3DS was doing better numbers than the Vita did the week of the price drop and seeing past performances of similar games I don't think that the price drop mattered that much.

SK release week - 3DS sold 68k
SK:Burst release week - 3DS sold 68k again
That shows Vita's audience is more receptive to an SK game. Everything else staying the same, the next SK should be a multiplatform release.

SS: <30k

PSV: I think it will hold well, there are games coming for the next few weeks, plus impact of games, bundles, color and price cut from past two weeks.

Not really a surprising week.
Vita 30K
SS 20K

Seems reasonable to me.

MC answered back.

As most guessed, the 22,050 number for Soul Sacrifice Double Package has not been multiplied by 2.
That makes the SS sales even better. Looks like Sony has finally found themselves a handheld IP in Japan. I haven't heard a single bad thing abut the game so hopefully the word of mouth will be strong.

You really don't think SRWUX and it's ultra sexy 3DSLL will get 3DS sales higher than 50k?

They make the sales look... the same. Everybody was already counting on it being not multiplied by 2.

I think SS will be down to like 40k tomorrow, let's see!!

I know many people in this thread weren't. I think 50-60k could be achieved and it would be a massive good sign.

As Chris pointed out, those numbers are gonna be WAY off.

Edit: I think these are more reasonable.

Soul Sacrifice: 40k
Vita: 35k
3DS: 66k
PS3: 18k
Wii U: 9k

I guess when you don't have any new games ...

If they released Earthbound on U.S. Wii U as part of this pseudo-Ambassador bonus, there would be people who would pony up the $300 to buy the system just to play that $0.30 game.

Taking about soul sacrifice, how many units does it need to sell to:

(A) be considered a successful new IP
(B) guarantee a sequel.

Thanks.

So, as an anecdote, went to try to buy Luigi's Mansion at about 3:30, Geo, Aeon and Yamada were out of physical copies. Geo and Yamada Denki had a few download cards left (3-5), but I wanted a cartridge. Had to go to Best, got their 3rd last copy.

Maybe it'll open well/better than expected? Anyone heard anything?

Ooo! How exciting. Everything looks towards a really confident release. Cannot wait till the numbers come out.

Was anything released/announced this week that would stop Wii U falling under 9K?

I'd be surprised at anything less than a 70% drop for Soul Sacrifice.

Last week (for tonights numbers)? Then, no. This week has NFS: Most Wanted (lol) and Mother 2 (lol). Next week has Game & Wario (lol) and the Dragon Quest X port (lol).

Have we had any hints at a shipment number?
I have no idea, but I would be interested in finding this out.

A Super Famicom rom could be a decisive factor for those who are undecided about purchasing a Wii U.

In regards to Soul Sacrifice second week, a 70% drop would be a good result.

Second week sales for "big" PS Vita releases:

[PSV] Persona 4 Golden <RPG> (Atlus) {2012.06.14} (¥7.329) - 18.069 / 170.568 (-88%)
[PSV] Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f # <ACT> (Sega) {2012.08.30} (¥7.329) - 16.807 / 174.816 (-89%)
[PSV] Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus: Otome Shoujotachi no Shoumei # <ACT> (Marvelous AQL) {2013.02.28} (¥6.980) - 15.023 / 106.662 (-84%)

They are actually making a big deal out of this release, and Itoi seems to be involved a lot. Nintendo is probably cooking something for that franchise.
I did read someone state they'd heard that Nintendo was working on a new Mother game, but it's probably more wishful thinking than Diddy Kong Racing by Monster.
