Miku's first week of release March 29, 2014 was about 169,000. That is actually a VERY good start... to read the charts you need to see the number of weeks it has been released for. .... also for all of you... feel free and read the reply to the reply down below where it says "(Show replies (1)" to see the full details what many have been talking about. You'll see......Thanks Miku for helping all of us stay young forever.

Disappointing Miku sales :(


Analyst247 (on 14 April 2014)

WRONG leyandax69 HAHAHAHAHA your analysis was funny...... Miku's 1st week of release was about 169,000. Thats a VERY damn good start. If you ACTUALLY READ THE CHARTS, there are games out there on their 70th week and they only have 300,000.
So YOU my friend know nothing about the timing rhythm and the *class that Hatsune Miku ws classified in...especially for older gamers who lose their timing and rhythm due to old age. There are games that helps resharpen older gamers skills, and if you have ever played any Hatsune Miku games, you should know exactly what im talking about, but you are still young, don't worry, the timing will hit you soon enough. I can guarantee you can not perfect any of her songs and then do the exact same the next month.
