Japan sales: Wii U is beating PS4!

#1yeti44Posted 3/12/2014 5:45:17 AM
Looking at the first 3 weeks, PS4 is tracking significantly behind Wii U:

Wii U (26.250 / 31.500) - LD: December 8th, 2012
308.570
130.653 ( -57.7%)
122.356


PS4 LD: (41.979 / 46.179) - February 22nd, 2014
322.083
52.697 (-83.6%)
30.766

Remember when the trolls said PS4 would outsell Wii U in Japan in one month? LOL

Best game of 2013 = The Last of Us. It won the most game of the year awards.

Accurate statistics are the ultimate troll.

I suppose the fact that the Wii U launched during the holiday season means nothing to your ill suited comparison. The PS4 is probably going to continue to fall in Japan with few exceptions like the release of MGS and FF11, but its still clearly going to outsell the Wii U there handily.

Ah look. One of the aforementioned trolls who assured us PS4 would destroy Wii U in Japan. Here to admit you were wrong?

Japan's economy is worse than North America's at the moment, and that's saying something because we're both pretty bad.

Here in America everyone thinks the government will solve all their problems, so it's ok to rack up a lot of debt or be irresponsible with your money. I imagine it's not the same in Japan since they have one of the lowest tax rates in the world.

How is it an ill suited comparison? The Ponies told us there were OVER A MILLION pre-orders! Then when it sold less than 1/3 of that, they said "it's still a good launch, wait for next week!"

Week 2 came, sales dropped 83%, and the trolls said "b-b-but what if it's out of stock!"

Now week 3 is here and we see another massive drop.

Wii U will easily be the dominant console in Japan this gen. The numbers do not lie.

1.6m wiius sold since launch. That's awful.

PS4 will outsell that in no time. Mind you the PS4 keeps selling out while the wiiu had loads of stock. Demand is high for the PS4 while the same can't be said for wiiu.

It really wouldn't matter much in this case. Japan typically doesn't see a significant holiday bump, there's sometimes a boost in the last week of the year and the first week of the new year but that's about it.


You can check out the last few media creates from last year and you'll note hardware does not significantly improve in November / December

There's little game-related spikes here and there but there's no Christmas-level across-the-board boost.

So why is PS4 software dropping so much? Also shortages? Looks like pretty much all of these games are in stock at Play-Asia.
