The slight growth for Wii U (20K last week) is a much-needed reprieve from all of those horrible weekly declines the console usually gets after a software bump.

In the past we've seen 21K -> 16K and 21K -> 14K appear routinely, but 20K -> 27K is a unique situation presumably of the holiday season and a ramped-up advertising campaign on the part of Nintendo. The Wii U's continued diminished presence (it's still lower than the Vita) and larger-than-expected drops for Super Mario 3D World dampen the positivity of the its increase. Continued rises throughout the remainder of the holiday season will lighten my spirits towards the console! :)

That unexpected Wii U bump

Time to say good night to Vita TV, who could possibly believe this concept would work out in Japan of all places?

Maybe it'll find some love in the west, but idk.

AC4 was released for WiiU too so that's probably it.

Wii U rises! Let's hope this lasts for a few weeks.

Vita TV proves to be a waste of resources for Sony. Called it.

Ghosts Wii U didn't make the top 20, right? And the 360 version made it?

Anyway, hoping for better numbers now that we are gearing towards Christmas season :)

One Piece seems very front loaded. Is the game any good?

Maybe it'll find some love in the west, idk
I actually just had mine delivered.
Been playing God Eater 2 on it. It's a really neat little piece of kit, but I can see how the limited functionality (as of now) really hampers its potential. Can't wait to see what shenanigans I can into with it once the PS4 releases in Japan and the remote functionality is implemented.
The best part is that now I can stream Vita/PSP/PS1 games from it. Definitely worth the price of admission for that.

Wii U got a bumb? What is this sorcery! :) Nice hold for LR in line with previous FF's 2nd week precentage wise I think.

I'm curious if the 3ds can match or beat last year's YTD total thru the rest of the year. Right now its 160k behind which seems like too big a gap to fill. Does it have any major releases in Japan left for an extra holiday boost?

Must admit, I'm surprised that the Vita TV's held on so poorly even with a bad start. I had thought that the price alone would keep them moving, even if tech-heads don't care. I guess it would have to have something more interesting to the casual gamer first.

It also sold 160K units at the same week of last year. Just so you know.
(no special meaning other than whole market shrinking I guess).

I think WiiU will hover near the 30k mark for a couple of weeks then drop like a stone.

Wow incredibly poor for infnite battle, the game looked pretty bad but I was hoping for positive import impressions, guess it must have been as bad as expected

The problem is that it's not a handheld. Japan is Handheld Land. Simple as that.

It seems like Sony was hesitant to do heavy marketing on this because patches for existing games to support VitaTV weren't ready at the release, and there are quite a few games never will work on VitaTV for good too.
Well Japan is really handheld land now, so Vita 2000 could hold for some time, I hope.

I was wondering the same thing. Unless i remember completely wrong, wasnt the 3DS "guaranteed" to outsell last year's YTD because of Pokémon and Monster Hunter 4?

from Aquamarine in the Media Create thread from two weeks back:

According to Dengeki, the rest of 2013 looks like this for Wii U:

December 5th:
1) Dragon Quest X Expansion (¥3,990)
2) Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games (¥5,985)
3) Batman: Arkham Origins (¥7,980)

December 11th:
1) Monster Hunter Frontier G: Beginner's Package (¥6,090)

December 12th:
NOTHING

December 19th:
NOTHING

December 26th:
NOTHING
Hopefully they can promote some of the titles they have at more reasonable prices, I guess.

What? How in the world did Wii U sales go up this week with no new releases? Also the Vita TV's sales went down WAY faster than I expected. Well here's hoping that it does better in the west should it be released here.

There are 5 weeks of holiday sales coming. I think it is a safe assumption that Wii U will be able to sell around 200k in December.

So there's 800k unsold copies of MH4 sitting at retailers? Seems quite a lot.
Media Create doesnt count the sales of the download cards. There is maybe a few hundre thousand sales that were done directly through the eShop as well. Very hard to say how many unsold copies there are out there though.

Well there's digital version so gap is probably a little smaler than that.
However I've seen a game store guy complaining for "delayed" shipments arriving lately.

It really needs to get up higher if Ninty plans on delivering on their fiscal projections.
Even with the bump, those numbers most certainly aren't where they want them.

Edit:

Vita touchscreen certainly makes PUNISH TIME more interesting.
IIRC, their forecast is 9 million in the FY. They're at, what, <750k right now? They need to be selling multitudes better than this to make their forecast.

Last year also had the 3DS LL and NSMB2 combo + Animal Crossing right in the holidays. There was never any guarantee. I mean certain people thought so, but I always argued that people were not paying enough attention to the Animal Crossing effect.
