Wastes hours checking old Famitsu software data, but that's why we love him.

I guess I'll technically give it until the end of the year since Nintendo has some decent selling franchises coming, but I would say barring a price drop soon the game is about up in Japan for Wii U.

20K is just terrible, and frankly the Pikmin 3 sales are a bit underwhelming as well.

C/P from other thread:

It's pretty obvious it needs a price cut to go along with the games. Too bad there won't be games coming out consistently.

Also, it seems Pikmin 3 on Famitsu also includes download cards.

Also from the other thread
Even if the Wii U could have done better, it did a decent portion of the console sales last week, almost a quarter, and that's with Pikmin 3 coming out for two days within the catalogued week rather than the usual four days. Don't forget to take this into account.

This week has a holiday in it so it'll also help for the charts next week.

For the record, Pikmin 3 was release on Jul 13. So only tracking 2 days.

These are the Pikmin 3 sales based on two days correct?

Wonder how next week is going to look like then.

Wait what Pikmin at 92k.....meh a bit below par.
WiiU needs a price cut asap. Its just appealing to nintendo fans and that base ain't big.

Turning around bad sales like this won't happen from one week to another, it's quite a long process if anything.

Too bad for Wii U. Though, I'm happy Pikmin at least has some sort of success, I don't want this franchise to die with its third iteration.

Wii u is dead. This is the highest sales are going to be until Donkey Kong comes out. Now its back to sub 10k for wiiu for the rest of the year. Pack it up nintendo you fucked up

I expected it, nslu, and a new model to result in more than these pathetic sales. What bigger day does nintendo have in the next 4 months?
Toukiden being more of a system seller than Pikmin is kinda sad.

What's even sadder is that Toukiden will probably have more sales than Pikmin 3.

That 22k seems completely normal for a home console in Japan (if you go back and look at prior weeks in the year).

I should probably note that by "normal" I don't mean "good."

This is the grimmest of grim realities for Nintendo.

And Toukiden is split between PSP and Vita lol!

It's tough because whether these numbers are good or not for two days, the western release will likely not do as well.

Don't forget Luigis digital sales, which should make the majority of sales.

This is kinda alarming, perhaps more than WiiU's HW numbers.
Well it was only 2 days so who knows.

That is a very low number for Wii U. Its on the lower end what most people predicted, nobody predicted sub 20k as far as Ive seen.

Price cut is needed, that is all there is to say

20K is just terrible, and frankly the Pikmin 3 sales are a bit underwhelming as well.

Sakurai was just told he and his team won't be able to sleep for the next 4 months, within which they have to finish Smash 4, and that the 3DS version was delayed 1 year.

It was also really hot to the level of heat wave in Japan last week, and it came out in a holiday weekend where people were not in the streets. Even the Pokémon Centers were fairly empty and that seldom happens.

This has an effect on sales. I'm not saying this to spin but as an explanation. You need to factor in all the factors in order to make a determination.

There were two possible gif outcomes for today; rising from coffin at a funeral or horse dying scene from Neverending story.

Does anyone have the horse dying scene one handy?

Today is the day I can confidently call the grim end of the WiiU.

20k is not okay off of the biggest pushed thing this year until December by any estimation. Thats another half a year of shit really until Mario.

Surely disaster on their own shores will force Nintendo's hand into supplanting US and EU Pikmin 3 releases with those regions official price-cuts because it seems quite clearly the game needs some other circumstance to push it further.

Not really. The games have legs (Pikmin 3's isn't large, but it still has legs).

Let's not forget that Muramasa Rebirth, a port of a niche Wii game, sold more than DQX Wii U and Game and Wario.

All charts launch-aligned. All data from Famitsu.
Weekly numbers presented in logarithmic base 1,000 for clarity. In that case, zero units are represented by one unit.









Note, since this draws only from the top 30 it does not represent smaller titles.
e.g., software sales of zero are assumed if the console has no games in the top 30.



Tally of the number of titles for that platform in the top 30 for each week.
Certain weeks may have titles that aren't represented. These are the PS3's 7th and 25th, and the Wii's 4th and 23rd.

Feel free to criticize or point out mistakes.

Agreed. Japan over the last 5 years has become land of the handhelds.
