In a Dream
Nintendo should try to get Mario Land out by the end of October, then Kid Icarus in mid November, and then Mario Kart early December.

Great one-two-three punch. Third party titles would be icing on the cake.

What I mean is that I hope one is being made right now. We're probably still over a year away from a new main-series Pokemon and something needs to fill the gap.
pokemon white/black+ is probably next year, then the dreaded ruby/sapphire remakes in 2013, and finally pokemon gen 6 in 2014.

Different reporting stores and different extrapolation formula.

Discrepancies happen both with software and hardware every week. 20k are a lot of units, but 11% isn't the biggest difference we've seen.

3DS:

M-Create: 196,000
Famitsu: 215,000
Dengeki: 220,000

This week, MC happened to be further away from the other two.

I don't think it's that unusual. Looking at the Famitsu and Media Creaate numbers for 3DS through its first 24 weeks, they differed by more than 10% five times. Checking PSP in the same period, there are a few weeks where they even differ by more than 20%.

Are those Japan dates or NA/EU/AU dates? All of the main Pokemon games except R/B/Y and FR/LG have released in the fall/winter in Japan and in the following spring/summer elsewhere. So, most likely, it'll only release in Japan next year. Not too surprising, since they usually need 1-3 years to move to a new handheld. (G/S released in 1999/2000, R/S released in 2002/2003, D/P in 2006/2007)

LOLWUT for Pilotwings.
And F*UCK @ Mario Kart and NSMB returning in chart AGAIN.

Now, 3DS specific corner: What Sinobi says through Google Translator

If this level within the range of error.
Dedicated attention is soft, "Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of 3D time" of 3.2 million copies,
"Nintendogs + cats" 1.5 million copies, "One Piece Unlimited Cruise SP" Until recently hit 1.2 million units from launch title, the number is growing overall sales.
Be transferred to the lower eye, "Star Fox 64 3D" "Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask"
"Tales of the Abyss" and ranked one after another.
Effect has appeared in stores, such as major mass has been increased to the normal price across the board was selling titles at a bargain price cuts before the body.

3DS is a body that is scarce or there is some in stock for only the number of major corporations is also part of this weekend. Those who are not selling in the neighborhood,
Have a look in the big stores that Nintendo has had great products.
Being said, Amazon will stock all colors (5% OFF Deal)
I would like to know if they are talking only about Obon week, or also about THIS week, as it could seem in the second part of the post.
No news about PS3 performance, though... Azalyn said something like not so hot, but I could be wrong...

Stumpokapow had written a detailed analysis analysis some years ago but we couldn't find it then and we won't find it now that search is gone.

The process of a shipment is very complicated. You must count the size of the publisher, the size of the retailer, the game, the period it comes out, the system it comes out.

To give you an example of unpredictable conditions Nintendo stopped giving additional shipments of Mario Galaxy to retailers that lowered its price early trying to sell the initial stock.
Ah ok, i see. Thanks :)

What is it about Pilotwings? :) It probably sold around 3-4k, nothing too surprising in my opinion after the huge hardware bump.

Not too surprising when the 8th placed PS2 game only sold 75 copies in May, with PES in first only selling 3,640. The only upcoming PS2 game is PES again, I wonder if that will be the last Japanese PS2 release (excluding budget re-releases). It's a shame that they never replaced the PS2 chart with another platform.

You are talking about this right?
この程度ならば誤差の範囲内。
注目は専用ソフトで、「ゼルダの伝説 時のオカリナ 3D」が3.2万本、
「nintendogs+cats」が1.5万本、「ワンピース アンリミテッドクルーズSP」が1.2万本と
ロンチタイトルから最近のヒット作まで、総じて販売数が伸びている。
下位に目を移しても、「スターフォックス64 3D」「レイトン教授と奇跡の仮面」
「テイルズ オブ ジ アビス」などが続々ランクイン。
店頭でも効果は表れており、大手量販などでは、本体の値下げ前まで
特価で販売していたタイトルが軒並み通常価格まで引き上げられている。

品薄になっている3DS本体だが、今週末にも一部有力法人のみを対象に
若干数の入荷があるとか。近所に売っていないという方は、
任天堂商品を大きく扱っている大型店舗に覗いてみては。
と言いつつ、Amazonは全色在庫あり(しかも5%OFF)
If you are, then Google Translator is doing a pretty good job, other than the fact that "million" should be "ten-thousand". It's just saying Zelda sold 32,000, Nintendogs 15,000, One Piece 12,000. Then Star Fox 64 3D, Layton and Tales of the Abyss also ranked. It's also saying that 3DS is a bit low in stock in retail, but is being restocked over the weekend.

Just to be a bit more clear: it's also stating that all the games that were at clearance prices have returned to normal,

and that The big electronic stores are receiving small amount of shipments over the weekend, so if you can't find 3ds at your local store go to the big stores. (it goes along with some other retailers saying that some wholesalers were out of stock for the weekend)

Yeah, I was talking about that, especially the second part, because the first one is also represented in the charts.
The part about 3DS bit low in stock is what I wanted to know more, thanks!

probably 3DS games put PS3 and PSP ones out of the table. so maybe nothing to see here.
Just a desert mirage.

Yeah, the Media-Create sales data is just a desert mirage. Now the Comgnet preorder rankings, that's where it's at.
He has a point, ToX is going to sell a lot. So it may mean that they are just not making any major games for PS3 currently, however, I believe there are no other major releases (of this caliber) for this year, are there? How big is Dark Souls?

Dark Souls should do 250k-300k LTD for Japan, should be a 100-150 launch.
The original did 150-200k LTD with crazy legs.

Tales of Xillia, Sep 8
Dark Souls, Sep 22
FFXIII-2, Dec


Not sure what's in between.

PS3 dead again?
Looking at the numbers, PS3 is the weirdest console ever. It sells 20k every week with no notable releases. SCE needs to fund some titles for it. The other branches buy studios left and right while SCEJ lets PD and Team ICO do whatever they want; well I guess PD(sales) and Udea(greatness) deserve it but still. Japan must have some cool, up and coming studios to buy or partner up with.

With "Best" release it did 230k according to Famitsu, 270k according to M-Create. 250k-300k for Dark Souls seems reasonable.

I was thinking to myself how weak this year may be in terms of million sellers.

Right now, MHP3 is the only one assured (currently at 991k). But that's a 2010 release. For 2011 releases, the possibilities seem to be:

- XIII-2
- MK7
- SM3DL
- RHWii

(BW seem unlikely -- currently at 351k.)

Last time things were as weak was in 2005. Still, 2005 had 17 games over 500k.

Code:
Year  #  Top selling

1996  2  1,663,861 [NGB] Pokemon Red / Green / Blue (Nintendo)
1997  6  3,995,992 [NGB] Pokemon Red / Green / Blue (Nintendo)
1998  5  3,006,067 [NGB] Pokemon Red / Green / Blue / Yellow (Nintendo)
1999  6  3,628,627 [NGB] Pokemon Gold / Silver (Nintendo)
2000  5  3,784,682 [PS1] Dragon Quest VII: Fighters of Eden (Enix)
2001  4  2,264,047 [PS2] Final Fantasy X (Square)
2002  3  3,197,762 [GBA] Pokemon Ruby / Sapphire (Pokemon Co.)
2003  4  1,941,727 [PS2] Final Fantasy X-2 (Square Enix)
2004  6  3,231,288 [PS2] Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (Square Enix)
2005  3  1,169,757 [NDS] Animal Crossing: Wild World (Nintendo)
2006  9  4,302,815 [NDS] Pokemon Diamond / Pearl (Pokemon Co.)
2007 10  1,911,520 [WII] Wii Sports (Nintendo)
2008  7  2,452,111 [PSP] Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (Capcom)
2009  7  4,100,968 [NDS] Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies (Square Enix)
2010  7  4,914,813 [NDS] Pokemon Black / White (Pokemon Co.)

# = Number of million sellers.

No news about PS3 performance, though... Azalyn said something like not so hot, but I could be wrong...
What did it say exactly?

Beam said:
Does anyone here think that the PS3 might sell between 30-40k because of MH3HD?
If it doesn't do at least 30K then the price drop is a major failure in Japan.

My bitter me would really like to see XIII-2 struggling to break a million.

Type 0 could become a million-seller, though.
I don't think either one will be a million seller, but we'll see.

cvxfreak said:
So, any ideas on when or if Nintendo releases the new Wii model in Japan?

Would be the perfect time to drop the price.
What's the next big game coming out?
