The problem is, there are lots of PS3 supporters that are under the notion that JRPG's would sell much better on their console (due to all the JRPG fans from the PS2 moving up) as opposed to the 360. This has yet to be proven, so when games like Valkyria Chronicles or Eternal Sonata do poorly, it's the reason people like mrstickball come in here and flaunt that fact.

I think things point to the 360 userbase having a bigger JRPG userbase in the west. The PS3 offsets this with their advantage in Japan, so it comes out almost equal (slightly PS3 favored). The Wii should prove to have the most, but that's a different matter.


@mibuokami: Aye, the 360 is definitely a good buy - it has the best current RPG lineup, and there are surely a few more to come. If Nintendo games don't interest you at all (impossible!?) but JRPG's are your thing, I'll bet by the end of 09 you'll be forced to take a bite. The great thing is, with DQX (even if you're not a fan), the future is looking good for the console.

That would explain why it is so hard to tell which system has more JRPG fans.

VC was never expected to sell very well anyway so no suprise there. SRPGs are very niche. The last SRPG to sell 1 million copies was release over 10 years ago.

 

 

The game was exremly difficult to find launch week. I suspect that 33k units is better then what sega expected for this game.

Screw Sega for putting it on the Xbox, that was the one system I didn't own last gen -_-

Jet Grind Radio was THE game for cel shading, it's the first one I played, actually... looking at Wiki now,

"The first 3D video game to feature true real-time cel-shading was Jet Grind Radio (2000) for the Sega Dreamcast." Awesome, I get bragging rights now
