yeah, there is no correlation between Famitsu report and actual numbers, I agree
Indeed. I can see why there might be some thoughts around it though, since if the numbers isnt given out, maybe there isnt too much to write about. But at least we got the numbers on Thuesday instead of having to wait until Wedensday =)


Did they really have the same price at launch?
Yep :)

Thanks a lot.

C'mon guys, really cant understand why everyone is talking that PS4 will fail because "haz no g4m3z" when the first year PS2 games arent that relevant... i think that PS4 can sell even more games than this (can be wrong).

In the end, PS2 sold a lot in Nippon 1st year because the DVD player... this top 15 sales isnt that impressive.

I had no idea... makes me wonder how much the 3DS would have sold if it had launched with its price-cut price.

That's because the Japanese market has changed a lot since the PS2 era, and Japanese player seem to have moved away from console gaming (favoring handhelds and smartphones). It's too early to say either way, but one thing's for sure : we're never gonna see PS2 levels of sales ever again, not for consoles.

One day left to say if you think PS4 will perform like the 3DS/WiiU or like the Vita.

Performance comparison after the launch week:

(weeks 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6) / (week 1)

Wii U: 422k / 309k = 1.37
3DS: 473k / 371k = 1.27
Vita: 191k / 321k = 0.59

Applying to the PS4 week 1:

322k
x 1.37 = 440k
x 1.27 = 411k
x 0.59 = 191k

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: Feb 26 08:00 am (EST) (when Famitsu or Media Create first make their weekly sales public)

Attention:
  • PS4 HARDWARE DOESN'T INCLUDE THE 322k FROM LAUNCH "WEEK" (FIRST 2 DAYS)
  • Remember for some games it's not only the 1st week.
  • Multiplatform games are the combined available sales of each platform

------------


http://www.famicom-plaza.com/blog/2014/02/0225-ps4-first-limited-pack.html

PS4 bundles with Knack and camera are going to be shipped only in February.
From March, solely the standalone PS4 will be available (for the ~42k yen price).

Will Knack still outsell Mario?

Bonus prediction: how many hours until someone posts a link from dualshockers saying the same thing?

By that list, PS2 has an amazing first year line up comparing to what we know of PS4 first year line up right now. It really "haz no gamez" if you think PS2 line up is bad.

Bonus prediction: how many hours until someone posts a link from dualshockers saying the same thing?
Will take dualshockers a day to publish the story then another hours for someone to post it here. So my guess is by 1:00pm est Feb 26.

you wanna compile the average for the official monthly competition and then come back?

edit: hey look Bravely Default snuck in at #50 in Media Create while FFXIII: LR isn't there :lol

edit2: and would you look at that, the average there was 338,780, all that overestimating
you in particular made that nice 450k prediction
And then I made a prediction later on saying 300k.

lol, did you make that brag post when you yourself was 130k high? :D
Try 20k too low.

So he makes a wall of shame and then he is wrong?

Selective memory, how does it work...
It seems some of you can't face the facts. I simply used the most recent predictions many people made in the MC thread. They are there for you to witness. If you didn't make a revised prediction after the reports came in then your not on the wall.

Like Chris said they were predictions made by people who doesn't visit the media create threads. And yes, you made a 300.000 prediction... after making one of more than 400.000 :p

It's not about facing facts but getting the numbers that suits you better ;D It's all in good mood though, I just found it funny that you tried to mock other people when they could mock your first prediction too (and mine by the way).

Let's see what predictions come tomorrow for the second week of PS4 in the M-C thread!

Eh a considerable amount of them are regulars and I didn't even check the entire MC thread so there may be even more. Perhaps it was a stretch it call them all sales GAF.

My first prediction was outdated. I updated it. Do you not know what that means? It means I looked at the reports, shipment number and changed the number accordingly.

That would be interesting to see, indeed. The 25k yen price for the 3DS is also the main reason why there were more positive predictions regarding the Vita in the very begining, since then both the 3DS and the Vita were both at 25k yen (well, the Vita wasnt out yet when Nintendo dropped the 3DS price, but Sony had already announced the Vita price before this).

I made a 300k prediction before initial shipment estimate becomes known. What do I win?

No one cares.

If we take out blind fanboys from both sides that you can't have a serious discussion with and those who now had their first touch with Japanese market because of PS4 launch those who visit these threads should know by now that launch sales are important but not definitive for the future of a system.

3DS, Vita, Wii U all struggled after first weeks suffering from the software drought. When launch hype dies we 'll see if PS4 sales are respectable, mediocre or bad. Everything else is shortsided view.

It seems some of you can't face the facts. I simply used the most recent predictions many people made in the MC thread. They are there for you to witness. If you didn't make a revised prediction after the reports came in then your not on the wall.


So, you predicted 300k and I predicted either 250k or 300k. What's with that attitude of yours ? :p

Eh a considerable amount of them are regulars and I didn't even check the entire MC thread so there may be even more. Perhaps it was a stretch it call them all sales GAF.

My first prediction was outdated. I updated it. Do you not know what that means? It means I looked at the reports, shipment number and changed the number accordingly.
No, most of them are not regulars but I don't care. Just like I don't care if you read reports, see pictures of PS4 stock in yodabashi and changed the number. But trying to make fun of other predictions... Nah man, that's mean (unless it's Kandinsky :p)

I made a 300k prediction before initial shipment estimate becomes known. What do I win?

No one cares.

If we take out blind fanboys from both sides that you can't have a serious discussion with and those who now had their first touch with Japanese market because of PS4 launch those who visit these threads should know by now that launch sales are important but not definitive for the future of a system.

3DS, Vita, Wii U all struggled after first weeks suffering from the software drought. When launch hype dies we 'll see if PS4 sales are respectable, mediocre or bad. Everything else is shortsided view.
You won... A battle for now but I'm still waiting for the updated Devil training numbers to see if it reached 500.000 and rub it in your face bwahahaha (I know it's not going to happen but... Believe! Haha)

To get things started for tomorrow I predict that the PS4 second week will be barely 100.000 (or less). Be ready to make fun of me! ;D

Many people probably lurk but don't post anything because people in these threads act like people in those WUST threads. If you aren't an expert you get shredded.
That really doesn't seem like the case. Someone would be shredded if they make an outrageous claim, and many 'regulars' do that as well.

I find it to be friendly in sales threads with informative posts outside of console war stuff. And well, there is Chris who is just Chris lol, but his insight and informative posts are great.
I doubt that's the case. When someone gets shredded he probably deserves it.
Or she. :p

You mistake me. I am not making fun of any them. I am just showing the underestimation. I said this in the other thread. The only people that should be feeling stupid are the ones that jumped to crazy conclusions about the Ps4 launch and how it bombed (not anyone in this thread iirc) after seeing some PS4's on a shelf.

More than half way done and not counting digital sales... I'll win someday! This is a marathon, not a sprint! ;P

That's fine then ;) I just thought that quoting everyone who underestimated the PS4 was poor form by your part because we don't need to mock or "make feel stupid" to anyone. Predictions should be fun time and not some elitist game IMO

I think some of us were also overly influenced by recent anecdotal evidence (empty lines, etc) and negativity regarding the PS4's future in Japan. If memory serves, we already had evidence that the PS4 was hyped there, polls and such. We should have known that launch sales would be good. There's still going to be hype-fueled customers looking for a PS4 in a week as well.

I agree with Chris1964. What we should really be looking forward to is seeing where the PS4's sales will settle at.
