For the people who aren't regulars in Media Create threads:

What is Tsutaya?
Tsutaya is a major retailer with 1,440 retail stores (612 that sell new games) all across Japan.

What is Comgnet?
Comgnet is the website for the retailer "COMG!" that has 17 retail stores across the Niigata Prefecture in Japan.

Why post these rankings?
They are released three days before Media Create + Famitsu + Dengeki give us nationwide sales, so we get a general indication of how well the games will perform relative to their competition.

How accurate is Tsutaya compared to nationwide retail tracking services?
It's large enough that it gives a very probable indication of future sales rankings, but it's not large enough to be definitive.

How accurate were Tsutaya's rankings last week?

So, The game that is currently impossible to find is Disney Magic Castle.
Attack on Titan is still very difficult to find
Kirby seems to face some problems in some shops
Zelda and FFX are starting to normalize, but still some shops have problems (no problem for PS3 version)

Seems that FF helped the Vita a lot. But I wonder what the next big Vita game could be?
If for big you're thinking about a 200k seller or so, there is Project Diva F 2 and Soul Sacrifice Delta in march, and Sword Art Online in April.

If by big you are meaning a game that can sell +400k units, there is only Phantasy Star Nova. But I think we'll get Toukiden 1.5 this year, if the hunting genre patern is anything to go buy.

Do we know if Freedom Wars has any hype in Japan?

Freedom Wars is a bit hard to predict, but it could go over pretty well considering they're pimping that its from the developers of God Eater, and it certainly looks like the most fast paced and action packed monster hunting style that God Eater is known for. It also has spiderman-grappling style movement, which is very popular in Japan due to Attack on Titan right now.

I'll be kinda surprised if it doesn't do at least as well as Soul Sacrifice or better though.

Since F 2nd is launching on both PS3 and Vita simultaneously (a first for the series), I don't think it'll be a 200k seller for the Vita, as the PS3 version will cannibalize some of those potential sales.

It's not surprising that retailers couldn't meet demand for Disney Magic Castle, its sales showed a very strong week-on-week growth in December. That's not unusual for evergreen titles but we also have to take into account that Disney Magic Castle is not a big game or a first-party release so producing more carts wasn't a top priority xD

30./28. [3DS] Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life # <ETC> (Bandai Namco Games) {2013.08.01} (¥5.480) - 6.897 / 324.959 <80-100%> (+40%)

You know, there's one thing I am really NOT looking forward, it's sales data for Senran Kagura 2. Well, not the data itself, but the console warriors fighting over them. "SK2 didn't sell enough, it should have been on Vita!!" "SK2 did even better than SV, that's proof SV only did good because of the Vita price drop!!!" Etc...

By the way, we don't have any shipment info on Kirby, right? Personally, I'm betting on 100k-150k opening, doesn't look like the shipment was real big...

@BrunoMB : wow, that's quite the increase!

I think we all expect Attack on Titans to do decently (100K or so) based on the popularity of the anime/manga. However, it blows my mind that it is selling 200K with sever stock issue and still outselling One Piece Unlimited Red.

I don't know if this was posted here or not. Siliconera has the full sales figure + shipment percentage of FF X/X-2 sales on VITA.

As per the article, the total stands as(Media Create Numbers, Two week sales) :

Final Fantasy X/X-2 PS3 = 225,448 units sold, 95.52% of its shipment
Final Fantasy X/X-2 Twin Pack VITA = 182,170 copies, 97.26% of its shipment

They also got the individual sales for each game on VITA.

Final Fantasy X = 31,775, 97.26% of its shipment
Final Fantasy X-2 = 16,355, 84.12% of its shipment

Numbers are pretty impressive to me. Especially on the VITA.

The Vita sales aren't anything to write home about, whats impressive is the combined number with PS3 and the fact that the games are sold out. At the same time, many games are facing shortages so that is more an indication of retailers misjudging demand rather than the game being super popular.

With the 3 SKU combined yes, and the difference should be even bigger with digital numbers.
Not really. To both of those points.
Given that two of the SKU's are simply half the package each you should, at best, count the one with higher sales only. Implying that Vita digital sales are higher than PS3s for this particular game with no data to go on.

LTD or first week for X-2 is wrong and I find hard to believe X/X-2 Twin Pack and X have exactly the same sellthrough. The source is legit but there are errors in the article.

Kinda jump on this one yes, fair point

Actually I'd say it's the opposite.
Sure there's no definitive data (we're still waiting for the Famitsu Download chart of December) but there were words of the Vita's game being OOS earlier than the PS3 version and we do know it had a higher sellthrough.
Combined with the fact that Vita has a higher digital ratio of sales it's highly unlikely that the PS3 digital version sold more than the Vita one.

Still no date for the Famitsu DDL chart btw ?

There's also information for Zelda sellthrough, also seems legit and coming from the same source (Siliconera):

First Week:
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds - 224,142 <83,47%> of its shipment

Second Week Accomulated:
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds - 297,215 <96,84%> of its shipment

So, maybe I edit Week 52 and I add Zelda and FFX selltrhough.
Maybe FFX standalone edition number could be added in this Week Media Create Top 50 too. What you think?

By the way, we don't have any shipment info on Kirby, right? Personally, I'm betting on 100k-150k opening, doesn't look like the shipment was real big...
Well, Azalyn said the Kirby's shipment was almost the same than Zelda. But I don't know if we can extrapolate it.

Thank you very much for the infos.
Can you say me what are the prices of games like nsmb2 or dk 3ds? IS it true that Yamada denki are the cheapest??
Yamada Denki has Nintendo First Party games for less than 4.000 yen. I believe is a very Nintendo focused shop.

Yep, that's true. I didn't remember they were releasing both versions at the same time.

Phantasy Star Nova will hurt really bad when neither SEGA itself nor Atlus publish it in the West.
I hope Atlus USA do the work. I mean, SEGA now has a brand now that makes money localizing niche stuff. If they have benefits releasing stuff like Conception II, why not Yakuza/Phantasy Star?

And then they'll bring the game to Europe in less than 9 months...
