Do we think Vita might have a stronger than expected digital ratio for DQH2? Given its sell-through in the 80-100% range, it could have very well been supply constrained. Looking forward to those numbers later on! Still did great given that it didn't receive a port of the first entry.

Poor Nis. I think they've been hoping these smaller projects of theirs will somehow catch fire and sell gangbusters, but thus far, both Cladun and Rose and Twilight Castle haven't exactly done so.

Congrats to 5 million Vitas! Maybe we can finally get another revision? Lol

But 3 DS isn't a Handheld ?, Also Gameboy and Nintendo DS did not out-sold PS2 on Japan ?.

Handheld CONSOLE! However, I previously  said: surpassing ps2 and become third best selling gaming device in Japan, exactly for the reason, of some people not  considering 3ds  to be a console but handheld... lol As I said, hadheld is an attribute/epithet to characterize a general term... Console, computer, camera, tv... e.t.c

As for the second part, yes! Both with 11-12m more sales than it!

I'll be hosting a party for consoles that sell more than its predecessor.  Ps4 has just over 7m more to go and the 3DS about 10m. This party is liable to be cancelled but if either ever do it you're invited.  

 

Ps. Don't be comparing handhelds to consoles in Japan.  It's like comparing handhelds to mobile.  

 

Edit: well not really since they're actually both mobile devices where consoles are stationary only. 



Really interesting post from hiska-san.  so builders and heroes have the same opening but builders more popular on vita and heroes more popular on ps4. Both games have had good openings. 

 

"Fun thing:


[PSV] Dragon Quest Builders: Alefgard o Fukkatsu Niseyo # <ADV> (Square Enix) {2016.01.28} (¥5.980) - 178.016 / NEW (47,8%)
[PS4] Dragon Quest Builders: Alefgard o Fukkatsu Niseyo <ADV> (Square Enix) {2016.01.28} (¥7.800) - 141.369 / NEW (37,9%)
[PS3] Dragon Quest Builders: Alefgard o Fukkatsu Niseyo <ADV> (Square Enix) {2016.01.28} (¥6.800) - 53.154 / NEW (14,3%)
Total Sales: 372.539 

[PS4] Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and Prophecy's End <RPG> (Square Enix) {2016.05.27} (¥7.800) - 184.820 / NEW (49,4%)
[PSV] Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and Prophecy's End <RPG> (Square Enix) {2016.05.27} (¥6.800) - 120.664 / NEW (32,3%)
[PS3] Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and Prophecy's End <RPG> (Square Enix) {2016.05.27} (¥6.800) - 68.376 / NEW (18,3%)
Total Sales: 373.860

Both games sold practically the same, but Builders had a better attach rate on handheld (almost half of the sales were on Vita). On the other side, Heroes II has better attach rate for the PS3 and the PS4 version".



According to VGChartz, DQH2 has quite a huge difference to DQH. Especially them PS3 sales......
320k ----> 70k
260k ----> 180k

Kinda dissapointed by DQH2 sales considering it's an actual open world JRPG with full blown quests and online multiplayer.

DQH1 was much less ambitious and it sold more.

Ps4 hardware waaaaaaaay up on this week last year. May 2016 has been good to it.

I just noticed in the first 5 months the ps4 has closed the gap on the Wii U by over 400k.

Gap is down to like 300k now.

Give it 2-3 months time and you should see the PS4 ahead of the Wii U in japan.

Wow! 3DS almost at 21mil!!!!! Doing quite well especially if you compare it to its other competitor, the PSvita.

3DS does crazy well in Japan.

Out of the 55m or so sold worldwide, 21m are in japan? thats crazy.



Wii U and 3DS should have done what the vita and ps4 have done. Basically saved the Vita in Japan.
