Good start for Final Porting Tactics. Square Enix is the only one third making serious money this gen in Japan (and surely, worlwide).
BTW, impressed by the legs of the Wii games. Shows that the system is hot and that these brands are powerful in Japan right now. I can wait to see what´s coming from Nintendo. They have been keeping the news for too long. It´s about time Nintendo!
Wait... damm! Where´s One Piece Unlimited!? Looked so cool... | (
Looks like it'll make it to 1 mil... but at this rate it might be a bit of a limp across the finish line, rather than a glorious sprint. Still, better sales overall than I would have expected before it was released. Ninty has to be pleased with YI.
SPM was around 90k, wasn't it?
I noticed that a few DS games have gone really high. Cooking Navi and stuff. I reckong low Wii shipment this week, so all Wii games are lower. Thats why WWSM isn't higher.
The only thing that bugs me about this week's numbers is that goddamned FF1 port even making the list. Overpriced rehashes of games that everyone has already played are NOT COOL, Square-Enix. NOT COOL.
If it was a new game I'd be cool with it, but Jesus Christ, that shit should not be making money.
In response to somebody's 50k for Wii, that seems a bit low. I'll expect it to stay around 72k (+/- 10k) until the next set of big releases comes out (fall). That being said, the Wii is destined to return to the earthly plane after holding so many units back for the holidays, so a small number like 54k would not be completely unexpected.
If you look at the following, it's pretty clear that the Wii is both reliant on shipments AND on a cyclical pattern of sales that holds between 55-78k. Going by the pattern, this week should be a low week. The debate is deciding how far down it will go.
I said 77k for my official estimation last week, and in the interest of integrity, I'll stick with that...although my gut is telling me it's a bit lower after seeing the slow software overall (58k?).
