no xbox games

one ps4 game

and handhelds are just killing it.

Super smash bros for 3ds is selling amazing wonder how well thats going to sell over here.

Neonridr1264d ago

my guess is it will sell pretty good in NA.

Editing post cos what i said was incorrect.

Do expect this to sell amazing in the West though.

G20WLY1264d ago

Yeh, that's one way of cutting it tim...

Another would be that over half of the top 20 sold on PlayStation - considering Nintendo's recent releases, I'm quite surprised at that, but it's true nonetheless.

The 10th Rider1264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

I think that's partially because of Sony's more frequent release schedule...A lot of those (7) are new titles that'll drop off after a week or so whereas Nintendo's have a bit more staying power (only 2 news titles and quite a few that have been on there for months.)

It'll be interesting to see how Japan plays out in the long run. Sales-wise they've been all over the place recently.

I can't click on the link, how many units did Danganronpa Another Episode sell ?

jjonez181264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

3. [PSV] Danganronpa: Another Episode – 70,596 / NEW

A pretty good number.

Considering all the other games, the poor sales of console games over there in general, and the fact that Platinum's Games generally sells better overseas, I'm surprised and delighted to see that Bayonetta 2 is still in the charts at all.
And it's part of the top 15, too.
That's certainly better than I expected!

"If it's still got poor numbers compared to the first game after comparing their first full weeks side-by-side, then I'll agree [it failed in Japan]."

OT: Not a bad debut for Fatal Frame. This was around the same FF4 did in Japan its first week, but with a much larger install base on the Wii.

wonderfulmonkeyman1264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

And I stand by my word.
Its first week in Japan is a failure, and it's all up to the west to make the game a success now.
Luckily, this is where Platinum sells best, and this doesn't change the fact that it's still on the charts when everyone thought it would drop out of the charts entirely.

Well mate, you got your "one week" Bayo 2 number right now and not "only two days" excuse just like you said to me from last week. So i hope you don't spam that comment again like you did last week.

wonderfulmonkeyman1264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

I won't.
The sales were poor.
But the fact that it's still on the charts, despite that, is a good sign, so I still feel it's going to do well overseas.
It hasn't flopped entirely quite yet, though Japan sales are a failure.

Concertoine1264d ago

Err, i didnt think it would drop second week. I expected more like 10k or more as well.

wonderfulmonkeyman1264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

Welcome to the minority.
Most sites I've visited lately have had their fair share of people expecting the game to drop straight to the bottom of the charts, if not off of them entirely, due to the first two days.

Btw, do we have a source for the digital sales yet? I don't think media create includes those...

Knushwood Butt1264d ago

Yeah, I was thinking around 10K too.

GodGinrai1264d ago

handheld console games ruling the roost...again. I have said it before and I will say it again. Consoles are now the niche in japan.

izumo_lee1264d ago

Oh man the numbers for Bayonetta 2 & Fatal Frame are embarrassingly disheartening. Also upsetting that Fated Paradox 2 sold so poorly.

I guess all these games have a better chance on making it overseas to compensate the poor sales.

Dunban671264d ago

I Bet Fatal Frame would sell better in the West- Why the heck don t they localize it!!!

Concertoine1264d ago

Actually this is pretty average for a FF game. The extra advertising sort of evened its performance despite the small install base.

FF4: 28k first week
FF2 wii edition: 20k
