TEW XB1 > TEW 360? Really low attach rate on X360, userbase doesn't seem active or (maybe more likely) X360 owners are hardcore and own many other systems.

I think it's unfair we start it at week 40. From week 41 onwards its basically even.

At least the PS4 will have a decent start in February with Bloodborne and DQH.

A price drop to coincide with that would be smart. They should take the approach MS is taking in NA and start getting aggressive.

Really hope it gets a price drop. It seems like a good enough window of opportunity, and Resident Evil Res2 + Neptune VII are also coming out early next year as well.

If the baseline is 8k a week, that's 32k a month, which is 384k per year, not even 500k. When Wii U was selling 8k a week it was a hilarious joke, daily sustenance for Nintendo haters.

8k a week isn't decent. It's an undeniable crisis for console gaming in Japan. If someone can't do something to get that country interested in consoles again, we're looking at dark times, apocalyptic twinkie stuff.
Well it is a baseline rather than an average. If both of them spend a whole year hovering around their baselines then you can prepare those joint apartments for cats and dogs.

It's a shame that the start of 2015 starting lineup is looking like this:

Wii U
01/22  Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Isn't Yoshi also Q1?

Do you really think Reve Unitia Will sell over 2x its FW? It'll be lucky if it reaches 100.000 (I suppose it's the first shipment).
It's a bad over shipment no doubt but then so is Evil Within and people seem to think that title did well for some reason.

#126 on Amazon and 40% off.

I'm not trying to push my posts as facts, as LA seems to be suggesting, but seriously, let's wake up and face reality.
I know, we are looking at <10.000 second week for sure so that's why I said that it'll be lucky to reach 100.000 LTD (maybe with the bomba bin help).

Yeah, Evil WIthin was overshipped too (at least the PS4 version) and it didn't do well despite what some people say but that's not an excuse for the poor performance of the Tales game (I still think that there'll be more handheld Tales titles, be it 3DS or Vita).

Did you read the 'all things considered' part?, it wont stay at 8k, it will get better, much better next year with all the third party support.

This is just a down or bad week. But I think it's like this every year around this time. Either way, yikes at everything not 3DS, and I still find that below expectations.

All things considered that's actually a pretty decent line-up for the first 3 months.

If PSV Tales of could double first week's numbers, then I don't see why Reve Unitia shouldn't, being on a higher userbase and well positioned for Winter holidays. Of course it will drop next week, but so did the other Tales of games, and then they had twice the debut's numbers.

Is that baseball game good? Odd Konami never bothered to make an English release of it...
It's pretty well known in Japan. There are also different versions of it, like a manager game and one where you play a pitcher/batter etc. Add to that the fact that it has been around since SNES times...so, yeah.

That is an awesome as hell library. I wonder if it'll be enough to push the market over towards PS4 though. If Dragon Quest was only on PS4 that would definitely be enough but despite bundling I feel the PS3 may hold it back from that. But Bloodborne I think will also do quite well (I'm optimistically predicting a debut of around 200k) and get the ball rolling and all the other titles will just add to that momentum. Hopefully it'll be enough.

Monster Hunter 4G is half a million units behind Monster Hunter 4 launch aligned, digital sales are still unknown.

It's worth noting that Monster Hunter 4 was still severely supply constrained, sell-through in its third week was 99%, supply issues lasted until its fifth week. This doesn't seem to be the case for Monster Hunter 4G.

I'm quite surprised the Vita version of Jikkyou hoovered up so many extra sales just because the PSP version doesn't exist anymore (it nearly double last year's FW sales, iirc?)

Those Tales of numbers are... okay. To be honest, I don't care if future escort titles come to 3DS or Vita (both performances are equally average really), as long as they don't switch to mobile. And I hope these numbers are enough to convince Namco of that.

Really hope it gets a price drop. It seems like a good enough window of opportunity, and Resident Evil Res2 + Neptune VII are also coming out early next year as well.
I hope this lineup pushes ps4 to an acceptable sales level, but even if it doesn't its still awesome.

Price drop is good but Sony can still do great with 2015 because of their line up and they need this money more to recover completely as a Sony. We can expect a price drop around holidays 2015 at least (or) if microsoft do a permanent price cut for xbox one to 350$ then sony may bring the cut early to match them to remove the xbox advantage.

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

Anyone get the feeling Zelda is going to be nudged into 2016?
No way in hell they will launch Zelda in 2015 - they will drop Majoras Mask 3D next year and say they need more development time for Zelda U. Which is fine....

Though if they can deliver it next year and still have big games to look forward to for 2016 - well good for them, just dont see it happen.
