Japanese Charts, Aug 25 - 31: Home consoles continue slump


Home consoles continued to struggle in Japan last week, with the Wii U, PS3 and PS4 failing to light up the sales charts at all. Wii U was the best seller, managing just over 8,500 units, while the poor old Xbox 360 only managed to shift 86 units. Not a great sign of things to come for the Xbox One, which launches in the region tomorrow.

On the bright side, for Sony and Nintendo at least, software is still selling well, with PS3 topping the chart thanks to Persona 4 Arena and PS Vita coming in second with Toukiden. Sony will be happy that PS Vita sales at least remain strong.

Here's the charts.

Seems like no home console will ever do massive numbers in Japan for the foreseeable future. Only when a new anticipated game comes out will there will be a small-big bump. Good news is that should lead to more console selling games

PS4 probably won't see any notable bump until Dragon Quest Heroes comes out. That limited edition version of the console could do decently. So long as FFXV doesn't have a release date that's likely the best it can hope for though.

Also worth noting that Xbox One came out today in Japan. So that should storm the charts next week.

We already know how much the Xbox One will sell. It's in the name (I stole this joke)

I think Disgaea 5 and the other JRPG will help the PS4 a lot
