PS4 and Dual Shock 4 - Media Create | oprainfall

Well, the PS4 took an expected nosedive in the Media Create charts. For those keeping score at home, here’s the second week numbers for the PS4 and Wii U.

Console Week 2 Total After Week 2
PS4 65.685 374.839
Wii U 126.916 435.058

However, there is reason to take these numbers with a grain of salt. The Wii U released during the holiday season. The PS4 released in the middle of February. Also, Famitsu has reported that the system has been sold out. So, it’s possible that the PS4 will have better week-to-week numbers in the long run. We’ll have to wait and see.

Harvest Moon: Linking the New World - Harvest Goddess - Media Create | oprainfall

Over on the software side, Harvest Moon: Linking the New World topped the list with 130,782. Just waiting now on either Marvelous USA/XSEED or Natsume to announce that localization. Also of note for Marvelous AQL, they had a second new release hit the Top 20 with Valhalla Knights 3: Gold, an enhanced version of Valhalla Knights 3.

On the Nintendo side of things, Nintendo themselves have released Fossil Fighters: Infinite Gear on the 3DS with 58,329 units sold. This is the latest game in the Fossil Fighter series, which has seen localizations for both games so far. We’ll wait and see if this one comes over.

Deception IV: Blood Ties - Media Create | oprainfall

Over with Sony, Knack continues to defy its master, outselling the PS4 by a little over 1,000 units. Also, a number of games released this week for both the Vita and PS3. These would be Deception IV: Blood Ties and Infinite Stratos 2: Ignition Hearts. Infinite Stratos 2 is based on the second anime series for Infinite Stratos and will probably not be coming over. However, Deception IV is scheduled for release in North America and Europe later this month.

    The girl in the Harvest Moon screenshot looks a lot like Palutena…

    Missed in this article:
    – Half of PS4 titles in last week’s top 20 dropped from this very top 20
    – Sales of some consoles and handhelds recovered
    – Two new PSP titles (one of them is posted in the article, and the other is Bakumatsu Rock) are in the Famitsu top 20
    – I think the Dengeki’s top 50 will finally decide the fate of Pokémon X&Y’s almost-six-month top 20 inclusion run.
