sure you'll get the hang of them some day.

David: "Your little rant was completely pointless as it doesn't undermine the fact that Yakuza 3 sold roughly DOUBLE the copies Star Ocean did in just HALF the time"

It was more than double, but where are you getting half the time? Both were Thursday releases--the norm in Japan--and thus had the same four days of availability for their first week numbers.

@ David Macphail: "Crawford - don't you have ANY knowledge of the video game industry?"

Sure I do.
Real question is, do you?

"Star Ocean: TLH sold 164,000 copies in it's first week. Yakuza 3 sold 372,000. If you are unable to comprehend that 372,000 is MORE than 164,000 then i'm afraid there's nothing more i can do to help you."

372,000 is bigger than 164,000 so what?
Of course a big 3rd party game is gonna sell more on the PS3 than on the 360 in Japan.
Why?
Because the PS3 has three times the install base of the 360.
Equally, big 3rd party games almost always sell more on the 360 than on the PS3 in the US, because the 360 has a bigger install base than the PS3 in the US.
Nothing "embarrasing" about that in either case.
More consoles usually equals more games sales. It's not rocket science.

"Yakuza 3 sold roughly DOUBLE the copies Star Ocean did in just HALF the time, hence Star Ocean and by extension the Xbox 360 were embarassed."

# 1. Both games were released on a Thursday. They were on sale for exactly the same number of days.
# 2. As for Yakuza 3 selling double SO4, the PS3 has THREE times the install base of the 360 in Japan, no?
Yakuza 3 should be selling three times as much as SO4, going by PS3 install base alone.
If anything, the PS3 is UNDERperforming here. There is nothing for you to boast about here.

David Macphail said...

JJS - Star Ocean 4 was released LAST week....LOL! 1 week is half of two weeks! Glad i could clear that up for you.

Crawford - Star Ocean 4 was releaed LAST week you moron. Evidently you DON'T have any knowledge of the gaming industry.....LOL.

If you can't understand 2 weeks is more than 1 week you must be a complete idiot. Now you're just embarassing yourself.

The 360 is UNDERPERFORMING just about everywhere - there is nothing for you to brag about here.

Crawford said...

@ David Macphail : "Star Ocean 4 was releaed LAST week you moron. "

Are you stupid or just merely stark raving nuts?
Both Star Ocean 4 and Yakuza 3 spent exactly the same number of days in the charts in their first week, no?
And if you were actually comparing the 2 week sales of SO4 to Yakuza's one week sales, how come you quoted SO4's 4 day sales of 164,000 from LAST week, then?
In case you are too stupid to know, SO4 sold another 20,000 last week, no?
So if you were in reality comparing the the 2 week sales, you would have quoted 2 week sales of SO4.
Clearly, you were talking about SO4's FIST week sales here ad comparing it to Yakuza's first week sales, and when you were caught lying, you turned round and tried to cliam you were talking about SO4's 2 week sales.
That's pretty pathetic.
Not gonna work. Try again will ya?

"The 360 is UNDERPERFORMING just about everywhere "

Is that why the 360 outsold the PS3 by TWO TO ONE in the November and Decmber NPD figures, and solidly increased sales in the US, even while the PS3 sales FELL year on year, even in November and Decmber in the US?
And is that why the 360 has TRIPLED sales in Japan this year, even while the PS3's sales have fealen by 20% from last year's already fallen levels?
And is that why the 360 is ahead of the PS3 by over 7 million worldwide, and continues to increase the gap every yeay?
And is that why the PS2 outsold the GC and XBOX combined by close to three ties, but right now both the Wii and the 360 have solidly outsold the PS3?
And is that why the 360 business is making solid profits even while the PS3 continues to rack up massive losses?

David: "JJS - Star Ocean 4 was released LAST week....LOL! 1 week is half of two weeks! Glad i could clear that up for you."

Errr, sure, but most games are quite front-loaded. Comparing the average rate of sales for one game's first week versus a longer period of time for another game makes things silly. Yakuza 3 also outsold last year's Yakuza Kenzan, but it's pretty pointless to bring up that it did so in in 1% of the time.

I mean, if we're doing sales-per-day-since-release comparison, then Star Ocean 4 is currently ahead of every single PS3 game except Yakuza 3.

David Macphail said...

Crawford - are your parents brother and sister?

Yakuza 3 has sold roughly double in one week what Star Ocean did in TWO weeks. That's i what i said you braindead moron!

Look at the freaking figures above theese comments - they prove what i'm saying you mentally challenged insect.

I guess fanboys like to pretend sales figures don't exist.....not gonna work kid. Try again, right now you are making a pethetic, whining idiot out of yourself.

Also, did you really quote sales figures from last year??? LOL...living in the past is a sure sign of depression, i must've really got you angry.

The PS3 has sold MORE units PER YEAR then the Xbox 360 ever since it FIRST CAME OUT, look at the AVERAGE (10.5 VS 9.33) dumbass........

Crawford said...

@ David Macphail : "Crawford - are your parents brother and sister?"

You are talking about yourself here, yes?
There is no need to shout about your disgusting antecedents. We already know you are the product of a squint eyed, diseased goat, and his mother, and an utter imbecile to boot.
Only an inbred, retarded sub-human creature of your type could come up with such crass stupidity.

"Yakuza 3 has sold roughly double in one week what Star Ocean did in TWO weeks."

Yakuza has sold LESS than double what SO4 sold in 2 weeks, and the PS3 has THREE tomes the installed base of the 360 in Japan. With that 3 times the 360’s installed base, Yakuza should be selling 3 times SO4 by now, not just under twice. PS3 is still UNDERperforming, fool!

"Look at the freaking figures above theese comments - they prove what i'm saying "

The figures prove only go to prove you are talking nonsense, you retarded, inbred product of a diseased rhinoceros.

"The PS3 has sold MORE units PER YEAR then the Xbox 360 ever since it FIRST CAME OUT"

Tough!
The end result is that the 360 has currently outsold the PS3 by over 7 million as at today, with the gap increasing every month. I don’t care if it’s because the 360 launched 10 years before the PS3. After all, the PS2 launched a full year before the original XBOX as well didn’t it?
It's irrelevant how many PS3's were sold in 2007. What matters is which console has sold more in total TODAY, and which console is selling more right now. The 360 wins on both counts.
From the PS2 outselling the original XBOX by a massive over 5:1 ratio, Sony has now sunk so low, that you are reduced to boasting about the PS3 being behind by only 7 million.
That's pretty pathetic

Now why don't you be a good little boy, and stop playing with yo momma's computer, you retarded, imbecilic, inbred little cretin, with the mind of a retarded 5 year old, and let grownups discus matters they know something about?
