Wait. So, this means that last year's bundles are included in PS4 total for DQH?
That's what Media Create says:

ドラゴンクエストヒーローズ 闇竜と世界樹の城(同梱版含む)

That's what Media Create says:
That's for every game with a hardware bundle. See Animal Crossing 3DS or Mario Kart 8.

i don't know why they would only count this weeks bundles sales only

and if its counting all bundle sales it is too low

no idea really
Because in the week ending March 1st those were the bundles sold and not the ones sold in December.

Oops forgot to mention the DQH PS4 number includes bundles.
Really? Ok, Media Create are known to count software from bundles, it is just a bit more complicated in this case due to a different launch-dates. It seems that the argument for this is to simplify the tracking, despite at the same time beeing less informative and precise in my opinion.

It would have been more informative if they listed both, the actual retail sales this week and the lifetime sales including bundles.

Really? that´s interesting, that´s something I didn´t expect and also disagree with for the reasons I mentioned yesterday. But it seems that the argument to simplify the tracking, despite at the same time beeing less informative and precise in my opinion.
Pretty sure they will inform bundle sales

Media Create:

PS4 46,139
Vita 23,619
New3DS LL 22,620
PS3 8,926
New3DS 8,515
Wii U 6,606
3DS 2,795
3DS LL 2,666
Vita TV 838
Xbox One 703



DQH PS3: 325 k
DQH PS4: 269k (includes bundle)

So good PS4/PS3 split, but PS4 sales actually lower than expectations?
almost 600k for DQH and it's not even a main game in the series?!! isn't this too high or am I mistaken? if this is true then this incredible in a country where consoles are almost dead

Based Dragon Quest doing it's work.

does this means that game sold through first shipment and then some?
Should we expect some legs to reach a Million?
I thought it's initial shipment was around 500k?
But to answer your second queston, ai think it will settle around 800k at most I guess.

UK, sometimes France
Really? Dissapointing for Sony? How so?
There was a bundle in december so we can't judge this week alone.
Oh I know, but around 50k for the first big japanese game they're truly getting is disappointing. I've seen people predict higher than that, and it obviously won't stay at this level, nor the drop will be relatively slow.
It's still "good" however, don't get me wrong.

Not official, but going with the 530.000 units report. That means bundles were 64k.

I guess on friday Media Create will confirm it.
Well, the leaks have always been very, very accurate, so...

In that case, going by MC numbers, it's more like

PS3 - 325,000
PS4 - 205,000
PS4 (bundle from December) - 64,000

Very good opening for DQH and a fantastic split for the PS4.
Was expecting 5-10k more on the hardware front but still not bad, and the baseline should be strong throughout April at least.
