These are about the same numbers that have been put up by all 3 consoles all year, save for big spikes around events such as price cuts.

I find it intersting that the 360 only got a +17% jump over the week before, especially considering it's Halo release week. I thought this was the month 360 caught up to Wii? I guess not.

This is the week before Halo 3 came out.

So next week will be more interesting then on how big of an effect the game had. Still, I don't think it's going to be enough to counter Wii on a global scale. It might tip it a bit in NA and England, that's about it, so I'm betting Wii is still ahead next week.

That chart is for "Week Ending 22nd September 2007".

Since Halo 3 wasn't released until the 25th, then it fair to assume that the 17% jump was IN ANTICIPATION of it coming out. How monumental is that?!?!? Not only does Halo 3 sell systems once it comes out, but it even has a significant effect BEFORE IT COMES OUT.

So much for naysayers...

This has more to do with the Halo 3 juggernaut rather than other systems underperforming.

Most people that hadn't picked up a 360 were waiting for Halo 3 to come around before picking one up.

What will be more interesting is to see how the general public reacts to the 399 PS3 coming in November.

Sony didn't manage to sellout the U$499 60GB Ps3.

What this means?
- People are waiting the U$ 399 PS3?
- People that buys Ps3 are sony fans... so they sell alot when the price drops.. but after a month or so... Just take a look Ps3 doen't sell well even on Japan.
