In Japan, there are many critical comments for GUNDAM MUSOU. One of representative examples is very simple. "The quality of GUNDAM MUSOU is equal to or less than the one of games for PS2. So, it should be released for PS2." I think the influece of GUNDAM MUSOU to the nextgen console war is quite small in Japan because of the general indifference to game console in Japan. The success of DS and Wii are based on the fact they are getting intense interest of people, but PS3 can't do. Indeed, Wii and DS are sold-out in a few day, but it is infrequent PS3 is sold-out in the shop.
