I wonder what's Namco doing with GE2 - are they waiting for Capcom annoucement ?

The longer they wait they worse situation get's for them imho.

Well yeah - releasing it before golden week would be optimal since it would be biggest PSP/PSV release for that period but Capcom might also want to release MH4 then.

Releasing a week or two before would be bad as MH4 would kill legs on GE2
Releasing on same week = suicide
Releasing a week or two later - still bad

I'd imagine GE2 coming out around June surely?

Unless I am missing it that is missing Dragon's Crown, Mind Zero, and not sure if it was dated but FFX and FFX-2?
We know about DC and FFX, FFX-2 since yesterday - i think we need to give people some time to update such lists :D

Anyway - release schedule for Q2 is filling itself nicely - and i think i read here few weeks ago that march was supposed to be last chance for Vita and after that it will be wasteland with no releases :D

March was the last of significant releases; with the exception of GE2. I don't think that release schedule is much to crow about, but at least there's games coming I guess.

Vita sold out in all but two models in the local Yodobashi (this store has the largest stock of games in the local area).

could this be another week of Vita > 3DS?
if so, I'd say that the revival of Vita would definitly successfull

Anecdotal of course, but my local place was completely sold out of Vita units. There were still copies of One Piece Musou 2 for the PS3, but I grabbed the last Vita copy.

Plenty of Super Robot Wars, and they finally got a Sword Art Online restock. Very curious as to how the latter sells.

EDIT: Plenty of copies of Luigi's Mansion too.

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%)
Good result is a very relative thing, isn´t it?

What about KH1.5? That game seems to have been forgotten around here even though the Japanese will (usually) lap up anything KH even if it is a port/remake.

Where are the new numbers already? They're usually up by now!


EDIT: I didn't think of the moving forward an hour. Happened while I was overseas.

Media Create numbers are certainly delayed: there was a note in the last chart posted by 4gamer about this. But Famitsu? I don't think so, since the retail magazine is coming out regularly.

2nd week drop rate has very little to do with being a good result or not. If a game sells 100k in its first week, or uses 10 weeks to sell 100k, it is the final result that matters. Technically it is best to sell all copies at day 1, because then you get the money in quicker.

I would be happy if PS Vita sell around 30k units this week and around 50k next week with Pirate Warriors 2 on stores.

In fact, if PS Vita sell over 25k every week, I would be really happy.
