Well in Japan atleast...

The PS3 has sold more units in 1.5 months then the X360 has in over a year in the land of the Rising Sun... Guess there goes Blue Dragoon saving MS in Japan... Seriously, MS should just pull out of Japan and focus solely on Europe and America, they have no chance in hell in Japan when they have to go against Sony and Nintendo.

Oh and Nintendo has outsold both the PS3 and the X360, hehe.

One thing I find amusing is that out of all 3 companies, Nintendo was the only one to retract its target goals for the end of the year. MS still claims to be on track to hitting 10 million shipped while Sony is still claiming to be able to get out 1 million before Jan 1st. Nintendo has stated that they wont be able to hit 1 million in the US which is still more then Sony has delivered here, there goal is 1 million worldwide.

MS actually just claimed a few days ago that they are on track to exceed 10mil, beating their expectations.

Sad but true, any foriegn companies have no chance in japan. Nintendo and Sony own that place. Though I suppose its nice to see Microsoft trying harder in japan this time than they did with the first xbox.

No true... Apple is making a killing with the Ipod in Japan... I guess only Console should be considered ;)

I don't get it

First off, Microsoft has already shipped 10 million- why would it retract a fact?

Second off, Microsoft has claimed that they will have sold 10 million by the end of the year. With over 8 million already estimated to be sold, and selling hundreds of thousands a week for the Holiday rush, why retract? Why retract something that is pretty darn close to happening?

It is great to see a company retract their estimates when they can't hit it. But when a company is pretty close to hitting theirs, I can't see how the retracting company suddenly gets props

Sony on the other hand...

Second that. Seriously, Japs prolly waste more money on tech stuff than we do. But hey, I guess the PS3 will outsell the 360 over there in the land of Sony fan boys and girls. :D

You are retarded if you didn't see this coming from a mile away (PS3 outselling X360 in Japan).

Last gen pretty much paved the ground for how well the Xbox name would do in Japan. It's not like this should be a surprise for anyone. Blue Dragon certainly did sell more Xbox's than any other game, but you have to take that into context. That aside, one game, regardless of it's developer (especially if it's not a significant step in a major series), is not enough to make an entire culture attach to something they have no interest in.

Well, at least the 360 has some Japanese developers. I mean they are bankrolling the former Final Fantasy team. And Capcom is showing them much love. Worldwide 360 Sales > Japan's PS3 Sales.

Although we are starting to see that Japanese DS Sales > Worldwide 360 Sales :p

They don't to me. I am not interested in bug eyed Japanese anime-porn RPG's or gay **** like Pokemon. There is not a single game that was developed by a Japanese company that I have ever been interested in.

Haha I'm serious. I think games like the Final Fantasy series are a joke. Oh look I get to play a chick with blue hair and big fake boobs with a visible camel toe.
