Have you stumbled into this PAL charts thread by accident? Are there other charts that you'd rather discuss?
The performance of the 3DS in the UK is worth looking at because thus far it's been piss-poor outside of 1st party titles. Even then, only the Mario stuff seems to have any legs. Sonic Generations is doing OK as I understand it though, do we have any LTD for that?
Haha, strength to strength, did you missed the fact that Vita's top selling game is still losing out to the 3DS'? Or how bout the fact that the Vita is doing shitty everywhere, not just in the UK?Angry Birds up 5 places. Must be word-of-mouth as people hear about a hidden gem amongst the AAAAAA trash.
Vita going from strength to strength must be making the Mario Machine nervous.

HOW can a turd like RE6 be so high? SMH
You trying to say in the rest of the world the things are totaly different? I'm not that sure.
http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/120427/02.htmlAlthough there are six titles for the Nintendo platforms, the two “Mario” titles for the Nintendo 3DS have the smallest presence in the world. We need to promptly improve this situation.
http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/110128/04.htmlThis is the annual software top 20 chart for the U.K. At the nine-month point last year, there were no Nintendo DS titles included in the chart and only six titles for Nintendo platforms could be found, which is the smallest number among all the markets I have introduced today. However, the annual chart exhibits a couple of Nintendo DS titles and the total number of titles for Nintendo platforms has risen to ten.
And also that the 3DS price ist sill higher. Once 3DS will drop to 130euros/$ it should gain more traction. Nintendo has still room to react, from pricing & software pov.The US handheld market is actually alright; the issue is that the DS is selling as much as the 3DS each month.
This.I think people declaring flop of things just from UK charts is much more annoying than my corrections, actually
Laughs.Again, SM3DL sells more copies in France than UK while the UK is a bigger market.
The lack of handheld gaming popularity is a characteristic of the UK market. Iwata was interested in this:
inazuma eleven is not out in europe yet right?
08 (__)  Resident Evil 6 (Capcom)
09 (__) [WII] Inazuma Eleven Strikers (Nintendo)
Out of curiousity, alright compared to what? The Vita is doing ~50k a months and 3DS recently got outsold by the Xbox 360 despite launching New Super Mario Bros 2 and 3DSXL.The US handheld market is actually alright; the issue is that the DS is selling as much as the 3DS each month.
It was released last week. Charted at 17th place in the Wii chart.but there's not in the UK chart!
Those figures are for the U.S. market?Out of curiousity, alright compared to what? The Vita is doing ~50k a months and 3DS recently got outsold by the Xbox 360 despite launching New Super Mario Bros 2 and 3DSXL.

Yep, US market. Wasnt sure about Vita, but knew it was around 50k. The last NPD thread said the 3DS is likely closer to 170k.Those figures are for the U.S. market?
Too high on PSV (more like 30-40K/month) and the 3DS XL did 78K in a single week. Combined 3DS sales for September could surpass Xbox 360 (albeit not by much).
When you ask a question straight forward in written form, then it can be hard to know if it is a joke or not, yep Since Inazuma Eleven Strikers didnt chart in the UK Top 40, it could be easy to miss if the game was released in the UK, so i saw it as a normal question.My God, it's so hard to pass a joke, uh?
Because for so many weeks I've just talked about how well 3DS was doing in UK...no, wait, I was the first one saying it was doing bad, actually.

It's funny, because everyone knows your schtick.
i'm legitimately convinced that baconsammy would literally murder a nintendo employee if he believed he could get away with it. like, actual premeditated first-degree murder.
Yeah, it seems like that. Hopefully there is enough market for a dedicated handheld market, so there is still money to be made there.It's doing alright against its direct competition (Vita), but the marketshare Nintendo has lost to iOS devices has got to be a huge concern to them, as should be the upcoming releases of the new iPod Touch and iPad Mini.
Oops, sorry, i didnt see that you was talking about September I think that the 3DS could be the best selling system in September in the US, i agree.Yes, but that was 100K 3DS and 78K 3DS XL, the latter only available during the last week of sales in the August period.
EA has been promoted FIFA like crazy in Europe and Latinamerica, some of my friends in Mexico said that almost every game store there has an entire section devoted to the game, plus unlike RE 6 there're tv ads.RE6's 1st week got outsold by FIFA? Kinda surprised by that, maybe the shitty reviews scared people away. I'm waiting to pick it up for dirt cheap on Black Friday.
Fixed. Even if I think it's improved a lot compared to the pre-XL months, looking at how NSMB2 is still pretty high despite the big number of releases ( or better, the big number of SKUs) of the last weeks in UK.

I realise this is probably an exageration but both handhelds are doing pretty shit. Nintendo should definitely be worried about the 3DS performance in western territories but not because of how the vita is doing (which is even worse).
There are tons of RE6 TV ads in the UK... they ran some back in February or whenever the game was announced, as well.
I don't think it's so bad for Nintendo handheld market share (to make money) in US even if they never manages to top DS results. When we look at the trend for this past year, they were selling as many DS as 3DS (latest complete NPD datas were for June with 305K Nintendo handhelds sold: 155K 3DS / 150K DS).Yeah, it seems like that. Hopefully there is enough market for a dedicated handheld market, so there is still money to be made there.
If summer blockbusters includes a human meat market in the middle of London sure.Since 2 people said this now, i'm more likely to believe it. Everything about RE6's approach just screams summer blockbuster to me, so i'd expect them to have the advertising to match.
