Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

PSP Sales Nearly Match Wii-U, PlayStation All-Stars Flops in Japan

Posted on Wednesday, February 6 @ 06:17:46 Eastern by Heath_Hindman

How many copies of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale do you think Sony intended to sell in Japan during its debut week? Two-hundred thousand? One-hundred thousand? Or at least half that, 50k? Whatever the goal was, I assure you it was much, much higher than 12,000 units. Sadly for the company, that's all that the PS3 version of its multiplayer brawler could manage. The Vita version failed to chart, meaning whatever it sold fell below 6,100. Below lies Media Create's best-seller list, spanning January 28 to February 3.
1. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 65,740
2. [3DS] Fantasy Life - 20,606
3. [PS3] DmC: Devil May Cry - 15,157
4. [3DS] New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 12,546
5. [PS3] PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale  - 11,758
6. [3DS] Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - 11,330
7. [PS3] Accel World: Kasoku no Chouten - 10,551
8. [PSV] Demon Gaze - 10,424
9. [WII] Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Super Deluxe Edition - 10,125
10. [PSP] Accel World: Kasoku no Chouten - 8,633
11. [3DS] Inazuma Eleven Go 2: Chrono Stone - 7,754
12. [PS3] Kamisama to Unmei Kakumei no Paradox - 7,606
13. [3DS] Paper Mario: Sticker Star - 7,537
14. [PS3] Hitman: Absolution - 7,490
15. [3DS] Taiko no Tatsujin: Chibi Dragon to Fushigi na Orb - 7,450
16. [PSP] Digimon Adventure - 7,397
17. [3DS] Tousouchuu: Shijou Saikyou no Hunter-Tachi Kara Nigekire! - 7,288
18. [PSP] Renai 0 Kilometer Portable - 6,884
19. [WIU] New Super Mario Bros. U - 6,338
20. [PS3] Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Dubbed Edition - 6,166

Hardware numbers show that either the PSP has a ton of selling power, or the Wii-U is underperforming right now. The truth, as with anything, probably lies in some combination of the two. Here's the full hardware chart.
3DS - 77,682
PS3 - 18,106
Wii-U - 12,959
PSP - 12,191
PSV - 9,596
Wii - 1,904
360 - 870
Next week, expect continued high-positioning by Animal Crossing, but number one will almost certainly be the Dragon Quest VII remake for 3DS. It will stab everything in the eye.
