Since we got an updated on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds I post this comparison chart. As we can see, its post-launch sales have been extremely disappointing.

I noticed that people are constantly posting a very old figure for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, latest known number is 346.802 (as of December 30, 2012).

IMO a big reason for the console malaise in Japan is the fact that new releases still cost 8208 yen or sometimes more. If games cost upwards of $100 over here, I don't think they would be selling as well either. Especially considering as hard hit as the economy is over there and the stagnant salaries. I know, I just got back from living over there for several years and the average person is having a hard time just getting by and they do not have money to blow on such expensive luxuries. If they would just bring the cost down to reasonable levels I think sales would pick up (outside of used game shops).

I agree with you, but if I think carefully I realize that's not (the only) reason.

For example, I think Vita games are priced too high, like home ones, and even if you look for an used game the price is still high, but PS4 situation is a little different, a lot of games are priced almost the same as PS3 releases.

Nintendo, on the other side, has not a big difference between the previous prices (DS+Wii vs. 3DS+WiiU), but Wii U games despite the lower price are not selling

I get that Wii U is struggling, but predictions of sub 100k for the month are pretty low imo. Even Pikmin 3 pushed 22k wii u systems on it's release in the slow month of July, and Mario Kart is leagues bigger in Japan than either that or any recent 3D mario games, or any framchise released stand alone on the Wii U thus far.

I had guessed that. was just wondering if they cared enough to keep it going depending on the player since the online infrastructure is mostly gone if ever there was time to close without much issue that'd probably be it.
I think they would have too since the majority of users are still on the Wii.

Well there has to be an official stance why the game isnt out in europe...right ? I mean yes they are making money like crazy, but wouldnt this be the kind of no-brainer action stakeholders would be pushing for ? Just feels so weird, that they just ignoring the market.

btw. I also would be interested in new information about Wonder Flicks performance, from what i`ve seen L5 keeps pushing the games with TV ads and also introduces popular characters from other IPs like Yokai Watch in promotions. Their last Level 5 Vision event was pretty much all about their mobile/f2p games so the expectation are very high i would guess.



Thanks for the clarification, doesnt sound too bad honesty. Overheard some guys in the iOS thread strictly refusing to play the game because there was no form of cloud-support - maybe they patched that in recently ?
Wonder Flick didn't do so hot long run. Will be interested to see if it does better on dedicated devices:

Also sorry about the Sega boildown delay. I'll put that in the next thread.

I thought everyone would predict sub 100k for the WiiU when the predictions started coming in, but it looks like everyone is predicting ~130k on this page :p
I kinda wanted to predict 200k for the WiiU, partly because it isn't that high over 5 weeks, but those seemed like holiday sales. I had to cram in 59 and 160k felt right.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

So weird - it kinda seems like the "perfect" f2p game for mobiles - this just show how unpredictable the market is, even when all boxes are checked.

Wonder how their other f2p mobile initiatives will perform.

Well it's mobile rulette. Either you win big or you don't and then you are happy if it still is profitable for you.

Nintendo’s Wii U has outsold the PlayStation 4 this week in Japan according to sales data provided by Famitsu.

The Wii U has been close behind Sony’s consoles for the last few weeks and this week overtook the PS4 by 1,471 units.

The bigger surprise was that the change comes as Infamous: Second Son finally arrived in Japan. The superhero game was partially behind a sales of boost of 500 units week-on-week and helped the PlayStation 4 outsell the PlayStation 3 – though just four units seperated the two consoles.

Here are the hardware numbers

1. Nintendo 3DS LL – 20,304
2. PS Vita –13,334
3. Wii U – 8,858
4. PS4 – 7,387
5. PS3 – 7,383
6. Nintendo 3DS – 4,711
7. PSP – 1,201
8. PS Vita TV – 762
9. Xbox 360 – 104
