What a shitty week for Sony- Nintendo dominates the software charts, Nintendo dominates the hardware charts (3DS outsold Vita, Wii U outsold PS4 and PS3, and 3DS>Wii U>PSV>PS3>PS4. So sad :( ).

#3 Posted by freedomfreak (41381 posts) -

MK is doing gewd.

Here's to hoping that they give us some free battle mode arenas, because MK8's Battle Mode is downright horrible.

#5 Posted by blue_hazy_basic (28019 posts) -

Gave WiiU a nice bump. More miserable sales for the PS4, needs a monster game there and soon.

#6 Posted by Slashkice (13304 posts) -

Yikes at those Wii U sales. You'd think MK8 of all things would give it a bigger bump than a measly 10k.

Really bad that the PS4 only managed to chart 1 game too. Looks like the Japanese are more prepared than the rest of the world to sit and wait for a next gen console. That is if they even care #handheldgamingdomination

#8 Posted by tonitorsi (8489 posts) -

Honestly thought Wii U would smash it this week.

20K does nothing for me.

The Japanese, it seems, won't fall for Sony's empty hype and promises like everyone else did :(

lol @ WiiU sales. Not even 20k? Smh. GG Ninty, GG. You tried.

It is, and has been for a while, abundantly clear that the state of console gaming in Japan is... less than healthy. The Wii U is just one symptom of that problem, but so are the PS3 and PS4. Consoles simply aren't doing well in Japan, hell handhelds are barely keeping their head over the water.

#10 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7429 posts) -

Wii U outsold the PS4 by nearly 3 to 1.

#11 Edited by nintendoboy16 (27216 posts) -

MK numbers... *thumbs up*

Wii U numbers... *Todd in the Shadows piano facepalm*

PS4 numbers... *head piano*

#12 Posted by ocidax (768 posts) -

The Nintendomination is back. WTF PS4 sales. Danm

#13 Edited by GoldenElementXL (3444 posts) -

PS4 numbers look scary. It's selling slower than the Wii U was at this point in its life.

WiiU sales > PS4 sales = Cows will be ignoring this thread. The sales don't matter, do matter flip flopping continues.

What is this " Mobile Suit Gundam: Side Stories" shit?

#16 Posted by ocidax (768 posts) -

Damn.. The GS forum is death death. Is sad. The design change and others things like trolls out of control ruined this place. RIP SW.

#17 Posted by sneslover (940 posts) -

I think the home console business is kinda done in Japan, I predict we'll only see these small peaks of hardware sales when major games are released, but for the most part handhelds play a major role in the gaming scenario in that country. I'm sympathetic to that opinion, as I'm finding that after 24 years of gaming, the clutter just adds up and becomes unbearable, which handheld gaming aleviates somehow, shame some of the major titles don't have handheld versions though, but I already prefer the handheld Metroid and Zeldas, and Mario is pretty much the same in either system.

To really conquer Japan I think a portable-prioritized system is the answer, at least for Nintendo. Have some integration with a home system probably playing the same games (though PS Vita TV flopped so it's hard to say).

#18 Edited by joehult (371 posts) -

No surprise, Japan is dead and likes awful craps. No sense in even posting their numbers anymore since Europe now has a larger install base.

#19 Edited by Sweenix (5399 posts) -

lmao at charizard trying to avoid those shitty wii u sales.

Even with Mario kart 8 it sold sub 20k

lel

LOL at charizard posting these japan sales numbers every week and thinking this makes the Wii U's situation any less worse. LOL

#21 Edited by lamprey263 (24414 posts) -

Mario Kart 8 outsold everything else in the top 20 combined.

Can't wait to see how Persona Q does next week, it went on sale like 10 minutes ago. 3DS numbers seem low, about half what they were in weeks prior. I'm wondering if some Japanese gamers are holding out for that Persona Q Limited 3DS XL bundle.

#22 Posted by musicalmac (23112 posts) -

SUPER low PS4 sales. Good gravy.

#23 Edited by speedfreak48t5p (8511 posts) -

LOL Charizard thread.

#24 Posted by ocidax (768 posts) -

@Sweenix: Actually is really good for the current situation of consoles in Japan. And is 3 days of tracking. The job of MK8 is sustain those numbers.

#25 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9671 posts) -

lol at the cows spinning this.

#26 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (3097 posts) -

Those are some sad console numbers. I can't wait until the X1 releases there.

#27 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3649 posts) -

Keep the cow tears coming.

#28 Edited by enzyme36 (1597 posts) -

Well done Ninty! Complete domination this week... no way around it

#29 Posted by Ghost120x (3973 posts) -

I knew ps4 would flop in Japan. Sony made it clear that the platform is dedicated to western audiences. It seems the trend will continue like last gen, if you want some good Japanese games and western games, you have to get a handheld/console combo.

At the rate the ps4 is selling it will be lucky if it even beats the WiiU's ltd ever in Japan. Even if the PS4 beats the WiiU in Japan it probably won't be by much(1 to 2 million max probably if it's unlucky). We look at the state of the console and handheld industry all over the world on SW and not just in the western world.

#32 Posted by ActicEdge (24492 posts) -

Those are some terrible WiiU sales.

#33 Posted by KBFloYd (13991 posts) -

damn....wiiU didnt outsell the 3ds. maybe hyrule warriors will do it?

hopefully it sells 200k in npd :)

#34 Posted by big_mak523 (166 posts) -

It's funny how a few months ago, it was terrible that the Wii U was being outsold by last generation hardware, but now that it's the PS4, I hardly hear anything... Strange...

#35 Posted by misterpmedia (3632 posts) -

Christ, wake up PS4. PS4 needs a Japanese game-centric injection, STAT.

In the end it's only the total number that counts. And worldwide the picture is totally different.

But Japan can still have an affect on the console's final ltd. Sony will now have to rely on mostly NA and Europe to sell the ps4. Smaller countries and Japan will most likely not help the PS4's ltd that much.

#38 Posted by Seabas989 (10538 posts) -

Mario Kart 8 doing well for a game that's on a console that's doing horribly. But Japan looks like they don't care for consoles anymore.

Wii U sales not good but compared to the PS4...

lol @ Cows. Make a WW sales thread if it makes you happy. This is a Japanese sales thread.

Japan is a special case, it's one of the only nations were handheld gaming really dominates.

Don't think Japan will play a big role in the sales war since it's between PS4 and Xbone. The Wii U may live in Japan but in the rest of the world the Wii U is...dead.

PS3 beats Wii60 once again.

#42 Posted by TwistedShade (3165 posts) -

Japanese gamer's aren't fanboys and recognize there's no reason to buy a system with no games. Which is why the PS4 is doing so badly.

Oh, I don't know. The fact that PS4, a console that's kicking the Wii U's ass in NA/EU is actually getting it's ass kicked by the Wii U in a major part of the gaming industry?

Is Japan still a major part of the gaming industry when its influence has waned for the past decade? I mean do gamers still care about japanese games (except for the weaboos)?

#47 Posted by scottpsfan14 (5811 posts) -

@nintendoboy16: Come now. You know as well as I do that Japan is nowhere near as important in the console market any more. It's the land of handhelds. It will make absolutely no difference to the PS4 as a whole at all. Japan gaming market has diminished greatly. Don't lie to your self sheep. The PS4 could never have launched in Japan and still slaughter the Wii U. There is no comparison. Both PS1 and PS2 stripped Nintendo of their pride. They had a run with the Wii but even then it was betrayed by their casual audience eventually. And now they give us the Wii U. Stop being a fucking idiot and realize Nintendo have fucked themselves one too many times. Why is it so hard to get that?

A lot of the best games are made in Japan, so if Japanese sales influence which platform those are placed on, then the sales matter.
