Are those the final hardware numbers?

I've got the Japanese first version and I would buy this game only for the chain of memories disc as that game is of course a completely update to the PS2 with Japanese voice actings. Perhaps I will buy the limited version as it's available at Play Asia, but not for the main game. Can't stand it that they've put the English voice actings in the main game.  Mushu and even Donald and Goofy rock in Japanese!

 Yatta, yatta, katta, katta, kachimashita, kachimashita, yeah, mulan saikou, mulan saikou, oretachi mo saikou, demo yappari Mushu saiko!

Koron probably knows what the heck I'm saying

Wii supplies dipped again it seems.



Hope so or else the demand is getting lower in Japan. We will see more figures tomorrow here and on Friday on Media Create.

Y-Koron is the WII normal available in Japan, or is it like one minute a palette comes in and the next moment all the consoles are gone, sold that is.

DSL : about 80k

As far as I see, the shortage of Wii has not resolved yet. Indeed,  the demand for Wii is in slowdown at a sluggish pace.  But, It is because the lack of killer game. The good sales of Wii is based on the popularity among the people haven't been interented in the games. They tend to like "Nintendo" game and want only "Nintendo" game. And now, Nintendo can't supply such games for them... (Of cource Wii sports and Wii Play are exceptions)

Conversely, The sales of Wii has probability to drasticaly increased when Nintendo release killer games.



Please ask me if you have some questions about Japanese market and Gaming!

 In japan, PS3 is in the dark.

 Obviously, the expensive prise drags on the sales. What is worse is that the complex architecture of Cell becomes a pain in the neck for developers, and it leads to the rising cost of development. So small companies can't release the game for PS3 and big campanies think multi-platform like DMC4.

 And it is clear the advertisement in Japan is failure. TV CM of PS3 isn't understandable about the advantages of PS3. Otherwise, TV CM of Wii is well recieved. The reason is simple. Nintendo highlights the scene enjoying Wii. This method is also used for games. And this method is very effective to make people think the game is interesting.  This differece is appeared in sales...

 Finally, in Japan, many game funs think "Sony killed PS3 by themselves."

Sony will be alright, they just need some good games really quick, cause all of the so-called "Killer-apps" so far have not been to great, at least not great enough to boost sales like it needs to.

The unfortunate thing for Sony in Japan right now is that there is very little reason why the PS3 will pass the 20k barrier for a little while; from what I can find the PS3 has almost no games to be released for a couple of months. The embarassing thing is it looks like the PS3 is a good 10 weeks away from selling 1 Million units in Japan, if that happens the Wii could have sold 2.5 to 3 Million units by the time the PS3 sells 1 Million unit.

That is something I have tried to point out more then once. Sony has one game a month announced for the comoning three months in Japan. During that time Nintendo should be able to reach 2.5-3 millions.

 

How much can FF take back?
