Close race between PS3 and Wii in Japan.

Amazon of Japan has a graph showing preorders of Wii and the PS3, which is updated once a week HERE

Man Nintendo is kicking so much butt. Considering how badly PS2 stomped GC this is one heck of a comeback.

What blows me away is that fact so many have the money to lay down for a PS3. In a since, is it really a good thing the Wii is so much cheaper but only stays ahead by so little? Shouldn't it have a huge leap instead for being lower in price? I just hope this doesn't give Nintendo the impression the Wii can sell for $250 and still own cause as far as I'm concerned if the PS3 was cheaper it probably pull ahead to un-beatible levels if this chart means anything.

What about this tidbit of info on MB's front page?:

Quote:
Japanese online shop Tsutaya has conducted a survey on which next generation console customers will likely to buy, 66% of the customers would like to pick up a PlayStation 3, and 34% would like to pick up a Wii.

Remember Japan are complete sony whores. And they're buying into the noobness of cheap blu-ray, just like they did with DVD/ps2. Plus they showed an advert for FF13 which means instant buy for the japanese. Overseas is where it should get interesting.

Surveys and pre-orders are just a good way to gloat before release, but ultimately they are very poor indications of future sales. Majority of buyers don't pre-order consoles (obviously) and surveys are mostly answered by hardcore gamer nerds anyway.

Did anyone take into consideration that technically that chart is showing the PS3 as significantly higher? You need to combine the value of both versions of the console to get the real numbers there. As you can see they've segregated the pre-order sales for Playstation into 20GB and 60GB.

That's what I said.

Have they divided the PS3 into two values, just to get people believe the Wii is on top?

All that isn't true, the real chart doesn't even have PS3 on it; the PS3 is not even comparable with Nintendo's Wii.
