Its this kind of thing that makes me wonder why this site even bothers with the Japanese preview, they predicted over 700,000 for XIII-2 and it did 520,000.

Why dont they just have the sense to wait for the media create numbers then embarrass themselves with such inaccuracy?


I agree.

 

They gave a 300-600 000 range for Vita and a 500 000 possibility for 3DS. It it just a guessing game.

Yeah. How dare they talk about video game sales on a video game sales forum/site.

If theyre going to it then it should be done properly instead of so poorly. If FFXIII-2 had 350,000 something preorders, then why would it do over 700,000 FW. I said 600,000 so i was even more accurate than this site and im just a typical user who comes by every now and then.

I'm dissapointed with FF13-2's sales, PS3 also didn't get much of a boost

Vita opened reasonably, but software sales aren't great for it


Well with Vita I think that we will see more and more sales coming from DD versions so saying software doing badly by simply looking at retail sales could be misleading.

Because it's a preview. It's samples from one store to give a guide on how early numbers will roughly pan out.

Its pointless, not only is it very inaccurate you have the proper numbers just a couple days later. I could be more accurate than the numbers in that preview.

Actually it gains a lot of a attraction, gees you're a negative guy arnt you? Hurry up and get yourself banned again

So its basically an attention article? may work but its this kind of thing why this site has such a bad reputation. Even if i got banned i can always come back.

No? A lot of people enjoy reading it and far be it from me to defend source but he does well number wise on the data he gets. You can't come back when you're permabanned

But not well enough, if there were no media create numbers then its fine, but when you have a preview then a couple of days later you have something offical and makes the preview look like the work of an amateur its pointless.

Course i could come back, id just sign up again.

Well it's comparable to X-2 which did over 1.5 million in its first week....Those are damn horrible numbers no matter how anyone tries to spin it. Really Tales of Xillia opening higher than numbered Final Fantasy?

Well,I don't think anyone tries to spin it.That's a terrible first week,no questions asked.Goes to show just how much things have changed in Japan over the past few years.

Sure, some things have changed in Japan, but I think it's more that people learnt buying a game just on it's name alone is a stupid idea.



updated: 14.01.2012

playing right now: Xenoblade Chronicles

Hype-o-meter, from least to most hyped:  the Last Story, Twisted Metal, Mass Effect 3, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Playstation ViTA

bet with Mordred11 that Rage will look better on Xbox 360.

We dont really know what software sales are and never will, with Memory cards being Mandatory and all software being available on PSN and for a lower RRP, and not all software being available in shops. 

We just dont have anything like a complete picuture of software sales, and i expect it will only get worse as more people start to buy from PSN.

It's not pointless if it gains a fair amount of interest from number nuts here that want early indications.

And no, you can't sign up again once you're ip banned.

But they want accurate numbers not made up ones.

This site doesnt have IP banning.



WOW 3DS beat Vita on launch day! thats awesome! i wonder how much Vita will be at next week... humm I'm guessing below 300K

ha told you guys FF would not do that well for PS3 as it is a sequel. seems it works sometimes and sometimes it just doesn't



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


So administrators here are now going to ban people who doubt the utility of some numbers?
