Xbox 360 Passes 1 Million Milestone In Japan, PS3 At 3 Million
Posted by XanTium | March 31 11:25 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From gamasutra.com:


The Xbox 360 sold over 1 million units of hardware in Japan, according to new data released by Famitsu magazine publisher and research firm Enterbrain.

The figure is already far in advance of the less than 500,000 unit lifetime figure for the original Xbox in Japan.

In the same report, the PlayStation 3 lifetime total in Japan is reported to have just passed the 3 million mark.

That's a pretty good number for the 360 in Japan.

Does anyone know the current RRP of the PS3 and 360 in Japan?. I remember reading a while back that PS3 was heavily discounted in Japan compared to other countries. It would be interesting to know.

Both consoles are pretty much the same now. If you want to pay an extra 100$ for blu-ray support, go with the ps3.

I really want a PS3 now, the latest spate of games have given me a hunger for one, but I can't justify the purchase just yet, already have a bluray player and the PS3 is still outside my pricerange for a third console.
Have been enjoying HOD and MadWorld on the Wii though.

If this thread turns into a fanboy war, it will be closed, and posters will get proper infractions/warnings against their account if needed.

great news, well great for both consoles. It's nice to see competition everywhere, no matte who is doing better. It only means one thing...better games on both ends, so we win in the end..

its obvious the Japanese will support their own console over the American made. im more inclined to think that they feel more comfortable with developers and publishers that they are more familiar with that made games for PSone and PS2. Its a based on trust.

Yeah, he deleted my post even when I was trying to turn it away from a fanboy war. Hopefully it was just because I quoted another post that was in the war.

No you were not. I have read the post which is still there and invisible to everyone except staff. You were partaking, so stay on topic and forget removed posts. If you have an issue doing this or with any removed posts then PM the Head Mod who did it or me or one of the others who will clarify it for you.
On topic please from now
