Thread: Japan Sales 11/21 - 11/27
Japan Sales 11/21 - 11/27
That's the 2nd week ni no kunis been out right? Those sales are poor and being outsold by CoD again, wtf is going on over there. lol
Surprised at how well the PSP is still selling despite Vita out in less than a month.
Yeah I expected more from Ni No Kuni but it should stay around the 20K mark for awhile. I'm surprised MW3 has managed to stay in the top 20 for its second week.
FF Type-0 is doing amazing though.

That is funny. They tracked 35 DS Lite sales.
194,978 only for Zelda's first week says a lot about the state of consoles in Japan...
Zelda used to break close to a million easily, if not more, in its first week in Japan. What's up with that ?
Otherwise, same $#@! as usual, DS on top, PS3/PSP selling decently and the 360 trying hard but still relevant.
Yeah I was expecting more from LoZ as well, they might rerelease it with updated graphics on Wii U though.
I'm with ddplanet on this one, it kinda illustrates the attitude and allure of console gaming in Japan. If that was a handheld Zelda it would have sold a $#@! load in the first week
Sold very well in the US though
I dunno tbh, I think Zelda has just had its day really, even if it was on DS/3DS I don't think it'll wouldve done what it used to, its definitely not Dragon Quest, the sales that DQ9 managed is what Zelda used to do.
it seems japan is the land of the hand helds but the ps3 is doing well and the 360 is still pluging along

Who keeps buying just over 1k of 360's in japan, I find that funny since it has read about 1,500 for a while now.

They're probably being flogged for super cheap now, considering retailers aren't even stocking them anymore (apparently). Clearing shelf space
Why are they still buying the PSP in Japan? The vita is coming out in december 17th over there
I find the 3DS numbers very interesting. Software is lacking yet the unit sales are extremely high. It is not as if it is a new piece of hardware either - since the launch hype has had time to wear down. Must be the anticipation of the coming games i.e. Mario Kart and Monster Hunter. Or maybe the marketing is spot-on over in Japan.
Post price-cut the fortunes of the 3DS have dramatically improved in Japan. It seems Nintendo still remains the top-dog in portable machines. The Vita will struggle to even achieve half of those unit sales.
