Best-sellers are tallied, and July predictions for hardware and software in Japan.
Vita with 3 games on there. Not bad, compared to what was going on at the beginning of the year. Not fantastic, but not bad either. And the immortal PSP slips one in as well, heh.
Because in Japan it has must have exclusives that Japanese Gamers wants
notice how many exclusives PS3 is getting. good job 3DS - 158,000 Vita - 74,100 PS3 - 50,432 WiiU - 25,995 PSP - 25,776 where is 360??
Probably at the bottom with 7 units sold.
These days it sells 300-400 units a week, so maybe 1600 for the month of June.
PSV Toukiden sold almost twice more than PSP version? O_O! I WANT GUNDAM BREAKER ENGLISH VERSION! >:E
Vita + PS4 FTW
yet not no must have exclusives that will push both
It always surprises me how popular handhelds are over there. I guess its because most japanese developers focus more on handheld games than consoles.
Japanese love RPG games and since DS and PSP days JRPG are developed more for handheld it's cheaper to develop and people can level up their characters on the road,as for me i find leveling up in home consoles is boring
That because people in Japan are always walking everywhere.
How do you walk and play at the same time??
uh walk and play your handheld just as your using a phone duh. That why handheld and mobile devices sell in Japan because they take trains, buses, and walk to places.
Go vita. You made it to the top 5. Now do that in the west lol. Price drop+GTA V spinoff=Sales in NA/EU.
If the game pad was Portable I wonder if it would sale more Wii U units in Japan?
If you could use it like Vita+PS4? Likely.... well, maybe. The controller might be a bit big to take with you.
I'm still surprised Last of Us made it to the top.
Animal Crossing still in the top 10. Japan sure loves it's dobutsu no mori
