Or in other words, likely the 7th highest debut in Japan from our known numbers, assuming Famitsu doesn't notably disagree, which could happen:

In before the "How the f... did they get those numbers" reaction: the site is legit and they say they were able to get the datas by themselves.

Not bad if true. Nintendo needs to give consumers some hope for the future tho. No one knows anything about the system past Spring of next year. Unacceptable.

Indeed it is unacceptable given that at this stage in the life-cycle, people are buying a console for future titles and potential. Although we could argue, we all know what's coming (3D Mario and Zelda!). Still debating whether to sell mine - right now all my interest is in 360 and PS3's incredible 2013 line-ups. Although I know the moment I sell it, Yoshi's Land will become a reality and I'll be gutted. So holding fire, for now...

Of course, next week numbers will be the ones to watch. But at least it's not a disastrous start (software sales are kinda meh I guess but hw numbers are pretty good).

Edit: lol at those sellthrough numbers. Warrior Orochi, ZombiU and Tekken Tag will never sell through their first shipment.

Enterbrain gives early numbers to subscribers but it's weird they haven't leaked at Japanese blogs first. Still, they seem real.

Good start (excellent considering price versus Wii), but so was the Vita's.

Software is the only thing that will keep the steam going, and right now, Nintendo hasn't really inspired much confidence on that front.

Also, I'm shocked MH wasn't the highest selling game. Was there no desperate SKU without a bundle?

Edit: ugh, that software...

Again, what are you gamers buying the system for? Heh

For some perspective, it has outsold every Vita 3rd party game but 2 released so far.

Greg from Gamekult also occasionally works for Famitsu, if I recall correctly. Maybe he gave them the numbers.

there's never really been a MH launched in a comparable time frame, has there? I'd say that a third of the Wii U owners buying a third version of this is pretty good, personally.

Yeah I was gonna say. The PS2 was truly a beast sales-wise. It's saddening to see the PS3 numbers in comparison. :(

Although perhaps the PS3 only had a few days of sales or something, I'm not sure.

I don't know why you're shocked. This is a HD port of a handheld game a lot of people already have, if anything I'm surprised it sold so well.

If those numbers are real, I would say Monster Hunter did pretty well for being a launch title and a porting. And even Zombi U, considering what kind of title it is...not that bad. But Tekken and Warriors Orochi...urgh. I mean, URGH.

Given the post launch lineup ... *crickets* Doesn't help that there's so many Japanese third party games not on Wii U, but PS3.

Comparing it to a failure platform does little at this time as Vita is on life support as it is.

Well, software sales are significantly better than what Vita launched with so at the very least I don't expect a complete disaster.
