Hardware predictions:
GBmicro 175k
DS 60k
PSP 45k
PS2 30k
GBASP 10k

And I'm pretty sure those brain games are going to pass a million each sooner or later.

Have to say this once again...

Tamagotchi > WE9UE

Surprised to see Gyakuten Saiban sell so well, considering it's a remake. Maybe a lot of people who hasn't played games before on the GBA is giving the game a try.

Man... how many Super Mario Bros Famicom mini version has been sold by now? 1.5 million or something!?

I didn't think that the Tamagochi game would sell so much. Its awesome that Phenoix Wright Ace Attorney sold well.

Are those your predictions, or semi-official estimates? Looks spot-on.

One of the best selling sports franchises of all time was outsold by a 20 year old rerelease on a 5 year old handheld.

Japan is...so strange.

If there is any justice, this game will sell a lot more. Hopefully it can break 100k, at least. It's one of the best written games I've ever played, and the English translation is almost flawless.

Does it make good use of the DS touchscreen, or is it more or less a straight port?

WTF is it with Super Mario brothers? Why doesn't Nintendo KEEP making 2-d Mario games? With the sales like this of a what, 20 year old game, THATS FUCKING 2-D, It only makes sense.


Holy hell. With the sales of Mario just going dumb-shit insane, they should re-package every single damn Mario game EVER made and re-release them, staggering them over a 6-month time period.


How much of these game sales are PURE profit as well? I mean, only the cost of the cart, and packaging is a factor.

I wonder how much, JUST Super Mario Brothers has made Nintendo in it's various forms. I would LOVE to see that number man.

I would be more puzzled about Tamagotchi outselling WE9 than SMB, though that did come out of left field a bit.

You know what? I think I got it. Nintendo should just start releasing games, in the EXACT order that they did for the NES when it was released in Japan.

Japan goes nuts over retro games, so what could be a bigger hit, then repeating history as a whole? I mean, why the fuck not?

Agreed. That's why I've played all 3 in the series, and is dying for Capcom to make a completely new entry.

150,000 for TAMAGOTCHI?! Where the hell did that come from?!
Hope Gyakuten Saiban DS has some legs, I've officially been convinced by GAF to pick it up once it gets over here. :D

Nintendo must be shaking its collective heads at all territories right now. Their handhelds are absolutely ripping it up in Japan, and the DS just can't catch a break anywhere else.

Super Mario Brothers = CASH MONEY

LMAO. I guess the appeal of the original Super Mario Bros. WILL NEVER EVER diminish. :lol Hell, I'm also surprised Tamagotchi sold so well. However... this sucks. Crap like Tamagotchi sells when Castlevania bombs.

PSP VS DS sounds more and more like GC VS PS2 in Japan.

currrently PSP still manages to get some small boost in sales with big releases, but soon enough the sales boost will become less and less.

Position 9 and 16 are under the brain training that we know sells around 4k a day. Gyakuten Saiban probably sold around 6-8k in its third day. It didn´t bomb, but at least I expected more. On the other hand, I expected much more from WE.
heidern said:
Except that most games sell mostly on their first day. We've had Brain Training overtake games that debut over 100K for the week on the daily charts. The only way to truly judge new releases is on release day. And to be honest Winning Eleven and Gyakuten Saiban could be anywhere between 30-130K, you just can't tell except though guessing by looking at past performance.
Rock_Man said:
Games with sales of over 100k usually ranks higher than brain training for more than one day.
I like being right. :)

But anyway, pretty amazing week. Tamagotchi is now the 3rd fastest selling DS game ever in Japan. Also, it debuted behind Robot Wars but handily outsold it through the weekend. It must have averaged over 20K a day over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This game is not a flash in the pan and should have the legs to even compete with JSS. Taking that into account as well as Brain Training jumping back up this week DS sales could be pushing 70-80K this week. WE9 did pretty damn good considering how soft the psp software market has been. However the legs are very much in question. Launch games like Mingol and Ridge Racers were guaranteed continued sales, WE9:UE will have a fight on its hands to even get to 200K before it disappears off the charts. Oh well, at least we can finally say the biggest psp game of the year so far isn't a psone port.

I know this will sound strange, but hear me out for a second.(All this relates ONLY TO JAPAN)


Could Sony, by releasing a handheld, and getting trounced by Nintendo, be, in a way, setting itself up for a losing effort with the PS3? My thinking goes like this;

Gamecube gets killed by PS2, gamers see Sony as king and keep buying products.

PSP gets killed by DS/Micro, gamers see Nintendo as king, keep buying products.


Couple that with the fact that the Revolution seems to be like a console version of the DS(By that I mean, new, and interesting) could the unthinkable happen, and we see a complete reversal in Japan?

I know this sounds wacky, but public image is a big deal, and the VERY public killing of the PS in Japan may lead the Revoltion/PS3 battle into the same direction. I KNOW this is COMPLETE conjecture, but hey, it's late, and I'm completly dumbfounded at the sales of Mario brothers.

Oh yeah, Mario brothers will be available for download on launch in Japan right?

I mean who would have thought that the DS would be just on cruise controll like this?
