"DS is ethering PSP in Japan (sales figures swipe)"


          

Japanese hardware sales for March 20 - March 26:

System: Weekly sales (2006 sales)

1. DSL - 119,986 (382,666)
2. NDS - 39,307 (591,952)
3. PS2 - 34,169 (414,470)
4. PSP - 31,077 (515,550)
5. GBASP 5,627 (82,499)
6. GBM - 4,883 (52,907)
7. NGC - 1,458 (39,853)
8. 360 - 1,415 (30,164) - L
9. XBX - 117 (1,213)- L
10. GBA - 98 (2,089)

DS Lite just came out and it's damn near at the PSP's total. The old DS still outsold it for the week and 06. They did about 150k combined to 34k for Sony just in 06. DS is close to 1 mil in 06 which will double PSP. Even worse is Nintendo is shipping another 700,000 DS Lites.

Combine this w/the UMD debacle and the PSP is has one foot in the grave.

As for software, Nintendo has 15 games in the top 30, PSP has 3.

shocked that the 360 is selling that much in Japan though...

Original Xbox was losing to Dreamcast...

So this is a improvement for them...

Nintendo is gaining some of its mojo back...

But i want to see numbers once the consoles come out...

it's around a tie stateside:

http://pspupdates.qj.net/PSP-Vs-Nintendo-DS-What-s-the-Score-so-Far-/pg/49/aid/13450

PSP Vs Nintendo DS: What's the Score so Far?

The Battle of the Japanese Consoles have been raging for a year and no one has seen this kind of conflict since Godzilla took on Mothra. Twelve months later, the scores, though not final, are out. So far DS and DS Lite has sold a total of 6,385,193 units in Japan (as of March 12). Sony's PSP sold only 3,135,588. The Japanese round clearly goes to Nintendo, but Sony isn't ready to thrown in the towel just yet. The U.S. round is a much closer fight. Of the 5.81 million units Sony shipped to the U.S. by the end of 2005, "more than 4 million" had been sold by mid February 2006. Meanwhile, Nintendo reported 3.97 million units of DS sold in the US by the end of 2005. So basically it's a tie. The fight's not over. And accountants are standing by to crunch the numbers as soon as they come in.

there's no doubt the UMD has been a huge failure as far as movies go, but PSP units are still selling.

I remember when the PSP first came out.....
You could find a used DS anywhere...
Now its the complete opposite...
Alot of the video games stores around me have used PSPs for days...

and I guess by GBA they mean the original one that doesn't even light up since the SP and Micro are both up their individually.

I mean, who the fuck is buying GBA with no lights?

and The Doc feels they just might always will.

The evolution of the Game Boy on up kind of makes them the GOATs in that regard despite going up against some rather innovative/stiff competition:

TurboExpress, Game Gear, Lynx (LOL), Nomad (possibly one of Sega's better ideas; wished Nintendo would have done the same -- they sorta did with GBA).

None of those were selling like the Game Boy, but the TurboExpress was probably one of the illest ideas ever...

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

we'll still find a reason to choose Japanese. Sometimes it's like "Folk, remember Atari?! We can do it too!" lol.

It's not what traditional console players are used to. Most of the big name games are ports of computer games (GRAW, COD2, Oblivion), or games that were originally intended for the computer (Halo games).
