"She knew that my memories of her would fade. Which is precisely why she begged me never to forget her, to remember that she had existed. The thought fills me with an almost unbearable sorrow. Because Naoko never loved me."

Hang on let me get some tissue paper

Finally, apparently the Japanese trackers take a week off for New Years.  Looks like VGC needs to flip the PSP and PS3 numbers.



-Nintendo first party continues to dominate in Japan as usual compared to third parties.
-Animal Crossing at #1 again?!
-Looks like no one cares about any of the other Wii-U games except for Mario/NintendoLand/MH
-PSVita 15k+ still ?How is it doing that? Did something happen?
-No PS2 /sadface ;(



Ps3 even higher than expected. Nice

What is this I see? Fantasy Life didn't bomb? What kind of sorcery is this? /sarcasm

Wii U dropping is no surprise. It's doing ok. I would only be worried if it started doing Vita numbers or started getting around to that point (less than 40k). I expect a Nintendo Direct this month that shows all the titles releasing in Q1 otherwise the Q1 would just be 2 titles that are ports.

Also, 24 games in Top 30 are Nintendo.

Wii U is doing okay I guess.

Wii U dropping is no surprise. It's doing ok. I would only be worried if it started doing Vita numbers or started getting around to that point (less than 50k). I expect a Nintendo Direct this month that shows all the titles releasing in Q1 otherwise the Q1 would just be 2 titles that are ports.

Japan is...




I think it's pretty apparent that Wii U's worst enemy is the 3DS lol The Wii U is doing okay, next week we should have a temporary increase as we go in to New Year's sales. However, Nintendo will need to release a Nintendo Direct soon to show what upcoming games are coming to Japan, NA and EUR as we don't know when any of the games announced and unannounced games are releasing!

The PS3 holding surprisingly steady, even with the Wii U out.
