Do any of the Japanese trackers provide data for the face plates?

Interests me to see how much of an extra revenue stream it has created. It was an interesting strategy to give a somewhat exclusive feature to the SKU that sell less in an attempt to create more interest and also extra profits.

The cheapest one is circa 9 U.S., the ones with more exotic materials go aprox. to even 20. Maybe there are some decent margins in there.

I think You-Kai getting popular is good thing for Pokemon fans, having competition means Nintendo & GameFreak will have bigger budget for Pokemon games, so they don't lose any potential customer.

Sell through is just for games that are released on Thursdays.

But probably not enough shipment for PKM, and not moving that kind of hardware, but Christmas is here.
Oh okay thanks! Really? I thought Nintendo would of at least shipped 2 million copies?

I blame the Youkais & Sammy!

Youkai Watch is definitely eating into Pokemon's targeted audience - battle of the titans. But you are kidding yourself if that means a bigger budget for Pokemon games lol! :p

Thanks very much hiska kun.

I'm a musou fan so interested in how DW8 Empires is doing. Not too bad sell through for an empires game. But I'm really not expecting the opening week sales to be above 70k cumulative total.

GamesMaya's report:

- Pokemon ORAS in perfect form today Saturday. Alpha Sapphire is selling a little better, just as pre-orders showed.
It's very popular between adults. They were kids when they played the original game and now they've grown.
- Assassin's Creed Unity selling well. It's moving PS4 hardware with Call of Duty.
- Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires for PS3 is next.
- The rest of the games have low sales.

These 2 statements contradict each other.

Now waiting when Famitsu decides to give an early report, Tuesday or Wednesday, if we don't get a 2 million intial shipment first.

Nintendo should release a press release Monday as they did for X & Y release.

Well I hope atleast.

I guess PS4 is stealing audience from x360 in Japan as western games console.
The western audience had already moved to PS3 years ago. PS4 seems to be more pulling from that.

The 360 audience left seems to be mostly Otaku into VNs, bullethell shooters and dungeon crawlers. I don't know where they'll go, probably split between One and Vita?

Media Create had said preorders of OR/AS could top X/Y, analysts last week expect it to top X/Y sales and sinobi said his final preorders were very close to X/Y. It will top previous remakes openings and we have to wait how close it will come matching HG/SS LTD sales which were the highest for a Pokemon remake (4m).

It seems we have another XY situation. Pokemon is fully available, I guess Nintendo shipped more than 2 millions, then.

Tomorrow monday is a national holiday.

So...

ORAS: Its Week 2 numbers will equal the Week 2 numbers of XY.
PS Nova: Week 1 will be less than 1/2 of GE2's Week 1 sales.
EO2U: Will have a higher Week 1 than EO1U's Week 1.

I got that right?
