It's hilarious if it'll sell close to SK2. The lack of hype, given the platforms, is worrying though.

Boy, AC is such a monster here.

But really here, seeing the list there as long as the game is quite good and had nice aesthetic, it is at least free 100k+ sales here.

...... This makes me think lol. Won't FF animal crossing style will sell more than surely Explorer here.

And I really wonder, how good will Popolocrois do here. 200k sounds good if u ask me especially after how long the IP in dormant.

I forgot SK was even coming out next month until it was mentioned in this thread lol. It has some pretty steep competition so I have no idea what to expect from it.

That'd be hilarious. My Life as a King had similar aspects and was seemingly very popular.

I'm surprised Capcom didn't make a new Felyne village game for 3DS.

This news is probably gonna end up with a substantial thread, but apparently it's been discovered that Square Enix Holdings had trademarked "Squaresoft" and "Enix" on January 19th, 2015. Rumors of a brand separation ensue.

Couldn't they need those trademarks for stuff like Virtual Console and Game Archives?

I wouldn't assume a brand separation, what would be the benefit?

Seems like it will be a rough 2015 for 3DS, third parties will slowly abandon the ship when they'll see results like that.

Considering the game's more than a month from release and preorders would be split between four SKUs, your concern seems misplaced.
Maybe it does.

But I was expecting PSV version with early strong pre-orders, given the audience and the first successful entries. Perhaps there are too many SKUs (e.g. 4: PSV and PS4 normal editions and PSV and PS4 limited edition) so pre-orders are dispersed.

Boy, AC is such a monster here.

Life-sim are surely popular in Japan. I'm expecting Nintendo to jump on the amiibo train with AC, if not on Wii U than on 3DS. Konami should develop another Magician's Quest.

Seems like it will be a rough 2015 for 3DS, third parties will slowly abandon the ship when they'll see results like that.
Which results? This year, 3DS still has the best-selling games and the higher number of games in the rankings. Also, it's the top-selling hardware.

Fair enough. "Further proof" made it sound to me that someone had claimed otherwise, that such sales wasnt possible on the 3DS, so i just had to ask. Maybe not impossible like i first mentioned, but at least unlikely. Nothing too important, i just had to ask out of curiousity =)
"The Academy Award nomination is a further proof that the movie is at least good". Does this sound that might be a response to someone that said the movie wasn't good? To me, absolutely not. Just a way to stress an argument that is not much debated here. Well, maybe 'cause I don't like behindology ;)

Really curious to see how Persona 4 Dacing is going to perform.

Persona fabase is strong, as seen for spin-offs such as Persona 4 Arena and Persona Q. Dancing games are also popular on PSV, thanks to Hatsune Miku. It should crack the 180k mark easily.

Its not a case of behindology when someone is simply interpreting something differently, which is what i did here. I never said that you had some hidden agenda, or that you ment something else than what you said. Otherwise it would mean that everyone who interpreted something different or misunderstand something (which is something basically everyone does from time to time) would be doing behindology. It could also be possible to say that you're practicing behindology right now, when it seems that you're saying that i'm doing it, meaning that you're reading things into something that isnt there, which would be ironic hehe :p =)

But yeah, i think that "further proof" can be interpreted like that depending on the setting. In this case, in a sales thread, i know that a lot of things have been discussed on both sides. Proof is used to rule out doubts, so i was wondering if someone here have had any doubts about it. It was just a normal question out of curiousity =) But of course, it could also just be a phrase that is said just in case someone had been doubting it. Or like you said, to stress the arguement, in case anyone had been doubting it.

Generaly speaking, i'm not a fan of behindology either, i agree. I am however a big fan of making things clear, and thats being done by asking. Then there is much less reason to speculate. Not asking questions and making statements about someone based on assumtions only, that is not a good thing indeed. I also think its healthy to not take everything at face value.

EDIT: I edited some of the text.
 
Has there been any general consensus to why Phantasy Star Nova didnt sell more than it did?
Because it used to be a free download on psn?

At least i remember hearing the game was a free download for the a couple of months until the retail version arrived but i am not to certain anymore. Don't have any proof on it but i remember something being mentioned in older media create threads plus for the fact you cant use that download link anymore to buy it and a new page was made on psn.

Why buy Nova when PSO2 is free?

I imagine that is the most likely reason.

That is PSO2. PSN is a full retail spin-off.

Yeah, Phantasy Star Nova wasnt free. You're most likely thinking about Phantasy Star Online 2, indeed :)

I guess it would make sense that PSO2 could affect the sales of PSN. I think it also was a strange design choice to not have online multiplayer in PSN.

According to Tsutaya, Dragon Ball Xenoverse sold 140% of the last entry. All versions had stock problems, limiting their potential sales.

Media Create:
[PS3] Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (Bandai Namco Games) {2014.01.23} (¥7.480) - 30.192 / NEW
[PSV] Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (Bandai Namco Games) {2014.01.23} (¥6.480) - 22.901 / NEW

Tsutaya says that pre-orders for Zelda: Majora's Mask are strong and is expected to top the charts by a good margin the following week.
Samurai Warriors 4-II PS3 > PS4 is expected, but PS4 should sell better than other entries.
After SW4-II, The Seven Deadly Sins (3DS) will follow.

I thought 4-II was on Vita as well? Any thoughts on the sales of that SKU?

With the new DB movie slated for GW, I'm curious to see the VG sales for that week.

***

MC analysis for week 5:

Led by PS4 edition, “Far Cry 4” sold 57 thousand copies across 3 platforms

・ Total software sales were 496 thousand copies. For the downturn in sales of previous installment “Tales of Zestiria” was considerable (from 341 thousand copies last week to 29 thousand copies this week), total software sales plunged to 64.73% of last week.
Although multiple titles were released, their significant portion was remakes and bargain editions, and a ratio of new software sales to total software sales shrank from 63.00% last week to 36.30% this week.

・ The PS4 edition of “Far Cry 4” sold 36 thousand copies, and its digestibility rate was as high as 92.37%, entering at number 2 on the chart.
Total sales across 3 platforms were 57 thousand copies, which outnumbered initial weekly sales of previous installment “3” (40 thousand copies across 2 platforms), being the largest initial sales among all installments of the franchise.
For the first time in franchise, the latest installment released for the PS4, whose demand was stronger than that of the PS3 edition (18 thousand copies, digestibility rate: 63.84%), and thus not a few retailers were suffered by shortage of stock.
In addition to that, sales of the PS4 hardware increased to 126.09% of last week, so it seems that the core users who are fond of the titles like that gradually shift toward the PS4 hardware.

・ Hardware sales on a unit basis in January 2015 (from Dec. 29th 2014 to Feb. 1st 2015) fell below last year, decreasing to 88.94% of last year, while hardware sales on a monetary basis increased to 103.21% of last year.
It appears that the presence of the PS4, whose unit price was high, became strong in hardware market this year.
 
Has there been any general consensus to why Phantasy Star Nova didnt sell more than it did?
As others have noted, PSO2 is still going strong and getting tons of content.

Phantasy Star Portable came out at time when Phantasy Star Universe was waning, the PSU experience wasn't available in any portable fashion, and those games made considerable changes and balances to the PSU systems to make it way more than fresh (godlike Axe-type updates, etc.)

Though PSNova is a great game, it's really easy to see how an active and vibrant PSO2 that's available for free on the same system likely bit deeply into its sales potential.
