i have two questions

1.did NPD track sport champions(move bundle version)?

2.will NPD track Kinect adventures?

They don't track bundled SW full stop, this even includes Halo and NSMB bundles.

Well it varies.  They don't count software bundled with hardware, at least with the software totals.  They also don't count software bundled with peripherals, though it depends how it's counted... for example Wii Play and Wii Fit were counted as software while Link's Crossbow Training was counted as a peripheral.  Move and Kinect are counted as peripherals, so we won't be seeing Kinect Adventures on it's own and we won't be seeing the Move bundles figures added to Sports Champions' total.

100k > Bayonetta 360 > Madworld > 50k > Bayonetta PS3 > Vanquish PS360

Platinum really is the new Clover. ;)

At least Clover made Okami which will be remembered for years as masterpiece while everything Platinum did was average at most.

You forgot to put "IMO", because it is just your opinion. Just because you really like Clover (I like them, too) don't put down another company. Bayonetta is an excellent game and I had a blast playing through it. Not just me either as it had an average review score of 90 (360 version), so others think it's more than an "average" game.

OT: How is Vanquish? Now that I've played through Bayonetta I was thinking about checking out Platinum's other games.

PS3 does seem to do better on the less popular titles these days.



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

they should have made those games (enslaved and Lord of Shadows) exclusives...would have helped heaps imo

So does this mean Japanese games sells a lot on the PS3? I expected PS's version of Naruto to outsold the 360 because the first one was exlusive but the other one especially Vanquish woah! although Vanquish sales are lackluster.

Castlevania PS3 was said to be the better version at least.  It also led the marketing I saw on TV (Sony funded maybe?).
