Farcry boosted the PS4 or is there anything I am not aware of?
Bladestorm sold too bad to be a reason.

[3DS] Devil Survivor 2: Break Record - 52.368 / NEW
[3DS] Devil Survivor: Overclocked - 18.564 / 48.708
[NDS] Devil Survivor 2 - 62.246 / 99.748
[NDS] Devil Survivor - 56.689 / 106.997

Break Record debut is pretty high for a porting; almost on par with the two original entries, and already outsold Overclocked.


With a better opening for Break Record as compared to Overclocked (18.5k FW in Famitsu), Atlus better start working on Devil Survivor for 3DS, 3rdDevilSurvivor...heh it's time.
I guess the mere existence of DS2: Break Record is due to a DS3 in development for 3DS.

wait, I thought she's the main female lead character like Milla in Xillia, she's not a playable character?
Nope, people are saying you can only play as her briefly in one specific chapter of the game or something, and recently they announced a DLC episode where she is the main character, so yeah.

I guess maybe Awakening has boosted the SRPG audience somewhat? I guess we'll see if Stella Glow and Langrisser can benefit.

In other news the Bravely Second stream confirmed Edea is a party member. They showed Yuu, Magnolia and Edea in battle all with the pastry chef asterisk costumes on.

What I'm saying is.... 500K here we come!

Break Record did a lot better than the first Overclocked. I don't know the reason why such difference, but the better non-shovelware sells, the better it is for us.

Apart from that, I don't think there will be anything interesting till mid-February.

If YW2.5 keeps doubling PKMN ORAS, it might outsell it sooner or later. If the anime keeps succeeding, than it will more than double PKMN during, let's say, the Golden Week.

Ace combat bombed badly... :(
The original sold 12,000 in its first week, so this was kind of expected for a re-release with not so many enhancements.

Great DS2 debut, near the original! Good Kirby legs too.

Also, now maybe we're in the phase where Famitsu and MC try to conform to each other as much as possible, seeing 3DS numbers for both trackers.

I'm actually a guy/girl plot twists you

For real. The Amiibo support provided little help.
No it didn't. A re-release on the same console with just extra controls and some bonus planes that requires 15$ figurines each to unlock wasn't gonna sell more than the original version (which already sold rather poorly, so yeah).

So what are the expectations for DQ Heroes?
Anything less than 800k will be considered a failure in my eyes. This is not a hyperbole and I am dead serious.

1m is a nice and round target. On one hand I doubt it can reach those numbers. On the other hands it would be embarassing if it doesn't.

That Zestiria drop is brutal. Didn't know the character drama would affect sales that much.

Or is that a normal drop for a Tales game?

It's just the ongoing joke whereas that character and the main hero have strongest bond in the game lol

Wow at Far Cry 4.
Disappointed for Bladestorm.
Expected lower for Vita for some reason.

Forgot the original version didn't do too hot, but I wasn't expecting much for that re-release either anyway. Probably just a quick way to get some cash from Bamco, and a game to fill up the line-up for Nintendo.

Next Wii U retail game isn't until March 12.
Yikes. 36 days with no new releases. Will the Wii U drop down to sub 3k?

EDIT: Oh, MK10 is out on that date. It should go back to the 8-9k ish range for a little while.

Is there some recent LTD numbers for the original game?
AHL is still a remake of a previous Ace Combat too.

X1 still hasn't hit its low point lol.
Vita is like a drunk barfighter that keeps coming back for more.

How is AC LTD for MC? I remember something around 30-35k. Famitsu has it at 15k which sounds a bit weird.

Going by Japanltdrank (which uses Famitsu numbers), the game is at 40,000 units sold. Don't know how recent is that, though. Still, I don't think the actual LTD is that different.

Wow, #1 spot sold 53K? This is depressing.
Also, relatively good numbers considering what that game is.
