Another week of sales is in the books for Japan, and strong lineup of new games has Nintendo surging ahead. However, the number one spot belongs to PlayStation 3 title Gran Turismo 6 with an impressive 200,000 copies sold in its first week. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!
The numbers for the past week in Japan are in, and Nintendo’s got something to smile about. Despite not having any major releases this week, Wii U’s numbers are up from last week (which saw the release of Super Mario 3D World), and 3DS numbers are up as well. Numbers for other consoles remained relatively similar from last week. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.
Sony took a big step towards popularizing Vita in Japan this week with the launch of Vita TV. As this week’s Media Create numbers show, it’s off to a solid start, with Vita unseating 3DS in total consoles sold for the week. Of course, it got a ton of help from the release of God Eater 2 as well. Hit the jump for the breakdown.
The numbers are in for the past week in Japan, and you may be surprised to see who’s on top. After impressive early sales numbers, Pokémon X & Y have lost their throne to EA’s Battlefield 4. Meanwhile, both Wii U and Vita appear to be slipping back down after some recent surges.
Well, there’s a headline I wasn’t expecting to write today! This week’s Japanese sales numbers show 3DS finally starting to come down from its incredible numbers that were fueled by the combination of Monster Hunter 4 and Pokémon X & Y, and Wii U sales have multiplied by nearly fifteen. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.
Another week of Japanese sales data is in the books, and Pokémon X & Y continue to hold the top spot, despite a handful of new PlayStation 3 games as competition. Meanwhile, hardware sales are slumping all over, and Wii U sales have hit an all-time low. Nintendo could sure use a 3DS-style turnaround for their home console!
Tearaway, a charming little adventure from the creators of LittleBigPlanet, may not be getting all the hype due to the fact that it launches on Vita the same day PlayStation 4 comes out, but it’s definitely worth your attention. Tearaway takes full advantage of all of Vita’s unique features as you navigate a beautiful papercraft world. You can catch the new trailer after the jump.
A little over a month ago, Monster Hunter 4 broke the record for fastest-selling 3DS game in Japan with an insane opening week that saw it pull in over 2 million sales in just a few days. That record would be short-lived, as Pokémon X & Y had an even better opening week. It’s only fitting that they should be the top two games of the week now. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.
The sales numbers for the month of September in the US have arrived, and it’s been quite the interesting month! 3DS has taken the number one overall spot for hardware sales for the fifth straight month, and that streak is not likely to end seeing as Pokémon X & Y will be fueling its October numbers.
Meanwhile, Xbox 360′s nearly three year long reign as the highest-selling home console in the US has ended at 32 months as PlayStation 3, aided by a Grand Theft Auto V bundle, has taken the top spot. Wii U is still well behind the competition, but a price cut and a bundle with The Wind Waker HD combined to triple Wii U’s sales in September. Hit the jump for more monthly figures from NPD.
As indicated by the sales count of over 4 million in two days, Pokémon X & Y are off to a fast start. Nearly half of that total comes from Japan, where the games sold over 1.8 million in their first two days. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V made its Japan debut, and Sony’s Vita had its strongest week in months.
This weeks software and hardware sales numbers for Japan are in, and Monster Hunter 4 continues to dominate with virtually no competition. After nearly a month on the market, it’s still selling strong with another 140,000 units sold this week, bringing its lifetime total to over 2.5 million. Meanwhile, hardware numbers are down across the board, but none more so than Vita.
I’m no stranger to the Mortal Kombat series and the creators behind it. Growing up during the series prime allowed me to experience not only its best and worst, but Midway’s finest as well. That being said, Midway has been no more for some time now and Warner Bros has picked up some of its finest with NetherRealm Studios. The newest creation to come from NetherRealm was Injustice: Gods Among Us, a brawler like Mortal Kombat that was set within an alternate DC Universe. The game was received well and had its own slew of characters released over time, but what’s next for this popular fighting game? Read More
