The Last of US did pretty good. Surprised that DKC is #2 though, you'd think people wouldn't care all that much about a downgraded port of a nearly 3 year old game. Oh, and Wii U continues to sell poorly.

Pretty boring week apart from TLOU.

Everything saw a small decline, except the Vita.

Surprised to see Last of Us, but then again maybe i shouldn't be, nothing major launched that week it seems.

Ah, new thread.

Good number for The Last of Us, just a bit below UC3's debut.

New IP, Western game, middle of the year. Not bad, not bad at all.

How does it compare to Uncharted 1-3?
First weeks:

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - 16,914
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - 55,063
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - 122,552

Famitsu numbers though, so would be better to compare like for like, but should give an idea.

Look for me on the local news, I'll be the guy arrested for trying to burn down a Nintendo exec's house.

PS3 at sub 10k while Last of Us rules this week just goes to show either the console needs a price drop or its long since reached the now upper limit of home console gaming in Japan. Which is a bit of a worry.

Get your shit together Nintendo!
They're doing so?

I don't get why people complain about the Wii U sales every week, when the plans haven't been put into motion yet. No Wii U games out? Of course its sales aren't going to increase.Not to mention this is the summer lull that hits Japan and always has weakened hardware sales.

If it hits December, we have Mario and it's still like this, then sure, but come on.

PS3 at sub 10k while Last of Us rules this week just goes to show either the console needs a price drop or its long since reached the now upper limit of home console gaming in Japan. Which is a bit of a worry.
PS3 is still pretty damn expensive though considering how long it has been on the market. Same price as basic WiiU... It really needs price cut.

PS3 < 10k :eek:

When was the last time this happened?
Good showing TLoU, I'm surprised but then again I had no idea U3 did so well.

Excellent debut for TLOU, numbers about on par with UC3 like in the UK, fantastic for a new IP. Hope it has legs.

Because even if the games aren't out just yet Nintendo needs to be trying harder to get customers to buy it. Beyond upcoming games, are they advertising the thing at all?

My impression, and Japanese gafers can correct me if I am wrong, is that basically around the world Nintendo has been on radio silence advertising wise until they start getting consistent software releases.

I *expect* Nintendo to start advertising heavily for Pikmin 3 starting very soon (I assume the Direct was the kick off)

This was billed as the final, ultimate Taiko game correct?

I assume that means a Taiko Wii U game will be coming this holiday...

Very nice for TLOU indeed.

9 year old handheld almost doing as good as the Wii U though, ouch. It definitely needs an exclusive killer app or something to guide people over to the console.
