At some point if every Wii U game is on NX, putting them on NX will make no sense. I don't think people are gonna be playing 20 Wii U, PS4 or 3DS ports at launch, no matter how successful it is. The Wii U will have to keep some games to itself.

Isn't Mario Tennis doing unusually well in Comgnet?

Yes, it is. I guess that Wii U is in a better position now than other years thanks to to great holiday season with Splatoon and Mario Maker. Mario Tennis could be the second/third game that the new users that purchased Wii U this Christmas are considering.

The game is doing better than the 2014 and 2015 winter games (Donkey Kong Returns 2 and Kirby Rainbow Curse). I also wouldn't be surprised if Zelda Twilight Princess and Pokken perform better than average Wii U games.

Attack on Titan not charting on comgnet with less than a month to go is a pretty big surprise to me.
I know there were high expectations for this game from many here when it was announced but what I saw looked totally unispiring to me, even comparing to the standard musou gameplay. It looks like the next big thing that fails to meet original hype.

KT should've waited for the second season of the anime. Right now the game's the bottom layer of a sandwich consisting of two poorly received live action films and a completed comedy anime.

200,000 was a prediction made by starting January, when it was already on COMG Chart, and i Said i would adjust my prediction with The COMG Thread. It's like with Splatoon when i predicted 1.8m and now i'm go with +2m because now 1.8m is stupid low. :p

Also i don't know if i'm famous or something like This since people always quote me ( Maybe is really This since People call me The Zhuge EX alt muhaha /jk) but like You mensione my predictions for Pokken, should we also talked about who predicted 100k LT, or 150k maximum, like Pennywise or Eolz?
Or we just interesting in Tolu prediction?

Super popular manga IP + Renowned developer + Sony ecosystem... One would expect a big success especially considering the success of projects such as Ken's Rage and One Piece Warriors. Instead it might end selling less than Attack on Titan 3DS.

Obviously this is counting multiple SKUs of the same game.

Pokken could outsell it worldwide.
Wouldn't that be a terrible result for SFV? I guess I am not sure how to gauge the popularity of Pokemon in such a context as what is outright a core fighting game rather than its many other much more "in tune with the younger audience" spin-off games.
That would indeed be pretty terrible if that happened.
I'm sure SFV will win easily WW (edit: NX version or not), but I have no idea for japan to be honest.

Not that great for dragon quest. Only encouraging thing is that the ps3 version is near dead. Mario Tennis on the other hand is going to have an opening week that exceeds my expectations.

DQB is too expensive at launch for the audience that'll mostly buy the game, to have a really strong launch.
If the game isn't outright terrible, it should have nice legs (on vita).

Yeah the PS3 seems to be falling off pretty hard at this point.

I suspect a lot of the active users have migrated already.
For several franchises not yet. Yakuza will have a big part of sales on PS3 next week and we still have to see how PS4 reacts at big exclusive titles. Dark Souls III will be the next test.

LOL and this is wrong, when someone made a prediction he should always change it if somthing is wrong.

Like for a console Lifetime prediction, there are people who make a random guess like "PS4 will sell 100 million", which is not a bad prediction, the problem is HOW they make it.

Because we SHOULD make an annual prediction for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, ecc...

I changed my PS4 prediction a LOT of times, i predicted like 120 million at launch, then i predicted 90 million by end of 2014, and now i say around 100 million, reason? It sold better than what i expected at launch, but less in 2014, and more in 2015, that's why i increase and decrease my prediction, if the trend is difference i always change it.

Like for Splatoon. Why i changed my prediction 1.8m to 2m? Maybe because it sold better than what i predicted? I predicted 1.2m by end of 2015, and it sold >1.32m

This is how you should make a prediction.


Btw, talking about predictions, i was right. With what predition? I predicted you was gonna reply me... ;P

I have nothing against you it is just that your predictions are the most outstanding ones :p
So, this confirmed what i said. I'm famous. :D

In America amiibo Festival outsold Mario Tennis. It looks to be the opposite in Japan. That is just hilarious.

Well all considering both sold super low, so this is not much important.

But wow, Mario Tennis sold 67,000 in USA in 6 weeks ( 6 HOLIDAYS week), looks like it will sell around those numbers only first week in Japan?

Still bad but i don't get why it should do better in Japan.

Dragon Quest Builders is low. Square really screwed up on pricing if they were trying to target the Minecraft audience.

Mario Tennis looks bad too but I'm not sure how that franchise usually sells.

Not that surprised at YSO's predictions for DQB, will probably sell more on the long term, but in the end, it's neither DQ nor Minecraft. At least the PS4 numbers for it seem decent enough.

When some of you saw "low" or what not, what would have been a suitable range for DQB that would have satisfied your expectations?
 
So, this confirmed what i said. I'm famous. :D
Yes you are, mate. At least, in terms on outstanding bets and other stuff. That Splatoon 1.5 million of you, really gave you a point.

Show me the numbers please~
Rakuten had PS3 version first, but they reported a very small difference. So I expect that even though the PS3 version could end up selling more, a 55% - 45% ratio is lock a this point.

Dragon Quest Builders is low. Square really screwed up on pricing if they were trying to target the Minecraft audience.
Here, the key will be the afterpricecut that stores could do. I'm quite sure Square is gonna overship this thing.

I still think the primary audience for the game in Japan is the DQ fan base and therefore the price should not be a problem. In the long-run this might hurt if they want to target the Minecraft audience but Builders is primary a DQ game.

Okay, looking back Mario Tennis eeked out over AF in the US. Tennis still seems to be overperforming relative to expectations here.

I don't think Minecraft opened too high, so Builders's FW seems fine. If it wants good legs though it'll need strong WOM and probably a price drop.

I think Builders will have better legs than many other Dragon Quest games depending on how low the price will be dropped to. Once it hits 4k yen or lower I think it may be possible for it to hang around the bottom of the charts for a while.

Monster Strike and Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon suffered a pricecut on Rakuten, don't know if Amazon though. They are 33% and 42% off respectively.

I almost want to think that if Paper Mario is actually a WiiU release, its because of the weird end-of-life flatness YoY of the WiiU, and Nintendo wants to give the perception of a good end-of-life to the audiences that Splatoon and SMM have rather unexpectedly started to cultivate. The more active audience, as we can see from MT and Pokken, could also help push for the title to be released on the WiiU.

The 3DS is easier since it actually has external support, and its going to go out with a rich schedule in Japan and in the west (where, its looking to be better than it was last year, strangely).

I think Builders will have better legs than many other Dragon Quest games depending on how low the price will be dropped to. Once it hits 4k yen or lower I think it may be possible for it to hang around the bottom of the charts for a while.
Unless SE really stuffed retail, I honestly don't see this having legs. Price (fixable) but the game itself just feels shortsighted.

And price, I wouldn't say, is good at 4k for the target audience but 2k.

Speaking of late-life support, any updates concerning Harada's Project Treasure/Lost Reavers? Figured we might hear something about its reception or n.o. downloads about now.

In the West it'll mostly be RPGs and niche Japanese games. Pretty weak schedule so far for Western tastes, even for the portable market, which does lean towards Japanese games. It's severely lacking in the mainstream department. Personally this is the first year where I'm not looking forward to anything, unless Federation Force turned into a polished, ambitious game. Well I'm somewhat looking forward to Sonic Boom Fire and Ice but that's it.

In Japan however, 2016 should be a great springboard for the NX.

That's what happened, M-C doesn't mention the limited edition SKU.
I was gonna ask how Famitsu can track the sales of the Limited Edition since it's only sold online, then learned that both Bookwalker and Chara-ani.com are under Kadokawa Corporation too. :O Makes sense now, thanks!
