Forsights of First day of 5/17, Japan.

There is no noted soft. To stretch a point, Ordin Sphere (PS2, Atlas). Is 15~20k a reasoneble prediction?

Oops, I forgot very important soft. Shining Wind (PS2, Sega). Probably 40k or more only preorders?

 

Some Info

First Shipments of DQS will become about 250k...

Take a while the number will be appeared.


Looks like Wii had a small shipment or that Paper Mario have gotten some real word of mouth out. Also nice to see Big Brain Wii.



 

 

Buy it and pray to the gods of Sigs: Naznatips!

Thanks y-koron. BBA Wii climbing the charts. Good stick for FF12RW and SPM. FFT on top as expected.



Looks like Big Brain Academy Wii degree started a new wave of training software boom, if you can call it like that, Brain training games were always in the top 50 for a long time. But now four games in the top ten.



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

I'm not sure what's behind the Brain Training DS boom. I don't believe it's the Wii interation that did it though. I'm going to take a guess than the DS spent another week over 200k, and that the Wii slipped just under 100k.

True a good question is also if Paper Mario will get NSMB legs to track above the other paper marios.

According to Neogaf it means that the store will stop selling PS2, PS3 and PSP. I don't know if it is true, or if the store has anything to do with gaiming.

Just under 100k sounds a lot knowing that Paper Mario outsold Wii Sport. I mean Wii sport usually have an attachment ratio around 60%

 Simply tranlatesion (Probably not good translations).

Yes, but the question is why? Out of stock or  there is no interest. PS4 claims it's because of poor sale. OriGin said it's due stock.
