Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan Sales - Media Create,Famitsu, & dengeki: week 34 ( Aug 19 - Aug 25)

I think W101 looks like a good game, but it had everything going against it. If it had released on all formats inc PC as a downloadable game at a $15 pricepoint I think it would have done well. But a quirky game like that trying to sell as a full £40/$50 release on a very small install base? I don't know what they were thinking.

I love games like this, but you have to be somewhat sensible when you choose your release formats and price.

And even Wii U is 40% down compared to last week...

To think that this GIF is from one of the most epic space opera anime's ever concieved, Legend of Galactic Heroes:D

I'm pretty sure that gif is from "Jem" a cartoon from the 80's?

It is according to Google Images.

It is. My mistakeXD



Also, why is W101 Wii U exclusive? Did Nintendo 'fund' Platinum to make it?

They should have put it on PS3, Vita and 3DS too.

30k shipment will not sell out.

5k first week would put this in first place for flop of the year.



im starting to think your enjoying W101 flop? I mean every thread that you mentioned W101 you followed it by flop O.o! Im not following you, i just noticed you did it alot (at least 20 times now). Did Wonder Red Do something to you think man?

I am actually follow it quite alot :P I am actually stunned  thats why I keeo harping on about it,kinda reminds me of when StarHawk bombed though this is a bit worse atm.

That and I need revenge for Ps all stars flopping ( ego boost) ^^



PSASBR was a flop but still a mil sales is good! (people just compared it to SSBB sales imo)


It was always going to flop compared to SSB, they should have just ripped it off completly instead of having the supers system.



Poor 101.



They can't be stopped...

The game is a Nintendo IP (in fact it's owned by Nintendo of America oddly enough), it was just outsourced by Platinum.

Some things are never to be spoken about again.
We'll add this one to the list.
Taboo list -
Time Travelers
Wonderful 101
Yakuza 1&2 HD
Mind Zero (yes, I red some predictions from some unfortunate people)

Put Wonderful101 on the top of that list, its the most expensive of the lot and sold less than all of them bar Yakuza.


The list is unordered. I put the games as I remembered them. I'll do it next time when another game enters the list :)

The game is funded by Nintendo (and they are the ones that will lose money on this). Those multiplat and PC could never happen. The game would never have happened without Nintendo.

With that said, i agree they should have priced it as a budget title.

The game wouldn't work on the 3DS.

The obvious solution for better sales would have been commercials for the game.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
