thanks again. So it looks like Chrono Trigger is not even nearly as popular in Japan as Dragon Quest.

And The Last Remnant .. great figures, the best opening week for X360 game in Japan confirmed?

 

It will easily beat Tales' 106k. I expect 110-125k first week. And 30k+ for 360 hardware, it can even beat the PS3 for a week or two or seven xD

Edit: If we include bundles, it could even do 140k+ :o :o

 

 No maybe for this week but i doubt it because next week the Pro Evolution bundle and the game is comming, remeber that game is the most preordered HD game in Japan.

 

It was a joke >_> (except the one week bit).



Bet - "PES 2009 (PS3) will sell (closer to) 150k first week in Japan" - Pooperscopper
"It will sell closer to 125k" - Me I agree.
ME = OWNED :(

End of '09 Predictions:

Wii: 78 million
X360: 35 million
PS3: 27 million

My notes about the sales:

  • [NDS] Chrono Trigger (Square Enix) - 176k (46%) - Not as impressive as I thought it'd be. Nowhere near the other SE remakes as of late. Should hit ~250k for first week..That'd make it Square's worst-selling SNES remake. Very suprised considering how sacred CT is in the West.
  • [PSP] Kidou Senshi Gundam: Gundam vs. Gundam (Bandai Namco) - 150k (60%) - Very good. Should hit at least 225k first week, and could even hit 250-260k between both this, and the premium version(s). That's well above SD Gundam G's opening at 150k. Could hit 500,000 by the time it's done selling.
  • [WII] Animal Crossing: City Folk (Nintendo) - 117k (23%) - Initially unimpressed...Until I saw there was another version that didn't get included here. Pretty good first day numbers. Should hit 400k or more before the week is out. My main question is: Why did retailers order so many copies? Could it bomb in their eyes? Retailers ordered 750,000 copies between both versions, which is an insane number of games. Should easily be #1 this week, and become Nintendo's next million seller in Japan.
  • [360] The Last Remnant (Square Enix) - 79k (61%) [excludes HW bundle] - Very good. 80k is what Tales of Vesperia debuted with......Including bundles. Adding in bundles, of which MS most likely made more of, looks like TLR may have sold 95-105k on it's first day. I was hoping for 160,000 it's debut week, but it looks like TLR will do anywhere from 120,000-140,000. Very good for a X360 game, and obviously the best debut ever. Interestingly enough, TLR had the best sellthrough of any game.

And for the record, The Last Remnant is very likely to push X360 hardware between 25,000-35,000. That is, unless Microsoft has made more bundles than we thought. If I was MS, I would of made 50,000 bundles. Unfortunately, it may only have 15-25k.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

last remnant did ell on opening, i think 360 hardware sales will be higher than ps3 hardware in japan this week



...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on VGchartz...

Playstation Fan for life... PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - Steam/Uplay/Origin: Skeeuk

Great first day all around

@mrstickball: I think retailers don't want to be out of stock in this period of the year, that's why they're probably overstocked on a game that will probably have continued high sales for the rest of the year.



It´s going to be an exiting race for the top spot next week, that´s for sure.
Chrono Trigger at 176k
Animal Crossing at 175k and
Gundam at 160k

Looks like a three way race to me, any of them could end up at the topspot, I wonder who will prevail? No matter what, all of the three will have a great week and The Last Remnant also did great for a 360 game.



I also wonder, is it safe to say that the top three will reach 300k first week? What do you think guys?

Animal Crossing definitely. It's less of a "day 1" game than the other two. I expect AC to win the week.
The other two will be much more frontloaded, but should pass the 300k as well.

Sounds good to me.
