PREDICTION LEAGUE FEBRUARY 2015

Predict how much these titles will sell in the month (from Jan 26 to Feb 22):

[3DS] Devil Survivor 2 Break Record (25 days) -
[ALL] Dragon Ball Xenoverse (18 days) -
[PS4+PSV] God Eater 2 Rage Burst (4 days) -
[ALL] Samurai Warriors 4-II (12 days) -
[3DS] The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask 3D (9 days) -
[PS4] The Order 1886 (3 days) -

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: January 28th 2015 08:00 am (EST)



Attention:
  • Remember for some games it's not only the 1st week.
  • Multiplatform games are the combined available sales of each platform
  • [ALL] = all consoles (PS4 + PS3 + 360 + XBO + etc.) the game is being released

Rules:
  • Do not edit your post after the deadline. If you do, you'll be disqualified.
  • The official monthly hardware sales will be the sum of weekly numbers for all versions of the system available from Famitsu.
  • The official monthly software sales will be the latest total or the sum of the weekly numbers if the title is release before the period available from the Famitsu Top 30.
  • The official monthly sales for multi-platform releases will be the combined available sales of each platform shown in the title entry.
  • The official monthly sales for games with multiple versions will be the combined available sales of each version shown in the title entry.
  • Any game missing in the Famitsu top 30 will be taken out of the predictions.

Before you ask, yes, DQH is released February 26th, but it ends up in Famitsu's calendar for March.

Also, sorry I'm late. Due to the unusual monthly calendar I just mentioned, I forgot to open the predictions earlier. I should set up calendar reminders for myself...

Hyrule Warrios.

Even if it can't reach a million, isn't Koei Tecmo doing an incredible job monetizing game content? It seems there's plenty of DLC already with more upcoming. The margins should be substantial to offset the game not reaching enough sold units to cover the costs.

This company is getting quite attached to this busyness model, i heard there's 100's of dollars worth of DOA 5 suits.

P.S. Road, did you forget to include The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D? In case you did I will later edit my post to include it.

What?!! It is being released this month? I thought it was April/Golden Week or something. lol

Going to put Zelda in place of Seven Deadly Sins, which was just filling a spot. Likewise, I only put Far Cry 4 last month because there was nothing else.

Sorry, please correct your post as well, sörine.

Unrelated, but Geimin has a note on the website they were hacked. And gamedatamuseum is all in some weird green, I wonder if they were attacked as well. It's been awhile since I've gone to 2ch, there must be a thread about it.

All right, after about the first week, here's where Bravely Default: D's Archive sits on iOS:

The actual performance isn't especially astounding, but what did surprise me was the review scores, especially since games based on handheld/console series are usually judged much harder by their fans than games that just target mobile audiences. Here is a review comparison of Square Enix's successful mobile titles (plus Record Keeper since it bears the FF name).



Given this, I suspect the game isn't as aggressively monetized as some of their games. That or it offers better gameplay than most.

It would be nice to actually translate what the articles say when posting them in an English forum. Just saying.
Experience's boss Hajime Chikami tweeted that additional physical copies that they printed last week were sold out, and they're printing more. Also, digital sales numbers are the highest compared to their previous titles. Not sure if he meant first week sales or total.

Thanks!

Given this, I suspect the game isn't as aggressively monetized as some of their games. That or it offers better gameplay than most.
It might also be that the score is not actually statistically different from the score of FF:RK, which has a bigger sample size.

It seems a bit more in-depth than your standard mobile RPG, but it's certainly not Bravely Default's system.

It might also be that the score is not actually statistically different from the score of FF:RK, which has a bigger sample size.
It's the way the scores are divided that surprise me more than the number. Most mobile games have the majority of their reviews be 5's because a lot of people will always rate something a 5 if they like it.

However, usually you don't see it this top heavy in the 4's and 5's, because the people who are more critical than "I like it so it's a 5" will go down notably farther, and there tends to be a spike of 1's where people are really angry about this type of game existing in said franchise (or due to core mechanics).

Here there's shockingly little vitriol or even ho-hum 3 responses.

It'd be nice to know, then, how scores allocation was when DQ and FF were first released. What I see, anyway, is that a game from a well-known "traditional" franchise (FF:RK) has a really, really low percentage of 1's, as a new mobile IPs (Sangokushi Rumble); all the other games follow the same trend,both new and old IPs.

Actually looking at my chart I excluded a few I was thinking of that reviewed more poorly in major franchises.

Notably none of these make money, especially compared to the above.

Didn't know G-Bike fared so bad. On GP, despite being between 100,000 and 500,000 downloads, the game never entered the top 200 of Grossing Charts. It really didn't profit that much.

Bravely Archive is surely faring better: currently around 40th in the Grossing Charts, and 7th in the Free Download Ranking. 40th in the Grossing Charts is not that great, but it's not that bad either.

Probably, later today I'll post a first analysis on its performance on Android, since it went over 100,000 downloads a few days ago.

To further prove how dead the Xbone is in Japan: Dragon's Dogma Online won't come out on X1 from the looks of it (at least not in Japan). PS3/4 + PC. F2P. Interesting... It's 2015, apparently, and it's definitely the big scoop teased last week.

The fact it's (for now) not planned for the West, yet has a PC version, seems to indicate they're targetting Asian markets (imo).

Since they're yet to confirm Deep Down for the West too (or did I miss something), it's... well, Capcom can be confusing sometimes
(aka: most of the time)

Didn't Xilia 2 fail/struggle to sell through the first shipment? Makes sense that they'd be a bit more careful this time around.

So, ToZ did ok then?

Decent numbers for ToZ. Not to mention that in future they will sell it second time to some people with enchanted PS4 version...
Fixed that for ya. Probably one of the announcements at either Tales of Festa in June, or at Sony's presser at (pre)TGS.

But yeah, Tales of series is quite stable, sales-wise.
