the problem is the same in all countries : you raise taxes, you don't raise salaries = people don't spend money

but the real problem is people are still voting Abe despite his bad economic politic
Abe is in a tough spot because needed reforms won't happen until there is a crisis because stakeholders always block needed change.

It seems we know one of Nintendo's first party titles for the Q4 in Japan: Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon.

Also, since it releases on Early 2016 in Europe (...), it lowers the odds of next big Pokémon title's release in February (the same month as Pokémon's 20th Anniversary) a lot.

The major retailers like Yodobashi, Sofmap, Bic Camera, Yamada etc dont carry import titles and other places are smaller shops if they have not gone under. D:
but compared to some years ago there are more shops selling import : in Akihabara there is AsoBitCity and Trader also has a section about import, both console and PC

due to its success it's not strange to see the US version of Minecraft PS3 sold in used shops, a lot of store chains also have import titles (used, but if they are selling them that means there is a little demand ), something that was impossible just 5 or 6 years ago

It's just a far worse Valkyria + X-Com wannabe with terrible art and boring ass mission design. Doubt anyone will care. Strategy fans will just remember the superior games which inspired this instead. Thank God Nintendo released a meaty demo, I'm sure it helped lots of people save their money.
It's okay, everyone is criminally wrong sometimes. :)
 
Nirooo. Me need some data Hortensia Saga especially on May 21 plizzz. That day is the start of huge event for Guild Wars. I wanted to see whether it is going to have huge following or not here.^_^

If possible Chain Chronicle too.^_^(now is currently on Casino event lol.)
Tx. Niro.........T_T Actually how do we even read the chart here.T_T Is it showing it is slowing down rather than doing better?

I guess the Casino event is not that good and people are more or less preparing for upcoming Tower Event which i believe is going to be another huge upswing too.

For Hortensia, is that normal to see it goes down? Or it is doing badly there?
And, continuing from last thread, the update for when the event actually started. It's currently at #9.

Fun Fact: Codename: S.T.E.A.M. debuted this week.
Nintendo hyped that game up like crazy, but I guess I wasn't the only one that didn't see the appeal of that sort of game. I like when Nintendo tries out new franchises, but they haven't had a high success rate with them. I think they went the wrong direction with STEAM. On the other hand, I'm not sure why Wonderful 101 flopped. Unfortunately these kind of sales numbers deter Nintendo from trying new franchises. They'll continue to be more prone to giving us another mario spinoff before a new franchise moving forward.

i think you mean about the US, cause here in Japan I never saw any CM about Steam

the same or something similar happened with W101, I think if they pushed up the half they are promoting Splatoon I'm sure it would have sold much better

no advertising = no sales

It'll be interesting to see if Terra Battle will rise through the charts again starting from today. They brought back the Odin event (with Leviathan and Bahamut to follow), added more DNA Recode characters, finally opened up the next part of the story with Chapter 31, extended the event for The Last Story, added Metal Zone 6, and there's a Nico stream next Friday with more "new information" and details regarding Download Starter 2.

Yup. Just as I thought. The event launched 4 new SSR card+ new event which discount the amount of prysma needed to pull gacha. It is not suprising to see the huge jump in revenue.^_^

Guess Hortensia Saga is doing much better than I thought. Good job for Sega there.^_^ now..... Give me my SSR segaaaaaaa!!!

I think Splatoon might surprise us; think it'll do considerate numbers to Pikmin 3?

It's made it up to 7 now. Not sure how much high it will go as it takes a lot of money per position here.

I'll believe good sales when I see it

I never understood why you guys love this points stuff, I admit I need a better explanation of why we make such a fuss over them
You don't need to understand it.
We have more reliable sources claiming that Splatoon shipments are higher than Xenoblade X, still increasing, and chances to surpass 200k shipped first week are very high.

It's still crazy that Pikmin 3 is an example of some shining success on Wii U.
It would be on any current gen platform but 3DS.

PS4 games above Pikmin 3: 2
Wii U games above Pikmin 3: 6
Vita games above Pikmin 3: 8
3DS games above Pikmin 3: 43
One games above Pikmin 3: lol
