Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS3 Software Title Breaks Record in Japan!

So what are your thoughts on this development?

Never heard of the franchise, don't care
I care
I care, but not enough to vote in a poll...oh wait
My pen ran out
I love percents!!!
You get more per-dollar!

Grannies cooking is overdone
Halo is a pretty cool guy
A letter just arrived in the mail

I was worried about this title for about 7 weeks and didn't think anyone would get to buying it but finally, after 8 weeks of being on the market, Drakengard gets a sale. Not only did it get a sale but it rose 111,254% (which has to be a record) from the previous seven weeks combined and claimed the sixth spot on the Japanese charts. Check it out below.

For the people who don't understand. If you look at the Japan chartz you will find that Drakengard was released 8 weeks ago right? This week it sold 111,254 copies for a grand total of 111,254 copies sold overall meaning it sold 0 copies for seven straight weeks! What are the chances that this game goes this crazy this fast??/?//? It has to be a record for the biggest percentage gain in the history of history!

Congratulations.

That's nothing, VGChartz shows why the VITA version of Rayman Legends hasn't been a big seller....

It's not due to be released for another 6 years! XD
