40GB PS3 sells 50,000 in first day in Japan

Updated: Sales of Sony's PS3 video games console surged 300 per cent after the company released a cheaper model in Japan last week, according to leaked survey data.

Sony Japan introduced the new PS3 model with a 40GB hard disk drive on November 11. One day later, local PS3 weekly sales figures had soared from an average of 16,000 to almost 66,000.

Sony PS3 40GB Ceramic White Japan model The figures are contained in preliminary data from the latest edition of a regular survey by Japan-based video games publisher and market survey firm, Enterbrain.

The substantial surge in weekly sales comes despite the release of the console occurring on the last day of the week. It is unclear what proportion of the sales resulted from pre-orders.

PS3 takes top spot

The huge increase in sales enabled the PS3 to take the top spot in full-sized console sales from Nintendo's Wii console for the first time. The Wii typically sells less than 35,000 per week in Japan, although sales have risen to 37,500 following the release of the popular game, Super Mario Galaxy.

The 40GB unit retails for $100 less than older models. The new console also lacks some features, including a flash memory device reader, two of the original four USB ports, and backwards compatibility with PS2 games. The Japanese version of the 40GB PS3 features a new 'Ceramic White' case color.

Update Nov 16
: Japanese entertainment market data firm, Media Create, reported the following sales figures for games consoles in Japan for the week November 5 to November 11. Media Create's sales figures appear to cover a slightly earlier period than the preliminary numbers from Enterbrain and Famitsu that we published earlier. Media Create also reported that the PS3 title, Shin Sangoku Musou 5, was the biggest selling full-priced game of the week.

PS3        55,924
Wii          34,546
PS2           9,043
Xbox 360  5,817 

    

GREAT STUFF!! More people to

GREAT STUFF!! More people to play Warhawk, UT3, HAZE!! YEAH BABY!!! Get a PS3 even if just for Drakes Fortune, it's AMMMMAAAAZING!!

The PS3 is dying

This does'nt mean anything, just some Japnese fanbois who don't know Apple invented White six years ago.

The PS3 will fade and die, Sony screwed up from the get go.

BluRay is a joke and they can't even play PS2 games any more. Dump it and Get an Xbox allready.

ps3 failing?

what are you talking about you sound like someone who just loves xbox. if you look at your stats you will realize even ps2 was outselling 360, and so is the ps3. it is indeed a supreme machine. 360 is failing with its slowing sales and it is literally failing with its 33% failure rate. and even if ps3 is not selling like 360, the ps2 will and they get more income as far as games do than microsoft. shut the hell up and get your facts straight buddy. blu ray is definitely doing better than hd dvds. it is the disc of the future obviously more space

xbox cons

I dont know why u guys are always putting sony down grow up man any console is good
really and too be honest gears, halo, and a few others are really worth buying
and yeah I think sony may have stepped in the future a little to soon with blue ray
but think about it if u are looking for a blue ray player ps3 is the cheapest
cause blue ray players are mostly selling for 1000 or more so the decesion is yours in what games u want last couple of years microsoft got beat this time they might pull it off all I know is these messed up 360s there selling something to do with red light
and having to return your 360 isnt helping microsoft at all.

I think your comment only

I think your comment only strengthens PS3’s reputation because it makes people realize what kind losers buys xbox.

Sold my 360, got a ps3

Y would I get a 360, already got my ps3 and sold my 360, going to 360 again would be like taking a giant leap backwords, have fun with Mass Effect and Lost Odyssey, it's all u've got to GOW 2 is out way out in 2009 some time

Wow d%@&#* we got more

Wow d**ksh**t we got more games released like fall out 3 and more then GOW 2 besides GOW2 isnt coming out in 2009?

F***tard doesnt even know when games comes out and BESIDES go check the graphics for fall out 3 on ps3 and xbox 360 and COMPARE AND WATCH 360 OWN YOUR N***AR CIGGARS N***ER S**TS.

bro do you have tourettes?

bro do you have tourettes? take a chill pill.

does the 360 look better in any significant way? not that i can see and thats all that matters. they are the same system in a nutshell. they both play call of duty or battlefield. they each have there own exclusives. so instead of swearing up a storm about ps3, just go back to your 360 and have fun with it. 360 vs ps3 is stupid.

Knucklehead...

Seriously, has making an unintelligent (and borderline racist) comment like this made your life any better?

WA WA WAAAAAAAAAAA!

Man, what a cry baby. The PS3 is going to sell craploads in Japan, and the 360 will do nothing there. Get over it. The PS3 is outselling the 360 in Europe and Japan, and will make up some ground in North America. Get over it. ;)

Yes, get an Xbox. Then they

Yes, get an Xbox. Then they can experience the joys of returning their broken, sh*tty console once a month. Hell in between the times they have to return it to Microsoft to get a new one they might actually be able to play a game once in a while. Oh wait. I forgot there are almost no good games on Xbox that aren't available on other platforms and the few good exclusives they do have are typically over in 8 hours. Enjoy your pile of sh*t.

You mean dump a PS3 for the

You mean dump a PS3 for the Red Ring of Death Xbox 360 that can't even last one week without dieing? No thanks!

Actually the xbox is dead

You are blind.
The xbox is dead for 3 years now.
And the xbox 360, well, is dying, literally (1 of 3 is already dead, the rest will die)
Obviously you dont have the money to afford top technology, like a TV FullHD and Bluray, since it just better than anything you have seen, just wait a couple of years, when you can afford top technology, until then have fun with your dying xbox 360.

Xbox isnt doing great in

Xbox isnt doing great in japan until most recent its even been beat by the GBA on several occasions, ps3 is doing way better than 360 over there it is has sold more even though its been out for less time. The ps3 has sold just as many systems that 360 did in its first year at a higher price to say its dying is just stupid there is room for 3 thats not going to change at least no time soon.

The above poster is clearly

you people still promoting

you people still promoting the XBox are so stupid. PS3 fails? HA how about 2 years of hardware failures! Answer that. You can have all the (so called) great games you want but if you system brakes when you play them those games are pointless.

How do you keep saying 360 is better when they keep braking? WHY tell me WHY!!!!!!!!

Great job Sony!

Sony is the best! Xbox is xcrap and every unit will all suffer the rrod. 360 will be third this generation. Go Sony PS3!

You are just a big A**hole

You are just a big asshole and this is why you leave these stupid comments.

Hahaha. I'm sorry, I just

Hahaha. I'm sorry, I just have to laugh at you for that. Hahaha

stupidity at its highest

ur realy dum you kknow that u fanboy

Sounds like an orgy of

Sounds like an orgy of flaming ps3 fanboys here. Everybody has their own tastes, the 360 is getting more reliable and if it does break you get a new one for free. Besides, so far performance wise, they seem to be doing about the same despite the "superior ps3 hardware". Really it boils down to if you would take ps3 exclusives over 360 exclusives and if you like live better than the ps equivalent. So seriously people, stop worrying about your game consels and find a girlfriend. Honestly, I would take Mass Effect, Halo 3, Lost Oddessy, Forza 2, Ace Combat 6, Blue Dragon and all of the other 360 exclusives over the ps3 exclusives any day.

F*** you xbox sucks

F*** you xbox sucks

You sir are a narrow minded

You sir are a narrow minded moron Fanboi.

dumbass?

umm idiot you can play ps2 games on a ps3 all of mine work fine i even went out and bought more all work fine xbox sucks balls the only game that sells is halo 3 but gta4 is gonna blow that away.. xbox is soo cheap anyways they make pay per month after buying the system and games... blue ray player its self is over 1000$ smart ass that covers the price itself plus u can upload movies download ps games on it have i.m music pics play on it with you psp if you have one (i hate it tho)controllers that come with it are wireless wireless internet and can connect your keyboard and mouse to it (not that the internet is any good...) better graphics then the xbox 360... xbox does have gameplay ill give it that but just like the ps2 when it first came out it was all about graphics now look at ps2 games now...imagine that but with excellent graphics.....

wow you obviously dont know

wow you obviously dont know a thing about ps3s. they do play ps2 and ps1 games with out a prob. even the 40gb system has all the resources, the only thing it doesnt have is wi fi. but its still blows the 360 out of the water. so dont hate the ps3 just because its better.

360 sucks

ps3 plays ps2 games, has more memory ,blue-ray is more high def than hd,online play is "FREE",you can use a computer hard drive,does not have a tray,in spain some have a built in grill,unchared,home beta,heavenly sword,lair and more

360 sucks

ps3 has more memory the 360,blueray is more high def than hd,uncharted lair heavenly sword home beta all ps2 games and more, online play is "FREE"!!!!!!!!!360 sucks

You have no idea

First off, Blu-ray is the future storage media disk with 20 more gig memory space than 360. second off the PlayStation 3 can play PlayStation 2 games (only the 40 gig model can't). The PS3 is overall a better system with a 8.6 score vs 360's 8.2. the only thing 360 has on the PS3 is Xbox Live is a more developed online server, but of course you have to pay $50 a year for that and PlayStation Network is free and we can also surf the web with 100% virus-free worry. Sony owns!!

To all you 360 hardcore fans

Blu ray is the future of Media storage in a disk format. what is so special is that it is read with a blue laser a in a couple years will kill DVD's just as DVD'd killed VHS. DVD= 5 gig storage H-D DVD= 30 gig storage Blu-ray= 50 gig storage.
All you people should stop putting down PS3 and realize it is a very good system, worthy of the huge price tag $499 for 80 gig (40 gig just sucks), and when Home finally comes out... all you 360 fanboys and fangirls are gonna find a PS3 in your house when the various types of red rings (watch out for 1 ring and 3 rings "ring of death") get on your nerves and you finally give PS3 and chance and find out it is a pretty good system.

im afraid bluray is

im afraid bluray is everthing these days, didnt you hear? hddvd was an epic fail, and with bluray theres plenty of wiggle room for a step up in future. xbox's are built together like bigmacs, either way you treat it its still not gonna be usefull for long.
p.s i have 13 ps2 games and 5 ps1 games that i play on my ps3

I have both the 360 and the

I have both the 360 and the 60g PS3, I love them both I'm glad to hear the good news. Great new releases this week I hope Sony does well.

Xbox is extinct...

Only a couple of short-lived years ahead for the idiot-box... Sony is finally doing the right thing and will come out on top of these console wars in the end.

Its selling as well as the 360 did with no reason to buy it yet

@ XboxXboxXbox

You do know that the PS3 has actually sold the same amount of consoles in its first year as the 360 did?

That's with none of its big games released and at a high price. Its also only been out in Europe for 7 months.

Here are the exclusive games due out on it next year:

Metal Gear Solid 4
Gran Turismo 5
Final Fantasy 13
Tekken 6
LittleBigPlanet
Killzone 2
L.A. Noire
The Agency
Coded Arms: Assault
Eight Days
FIA World Touring Car Championship
The Getaway 3
Red Dead Revolver 2
Heavy Rain
Infamous

Compared to these on the 360 (Games released on the PC as well aren't exclusives)

Banjo-Kazooie 3
Dance Dance Revolution Universe 2
Dogtag
Fable 2
Magna Carta 2
Mobile Ops: The One Year War
Ninja Gaiden 2
Too Human

I think we can all see which console is going to do best next year especially when the average member of the public knows that the PS3 is over 100 times more reliable than the 360.

Soul Calibur 4 should be PS3

Soul Calibur 4 should be PS3 exclusive, as far as I'm concerned. Micro$oft can't make decent controllers for fighters anyways.

A year from now it will be all PS3.. and poor 360 will be third again, just like its pappy.

shut the hell up a** hole

shut the hell up ass hole ^^^^^

PS3 will outlast XBOX 360

Despite having own a XBOX 360, I cannot but be very envy on PS3. I am also a Tech Geek, and PS3 have so much to offer, including having some of the most beautifully crafted games graphics. The Blu ray storage is tremendous and I totally believe games like Ratchet and Clank cannot do with just a simple dinosaur age DVD storage capacity, it require blu-ray.

The Blu-ray is fantastic, and the DVD upscaling is marvelous. The PSP remote feature with PS3 is fantastic. I was able to run linux on top of it.

The XBOX 360 is not too shabby, but I think PS3 for its new price point have done some of its magic.

PS3 is dying, Xbox 360 is dead

PS3 with Blu-ray, remote play, high cap storage for games,dual shock and etc will make PS3 to last for years to come. Xbox 360 (Another American Failure) will kow tow to PS3 as being the more superior game console + Media Player.

I uses Linux on PS3 and it isone of the best system I have without a costly investment.

PS3 rules ! In One year, here is the prediction:

Top Console sales month over month,

1. WII
2. PS3
3. TBD
4. XBOX 360

''By XboxXboxXbox'' Enough

''By XboxXboxXbox''

Enough said.

Xbox Fanboy

And so it begins....the death of the 360, and the reign of the PS3.

$50 more then the premium

$50 more then the premium that you have to replace every 6 months, oh no.

The PS3 is alive and doing just fine in Japan, USA, & the World

The above Xbox fanboy has it all wrong, as these kids usually do. PS3 is alive and kicking with its new model and price cut plus slew of new great games coming out.
In reality, it is HD DVD that is quickly fading and dying and the PS3s Blu-ray capability will serve it well throughout its 10-year lifespan.

well at least ps3 users can

well at least ps3 users can actully use there consoles instead of having to send it off for repair 3 times before the garenty runs out... and having to wait 8 weeks each time for it to come back. so really your actully dumping your xbox in the bin because it can't work!
you might wana play as much as you can until it breaks! lol

"Japnese fanbois" coming

"Japnese fanbois"

coming from the mouth of a redneck fanboy it doesn't mean much.

xbox is a joke. only idiots

xbox is a joke. only idiots buy that thing. no ff13 or gt5 or mgs4. no socom? no thanks. Sony still rules gaming.

I want a white one to match my apple ipod,

I like my game systems to match my decor and outfits, that is why the 360 face plates worked so well for me and why I am buying a new PS3.

Woot woot, ps I luv the Japs, or orientals as they call themselfs.

bitter xbot...

bitter xbot...

PS3's are selling as fast as

PS3's are selling as fast as the PS2 and xbox360 did. Hardly a failure considering the higher price per console up until now. Also, remember that the xbox360 cannot play ps2 games either.

retard

ps3 is dying? they're not even selling in japan, and they manage to overtake the number one system for a lil bit. go play gaylo and have fun getting beat up in junior high with the rest of the special kids. LOL dying. you sound scared

PS3 Will Ultimately Be THE KING!

The PS3 is slowly regaining the top spot! It's just a matter of time! Ps3 has a great lineup of EXCLUSIVE GAMES coming out next year on top of the already fantastic EXCLUSIVE GAMES that are already out this year! HAZE, RATCHET AND CLANK, UNCHARTED, WARKHAWK, HEAVENLY SWORD, UNREAL TOURNAMENT 3, AND MANY MORE. The xbox already had its top system seller game out and has nothing left for next year! PS3 at least has HOME, LITTLE BIG PLANET, METAL GEAR SOLID, FINAL FANTASY... Do i need to say more? PS3 will be the champion!

The ps3 is not dying! the xbox is dying in japan!

Are you retarded? you say that the ps3 is dying look at the xbox in japan how many units does it move each month? like 3,000 i think what you meant to say was the xbox360 is dying! i have both xbox360 and ps3 and love them both dont be a fanboi

What is the big deal ??

Everyone knew that once the PS3 dropped it's price to an affordable amount, people would go for it. Now, the question is are the Japanense buying the PS3 for games or the Blu-ray movie playback ? The was the problem with the PS2...people bought it for the DVD playback as it was the cheaper player.

Time will tell who beats who. I think both systems (Xbox 360 and PS3) are great and I own both. I think Sony and M$ should stop putting out ONE model and stick with it.

Xbox broke only PS3 now

Xbox broke and I dumped it but I kept my PS3, so thanks for the advice but I'm all about quality.

Wow PS3 sales have surged

Wow PS3 sales have surged considerably, however it will most likely only last for about 1 month then go back down to about 20,000 Units. I really don't see why Microsoft just don't cancel the Xbox 360 in Japan. In 100 weeks the Xbox 360 hasn't even sold 500,000 units. The PS3 has sold about 1,400,000 units within 50 weeks.

This is how i see the console war will finish.

The 360 will do well in America and absoultly sh*t everywhere else. They have realesed all of their big games ( eg- Gears and Halo 3 )and far as i can see have no major titles for 2008. Having said that i think they will have a good Christmas 07. They have no more extreme momentum and will eventually run out of steam. Also i believe that DVD will eventually f*ck them and HD DVD will flop.

The PS3 has had a rocky start but is starting to gain legs with games such as Resistance, Motorstorm, Warhawk, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted and a few others. Seeing as the Playstation Family's Library of games just Dwarf's those of Microsofts and Nintendo's I can see them closing the gap between the 360 and the Wii in 2008. Christmas 07 will help them considerably and with other Unique games such as Little Big Planet coming soon, I can't see them going wrong.
- Free online
- Blu - Ray
- Reliable Console
- Had a recent price cut
- Huge Library of games ( BIG GUNS COMING IN 2008 )

I think the PS3 will win the console war, a major factor in deciding this is Blu-Ray.

And finally the Wii, which in MY opinion is a fad, like Pokomeon cards in 2000-2001. It has graphics like a PS2, no online (if it has it is sh*t), a controler that looks like a DILDO (chad warden phrase - youtube) and i cant see it lasting for more than 3 years. The Wii is not a TRUE next gen console.

Blue ray is as big a joke as

Blue ray is as big a joke as the CDRom drive and the Dvd drive. Noone needed extra space then and we don't need it now. I know! Let's go back to catridges! Lol...in case you're wondering, I was being sarcastic.

What do PS3 users need with a 360 when we've got Heavenly Sword, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted: DF, Folklore, Resistance, White Knight Story, Home, Little Big Planet, The Eye of Judgement, Killzone, GT, DMC4, Tekken 6, Metal Gear Solid 4 & Final Fantasy XIII+...etc

SURPRISE SYSTEM SELLER AP

The big system seller in japan this week was dynasty warriors 6, with about 200,000 first day sales (almost 2x super mario galaxy).

I can see why it sold so much, it looks awsome, especially the new swimming aspect of the game. I am definitely buying this game when it hits UK.

You're an idiot.

You're an idiot.

^^^^^ How does it feel

^^^^^

How does it feel backing a console thats going to come last?

Fu** Xbox. I'm tired of

Fu** Xbox. I'm tired of waiting for mine to come back from MS (Yeah, it got RROD, surprise surprise).
I'm getting a 40GB model this christmas. Free online play ftw!

XD talk about Fanboi

wow the poster above me is a real sour puss...
i dont really care about this news but wow
seriously go play your games you noob...

sony inst going to die ...

Nintendo failed 2 generations in a role (N64,GC)
and they are alive an kicking...

M$ failed last gen (they are alive and kicking)

Why would anybody buy an

Why would anybody buy an xblob, its a piece of crap. rrod, even with the elite. hahahahhahahahahahahahahhaa

Well done sony.

Sony knows how to make hardware, MS does not. Its a software company.

Japanese fans simply know what they want.

XboxXboxXbox just proved his intelligence level in his post above since he doesn't know how to spell simple words. I truly hope his fellow Xbox fans are not as inarticulate as he is, but then again, I have been wrong before. Sony simply released a version of the PS3 that does not have the features that some people do not want and the price is lower due to that. The sales for the 40 gig PS3 in Japan are very good thus far. I hope this trend continues.

2008 is PS3's for the taking!

To the guy above me... I bet you drive a Ford don't you? Imagine if Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc... were on the PS3. It could've easily happened. The PS3 hardware could support those games with ease, but Microsoft and EA keep gobbling up developer companies until they control the whole damn gaming industry.

Ask yourself this... would you rather play 360 games on a PS3 or PS3 games on a 360?

If either the PS3 or 360 has to lose this war I would much rather see the 360 lose, because at least I know my PS3 will work for another 10+ years. Boycott that garbage hardware called 360 and eventually Microsoft will be forced to bring it's games to the PS3 just like Sega had their console debacles from the previous generations.

I'm still waiting on consumer groups to call for lawsuits and recalls on the 360's shotty life-span.

Good!!

Backwards compatibility is the most USELESS feature any system can come out with. It's great for the 1st 6th months, but now I don't play any PS2 games, why would I. If want to I still have my PS2 but it's not been used in forever(except for GH1 and GH2 during parties). Cut the cost, get more units sold, ship good software (which is coming) and PS3 will be a contender. Good job Sony.

u dumb a** xbobxxboob guy u

u dumb ass xbobxxboob guy u have no idea remember ur little friend RROD ...lolzzzzzzzzzzzzjust stick u head in ur butt and keep playing that s**tass game jelo 3...lolzzzzzzzz thats funnny

So what? The PS3 still

So what? The PS3 still sucks. Anyone with a brain should know that by now. The Wii will still outsell this lame excuse for a gaming console. Not to mention my most favorite console the Xbox 360 still beats the PS3. The PS3 just can't touch the great American power of the Xbox 360. It rumbles the Earth of sheer excellence, and it radiates American perfection. It roars power, and it sits on awesomeness. The PS3 is just Asian crap all around.

Finally!!

PS3 is having a great

PS3 is having a great recovery. Many wanted a PS3 since it was launched but the price made people hold for later.

Sales and consumer preferences gave information to Sony on what the price and features should have been on the console. They did well for releasing a cheaper model.

The system has great potential and despite the lacklaster games due to a late launch and low sales because of price, there are lots of mindblowing games coming to it and the consumer is starting to notice what the product was all about including features unique to the PS3.

Once Sony also makes a succesful ad campaign showing PSN, unique exclusive titles and Home it will pick up even farther.

PS3 dying? hahah Only in your dreams

Your nightmares are closer to reality. PS3 Has not faded, everytime the get off a new version the thing sells like crazy, its SOld MUCH better than the 360 did its first year and will catch up to the 360 (how can some people forget that it still costs like 100$ more than the 360?) If they actually Lowered the price Below that of the 360 and it sold worse, THAN you morons might have proof, but the sad fact is that even costing more and selling, its progressing way more so than the other consoles. If bluray was a joke, then i guess game devs wouldnt be taking advantage of it either haha. And again, the 360 is "really" dying in the rest of the world, the US is its last great battlefield.

And You better get used to people putting the 360 in the closet, Halo 3 was the PEAK of the 360 (great game but thats a fact). Theres nothing else that will compare to the unison of Halo 3 Ever again on the 360. Mass effect might do some, but it only goes down from here. PS3's still way on its way up. So be careful of those nightmares, theyre closer to reality than you are :P

I wonder if theyre going to release that white version over here..

Xbox you don't know what

Xbox you don't know what your talking about the XBox 360 can't play half of the original games anyway.

PS3 won't die

Nothing with 5.59 million units worldwide will die.

Then I guess the 360 is

Then I guess the 360 is really here to stay with over 12 million units.

Home made it just plays better!

Eyaaaah! Sony will keep on fighting and make a heros comeback. xboxxboxxbox fanboi stop being a hater.

@xboxxboxxbox you sir are a

@xboxxboxxbox
you sir are a moron, go and play your crappy 360..... ooops it has rrod lol

Yeah, the PS3 is dead

Yeah, the PS3 is dead alright...

/end sarcasm

Don't be stupid, the PS3 is here to stay. Although Sony will not rule the market share as they have in the past, they will still kick the pants off of MS and their Fix-box 360.

Great job with the FUD

Great Job Xbox xbox xbox using the FUD marketing strategies we taught you.Have you hit your quota today of doing at least 20 boards??Get on it.Dont forget to hit thoose Apple leopard boards also.!!!

FUD, Fear, uncertainty and doubt, a marketing or political strategy; FUD,

Xbox is the one dying

Funny how xbots come on here saying the PS3 is dying when clearly it is on the rise. No where does it even say anything about the xbox sales. Why? Because it is pretty much NON-EXISTENT in Japan. Just get rid of your brick of a console already before it RROD and get a PS3. You know all the good games are ONLY coming on the PS3 this year and next year and beyond.

Retard, PS3 is on the rise

Retard, PS3 is on the rise in Japan. That does mean over the whole entertainment industry, just a fair portion of it.

The PS3 is dying

I also have a small p#nis.

Get a PS3!

The PS3 have all the best games! They have the best platformer, RPGs, Actions! The best of all world!

PS3 have it right from the get go and blu-ray ownz! Xbox kept on having addons and die out every few days. Dump that crappy box, all their games are also on PC and better on PC anyways. They got no good exclusive, halo and gears of war is also on PC so they aren't excusives at all! xbox got no good exclusives! dump that sh*t box and get a PS3! PS3 is future proof. Better exclusive games that you cannot find anywhere else. Plays true High Def. movies and free online without any lagging!

xbox is a joke, all their system is defected! microcrap always makes things that crashes just like windows. they suck balls and love it!

66,000 in ONE day!

Congrats Sony job well done the rest of our PS2 brothers and sisters are startin to come over.

Anyone speak Romanian?

Er... does anyone else here speak Romanian?

I know for a fact that the

I know for a fact that the guy with the Xtoast 360 is Romanian ;)

Think before you speak

I'm not a big fan of both I just got my 360 elit and love playing fps games on it. I'll be getting a ps3 soon and more games should start coming out for it. This is what I think and will use my systems for and I'm not trying to say anyone is wrong or right...
xbox 360=FPS
PS3= RPG

あ?

フザケンな。
箱○最高wwww。Wii最高wwww。PS3?
馬鹿じゃないのwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

あ?Are you kidding me? etc...

Rough translation:

Eh?
Are you kidding me?

The best console lol. Wii is the best lol. PS3?
No way lolololol

The Wii? The best? BWAHAHAH,

The Wii? The best? BWAHAHAH, you are funny dude, thats the first time i laugh out loud on the internet for real! LOL! hahaha too bad!

OMG, the Wii! wahahahaha thats cool! sry, but the wii is crap, bad graphics, f**** games, and everything on here. Wii has the quality of the PS1 i think!

But i have to mention that. Wii, the best! Serious? buhahahah!!

sorry to all

sorry to all microsoft-fanboys out there, but the 360 is a big fat load of fucking sh*t. Why spending money for a piece of **** like this? Duh its alled "X Box", wich means u never now how long it takes to brake.
Xbox360 ist actually the same crap as the old was, or whats new on this sh*t? just dont spend your money for this, it sucks.
PS3 will rise till 2008 i think

I can't even sell my xbox360

I can't even sell my xbox360 because it shows the red ring of death... what a great investment. It used to be a really good heater in my room but now it's just a really ugly paperweight.

Honestly xbox has its pros, but when it comes to video games, SONY and Nintendo knows what gamers want. I can play fps games without paying on my PC!

I own a PS3 and im grateful

I own a PS3 and im grateful for it!
the graphics kick ass, the design too, assassins creed rocks,
all other games too, and i spend 230 bucks for the 60 gb ps3 on ebay.

To all that own xbox360, sell it and get a ps3, forget your fanboyism, microsoft
screwed you.

sry for bad english, iam japanese -.-

you're right ^_^ I'll join

you're right ^_^
I'll join the PS3 side next year (or 2009) after the big titles drop :D
MGS4, FFXIII, FFvsXIII, DMC4, Tekken 6, Resident Evil 5, GT5 are on my top ten wishlist ^_^

CONSOLE ADDICT

yous dont know what your talking about i own an xbox xbox360 and a PS2 PS3 thinking see im a paraplegic im clearly the best person to sort out this stupid fight your all having i love evry single console ive got but between the PS2 n 360 ive gotta say the 360 has better games and the graphics wins hands down its a pity sony never took the time to polish up the graphics before putting a rediculose price on it sorry guys but thats the truth of it and to have that much GBs is just crazy i have hundreds of games and its hardly put a dint in my old xbox its just silly havin all that space yull never need but your payin for it aint ya

CONSOLE ADDICT

its called teething problems guys im sure it will be sorted out

Xbox has ps1 graphics imo.

Xbox has ps1 graphics imo. And better games? No comment needed.

PS3 sells for 50,000 in day 1, seriously?

Wow, it seems like a good chunk of japanese people are waiting for huge price reduction. I've gotten myself a free PS3 - the 60gb one. I think the 60GB ones are the best one with all the backward compatibility and stuff. The most expensive PS3 ever. =)

ps3

ps3 is the greatest.blue-ray allps2 games uncharted home beta way better than 360

i have no prob with MS i

i have no prob with MS i just dont like the 360
and im a american. Sony just has the better console

i have both consoles ps3 n

i have both consoles ps3 n xbox360 ,,,,,,,,
sorry 2 say this but f**k wii... haha..

360

i think 360 r better cuz they dont cost $500 i think its better for people who actually have a life. LOSERS

ppl who pay more are losers,

ppl who pay more are losers, hmmm

PS3 Looks Nice

I personally don't really have a bias when it comes to the consoles, I think that Xbox 360 has more games just like PS2 had more than the Xbox. As far as system specs it seems as if the PS3 is superior. I personally have the Xbox 360 but I got the three rings of death error today so I am looking into other consoles (though I am still leaning towards xbox).

Xbox 360 is reliable

i got my 360 almost as soon as it came out and i have not had to change mine once so everyone that says it isnt reliable should get one before they say you have to change it regularly

LOL

wtf is all this commotion about the xbox360? ok, it does have some good exclusive games but... microsoft are now BRIBING games companies for exclusive games cos theyre retarded, unreliable and dumb also the only place buying the 360 is america... isnt that enuf proof that evri1 who owns an xbox360 is a freak, has their head up their arse, fat lazy fookers that have no life??? cmon ppls... get a brain for god sake... Sony has had WAAAAY more experience in gaming than the fukin disabled people that work at microsoft. ive owned both and can say without a doubt PS3>360!!! also UK>USA

My xbox 360 surprisingly

My xbox 360 surprisingly lasted me for 1 and a half years before gettin RROD. Screw it im going to get the 120GB Slim PS3 soon. XBOX LIVE IS A RIP OFF. THE BATTERIES IN 360 WIRELESS CONTROLLERS LAST ONLY 4 HOURS. ALL THE GOOD GAMES ARE ON PS3. THE PS3 EXCLUSIVES COMING SOON ARE AWESOME. 7 PEOPLE CAN PLAY ON 1 CONSOLE. PS3 HAS IN BUILT WIRELESS SO NO STUPID WIRELESS NETWORK ADAPTER. ANY HARDDRIVE THAT IS 2.5 INCH CAN BE USED IN PS3 NOT JUST STUPID MICROSOFT ONES. PLUS THEY ARE NOW THE SAME PRICE AT 300USD!!!!! ONLY A R TARD WUD BUY A 360 AT THE SAME PRICE.
