wow, significant drop all around for Japan. Holidays are over..
auragenz  +   551d ago
Maybe they got the numbers wrong, or supply was limited and they just couldn't meet the overwhelming demand like we see here.
knifefight  +   551d ago
No, this happens every year in mid to late January. No supply issues or mistakes.
UltraVegito  +   552d ago
Dear god those sales are abysmal.

Expected after holiday sales but still :s

Wii U DoA.
Jadedz  +   552d ago
lmao
It isn't, but Nintendo's definitely paying attention now.

They might be a little more ''on the ball,'' now that sales aren't great.

And what
Is your assessment of the Vita?
Knushwood Butt  +   551d ago
Vita needs some hit software, but it also still has heavy competition from the PSP too.
Knushwood Butt  +   551d ago
Also, it's outselling the Wii U in Europe.
Gr81  +   551d ago
And
After a month or 2 Wii U will have passed vitas lifetime sales. Which is the bigger flop?

You are so quick to point out Wii U's sales performance being poor but Vita is doing worse but you seem optimistic about one and pessimistic on the other. Funny.
Knushwood Butt  +   549d ago
In Japan at least, the Vita isn't doing so well. Like I already said...

It has strong competition, not only from 3DS, which is a beast, but also from Sony's own PSP (like I already said).

In the short-term at least, I think Vita has a better chance of picking up in Japan with a few titles like Soul Sacrifice and Tales.

Wii U? Where is the upcoming software?

If being nearly 1 mill away from Vita's Lifetime sales in just 2 months is DOA, WTF is the Vita. and realistically a handheld should outsell a console because you need more than one for multiplayer

Wondering if the PS3 will get a boost from Ni No Kuni
GribbleGrunger  +   552d ago
I've been wondering that myself. I'm sure we'll see a slight boost but I don't think we'll see a significant spike. There are bundles though and a lot of people have been crying out for a great JRPG ... I wonder how many of those people already own a PS3 though. It would be nice to see a spike leading up to the release of Sly Cooper.

doubt it
It has been release a year ago in Japan.

"Wondering if the PS3 will get a boost from Ni No Kuni "

...?

You mean in November of 2011, when it was released? :P

These charts are for Japan.
wiiulee  +   552d ago
wiiu doa...are you on drugs man...its been at the top of the charts....its was bound to go down at a point until the games are release.....wiiu is ahead to stay so relax..
DivineAssault  +   552d ago
damn, wii u dropped big time.. Cant blame em tho, theres no good exclusives for it & what little multiplats it has is much cheaper on the other consoles.. Lets see if they slash the price like they did 3DS when it was in trouble
AWBrawler  +   552d ago
too soon for price drop. I predict there won't be one before a new system is announced by MS or Sony, and depending on the price they announce, it might not drop then either.
Gr81  +   551d ago
What's
Your excuse for vitas pathetic sales performance?
DarkHeroZX  +   550d ago
Sales have always sucked in Japan for vita. But after those game releases in November, the PS+ coming to vita sales have picked up everywhere else worldwide. Plus you also have to factor in momentum going into the 2. Overall reception for for the PSP outside of piracy is pretty bad, after the PSP hacks which led to lack of developer support people lost all faith in any Sony gaming handheld. The Wii u was expected to be pretty big because it was coming off the success of the wii. Wii u sales are fine now but they could sell like the vita did for about a year. Vita sales sat at 2.2 million worldwide after it hit store back last February and it took em' almost an entire year to sell another million.same can happen to the wii u unless those games start rolling out. Plus unlike the Vita the wii U didn't really have a pause in launch between major markets like the vita did.

Gekko  +   550d ago
I'm no expert but those figures don't seem too bad for a weeks worth of sales. Sure, there is an massive drop from last week but it's not like there is any special occasion for those sales to rise.
