Not really surprised at Socoms small opening, after seeing reviews for it and since these are EMEAA sales, I’m even less so. Maybe it’ll do better in America, looking at the preorder data although probably not by huge amount, since the backlash from longtime fans of series really seems apparent. This could be a long crawl to 1million sales, which would be very disappointing for a numbered entry of Socom. I hope now fans of the original will be more inclined to pick up confrontation, since it’s been patched, it’s the closest thing to the classic tactical game play of the great originals. 

On the 3DS I would say it’s a combination of lack of software and the high launch price that are causing its sales to be staggered and even then, I’m surprised to see it in last place after witnessing the massive success the original DS has been right from this site.   

Most fans that talk about SOCOM are actuallyt having fun with it (mainly the multiplayer), so I'm not sure who you're speaking of.

Well I can't speak for everyone, about Socom 4 its just that a lot of the people who have played the older games in the series, don't care for the new style of the game, the evidence can be seen on the official Socom forums, from what I've gathered at least.

Which then might explain if the sales do turnout to be disappointing in America and the review average on metacritic.com could also support that reasoning.  



why is everyone surpised? The mass consumer thinks the 3DS is just a DS with 3D. Nintendo blew this, they could of made a design that would of been like the PSPGo.

Yep, how should they know any different? It looks almost exactly like a DS, it has a DS in its name and Nintendo has released countless revisions of the DS already.

Even by that metric, the 3DS isn't really doing good compared to DS revisions.

In the five weeks after the DSi launch, the DS did 1488k (same time of the year, April).  Now of course that includes the DS lite sales.  The DS did 756k in the five weeks after the DS lite launch, that was in June/July.

In the five weeks after the 3DS launch it has done 674k.  Keep in mind VGC also has their numbers higher than Nintendo's numbers for Euro sales.  Now the kicker is, even combined with the DS it is only around 995k.  It is also down YoY when combining the DS and 3DS.  The DS/3DS is also selling less weekly than the DS was five weeks after the DS lite launch.

10 Minutes ago, you could still see the old numbers on the front page:

EMEAA totals (old numbers before the adjustment)

Wii - 33.6
360 - 20.3
PS3 - 23.5
NDS - 59.0
PSP - 28.0

EMEAA totals (new numbers including the EMEAA sales of this thread; Weekly chart numbers in brackets):

Wii - 33.2 (33,205,222)
360 - 20.5 (20,482,497)
PS3 - 23.8 (23,828,895)
NDS - 58.8 (58,760,463)
PSP - 28.4 (28,425,902)

Adjustments (very roughly):

Wii -  ~500k DOWN
360 -  ~100k UP
PS3 -  ~200k UP
NDS -  ~300k DOWN
PSP -  ~400k UP

I love these numbers.

PS3 is unbeatable in ADJUSTMENTS.

Thanks.



Yey adjustments! :D

Can't wait to see what adjustments we get in Americas too

 

Anyway, go PS3. Those are fantastic numbers! PSP has been selling quite well too!
