Default Sales for PS3 40g model 1st week sales? Any guesses?

I bet SONY will sell between 300,000 to 450,000. Thats a heck of a lot more than the so called 90,000 HD-DVD players that Toshiba discounted to compete with the PS3 40g.

What do you guys think the sales of the PS3 40g will be?

I find that hard to believe especially when the XBOX360 sold about 525,000 units in North America during the month of Halo 3, which was slightly above the Wii at 500,000 units.

Hopefully for the month, the PS3 will hit around 300,000

they usualy sell around 85k-100k per month don't they. I would guess first week at $399 sales would be closer to 50K-75k tops

This might not mean much but I routinely look on Amazon.com (twice a day) and check the top 100 video game sellers and the 80 gig version has consistantly been several notches above the 40 gig version this past week. I think the 80 gig might sell more than the 40.

That would be great with the $100 discount on the 80g and the new 40g released last week the sales are sure to be more than the PS3s average 100,000 plus a month

If Sony does well, hopefully they'll sell about 1.5 PS3s in November/December.

Of course we know the PS3 installed base does not move the same ratio of discs as standalones.

I suspect by year end the PS3 sales will counteract cheap HD DVD players, and we'll be left with about the same sales ratio as we see now.

If we see significant deals on Blu Ray standalones perhaps we'll gain some ground.

I picked up the new ps3 40 gig last friday. I have to say, looking at BB for example over the weekend, they had half a pallet of the 80 gig ps3 on the floor and stacks and stacks of x-box 360's in about 3 locations in the store. Alot of the Halo 3 versions!

IT doesn't matter as you can see in the amazon rankings hd dvd really isn't making an impact having those extra 90k players especially since those dumbasses that already had an hd dvd player probably went and picked them all up before a new person did.

It's hard to believe MS actually sold 525,000 defective units during that month.

The average ranking for their top 100 titles has moved up a fair amount on Amazon (from looking at www.eproductwars.com/dvd ). Can't say for sure that it is these new players, but definitely could be. I would expect the biggest impact from a lot of new players to be in the titles that have been out a while (mostly lower ranked stuff) that most current owners either already got, or passed on. The ranking for Planet Earth has also been doing pretty well and that title has done better on HD DVD the past couple of weeks by the Nielsen numbers that have been published. These are some of the reasons I'm hoping Blu-ray standalone players come down soon.

well its a 20% price cut.....

Normally they sell 100k odd a month right. I would say the increase might be 50%, so take it took 150k amonth. So that is like 35k or thereabouts for the week.

I don't think it will sell well for two reasons 1)Sony said they are limiting production on the 40GB and, more importantly 2)for $100 more the 80GB is a supremely better value. 2x HDD Space, Backwards Compatability, SACD Support, and one of the best PS3 games all for the cost of discontinued dud player.

Either way, you get a great value. Heck, the XBOX 360 costs $280 for their basic version and $350 for their higher end version so essentially you are only paying $120-$150 for a Blu Ray Player.

Although, I do have to admit, I did by one of the $100 dud players (don't kill me )! I needed an cheap upconverting player for another TV in the house . I'm not letting this thing within 10 feet of my HD80.


*hugs 60GB PS3*

I'm with you. The PS3 will probably sell a bit better than last month, but I think the best we can hope for is 2x last month's volume (which I believe was a little above 120k?). That said, if the number is anywhere near 240k, I would consider that pretty good considering how few of the PS3's big titles have been released to date.

Thing is, all those PS3 wont be used for BD Movies,just a tiny number of them but the 99$ HD DVD player instead will be used for HD DVD movies, that is FACT!

HD DVD sold almost 90.000 player in one weekend! HOW can the BDA conter this?

I guess we'll see if BDA considers this a wake up call, or stay with their current course. As is stands BDA is pricing for an early adopter market, while Toshiba is desperately trying to push for mass market.

The PS3, if it sells in large volumes, may help counteract and keep the status quo.
