Forums - Sales Discussion - Media Create & Famitsu Japan Sales: Week 32, 2012 (Aug 06 - 12) - Download numbers for NSMB 2 revealed!

Can the 3DS get to 8 million before the Vita gets to its first million?

The Vita desperately needs 'its Monster Hunter like game'..if there isn´t any by the end of next year (or much earlier?), I wonder if Sony will pull the plug.

Well, Onitore has legs so i'm not suprised for it's sales this week, Mario dropped and is selling average for a 2D Mario game depending on what the sales are for the Eshop and Vita still under 8k. All in all not an exciting week.

Not bad for DQ10 and Wii, but expected them to be higher. NSMB2 sales are disappointing. I really hope digital sales are huge because it's starting to compare terribly to its bigger brother...

Basically, NSMB FW > NSMB2 3 weeks of sales! Its amazing how the game kept selling 100k+ for 13 consecutive weeks!!!

Next week I think is Obon so everything should be up.

Don't forget that the DS had 2 million more hardware units sold more than the 3DS at the same time. Also take in series fatigue.

Which is Nintendo's fault. Focusing on collecting coins is not interesting, and almost 100% sure people buy it for the platforming, which again, doesn't show anything new.

As someone who hasn't played, but watched the walkthrough (I know, I know) it was dissaponting to see nothing new on level design and worlds looking like DS rather than Wii. Hopefully NSMBU is a true NSMB sequel.

DKCTF didn't move consoles

3rd parties working on vista games in Japan must be panicking.

Anyone using Vista should be in panic mode. XP is better.

Expected a much higher drop for 3DS hardware. What's keeping it high? There's no new releases.

Mario and LL I guess. It's still dropping, but I expect the boost to be sustained for a few weeks.

lol, it's over 100k so the boost IS sustaining!  You're always disappointed with Nintendo, pezus.

What? That's exactly what I said



Oh, didn't notice the pie chart... Pac man sure has some python like jaws ;)
3DS is a beast (already past 7 million). It held well this week, and could even increase next week due to Obon. I think it will establish a baseline around 80k for the remainder of the year. At this rate we could see it reach 10 million before Jan 1st.
