Not according to either tracker, Famitsu numbers were just combined above.

Also DQX lol. So much for unprecedented demand - more like a complete fuck up by SE.

That 'unprecedented demand' was just a sneaky twist by websites like Siliconera.

50k is actually a lot, considering they had to stop shipping new copies, and like hisha-kun reported, it sold out during the very first day. Let's not forget it's a subscription-based MMO on the 3DS. I was expecting 30k max, and with the full 4 days, not just the first one.

There weren't any big releases, really. What like, Plants vs. Zombies? Eh.

The Japanese market reacts when things are on shelves, not just when they're announced at conferences. I didn't think there'd be anything behind a coincidental increase. We'll see the increases in the form of bumps when the announced games are released.

Let's also not forget it's not really a game, more like a streamed one.

PS4 rise? I guess some fanboys waited for the XBO release to show their favorite console
;p

People were expecting a bump, which is why I pointed that out.

And your point isn't quite correct: I clearly remember the 3DS getting a noticeable bump right after MH3G was announced.

Indeed, that one specific counterexample about the most popular console and a god-tier series overwrites the more common pattern for sure.
