The PS3 has great software sales in comparison though.


Yakuza 5 certainly gave the PS3 some shoulder room in the software charts.

So?

I think the point he's trying to make is, if you took that graph last week, or next week, or almost any other week, the PS3 would have a far lower marketshare. 

But I see your point. Fact is, games release and big ones will skew the figures. I do think you're cherry-picking slightly to dethrone the WiiU's launch as it were, but there you go. If it can stay above 25% next week then all power to it.

Then again people are saying "complete NIntendo domination" in here when the Wii U launch certainly played a big part...lol

Nintendo always dominates - it's just by how much that we get to discuss. :D

Nintendo is the TRUE winner of the consoles (Wii), the handhelds (3DS), and the next consoles (Wii U).


The graphics is comparing SOFTWARE sales. not Hardware.. please kids.. go back to school..

I don'tknow if they were just replenished. The only place i have visited twice is one of the independents. Sofmap had many bundles in stock at 8pm on launch day.

Amazon and rakuten also have them in stock.

Amazon has no stock available unless you count third parties selling the systems for 4,500 yen to 6,000 yen above retail price.

I just checked yodobashi's online store and they are sold out of both models. Bic camera's site doesn't show either model which likely means they have no stock. Yamada Denki's website also is sold out of both models. 

I wonder why there are so many available in your area. Somebody on gaf said that some places told him more stock would come on the 15th. I'll check again later, but I'm still expecting no stock when I check.

Amazon has never had stock of the Wii U.  Has something to do with a dispute between Amazon and Nintendo.  At least that's what I've heard the reason is.

@OP

Pretty good launch numbers for the Wii U.  Now, we just have to wait and and see if they will hold.  Also, seems kinda strange that the 360 isn't getting any boost at all from the holidays.  Last year, the 360 was at ~3K for the corresponding week, which was up ~1.4K from the previous week.  This year it's actually down by 100 units from last week.  The 360 was always a niche product in Japan, but it seems like even the samll support it got is dying away.

That's only in the US as far as I know. Amazon Japan sells all Nintendo hardware; DS, Wii, 3ds and the Wii U.

OMG the Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney drop! I'm devastated, this game is so fabulous... Another victim of the nintendo monopoly on 3DS. But it's not that bad because it means that the franchises will come to Vita in the future.

The WiiU launch is interesting, because nearly all the games bombed. Only the awaited big sellers achieved decent numbers : WiiU is in for a big drop next week. The TecmoKoei games were very weak in particular despite the numerous bonuses of the WiiU versions : I hope it will teach those publishers not to betray their existing PS3 fanbase.

Bayonetta 2 all over again? :)

No, totally different! Ninja Gaiden 3 and Orochi Warriors 3 were originally PS3/360 games, but TecmoKoei is totally ignoring and mocking the existing PS3/360 fanbase by cramming all this extra content in WiiU versions nobody's buying. They won't get away with this!

If you don't mind me asking, how is the overall word on the street concering Wii U over there? Is it still positive or are people already complaining about the weak CPU and the slow RAM? Also, how is the buzz compared to the PSV launch? Does it feel any different?



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

Lol Amazon japan would be in a world of trouble if they were in a dispute with Nintendo.

Not sure if this was posted already, but there's a new Super Robot Taisen game that was announced for the 3DS (first time on 3DS), Super Robot Taisen UX releasing March 14th.

It is also releasing with a special 3DS LL custom bundle.

Indeed. Now explain to me how his comment makes sense since we know nothing about the PS4.

Indeed we don't know anything about the PS4 (or Next X) but you certainly see Sony and MS fans constantly saying how both will destroy the Wii U...without knowing anything about them.

vfguy said:

Are the Wii U numbers good if the system is not supply constrained? Will this result in a big drop for this week, as anyone who wanted a system could have bought one?

Nintendo had Foxconn start console production much earlier and at a higher rate than a usual launch so they've been able to replenish stocks very quickly compared to previous launches.   It doesn't mean demand is low, it just means supply is adequate.

Not in sales...or I would like to call them out as well.

They know nothing of next gen systems from Sony and MS, and still they know it'll be much more powerful, and thus sell more than Wii U. So it's about the same thing

Who's making that connection, you or them?



that custom 3DS is amazing, especially the back.
