    I guess if the other two consoles were delayed for around 5 months, they would have sold more at launch. I'd be lying if I said I was surprised by this.

    Congratulations to Sony in any case. Let's hope this helps their overall sales and popularity.

    That is some very good news for Sony. However, the important thing is what will become of the 2/3 of units in stock.

    Yeah those facts says it all,but i think the 360 could have done better if mircosoft had sucked the life out of the xbox. I think the 360 was released to quick.

    they were afraid of the PS3, so they rushed it to make sure it was out before the Wii and PS3. now they're very afraid of the Wii, not so much the PS3.

    ps3 is starting to catch up to 360 numbers for there 1st quater, which is good... 360 is staying pretty solid with just under a million a month now worldwide... and the wii is just flying past them all even with shortages... kinda wierd how the gaming world can flip upside down in a short time... i hope they all do well this time around just means better prices,better games,better systems in the end

    Why do you guys all boast about the Wii's sales numbers? I don't understand.

    I wonder how many of those sales actually went straight onto ebay...
    I remember reading something about more consoles being sold in Japan than games for them on launch, for the PS3.

    No, actually it's good for the consumer. Everyone got one that wanted one. It isn't good for Sony considering they had to spend more on the manufacture of the PS3 than what they got out of it, and they haven't even sold all of the stock yet. It shows that there isn't as much demand for the PS3 yet as the Wii, which is not good in the short term sales figures. However, that doesn't disclude the future sales. Although my predictions are that the Wii will sell well because of all those non-gamers also buying it.

    If only Nintendo were prepared with enough Wiis that title might be its *shakes fists* lol. Thats one thing Sony are good at - supplying their customers.
