Hmm? Why did the 3DS go up this week? I doubt it was River City Ransom SP, and Pokémon Sun and Moon is too far away. I guess it's the usual payday "boost"?

Two copies sold? That's not a bomb guys, stop trolling!!!

Japan more interested in consoles again than handhelds - good sign tbh
I'd say it's more like the result of 3DS being such an old device on the market now and with such a huge installed base. Especially considering how the week-to-week difference between the two isn't that big to begin with.

Actually, Famitsu has had a slight advantage for 3DS in some recent weeks. Again, 2-3ks of difference at most, IIRC
 
#14
First time I've ever read the whole hardware chart (usually just check top two and then laugh at Xbox One (which in fairness is doing incredible well right now))... didn't realize the OG 3DS was so dead and that N3DS/2DS made the bulk of the sales.

I sort of thought N3DS died in a whimper.

Guess I was completely wrong.
 
#17
Not too bad for SAO and WFF! Honestly expected better for Berserk. Not a lot but still...

Lol at the posts about console gaming being alive again, we're far from there yet. 3DS is just super old and still selling that much at saturation point, PS4 doing only as much just points how bad the market is and how there's still not enough compelling titles on it.
 
#20
I'm surprised both WoFF and SAO are ranked higher on PS4 than Vita. The difference (at least for SAO) is small enough to where Famitsu or Dengeki might swap them around, though. Usually the Vita versions have better legs, but SAO: HR on Vita sure is a production ...

Probably going to get skewered for the comparison but, comparing the FF spin offs, WoFF did 100k on a 8.6 million installbase, FF: Explorers did 160k FW on a 17.6 mill installbase. So WoFF did better relative to installbase.

Fair results all around I think, with one of the most terrible humiliation possible for Berserk.

I wish I could be angry against Japan for ignoring this hard the first Berserk game since the PS2, but... no, I can't possibly blame anyone for not being excited by a muso : /

Relativity doesn't pay the bills.

Well, the only title I would say did really poor is Berserk. WoFF could have obviously done better but it looks to be an okay amount. It is something. Nice hold for BF1 and PS4 at 30K.

Also, my comment from the old thread -

MH on Switch and PS4. If the plan is getting that western market, it seems obvious to me. It goes with what I've been saying that these Japanese franchises should go multiplat. This is assuming it is possible, of course, because the situation is complex and it isn't just, "Okay, move X game to everything under the sun!".

100k is not great, not terrible... I think adjusted for total install base it's about on par with FFEX (160k two years ago - E: no it's actually ahead someone did that math - and a little ahead of something like Theatrhythm. I think it's pretty up there on the echelon of modern FF spinoffs but something like Dissidia smashed with nearly 500k opening week. Even Lightning Returns was 250k on as many PS3s.

I was about to ask if those Berserk numbers are as terrible as I think they are, but it seems like that's the case.

BF1 had a smaller drop than I would expect.

This week had a metric ton of releases, wow. And hardware went up accordingly!

Games don't make money based on their ratios, they make money based on their sales.

WoFF was and is a confused product, and it sold less than a predecessor spin-off for (very likely) a higher investment.

You're right and in Japan it did sell worse, but I wouldn't be surprised if it sells a lot more in the west than Explorers did (though it didn't do well in the UK, maybe in other western territories...). Maybe not though and I'm completely wrong. But I agree that it is a confused product in the first place.

But can it end the year at #1?
Won't Pokémon Sun & Moon sell some extra hardware? This game is a potential goliath and might boost the sales for one last time. Could as well be that "everybody" already has a 3DS and Pokémon is not gonna move much. Except for double dippers that collect SE hardware. We'll see.

WoFF is aimed at kids but its selling point is based on characters nostalgia that kids couldn't possibly have. I honestly expected it to do worse.

It also released on platform where the kids market is not particularly there. I don't think it would have done much better on the 3ds though.
