Dat year of Luigi

Also I didn't know Mario Kart 7 was already at two million in MC. New Super Mario Bros 2 is getting closer, perhaps in two weeks it will get it

And damn! That Vita drop wasn't expected, I though it could do 5 or 10 k more

Go Go Luigi!

Vita dropped pretty hard and the Wii U dropped less than what I expected. Though everything dropped this week.

Yess KH holding hopefully reaches 200k.

That Vita drop aint nice for sure.

WiiU not going to 10k surprised me.

Also Soul sacrifice still hanging too. Out of all the Vita games I am sure this one has the best legs right?

Wow @ Muramas Guess the port did do them well.
Vita dropping of at 19,000 :(
Time for the baseline to freeze.
Soul Sacrifice is starting to fall of the charts.

Well done Luigi

What exactly is the Wii U holding onto? Its sales dropped from the previous week and the Vita still outsold it.

So which week this year will the 3DS surpass the LTD of the Wii?

My guess: Week 42

Game & Wario at 36K according to Famitsu, and didn't drop nearly as sharply as DQX. Maybe it'll sell out of its first shipment in 2 year.

07./38. [WII] Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Super Deluxe Edition # <ACT> (Bandai Namco Games) {2012.11.29} (¥5.040) - 11.533 / 442.322

Nice bump, it will cross with ease the half a million mark.

15./00. [PS3] Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge <ACT> (Koei Tecmo) {2013.04.04} (¥7.140) - 9.659 / NEW

Pathetic, this franchise is done, it no longer sells well even in the West.

Wait a minute, is this being sold at full price? that's crazy.

Muramasa outsells mainline DQ game second week in a row!

Now to see if Vita can stabilize in the 15k range for a while or if it plummets sub 10k along with Wii U.

Edit: wait a sec... isn't Luigis Mansion called Luigis Mansion 2 in japan?

Wow @ Muramas Guess the port did do them well.
Vita dropping of at 19,000 :(
Time for the baseline to freeze.
Soul Sacrifice is starting to fall of the charts.
What does Vita's software lineup look like for the next few months?

I think both it and Wii U are heading back to the sub-10k/week range until they have consistent software releases.

There're people saying that Japanese will stop buying Luigi because Nintendo is advertising Tomodachi. With 3DS huge installed base, I do think both games can coexist, and Luigi might have good legs after all. Not to reach the 1 million mark, of course.
Weegee must beat Animal Crossing New Leaf in LTD so its not deemed a failure in my eyes.

And to think I expected Vita at 24K this week, despite the lack of software. Guess I was just overcompensating for lowballing it for most of March.

The price cut's impact might yet surpass my expectations (no improved baseline), but it's probably already fair to call it a failure from Sony's perspective, as I'd say 20K is the bare minimum baseline that might get the larger third parties to positively reevaluate their investment in the platform.

Yeah, I was expecting that Vita drop, but was hoping for more. And third place with 26k units... Terrible week.

Yea, that would have totally sold people on Wii Us.

Yet Nintendo thought game and wario was perfect for Wii U.

If anything, the better strategy would be to release Game and Wario on 3DS where it belongs since its a handheld franchise, and Luigi's Mansions 2 should be on the Wii U.
