Damn, that New Game! game on PSV bombed something fierce... not that it had any chance of selling well anyway, but still.

Well well. Horrible for Resi. And not great from UnPS either, but could be worse considering it's just a port iirc.

The two Bamco licenced games did horribly too, lol.

It did better than the Captain Earth game at least, rofl.

That almost reach the lowest open week for RE main entry ( If I remember it right the only one that is lower than that was original RE when it first release in 1996 ). Compare to RE6 opening ( around 600k I believe ) , that is almost 60% declined!

Good to see RE7 top 1, it was expected though. But I don't know if those are good number since I don't remember how much the previous titles sold on their first week.

Anyone has the info on that?

I really want everyone to know how much more Titanfall 2 sold than Nioh. It was a staggering amount.

Blame Re7 waifu isn't cute enough?

Anything on the horizon that could do well on PS4 in Japan? Nioh I guess? Nier Automata maybe. Horizon Zero Dawn?
Nier may sold more than Re7 as anime boys love it.
Nioh not good in COMG, Aloy isn't a "waifu" so...

Why is anyone surprised about RE7? Does it look like something that would appeal to people in Japan? Actually, does it look like something that would appeal to anyone? Positioning of the game was a disaster with all that first person hillbilly family stuff.

I'm sure someone will give you that data soon. But to make it simple, the highest open week for RE series was RE2 which open at 1.3 million copies ....

Commenting =/= surprised

PS4 sales are pretty solid.

I agree that it's not really aimed at the Japanese market, but it was critically well-received and sold well WW, no?

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

PS4 still up year on year this week again. Looks like the Switch presentation and the opening of preorders did not affect the sales here.
Why would it ? None of the Q1 PS4 games are being released on Switch during the launch. You need a PS4 for all the 3rdParty titles - this aint changing anytime soon.

Ouch...not the best sales for RE7.
After SFV the next kinda lackluster performance with a big current-gen IP.

They better not mess up the Monster Hunter transition to the next systems after 3DS.
Monster Hunter Double Cross is the next guaranteed underperforming game.

Well, for RE7 we have to see what kind of legs it has. Word of mouth is positive so far.

I think Revelation sold around 150k first week on 3DS.


Yeah, a game that has trouble selling on 4m installed base will sell well on a system with a installed base of 0.
Cool, that's still a big blow though.

PS4 still up year on year this week again. Looks like the Switch presentation and the opening of preorders did not affect the sales here.
Switch will probably only outsell PS4 for about four weeks or so.

Sure, but that's on the new platform, new smaller audience.

I don't expect RE7 to do very well in japan judging from the Japanese gamer taste, but it still carry RE name, it shouldn't be this low. And it's on PS4, the main system for this series since the birth of god.

True, it also doesnt help that Sony still has issues with the PSVR demand, when Capcom just provided its first killer app.

What are the expectations for MH XX ? People were already pissed that MH4 to MH4G didnt have a cheaper upgrade method other than buying a new full price game. So yeah this probably the release were even MH fans might just pass it. Most are ready for the next generation....

I expect modest success for all those games, none feel like they will sell over expectations, but I guess Nier has a chance.

Glad to see PS4 numbers up from last year.

I bet it was the first-person perspective more than anything that led to those lacklustre Resi7 sales. I read somewhere years back that Japanese games in general aren't too hot on first person compared to the rest of the world.
