PS2 sales have picked up - but of the 4 titles in the top 10 (well, 4th at #12), 2 will vanish next week. Kingdom Hearts is a no brainer (re-release), and sales for Musou Orochi dropped 75%.
Still only 1 PSP in top 50, and 2 PS3 titles. Konami can't be happy with the performance of "Pro Baseball Spirits 4" - new console, title will only sell in Japan (super deformed?) that title has flunked. Maybe a baseball game for the Wii would do better ;)
I think the sales for "Mezase!! Fishing Master" are actually sort of reasonable at 19k. Unlikely to have had a huge shipment, development may be paid off by now already!
The main bright light for Sony is that PSP sales didn't really dip at all (even though sales of MH2 dropped about 25%). The dark light is that PS3 sales continue to drop... if it loses too much momentum, it may need a "re-release" when decent games finally hit.
Odd DS/Wii sales - hardware shortages, or drop in damage? Stockpiling for Golden Week?
These are great comments. And I add some comments based on the current situation in Japan.
For most of developers, the sales of game for PS3 isn't well at all because of the expensive developing cost. So, Konami would think multi-platform as same as Capcom. For example, MGS4... (In addition, it is seemed that the developer can't pay the cost by the sales only in Japan)
PSP is seemed to recover in Japan, but this is the phenomenon only for MHF2. Other games are not recovered. So, to tell PSP is truely recovered, we should wait the sales of next games like FFT.
At last, Wii and DSL, Mezase!! Fishing Master was sold more than
anticipated. From Shinobi, At some shops, it became sold-out. Probably, this shows the market of Wii is quite a different from present consoles. From the sight of gamer, Mezase!! Fishing Master may be the colorless game, but from the other sight, it may not be so.
Probably, the decreasement of sales of Wii and DSL is due to the shop. In April, Paper Mario for Wii and Phoenix Wright 4 for DS is released. Both are very popular in Japan. So, the many people want to buy and some people buy them with console. So, shop might stock Wii and DS for the release of them.
