The 300-400k number (if it ends that high) seems good to me but the sell-through of the standalone version is worrying depending on the split between bundle and standalone copies.

Actually now I think DQX could even reach the million mark in a couple months, with some long legs.
Well, it better should given the huge load of copies in the wild.
The whole story of the first few weeks and the aftermath will be really interesting to follow.

We might be entering a new spike in the sales age threads activity :yummy:

I think a major problem is how they handle the transition to Wii U. It could be ugly or they could make a lot of money. Also, MMOs typically see expansions to hold their player base. If we assume this is true for DQX will they even bother continued support for the Wii version as Wii will be securely buried in the ground by the time they get to that point?
 
It was to be expected considering kids time, AI party characters and the easier storage solution.
I was referring to some people saying it would have seen a decline similar to the one Final Fantasy had with XI; this would have put the game around 350k units, but if it could manage to sell that amount in the first week, it has already overcome those predictions.


Well you have the other portable... But it ain't selling that well to have such big franchise as DQ on it yet
Dragon Quest XI on Vita would be the most unexpected thing that could happen, and one of the worst market decision Square Enix could have made.

What's GAF concensus for DQXI? Going to be for 3DS or I'm mistaking?
Will probably be announced between any point from now until the end of next year. Released in 2014 (?) or 2015. Just my guess. As it seems right now it'll obviously be for 3DS...

Dragon Quest XI on Vita would be the most unexpected thing that could happen, and one of the worst market decision Square Enix could have made.
Oh c'mon, you know who has the last say about this. Ain't ever gonna happen on Vita unless it suddenly starts selling like 500k units a week.

Those DQ numbers seem pretty good, a little better than I expected if it reaches 400k. Maybe it'll outsell FFXIII-2. lol
Let's not forget that Dragon quest X is coming out on Wii U as well, that version should sell another 70k/100k as a bare minimum or more, also depending on what bonus features they'll put into it.

Speaking of which, most probably WiiU version will not need a keyboard or mic add-on, and for sure won't need an USB key.

It'll still need some storage the wiiu 8gb flash won't be enough

43./00. [PS3] Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce 2 HD Version <ACT> (Koei Tecmo) {2012.07.26} (¥4.178)

Woah.
Have any PSP Remasters done well besides MHP3rd? Seems like the program's not really going anywhere, though more desirable releases (God Eater Burst, Dissidia 012, FF Type-0, Valkyria Chronicles 3EX, Project Diva Extend, etc) would probably help.

Woah.
None of these are really surprising. People have had enough of Cave Story (and this version has terrible graphics), and I never thought anyone would be interested in an HD port of a 2-year old shitty game in a system that's drowning in superior Musou games. And it seems I was right.
