How did OOT flop??? Its a port of a old game, what were people expecting it to sell?? Half a mil and we dont even have the full US sales yet

It didn't push the 3DS above 100k units worldwide, that's how it flopped. Seriously, getting above 100k shouldn't be too much to ask for.


Can we at least see how the system sold in America b4 we call doom? IMHO, i wasnt expecting this game to push the 3DS that much, maybe im crazy but i wouldnt buy a system for 250 just to play a game that i already own, especially when that gmae is full price.

Well it's the reason I will might buy a 3DS. But certainly not at full price (for 3DS or the game), and I don't own / haven't played the original. So I'm probably in a relatively small group of potential buyers.

inFamous 2 2nd week drop is OK but I was hoping for a more rapid move up to 1 million than what this drop indicates.

Duke Nukem is doing better than the reviews would suggest it should. But it's still going to end up doing relatively poorly because it's just not that great of a game. Reviews may be lower than they should be because of the game's history and pedigree but they aren't too far off. I think it's heading towards being the poorest performing FPS of the generation. It might sell more than some FPSs in an absolute sense, but for the good will the original brings to DNF this game is going to be like PS3 sales performance relative to PS2.

Why are people buying Duke Nukem Forever and not inFAMOUS 2?!

Actually I am quite certain that 99% (if not 100%) of the people who said it were quite in the know that this didn't include US numbers and were joking...



Currently Playing: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Anticipating: Xenoblade, The Last Story, Mario Kart 7, Rayman Origins, Zelda SS, Crush3D, Tales of the Abyss 3DS, MGS:Snake Eater 3DS, RE:Revelations, Time Travellers, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Luigi's Mansion 2, MH TriG, DQ Monsters, Heroes of Ruin

Ocarina of Time 3D really makes the original look inferior by alot... I've tried playing the original one just yesterday and my god I didn't realize that the frame rate of the game was drastically improved over the original that I found it hard to play the original one again. However, I still plan on finishing it on the virtual console for the sake of it... But my god the frame rate of the original wasn't very good at all.



That's all OoT 3DS sold?
  Was there even another reason to buy a 3DS aside from that game? Because I don't see it, no offence.

It sold to 1/7 of the userbase in a few days, I wouldn't call that a poor performance. First million seller for sure at this point.



CURRENTLY PLAYING: Xenoblade (Wii), Super mario 3D land (3DS), Guild Wars (PC)

Should've done more, really.

It being a million seller is not something that I doubt though.



I must say I'm surprised the PS3 has been able to remain on top of the 360 after PSN being down for weeks

Lets get this right. The numbers for Zelda for the Americas are not in these charts. It will be in the next weeks charts. Zelda came out June 19th. Charts are from June 11th till June 18th. Maybe some of you should check the dates before responded and saying that it bombed in the Americas.


My thoughts exacly Carmen.



Buying in 2015: Captain toad: treasure tracker,

mario maker

new 3ds

yoshi woolly world

zelda U

majora's mask 3d

I'm still disappointed in 3DS sales numbers in EMEAA and Japan at this point, I would of thought with the greatest game ever (well, according to Metacritic), releasing on the device, it would of put its sales up a bit more than it has, and the OoT numbers themselves are disappointing too, but that'll probably have legs

I'm curious as to what the American 3DS numbers will be for next week though, should see a big boost

Infamous 2 is doing ok, but I thought it might of sold better second week, but I can't believe DN:F is doing so well, its terrible ¬.¬
