- Good numbers for Pokémon (forgot MC counted dual-packs separately).
- Ok numbers for the 3DS (could've sold more)
- Captain Toad not giving up just yet.
- Taiko doing ok, and should do much better during the holidays... Pretty much the same as last year, from the looks of it. Hmm, I forgot it sold a tad better last year during its FW.
- Wii U back in the coffin, it seems.

Bad hold for One Pîece 3DS.

PSV:

YTD 2014: 1.013.704
YTD 2013: 990.894

Just 23k to cross the streams. It's shocking how PSV is selling in November... Shocking for the second best-selling platform and the one that is receiving the most support nowadays.
I know this is you trolling but PSV hasn't had a week with decent releases since 2 months ago (Sen No Kiseki 2 and Danganronpa).

Welp, PSV is slowly dying once again. HW numbers pretty unimpressive all around.
Good numbers for "secondary" titles like DW8 and AC:U I guess.
Great for Pokemon, wonder what the Famitsu numbers will show.

Sorry, I sincerely didn't want to troll. It has been shown, though, that PSV got a lot of support. The problem, as already explained a few times, is that most of the release don't impact hw sales. More worrying, though, is that also big releases don't affect hw sales much; in August, there were two 100k sellers in the same week, and PSV hw sales barely moved.

This doesn't change that 10k units in November are a very poor showing.

What made Vita sell that amount in 2013? From what I remember, Vita had some pretty good games this year and a new model in like February?

PS3 version sold almost 4 times more. Seems like Musou fans won't be leaving PS3 any time soon.

Vita needs to average somewhere around 40k per week to stay over 2013 (over the next 5 weeks). Doesn't look likely. I guess it'll be at least another 2 weeks before it drops below last year (unless it sells less than 2 or 3k next week).

Gripping stuff, man.

3DS

YTD 2014 : 2.373.610
YTD 2013 : 4.071.538

It's shocking how the leader of the market despite a double shocking new revision is selling (shockingly) poor.
Shocking that even if two of the top seller games in Japan has been released this year, the shocking Pokemon and MH, sales are almost the half of the previous shocking year.

That's definitively shocking...

good for Pokemon, while everything else is depressing. I'd just notice that PS4 is not doing SO bad, with almost no dedicated software.

Hmm... is it me, or... for FW, it seems western games get a better PS4 to PS3 ratio?

So is that 4mill figure the 3DS numbers up to this same point in time last year? I thought it might have had December thrown in there as well or something.

That is a horrendous drop.

10k units in November is an awful showing. Vita is in an awful situation support-wise and it shows.

Also, 100k sellers aren't big releases for any system and don't improve hardware sales that much unless there's a hardware bundle or the system has just been released. If you expect sales to improve 100% from one week to another with the release of those "big" games you are being delusional.

For example this week with a truly massive release the 3DS only improved 35% week over week. In those weeks where Vita HW barely moved as you say, there were 30-40% increases.

I tend to disagree.

100k+ sellers are important when the platform has still a limited userbase, such as PSV. It was common to see 100k+ sellers moving PSV hw sales during its first and second year (e.g. Persona 4, Hatsune Miku, Toukiden). Within the PSV ecosystem, 100k+ sellers are big sellers, in fact. Of course, I don't expect twice the sales, but when the baseline is already lower, I think it's reasonable to expect a bigger increase with respect to a platform that is already selling 60k units on a weekly basis. Also, such games should have a greater impact when the installed base is 3m with respect to it is 16m; this is a quite common trend in products lifecycle.

The problem, though, reminds a vicious circle. I try to explain it better; some software houses found a good market on PSV; in fact, many games are selling nicely for what they are. But no one is taking risk on the platform; once a software house saw what it's selling, they keep releasing the same stuffs over and over. This occurs a bit less on other platforms. My fear is that this situation will keep repeating every year until PSV's successor will be announced (if any), without allowing the platform to really succeed. We are saying that PSV is a niche console, and it's fair; but overall sw sales are a bit worrying if you compare with other niche platforms such as the DC or the GC. The top seller is just around 400k...

Of course, Sony played a role, given its abysmal support.

Your facts are correct, your presumptions are wrong. Vita has shown time and time again that when big software is released for it it jumps up. The problem Vita is having this year is that the games released for it and all very similar to each other and in a similar genre. As such the audience that is buying these games already has a vita. Basically, Vita has reached a saturation point for its market.

Now there's three things that can be done:
1. Price cut- SCEJA might assume that the saturation for Vita's market is at its price point right now and drop the price,allowing more people to jump in. I doubt it'd have a long term impact as Vita software borderlines on the niche which is not often affected by the price that much.
2. Increase the market for the Vita- easier said than done and would require an effort similar to what Sony did with the Vita last year to attract support. And considering that you're doing with the PS4 this is doubtful. They should have thought of this last year or the year before when they greenlit SS and FW knowing that they had Toukiden and GE2.
3. Let it die. Which is what SCEJA will do.

3DS - 17.036.780
PSP - 20.166.086

3DS 2013: 4.882.040
3DS 2014: 2.374.860 (so far)
3DS 2015: ?

It should hit 20M by the end of 2015.
Personally, my money is on early 2016 (last months of 2015 at the very earliest), unless sales are quite better during the first half of 2015.

I hope Nintendo will have a better game for Golden Week in 2015. 2014 with just the new version of Wagamama Fashion was pretty weak.
