Discussion in 'GBAtemp & Scene News' started by Chary, Nov 21, 2018.



    Here are the Media Create sales figures for week #46 2018.

    Two new titles make their debut this week, with Pokemon Let's Go taking the top spot, and Fallout 76 sliding in at #2. For the fourth week in a row, we see Super Mario Party hold third place in the weekly sales roundup.

    The Nintendo Switch also sees a massive increase in sales due to the launch of the new Pokémon game, shifting over 200,000 consoles, leaving every other system in the dust this week.

    The XBO really tanks that hard in Japan?? I mean, I know it doesn't have any exclusives that Japan might like, but still...
    164 units in 1 week is really bad... This thing is selling worse than the Virtual Boy did.

    Let's hear it for the Vita - a 'dead' system outselling Microsofts current gen machine with 10x sales figures... in one week!

    It's incredible how much PS Vita sells on Japan to this day. Not only the Vita is pretty much already discontinued, it doesn't have a lot of good games compared to others. Sure it has quite awesome games, but it gets beat by anything else on the market. And it stills outsells the XB1 incredibly. It's crazy.

    Disappointing that the Vita didn't do so well over here, and yet it still outsells the XB1 in JP. Had they only marketed it more effectively, or even waited a couple more years to develop it so they can sell it at a lower price.

    Every. Fucking. Thread.

    Japan doesn't like Xbox that much. It was true for the 360 (1.66 million consoles sold as of today) and even the original Xbox (0.53 million consoles). Why? Because the Xbox doesn't have the same games that are available on Nintendo or Sony consoles and that Japan prefers. Where are games like Persona 5 or Nioh? On the Playstation. What are the Xbox exclusives that are played by everyone in Japan? None.

    By the way, Microsoft sold more than 24 million "Xbones" in America and almost 11 in Europe. In comparison, the NIntendo DS "only" sold 33 million units in Japan. Let's all laugh at them XDDDDD

    But yeah, EA is bad. Like share and subscribe (this is for the guy who will rip off this comment to make new edgy YouTube content).

    PS: there's also the thing that "X" means something bad in Japan and the last Xbox One is called "X". It shouldn't be that important but thankfully Nintendo has taught us that by flunking the name (Wii U) you risk losing millions.

    he is right about everything else though.
    but seeing the situation with sony now, I can see the tables turning for the next generation.

    Ok cool, honestly I was just posting .. hello .. at random. So I would be allowed to send post messages to people. Anyways. Now that I am looking at the thread it is very interesting. I luv Zelda/Mario/Nin. So what sticks out to me is that the Breath of the Wild is still atop the charts being a year and a half old. As well as MK8 and odyssey still being up there being over a year old as well. I know not having much to choose from (if you have a switch) has alot to do with it as well. Compared to other consoles. But still.
