I expected much better for Bloodborne in Japan, then again i really shouldn't have. Atleast it will sell loads in the west.

I expected better of Bloodborne, but I suppose it's worth taking note that there were apparent shortages in stock. Hopefully it'll have legs.

So NIS was betting the farm on Disgaea 5 and they chose to release it along side some of the hottest IPs in gaming let alone Japan.

good call

Good for Blabo and PS4 and just about anything not named Disgaea 5. What a bomb :(

They're probably working on downgrading it for PS3/Vita as we speak.

Bloodborne sales are good.

Sword Art Online is even better.

In other news, Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is coming to PSV/PS3/PS4.



April Fools possibly since no way it is on PSV

It's also on a much smaller install base, although there's not a direct correlation there.

PS4 had a pretty good month in Japan. And probably an even better one everywhere else.

Happy that Bloodborne is selling well. Phenomenal game.

Are there any reviews out there of Disgaea 5?

Bloodborne sales are good.

Yeah that has to be april fools lol. Pretty soon for sequel talk, even though it wouldn't shock me in the least.

...Which of these would be among the hottest IPs in gaming from a worldwide perspective? I guess if we're really generous, Dragon Quest at ~4.5-5 million tops?
This is a thread about Japan sales, was a Japanese perspective

Bloodborne, I said got dayum.

Come on Japanese devs, March is proof enough that if you release PS4 games the PS4 will do well, it's time to start shifting from PS3

RIP Eyesight. there's a lone 3DS game in there.
except Dragon quest.
Actually there are two 3DS games in the top 16.
You are missing too many 3ds games..
04./00. [3DS] Theatrhythm Dragon Quest <ACT> (Square Enix) - 76.858 / NEW

11./00. [3DS] Kuroko's Basketball: Ties to Future <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) - 35.415 / NEW

16./09. [WIU] Mario Party 10 <ETC> (Nintendo) - 17.433 / 89.078

???
I'm guessing he meant 16 of the Top 20 are all PS games.

Nagasaki, Japan
Are there any reviews out there of Disgaea 5?



Yeah that has to be april fools lol. Pretty soon for sequel talk, even though it wouldn't shock me in the least.
For what it's worth, this pops up when you go to the official site and click on all the slimes.

If it's April Fools, it's a bad one by Japanese standards. They tend to be more goofy, ala Type-0 dating sim etc.

Looking forward to d5 hitting every platform known to man so that they can recoup those costs. Bad time to push out that game.

Yes but you said:

"So NIS was betting the farm on Disgaea 5 and they chose to release it along side some of the hottest IPs in gaming let alone Japan.".
SAO and One Piece are popular IPs in Japan outside of gaming

feel free to rephrase as you wish

I'll repeat what I said in the previous thread.

Expected (but good) result for Bloodborne. Great result for SAO given the 55k boost from PS3 copies. Disgaea 5 = roflmao bomba.

1.3 million install base. What were your expectations?
Its the most hyped Japanese or Western PS4 game to date and the first real system seller on top of being a genuinely great game, I was expecting 250k-300k.
