duckroll has informed me that next week's Famitsu will have:

1.) A 36 page feature on new Marvelous games.
2.) A 21 page first-half feature on Bandai Namco's TGS games.
3.) Separately, Dengeki PlayStation will have a 50+ page coverage of the Sony event.
I hoped to see someone translate what was posted on Hokanko's blog.

One of those Marvelous games will certainly be Senran Kagura: Estival Versus for PS consoles. If for "new", they literally mean not-announced-yet, I suppose we'll see things also for other consoles (including Nintendo one/ones).

Great, I'll be looking forward to the next famitsu news then.

Wow. That is a lot of software that is nowhere to be found on PS4. A lot of the games that people were buying during the first six months of PS2 and PS3 haven't even been announced for PS4.

You've got:

-Japanese Wrestling game
-Armored Core (or any From Software game)
-Street Fighter (and EX3 was a shitty spin off. They couldn't even get a shitty spin off out?)
-Dynasty Warriors
-Japanese Baseball game
-Dead or Alive
-Kessen (lets just say Koei game)
-Tekken
-Ridge Racer
-Virtua Fighter (So many fighting games. What's going on with fighting games in 2014?)
-Mobile Suit Gundam

As far as I know, the only games announced for PS4 that are even remotely related to the list above is Tekken 7 (2015), Bloodborne (A From Software title, 2015), and Guilty Gear (A fighting game, 2014). I understand that with mobile/handheld domination in Japan, it's probably not worth the effort to even try and make sequels to the games listed above on PS4, but still. It's a damn shame.

Instead, during the first 6 months of PS4, the only games released that are really aimed at the Japanese market have been:

-MGS V demo (also on PS3)
-Yakuza (also on PS3)
-FIFA 14 (also on PS3)
-Final Fantasy XIV (also on PS3)

That's kinda pathetic.
I think thats just how the entire gaming industry is going, lesser and lesser releases. Pretty sure chris or niro or one the regulars posted the japan game output of each gen just in Japan over the 6th gen till now and the out decreased by a big big number and you can see evidence thats occurring in usa as well and im sure europe. Between rising costs and I think focus on fewer ip, I think thats just the way the industry is now for better or worse.

  • Excluding Mr. Swine's prediction of 65,000 for Yokai Watch 2, the minimum is 750,000.
  • Wii Sports Club is missing on week of sales, but the maximum it can have sold is 4,690, which doesn't change anything.
  • Removing Yokai Watch 2 (due to its sales being the biggest deciding factor), mpl90 still wins by mean error %, but hiska-kun wins by units.
  • In average, this month we were pretty bad, with the exception of Atelier Shallie.

Next thread you'll be able to predict for September - Smash Bros. 3DS month.



Wow, that's a lot of releases. Is there something special happening around that day, or did they all chose August 28 by coincidence?

It's going to be a good week for PSV, it seems.
The last week of every month is filled with releases due to it being the monthly salary pay week.

The 28th is just a Thursday, the day 99.9% of the releases happen every week.

Congratulations twice to:

- Mpl90, for winning by units and mean error %!
We all got the maximum penalty (200% error if I recall correctly) with Wii Sports Club, what a disaster! I thought I had learned the lesson when I massively overestimate Wii Fit U, but it is evident I did not because this time I have done it even worse.

My prediction:

Wii Fit U - 99.000
Wii Sports Club - 22.000

Results:

Wii Fit U - 13.631 (I was wrong by 626%)
Wii Sports Club - 2.566 (I was wrong by 757%)

Wonder what TGS games Namco has.

More info on Tekken 7 and that CC2 game is what I expect.

Maybe that Naruto game will come to PS4 as well since I remember an image where they had ps4 controllers at the event.

Gundam Breaker 2, various other stuff. The Bandai part of the company will have a lot of licensed garbage.
