Zelda launch in Japan bigger than in the USA and Europe. Who saw this coming?

How do you know?

America's launch: 190,689

Others' launch: 189,936

 

You expect less than that?

ioi has already commented on it and I may have to bookmark the post just for reposting purposes if people keep bringing it up.

Lemme guess, on Valkyria sales and a bunch of peoples crusade to get it adjusted down?

Don't be so paranoid. 

I always trust NPD's data more because they are a leading market research company and the big 3 actually use their data. This trust applies to all hardware and games. However, some fanboys do not seem to possess this kind of consistency in their thinking. For example, when PS3's sales  is higher from NDP, they would scream for ioi to adjust the number up, but when NPD claims that VC sales is lower, the same people would say NPD undertracks the game ...

You just described fanboy logic.

Same thing with Media Create vs. Famitsu numbers, they will pick whichever one makes their system of choice look better.

 

Back on topic, wow @ NSMB, can't believe the sales!



I want numbers, those other numbers a guy posted aren't solid....

2008/12/29 ~ 2009/12/13

2009 PlayStation3 the Best Top 10

01. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - 88,573
02. Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds - 88,346 (96,967)
03. Valkyria Chronicles - 81,625
04. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - 59,092
05. Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan! - 55,226 (65,236)
06. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - 39,679
07. Grand Theft Auto IV - 33,202
08. Devil May Cry 4 - 23,770
09. Mahjong Fight Club: Zengoku Taisen Ban - 20,656
10. Samurai Dou 3 Plus - 20,593

- Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Konami) --- 706,461 + 59,092 = 765,553
- Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds (SCE) --- 410,052 + 96,967 = 507,019
- Yakuza: Kenzan! (Sega) --- 270,438 + 65,236 = 335,674
- Valkyria Chronicles (Sega) --- 141,589 + 81,625 = 223,214

2009 Xbox360 Platinum Collection Top 10

01. Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation - 86,534 (128,414)
02. Beautiful Katamari - 74,166 (115,658)
03. Halo 3 - 25,508
04. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - 24,567
05. Left 4 Dead - 12,988
06. Armored Core for Answer - 10,974
07. Idolmaster Twins - 6,621
08. Devil May Cry 4 - 6,360
09. Grand Theft Auto IV - 6,210
10. Fable II - 6,151

Other interesting ltds...

- Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (Namco) --- 95,002 + 128,414 = 223,416

- Beautiful Katamari (Namco) --- 24,949 + 115,658 = 140,607

- Halo 3 (MGS) --- 83,696 + 25,508 = 116,204

- Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (SCE) --- 38,242 + 39,679 = 77,921

 

AC6, Katamari, COD4 and Valkyria all got amazing gains off their BEST/Platinum releases.  Kenzan and Mingol 5 are both actually fairly disappointing though imo, as both series tended to do dramatically better with their previous BEST releases on PS2/PSP (in some cases even doubling ltds).  Everything else did okay, except Samurai Dou 3 (which even had significant extra content added).



Hard drop for FF XIII, but it was expected. 2 million LTD, maybe a bit more.



this is ridiculous, almost 6 hours, if they're gonna post post it all or don't post anything

I'm expecting in the future a Taiko no Tatsujin PS3 with downloadable songs!

Doubtful.  The PSP games didn't sell well (neither broke 100k iirc) and the last peripheral based PS3 game from Namco (Time Crisis 4) bombed hard.  Taiko's new home is DS/Wii, I don't see that changing.  They'll probably do a Wii game with DLC in the future though.

One Namco series I do see migrating to PS3 in the future is The Idolm@ster.  Seems like a perfect fit really, would probably do 200k+.
