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

SE/Retailers never learn - FF3,DQM, DQM Terrys Wonderland 3D, i really wonder how much sales they lose every time they under ship those titles. They know they will be big but still choose to not order enough or manufacture enough.

Hope it legs wont get cut short by Black/White 2.

Famitsu says strong start for Tokyo Jungle and slow start for Gundam.

Tokyo Jungle could be somewhere close to 100k.
Gundam doesn't surprise me, cause the Battle series has been in decline for a while. Not that being on Vita helps.

DQM looks to be very supply constrained, then.

Square Enix probably should get more copies out there fast; if it takes another 2 weeks to get stock to acceptable levels, it'll get steamrollered by Black and White 2.

Have we heard any more about Black and White 2 preorders? I know they were steady with Black and White preorders a month or two ago, but I was wondering whether they'd lagged behind yet.

Are there any reports hinting whether DQ has been supply-restrained?
Did they manage eventually to restock to meet demand or is it just a steep drop-off?
at least from what I see on Amazon, none of the stores with prices below 6,000 have it in stock.

Not to be "that guy", but Gravity Daze had at least 30,000 in digital sales so I wonder if the other games are also going at around a 2.5/1 retail/download rate. Makes the numbers look a little better, but still horrible.

And both people criticizing DQMTW is due to the fact that you need WiFi to get certain rare monsters and you can't get certain rare monsters without pulling data in from the previous game.

I would be surprised if P4 sells less than 100k first week - its a hardcore title and probably the biggest Vita title so far.
