I know 35K a week is pretty stellar, but I really thought WiiFit would be selling 50K consistently. I wonder if that'll show the same kind of legs as WiiSports?

Nothing from gaffers unfortunately, and Famitsu gave it the same scores as the first I believe. According to imageepoch's blog (translated by duckroll), Shuetsu Kadowaki was the director of the game this time. Hopefully that means it's better than the first.

Once one household buys it that's it though, and it is more expensive.

Quite a discrepancy on MK compared to Famitsu. Slow week all in all.

The Bleach HTS fanbase must be one of the most consistant, this one should go to around 80-90k as well. Do the games differ or is it just a yearly rooster update?

Well it is the only PS3 game in the Top 30 and it held steady, though with the 10th best selling game at 10k that's not saying much. I thought it would do much worse, but in the end still rather disappointing sales for Sega.

These software numbers are low, and hardware is down across the board, except for psp.

also, it's quite interesting how far Monster Hunter has gone on PSP. i would say it is one of the best system sellers to come in years if it can manage to keep the PSP that high (and being good enough in multiplayer so that people purchase it instead of pirating it)

the Mario Karts still hold their own.

It performed to or even above expectations, but certainly hasn't made back the money Sega put into it.

I'm sure they were expecting RGG Kenzan to give PS3 a sizeable hardware bump for some time when deciding the budget for Valkyria, which just didn't happen.

I don't think so.

The original did 21k in the first week, for a LTD of 55k. And that was on the GC of 2005 (meaning deader than dead) :lol .
