Makes me happy to see that japanese games are doing good in our countries:)

Not to burst your bubble, but all three of those titles sold like garbage in UK. This isn't an accomplishment... unless you consider <5k as an accomplishment and/or "good".

I consider all of it commically bad, and irrelevant.

I know it's not that great, but it's only u.k and if these games sells good around europe and america, it's good for future games too

I feel personally this isn't something I can applaud for, as it feels like it borrows a lot from Minecraft to the point where it is essentially MC with Dragon Quest characters in it. Using the success to of another game to sell your own is not something I can applaud, and I expected better of Square Enix.

Infiniminer, a game that came out before Minecraft.

This is how gaming progresses.

Sony's Japan president didn't lied when he told to Hori on TGS Stage 2014 ''welcome back home!'' Dragon Quest appeared on a Nintendo platform first like FF but it's heart and souls beats better on Playstation systems ;)

Yeah it's great having so much FF and Dragon quest on Playstation this gen.  The former was badly missed last gen for sure. 

To be fair, DQ found some success on the DS with IX being the best selling game of the franchise. The 3DS is also getting some great content from DQ, though unfortunately it doesn't translate to solid sales overseas. Hopefully VIII can do better.

This didn't stopped you comparing Builders and VII on amazon ranking some weeks ago on gaf's media create thread though. I remember that you said something along these lines ''speaking of DQ, Builders isn't doing well on Amazon, VII is ranking higher etc''. Now that the game opened higher despite all the damage control the comparison is commically bad and irrelevant?

okay...

If you have such selective memory, things will looks strange indeed. I was talking about the US market... you know, the one where 3DS software isn't completely dead? It also wasn't about "one doing well the other not doing well", it was about one doing worse than the other in a scenario where no doubt both did poorly.

My statement was factual (on Amazon) but speculative, your statement about it here... is irrelevant, much like these sales.

Wonder what excuse you will find when DQXI for PS4 will outsell the NX (or 3DS) version in US/EU. And no my statement is not irrelevant because you can't change your opinion on something based on different forums, preferences and mostly when something suits your preferable platform holder.

Uninformed posts like these should be a bannable offense by the mods, seriously. If you had even made the slightest effort to learn more about the game you'd know it's nothing like Minecraft. No it's essentials are nothing like MC. The core game is a rpg with main story and quests, the building elements feel like the classics like Suikoden and Dark Cloud. But here you are giving your 2 cents on something you know nothing about. What was the wise old adage? Don't judge a book by its cover.

Seriously worst post of the day.

Probably the same excuse you would use about the fact DQVIIR sold 1,3 million in Japan and the 3 versions of DQB only sold 600K. I wish Sony fans would stop with this childish behavior and realize this stupid war isn't hurting Nintendo or Sony, it's hurting the entire japanese industry. Japanese videogames are doing awful numbers on Sony systems this gen because for years you bashed Nintendo about "old gen looking games" not being worth the money. Well it backfired hard. The sad thing is you will probably do the same mistake about the NX. You'll never learn.
