Last year somebody said Yakuza 1&2 HD (WiiU version) wasn't on Famitsu/MC top50 because a heatwave stoped people from buying the game.

Since that day everytime something bombs it's been a heatwave (or snowstorm in Winter).

I think this started it all:

It was also really hot to the level of heat wave in Japan last week, and it came out in a holiday weekend where people were not in the streets. Even the Pokémon Centers were fairly empty and that seldom happens.

This has an effect on sales. I'm not saying this to spin but as an explanation. You need to factor in all the factors in order to make a determination.

So what happened to 11-30 on the Famitsu results? Yokai Watch keeps trucking along. The battle at 8K is kind of depressing though.

And still most nintendo firstparty games sell more than these games in Japan. There aren't a lot of million sellers in that list of third party games.
The difference is that with Nintendo games the audience overlaps a lot more than with those third party franchises. Or how else you explain sales difference between GC/N64 and PS3? Also those big third party games bring smaller third party publishers to the platform like with PS3. Software sales of PS3 peaked in Japan during its sixth year in the market. More and more smaller pubs are going to mobile or staying on handhelds though.

Sony was very lucky with PS4 in the West. Hype drove sales, despite a lack of worthwhile killer exclusives. In Japan, the situation is much more dire for them, especially since the content they do have isn't appealing to that region. Wii U will cross streams with PS4 within the next two weeks, and I'm not sure if and when they cross back.
I don't know where this illusion comes that PS4 (or Xbone) somewhat had lackluster and unappealing software launch lineup in the west. You can't go bigger than BF, COD, AC or FIFA when it comes to appealing to mainstream audience. These games may not appeal to gaffers but they appeal to mainstream. PS4 had best versions of all these games. Especially BF4 is almost completely different game between last and current gen (60fps and 64 players). If you want to pick platform that sold on hype alone PS2 in Japan is your answer.

PC Had the best version of those games and they were available (for cheaper) on last gen hardware.

People will upgrade for games they just can't play on their current hardware, they won't otherwise.

PS4 is selling on hype alone in the west. Its exclusives have been lackluster or selling inline with their PS3 versions (KZ was terrible, Knack is dreadfull and I haven't played Infamous but I doubt it tells a different sales story than Infamous 1 and 2)

When the best PS4 launch game is a freebie, you know you have problems :p (I'm looking at you, Resogun)

Sure, same thing could have been said about the last generation, where the best version of the same titles was available on PC, especially true late in the generation when getting a good gaming PC was relatively easy.

People who bought a console last generation, are likely to buy one now. The parity between PC and console version is at its best right now.

Does anyone think Hot Shots Gold 7 will be released this year? Hot Shots 6 was released in Dec 2011 and then released at launch for the Vita in the west. So we'd have three years of development time this winter (assuming they had a third party do the port to PS3 and most of the localisation stuff wasn't in house).

Hot Shots 7 and Project Beast would be at least something for Japan to enjoy this winter.
Then there's the slight chance of a GTA5 PS4 port being a PS4 game in the charts (based off of the PS3 versions legs).
 
Sure, same thing could have been said about the last generation, where the besy version of the same toyles was available on PC, especially true late in the generation when getting a good gaming PC was relatively easy.

Actually no, in 2005/2006 most third party games weren't available on PC or were some very rushed out/terrible ports.

This is no longer the case. XBox One and PS4 have a lot more competition from the PC this generation, especially at their current price point (460$ pre tax and without a game to play your games online). Their dire lack of exclusives (the XBONE slightly less so) isn't helping either. Of course all of that is without counting the competition from the mobile space.

I should have specified that I didn't mean the beginning of the last generation. But look at the last 4-5 years.

Your argument PS4 is selling on the hype alone just isn't very solid. PS4 has all the big games, that has been selling best on consoles year after year. People won't suddently buy a gaming PC to play the best versions of those games, just because generation has ended. They could have done the same thing a number of years ago. They are more likely to either not upgrade at all or get the next iteration of the consolea.

Well due to lack of back wards compatibility it's not really all... generally most. Still though I do agree that the PS4 is selling on hype, because the majority of those games can be bought on last gen consoles, pc etc. People really don't need to buy the system to play most of those games.

That's not a bad thing as it means people have enough trust in the future of the consoles and are willing to pay $400 for improved versions of games they could play on their previous consoles.

Who would have thought we would be seeing this so soon. Curious to see how MK drives sales in japan.
TBF I could have called this before launch. I'm pretty sure I did though I don't think I wrote it in a past. There was absolutely no indication the PS4 would perform better than the Vita in it's first year (and the Vita sold like shit in it's first year). Mario Kart while on the Wii U is still a major game and even a 10-20k boost would be enough for the Wii U to surpass the PS4 even if the Wii U was selling like utter crap like it is.

OMG can't stop laughing. I knew that phrase was being thrown around even in that thread but I didn't realise it was because that particular quote.

"Even the Pokémon centres were empty"... Well deserved tag. :lol Can't make that shit up...

I asked this before, but why do we have only have the top 10 games from Famitsu as opposed to the usual top 30? I guess Chris might know?

So what is everyone expecting for Wii U/MK8 during MK8 week?

Does 50k Wii Us and 200k Mario Karts make sense? That seems low, but Japan isn't getting an MK8 bundle, right?

Every game you listed is available on the systems everybody already owns. Hype sold the system.

3DS: Mario Golf World Tour ( Nintendo ) { 2014-05-01 } - 58,745 / 82.829
GBA : Mario Golf: Advance Tour ( Nintendo ) { 2004-04-22 } - 28,581 / 88,904
NGC : Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour ( Nintendo ) { 2003-09-05 } - 63,263 / 192,802
N64 : Mario Golf 64 ( Nintendo ) { 1999-06-11 } - 126,108 / 470,778
NGB : Mario Golf GB ( Nintendo ) { 1999-08-10 } - 92,760 / 219,830

The sales are disappointing to my eyes but the series has experienced drops with each new iteration, 3DS seems to be breaking that trend though.
Thanks. Good to see the 3DS ending that trend. Also, Gamecube sales weren't bad at all. I can't see a Mario Golf on Wii U breaking 100k.

People upgrade when they see a lot of ads in tv advertizing their favorite franchise and those ads say ''better on next gen''. Sure the bigger wave comes when they go fully this gen with these games but even these ports absolutely sell the systems. COD Ghost is currently the best selling game on both PS4 and Xbone and this year Advanced Warfare probably already sells more on this gen consoles than last gen consoles. Big multiplatform games sell the systems in west. Not exclusives.

I don't want to be pessimistic, but don't see the Wi U selling that much. I'd say 35k ~ 40k is a more safe estimative. MK, on the other hand, I expect more than that. I see the game having a crazy attach rate.

No, Advanced Warfare isn't going to sell more on XBONE/PS4 than 360/PS3.

It won't even be close.

Well I guess we will see. Sure I maybe exaggerated a bit but the difference will not be massive. BF4 is already selling more n PS4/Xbone monthly. Last gen is dying really fast.

Yeah. I'm not even sure CoD 2015 is a lock to sell more on gen 8 (though by then it should, I'd hope).

I see what you did.

I think 50k sounds pretty good for hardware, maybe a tad high. 200k sounds too low for software. I think they can do 300k+. A couple people said 400k; sounds a little high, but we'll see.

(I base this on nothing.)

Never did I think PS4 sales would drop below Wii U sales. It seems inevitable now.


Unlike most people, I'm okay with Japan being handheld-land. Other regions seem to like handhelds less now, but despite Japan's huge crush on mobile, 3DS has done pretty well in Japan. So yeah, I like seeing 3DS and Vita in first and second place, I just wish WiiU wouldn't sell so miserably :p
I'd be ok with it too, but the 3DS and Vita aren't exactly lighting up the charts.

Famitsu Sales: Week 19, 2014 (May 05 - May 11)
Looks like I got a bit too impatient >_>... Thanks for the #s as usual =).


24./29. [3DS] Harvest Moon: Linking the New World <SLG> (Marvelous AQL) {2014.02.27} (¥5.040) - 2.894 / 210.649 <80-100%> (-13%)

Is this the highest for a Harvest Moon game ever? I don't remember any of them selling more than 200K...

Also how do the sales of the current Fossil Fighters compare to the DS one?

It was basically the lowest cost "core" system, offering a discernible upgrade from the previous gen, and MS brought on-board a critical mass of third party content.

That's basically the gist of what the PS4 has done now too.

I don't think the formula has been dramatically reworked.

Also wasn't it only really later in the PS2 cycle where it started focusing on things like SingStar and Eyetoy from memory?
the ps2 didn't need to focus on games that would be considered 'casual' titles in later generations- the dvd playback ensured widespread appeal despite it being a video game machine. that's a big distinction between that and the xbox 360, which built its appeal primarily as a video game player, and why i see the playstation 4 as closer to that system. the early library on the ps4 is also a lot closer to the 360's versus the 360's and ps2's.

also the ps2 wasn't the lowest-cost 'core' system of its gen. the ps2 was always more expensive than the gamecube and dreamcast.

Konami has announced something new for Vita! And it's not a baseball game, finally!

Yes, it's the other kind of Vita game. One with anime girls.

You remember wrong. The last 3DS Harvest Moon sold >250k and a DS entry sold >300k.

Just to clarify for anyone who's interested, it's a Nisekoi game, coming out this autumn.
