Sell-through:

[WII] Kirby's Epic Yarn
~40% (Dengeki - 235k shipped first week)

[PSP] Lord of Arcana
~55% (Dengeki - 134k shipped first week)
48.07% (Media-Create - 145k shipped first week)
I'd think the sell-through % would be more of an issue for Lord of Arcana than it would be for Kirby.

PS3 sales are up because of major price cuts, and continued developer support, despite low sales for the first ~3 years.

Wii sales have dried up because no one aside from Nintendo is making anything for it.

It really isn't that hard to understand.

I get that, but a jump of 3-4k isn't likely wow if the system that is jumping has no new releases for that week.

Of course, some retailers said that the first day sales were good but it completely colapsed after that.

The game looked awful in trailers and it's getting a lot of bad reviews from consumers. I doubt it'll sell the first shipment.

How is Level-5 able to ship over a million copies of Inazuma Eleven 3 when it hit the bargain bins relatively? Did retailers not know of a third version in advance?

Disappointing opening for Kirby, but I expect strong legs. Is there any reason Peace Walker is back on the charts again? It's been hovering around 21-50 for a while now. Impressive legs.

MGS:pW has never left the top 50. I'm guessing that the combination of good word of mouth, coop and retailer discounts (first shipment was huge and it might have not sold it yet) is what is keeping it in the charts.

It's not that surprising though, Portable OPS+ had some great legs too.

i think the 25th anniversary stuff will be a good test if there is any potential left in the wii market

the whole campaign is sooo designed to make people nostalgic. especially the wii collection is just crying "this is for you the mario nostalgic".

and up until now that has always worked to spur sales for nintendo.

if this campaign fails i dont see any chances for them regaining the japanese market (small bump for dqx maybe)

So what to predict from next week releases?
duckroll said:
So, what titles are worth predicting for next week? God Eater Burst (both Append and Regular) should be a lock, along with Winning Eleven 2011 PS3 and Golden Sun DS. Should we also include Solatorobo and Chris1964's favorite upcoming game Zack and Ombra? What about stuff like Dream Club Portable and Winning Eleven 2011 360?
First three for sure (God Eater combined, I doubt we'll get separate data). Solatorobo as well but WE 360 doesn't do any hot (and this year even less since there was world cup we). Zack and Ombra...no, just no, its #83 in amazon ds-only top100. Fable 3 and Dream Club not sure myself.

It's really a shame about the Okami franchise.
After Okamiden's first week, I had some hope, but that was quickly swept aside.

Re:coded is 42% off at amazon (price collapse at retailers too?) and PS3 Vanquish 25% (but I think this has more to do with the very high price).

Maybe Donkey Kong Country Returns doesn't come out this December in Japan.
The next retailer meeting, if there is another one this year, should be at mid-late November and Wii has already 2 platformers for the holiday season. Since the big push will be Mario 25th anniversary, The Last Story that comes out at January is dated and there isn't the very big title to keep Wii sales up at early 2011 Nintendo might decided to split game releases.

A bit incredible to believe, but retailer blogs are reporting that sony is out of stock of the stand-alone MOVE unit.

Also it seems the majority of retailers are reporting sales better then expected(of course most of them expected around 0, so it isn't saying much

All of them should make top 20. You decide.

It looks that Mario has big supply problems.

It was expected. Nintendo probably knew it as well and it is possible that they create shortages to increase the hype.

PSPGo gets a 10,000 yen price drop this week :lol Now it cost the same as the PSP-3000 unit (16,800 yen).

Now it won't be so ridiculous to think that PSP2 can cost <25000Y at launch

Maybe he'll talk about how they're going to save the Wii with an early Zelda release or will he pull Wii relax out of his hat? He can't go out there and say: "Hey guys, remember when broke like every record? Well... 3DS is delayed and Wii is turning into a second GameCube at this point, kinda funny how that works right!"

35 days to go and MHP3 has almost the same number of points on comgnet than Pokemon B&W had on release day (3329 VS 3405).

MHP2 and 2G had huge numbers on that website too (final counts were 2561 and 2568 respectively) so we shouldn't expect one first week that huge but it seem impossible for the game to sell <1,5M first week.

Let's see if it can beat the highest one in the ranking.
Name - Points - First Week Sales
Dragon Quest VIII - 4285 p - 2.23M
Final Fantasy XII - 3510 p - 1.84M
Pokemon Black & White - 3405 p - 2.63M
Monster Hunter Portable 3 - 3329 p
Final Fantasy X-2 - 3285 p - 1.47M
Dragon Quest IX - 2917 p - 2.34M
Monster Hunter Portable 2G - 2568 p - 0.82M
Monster Hunter Portable 2 - 2561 p - 0.74M
Final Fantasy XIII - 2201 p - 1.51M
Reminder : As everyone can see in that list, having a huge number of points doesn't guarantee having the biggest number of sales

Comgnet stopped receiving Black/White preorders the final week. In fact preorders decreased for that week. The number would be way bigger if there was the supply.

Either way comgnet comgnet has been proved wrong too many times.

Well, there's nothing wrong with sharing comgnet numbers. Everyone knows what they are and I've put a reminder in my post

If I remember correctly you provided updates on the number of preorders for B&W, didn't you?

MHP3 is a big game and it'll be interesting to see how high can go in the first week compared to other big games.

So in a bit of a confusing news in the Castlevania bundle value ps3 pack, Konami is bundling in MSG4 Best edition.

Point I want to ask is, based on the x-box value packs and such, will this count towards MGS4's life total?

Not really. That's the reason I stopped posting them.

Konami must be very desperate with Castlevania since they include MGS4 in the bundle.

When 2 games are bundled together they are usually tracked as different SKU.

That's an example

Capcom Vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium 2001 / SFIII 3rd Strike [Value Pack]
