I see that Battlefront has already started dropping in price very quickly at amazon. Retailers better hope movie bump will exist if they ordered big amounts.

I'll take over again threads creation from tomorrow by the way,

Couldn't see the lack of jaggies on my phone, just saw the resolution was right. With 3DS screenshots, just add jagged edges if they're not there - except maybe for Revelations because the anti-aliasing is that good. But the rest (models, textures, resolution) is the same. It's not a low-effort game. Even Nintendo games have aliasing, so it's not a mark of low production values.

Street Fighter V will be getting some interesting promotions in Japan, first one is with a sumo company or whatever.

All the others are with Scalp D which is a company that makes products for hair growth/prevent hair loss.

--------------------------

On a side note, Nintendo is selling stand alone GamePads in Japan, through their store only, they make it clear, not anywhere else.

http://onlineshop.nintendo.co.jp/shop/item_detail?category_id=170033&item_id=1877914

Quick recap, no more than one gamepads can be connected to a system at the same time and the controller is not compatible with the original Wii.

The most interesting aspect of all is that price, 13.824 yen (including taxes) that's close to $115 dollars and almost half of the price of the cheapest SKU.

So yeah, if there was any doubt, what inflates the price of the WiiU so much is the controller.

Yeah, I know it. Hiska said it, iicr. But, it continues to amaze me how Japan loves holidays.

Japan is probably one of the countries with more national holidays. But on the other side, they work overtime the rest of the days of the year, and long holidays aren't frequent, being golden week and new year's eve the longest ones (and that's just a week).

Btw, from November 23rd national holiday, is when Christmas shopping season starts.

There shouldn't have been, haha. Aside from the screen, there's a cutting edge 5GHz transceiver in there that has nigh frame-perfect 60FPS streaming. That is some kickass tech.

Its (sadly) the only console with anything cutting edge about it. It just so happens to be a noose at the same time!

No. The reason is Splatoon + people breaking their gamepads playing Splatoon. Splatoon is serious shit.

Very nice opening for Battlefront! Expected around 100k.
Hardware a little bit below what I thought it would do, but not bad.

PS4 has so many japanese system sellers in 2016. It should be an amazing year.

From the top of my head:

- Final Fantasy XV
- World of Final Fantasy
- Dissidia Final Fantasy (very likely)
- Kingdom Hearts 2.8
- Dragon Quest XI (maybe 2017)
- Dragon Quest Builders
- Dragon Quest Heroes 2
- Nier Automata
- Star Ocean 5
- Gran Turismo Sports
- The Last Guardian
- Gravity Rush 2
- New Minna no Golf
- Level-5 & Sony Collaboration Project (maybe 2017)
- Street Fighter V
- Yakuza 6
- Yakuza 1 Remake
- New Valkyria
- Dark Souls 3
- Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
- King of Fighters XIV
- Ni-Oh
- Tales of Berseria
- Persona 5
- Tekken 7
- One Piece Burning Blood
- Resident Evil Zero HD
- Resident Evil 7 (very likely IMO)
- Devil May Cry 5 (very likely IMO)

And probably some others I am forgetting! Add to that big western hitters like Uncharted 4 and COD!
This is pretty much better than any year during last gen and several years during PS2's era as well. If they were to sell 3 million next year, that would be a pretty amazing result but even that's doubtful. :\

Are you talking specifically about Sony platforms? Because DS and 3DS had pretty amazing years in terms of sales sw-wise.

If console could pull off handheld sales since japan slowly crept up to the mobile market and devoured it, I would faint.
