are you saying every single copy of the DQ got sold over the weekend?

What if the bundles were only 50k and there was a second shipment?
Then I assume we shouldn't count sales from the knack bundle.

From the moment the DQH bundle was sold that = one sale for the game.

Maybe you're just trolling or you actually don't know.

What does the ps4 release schedule look like after March?
New versions of Dark Souls 2, EDF4, BlazBlue:CP and Neptunia VII in April.
After that not sure but there should be more mid tier games. Nothing super major till MGSV though, as stated.

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



Because in the week ending March 1st those were the bundles sold and not the ones sold in December.
yea i get that but i mean why would they only count these sales and not the ones in december, they counted all knack sales even those they were basically free whereas dqh sales aren't.

If DQH follows sales trajectory of One Piece then 850k+ is confirmed.
It should top 1m imo, since ps4 version exists

Wow. That's just sad considering how awesome March is. I really want MGS5 in may or June too.

It's confusing because they should have counted the sales for DQ:Heroes from the bundle when the games were sold (i.e December~January). The game should have charted those weeks.

Adding them in Week 9, 2015 doesn't make sense because the games weren't sold that week.

Still, good to know that they are included now and we don't have to guess the real numbers.

I thin you misread it.

My Point is that i believe that it is nearly impossible that there is 100% SELL THROUGH. So if 530k were shipped then its not possible that each and every copy of that is sold by Saturday.

I also think there probably was a second shipment. So overall shipment might be closer to ~600k and around 540k might be sold and remaining were bundles.

Other possibility is that may be there was only one shipment and around ~500k were sold and remaining ~100k were bundles.

All right, I feel that given this is what the promotional art is like, it's relatively easy to imagine where this might go later that fits Vita demographics:

Using sex to sell doesn't seem out of the norm for this series. I don't think the two images you posted would look out of place.

If they were going to extra sex up the Vita game, I don't know why they chose to go with chibi character models.

Of course there is a second shipment. 500k was just day 1 shipment.

Pretty much most games, in fact pretty much all big games will have 2 shipments in first week.
