Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan sales (Week 2): Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - January 08-14, 2018

I look at Xbox One X's total at 6 and wonder how people can call Nintendo a failure for selling 30k. Obviously, we have different definitions for the word failure. PS4 and Switch are both doing well in Japan. No where near failure. Also the stock issue is completely understandable how well the Switch has been selling. Aren't they still breaking records... I mean thats more than good enough. Stop panicking just because the PS4 wins a week.

    Ps4 won.

    Anyone can tell me if this has a chance of being the top selling Zelda game of all time in Japan? I know they are not big on Zelda so sales are low across the board.

    Just checked the zelda database and to my amazement OOT is only the third best selling zelda game in Japan, Adventures of link sold 1.61m and the original LOZ on the NES has sold 1.69m units. So Botw needs to double it's current sales to reach the top so no there isn't any chance of it selling the most, it would be a miracle.

    Oh shit, PS4 won a week :O

    Also, what's up with those Dissidia reader reviews?

    Subpar single player experience compared to previous installments? I think.

    Nope, it's the lag in online battles. Dissidia is very popular in Japan arcades. People still line up for it. It also doesn't have any lag whatsoever despite also being an online arcade game. The console version however suffes from inconsistent network performance. It's generally ok but getting into a match with even just one player with subpar connection creates lag for everyone which is where the negative reviews are coming from. Just imagine playing the flawless arcade version then switching to what could have been a more convenient console version then encountering lag.

    I will add my own tables later. 



    Nintendo really sucks with the Switch. 3DS easily had this much supply iirc, which is a big reason why Switch still hasn't surpassed it aligned.

    Can't believe arms is selling well, it was dead a few months back.

    Never dead, just didn't make the top 20 (sold like 50k-80k while not charting for a couple of months)

    Ocarina of time on N64 sold 1.45m in Japan according to vgchartz so even with digital included botw doesn't have much of a chance.

    I wouldnt say there is no chance... High wall? Yes extremly high but impossible isnt a option yet. The game is still selling. 

     

    We could be potientially be at 1.05mil right now shipped+digital.
