Yep, certainly looks like it. It's not like PSP hasn't had a huge boost to take it just into the lead, though, and the race was close enough before the spikes anyway.

Rapping Granny said:
Yo guys, Sony should just can the PSP rite? rite ? derp herp.
Weeellll... hardware sales driven entirely by a single game, no other games in the top 20, even at this time of year, sales across the world abysmal...

I think there's an argument for supporting the PSP in Japan for a while yet, but I don't think it's as rosy as it appears from this week's HW sales, to be honest.

Give me a break. It's worse than Black / White.
Well, the last "big" psp game was released more than a month ago (Tactics Ogre, and wasn't even that big) and psp doesn't have games that usually get a boost on the holidays. Also the cut off is pretty high.

So the PSP will be the best selling console in Japan this year ?


Nintendo should get Monster Hunter's exclusive for the 3DS so this joke stops.

Possibly - depends on how the DS holds up next week, and how much further the PSP drops.

But it also proves that PSP hw sales right now are only Monster Hunter driven.

Not that calendar year winners really mean anything if the fabled MOMENTUM is there for SCE.

Either way, pretty amazing to see such an evenly pegged race for 2010.

Chris1964 said:

Yup. Many of them are obviously repurchases too. Not that this doesn't affect the DS either.

The game was restocked yesterday (Wednesday) at major shops. The Yodobashi in Shinjuku West received at least 1000 copies yesterday, but I couldn't go back and check to see if it was sold out.

Looking at previous HW number PS3 will be the big looser this December, taking the place of PSP at 2009.

Ni no Kuni better have a 100k+ second week.

If anything, Donkey Kong Returns is more likely to exceed 100K again than Ni no Kuni. In fact, I think DKR's momentum will build up like Mario Sports Mix has.

Fun fact from Famitsu commenting GT5 opening week numbers 2 weeks ago:

''Low numbers for GT5 but legs at holidays are expected.
Mario Sports Mix has low sell-through, good legs are not expected''

These guys must live at a different world.

What joke? The series was born in PS2 and reached its actual level of popularity on PSP. When Sony decided to release an expensive handheld with online and PS2-lite capabilities, they made possible something as Monster Hunter to happen, so again I ask, what joke?

Chris1964 said:

Sorry Chris, but I don't understand that, what's wrong about that? It's one of the biggest games this year, is only normal it drives hardware.

Spiegel said:
Also Chris, I think you can cross Shiren 5 out from that "big releases" list you made.


:p
I've been saying that since forever...

Ninokuni did even worse than I had expected. I didn't think it will hit a million, but at least hope it'll hit 500,000.

Slightly steeper decline for Tales of Graces F than Tales of Vesperia PS3.

MHP3 seems to be holding well - will be interesting to see shipment numbers, considering that it's still not regularly stocked on Amazon.co.jp...

I'm waiting for the punchline.

Seems like that could be a worldwide theme, pending any info on HW from Europe...
PS3 is doing more then fine in Europe, when the worldwide Q3 shipment numbers come out the PS3 should be fairly flat compared to last years Q3.
 
#43
Cosmonaut X said:

Yes.

Every year, Nintendo has some game that take a backseat to whatever other big hit they're advertising, yet that secondary game ends up doing some surprising numbers.

Last year, it was Poke Park Wii.

Nothing really bad, just further confirmation that huge software releases at a system take the air from the rest software.

But its YTD is already above that from last year.
And it will end below 2009 when the year ends. The comment was for December.

Cosmonaut X said:

I dont think that it is that relevant in Japan due to the release of FFXIII last December which boosted the PS3 hardware sales a lot.

Out of curiousity, were there any PSP games that were expected to sell more, but that got over-shadowed by the release of MHP3?

Wow at Ninokuni, Hino have you tactically misread the market this time?! :D Can't wait to see how this turns out.
He grossly overestimated demand for the latest Inazuma 11 titles.
I think Level 5's "rise to heaven" phase might be over.
