Go 360! Go SW: K!

This year is not looking good globally... hopefully the big hitters later in the year can do some redemption.


6000! I thought Star Wars was popular over there as well? Lets just hope for this companies sake that this game sells more than that in the West! :)

The Pre-orders looked alright, I wonder how many cancelled after all those nasty reviews?

Perhaps, but in the meantime theres gonna be a huge drop in demand worldwide and, unless im mistaken, there aren't that many big hitters from any companies until the end of the year AGAIN.

Thats 6 months of negative press, 6 months of bad sales, and 6 months of pro-Apple bullshit talking up the death of consoles again.



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

There are at least ten biggish 3DS games coming out before the end of summer alone! I cannot believe that the PS3 and 360 have no games coming out until after summer? Even the Wii is getting Pandora's tower in Europe, last story in America, and Dragon Quest in Japan.





 

Everyone except the PS2 and the 360 are down... the ones you would think wouldn't go up.

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Yeah :) i wanted to see this thread, I love discusing numbers xD
- The KHDDD sales % drop was massive! I was expecting better legs for the 2nd week :/, is really not selling on par with the others KH hanheld games.


Kingdom Hearts series (second week sales)

[PS2] Kingdom Hearts (Square) - 103,300 / 514,792 (-75%)*
[GBA] Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories - 35,768 / 239,039 (-82%)
[PS2] Kingdom Hearts II (Square Enix) - 156,837 / 884,428 (-78%)
[NDS] Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days (Square Enix) - 106,104 / 401,000 (-64%)
[PSP] Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (Square Enix) - 177,405 / 623,367 (-60%)
[NDS] Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (Square Enix) - 31,247 / 126,753 (-67%)

- I am still amazed seeing PSP games at  #1 :O, It really shows how Sony messed up by not having real backward compatibility for the PSV, they essentially have 2  completly different platforms competing with each other, minewhile the DS made a nice little transition to the 3DS. The worse part is that Sony cant kill the PSP now, Japan still loves that machine!
PSP software # sales: 307090
3DS software # sales: 147887

I dont know how they can handle this situation, a pricedrop seems unlikely because they cant afford that, and they dont have any games on the near future that will appeal to this specific market (and the next big conference for Japan, the TGS, is stil moooooonths away)

 

-Kid Icarus is holding up nicely, I hope that we can see it reaching  500,000.

-Lots of 3DS software, expecting to see Fire Emblem there at #1 next week :D



Oh! And finally this chart is really informative, it shows the rollercoaster that has been watching how these little hanhelds perform:

In America alone over the next three months, we already have confirmed quite a few good games coming out. Japan is going to be slammed with a ton of grade A titles over that time. Going to be a busy summer for the 3DS of mostly up months!

 

Nice chart!



 

I'll buy Batman Lego 2... but not now, in a year or so.
Batman 1 was one of the best Lego games, can't wait to play this - well, I can.
