They should update a lot of Ds/Wii games as well. Where a re Phoenix Wright/Apollo Justice,.. Others numbers??? etc...

Anyway, these top 10 PS3/Xbox360 before the FFXIII show really bad sales for this year.

These Top 10 lists for PS3 and Xbox 360 are only for "The Best" titles, which is the same as "Greatest Hits" in the USA and "Platinum" in Europe. The overall Top 10 lists of 2009 for PS3 and Xbox 360 look way different and with way higher sales.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii... this game is huge.

Can't wait to see what numbers it'll put it this week WW! Oh, and all but confirms that the game has another million selling week, making it 4 weeks in a row. And seeing as it only needs 50k in Japan to get the 5th week too, I'm sensing that we're gonna see one heck of a record!

Well the game released later in Japan compared to the Americas/Europe, so these numbers will be week #4 for the game in Japan. (which should be +500k)

Yeah, that's what I meant, sorry. This week's Japanese #'s will be accounted for WW week #4 (guaranteed over a million) and next week's Japan #'s will be for WW week #5 (only needs 50K to achieve 1 million). Pretty neat I'd say.

Ah, yeah sorry I mis-understood what you wrote. Yeah, it's guaranteed +1million for week 4 and week 5 I'd say. I wonder how long it can hold up for? (+1million weeks)

I got my copy in Japan's week #4. Excellent game.

Vg chartz should update the numbers for VC and with america new numbers it will skyrocket to 800k

who cares about that silly game.


I CARE BECAUSE IT WILL OUTSELL LOST ODYSSEY THIS WEEK

just curious, that matters, why?


because i have a thread called Valkyria Chronicles vs Lost Odyssey with sales

yeah I'm kinda curious about that too, like, why? I mean I have VC and I love that game but it's SRPG so I don't even know how it can be compared to Lost Odyssey. Just kinda confused and need some explaination.

Strategy rpgs can be  japanese role play games(JRPG) as  action rpg are as all rpg can be jrpgsJRPG means japanese rpg and SRPG means strategy rpg they are both rpgs from japan by jp developers and they are in one category srpg is in jrpg

That's like saying WRPGs are RPGs just as JRPGs are RPGs even though they have different style and game play so they should just all fit in one category of RPGs and we should be then comparing Mass Effect to Valkyria Chronicles too. Point is Lost Odyssey and VC are very different games no matter who made them or where they came out from. I'm happy that VC is still selling personally, just don't exactly see the connections is all I'm getting at.

1. mass effect is made by american developers 2. you can 't understand that SRPG can be JRPG but WRPG can 't be JRPG 3.  you have confused the definition in your mind of JRPGS then FFTactics is not a jrpg or any other rpg from japan that involes strategy and what thee gameplay has to do with when a jrpg is from japan or not if you can 't except innovative jrpgs stay with the old style

Actually I seem to recall reading that VC in the US are (or were?) largely overtracked when compared to NPD numbers.


wait for the annual update of NPD


NPD had it at 130k LTD last time...I don't see the game changing much when it comes to NPD. I really think the game is largely overtracked here...

lol at Tomadatchi.

How about this... NPD are undertracking it. But no, that's never a possiblity is it!? ¬_¬

OT: NSMB is pretty damn awesome. Tomodatchi is god. FF sees some good numbers for 2nd week.

I'm happy that VC is still selling personally, just don't exactly see the connections is all I'm getting at.

I'll tell you what the connection is. The Xbox 360 got a lot of (exclusive) JRPG's in the past years, way  more than PS3 did. A lot of gamers, specially PS3-gamers, were sad by this because they were waiting for JRPG's to release on the PS3, while the Xbox 360 got plenty. Looking at past generations the PS1 and PS2 was the console to buy if you were looking for JRPG's. So when all these JRPG's came to the Xbox 360 instead of the PS3, it became clear that those games didn't sell that much on the Xbox 360. The result is that PS3-gamers are shouting that the Xbox 360 is not the best platform to release a JRPG on and that a better choice would be the PS3.

So, when Valkyria Chronicles, a Strategy JRPG, is selling more than Lost Odyssey, a normal JRPG, which normally sell better than niche Strategy JRPG's, than that's proving the point of PS3 owners that the PS3 is the better platform to release a JRPG on. That's a connection. Maybe not THE connection, but it's a connection. Personally, i don't care which game sells more, but it's clear that PS3-owners love JRPG's more than Xbox 360-owners do.

See, that's the thing, you are not really comparing games, you are comparing regions of games instead of actual category of games and is therefore generalizing them as my yellow bold in a smaller scale, when they are very different types of RPGs. It doesn't go both ways dood.

JRPGS are not necessery FFX/VII turn-based games take thet belief out of your  mind and you can compare an rpg to an rpg

I still find it hard to compare since VC is more of a game with good legs aka Wii type rather than 360 burst sales in general so companies still won't realize that fact because analysts working in corp environments are usually(not all, just most) retarded fucks, but right now imo PS3 is much better for JRPGs since well, they are more completed apparently, as Namco would say haha.
