    Lingyis said:culture-wise, the japanese are closer to video games as opposed to americans.Do you mean simply that most of the biggest names in gaming -- Nintendo, Sony, Square-Enix, Capcom, Konami, etc. -- are Japanese themselves?  Because I don't think there's much other evidence.  We're almost as technophiliac as they are, and video games themselves are very...

    Super Mario Galaxy vs. Halo 3 - Which game will sell more units overall?

    in Sales Discussion on 15 July 2007

    It occurred to me that we may be talking at cross purposes.  Although I think that ckmlb's number estimates are far too low, what I was actually objecting to was his distribution of numbers -- that is, not how many were sold in Japan or America but how many were sold in Japan versus America.  Just wanted to make sure that was clear.  ...

    NTDOY analyst article with interesting historical data

    in Sales Discussion on 15 July 2007

    The article is at http://ce.seekingalpha.com/article/40770.  This article has a lot of interesting history, and a LOT of numbers, but as soon as the author strays from reporting history into making the most basic value judgements, it falls apart.  Many of the conclusions drawn are, frankly, ridiculous.  The only saving grace this guy has is that when he seems to have a much...

    Australia Vs. Canada

    in General Discussion on 14 July 2007

    I live in Minnesota (on the left end of the Great Lakes and southern border of Canada in the middle of the continent for those who don't know), so I think Canada would be pretty homey -- less people, more health care, and a Frenchy province, but close enough. Actually, we've been warmer than usual with little snow these past few years, so Canada might have a more homelike climate than home for...

    Erik Aston said: Don't overestimate the popularity of Mario in Japan. NSMB's crazy sales have to do with the 2D gameplay, not the mascot. The open world 3D gameplay has never taken off in Japan like it has in the west.I'd expect about 3 million for Galaxy in Japan; NSMB is on its way to 6 million.  I don't think I am overestimating Mario in Japan.  Look at Mario...

    Erik Aston said:...I think Galaxy will do at least as well as SM64 (12 million), though not as well as NSMB (should do 14-15+ million). Why on earth not?  NSMB is facing at least as much competition as SMG will be in the long run.  Now, the short term is a different story.  SMG is launching at a time that consumers' pocketbooks will still be recovering from MP3, and bracing for...
