Media Create Sales: Week 17, 2014 (Apr 21 - Apr 27)

Western Musou?

I don't see any/many companies to even know what Musou is to want to collaborate so it's probably something for a platform holder again, tecmo koei is pretty close with Sony and they do have franchise developed in west that can work....

God of Warriors!
Heavenly Sword Warriors.

I'd bet on second one if I had to.
Playstation All-Stars Musou.

Good week for 3DS, better week for Wii U than previously. Sub-5k held off for now?

PS4 on its decline to sub-10k soon, PSV stable at 25k???

Huh? What caused the Wii U increase? Golden Week shouldn't be reflected until next week right?

Thanks. PS4 and Wii U finding slightly higher baselines right now than most were expecting seemingly. (There was lots of talk of sub 10k and sub 5k respectively.) So that's... something. It'll be interesting what kind of baseline Wii U finds after the Kart initial surge dies down. And with almost nothing coming out, will PS4 be able to hang around that 10k area.

Jeeze at that SAO drop. Did Bandai Namco not ship more copies?
What were the numbers? I would assume they have run out of their first shipment by now. Quite possible they didn't send a second shipment in time?

I would assume so, unless the game's got atrocious word of mouth.
From what I hear, it's a good game. Better than the PSP iteration.

Those hardware bumps are really small :/

Those were the hardware bumps last GW:

3DS # | 71.384 | 57.199
| PSV | 17.855 | 17.070
| PS3 | 17.490 | 15.353
| WIU | 10.573 | 8.058
| PSP # | 8.834 | 8.265
| WII | 1.670 | 1.527

Vita seems inmune to Golden Week effects XD.

I thought next week's numbers will reflect golden week? Can we get confirmation which week it is?

It'd never happen, but I'd love to see a DC or Marvel musou game. They have wide character selection and super heroes would easily fit the one vs many style.

Okay, last one:

Ni-Oh X Daikatana

So ruby sapphire remake.
Pikachu 3ds game
Pokken game

Pokemon seems to have a lot coming out. And a stadium game has to exist sometime. I mean, it's way too obvious not to.
R/S remake was kind of expected. With the X/Y being in 3D already, I think a Stadium type game loses some of its appeal. Pikachu detective game and Pokken might be interesting.

Hmm so maybe some GW effects next week but majority of it should've been seen this week

Might explain the 3DS and Wii U rise I suppose. Wonder if it held off a Vita decrease? PS4 decreased regardless

Theatrhythm series, second week comparison:

[3DS] Theatrhythm Final Fantasy - 10.786 / 77.993 (sold out) [LTD: 163.098]
[3DS] Theatrhythm Curtain Call - 24.796 / 100.663

Jeeze at that SAO drop. Did Bandai Namco not ship more copies?
I don't think they are having stock problems. The original dropped real hard too.

14./01. [PSP] Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment # <RPG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2013.03.14} (¥6.280) - 18.002 / 156.182 (-87%)

Now we watch how it unfolds.

But people were saying 3DS had no games to be released on 2014 and Vita would be Japan's new 3DS. Whom should I believe?

Yup. Those 4 are pretty big deal. And since it's pretty much guaranteed Nintendo will launch the 2DS/new 3DS model this year, 3DS should have a wonderful Christmas.

By the way, I wonder when Spike-Chunsoft is planning to release a new console/handheld Attack on Titan game.

It's probably fair to say that all four of those will be considered system sellers. Yet, Yokai Watch released last year, Monster Hunter 4 released last year, and two Pokemon titles released last year. Which cats are compelled to buy hardware based on these titles, yet didn't buy the machine last year?

I guess you see the same thing in the west with CoD and FIFA. I just never think of them as system sellers.

Special edition Bundles.

The only true system seller is Smash of course.

This is true, those franchises are kind of still fresh on 3DS.

Aye, I know. I get it, but I don't get it, if you get it. I know it happens, I just can't fathom significant numbers of people going out and buying a device they already own because it now has a sticker on it. Still, that's the market they're catering to and it obviously works.

And there's still time for Dragon Quest XI.

Definitely expecting an announcemet this year, but August 2015 release, tbh. No matter the platform. Maybe Late february release at the very earliest.

***
About the "not system seller games".... no. Granted, they already have one or two games on the console, and pretty "fresh", but they're still amongst the biggest IPs in Japan right now, they WILL have a significant impact on sales (though we should not be expecting insane numbers like those we got last year). It's not like the 3DS has reached total saturation like the PS3...
