So... 39716 is 50% of 48308? Maybe you should go back to school.

#5 Posted by tubbyc (3637 posts) -

Looks like DK won't help the Wii U much. Not surprising.

Vita STILL selling pretty well, with only one game in the top 20. Many more to come this year though.

3DS sold 97k last year... :| so... :/ My 50% was being generous :|

You just assumed i meant last week, even though i meant YOY.. ohh boy, isn't that embarrassing.

3 months until Mario Kart and PS4 is going to launch, we are going to see Dreamcast type numbers for the Wii U.

Yes, I certainly missed it. Sorry, I didn't figure you were so desperate to try and make Nintendo look bad.

GTA 5 (PS3) with over 700k in Japan. Impressive.

Otherwise slow week for everything. Next week should be fun though! The PS4 should spice things quite a bit.

It's still in first, though. Are video games dying in Japan or something?

Probably because people found out about Vita's awesome library.

Sales usually slow down before a big hardware release. I'm expecting the next week to be mainly focused on PS4, and the following weeks will slowly go back to the "natural" state of things.

Nice title lol.

That 3DS train is unstoppable... hogging up all the room on the software chart. Well done Nintendo.

#15 Edited by jsmoke03 (12443 posts) -

#16 Posted by charizard1605 (54087 posts) -

3DS still dominating the charts B-)

Looking forward to the PS4 domination next week though xD

They are the best pure plug and play experience out there, with the best exclusives.

Meaning, a discontinued console?

SONY is on ROLL guys.

It's getting to the point where nintendo is going to have to double down on the 3ds again while prepping for their next handheld. The wii u is by all means a lost cause and any huge game they put on it will be hampered by the anemic user base.

In hindsight maybe putting smash on the 3ds wasn't a bad idea

Funny, because Mario 3D World still managed to get damn near 2 million for what it got. That and doubling down on the 3DS is just going to piss more people (well, those who own a Wii U and like their consoles period) off.

Even the 3DS seems lacking this year :(

With only Smash, Yoshi's Island, Layton v. Attorney, Mario Golf, Conception II and Persona Q

Well, we are still early in the year, so maybe things can pick up for the both of them. (Although, as hypocritically bad as this sounds, part of me is kind of glad the 3DS is, at least so far, lacking)

#25 Posted by Desmonic (12323 posts) -

@SonicNextGen2: Conception II is a multiplat btw.

Don't worry, I'm sure one of the next ND's will be filled with 3DS games.

I feel the same way, still haven't played Kid Icarus, Mario Tennis, or 3D Land. I

True, because although I'm fine, one thing the Wii taught me is that if you don't release games over time, people will lose interest, no matter how many games you released in the past.

At least donkey kong did okay, but I already knew that game would not save the WiiU.That will be smash(to an extent) and mario kart that do the saving if it's still possible.

Putting Smash on the 3DS was a bad idea. Its going to eat the WiiU versions sales no doubt. Especially if Sakurai makes good on his word and the versions are nigh equal with the only difference being different stages. Why would someone buy a WiiU for that game when they could get it for 40 bucks on the 3DS and suffer very little drawbacks? It makes me wonder what system to buy it on.

WiiU is as good as dead right now....

It's easier to play with all your friends locally with the WiiU version and you don't need multiple 3ds systems to do that. Some people may also want ot play on a bigger screen.

#34 Posted by AznbkdX (3101 posts) -

Jeez, everything is doing terribly over there as of now.

#35 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (12632 posts) -

WiiU is dead, atleast until X.

And if that sucks, it's really dead.

#36 Edited by Shinobishyguy (22299 posts) -

@Capitan_Kid: as opposed to keeping it wii u exclusive and have it sell to a low userbase? Yeah atleast with the 3ds version they can eek out some profit on what they're spending on this game

But, considering Smash is the kind of game where you need a TV screen to see all four fighters and that fighting games aren't that popular on handhelds (seriously, Street Fightert IV wasn't much on the 3DS, nor was Tekken on the PSP compared to their console counterparts), who knows?
