I'm with Chris on this. I don't remember any "Kirby bomb" comments for this title this year :|

I remember last year with Epic Yarn and how Chris bookmarked a post for eating crow later. People barely knew about the Kirby sales power/legs before but this year I didn't see/remember anything refering to bomb sales.

I don't think anyone said it was an outright bomb this time, but I remember at least one post citing Kirby's sales as an example of Wii software generally underperforming this year. It was a few weeks ago. Not that it matters too much anyway.

Anyway what kind of lifetime sales do you think Kirby Wii will get? 600k? I was expecting around 500k before but it's going to easily beat that.

Last year, inside-games.jp or Gamespot provided them at much hours later than the usual MC datas, and only the top 10 (with the rest of datas released with the rest of top 50 )

EDIT: Vita is only 72K? Holy fucking shit. That's far below what I expected. Way way below. :/ I thought the point of a holiday launch was to ensure early good sales numbers, not this. For compairsion, I would like to see original DS's second week launch numbers. That might be interesting.

If this is the trend and the shipment is really at 700k units it might sell out in April.

Vita is going to need some help. Did the 3ds go down a bit from last week?
Probably because there's not much exciting games for Vita?

Hope next year Vita does better with Persona 4, Gundam, Tales, etc.

I will buy two if that happens. Please Sony, lower your prices for th eVita, I am too poor to buy your bloody expensive (ie over priced) hardware in Europe while US is getting a better deal for it.

A bit below what the PSP did in its second week.

But I don't think anybody wants a repeat of the PSP years from launch to mid 2007. Those... weren't good.

Even if they didn't get a new shipment, the initial one was 500k. The first two weeks of sales are still well, well below that.

It has been like this for the past two years, I see no reason to be surprised. It's the first year though that this spike is not enough to take the YTD back from PS3.

I thought it was 500k confirmed and a lot of 3G units just aren't moving. Maybe people really only want the WiFi or at least WiFi/3G, and not the 3G standalone.
