Three weeks on from the cut, and with no main title to push it we still see some decent sales.
This weeks Media Create sales have come in from 4 Gamer and whilst not as strong as two weeks ago (when there was the price cut and Phantasy Star Online 2) or last week (with the release of Soul Sacrifice) all eyes were on whether it would return to the pre-cut performance of around 10,000 units a week or whether it could continue the 62k+ momentum, and it came in between the two with 36,028 and returned to the second spot in the charts after the combined 69k+ sales of the 3DS.
Considering this is three times the level of previous performance and being around the 2:1 ratio of the 3DS does anyone thiink that this is poor? It still represents 24% of the total sales last week (down from 36%) and it’s a bit lower than I hoped it would be, but with nearly 170,000 units shifted in just three weeks in Japan, Sony can be pretty pleased with the sales, especially with many more titles due out soon.
Speaking of titles, Soul Sacrifice was lasts weeks best Vita performer, dropping to fifth overall and Tale of Hearts R in fifteenth place. Senran Kagura props up the twenty.
What do you make of the sales? decent performance? Disappointing? A mark of consistancy? The start of a decline? Sound off in the comments!
