@Darius: I sent you a PM, i just had to clearify something regarding our previous discussion about the PS3 =)


I really don't see why the stock situation for ps4 has been such a big issue. We will see pretty shortly whether or not there is a good amount of demand for the thing.
I think the PS4 stock situation has generally been more as a point of interest. But yeah, sold out or not, we will see how the demand is in the upcoming weeks/months indeed.

This can't be right. I'd already read in this thread that Vita digital sales are 20%.
;-)

Was there ever any verification over whether digital only sales are counted. For example games like Bike Rider DX 2 Galaxy that are only released via the eShop? Apologies if this has already been answered in another thread.

And clarity over a post I made in a couple of Media Create threads ago - Nintendo now are listing their games withOUT tax so all first party 3DS games increase from ¥4,800 to ¥4,937 from 1 April WITH tax.

I would assume because of this

It's neither.

It's the top 30 games that sold the most retail + downloads.
Download only titles would show up assuming they can beat out the top 30 retail + download games on the market in that time period. I dunno though, maybe not

Yokai Watch's ratings continue to go up, I imagine its weekly sales will follow too.
It's getting closer and closer to One Piece.

This could end up being Level 5's biggest hit ever.

Am I the only one very worried about PS4, after weekly Comgnet appeared? Look, games took another deep drop, again. If this translates into hardware sales, they'd be around 30-35k at best...in the week when the normal SKU was released. That sounds bad...let's see if that's what's going to happen.

Btw, just checked Yodobashi site ( 17:47 JPT) - in stock everywhere.

Instead, it's better to not check Amazon.co.jp for a while: the item PS4 is under review, due to some reports from Amazon users (like 3DS on Amazon US back in 2011, remember? ), so now it's sold by third parties. Anyone who can clarify if it's due to the wobble as I fear?

you've been pretty worried about the ps4 for months now, lack of announcements comg rankings etc. It was never going to push wii or ps2 numbers out the gate. Infact its been pretty well expected to not do great for a while in here, new ppl jumping into the thread posting crazy expectations due to the release hype notwithstanding.

I dont see it hitting the sub 10k's like wiiu and vita for a couple of months yet but its not going to be doing 20k+ weekly either

edit~ also wouldn't it be expected to be less desirable with no bundled game than when it had one? your sentence about the normal sku sounds strange to me

I'm worried for the Japanese market as a whole. The mass developer exodus to mobile will only get bigger.

Wii U is dead, Vita is a very niche device, 3DS is in decline and the PS4 seems to be stillborn there too. The next Nintendo handheld will probably do worse than 3DS, never mind their next home console.

While japanese AAA will probably keep on existing because it also sells to the west, Japanese low-/mid-budget games on consoles will die out. The new market for JRPGs is mobile.

Who was expecting Wii / PS2 numbers out of the gate? Everyone knew PS4 would have had a mediocre first year, with something like 12-15k weekly sales out of Holidays...it's just that I fear it could fare even worse than that. For the first year of course. Next year will surely be better, but a very bad first year could influence PS4's second year as well, and that's what Sony should avoid.

Lets have some numbers then. What do you think the LTd of the PS4 will be this year that will make you worry so much?

I think PS4 will sell around 1.5 million in its first year.

Looking at the release lineup, it seems almost inevitable the system goes below 10k at some point unless something drastically changes. People didn't buy the Vita just because the promise of being a successor to the PSP, and unless Sony has a lot more announcements to throw out soon, I really don't see why people would buy a PS4 for games 2 years away.

Unless there is some secret game X Sony is hiding for the 2nd half of this year this seems pretty unlikely considering the fact that it will probably have to average over 20k a week for the next 9 months and then have a Nintendo like increase in the holidays.

Vita had to compete against 3DS

SP4 has to compete against Wii U and Xbone (when it gets released in Japan as tier 8 country)

You do know that puts is pretty close to 1.5 million

20k*36= 720k

720k+ 370k(current LTD) = 1.1 million. 200-300k holiday season and its pretty close to my figure.

Are we really going to pretend like PS4 isn't competing against mobile/3DS/Vita/PS3 in this thread? By this logic the Wii U should have rocketed to success.


20k*36= 720k

720k+ 370k(current LTD) = 1.1 million. 200-300k holiday season and its pretty close to my figure.
Oh ignore what I said, I was thinking calendar 2014 not the first year of release. I can see close to that by the end of Feb 2015


But anyway, with no real place to get a bunch of announcements out there for a while, this is a pretty horrendous lineup if it holds. And honestly, I'm not sure where a ton of announcements would come from that would actually be out in the june-sept area.

36 weeks from now, is in 9months -> December, holiday season is in December/sylvester as well. It´s obvious that he was talking about calender year 2014. Even if you consider January and, February these aren´t very strong months in general without a system seller.

Well, the lineup has been my main worry for a while, and it seems it has not changed that much yet. I hope something is announced in the next future for this year and 2015 (I mean different from the big ones), because the lineup, after March, is even worse than PS3 in 2007 IMHO.

Right now, we have things like next Ys being a possibility, as well as one SKU of the new Senran Kagura Versus, and the only certainty is NISA announcing a PS4 project at this year TGS. We have many intentions, but currently...almost nothing concrete. Still, I think / hope PS4 could get versions of the following titles

Dead or Alive 5
Ultra Street Fighter IV
Dark Souls 2 (2015)

Given hints here and there. Other possibilities?

Yes the lineup is worrying. I'm sure there are some announcements to be made.

Like I said before, what do you see the LTD of the PS4 at the end of this year that makes you worried so much?

I think it was Takao who said it frist, but the PS4 has to fight againt the WiiU, its own predecesor and unfavorable market trends. The Vita "only" had to fight against the 3DS and the PSP.

I agree. It is kind of depressing as someone who enjoys Japanese games.

This might be a dumb question, but have there been any Japanese developed 3rd party next gen exclusive games announced or released for ps4?

That's a joke right ?

No major 3rd party game will be released on Wii U in Japan without getting incentives from Nintendo or being allowed to use one of Nintendo IPs.

People buying PS3 are natural customers for PS4 in which case it's only a matter of when not if.

Market trend sounds to me like someone is mistaking cause and effect. Current market trends are like this becouse PS3 had tons of problems.

Of course Japan publishers seem to not have learned from PSP->Vita transition mistakes so first 12-18 months will be relatively slow but dying sales of ps3 software in the west will force them to move.
