So I keep wondering, why is Capcom making an enhanced release of Gaist Crusher again? The original sold horribly and I don't think the anime was successful either. Why pour more cash into this failed project at this point?

10. [WIU] New Super Mario Bros. U (Nintendo) {2012-12-08} - 622,502 / 1,120,680
I blame it on the deadbeat systems aka Vita and WiiU. Normally the new systems would be performing better than those two. Well at least this year there is a chance WiiU and Vita will see an YoY increase. Question is can the PS4, Vita and WiiU negate and overcome the PS3 and 3DS's decline. Hardware wise there is very likely to be an increase due to PS4's entrance.

There's a lot of money to be made if it becomes a success, I think it's worth another try.

Gaist Crusher (game) looks horrible and boring though. Level-5 games are at the very least enjoyable.

Has Taiko for 3DS stopped selling or something?
Best on DS
(24/08/2008) Taiko no Tatsujin : 7tsu no Shima no Daibouken - 693,194
(26/04/2007) Taiko no Tatsujin : Touch de Dokodon - 641,229

Best on 3DS
(12/07/2012) Taiko no Tatsujin : Chibi Dragon to Fushigina Orb - 548,998


maybe next title will be sell better, but the first entry to the platform (Chibi Dragon) did worst compared to DS one (Touch de Dokodon)


another point : the brand is going down as it happened back in the day on PS2, both home and handheld versions had their spike on DS and Wii and now the sales are decreasing

That's honestly a fairly minor drop all things considered. Being as there is no other Taiko game out there on the 3DS, it may eventually get up into the 600K range.


Also is it kind of sad that a paid MGS demo is basically outselling a completely new Yakuza game (even tho it's not a mainline Yakuza)

you sure?

new Mario? less on 3DS
Nintendogs? less on 3DS
Mario Kart? less on 3DS
Layton? less on 3DS
IE ? less on 3DS
Zelda? less on 3DS
Taiko? less on 3DS
Ace Attorney? less on 3DS
Tomodachi Collection ? less on 3DS
Yeah, there are games which sold aka the same amount or better than the ds version. I haven't numbers here in my head but they exist (fire emblem or set by example). From what you cited, there are olden in it's as if, Layton and aa. I like them a lot but I find 6 iterations too much. Tomodachi collection is because a lot who bought the ds version were disappointed and a lot don't know that the 3ds version has tons of enhancements. Also they can say "oh I spent tons of hours on the first one, I'm fed up" Taiko 3ds sold very well. New Mario and nintendogs : it's nintendo 's fault (not a lot efforts have been made on these two). Zelda, seems japs prefer stylet/cells having combo lol. Mario Kart 7: a lot of people don' t want to play anymore on portable because it kills your R button lol

Well I found an unexpected fact today.

Did you know that Game Republic had a hand in Spectrobes Origins for Wii (which was developed by Genki)? I sure as hell didn't. o_O

I saw the credits, and I swear like 20 companies had their name in it, jeez.

Which is why PS4 needs to smash, seriously where's the support from Japanese third-parties? To think the next Tales Of is a PS3 exclusive... :(
This is good news.
I don't want a PS4 yet.

Even if it's not PS4, at least the console fanbase/games are somewhere (PS3).

Read again what chris said. Taiko for 3DS hasn't stopped selling yet. Still appears in the top 50 sometimes. There's no doubt it will surpass the 600k mark, and then it will eventually get closer to the best ds version.

Re: Earlier discussion about the 3DS hardware bump

Media-Create says that 16k units are from the 3 Love+ bundles.

It seems like those weren't that limited after all.

of course it will have great leg. Its' free!

Is this another dream scenario where Nintendo buys SE so that DQ XI will be on WiiU?
Which other senario are you referring to?

The people who said Japanese people were doing the upgrade program for DW8 have some egg on their face.
Takes total sales (Including March and using Dengeki sales) to around 32k ish.

Not great for DW. But then again it has already sold ~130k on PS3/PSV so takes total sales to over 160k which is the same as what DW7XL sold on PS3 couple of years back.
 
Dragon Quest Monsters: Super Light seems to have started the event cycle.

For those who are unaware, basically social mobile games run "events" every couple of weeks that encourage people to go spend a bunch gems in order to get time limited items/cards/etc and have some special gameplay events like high reward PvP tournaments or high reward dungeons.

These events are what cause most of the fluctuation in the top 10-20 apps, which is a relatively stable set of games that frequently trade positions.

The game is currently the #6th highest grossing app on both iOS and Android in Japan. I've included historical charts below so the fluctuation events cause can be seen.

Hm interesting. Out of curiosity, is the game making its money entirely out of ads? Or does it have lots of microtransactions (thus what you mention about "buying" above is with real money)?

Do we know if these numbers include the upgrade program? Not just for this game, but for other games that also have or had an upgrade program.

Yeah the reason I tend to be a bit harsher on the 3DS than I would otherwise be is because as it stands it's honestly the last hope remaining, hahaha.
the 3ds is like the last samurai, they should make an anime aboot this shiz.

I've come to the conclusion that Comgnet and T are useless well other than seeing the vague placements of titles. I mean the points system is so inconsistent it would be more helpful if that was omitted.

I know this has been asked to death, but can someone explain the points system?

Theres no point in explaining something that is so inconsistent, let alone using it as a scale.

I mean WW HD had 56 pt which led 30k sales
Didn't MGSV GZ have around the same and it had 3 times the sales.

Comg is a chain of store and the point system represent one pre-order at their store. It doesn't really allow to predict anything correctly (certain games get more preorders than others due to the demographic they target) but it can give an appreciation of how a game will do.
