I know the holiday sales is a boost but nice to see vita, wiiU, 3ds doing really well. All new consoles topping their successors.
tubers  +   198d ago
Topping their successors?

Do we have sources if they're really doing better in YoY compared to predecessors?

I'm confident the Wii and PSP had better sales in the same time frame.

Nice to see the vita doing better.

Three people don't think it's nice to see the Vita doing better, but I agree ... and merry Christmas

And a Happy Christmas to anyone, regardless of what console they bought, what opinions the have or how much they've disagreed with me. We are just people who play games. Exchanging blows over this plastic war doesn't mean we can't still end up friends.

Edit: Happy Christmas to the person who disagreed with me. There are worse things in life than consoles. :)

I agree. Merry Christmas everyone, and to whoever got an Xbox One, PS4, Wii U or whatever, I hope you're enjoying it :)
GribbleGrunger  +   198d ago
@Unreal01: Happy chrismas, fella! :)
Protagonist  +   198d ago
It is the same little creatures, that claims gamers are hating on the Wii U, while all the same, they act it towards the Vita.
Spenok  +   198d ago
Merry Christmas to you too buddy!
Realplaya  +   198d ago
Wow the Wii U the little engine that could. So Nintendo has a bright outlook for themselves all they have to do is pull a 3ds keep pumping out 3ds type software levels. They need to avoid the drought and in the summer they can drop a game or two when nothing usually comes out they'll be fine.

Wii U Fit January retail
DK tropical freeze in feb
MK8 in march or April
Zelda warriors game in may and a few others.

I can only see them getting better as time goes on.

@Realplaya to your comment below.

What in the world are you talking about? You should check how Nintendo fanboys behave, before you make a comment of assuming

Relax with your stealth comments and tell the Nintendo fanboys "I think you should sit back relax and just play some video games as I always say unless you have stock in a company all you are doing is making the man rich."

PS dont bother answering back.
Realplaya  +   198d ago
@ Protagonist are you really serious you decided to hide your response in a earlier post that's sorta pathetic but it's ok. for one I'm a grown man and as long as I have a voice just like you I can voice my opinion I am not a journalist and I don't get a check from the big 3.

You know as well as I do you can pull 20 articles a month where both Microsoft and Sony gamers rhode Nintendo gamers hard. I can probably find multiple post from you. But that's not my intention. I will say it again sir you take the cake.

Fell free to comment ;)

Great to see the Wii U doing so well, can only imagine the sales once those 2014 Nintendo exclusives release.
r21  +   198d ago
Every thing's up. Sony should really release the DS4 over in Japan and release an update for more vita titles for VitaTV.

Yeah, great Wii U sales for one week over 100k only in Japan and they dont even celebrate christmas, so there the holidays are nothing special in a way.
SkyKing  +   198d ago
Jesus you're dumb, the Japanese celebrate Christmas.
pedroyamato  +   198d ago
No they dont, I live in Japan, they buy cakes to eat with their families, and couples go out to see xmas tree around the city. Thats all. Many of them even dont now the meaning of the Christmas itself.

Btw, Merry Christmas for all N4G members.
awesomeabe1998  +   198d ago
Even if they do or dont which they most likely dont, since I think the majority are buddhists, now is not the shopping season in Japan. It is in around February.
Chrischi1988  +   198d ago
Listen Smartass, Christmas is celebrated by people of the christian religion. The christian religion is a minority in Japan, so why should they celebrate christmas? Do you think they celebrate the birth of Jesus, even though they have a lot religions, mainly buddhist? Who is the dumb one? You are the ignorant one for actually believing what you just said. No, they do not celebrate christmas, their religion may have something to celebrate sometime around the same time as christmas, that is all.

So tell me, why exactly do they celebrate christmas? Because of Santa coming? Thats probably the reason, why you think, we celebrate christmas, because of Santa, but funny, that you pulled Jesus into this.

But funny how you all disagree, like what I said is not true. 100k sales for 1 week in one country alone is huge for Wii U and I am happy for Nintendo for that achievement, I dont know, whats to disagree with that. Or do you disagree because of that Christmas stuff? Maybe you guys should educate yourself, before using bad language against somebody.
Hicken  +   198d ago
Actually, they DO celebrate the holiday, though it's generally more for couples than anything.

But they DO buy gifts for each other, and there's also the gift money they get at our around new years, as well as people working little odd jobs for extra cash around this time.

Geez, talk about being ridiculous...
pedroyamato  +   198d ago
@Hicken

It is not even a holiday! I spent my christmas working like a slave, same as 90% of the grown ppl at this country.

If you talk about sales, new year + bonus is the biggest reason. Funny how you talk about it like a pro, had never being in Japan.

LOL, damage control!

Nintendo is beating all the competition. The PS3 had two high profile games in Gundam and Drakengard 3 launch and sales barely went up.

The PS3 is cheap in Japan, has a bunch of great games, it should be selling FAR better than it is in Japan, but its not.

Wii U is just getting started like Shuhei Yoshida said. Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros are going to utterly destroy the charts when they are released.

And some people celebrate X-Mas in Japan, or at least gift giving for the holidays.
tubers  +   198d ago
Wonder if Smash 3DS is gonna destroy the Smash Wii U.
DejectedJeff  +   198d ago
@tubers
yeah, smash 3ds is a dumb move in my opinion. it was always a big system seller and if the 40 million 3ds' out there can enjoy it on the go, who would want to buy a wii u for it?
Chrischi1988  +   198d ago
Why damage control? Did I say something bad, I am happy for Nintendo and think it is a great achievement, because they never sold 100k a week in one country alone. I am pro Wii U, I dont get the hate I received for my comments, like I said something against the Wii U. I would understand that from haters of the other plattforms, but you told me, how great the Wii U does and disagree with me, even though I said the same thing... Could someone please explain whats going on?
Theyellowflash30  +   198d ago
Releasing Smash Bros on both systems was a great idea. Many people will buy both. And there is enough of a difference in graphics to justify the getting both.

The Wii U version will have more online options different characters, ect.

Its not like PlayStation All stars where its basically the same game between the Vita and PS3
Knushwood Butt  +   198d ago
Yes, good sales, but not surprising when you see how heavily Nintendo have advertised the Wii U on TV over the last few weeks.
Geobros  +   198d ago
Wow!!! Wii U is on fire at Japan...:o
JackieCruise69  +   198d ago
Wow, Wii U had a big jump, that's great. Seems like everything is doing good. :)
_QQ_  +   198d ago
This is off topic but wiiu would be so boss if it had Xboxone's feature to connect system's so you can play them via Wiiu. Imagine hooking up your PC to wiiu, you would have free offscreen play for any pc game. Just hook your gamepad up to your PC as a controller with a mod, That would be amazing.

Unreal01  +   198d ago
Well that was a bit silly.
Protagonist  +   198d ago
What is wrong with the Vita numbers? I said before and I will say it again; Nintendo creatures are the worst fanboys on the net.
pedroyamato  +   198d ago
Vita is doing fine bro! Dont worry.

Merry Christmas!
Reeze  +   198d ago
Correction: fanboys are the worst creatures on the net. Regardless of which company they support. It's great to be a fan of one company, but not to the point where you have to insult everyone for having a different opinion.

By the way, merry Christmas, everybody :)
Realplaya  +   198d ago
How do you assume that Nintendo fans are the worst because they support there system?
Because they have been teased for a inferior systems correction systems?
Because they keep getting beat up online when there system of choice doesn't move games.

You my friend are the worst comment poster in the end the only winners are the fans who purchase the systems and get great games. If anything the consoles have pushed developers to step up there game. Console numbers don't prove anything because look at te best games sold out of 80 million each sold there is no guarantee that good or great games will even move millions of games sold.

I think you should sit back relax and just play some video games as I always say unless you have stock in a company all you are doing is making the man rich.

Not a fanboy bit I'm here

Linchpin  +   198d ago
In Soviet N4G, people disagree with question.
DejectedJeff  +   198d ago
it was released november 14th 2013.
sad to see it is plummeted to 5k a week only a month after launch, lets hope it comes to europe and NA
Masterman280  +   198d ago
Every console done better thaN last week except PS Vitv TV.
ZeekQuattro  +   198d ago
Good job Nintendo especially with the Wii U. It wasn't that long ago that sales dipped below 4,000 for the Wii U one week in Japan. Nows its been outselling all but the 3DS LL for the last few of weeks.
Theyellowflash30  +   198d ago
Things are only going to go up for the Wii U and 3DS in 2014
LOL_WUT  +   198d ago
Congrats to Nintendo solid Wii U numbers ;)
Shinobi100  +   198d ago
340,000 hardware units in a week. Get out of the hardware business Nintendo. Pachter, that guy who has never been right about anything, says you should
