People really overrate how well RPGs sell on the DS outside of the big franchises.
The Wii's Tales spinoff, DotNW, did ~160k on its first week. That's higher than any non-SE/Pokemon RPG on the DS could manage.
People seem to prefer their RPG's on consoles (I guess the PSP is closer to one than the DS).
Can't see this.
DS: 14,87M (78 RPG titles) - FF, DQ, Pokemon not included - average RPG title ~0,19M.
PSP: 6,86M (39 RPG titles) - FF, MH not included - average RPG title ~0,17M.
+PS2 (just for comparison, but data largely incomplete): 18,85M (80 RPG titles) - FF, DQ, KH not included, MH included - average RPG title ~0,23M.
I guess niche games sell almost equally on any viable platform, that's why they're "niche". Lead platform just get them more. Some of you, guys, just trying to make some conlusions out of isolated cases and pretend that you don't see the bigger picture.
