Well at least the PS4 games are selling out of their shipments (that's what those 80-100% after the Famitsu numbers mean, right?), so I guess Sony was pretty much expecting numbers like this in Japan, I guess.

Yes, it's obviously time for the Vita to shine! Wow. That much of a boost off a 46k selling game?

Well that welcome box also released in Japan at the same time, which I'm sure helped to give a boost as well.

http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/01/08/sony-pushes-ps-vita-in-japan-with-new-welcome-box/

The box includes a black PCH-2000 PS Vita, an 8 GB memory card, a travel pouch, a cloth, a strap, an AC Adapter, a power cord and an USB Cable. In addition to the hardware it’ll also come with quite a lot of demo software pre-installed.

  • God Eater 2 trial version
  • Soul Sacrifice Delta trial version
  • Terraria trial version
  • Joysound.TV Plus (free to play)
  • Dragon’s Dogma Quest (free to play)
  • Power Pro Stadium (free-to-play)
  • Music Unlimited

The package will cost 20,454 yen ($195), which is a rather good deal since the Vita by itself normally costs 18,995 yen. It will be released in limited quantities on March 6th.

the way of boosting vita level is outstanding. it almost reach 3ds level :v :))



I still don't find those Vita sales impressive at all, for the "handheld land" those are pretty low numbers compared to what the DS, PSP and 3DS last year were able to pull off. Higher that what the Vita used to sell? sure, but that still doesn't make those sales great.

PS4 is very low, although I prefer to wait 1 or 2 more months to see how things go.

Wii U catastrophic

3DS "meh"

Software sales pretty bad across the board.

I think that's it.

It's interesting to see those numbers grouped:

84k Sony combined
42k Nintendo combined

47k PS3 & PS4
7.7k Wii U

Yes, that is much worth notice. I remember people saying that "Nintendo owns Japan", but that's over (provided it's ever been a reality).

Iwata will have a hard time justifying his charts from now.

So it wasn't supply last week that limited to to 60k, dropping to 35k this week kinda proves that really. I wonder what the floor level will be?

Have we got a first 3 week comparison for other launches in Japan?

Vita gets a nice little boost for a week. Decent.

The rest meh.


Yup.

Which raises the question: The PS4 is a MAJOR flop in Japan - we need to talk about it; yes or no?



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

This isnt the 7th generation anymore, theyve well and truly moved on to smartphones which is why we will continue to see a decline in Japanese games that arent on mobile platforms. SQEX dont push out all their smartphone games for no reason.
