Very good for DBZ: BL on PS3! I am very surprised it did so well.

Not so good for either 360 game..Japan must *really* not care about the 360 anymore...Unless NG2 will have some sort of good legs (did MS market NG2??). NGSigma sold 23k first day. Eternal Sonata (which was released in a similar time frame) was about 35k first day.  

Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

Well, NG2 sold only 3,000 less first day than Sigma (it's a remake, but most in Japan wouldn't have played the original), on a much smaller userbase, in a genre that the country doesn't take well to. So, well I wouldn't call it a victory, it's at least not as bad as it may have been.

Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Maybe PS3/360 will have small hardware bump. Ninja Gaiden II numbers are ok it is what I thought.

I don't think that genre is too popular in Japan, but decent figures

Not bad for WII Fushigi no Dungeon can be over 60.000 first week.

Around the Network
Shiren the Wanderer is doing quite well actually. Could be around 65.000 first week. Definitely not bad.

Too bad for Ninja Gaiden, Dragon Ball PS3 pretty good. Does anyone know what DBZ games did on PS2?

Exactly when did Japan care for the X360?

It all started on Neveruary 32nd! 

Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.


WOW I'm highly impressed by DBZ PS3 and Furai no Shiren sales, especially Siren, never expected it would sell so much on the WII, I'm really surprised Hopefully it will hit the US and it will get good scores then I'm sure I will get it...

PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E
