From gamasutra.com:


The PlayStation 3 also saw sales fall from 16,889 units to 14,520. This represents the worst ever week for the console since launch, with a year-to-date total of just 368,343 units and a lifetime total in Japan of 825,901 consoles.

The Wii was up slightly in second place, from 51,365 units sold to 52,583 this week.

Now this makes sence, in the SF bay area (i know not japan but just an example) i have been staring at multiple ps3's sitting on the shelves, there is no hype no one cares and all people talk about is the wii and the 360. Maybe this will change when some exclusive games come out for the ps3, in like a year.(it feels like a year anyway)

I think the problem is definitely due to software shortages and once some exclusive titles hit, you'll see this go up. However, the price point is still a big issue. Here (UK), the console is selling at 425GBP which is a lot of money to play a couple of exclusive titles.

yeh, especially when you are buying little more than a X360 with some fancy bits attached. lets see... the X360 is selling at around 280 and the PS3 at 425. that is near enough twice as much that you are buying a PS3 (with some decent titles i must say, i would only want one for Final Fantasy and maybe KH3, but i suspect KH3 will go on Wii and X360) i hear the processing unit in the PS3 is working at around 60% and in the X360 it is working at 90% making the X360 more powerful, the X360 also has double the RAM (512mb) although this is shared for graphics too

no wars needed, but i think that there are obvious reasons why the PS3 is failing... too bad, i wanted one if they werent so goddam expensive, but hey, i got a X360 and lots of kick ass games are coming out this year for it
