It has been yet another encouraging week for Sony and its PlayStation 4 console as sales have boomed thanks to the PlayStation 4 Slim and Persona 5. However, it was Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro on the PlayStation Vita that was the number one title this week. Here’s the best-sellers in Japan.

  1. I look at the sales figures in Japan and it hurts very bad.furthermore I also think Nintendo has made a big mistake by given up on the wii u now.it way too early in the world we leave now when people expect things to happen before it happens. 3.6M units sold is really Nintendo’s fault for not providing enough units since March. They could have reached 4m if they were smarter.

    1. The machine is a flop. It needs to be abandoned immediately. You are right about one thing, its Nintendo’s fault. They did so much damage that it cannot be rectified unless they release something new.

  2. Still no sign of FedshitForce. I wonder if it’s safe to say the game is a total fucking flop at this point. *shrug*

    Look at those PS4 sales! @.@ And if you add up the sales of all 3DS incarnations (including 2DS), the 3DS has sold 33,898 units. It’s not nearly as impressive as the PS4’s nearly 50k but close enough. Grand Theft Auto 5 sure is a stubborn game. It refuses to stay down for long in any of the sales charts.
