Akiba's Trip in June, I think.

Vita hasn't dipped below 20k for a few weeks now. Not bad.



Guess I was wrong about SAO, but it'll dive 80%- next week.

Very strong FW for SAO, I always believed it would surpass 100k but not near 150k or even more with digitals, and it just smashes that 150 LTD target to the wall.
TFFCC did well, but below my expectations, good for them the bundle helped 3DS to keep the throne this week, next week every platform should be up.
MH Frontier flopped hard, just DIE CAPCOM you and your pathetic greed for money.

On the plus side, we all came in with low expectations and now Im crazy happy to see SAO's numbers after I predicted just 90k opening =D


And that doesn't even count digital sales, which were quite healthy due to the PSN bonuses :)

May I ask you what kind of bonuses? I just know it won't be any price reduction for the game, it just got launched. Or is it related to some pre-golden week event ?

Some costumes plus an entry into a raffle to win some figurines and such.

Why?

Golden Week ^.^

I'm assuming that is Japan's version of Black Friday.  Are we talking about the same kind of boosts, in the 100%s?

What were your expectations for the game?  At least according to VGChartz's data, this is how the sales of the original looks like
