Makes you wonder how much $$$ Capcom is making from online subscriptions
Lets say from the 920000:

20% don't go online = 184000
10% finish the game within the 1 month free trial = 92000
For the rest of the 70% , a month subscription will be $6 million already. Ok minus 1 million for maintenance cost = $5million still....$_$

Tomodachi's legs are incredible. Looks like its gonna push through to 2 million.



I don't think they are.
They aren't forgetting? Then without adequate information you can't really say its an out and out disappointment. if it has 150k DLs then that makes it a lote more respectable in the sales count(except that console Gts sell truckloads more than that).

Very frankly, when it comes to Japan and downloads, don't keep your hopes high. It only hurts more.

so how is SMT compared to other releases?
Comparing the Media Create numbers to other Media Create numbers:

Code:
Persona 4	193,000
Persona 3	117,000
SMT: SJ		97,000
Persona 3 Fes	90,000
Raidou 2	88,000
Persona		79,000
EO2		69,000
Raidou		64,000
Devil Survivor	55,000
EO1		33,000
I just used the GAF archive, which only goes back to 2005. I don't feel like looking up the pre-2005 Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga first week numbers.

Love the high sales of Inazuma but 800K? Is the 1st one a million-seller?
Not even close to that, no. But at the 2009 Vision event, Akihiro Hino said that he wanted the second game to do considerably more than what the first game did, with expectations of 800,000 to a million units sold. I would assume this is based on increased brand awareness, stronger advertising, and the dual-SKU release, but really, I can only speculate as to what makes him think the goal is achievable.

But... given that the sequel has outsold the first game's lifetime sales in its second week, though, and given how successful Level-5 has been at cultivating sales successes so far... who knows. Maybe it is achievable. Though I think he's likely to see the game fall just slightly short of that goal. 700k seems more doable.

I'd be amazed if the online take up was anywhere near 70%.

Tomodachi collection has amazing legs i must say! Only a 7% drop from last week, which is a very small drop compared to what other games might drop. And it still sells many copies on a weekly basis eventhough that it is many weeks since the game was released. Wii Sports Resort also holds up pretty nicely with only a 10% drop, very nice legs :)

Monster Hunter 3 Wii also seems to have some nice legs. With the upcoming holiday season, i guess that MH3 wont have any big problems of selling over 1 million copies (LTD number) :)

That's practically WoW type numbers. :D

Hahahaha, so you think DD sales almost match retail sales?

Thank you, I was feeling too drunk/lazy to do it. I figured someone would know offhand.

Not bad numbers at all.

Why are some of the LTD numbers broken? Sure DDS and DDS2 did not sell their entire LTD in the first week, and DevSur and Persona PSP have both broken 100k.

These are all the numbers we have from m-create. Media Create started providing yearly top500 after 2006. For the years before that it's top 10 and leaked numbers.

EDIT: And the 2009 numbers are also what we got from top 10 until now. When 2009 top500 comes out we will have the clear picture.

Oh I see, thanks. I guess Persona and DevSur aren't updated because we're waiting for the top500 for 2009 to come out first right?

The big delay of the famitsu leak at 2ch the last 2 weeks is very annoying. At least we got the famitsu hardware numbers. The drill blog (m-create estimate) has Wii and PS3 both at 30K.

I have started to update and the famitsu database I have. The ammount of data is huge (1995-today) and makes the m-create one look very small in front of it. I hope by the time I post the new m-create file next year (when we get the top 500) I will also have ready and the famitsu. That's not a promise, since I don't have the free time to deal seriously with it, but I'll try it.

Did I miss the full Famitsu leak? Did a quick, dirty edit just in case it was posted (so you can ignore it) or not (so it gets proper formatting).
