robjoh said: kber81 said: fabinou said: So Gundam Musou will not be the killer-app that I was scared of ? Then PS3 is in trouble... (yes, yes, yes !! ) (sorry for my english..) Indeed, it looks like a huge failure. Software around 100k is ok - userbase is pretty thin so it is still 1 of 7 PS3 owners... but no hardware boost... situation of Sony in Japan is getting worse and worse. I can understand VF5 because it's fighting game but this one is a GUNDAM game. I counted for boost around 100k PS3. Producers may start to worry because of huge budget of PS3 games. Not good. fabinou said: "mmmmhhhh robjoh, I loooooooove when you say something like this.... mhhhhh" This must be an orgasm of Nintendo-onanist. I've been talking about this some time ago. Heck even I get affraid when somebody post like that. Yes 100k is more than ok, I think it is great sales. The only thing is that many said first wait for VF5 then wait for Gundam and wait for ????
Your question often comes up between Japanese game fun. And most of them gives an evasive answer... Additioal, the first shipment of Gundam Musou is about 170~180k. And probably, the second shipment is next Monday. So the maximum sales in this week is about 170~180k.

shams said: Umm, 100k on day#1 is pretty excellent - close to 200k for the week (or maybe 150k - triple what VF5 did). No great surprise, about expectations. PS3 hardware will boost - but not past Wii (and new Wii titles are coming as well). Maybe 40k-50k for the week. Still positive news - what is really important is how much it sells next week: 50k+ = good/excellent 30k = expected 10k-20k = poor less than 10k (won't happen) terrible
This was a great post.

Well everybody was saying that MHP2 was selling a lot but not moving hardware last week ...it has moved so little hardware that it has managed to multiply by 3 the number of hardware sold for the week .I am not saying it wil happen the same with Gundam Mussou ,but simply reminding you you always tend to be too pesimistic towards Sony and are too eager to believe each and every news-rumors-predictions that put them in bad shape .Just wait ,and in one week we can talk with some sense .

It seems reasonable ,i would say more or less the same ...maybe a bit less for the Wii .Something along 150K for the game ,50K for the PS3 and 70-75K for the Wii ..



fabinou, your predictions are always wrong.

Sure but I according to Y-koron, PS3 didn't see the significant boost as PSP had last week all according to the blog he showed. Of course this can change. Which was the reason why I asked if the number included the bundles.

Yes. These data is my hearsay knowledge, however the site used for source is one of the reliable site about the sales. And I will go a few shop and observe the sales of Gumdam Musou and some softs. Of cource PS3 also. I don't know the number includes the bundles...(probably including, I think) And as far as I heard, the bundle is unpopular because of the price. Its price is more expensive than the total price of PS3 and Gumdam Musou.
