Media Create has published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
holy shit the 3ds is rising Seems like more games is doing the trick and OOT hasnt even launched mario 3ds, kart, kid icarus for the holidays oooo shit is it gunna move. @ sinncross Its dirt cheap and it gets the most game support because its been on the market so long, thats why
RE: Mercs 3D released during this period but the PSP has remained the top hardware for the week... did not expect that. PSP is definitely a very popular device in Japan.
3DS is rising but the boost was largely because of the Resident Evil 3DS game. Good to see them getting a boost but man the PSP is huge over there. The biggest 3DS game release by far and PSP still kept the number one spot. It'll be interesting to see how Japan takes to the PSV
probably very similar to the psp for the first 5 years. Its expensive. And in japan exclusives/price are everything. If they arent the majority........... But OOT, overclock, cave story is soon. That should do good
It's just as expensive as the 3DS, but the value is there. Much more tech in the Vita than in the 3DS. I own a 3DS, but even I know that the 250 I paid for it was a little higher than it should have been. I think the Vita will take off a lot more quickly in Japan than the 3DS just because theres so much more you can do with it.
$250 for a 3DS is like a $125 straight into Nintendo's pocket. Hell even more I would think.
3DS is on the rise!! Its thanks to One Piece and Resident Evil
PS2! What a machine, 11 years on and the King still lives!
Refuses to pass away, freaking immortal lol O-T PSP is huge in Japan and what's up with the wii numbers? damn low...
I think that they should put an easter egg in a game, where you encounter a giant ps2-boss which has quotes like "I will never die". Would be hilarious if Microsoft put something like that in one of their games :D
PSP - Solid as ever, it's catching to 3DS YTD sales but that would probably change. 3DS - Saying all it needed was to get fed some games. PS3 - Increasing back to normal levels DS - As expected Wii - Life support 360 - ... PS2 - Immortal
My god what is it with the Wii decline over there? Is it really THAT bad?
They haven't received the price drop that Europe and America got but even the effect of a price drop would not last for long imo.
