I feel like this M&L game will be the worst performing in the series.
Then again it is coming out near christmas right...

EDIT:
In line of random predictions

I don't know how Mario Tennis usually does, but I'll guess a 30k opening.
Same for Star Fox, so I'll guess a 50k opening.
60k for FE#.
12k opening for Lego
25k for Disney Infinity
35k for Yokai Dance

all of these are uneducated guesses from someone how has feelings about video games. I'm an expert of nothing and my debates and stuff are sometimes partially wrong. ;)
The original Disney Infinity (2 didn't seem to release in Japan) was Wii U & 3DS exclusive and flopped heavily. I think it sold like 9K maybe?

That makes Minecraft the best selling Vita game now, right?

now I want to know by how much it's #1
I guess so. Also it is very unlikely another game will top this.
The platform split adds another good reason to the SE's decision of releasing DQ Builders to all PS platforms.

So RF4 has sold 250,000... I wish they would stop torturing us(me) and just announce RF5 already.

Does that team even exist these days? I think its about time for a new Harvest Moon game to be announced soon though.

I would be very surprised if P5 sold better on PS4. That would be a pleasant surprise.
After almost two years in the curent gen and considering the main audience for games like Persona, there is nothing to be surprised about, actually that´s pretty much expected by anyone with a minimal sense of the current trends in the market.

Okay, here we go.

2012:



2015:


As far as I can tell, they essentially found a product that was hitting it off well with teenage girls and decided to invest in a different series targeted at them by the same team, and that product may still very well be a Hatsune Miku game.

This seems like a push for growth among that audience, since you don't dump a series to go after something you think will sell less.
this sounds like they're happy with mirai performance, and they're gonna still gonna persue that demo, could be hatsune with a different kind of gameplay or the same rhythm game with another brand/hatsune spinoff

both has the same chance of happening imo

Any chance the Wii U outsells the PS4 this week?
theres a bundle right? theres a chance but i don't think ps4 will drop low enough for it to happen

I expect the split to be fairly even actually, but I'm hoping to be proven wrong.

i'd be surprised if anything that isn't niche sells less on the ps4 here on out

Well from next week PS4 will drop like rock so..
Usually, on Amazon JP, PS4 1TB version is in TOP 15, some times even in TOP 10, and the White PS4 is in TOP 50.
After the pricedrop annunced, PS4 1TB version is already out of TOP 20, and PS4 white is nearly out of TOP 100...

that's seem legit, the sales will rise again after the pricedrop.

Monster Hunter bombed, Mario Maker did as expected, Wii U beat PS4. Interesting week overall there.

Steep drop for PS4, according to MC. It would've been better if it was more around 23 to 25k. Also...is that Vita under 10,000 after ages?

I hoped MM would do better. Ah well, did good nonetheless for a Wii U game.
It's first week sales are pretty irrelevant and most people predicted just under 150k. It should do well long term, and that is what matters for this series/type of game.
