The ordering doesn't tell us too much but i find it interesting that mrio jumped in front of monster hunter. could be a big week for mario or maybe a decent dropoff for monster hunter. Still pretty crazy to see 3DS with the top 4 spots and i get the feeling this type of thing is going to be very common this year.

Looks like Inazuma has a chance to comfortably sell through its first shipment after all. It just takes a while to get those kids to buy a new hardware.
Yeah it does look to be the case. It might end up doing better than I expected after all. Level 5 still needs to address the drop in interest their series get after finishing complete trilogies though. They should definitely be investing in new stable IPs in the long run, and I think it would be smarter if they don't group them into "trilogies" or other such finite narrative blocks. Instead making each game a stand alone title in an on-going series would work much better.

I think they are aware of the short term of their success.
The level of milking of the Layton and Inazuma IP was/is quite high.

With Go Vacation and Family Fishing success, I wonder why third party abandoned Wii so early in Japan. There IS a market for certain type of games.

On the other hand, it could very well be because there are no other alternatives so these two games would perform this well.

Holy shit at Mario Kart 7. Close to 1,5M in just 2 weeks.

Why should be Vita affected / Sony week?
 
I can't speak to its general popularity, but the games don't seem to have been very big deals. PS2 NightFire and Everything or Nothing look to have been the biggest; Wii Goldeneye is about matching NightFire through its Top 30 disappearance.


More recently, Quantum of Solace sold about 30K--between four platforms.
