Old PS2 consoles sell better than PS3 in Japan

Posted on Monday, February 05 2007 @ 04:05:11 CET by

Last week the PlayStation 2 console sold better than it's newer PlayStation 3 brother, but the Wii still sells a lot better than the other next-gen consoles in Japan:
The venerable last-gen console outsold its heir by nearly one thousand units in Japan for the week of January 22-28, racking up 20,955 purchases versus the Playstation 3's 19,996 - according to digital entertainment analyst Media Create.

Several factors came together to make the Playstation 2 more appealing to players, such as its lower price tag, its wider selection of games, and its higher availability. Sales of the Nintendo Wii continue to remain strong, topping 83,000 units during the same period. Despite all of this, several analysts continue to predict the long-term success of the Playstation 3, citing its superior technology. Market research firm Research and Markets even went so far as to predict an install base of 75 million worldwide for the Playstation 3 by 2010, though they do not expect it to meet the success enjoyed by its forebear due to Blu-ray and PAL issues it faced upon launch and the earlier release of Microsoft's Xbox360.
