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

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

 

stop agreeing with me already =P I might have confused you lol, that wasn't my intention.

Inazuma has good legs and is going to be a million seller (even more than the other Level5 game Layton 4), which is a big surprise. The first one sold 350k I think.
Congrats to Level5. Please translate this game to us.

Congratulations, you will be a happy panda now:

Inazuma Eleven game and anime heading to Europe, intentions of bringing Atamania series out as well

01. Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation - 86,534 (128,414)
02. Beautiful Katamari - 74,166 (115,658)

Edit: NVM, thats just how much it sold in 09, the bundle was started in 08 afterall.

if zelda did the usual 300-400k opening in japan, then NSMB numbers are definitely very impressive. FF13 numbers are definitely above 150k, and i gess its at about 200-250k. Healthy numbers. Taiko probably did around 70k which is impressive, and yeah its noo longer a failure and sure to get to the 400-500k level which is what taiko games usually get.

Now i really want to know abt hardware and the rest of software

I think it would be an awesome accomplishment for Taiko 2 to hit 300K in Japan after such a bad start (about half of the first one). 400-500K would be aiming really high.



MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.

Around the Network

is it just me or is MGS4 undertracked by VGC according to these Famitsu figures?



Zelda launch in Japan bigger than in the USA and Europe. Who saw this coming?



 

Now that we see the top 10 order... we need some hardware numbers. I must see how beastly Ninty hardware is.

I'm pretty sure that all of these sales are for the "best hits/platinum collection" sales only. In other words the bargain price sales. AC6 and Beatiful Katamari were released as platinum collection versions in Nov. 08 which is why they have those sales in parentheses. (Those should also include the bundle pack-in sales as well, I'm guessing)




starcraft: "I and every PS3 fanboy alive are waiting for Versus more than FFXIII.
Me since the games were revealed, the fanboys since E3."

Skeeuk: "playstation 3 is the ultimate in gaming acceleration"

TheSource says Tomodachi Collection sold about 350K so FFXIII might be around 300K, thats awesome for a second week FF game.
