How to review and know sales



Last week, Japan had only one vital recover and it was Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for PlayStation 4 that finished on tip with 128,724 units sole in a entrance week. Media Create gives us a demeanour during video games sales information for program and hardware from a week of May 9 by May 15, 2016.


Here’s how Uncharted 4 compares to first-week sales of a before 3 titles from a series:

  • (2007) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune16,702
  • (2009) Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – 53,827
  • (2011) Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – 124,989
  • (2016) Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – 128,724


That puts a fourth installment as a highest-debuting Uncharted game in Japan, despite only by about 4k over Drake’s Deception. Not bad during all.


Following, we have Kirby: Planet Robobot during #2 with 24,298 copies sole in a second week, and Yo-kai Watch: Sangokushi at #3 with 10,969 units. At #4, #5, and #6 are a contingent of Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyu 2016, that sole 9,510 for PS Vita, 8,473 for PS4, and 5,928 for PS3, mixing for 23,911 units opposite all 3 platforms.


Dragon Quest Monsters Joker took a #7 mark with 5,767 copies sold. And a common 3 in #8, #9, and #10 with Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition that sole 5,693 copies, Splatoon with 5,237 copies, and Super Mario Maker with 4,030 units sole final week.


Overall, program sales took a bit of a dive this past week opposite a top-20. To put things into perspective, a sales figure for #10 would’ve put it during #18 a week prior, that didn’t have any new releases, so it seems like there was a bit of a Golden Week hangover going on final week. As distant as hardware sales go, there was decrease in sum sales for a week, solely for a Xbox One, that saw an boost by 55 units.


The top-20 draft for a week is as follows:
