WiiU +100k LOL

Is very sad to see #FE flopping this way, however it looks like it has sold half of the stock 



So looks like Atlus was not expecting big sales anyway.

It's up to retailers to determine how big the first shipment will be, not the developer. Atlus could've expected 500k copies but if retailers don't order many copies, the shipment will be small. Not trying to pick on you. I've just seen this argument a few times and that's not the way it works. 

OT: Great Wii U numbers! Splatoon and Mario Maker also doing really well. The rest is meh. The console market has shrunk so badly: 100k used to be the bare minimum a console had to sell during the holidays to be considere a success. Today 100k for a home console is amazing.

Oh, ok, thanks is good to know.

Sad scenario for the game, lets hope it has legs or a good performance in the west. I dont have my hopes up though, but oh well, it is a strange choice for WiiU to beggin with, I'm very interested on it though.



Great numbers this week.

Great for Nintendo.

I'd like to know if it'll ever come close to beating it over a full year in Japan.  So far not even close.  

 

QUESTION: next week is week 53 of 2015 on media create.  But 2014 only had 52 weeks.  So will it be possible to compare it to a week from last year because it looks like it classes with what was week 1 of 2015 if you get what I mean
