It seems that the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops and the Xbox 360 Kinect has made little impact on Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii console sales this week, despite a huge increase in the number of people buying Microsoft’s movement based controller.
In fact the week before Kinect’s release the Nintendo Wii outsold the Xbox 360, this trend reversed when the Kinect launched. However even though they sold less units than the Xbox this week Nintendo managed to rack up sales equal to previous weeks. The PS3 enjoyed a similar trend by keeping sales of their console and new Playstation move device constant.
This constant trend set by Sony could receive a big boost this week as they release the hotly anticipated Gran Turismo 5. Sony has launched a bundled version of their console to entice gamers with their Flagship racing game.
Do you think Sony’s sales will increase this week?
Note: The Playstation 3 slim bundle is available for £274.99
