Media Create Sales 12/24 - 12/30 2007

almost 8 weeks after launch, I think it's a MAJOR success for Capcom to have RE:UC in the top 30.
And don't forget that they do it in the holiday season, which means higher # for Capcom (and more profit to Capcom, and more RE game from Capcom for Wii).

Is it safe to say that most of RE/Biohazard fans in Japan have Wii ?

That makes sense. The PS2 games had visuals on the right level to allow them to easily do a port to PSP. The Wii version might provide the same opening for a potential DS port.
:lol

Speaking of MH3 for Wii..

I think it has the potential to be the best looking game on Wii. The PSP games look amazing for their hardware.

Not really as they still have to consider the online aspect, afterall Monster Hunter is a online game from the start. But I do hope they prove me wrong.

So I take it you didn't like the idea of starting a thread with the early Famitsu numbers and then adding in the Media-Create data in some days later after its delay?
*shrug* Too late now. Not that it really matters with another set of numbers less than 24 hours away.

So does that mean you just forgot or you didn't like the idea?

Which is why the suggestion of starting the thread with the earlier Famitsu data was made. ;) :p

PSP is a monster, is doing phenomenally in Japan. Congratulations to sony for having such a succseful device.

Japan is handheld land, absolutely.

On the console front:

Wii did o.k, PS3 doesn't compete. No matter what thing PS3 offers, it only takes a wii fit or a Mario and sonic to make the Wii sell 3 or 2:1....

I think SSBB will seal the deal here, I don't think PS3 will have a chance at being 1st in Japan once that game gets released.

So selling 10k less is the difference from being a monster to doing okay?

PSP software was pretty much absent from the top 30 list, and has been out quite a bit longer than the Wii.
I know that. That's why I'm wondering why he refers to the PSP as a monster, and yet calls the Wii's performance "ok"?

Edit:

This.
NDS - 13
WII - 8
PS2 - 3
PSP - 3
PS3 - 2
360 - 1
And this.

That depends how low the Wii and PSP drop after the holidays. Don't rule anything out.

The Wii beating the PSP in Famitsu makes his comment even more funny.

I think Wii did more than ok. PS3, like you said, did not do well at all and continues to perform abysmally, sadly.

Here's what both did last year, in the same time period:

Wii = 96,332
PS3 = 71,727

Wii is up 58%, compared to the same time period, last year.
PS3 is down 26.52%, compared to the same time period, last year.

Wii will overtake PSP. PSP is a three years old system and eventually its numbers will collapse while Wii will remain selling for longer.

Eh... we'll see...

It'll still be hard for a console to beat a handheld in hardware sales.

Are you being serious? Wii has more than half the install base of the PSP in its first year in the market. Giving each of them 5 years of life, Wii will continue on selling for four extra years while PSP will see sales more or less die in about two years. This not counting Wii is gonna be king of the generation and probably its life cycle will last longer than five years.

Since PSP is being used for a media device by many, it might just last a bit longer than the normal system. It all depends on whether Sony want to keep putting out redesigns or release a PSP2. Given the state of PS3 and all the money they've lost, I have a feeling that Sony might be inclined to milk the PSP for as long as they can.

Yes, but you know, Wii is a monster. I doubt Wii will ever beat DS sales. I would doubt it will beat PS2 sales, but PSP? It's not like it's sold bazillion of units. It wasn't until three months ago that it started doing good numbers.

Wii is the console that will rule the home systems in Japan for the next five years. How can you doubt it will overtake PSP sales?
 
Lobster said:
Yup it definitely would be safe to so 500k for Japan and America and 600k worldwide.

I don't know why it did so bad in Europe though..I thought maybe, like Resident Evil 4, it would've been its strongest market.
No release in Germany and from my personal experience it was hard to obtain a copy over the internet in either Austria or UK at launch that wasn't ridiciously overpriced. Case of missed opportunity - then again I wouldn't have expected this to sell as well as a main-line RE here. Imho it did OK for what it is.

AniHawk said:
So Galaxy's already beaten SMS... should have strong enough legs to take it to 1m in MC's numbers
Quite a few people doubted that. I must admit after second and third week numbers I had my doubts as well - glad I've been proven wrong.
 
PSP is not a gaming device in Japan. At least this is not the main reason why people buy it.

Wii Software salles are MUCH better than the PSP sales. Wii sw sales are better than any other system but DS in Japan.
 
I think the PSP is a viable gaming platform if there would be more interesting projects but I think developers have run out of ideas for the Playstation 2 architecture.

This is wrong on so many levels. More like they ran away from PSP's crappy software sales.
 
The PSP could probably just about hit 15 million LTD in Japan if people keep buying the thing like they have the last 3 months. It wouldn't be bad if they bought software either.

I still think the Wii could do 20m LTD there.

This kind of makes me wonder; if the PSP wasn't rampant with the piracy problems it has at the moment, would the sales of the machine still be as ludicrously high as they are now? After all, many people must consider it a one-off payment console that lets you play "free" games on it...

Check what the ratio was like in April, May. Maybe your glass can be half-full then.

0_o It's an all-Nintendo (system) top 10...I guess SMG really is on track to go past a million. M&S might go past 700K? Mario Party DS seems like it will easily clear 2M at this point.

And it's good to see that RE:UC is at 234K. Should definitely pass the 600K WW figure (I think that was Capcom's original projection for it).

Wow, awesome sales all round. And an all-Nintendo platform top 10 again! Haven't had one of those in a while. Maybe.

EDIT: What the hell at Mario Kart DS at #8?!
