Wow, Famitsu numbers!

Nice hold for Pokemon and good hold for 3DS hardware. Not as much of a Vita boost as I thought.

I don't understand. Why are we using a Media Create Sales title and then putting up Famitsu sales numbers? Isn't that confusing? And are the hardware numbers based on Famitsu totals or MC totals?

Can't decide whether the Fatal Frame numbers are bad or not. On one hand it's a lower debut than FF2 or FF3 (both of which were around 40k), on the other hand FF4 debuted at 29k and went on to be the best-selling entry in the series. Plus this is a remake rather than a brand new entry.

Last week 3DS did 70k according to MC. Instead, we have 66k for Pokemon's week. So, they should be Famitsu hardware numbers.

Surprised 3DS didn't drop by a significant amount considering the LL announcement. Suppose the amount of software available has something to do with that.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Culdcept is performing nice, these niche titles really are selling well on 3DS so far. Calcio Bit could be the next performance surprise, demos and Nintendo Direct are definitely helping to get the word of mouth out for these games.

Rune Factory 4 and EO 4 should also perform healthy.

Then why put it up at all like this? I don't see the point.
Is it really that confusing? The archive is based on Media Create threads and we could get last week's Famitsu hw numbers from half year report, except from PS2.

Fixed. Yes, Nintendo did also a specific Direct for Calciobit.

Fixed. Yes, Nintendo did also a specific Direct for Calciobit.
This, great to see these games performing between the big million sellers.

MGS HD did alright I guess? I think that's less than MGS3D, but meh.
Definitely, its pretty much free money for Konami.

btw. ReRelease - Konami should think about a ReRelease of Love+, which fixes everything and could benefit from the 3DS LL launch.

There are so many new entries in the Top 30, I need time to analyze the data xD

03./00. [PS3] Robotics;Notes # <ADV> (5pb.) {2012.06.28} (¥7.140) - 57.797 / NEW
04./00. [3DS] Culdcept <TBL> (Nintendo) {2012.06.28} (¥4.800) - 54.086 / NEW


These two games seem the winners of this week.

01./01. [NDS] Pokemon Black 2 / White 2 <RPG> (Pokemon Co.) {2012.06.23} (¥4.800) - 416.850 / 2.035.471 (-74%)

Even if 2 million is a huge mark it looks bad compared to the first title (3.409.457 same time frame)

06./00. [PS3] Resident Evil Chronicles HD Selection <STG> (Capcom) {2012.06.28} (¥4.990) - 28.042 / NEW

Very low debut, Resident Evil: Revival Selection sold 76,638 units.

[PSV] Metal Gear Solid HD Edition <ADV> (Konami) {2012.06.28} (¥4.980) - 23.586 / NEW

Bad, very bad, even the poor Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D sold more.

07./00. [WII] Fatal Frame 2: Wii Edition <ADV> (Nintendo) {2012.06.28} (¥6.800) - 24.804 / NEW

It could have been worse, Fatal Frame 4 sold 29.869 units. Though I don't expect Fatal Frame 2 to have the same legs.

Vita 22k. Ouch. After P4, a new color and MGSHD? What's the next "big" thing for it?

Edit: No Fire Emblem and Kid Icarus. I think Nintendo should start a new wave of advertising for those 2 games.

Some comparison:

CULDCEPT
[360] Culdcept Saga (Bandai Namco) - 19.984 / 23.947 / 83,45% 22/11/06
[NDS] Culdcept DS (Sega) - 50.468 / 85.010 / 59,37% 16/10/08
[PS1] Culdcept: Expansion (Media Factory) - 39.700 / 128.669 / 30,85% 28/04/99
[PS2] Culdcept Second Expansion (Sega) - 33.921 / 79.546 / 42,64% 26/09/02
[SAT] Culdcept (Sega) - 19.500 / 31.096 / 62,71% 30/10/97
[SDC] Culdcept Second (Media Factory) - 33.947 / 65.501 / 51,83% 12/07/01

CULDCEPT 3DS with 54k is the best debut for the series up to now.

METAL GEAR
[PS3] Metal Gear Solid HD Edition (Konami) - 58.864
[3DS] Metal Gear Solid: The Snake Eater 3D (Konami) - 32.569
[PSV] Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection - 23.586

Already available on PS3, going on the market also after the MGS3ds release, on a lower userbase it performs poorly in generale terms but it is understandable and not so bad.

FATAL FRAME
Famitsu - First Week
Fatal Frame 1 (PS2) - 21,770
Fatal Frame 2 (PS2) - 42,006
Fatal Frame 3 (PS2) - 46,671
Fatal Frame 4 (WII) - 29,869
Fatal Frame 2 (WII) - 24,804

It debut in the middle between the 1st and the 4th, we'll see if it will have the same legs of the 4th episode, but I'd consider it a "normal" debut especially because it's a remake.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Miku at the end of august.
I wonder if Vita sales can stabilize at +10k or if they will drop on pre-Persona levels soon. I guess it also depends on what kind of impact the 3DS LL launch will have on its sales, next two months could be horrible for Vita.
