  • shogunknight

    Great sales start for Persona 3ds, i guess atlus will make more for the platform in the future. Hey, PS4 went up and i never knew rain hadnt been released yet in japan. WiiU had a little drop, at least its going to have a good lineup of games to boost it for holiday

    • Elvick

      I think it just got a retail release. I know it did, but I can’t imagine the digital copy didn’t come out already (it’s a PlayStation CAMP game after all… which is in Japan). And obviously that wouldn’t be tracked here.

    • Shippoyasha

      Maybe for the Q series. Not sure about something like a Persona 5 port or something, as the Vita has more horsepower to pull it off. Not to mention Atlus is very comfortable at making Playstation games or even Xbox ports.

  • The Moeshit

    “PSP”

    Goddamn, what a persistent one.

    • Elvick

      It’s going out of (or already has gone out of) production, people are stockpiling.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Very nice hardware push for the 3DSLL, pretty sure it’s thanks to Persona

    The Wii U took a big hit though

    Nice PS4 sales surge

    Wonder what’s up with the PSP, may be on sale due to the recent announcement

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    Can’t wait for Persona Q, glad to see Wii U doing fine even if sales dropped.

  • Ping92

    Stock clearing sale for PSP i see

  • dboyz

    PS Vita…you’ll be missed T.T

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Did someone steal yours?

      • dboyz

        looks like Vita was born to be dead in other parts of the world (excl. Japan)…. =/

        • desponent

          Ironically it has better game than the “alive” portable.

        • Homero21

          Well its not like in America is dead too… just because you dont like rpg doesn’t mean this console is crap…it’s better than 3DS (I like my 3DS but the graphics dude…), I hate that Sony doesn’t give us more Uncharted or fatal frame (nintendo own it) in his “so beloved portable”

    • Anime10121

      Vita still has plenty of life left in it…in Japan

      • natchu96

        Well, I always knew it was awesome that I’m more a JRPG person.

        Time to learn Japanese now!

    • desponent

      T.T

      Oh wait, there are hundreds or even thousands of hours left for my Vita current and upcoming game collection. But T.T anyway to be hip.

  • Elvick

    Wonder why PS4 went up. Surely not for Wolfenstein.

    • Budgiecat

      more like why is PSP up???

      • Fujisawa Ruuzaa

        I think because its the last batch of PSP ever going to be officially released

        • Budgiecat

          seems silly

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

            Japan still has fans playing consoles like the Dreamcast. If you have a huge library of UMD games and your PSP dies you’re screwed. I wouldn’t be surprised if people were buying two each, it’s going to shoot up in price after Sony stops manufacturing them

    • Duo Maxwell

      Free FIFA14 bundle.

      • Elvick

        Ah, neat.

  • Budgiecat

    Wolfenstein sales are low:

    1)JPN don’t like gritty FPS
    2)JPN was allies with da Nazis lol

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Well S-E has been seeing success bringing over western games like Call of Duty, they’re also bringing Diablo 3 over.

      GTAV did very well in Japan too for 2K games, a few of my friends imported Watch Dogs

    • desponent

      3) It’s a bad game

      • Six

        Did you play it?

        • desponent

          Maybe.

          • LustEnvy

            Meaning, no, he hasn’t.

            • desponent

              If that put your mind at ease.

      • Shippoyasha

        Wolfenstein New Order is pretty great. A wonderful throwback to classical FPS gameplay with an open map.

  • https://twitter.com/Stealth___ Stealth

    Persona Q sold wonderfully.

  • bloodiOS

    This is the last we’ll see of PSP on this chart… about fucking time!

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Lol well what I’m hoping for is devs stop gimping games because there’s a PSP version

    • miyamoto

      PSP is immortal!

      • bloodiOS

        Doesn’t matter, as long that it’s off the chart.

  • DarthBrian

    What came out for Xbox 360 this week that gave it such a huge increase in hardware numbers? :p

  • Renaldi Saputra

    we will miss you PSP

  • Bob Obb

    lol PS4 getting outsold by Vita. Sony seriously fucked up by ignoring Japan, but I guess that’s the trend with many developers too.

    • Manny Being Manny

      handhelds outselling consoles is normal in Japan, they’re more interested in portable systems.

    • Zackasaur

      They didn’t ignore Japan. lol The sales explosion will come with the right Japanese games… Just like the PS3.

      Sony can’t command FFXV to be finished. lol

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        They could, if they still had stock in Square Enix. <_<

        • Elvick

          8% shares (I believe) wouldn’t let them do shit.

          Hell, they couldn’t even keep FFXIII or FFXV as exclusives. And they got fuck all out of those shares for Vita.

  • Six

    Xbox 360 up by 30. Beast mode engaged.

    • desponent

      Is it year of Xbox yet in Japan?
      http://abload.de/img/kid20rc1z.gif

      • Six

        Well, it’s certainly not Year of the PS4.

        • desponent

          Of course, it’s the year of mobile phone.

  • bldudas

    Wow, an Xbox 360 game charted!

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Well, it’s an EXP game, lol. A niche game for a niche console XD

  • PrinceHeir

    Wow Persona Q on fire :P

    Doubt that US or EU will match those sales, probably 90-100k at best.

    Atlus Japan must be happy as hell right now :)

    So long PSP!! Don’t worry in a 2-3 years PS3 will soon join you unfortunately :

    • natchu96

      I doubt anybody expected a P3/P4 crossover to possibly fail.

      It even drags in the Etrian Odyssey fanbase, it was gonna sell hard :P

  • SatsukiYumizuka

    I guess we can expect more persona spinoffs instead of original smt games now

    • PrinceHeir

      For shame :(
