      Gonna go ahead and piggy back on this one. 8k a week. While slow, the sales are pretty reliable. And MK8 is still a boss?

    1. Most people I talked to in Japan when I was there a few weeks ago didn’t know anything about the Xbox 360, so the Xbox One will tank.

      1. If the people you talk to in Japan don’t know about MS consoles then surely it’ll flop. I mean you know sooooo many people in japan.

        1. This is a logical statement you replied with, if only I did have the power to predict the future so accurately. In Tokyo though the presence of Xbox was hard to find anywhere, and I went to tons of shops that sold games.

            Oh my gosh lawl. Only at mynintendo news does drama like this happen. Sickr has the patience of a Monk. I tip my helmet to you sir.

      1. Sasori…… i seriously think you are retarded and fucking slow as fuck in the head. You just don’t get it, all you do is post the most retarded shit about the biggest turd in gaming (cod) that everybody besides retarded trying to be adult teenagers trash talk because we know it’s a joke and a shitty game. Your playing the most milked,unchanging, unoriginal series in gaming that anybody can just pick up and play and you claim it’s something special. Your playing a yearly dlc that cost 60$ each time when it should be 10$ for the next installment and all of it’s maps.

        If you want to make a point stop talking about shitty games, stop clowning yourself, you just don’t get it. Your like something that can’t learn or something that can’t for the life of it understand…… your embarrassing yourself, just go to xbox and never look back it will solve all of your problems.

        Your so dumb you would some how manege to let a zombie in the safe heaven. If you had to pick anything out of the box you would bring a gun with no ammo and then grab a empty medication box….. you might get lucky though because zombies love brains, so they might not even go for you.

        R.I.P sasori and R.I.P his shitty tastes in videogames. In the afterlife i fucking hope you aren’t stupid enough to not no where heaven is, you would probably walk to hell thinking that’s where you need to go.

  1. It’ll be this way until Nintendo gets third parties back. Should’ve put third party characters as assist trophies in Smash and have demos for their games come packaged with Mario, Zelda, etc., cuz Nintendo fans by and large (and by sales numbers) don’t like to try new things.

    1. It’ll be what way? 1st in hand held and 1st in console sales? Sure the games don’t appear to sell as well, but besides brand new games, Nintendo still has the best selling console game and that 3ds game that has third is selling great and been out for a while. You simply don’t know what you are talking about

        1. The numbers themselves has more to do with the market…. you can only be number 1 to a certain degree. I guess what my opinion is, is that Nintendo is doing fine where slow and steady can win the race, or at least let you qualify to keep playing.

    1. Nintendo Sub-Lieutenant

      Yeah well, we’re sorry. I’m glad the Vita is doing better for itself. Hopefully the Wii U can catch up… to handheld. So that I can play MK8 with a wider variety of people. Instead of bumping into the same couple of people AGAIN AND AGAIN (Who might have been on my friends list and I just didn’t realize it) Stupid cell phone games are the enemy. Competition is better for consumers in the long run. As true gamers, we are allies with similar goals.

  2. Oh man, seeing Rise in that picture on this Nintendo site made me think that this was going to be an article about a Persona game for Wii U… You can imagine how severely disappointed I was to find out that it wasn’t. :(

  3. Interesting to see that mario kart have not hit the 1M mark in Japan. The game was release on 29/05/2014. So 3 months after it’s 650K units sold. Saying that Yokai watch hits 2.36M and was release on 10/07/2014.

    I was hoping hyrule warrior will do better than that 7.65K in two weeks that really poor….

    On the other hand PS4 does not shine at all in this region

  4. WHY? WHY the 3DS is still selling like gangbusters in Japan? They already know they will have a “new”, better and with exclusive games 3DS in a couple months, is not it?
