Yup, ps3 outselling all home consoles COMBINED.

PS3 beats Wii60 once again.

"I'm going to LMAO when the Wii U passes the Vita (LOL) in like 2 months"

#8 Posted by trugs26 (5822 posts) -

And 3DS > everything else combined.

#9 Posted by Razor_defiace (1618 posts) -

When is the japanese price drop for the Vita again? I wonder how well it does after that.

#10 Posted by Clock-w0rk (3378 posts) -

Damn is Vita doing better because that Soul Sacrifice trailer? It wouldn't surprise me.

Game will be a game changer for the Vita in Japan.

PS3 HW sales have been pretty crappy for a long time now.

3rd parties are finding decent success software wise but that's it. It's not looking good at all for anything besides 3DS.

Wow get some games out Nintendo.TheGuardian03
LEGO City is coming out in a few weeks for the US, so maybe that will help some.

01./00. [PS3] Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance # (Konami) {2003.02.21} (¥6.980) - 335.791 / NEW 

03./02. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf # (Nintendo) {2012.11.08} (¥4.800) - 77.709 / 3.012.055 (+1%)

Those are the highlights. Great MGR opening and AC hold is crazy considering the 3DS hw drop.

#16 Posted by Blake135 (3994 posts) -
Soul Sacrifice releases in..9 days doesn't it ? Will be interested to see if it effects Sales in Japan.
#17 Posted by YoYo278 (432 posts) -

Is anyone else surpised the Wii U is selling AT ALL? I mean... it essentially has two games for the Japanese Market :S

#18 Posted by FlamesOfGrey (7511 posts) -
Vita price drop happens tomorrow so we'll see how it does. Soul Sacrifice isn't till next week though. Wii-U is below the VIta now? Wow Nintendo wow. That is a new level and not good at all with the PS4 launching later this year.
#19 Posted by Thefatness16 (4672 posts) -

Vita took 17 weeks to go below the 10k threshhold.

Wii U took 12.

#20 Posted by freedomfreak (42764 posts) -
If only the WiiU could've gotten some of those multiplats coming out.
#21 Posted by nintendoboy16 (27829 posts) -

It wouldn't have done anything. Not even in the "well loved" SNES era did having multiplats mean a thing for Nintendo consoles. Very few third party games are deemed acceptable on their systems (these days, it's LEGO and Sonic, used to be the likes of Turok, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, and Soul Calibur).

So, it's all up to NIntendo bringing out games; because 3rd parties don't seem eager to put anything on it, besides Ubisoft, but that company supports everything.
#24 Posted by SuperFlakeman (7411 posts) -

Wii U's 3rd party situation in Japan is worse than Vita atm :P

That's the one thing I never expected.

Also for whatever reason their Q1 aka launch window lineup was postponed and became the Q2 lineup. My guess is it's to make a bigger impact having a steady stream of SW releases starting April rather than spacing out a few here and there over the entire year.

Mario Kart, 3D Mario and Retro's game are likely to all be released later this year, along with WW HD, Yoshi Yarn, Wii Fit U, Wii Party U, Game & Wario, The Wonderful 101, NSMB U DLC and legs from Nintendo Land / NSMB U.

Wii U has shown signs that it's salvagable with its strong software sales compared to Vita. I think Wii U already has 2 games that has outsold the best selling Vita title.

So, back in the day, multpilatforms were actually Sega Genesis/Mega Drive exclusives?

Nice going, champ!

The WiiU is out Vita-ing the Vita

anyways you would think the vita sales would slow down to wait for the price drop on the 28th

The terms have switched, it's no longer called Vitaing, it's now WiiUing or Uing.

The console market in Japan has been dying for a while now. They are moving to handheld only, look at the 3DS numbers.

nintendo should call it quits and go third party, i'm only talking about consoles, there brand seems to be destroyed with gamers after wii, they can still make a cheap console that can strike lighting twice but, the chances are slim.
#42 Posted by Vatusus (5088 posts) -

If I'm not mistaken the PSV had a substancial price drop in japan so its not surprising. See Sony? Price drops do wonders! ;)

Anyways, dayum, the 3DS is killing... japanese sure like their handhelds

Have fun with lower quality games in their triforce (Mario/Zelda/Pokemon) and witnessing them making even worse decisions (well, worse in the sense that kills whatever positive reception they have left) than when they were first party.

what else can they do, wii u is not going to recover, it's only gonna get worst when ps4/720 come out, people think a few nintendo games are gonna save them when in reality there franshises like zelda and mario are not really system sellers anymore.

Retreat from the gaming market? We don't need a repeat of SEGA's mess here.

You don't know that the Wii U won't recover. The thing has been out for only a few months. If it was a year, then I would agree, but Nintendo still has time to recover. Look at the 3DS

#49 Posted by dobzilian (2817 posts) -
serves nintendo right. Still no 1st party games which are what i'd say are 'incredible' just Mario which is great but c'mon one exclusive. Where is wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3 ? Platinum can crap on a game case and i'd call it awesome and buy it. Ah well least it is only several more weeks till MH Tri U is released.
