A couple of counterpoints to these colored analyses of data from anonymous sources: - Although it's difficult to tell from Justyn Olby's poor writing style, all numbers quoted pertain to Singapore only. Don't go thinking that EA's PS2 sales account for only 2% of its business anywhere else. - If we are dealing with a nationwide number of 72,000 Xboxes catching up to a (currently) almost equal number of PS2s, we are dealing with a market of less than 200,000 combined sales at most, ignoring other consoles and a likely very high overlap in console ownership (Singapore is a rich state). These numbers foretell nothing for anyone outside of Singapore. - Piracy IS a problem in Singapore. My Singaporean ex-roommate hasn't been there since before the Xbox launch, but according to what I've been told, xRaph's example scenario is probably not too far off. - Warped, nowhere does it say, clearly, that game sales are good for the Xbox in Singapore. Olby cites one retailer's numbers, after noting that the store "does not stock PS2 games at the moment." He also quotes another all-too-enigmatic "source" that 120,000 games have been sold there. That's a sell-through of 1.67 games per system sold, when compared to the 60,000 locally-sold systems and the 12,000 imported systems. Hardly revolutionary, considering most people buy at least one game to play on any given console. But then again, see my point about piracy above.
