This week's Japanese sales include the debuts of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Project X Zone 2, Need for Speed, and more.
Wii U got a decent boost from the Splatoon bundle. I guess if you add up all those 3DS variations hardware will be slightly above PS4, so someone will be happy.
Good to see first party games doing well☺
Splatoon has sold very well in Japan. Should track to surpass 1 million units over there.
The PS4 has definitely take off in Japan, since the price cut at the beginning of October it stayed on top with great sales numbers. Great sales for Nintendo as well.
Wasn't expecting BO3 to remain in first. I'm happy that the sales for the PS4 are much better than before the price cut.
Even that, BO 3 pre order was way higher than Advance Warfare and Ghost.
Xbox deader then dead. PS4 really hitting good numbers, 2016 should be a huge year for ps4.
3DS regained the top spot just in time for Monster Hunter. Took a lot longer than I thought.
10 more days till Monster Hunter X. 3DS sales will balloon again for a few weeks.
Yeah. Combine four hardware skus of the leading handheld in a handheld-heavy market to outsell the leading console by 1282. And odds are the sales went up exactly because of MH. It's very possible that PS4'S new baseline will keep it above the 3DS regularly now. Interesting, though, that you're so fond of comparing handhelds and consoles, but only in Japan.
PS4 should remain high high with Battlefront, Fallout 4, Jojo, and others.
"Interesting, though, that you're so fond of comparing handhelds and consoles, but only in Japan." interesting comment from such a strong vita supporter who will not admit the system is almost irrelevant outside of japan. the fact is handhelds are very prominent in japan while consoles gaming interest has fallen way behind. the ps4 just hit 1.5 million even though the ps3 which was way more expensive and had a much harder time selling around the globe than the ps4, crossed the 2 million mark in less than 2 years.
Wow, this proves the reach of COD. 2 weeks in 1st place in Japan, really awesome. And people say that Japanese gamers don't give a chance to American games.
sony and nintendo dominating as usual.. Good stuff but im surprised to see COD on here.. Japan likes that???
