Media Create published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
Xbone in the triple digits....LOL Ps4 got a sales spike I wonder why? Driveclub maybe? The new 3DS did great didn't they make a monster hunter bundle for it? Well it's impressive nonetheless. Vita's doing normally Wii u is pretty low I wonder why?
So between 11K and 6K there's a huge difference now?
Almost double, I guess
Ang guess what? Both numbers are still beyond pathetic.
the ups and downs... Up: 3DS, 3DSLL, PS4, 360 Down: Vita, Vita TV, WiiU, PS3, PSP, XB1 New: New 3DS, New 3DSLL
When Wii U was doing over 10k vs ps4 less than 6.5k it was called bad sales
thanks Patcher :D
Wii U sales should increase somewhat during Smash Wii U release month.
Vita's doing normally Nope.... Vita is not doing normally cause in the last media create Vita is around 14 k.
RIP vita and X1 in Japan New 3ds will start filling in the vita grave
Driveclub and FIFA boosted it
Makes no sense.
Your trolling makes no sense, ritsuka.
Well, there are Western people that live in Japan. Those Football fans eat FIFA right up. I'm sure there's some Japanese fans as well as some European immigrants. So yeah, it makes sense.
And the white PS4
FIFA seems pretty popular this time around. Even on PSN in Japan, FIFA is ranked 2nd for digital downloads. I was surprised.
LOL. 4 3DS SKUs, it dominates. Xbox is dead and no hopes left. Playstation is in between.
Yah the two new versions sold over two hundred thousand units in two days alone infact. So yah regardless of there being several different models now it dominates over there and that's not debatable.
3DS LL xenoblade chronicles bundle after this maybe?
PS4 got a decent bump in Japan.
God damn, Japan love their 3DS's O.o Each week they just seem to be dominating the board.
I feel kinda sick seeing all those iterations of Nintendo handhelds doing so damn well. What is it with Japan and Nintendo's handhelds? Dating games?
Japanese gamers are not all jacked up on theoretical specs and resolution like the masses of graphics posers from are side of the pond. 3ds sells well there because it has the best lineup of fun to play games and that's what they like also its a handheld.
3DS is the handheld with the most support, both third party and first party. Japan is big on handheld gaming. Therefore, 3DS is the most popular handheld. It's not rocket science.
The Xbox1's sales if they keep going south could potentially make what support it now have dwindle, and could also make Japanese developers rethink their stance on exclusive support. Either way something has to spark interest and fast!
oh shyte Xbone hit sub 1k already =O and dunno is the new3ds sales good relative to other hardware revisions?
Nintendo could release a New New 3DS next week and the same thing would happen.
Exactly! It's unbelievable to look at really. I saw adocument about Japan and their youth up until 40yo are mostly single people with no desire to couple up or have a family. Does Nintendo have many dating games for all the single men or wth is it? Who is buying all these consoles?
Wow less than 1k. Microsoft needs to work harder on selling XB1s in Japan. The PS4 is starting to see higher sales in Japan which is great to see. As for Nintendo im not surprised at how well the new 3DS is selling at launch.
Wow... 809 units in Japan and it’s only been a little over a month.. It’s abysmal. :(
It will get even worst for the X1 on Japan but Microsoft knew it and still decided to launch so let hem take the shame.
Oh man...that X1 number. I can say right now any japanese devs, even the small one, will think thrice if they got an offer to make exclusive for X1, especially after watching that number.
Making a New 3ds really brought in new sales. Now if Nintendo would make a New Wii U and maybe bring in more sales. That way third-party developer would not have excuses to not make games for them. (Assassin's creed and Grand theft auto)

When one of last month's Media Create sales were released, someone on here commented: "I think Japan is just done with consoles. Their almost a completely casual market now." I replied: "Say that again after the New 3DS & New 3DS XL & Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate release next week. Those numbers will be off the chartz. You're right in one sense. Home consoles are weakening in Japan. But handheld consoles like 3DS & Vita will continue to sell well. The movement is toward gaming on the go, that includes handheld consoles. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is #1 on Amazon's best sellers list at the moment. I expect to see a boom for the 3DS in the US, as well." I think 261, 873 consoles in a week is doing pretty decent. That comment I made at that time got 0 likes and 2 dislikes. Just reinforces what I already knew: I'm smarter than 99.9% of people who comment on message boards because I use this rare thing called "common sense". http://n4g.com/news/1596665...
i wanna visit japan just to see how different their lifestyle is and why handheld gaming is so preferred.
