The Japan Preview: 2/10/08 Edition (Smash & DMC4: Legs that won't quit)

Jacob Mazel of VGChartz writes:

After debuting to sales near the low end of the given range last week (about 800-840k depending on the source), Super Smash Brothers Brawl quickly climbed to over 1.2 million units sold this week. Devil May Cry 4 debuted at about 210k last week, and is quickly closing in on 300k lifetime.

Key Points:

-There were no major debuts this week. Smash Brothers was easily the top selling title for the week and has become one of Wii's million selling titles in Japan. Devil May Cry 4 is already one of the top selling PS3 titles in Japan, and has a shot at overtaking the top position.

-Unlike many previous weeks, there were many Wii and PS3 titles in the preliminary data. However, no Xbox 360 titles were in the preliminary data.

Key Software Sales:

Super Smash Brothers Brawl (Wii): 410,000 to 500,000 Units
Devil May Cry 4 (PS3): 70,000 to 84,000 Units
Assassin's Creed (PS3): 17,000 to 21,000 Units
Desgaea 3 (PS3): 9,000 to 13, 000 units


Wii: 88,000 to 95,000 units
DSL: 65,000 to 70,000 units
PSP: 63,000 to 68,000 units
PS3: 30,000 to 36,000 units
PS2: 10,000 to 12,000 units

Wow for Smash Bros. to sell another 400 to 500 K after selling 800 K, and good for DMC for doing respectable, 2nd week sales of 70 to 80k.
