    The Wii U is gradually slipping back to where it was before while the 3DS just keeps on selling. On the bright side, Liege has been approved for the Wii U (so you Wii U owners better go and back it on Kickstarter.)

    • Locksus

      I’d certainly hope not. W101 is coming soon enough so we’ll have to see whether it moves any units in Japan.

      Probably not a lot, though.

      • bloodiOS

        Well, Platinum Games rarely gets the attentions they deserve…

        • Pyrofrost

          True, but if any game they put out is going to push units, it will more likely Bayo 2 than Wonderful 101.

          • bloodiOS

            True enough, but who knows when it’s going to be released…

        • Locksus

          True enough. It makes me a little sad inside, to be honest. I loved Bayonetta and Vanquish and I’m glad that Bayonetta is getting a sequel.

  • McPoo

    As much as it’d be nice to see the Wii U gain more love, they so sorta deserve it to flop, at least for a little while. It really is a crap console at this point in its life.

  • Kurisu Makise

    Woot, Toukiden still selling. Hopefully the word of mouth continues and it becomes the best selling Vita software to date, however it’s just crawling into 200k so it might not make it ;-; Oh wow, Vita back ontop and WiiU down…not…promising. Oh wow, PS3 is also down too =(

    • Elvick

      Can’t imagine it beating out Uncharted’s sales.

      • Kurisu Makise

        I should probably have prefaced that with “in Japan”. Uncharted, CoD:BO, and AC3:Lib will be tough to beat worldwide anytime soon. Isn’t Uncharted #1 undisputed for Vita sales so far?

        • Elvick

          Yup, Uncharted is the highest seller so far.

          • Kurisu Makise

            Then I’m looking forward to my playthrough all the more, just wish I had a bigger memory card. I will say, if there’s any game to top Uncharted’s sales on Vita, it’ll either be the sequel or FFType-0 and that’s only a maybe…GE2 being dual platform won’t beat it for sure.

  • shogunknight

    Hmm, not a bad drop in hardware sales for WiiU and Vita. Pikmin3 dropped really low, i guess its not much of a system seller. Mind-0 and dragons crown are next, wonder how many units wiiU, ps3 and vita will sell

    • garf02

      yeah, it no bad if you take in account that until PKM 3, WiiU never reached above 10K units per week

  • Raiu

    Here I thought Pikaman 3 is gonna sell more WiiU systems… I guess it’s not a system seller then… What’s next to save it? Legend of Zelda Windwaker HD perhaps?

  • Elvick

    Level-5 really damaged the Little Battlers brand. *sigh* They need to stop being stupid with it.

  • AdamBoy64

    I like that Mario and Luigi artwork. Looks heaps good.
    I’m guessing Dream Team is the game I expected Sticker Star to be.

    The 3DS lineup is pretty solid stuff.
