That's quite the rough weeks... All new games sold poorly, though that's not really a surprise.

And man, it's been a while since we've had so few 3DS games in the Top 20.

everything is low. even the 3DS
why the (insignificant) Wii U(MK8 increase?
Software-wise, those three are strong, indeed.

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

Nintendo needs to do something about the regular New 3DS.

I believe family games like Pokémon ORAS and Youkai Watch 2.5 will give it a nice push, but I'm not sure.
 
#19
Seeing that MH, Yokai Watch and Smash are still the top 3. What will be the game that's likely to knock one of them out of the top 3? Will it be Pokemon?

05./03. [PS3] The Evil Within <ADV> (Bethesda Softworks) {2014.10.23} (¥6.264) - 15.982 / 75.370 (-73%)
12./04. [PS4] The Evil Within <ADV> (Bethesda Softworks) {2014.10.23} (¥7.884) - 5.393 / 64.597 (-91%)

Damn.
 
#28
It's pretty fascinating how differently Japanese customers buy cross gen games compared to west. Usually around 50/50 first week and then PS3 version usually has better legs and ends up with more sales. In west aside from FIFA pretty much every cross gen games is something like 80/20 split for current gen.
 
#33
Original 3DS beat Wii U... That's sad.

The Mk8 bundle isn't as good as the bundle last year. Hopefully it has a good effect.
 
#35
The Vita YoY tale will be told over the next four weeks, I reckon. That 120k buffer is nice, but it's sitting around 10k, instead of the 30k from last year. Then you've got the 90k week 46 looming in the distance, which will eat a huge chunk of that buffer.

My goodness, it's edge of the seat stuff. Gripping.

09./05. [3DS] Tales of the World: Reve Unitia <RPG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2014.10.23} (¥5.627) - 9.491 / 63.394 <60-80%> (-82%)
I was surprised TotW didn't drop more, sincerly. Especially given how it seems to be crappy.

If the N3DS is not supply constrained then these are "not so good" numbers.

And tales and Evil within (PS4) to the bomba bin as predicted last week. Bad week

The Vita YoY tale will be told over the next four weeks, I reckon. That 120k buffer is nice, but it's sitting around 10k, instead of the 30k from last year. Then you've got the 90k week 46 looming in the distance, which will eat a huge chunk of that buffer.
Vita will be down YoY, I'm sure about that.

I don't know. I'd actually say those numbers are good (even if I was hoping for better numbers, to be honest...still), considering this is the 4th week on the market for the new version + old 3DS stock still being sold (it didn't drop almost at all). Moreover, I think New 3DS XL dropped more last week because this week there's this

Releasing this Saturday

Oh. Just realised there was the Smash Direct during that week. Might explain why Wii U sales rose by 400 units instead of dropping below 4k.

And this Saturday, there's the Smash N3DSLL (no game though).

Let's call it "Xander Mobius-boost"

Or Xander Mobioost.

Down or up, Vita will sell about the same as last year.

Basically, it survived, but everything Sony did in 2013 was futile.
