Is Arkham Knight PS4 exclusive in Japan ?
Pretty sure it is.

There's a reason why they call it THE BATTEST!

Which makes even less comprehensible why Warner Bros. expects 150,000 units sold in Japan, which is not happening, despite the very good debut for the game when compared to its predecessors
Really that much? Maybe lifetime with a re release.

The bundle did run out at some stores but since it's just a code Sony may just re-run the promo.
It's awesome and sucks at the same time since bundling like that make it harder the gauge the total number of user base. Who's tracker that don't count bundle again?

Poor Dai Gyakuten Saiban. :(

I hope it's selling according to their expectations at least if it's sold out in some places.

Going by MC numbers, and considering how Splatoon is now the best selling Wii U title on the eShop of all time, it's possible the game already reached 500,000 units sold this week. It'll surely reach that mark next week, eve by adding just the extrapolated digital sales.

I bought the Yoshi game, and I am loving it.

I also bought an amiibo thinking they'd sell out like the rest. There's still tons in stores and I bet they'll go down in price. >_<

Splatoon still amazing.

I suppose at least it prob means less sequels and more new IPs from Nintendo.
No, it means more online multiplayer games to get success. These days games with multiplayer sells better than Single player only games mostly because of longevity and playing with friends instead of alone for few hours. If Splatoon was a single player focused game with story then it wold have had same fate like yoshi.

Sony would be wise to have a persona ps4 bundle in Japan. Really interested in seeing how well it does when some heavy hitters come along.

Nice numbers for splatoon! Not so good hardware sales at the moment. Both 3DS and Vita have sold 200k less this year than last at the same time period. Are there any big hitters that will make the hardware spike or is it simply over?

It's funny when you think some actually think games like ff and DQ won't do anything for ps4 sales when we have seen sales spikes with relatively minor games.

Also ps4 is going to surpass last year's sales despite not having a launch to help.

Both PS4 and WiiU are slowly surpassing last year's numbers, at least that's a good thing, no?

Sounds like they should have made a 3D game then. Lord knows Wii U already has enough 2D platformers, and that style of game is much better suited to 3D platformers than 2D imo.
Eh, Feel Good Games is a 2D platforming developer, I don't know how succesful they'd be in 3D. I enjoy Woolly World as it is. I just know it isn't what most are looking for in a 2D platformer. It also does feel like a Yoshi game though.

It's one of my favorite games in years, and I'd honestly say my favorite game on the Wii U, so I'm glad they made it how it is.

It is so relaxing.
Oh, it's a blast. It's just that this type of game didn't have a good chance of selling well anyways because of how its set up. Hopefully Feel Good Games still can make great games despite its limited success because they're a really great company.

Well, it's a relatively good thing.

Neither platform are particularly strong, but it's at least a positive sign that they aren't folding and are actually improving on their past performance.

Splatoon and Minecraft still going strong. When was Minecraft released in Japan by the way? Last year?


PSV YOY gap is starting to increase, though Minecraft.

3DS, though declining, is quite similar.
The YOY gap for 3DS will most likely start to increase even more as well in the next weeks. From week 30-35 in 2014, the 3DS sold about 40k a week in avarge.

Is there any information/guess about the Splatoon dev time? I suppose they are seriously considering releasing it for NX. They must!

Imagine having Splatoon playable on NX Handheld. Japan would collapse

Decent week all around. Then again, Sony is giving away games now like Microsoft has been in the US to try and move hardware, so maybe not that good actually.

Except Yoshi. Yoshi is extinct.

About a year and a half for the whole thing.
