So vesperia PS3 has already sold 360k+? That's nice for a year old port and with a "the best" release it can maybe match Symphonia's PS2 400k sales.

Could a exclusive Tales of for the PS3 sell 500k+? I think so...

Metal Gear Solid is still up there, this game will sell well for as long as the PS3 is around!

yup.. but no MGS4 the Best is released.. so MGS4 original numbers are going to stay at 700k.. but i think The best may do over 150 - 200k.. So overall MGS is going to sell like 900k.. which is i think quite high for the series, maybe the highest.

Uhh, a 'The Best' for MGS4 was released several weeks ago.



Lol, Square Enix published MW2 in Japan?



Man, DS is such a beast but I guess everyone already knows that. Same with Monster Hunter, god damn.

It was released last fall, just before the slim release.

Vesperia PS3 really benefitted from perfect timing, coming out just in time to ride the rocketing slimomentum.  Had it released 2-3 months or earlier, or 2-3 months later, it probably would've moved dramatically less.  I also think a solid case can be made for "double dipping" based off additional content and game quality driven by word of mouth.  I don't think those 210k 360 purchases would've been added on top had the game been exclusive to PS3 (most Tales fans bought both already), and indeed I think Star Ocean 4 shows more what you can expect when the 360 audience doesn't double dip.

Also, Symphonia PS2 sold 440k when you add in it's own BEST release.  Add in the GC version and it's 750k.

I was going to say several months ago (I thought it was in January, but I wasn't going to bother searching for the release date). Thanks for that.

You're probably thinking of Ryu Ga Gotuku 3. I believe the best version for that came out right around the new year.
