cool numbers bro!
Dylila  +   515d ago
think about this. having a new video game console and its very powerful improving on most gaming technology we've seen on game systems so far. improvement with ai, npc count, npcs all look different, better graphics, better lighting, amazing online, better animations, and just overall improvement of everything with games for casuals to the core and more. think of this system being what the wii u should have been.

wii u is doing terrible because of nintendo and the fanboys being 'yes master'

mika cmon you calling someone a fanboy muhahaha

At first I thought this was a reply, then I realized it was some random personal attack on Nintendo.

Ni No Kuni sequel. C'mon... Make it happen, Level 5.
juandren  +   515d ago
I shudder at this thought, but Ni No Kuni is doing too well in North America. I am afraid Level 5 might do a Square Enix and develop for the 360. And I would be fine with that, but look at what has happened to Final Fantasy because of their greediness. Let's pray Level 5 has more sense

"the fanboys being 'yes master'"

Sorry to break the news to ya, but that's just not Nintendo fanboys. Xbox, PS3 fanboys are the same way. Actually fanboys of any company, who thinks its cute to be kissing that companies ass, when in reality the company couldn't give a flying flip about you, just your money.
blackblades  +   514d ago
That's mika the most hated person on n4g, heshe got a new name no wonder I didn't see that name in a while.
NewMonday  +   514d ago
the great news for NiNoKuni is that the global release of the game almost tripled sales after just 2 weeks in the market, sends a strong message about the global market for top JRPGs

wiiu- hardware-2,544,024 , software-5,233,180 , not good , maybe this is the real reason for rayman delay. this is total.2-1 ratio.and Nintendo land counts for 1,623,104 of the software count which comes in the deluxe box.New Super Mario bros u sold 1,520,566, so with 3,143,670 total between the 2 that leaves 2,089,510 to split between all the other games released for the wii u so far, no other games where on the top 30 .blackops2 sold 16,000 http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
zombiu sold 33,000 http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
not good at all no wonder 3rd party are pushing back games , expect more delays , Nintendo fan boys back off I have a wii u , and im not happy with this im worried.
Realplaya  +   515d ago
But IGN says ZombieU sold a Grand Total: 187,930 units did you do proper research?
Jobesy  +   514d ago
When the chart says 0.16 and 0.33 that translates to 160,000 and 330,000. The chart is based off of 1 million, so 1.5 would mean 1,500,000. If you're going to quote a chart, learn how to read it first.
EeJLP-  +   514d ago
You're not going to have a 10-1 tie ratio in 3 months.

Like people used to talk about tie ratios between the 360 and PS3 in '07, well duh, if one's been out almost 2 years and the other only 1 year, obviously it's more likely the 2 year old console's owners started buying more games for it.

I'm not saying the Wii U is doing good at all, just talking about tie ratio only a few months in to any console's existence.

fluffydelusions  +   515d ago
I'm worried for Wii U. I mean for a new console those numbers are quite terrible. When PS4/720 launch it won't be any better I think. 3DS on the other hand is doing very good.

PopRocks359  +   515d ago
The Wii U is the most expensive piece of dedicated gaming hardware on the market right now. It also has a smaller userbase with a smaller library of games and this is a month where there are no real releases coming out.

I wouldn't have expected it to be flying off the shelves this week either. The 3DS is the exact opposite. Many people have them, there are quite a few games for it and it has a bunch of games coming out this year.
medziarz  +   514d ago
but there's a 10% increase
AWBrawler  +   514d ago
The slow Rise before March, and monster hunter release, but of course that will be ignored because the Wii U is doomed and all....
RogerDodger1954  +   514d ago
@fluffydelusions The Wii U lauch was far more better than the PS3 or the Xbox360. So i wouldn't be too concernes about it, espacially when Pikmin 3 comes out, it will be racking up sales

Denethor_II  +   514d ago
But SquareEnix know best. What we want is a linear action game with a hint of rpg elements somewhat. The sales of this traditional jrpg must be an anomaly. Now lets all wait for FFXIII-3 or whatever they're calling that shit. Resident Evil 7 is also on my radar.
juandren  +   515d ago
I watched "Spirited Away" last night for the first time. It is a movie by Studio Ghibli (they did the art for Ni No Kuni). I highly recommend it to any JRPG fan. The world that Studio Ghibli creates is unlike any I've ever seen in a movie. I have yet to play Ni No Kuni, but after watching that movie I am definitely going to buy it
Bathyj  +   515d ago | Well said
If you havent seen Princess Mononoke, see it.

Maybe my favourite animated film ever, and one I'm been dying to see made into a game since I saw it.
juandren  +   515d ago
Bathyj: I just read up on it and it looks awesome. Will see if I find time to watch it tonight. Thanks man. Bubble+

The dude rides an elk instead of a horse, and the chick rides a giant wolf.

How can you not like that?
wenaldy  +   514d ago
I recommend to watch Grave of the Fireflies, touching movie from Studio Ghibli.
StreetsofRage  +   514d ago

All fantastic movies up above. I recommend a recent gem... children who chase lost voices.
dc1  +   515d ago
And what a wonderful game it is!
I'm loving it very very much :)
- The Japan Philharmonic Orchestra performs beautifully.
- The game play is classic but yet not tiresome
- The story is not new (but what story is?) however equally refreshing.
Again, its a very beautiful game.

I really hope we see more from Studio Ghibli and Level 5! Note sure who's vision this was, but it works.

kratos123  +   515d ago
I am so happy for this game
It has now over half a million sold in total
do you guys think it will break a million?
i think it would be possible for this game, now we should just hope for a sequel
NastyLeftHook0  +   514d ago
it will, i walked to gamestop the other day and heard a casual (obvious) customer asking about ni no kuni.
Nathaniel_Drake  +   515d ago
It's funny you put a classic jrpg on the PS3 and it sells. Yet devs like Mistwalker avoid the PS3 like the plague and don't put a game on it. This should be proof if you do put classic jrpg and not some jrpg that has western influence that it will sell and even beat top games like COD. Has any jrpg this gen done that?
#5.2 (Edited 515d ago ) | Agree(14) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
Arksine  +   515d ago
Mistwalker avoids the PS3 because Sakaguchi had a falling out with Sony's executives. This happened when he was at Square, and IIRC its one of the reasons why he left.

They still make some pretty good games though, and they would have success on PS platforms. Sony really should try to patch that relationship up.
WeAreLegion  +   515d ago
I agree. Many of those executives are gone. With Kaz in charge, relationships with many old friends have been patched. :)
stage88  +   515d ago
Nice to see the PS3 consistently being the best selling home console each week. Well done Sony.
Now bring in 20th Feb for PS4!
Bathyj  +   515d ago
I'm very impressed with Ni no Kuni.

Its good to see a game thats not a shooter on top of the charts.
Also good to see dev that deserves it getting rewarded. Bodes well for future development.
MadMen  +   515d ago
Xbox\PS3 looking good

wiiU looking bad
RogerDodger1954  +   514d ago
"wiiU looking bad" Are you serious? The sales are going up by 10%. They are obviosly getting better
MadMen  +   513d ago
LOOOL Riiiiiight
NateCole  +   515d ago
More imaginary numbers.
juandren  +   515d ago
I think they should be pretty accurate within a 10% range. You could give or take 10% whichever way you choose on any console you choose and their positions on the chart will be the same. Soooo yeah...

Edit: Works with the home consoles at least

WeAreLegion  +   515d ago
I think God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, and Beyond: Two Souls will push the PS3 past the 360 on VGChartz. It's already ahead on everyone else's chart, but not VGChartz. Lol .
