#1 Don't mind the quote, just want to have it for future references.

OT: Sony just used a Phoenix Down on Vita :)

#2 I'm the only one that thinks that WiiU drop was smaller than expected?

3DS pulling big numbers, let's see how this year turns out.

MC stills tracks the PS2.

#1 It's ok... I BELIEVE!!!

#2 I think so... this week is always huge for Japan... it's expected a boost in consoles sales and not drop.

#3 928 units even after the end of production... amazing... more than DS.

FULL MC TABLE

Dude you are the one predicting PS3 to sell more than Wii WW, I'm ignoring your predictions, I said "don't mind the quote", next time I'll just bookmark it. However, don't take me too seriously, you might actually get lucky and get that right. But your arguments are just too irrational.

I'm not the only one that thinks this weeks WiiU numbers ain't that bad. Check the Gaf thread, I know you do follow it.

What's amazing in those numbers? They are beyond irrelevant, they are below Xbox!  And even if we had to pay attention to those up to Dec 23,  DS had a significant lead of year sales against PS2 11k (MC), 3k (Famitsu), and I'm not even quoting the LT numbers of them. Finally, if they are not any more in production, if anything sales will go up from people that want to get one before they are no longer available.

I think if would have had a game released this wk, they could have sold 's.   There, made a template! :D now to try it..

I think if Atari would have had a Burgerking game released this wk, they could have sold 13563 Magnavox Odyssey's.
hey! it works! :D

i got one for you. if MS would have bundled windows 8 with Halo4 or cut the price windows 8 would have sold more then 60m licenses in 10 wks.

60 million Windows 8 Licenses Sold in 10 Weeks

They won't. Scratch Rayman and Lego Cities from your list since this is Japan and those IP's are not popular there.

Wonderful 101, will be small, along the lines of Little King's Story or the previous Platinum Games.

Pikmin 3, hardly a system seller considering past entries.

Game & Wario, the previous games in this series were popular, this one I'll give you, but not big enough to produce a boost that lasts more than 2 weeks.

Wii Fit U, may or may not be a system seller, and unknown to what degree. If we take al ook at the 3DS, not all the previous break out hits for the DS translated into 3DS hits, the most notable being Brain Training.

Wouldn't call that being alright and then less so, when we don't have confirmation of all those games hitting Japan before Q3.

I think Game & Wario, NSMBU, and Nintendo Land are all the types of games that will sell decently over a long period of time instead of doing massive numbers at release and then falling out of the Top 20 two weeks later.  Those three games will keep Wii U sales at a decent level through the Spring.

Lego City isn't a sure thing.  It's a new IP, and therefore and unknown quanitity.  We'll see it goes, but at least in the US it seems to be getting a lot of attention from the press and is putting up surprisingly decent pre-order numbers.

I think Wonderful 101 will sell better in Japan than anywhere else, as it's Platinum games and their products appeal to a Japanese audience first and foremost.  That game stands a chance at doing fairly well for a system with a low install base.  Again, a new IP, so like Lego City it is up to guessing at this point.  I'm just probably more optimistic.  I'm figuring in the fact that Nintendo has become the clear dominant leader in Japan right now and their brand image alone will probably do more to drive Wii U hardware/software than anything else. 

As you say, it is true, home consoles take a backseat to handhelds in Japan nowadays.  But Wii U will probably sell at least 10-11 million in Japan LTD, not a bad number.  Also have to factor in that while home consoles have a lower install base than handhelds, home consoles do tend to sell more software.



 

very good sales for playstation 3 and psp, 3ds.
bad.. wiiU.



the best RPG's are coming 2013 !!!! oh my god, this is perfect for RPG-GAMER = ) Ni No Kuni - 25 january, Time and Eternity, tales of xillia (PS3) and the maybe best game ever: metal gear solid ground zero

Since when?  The only Platinum game to sell more in Japan than any other territory was Infinite Space, and that was more because it barely sold anything in NA and EU.

Also 10-11 million is a pretty high minimum when the Wii is only at 12.6 million.

Wii U doing great!

3DS beasting.

Vita number seems off - maybe 50% off deals?

Seriously?



This is supernatural PS3 almost outsold WiiU!!!!

Nice PSVita boost too, let's hope it can keep the momentum with the 2013 games :)

People finally got enough money to buy a 32 gb memory card with their Vita purchase thanks to New Years which is why the Vita sales went up l0l

A few places also had some good New Years sales for the Vita in limited quantities. I saw one major chain electronics store had a 3G Vita (still a launch unit!), Hot Shots Golf 6, 4gb memory card and a screen protector for 20,000 yen. Sony did actually release a starter pack with a 3G vita, HSG6 and a 4gb memory card, but it retails for almost 30,000 yen, so that was a big sale.

Not as good, but they had another one as wel; buy a 3G vita, any vita game, and any size memory card and get 8,000 yen off.

i was considering one myself, but I bought a new psp just last month so my 3ds/360/psp combination are keeping me too busy as it is.
