Media Create published the latest Japanese hardware/software sales.
Two wii u games in the top three, don't see that every day. Can't wait for xenoblade to come out here.
and three inside the top 10. MK8 is close to breaking a million units sold in Japan.
Dayummm. Talk about long legs.
4 Wii U titles in the top 20 charts, 3 of which in top 10 and lowest charted Wii U game is 12th and highest PS4's is on 14th place. If the same happens like last year then PS platforms will have a considerable/major drop while Nintendo platforms will be steady or a minor drop. Xenoblade X sold 85.5K first week which outsold Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii which sold 82.9K first week, this does not include digital sales of Xenoblade X which could be 5-10% or maybe more thus 90K to maybe 100K first week.
Thats pretty impressive that X beat the first game, even though the Wii had an install base several times bigger than that of the Wii U's in Japan in 2010
It means XC made a fan-base , i wonder how many of them did buy XCX and a Wii U just for it .
And it also had more competition to go against than the first game did, IIRC, making it all the more impressive. The original was also physical only, while X is both phys and digi. It's been the best seller in the Eshop since release, and the quicker loading times for the digital version makes it the more desirable version. I'm extremely curious to see what the game sold when including bundles and digital into its numbers. I won't be surprised if it's pushing 100k with those two included. Also, I dunno why Eyeofcore is getting so many downvotes. Methinks the mention of Sony left some people mad... Or it could be that a lot of people just think this game's sales are still a flop (Even though it's anything but), given all the downvotes similar posts are getting.XD
Great week for the big N!
Is this only physical? Either way great numbers for japan.
Xenoblade Chronicles X heavy hitter - 85,586 first week
i expected more from X.
Oh look. Nintendos going to make back that 1 billion they lost by next quarter. Haha sorry. Trying to throw salt on the wound. Good time to be a Nintendo fan. Now I need someone to splatoon all over my face...
did you play the server test beta? about an hour ago? Splatoon is going to be huge
