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 :( ).

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.

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

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

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

@Desmonic said:

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

@tonitorsi said:

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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)?

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.
