This week's Japanese software sales include first week sales for Smash Bros. 3DS and Destiny.
It was true 1,000,000 for Smash Bros finally. I hope to see nice numbers to the west too.
| XB1 | - was 25.764 | Now 3.015 Well, you had a good run. Super Smash 3DS : 944,644 copies I say, goddamn!!
Amazing numbers for Super Smash Bros, but I don't think anybody expected anything less.
You would be surprised at what some of the nay-sayers have been expecting.XD
This is the 3DS version so yea, I kinda expected this. Will the Wii U version do as well though is the question.
In Japan alone, probably not, but WW I expect Smash on Wii U to hit over 1 million sales in it's first week. Kart and Smash are to Wii U, as Halo and COD are to XB. They are massive sellers among the core and casual alike for their platform.
Wow! 91,227 for destiny (ps4). Honestly wasn't expecting this.
Destiny did great on PS4 and PS3.
After seeing it top a list of games to come (PS3 + PS4 was combined, but PS4 version alone was still high) I expected it to do at least 50k units. Surprised to see almost 100k copies on PS4 alone and 150k between the 2 PS's. Also surprised to see that not only did it do good, it was a system seller for the PS4 there as well causing numbers to jump from 7,300 up to 23,000.
Smash outsold kart in japan totals already
True but that is a Wii U to 3DS comparison. Everything sees better on 3DS especially in Japan.
this is true
Never underestimate the power of the handheld in Japan. Of course, Mario Kart 7 is the second best selling 3DS game at over 9 million sold world-wide.
Japan really does love mobile gaming but it's also because mobile gaming RIGHT NOW probably does have better games overall the the "next gen" consoles as well. I know I hardly have put down my 3DS and Vita. Oh well ... out of bubbles ... so this is my last post on this thread.
Thank you for your brilliant replies mate. :)
Holy crap destiny gave the ps4 a good bump.
Yeah, it took away the launch sales of the Xbox One the week before.
holy shit @ smash bros
