It was said that people who already wanted MGS already bought a PS3 at launch well it looks like that wasn't the case in Japan were the PS3 took the lead for the first time in a while. This is said to continue to many big japanese titles launching in the coming weeks.

Some strong numbers there. Real test is to see how long they stay there. I can't even imagine what will happen when FF13 comes out.

I think FF13 will be a bigger one (although I'm still wary because we've seen so very little of the game).

Anyone who ties up a real Dragon Quest could expect a couple million easily, that's still the biggest IP in Japan. Maybe after DQ9 comes out on DS, we'll see a late generation DQ10 for PS3.

lolerskates. In your dreams. The Wii has a 3:1 lead on the PS3 @ 25 million. The PsTriple woudl have to sell 16 million to catch up. And that's assuming the Wii sells nothing over the next years. Fat chance.

I don't think he was saying that PS3 would overtake Wii. Still, it certainly could happen if this generation is very long and Wii hype dies down. The last generation ended with the top platform selling over 120 million (PS2).

It is sad that the consumer can't recognize quality. Oh well, guess that explains McDonalds, Brittney Spears, and hip hop music. (nana2)

No but due to demand Sony will be making more and we should see them in retail in the coming weeks. Sony really under estimated the demand for the bundle.

Yeah I was considering buying one but I didn't pre-order, I wasn't aware that they were going to be so limited in quantity. Good to hear there's more on the way though - can't spend the $500 right now anyway.

Man, I wish I wanted this game. Sucks when a hyped AAA title comes out and you can bring yourself to care enough :(

Maybe I'm just getting old or something....

/off topic Have you heard any rumors about the upcoming PS3 refresh as of late? MGS 4 looks almost too sweet to pass up!

I'm hoping when people enjoy MGS 4 they will be tempted to buy MGS3. That game deserves to sell much more than it did and IMO is still the best MGS.

Ooooh, do it. You'll be surprised with how good it is for such an old(ish) game. :)

The cutscenes are just as amazing, though not as much eye candy.

Do you know if it's supported by any PS2 emulator? I really don't think I could stand my ps2 being connected to my hdtv via scart(FFXII was already pretty hard to get through). :o

Other then smaller CPU and GPU I can't think of anything they would need to refresh.

Well I wouldn't mind having a smaller one, but hey that's what modding is for! :D I really wish I could get my hands on a 60Gb version of the ps3 somehow...
