With Wii U's current software predicament, I could envisage it actually dropping below the Vita's all-time low at some point. Yikes.
i think the Wii U is pretty much stable at this point... the difference among this week and the last one is just statistical noise

It's a console in handheld land, a more expensive console than any handheld. I could see it, not that it means much, 1 over 10k or 1 below 10k, it's still shit sales.

What a wonderful sendoff of the Taiko Wii series.

Also, for 3DS to actually gain in an otherwise dead week -- I wonder if it's now beginning to stabilize at around 75k whereas it was closer to 60k pre-holidays.

PSASBR bomba...

and WiiU almost at PSV levels of sales
These are the first two things i noticed. PSASBR is a total brick. Nothing of note saleswise worldwide. I saw that shit coming man. Unless they are just going to go ahead and fully take the knockout mechanics of Smash, and find a way to get more recognizable and well known characters, then they shouldn't bother with that franchise anymore. I have NFI what they were thinking with that game.

And the WiiU is a corpse and will fall below the Vita sales in the upcoming weeks. WiiU and Vita DOA. 3DS on the other hand is killing it. Even Inazuma is doing well.

The most insane thing about Animal crossing is that the number is even higher. Nintendo reported over 2.7 Million shipped by 31st of December. I wouldn't be suprised if the game has sold over 3 Million to conumers uptil now, including physical copies, download cards and digital.

yes it is, and the drop from 2 weeks ago to last week was huge, but from last week to this week it barely moved

What game release will keep it reasonably stable for next week ?
none, but honestly i don't think Ken had any impact

and don't take me wrong, i think it has atrocious performances and there's not going to be any improvement whatsoever in the upcoming future

The numbers will be more closely represented by Famitsu's data. Media Create doesn't (or didn't?) track download cards.

depressing Wiita numbers as usual, with PSP not able to fill the Vita "emptiness" and PS3 not able to fill the Wii U "emptiness", and viceversa.
Only the 3ds is doing very good with both hw and sw.

Wait, was there no PASBR for Vita or...
It is. It charted on 24th place in the Famitsu chart:

24./00. [PSV] PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale <FTG> (Sony Computer Entertainment) {2013.01.31} (¥4.980) - 5.210 / NEW


I just did a web search, and you can rent the demo for free from Geo, not the full game.

Apologies.
Interesting that there excist a demo disc though. I thought those hardly excisted anymore.

Actually, I thought Ken's Rage 2 for Wii U would have done worse.

Last year, 3DS had many releases, especially RE: Revelations in January. This year it had literally nothing, but it obtained to sell more units and it even saw an increase the week before DQ7 releases and brand new games start being released. Animal Crossing is truly doing its job magnificently.

Well I guess with all the rumors floating around if Sony blocks used games in Japan they are dead there, so that's one reason I could see it not happening.

No surprises. 3DS still beast, Wii U and Vita needs software.

Its always a slow prolonged slip to that sub 10k doom-pit.

More reason for region lock, different region to have difference policy on used game.

Can only hope Fantasy Life keeps selling really well and that maybe that changes the prospects for Western localization. I know I say that every single week in this thread but that is my true hope.

Not to say it did fine but yes, I also was expecting worse.


Also, why? How?

Since Nintendo co-developed the game, I could see this one easily falling within the swath of titles which Iwata said they intend to pursue localizing in stead of reluctant third parties.

I kind of get the feeling that this exact same question is asked every week. It's the final Taiko Wii game. It's the biggest console Taiko game ever. The song list is as big as any of the arcade versions (100+ songs) so the value within it is staggering not to mention there are console-exclusive songs. So fuck paying 100 yen to play 3 or 4 songs in the arcade.
