hiska-kun to the rescue!

A bit disappointing for Girl's Mode 3, but GW is just around the corner.

3DS is holding well, though it's not really doing fantastic either... then again, nothing really is, those days.

Minecraft starting to strech its legs (it's up compared to last week). I wonder how long it will stay in top 10. As for hw overall? Pretty bad but it's not like last years this week was that much better.

Golden Week is soon, that'll help hardware wise.

3DS: Up YOY for another week? Good! Actual result not being such a huge thing to brag about? That's true as well.
PS4: Up YOY of less than 1,000 units this week after all the titles released recently seems a bit disappointing, honestly. At least, this week didn't show a big drop as the former ones.
Vita: Down by 3,000 units, but Minecraft is surely holding.
Wii U: Why is Wii U up YOY in the past few weeks, it doesn't make sense (granted, it's 1,000 up, but...why)

I can't believe Wii U has still sold more in Japan than PS4. I thought for sure it would've been passed by now.

Also, will Japan ever lower the tax on luxury products back to 5% or whatever it was before the increase last year?

Yep nothing to see here considering that there was not any real substantial game release last week.

The funny thing is that 3DS is increasing YOY this week. YTD is not bad either.

Girls Mode 3 did less than expected but GW should mitigate the 2nd week drop.

FuRyu did nicely with the card game.

Not what I was expecting from Girls Mode. Golden week should help.

Otherwise, quiet week, other than Minecraft showing actual legs now (i.e. up WoW).

How much did Girls Mode 2 end up selling in total? I know that GM1 is about 900k (Famitsu).


Wii U: Why is Wii U up YOY in the past few weeks, it doesn't make sense (granted, it's 1,000 up, but...why)
Probably statistical noise. Same goes for the other systems where the difference is quite small. On this topic, i'm surprised how something sells so stable/constant. Like, why isnt it suddently 10k one week, and 3k the next week.

Wow, really disappointing for Girls Mode 3 and the 3ds... At least it'll have long legs.
I don't think 3DS is "really disappointing", since it's up YOY. Of course it's not that high, but it's also been on the market for a while...New 3DS has already come, probably the next step will be a price cut, IMHO.

Now, Girls Mode 3, instead...it's not a bad debut per se, and GW should help the game selling in the next few weeks, but I was expecting around 15 to 20,000 units better than that at retail. I'm curious about digital sales, too.

Good points.
For WiiU, maybe some deals before XCX?

I can't believe Wii U has still sold more in Japan than PS4. I thought for sure it would've been passed by now.
It would have been really surprising if it happened before this fall (best case scenario).


Edit: a bit disappointed by the 3ds because I expected GM3 to push it a bit more. Since sales for this one were disappointing as well...

Interesting to see Style Savvy at #1, didn't realize it was that successful in Japan. I think they seem like they could be fun games but my wife's never had any real interest so I've yet to play one. I'd feel a little weird getting it for myself, hah.

3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Tengoku-Hen is collapsing hard, this is not unusual for these titles, but overall sales are (especially on Famitsu) way lower than the previous entry.

[PS3 - PSV] 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-Hen <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2014.04.10} (¥8.715) - 334.661
[PS3 - PSV] 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Tengoku-Hen <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2015.04.02} (¥8.716) - 243.377

[PSV] Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition <ADV> (Sony Computer Entertainment) {2015.03.19} (¥2.592) - 11.121 / 102.104 (-17%)

PlayStation Vita finally found its evergreen title, without Minecraft its sales would be in the 10.000 range, which is what it was selling in February.

I'm just wondering, as I'm not that well versed in sales stuff, what seasonality do we see in Japanese sales figures. Not so much month to month but rather week to week.
I know that in Japan most people get paid monthly rather fortnightly in other places.
For NA this is not as much of an issue as sales data is usually monthly.
But would the majority of sales take place in the first week of the month?
Would the PAL charts have the same issue?

This week was even sadder than last. There are no winners here, only lesser losers.

Neat that MK8 continues to crawl towards a million. It will be the first Wii U game to hit that mark, won't it?

But hey, new Xbox One owners in Japan can all get together and form a decent 6 on 6 touch football league.

With the PS4 scooping up most of the major Western multiplats as Japan exclusives, you can expect the Xbox One to reach 100 units or less in the very near future.
