As for competition. Well, that came from Animal Crossing: New Leaf and PS3 title, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2.

PS Vita did manage to get a game into the top ten thanks to Muramasa Rebirth at number eight, while also having a few others, namely Soul Sacrifice and One Piece in the top twenty.

The irony is I've never had a RROD but my mate has (Guess it's the luck of the draw)

I've had one broken PS3 and about four broken 360's since launch.

I've never had a RROD, but my XBOX when it gets rolled out looks pretty on screen, but sounds like it's going to blow up when it gets going.

I haven't had a broken PS3 yet but I did get RROD on Xbox 360. Luckily enough it was just before my 1 year warranty ran out, so I sent it away and they sent me a new Xbox 360.

Holy shit those are some appalling sales for Dragon Quest X. All time low for that franchise it seems... and that was the biggest title the Wii U had left for Japan this year as well :/

Vita doing bad again this week. if it continues this trend the Wii U might even outsell it next week haha. But overall it was a poor week of sales all over.

Good to see Luigi still on top, well deserved it's a great game and is selling well everywhere. Nice to see some Wii U games charting too, higher positions would have been nicer, but after the top 3 there isn't a wide range seperating the other 17.

Professor Laytons sales seem rather small compared to the previous titles. Unless the millions they sell is mainly in EU/US.

Layton is REALLY popular in the UK and the EU. UK got the anime film some time before the Americans did because of it's popularity

" Vita doing bad again this week. if it continues this trend the Wii U might even outsell it next week haha" - Still the second best selling console in Japan this week though, and unlike the Wii U there are actually games on the Vita's release schedule in Japan this month. Nothing major of course, but there are releases there at least, and considering the Wii U still couldn't come close to Vita sales last week despite two major releases hitting for it at once when Vita had nothing new coming out I'm not sure what it is that's supposed to keep Wii U sales north of 10k at this point for the remainder of the year. It's funny that "beating" the Vita seems to have become something of an aspiration for the Wii U in the eyes of Nintendo fans at this point. I can still remember that guy who liked to boast on these threads about how even though Wii U sales in Japan sucked at least "It wasn't doing as badly as the Vita"... I notice that guy stopped posting here completely once it started doing far worse than the Vita. Go figure.

Last week? Vita still had it's price slashed in half and had Muramasa as a new release. No new releases this week and AGAIN the sales have dropped a huge amount. Looking at the releases it seems Japan has a bunch of re-releases on the Vita at the end of the month. Which could boost sales. Wii U only has Pokemon..... dunno if they include downloaded sales in the list tho. I'd be happy to see the Wii U sell anything at this point. Most of my friends own one so that's all that matters. We know that Nintendo will continue to support the console for a while at least.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
