      1. Look again, the only Sony console down (from last week) was the PS4.

        Everything else went up, even the 360 lol

      2. 8 million vitas < 34 million 3ds.
        Your argument is always invalid.

      3. No, my friend, it’s not, merely the game is selling more, which is good, games are good, regardless of console, and it’s good for sales to occur. Meanwhile, Nintendo has plenty more to offer.

      4. You… Nevermind. GLaDOS took care of ya. xD

  1. Wow….of course Sword Art Online would be the first one. o-o
    The anime was so good! Too bad it has too many haters hating on the anime itself…

    Umm…Wow I guess? Poor Wii U….I hope the sales go up around the last week of May, you know, cause of Mario Kart 8 and stuff. o-o

    1. The first part of Sword Art Online was good. Then it got weird during the second half. Still, I can’t wait until the game comes out here in the West.

      So glad they’re localizing it

    1. Aeolus don’t be arrogant and prideful like before. Remember pride comedy before a fall. You are set for another fall. Next time I reply to your comment will be to highlight your face plant. 3DS is calling you and Sony to say :

      “Hello I run this place.”

      1. It’s not the real Aeolus, that’s just a poor racist, homophobic garbage clone…

  2. WiiU is doing really well with a lack of any real games releasing, I doubt the Japanese will buy spiderman 2 in droves. PS4 has finally realized in Nippon the 3DS is emperor, king and president all in one. Even with a rhythm game the 3DS is running things. What happens when nintendo releases another ten word title for it :).

    1. “WiiU is doing really well with a lack of any real games releasing.”

      lol. I give you credit for trying to spin the numbers favorably for Nintendo, but…no.

      1. Silly, troll. Every week the thing is selling thousands of consoles so that’s pretty damn good. Now if this was a for the monthly sales, then you’d be right in saying the Wii U is doing terribly right now. *points to the bridge* Now go back under there til you’re “needed” again.

    1. God I hope you are more mature & smarter than you lead us to believe. If not… Tsk tsk…
