Just wow at the XB1 charts. Did stuff like Battlefield Hardline and Witcher 3 not even come out on the system? Literally every western game is a Sony exclusive even if its technically not.

Also cool to see some western games that high up. Never would have thought Witcher 3 outsold Xenoblade.

Dragon Quest Heroes did at least 750k in Japan alone between PS3 and PS4? Nice. It's definitely going to cross that million marker once it releases this October.

why is there a separate list for Xbone? If it didn't chart, it didn't chart. No need for a pity list.

Nice job for these. Especially The Witcher. Geralt putting in work. Makes me wonder how Fallout 4 will do in Japan.

Yeah, they probably praying to be saved by Western sales.
Yeah. Shit. Not good. :/
For comparison:

04. / 00. [PS3] Disgaea 4 (Nippon Ichi Software) {2011.02.24} - 79.425 / NEW
I believe NIS said they were targeting the Western audience a bit more with this release. Hopefully it works, because this drops the same day as Metal Gear Online and Rock Band 4.

So no games sold over a million in 2015?
Not in the first half of the year.
Yo-kai Watch Busters (released in July) is over a million now.

[3DS] Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team / White Dog Squad <ACT> (Level 5) {2015.07.11} (¥4.968) - 109.238 / 1.140.426 <80-100%> (-8%)

Animal Crossing: Home Happy Designer should follow soon.

i think 'western audience' means 'not vita'

it really should have been a psv/ps4 game. it probably would have done about 60k that way (40k vita/20k ps4).

the goal for the game through march 2017 worldwide was 150k though. at the end of the fiscal year, i think it'll actually be fairly close even if it doesn't hit.

Quoting myself from the other thread
&#332;kami;174370014 said:
Outside of the top 30 Xenoblade X sold 4.031, that's 4k in a 4 weeks.

Not as bad as Tales of Zestiria that sold 5.088 outside of top 30, that's 5k in 16 weeks.

Tales still sold over 3 times as much as Xenoblade but jeesh.

The game that has sold the most outside of top 30 is Mario Kart 7 (27k) followed by GTAV on PS4 (27k rounding them up GTAV is just s few hundred units away from Mario Kart) and God Eater 2: Rage Burst on Vita (24k).

Not in Jan-June, no, but now there is one (Yokai Watch) and three more possibly by the end of the year (Splatoon, Animal Crossing, and Monster Hunter). Can't think of any others off hand.

Splatoon at number 4 after only a month. With its legs could it reach a million this year in Japan.

Xenoblade didn't light the charts but considering how porrly stuff like Kirby and Yoshi did it's a respectable performance in line with the first. Hopefully Western sales are solid as well.

Dragon Quest Heroes did at least 750k in Japan alone between PS3 and PS4? Nice. It's definitely going to cross that million marker once it releases this October.
As Ultros posted, it already did in Asia.

Unless you're taking about Japan only

Given the recent track record with Famitsu, can we trust their numbers anymore? They seem to have biased discrepancies every week.

I can't keep track of all the GTAV SKUs out there, but has it officially hit 1 million in Japan?

Splatoon at number 4 after only a month. With its legs could it reach a million this year in Japan.

Xenoblade didn't light the charts but considering how porrly stuff like Kirby and Yoshi did it's a respectable performance in line with the first. Hopefully Western sales are solid as well.
Xenoblade is going to be released at more than one retailer with limited printings... I'd imagine its hard to do worse than that unless no one knows you exist at all.

Splatoon at 4! With this kind of start and mindshare, the series will be massive if handled properly.
Already handling it well.

They track different retailers. They aren't biased, and they aren't even the tracker that either Sony or Nintendo use so what would be the point of being biased?

Interesting to note the ratio between hardware and software sales.

Hardware:

3DS: 932,931
PS4: 539,371
Vita: 497,202
Wii U: 273,064

Software:*

3DS: 4,888,293
PS4: 1,745,552
Vita: 1,376,691
Wii U: 1,305,979

Ratio:

3DS: 5.24
PS4: 3.24
Vita: 2.77
Wii U: 4.78

* Only counting games in top 100. I think Vita in particular has another 5000 or so games that sold <30k, so its ratio is probably notably higher than 2.77.
