PS3 Ni no Kuni Only Sells 40% Of Stock

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch moved just 40 percent of its retail stock in the game's first week of release in Japan (Namco Bandai will bring it to North America in early 2012), an indicator that it is not meeting developer and publisher Level-5's expectations.

For comparison, last week's top-selling game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for PS3, sold 180,000 units (and 30,000 on Xbox 360), or 75 percent its stock, which is usually as high as sell-through rates get before retailers start reporting that they've sold through their stock.

Despite selling less than half of its shipment, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was still the third best-selling game, behind Modern Warfare 3 and Namco Bandai's Nintendo DS game One Piece: Gigant Battle 2, in the previous week with more than 67,000 copies purchased.
