Here’s How Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century Did Upon Release

Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century sold nearly the same amount of copies in its first week as Suikoden Tierkreis did in 2008. Here’s a comparison of first-week sales numbers for the two games:

 

Suikoden Tierkreis – 67,588

Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century – 61,784

 

The primary difference here is that while Tierkreis sold only 45.67% of its shipment in its first week, The Woven Web of a Century sold 75.09%. This means that Konami — or retailers, who accept a certain amount of copies based on estimated demand — learnt something from Tierkreis and decided to have less copies shipped this time around.

 

Media-Create say that the majority of purchase intent for Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century came about as a result of visiting the developer’s website. This isn’t much of a surprise, but it means that it was bought primarily by series fans who actively went looking for information on the game.

 

Meanwhile, Gravity Rush had a pretty good opening week. That game sold through 73.31% of its shipment in its first week, but unfortunately, it didn’t do much to help declining Vita hardware sales.
