hey have you seen npd yet for june?

Briefly. PS4 is severely undertracked, and WiiU/XB1 are undertracked as well right?

Meanhile 3DS, Vita and 360 are overtracked.

6 days ago

yep 3ds is 7k overtracked sadly :(

5 days ago

I don't know why Nintendo didn't go all out this year on the games. I really have little to look forward to other then Codename STEAM and Pokemon.

Going to revert back to PSP and DS gaming lol.

5 days ago

guess they released so many games in 2013 that they need some time for new ones XD but anyway i predict majoras mask 3d,steam,monster hunter 4, and a new pokemon for 2015 so far

5 days ago

That would be way too fast for a whole new Pokemon, this isn't an annual franchise. But I agree with you on Majora's Mask 3D, they did give away Majora's Mask CD's as a Platinum reward for Club Nintendo last year.

Still disappointed with 3DS and Vita overall. Compared to the DS and PSP 3 years into their life cycle, the number of games on the new handhelds isn't much. All I want at this point is Dragon Quest VII and a new Advance Wars for 3DS, and a PS2 remake for Vita which I have yet to play (Shadow Hearts maybe?)

P.S. I might be crazy for saying this, but I'm predicting a Zelda Pinball for 3DS in 2015. GB had Kirby Pinball, GBC had Pokemon, GBA had Mario and another Pokemon Pinball and DS had Metroid. The only major Nintendo series without a pinball game is Zelda (but I could see a 3rd Pokemon Pinball for 3DS).

I also predict a Final Fantasy XII Remaster for PSV/PS3, but maybe not until 2016.

hey good news zelda u already has 3k preorders :)

meh. That game is so far down......

I'm just happy WiiU has stabilized at 60k weekly (even with the MK8 bundle discontinued). If Nintendo plays their cards right, they could still end up 2nd this gen.

on 12 July 2014

well it still has over a year) so its doing good and actually europe still continuing the bundle

on 12 July 2014

There's already a Zelda bundle for WiiU??

The thing about VGC is the numbers are a complete estimate. I've seen VGC completely change the pre-orders for games by up to 400% with adjustments. Sometimes they add a game after they "estimate" that it's received 30,000-40,000 pre-orders.

Don't take the info from this website too strictly, always approach it with a grain of salt. As an example, last July VGC claimed PS3 topped 360 sales, and even made an article about it. With the most recent adjustments, PS3 only topped 360 last month.

on 13 July 2014

I wouldn't be surprised if Smash Bros WiiU had 50,000 pre-orders (VGC have it at 20,000 right now).

on 13 July 2014

actually i could see that to since it should have gotten over 10k preorders from e3 hype and smash fest :P

on 14 July 2014

and thx for the tip :)

Hey man, I know you're a big Mario Party 2 fan. The game is one of the prizes on Club Nintendo until the 6th. Do you think it's worth picking up? I might only be able to play with two people.

Mario Party 2 is by far the best Mario Party, definitely worth picking up IMO. I have it both for N64 and Wii.

Mario Party 9 isn't bad either, but 2 is definitely the best. MP1 has too many mini-games which grind down the analog stick and 3-8 are all pretty bad.

I still play MP2 with friends. I say buy it.

on 04 July 2014

I decided to get it :)

Thanks for your advice. I'll let you know how I like it.

on 06 July 2014

Please do. My advice is to play Space Land with your friends. It's my favorite map.

hey which one do you think eill help wii u more

xenoblade x or fire emblem x shin megami(whatever its called)

XenoBlade for sure. SMT x. Fire Emblem is a crossover and crossovers rarely do anything noticeable.

Might not even get SMT x. Fire Emblem because I hate SMT

on 26 June 2014

now which one could be more helpful in japam?

on 27 June 2014

XenoBlade lol

on 27 June 2014

hmm i was thinking since the other 2 do better in japan but that could happen lol

on 27 June 2014

It could, but console Fire Emblems never did that well in Japan either (0.16/0.17 million, same as XenoBlade)

SMT did well during the PS2 era, but that 23 million PS2 install base in Japan gave an unfair advantage (Wii only had 9 million units).

Plus now that the game is being planned to be released outside of Japan, I could see this game having a larger budget/more advertising.

COMG! Japan Pre-order Chart Thread - Daily updates!

in Sales Discussion 8 hours ago

OfficerRaichu15 said: its about time  :) For a tier 2 WiiU game to appear 3 weeks before release on COMG is a huge deal. Mario Kart 8 didn't shop up until the very end did it not? Things are changing on the WiiU front....

Uncharted 4 vs Halo 5 vs Zelda U: Which will sell the most and be the highest rated?

in Gaming Discussion 5 days ago

Sales: Halo > Uncharted > ZeldaScores: Zelda = Uncharted >> Halo I think Halo 5 will get an 85-90 metascore, where Uncharted and Zelda will likely be above 95.....again. In terms of sales Halo 5 is pretty much guarenteed 8 million, Uncharted is likely 6 million, and Zelda is at least 4 million (but will vary depending on reception)....

Why I don't think the PS4 will pass 100m

in Gaming Discussion 5 days ago

PS3 sales for the first 3 years were nowhere near 150k per week. The fact that PS4's year 1 sales are matching PS3's stronger years is indication that PS4 > PS3. By how much? Who know? If XB1 completely flops, or the PS4 continues to grow at the rate it's growing then yes it will pass 100 million....
