ily declining.

3ds continues to be a monster especially the software. Paper Mario is gonna cross the 400k mark next week which looks pretty good to me.

The perfect Dark 01-07-2013 12:25 PM

That was fast

Lord-Audie 01-07-2013 12:25 PM

If WiiU (a console designed to appease the JP living room) cannot crack the market in japan....

I think is almost safe to say that Japan is a handheld market. Well, 3ds market at this point.

Bruno MB 01-07-2013 12:25 PM

It seems that Famitsu stop tracking PS2 and NDS :(

AniHawk 01-07-2013 12:27 PM

nsmb2 > 3d land next week

good to see the far superior game selling better.

Why would you do that? 01-07-2013 12:27 PM

I'm a bit confused. It says last year the 3DS sold 203k but also the last YTD was 203k? Was that a mistake, or is last year not week 52, or...?

[QUOTE=kinggroin;46146379]Iwata: "Wii U sales are steady"




:-([/QUOTE]

I thought the census was ~80k for this week? and probably a small bump for next week, considering MC numbers often differ from Famitsu's, it could be the case that Wii U disappointed by a bit more than expected. 77k however seems to be in line with expectations iirc.

Yeah, it was an expected drop, certainly. It still missed even the more modest expectation for that drop though.

I'm not confident that there's upcoming software that'll keep things "steady" at the very least, so this sucker may plummet faster than the bullet bill in that one gif.

I'm surprised by this little drop (not that it'll change the bad overall performance) . Positive news?

urfe 01-07-2013 12:33 PM

Some historical console numbers seem wonky, but that's alright.

Paper Mario is doing much better than I thought it would. I had no idea how popular it was. I bet Fantasy Life will sell pretty well in 2013. Hopefully word of mouth takes it far. I wonder how far word of mouth can take Animal Crossing. It's definitely broke some boundaries other games did not break.

I'm not worried about the WiiU yet. These numbers aren't good by any means, but I don't think they are horrible (there is an in between). Dragon Quest X and Pikmin 3 are still on the way, and they're bound to be announcing games soon (January or February?)

It's great the 3DS is doing great, and I hope it turns into more 3rd party support for Japan and the West, so Nintendo can focus more on making great WiiU games.

Vita is doing bad, but I'll still buy one before I buy a WiiU. With Tactics Ogre and whatnot at 2000 yen, I can have fun for years with it.

Due to the holiday period, considering the lack of software in the chart.

I'd expect one more week at this level, then a steady decline.

Real nice Paper Mario sales

michaelius 01-07-2013 12:38 PM

Can't wait to see Wii U sales in February/March ;)

Why would you do that? 01-07-2013 12:38 PM

[QUOTE=DrWong;46146543]OP? >



I'm surprised by this little drop (not that it'll change the bad overall performance) . Positive news?[/QUOTE]

A week is 7 days. 7 days * 52 weeks = 364 days. Of course, a year is 365 or 366 days, so there is an extra day or two not accounted for when you count a year as 52 weeks. Those days add up over time, so Famitsu and Media Create need to create a Week 53 from time to time.

z0m3le 01-07-2013 12:39 PM

[QUOTE=kinggroin;46146528]Yeah, it was an expected drop, certainly. It still missed even the more modest expectation for that drop though.

I'm not confident that there's upcoming software that'll keep things "steady" at the very least, so this sucker may plummet faster than the bullet bill in that one gif.[/QUOTE]

I would expect it to drop yes, I figure it will not sell through it's shipments until sometime in Feburary, and then maybe receive a total of 500k more units for japan in Q1, but that is still 1.5M for japan between launch and April 1st.

DrWong 01-07-2013 12:40 PM

Also, sorry for the ego-trip but I'm glad I was right when saying last week, after we had the 1rst day sell-through:[QUOTE=DrWong;45831317]So can we expect a +100K first week, at least, for Fantasy Life? I'm betting on 120K/150K with a 250K shipment (out of my "[strike]ass[/strike] Heavy" prediction)[/QUOTE]
Now I'm curious to know about the shipment.

AdventureRacing 01-07-2013 12:41 PM

So much 3DS software on the chart, it's hard to know where to start. It really does look like it's starting to hit it's stride now. No other platform really looks that strong right now and it'll be interesting to see how any of them plan to change that.

[QUOTE=Why would you do that?;46146467]I'm a bit confused. It says last year the 3DS sold 203k but also the last YTD was 203k? Was that a mistake, or is last year not week 52, or...?[/QUOTE]

Famitsu had 53 weeks in 2012, but there was no week 53 in 2011, so the YTD from last year were just the numbers from 52 weeks ago (the way the table is currently being generated). I didn't bother to make any special conditions in the formula. =P

I could manually just copy the same YTD from week 52 in 2011, I guess, but the comparison isn't apples to apples. Maybe I should leave it blank?

The last day could be no more than 20.000 consoles so it doesn't change anything.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Wii launch one week earlier? Not that I'm expecting the same level of performance for the Wii U but it's worth taking this into account.

No, the Japanese name is Endou Mamoru

[spoiler] And it's so strange when, while an Inazuma Eleven episode is aired on Disney XD here in Italy, the show description calls him with the Japanese name ( Endou Mamoru indeed) and not with the English one used in the show :lol [/spoiler]

3DS continues to be a beast, Vita on life support, and Wii U meh. Nintendo needs a Direct for Wii U real soon.

[QUOTE=kinggroin;46146379]Iwata: "Wii U sales are steady"




:-([/QUOTE]

What did you expect?

They probably have to switch into beast mode again like they did with the 3DS and it's their own fault for many reasons. Those sales are not good and should be way better considering we're talking about Nintendo here.

6 days. Even counting a 100.000k a week it is still far below. The launch was weaker and the last week was only 75k it won't change a lot

Need a new Direct, Nintendo. Super Wii games need announcing stat!

Yakuza 5 doing pretty good. I think it has a chance to be the best selling 1st edition of the game (Yakuza 2: 572,917).

I expected pretty much what we got. My post wasn't one of surprise, just expected disappointment. Maybe a little more so than I expected actually.

Will they give anything to current Wii U owners if they make a quick price drop?

ShinUltramanJ 01-07-2013 12:54 PM

I can only see U sales continue to plummet considering Nintendo has nothing to release on it. Suprised Monster Hunter sales are so poor on the U. It's clearly a handheld franchise.

I'd just say/use below, without the "far" because I don't consider 25% less as "far below". But it's just me.

Bumhead 01-07-2013 12:55 PM

I wonder what will be an acceptable drop for the Wii U next week.

What's the reaction if it drops to 50k? 40k? Can't drop to less than 30k, can it?

Doing another ambassador program will set a bad precedent for the industry. At least nintendo.

Why bother buying the console at launch? Just wait a few months for the obligatory price drop and free games.
