Just like Dragon quest hero and it boosted ps4 for many weeks
Because it had a limited edition PS4.
Thanks Takao for reporting it!

I'm...quite surprised that SSB 3DS sold less digital copies than SSB Wii U
Wii U seems to have a userbase that isn't as averse to digital titles as much vs the more mainstream 3DS user base.

PREDICTION LEAGUE APRIL 2015

Predict how much these titles will sell in the month (from Mar 30 to Apr 26):
[PS4] Hardware (28 days) -
[PS3+PSV] Super Robot Wars Z III Tengoku Hen (25 days) -
[3DS] Xenoblade Chronicles (25 days) -
[3DS] Bravely Second (4 days) -
[PS4] Hyperdimension Neptunia V II (4 days) -​

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: April 1st 2015 09:00 am (EST)



Attention:
  • Remember for some games it's not only the 1st week.
  • Multiplatform games are the combined available sales of each platform

Rules:
  • Do not edit your post after the deadline. If you do, you'll be disqualified.
  • The official monthly hardware sales will be the sum of weekly numbers for all versions of the system available from Famitsu.
  • The official monthly software sales will be the latest total or the sum of the weekly numbers if the title is release before the period available from the Famitsu Top 30.
  • The official monthly sales for multi-platform releases will be the combined available sales of each platform shown in the title entry.
  • The official monthly sales for games with multiple versions will be the combined available sales of each version shown in the title entry.
  • Any game missing in the Famitsu top 30 will be taken out of the predictions.

PS4 hardware is because people were discussing much it'll fall now that it has no games again.

In the land of mobile and handhelds, 100k is alright. Can't all be like Hino, making million sellers as a past time and running them into the ground in a way which would make Rock Band and Guitar Hero blush. :')
/Hino mode on


excuse sir, which is the game which hit the ground you are talking 'bout ? Might be some yellow pocket-sized electric puppet ?


/Hino mode off

I know NIS were only joking around when they initially said they would be in trouble if D5 didn't sell, but...... this still isn't looking good.

Being really honest here, people would be naive to think NIS won't port Disgaea 5 to another platform. It's going to bomb in Japan and it won't make up for it in the West, they might make a Vita port after all, or even a PC port.

They'll need to... Sad seeing companies fall so slow. :(

I'll probably end up buying D5 when it comes to the west. At least that is one additional sale.

I don't understand why they would want to limit their audience, I would get it if they bring it to PC one day.

I don't understand why they would want to limit their audience, I would get it if they bring it to PC one day.
But do they need the PC? I mean sure its an additional platform with an additional player base, but from what I understand, the PS3 than later Vita ultimate edition does well for them. The issue this time around is that they skipped the PS3. For instance, looking back it seems the first week sales of Disgaea 4 on PS3 in Japan was around 80k with Vita around 30k first week. I think the LTD for the PS3 version was 130k in Japan and not sure about the Vita release. Further, I do not know how the games are doing in the west.

I mean it looks like for company NIS's size, those sales are enough to keep going. Again, what seems to be the issue here is that they are skipping PS3 and supposedly skipping Vita (I think the comment was they would need the next Playstation handheld). I am not sure the fanbase in the West is large enough that it was worth skipping out on PS3 and the inevitable Vita port. And if that is the case, perhaps supporting the PC as well is too much for them?

I don't believe NIS is doing well. Granted I am not up to date on their financials.
From the below article, it looks like they are doing fine, that the 150k sales was a self deprecating joke from the producer. Essentially, the studio is committed to 150k sales and if that does happen, the producer said he might need to leave the industry.

Financials aside (they seem to slip in and out of profitability) the company itself just isn't doing well in general. There was a massive staff exodus back in 2013 including much of the core Disgaea team. There were also rumors about a lot of business shenanigans which painted the company in really poor light. Since then their output has dropped considerably and Disgaea 5 looks to be their first major test to see if they can find success with the brand name alone. If it fails, maybe the company has no future.

Thanks for clarifying. I knew about the exodus but was unsure of the level it might effect them.

It's really sad, the industry definitely needs companies like NIS, I hope they adapt.

If the rumors about why the staff left are true, then I do not think the industry needs companies like NIS at all.
