Everything keeps on getting worse...

I wonder if the 3DS can hold on to top spot WW until August, but I doubt it. Then we'll be seeing weeks of 400+k in August, a rarity for that time of year!

Now I ask the question- when/if will we see Vita below 5k JP/55k WW? Will it happen? I thought a new colour was released this week, but it didn't do anything...

That's June. White Vita, P4G, some Gundam game and MG HD Collection are released, it should be a good month.

Who knows, it might sell over 20k one week!

Seriously, I expect P3 week to boost by 10-15k, and White Week to boost it by 5-8k. Neither are big enough...



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

People are overestimating Persona 4s popularity.


Well what else is there really for that market at this time. Right now that seems to be the strongest title til Final Fantasy X remake. (I might have forgotten a title here and there).

The white Vita will have a permanent boost. 

The Hatsune Miku Vita will have a big temporary boost.

If Nintendo does not give Americans more than some mediocre Tennis game it will fall even more, and we will see the 3DS and Vita fighting for the 3rd spot in America soon. Where the hell are all the games for Americans! For Europe!


What do you want them to do? They slashed the price, they released two of their most strong titles already, already announce it's biggest title which is coming this year, and will release some others as Luigi's Mansion. I mean, the situation is indeed worrying, but, they took a hit just to increase the market penetration, and are releasing games. They also have the launch of WiiU soon, one can only wait for third parties to step up, or somebody to create a "Brain Training" effect.

I'm thinking Vita will go to the 40k zone now. This game is not a dream must buy game, but will have to act as one - no other game for the system has the minimum qualities to do that right now. You'll see, it'll have even some legs, bacause all new users will buy it.

That is not going to happen for a long time.

Poor sales all round, Vita sales are abysmel, 3DS continues to beat everything else put together.

I have a 3DS. Are you really going to tell me that Japan is no spoiled with games and that the West is? Are you really going to tell me that the 3DS is not doing anything great in the West right now? Idoubt it.

There is only one title that Nintendo has published and have not announced to bring it outside Japan, and that's Fire Emblem. The other games, are from third parties.



Last week numbers - Like noctis said, they come late

But it's good to see some quantities for games under the top-20 - like nintendogs, crossing 600k soon!
