    DS and Wii on top again too.


    What's surprising is that the GBA was made completely obsolete by the DS. Unless you want to use a link cable, which 84k of Americans in a month might want to do...

    Frankly my dear, I think being outsold by the 2001 obsolete GBA is, as you so eloquently put it, is "teh doomed". Half a year in too :(

    I'm sure that the only system to see an increase in sales when good games come out will be the PS3 too.

    edit: The DS outsold all Sony's products put together. Yowza.

    My friend was part of that 82k PS3 number, but he bought a 20 Gig return to his store, so does that count? :)

    PSP and PS2 usually outsell the 360.

    PS3 being outsold by the GBA is just sad though.

    GBA SPs are pretty popular with parents buying for younger children (4-7 age bracket) here also. Smaller investment if there's a chance it will end up broken / outgrown / etc and the kid is not so particular on which one they want. :)

    Yeah, I'm one of the PS3 buyers too. Couldn't be happier with mine. Of course, I'm really tempted to get a DS. I've always liked Nintendo's handheld systems (never had a Nintendo home console) and the DS is pretty cool.

    interesting that the 360 elite couldn't provide the real boost i was expecting


    even if we combine the japanese and american numbers the ps3 is still behind the 360 (the japanese numbers exclude the 30th and 29th since the numbers are counted weekly)

    Wii
    284 + 360 = 644k

    PS3
    57 + 82 = 139k

    360
    14 + 174 = 188k


    but it will be ahead of the gba obviously

    They should be all over the net by now, but GAF gets them pretty quick. Mammoth thread with many a hilarious GIF:

    ah, NeoGaf's legendary NDP threads.

    Come to think of it (and thanks to NG), with the GBA being a portable SNES I probably shouldn't expect anything less.
    In all seriousness, when are they burying the PS3?
