I'm glad japan is loving it on both systems. IW deserves it for making such a great game.

The most suprising thing on the list is Lost Odyssey for the Xbox 360. It doesn't even make the top 5 in Japan. The game gets outsold by COD4, Dead Rising, and Gears of War This is a flop and Microsoft once again fails to create demand for the 360 in Japan and they wasted their money on a game that should also becoming to the PS3 but it isn't because Microsoft secured it exclusive.

What's surprising is the fact that most of the big titles are not doing as good as I though. Halo 3 in fourth position in the US (but in third in EU!). Mario Galaxy not doing that good in any country.

It's also interesting to see that the choices are really different from one country to the next.

Still COD4 is doing really good. And Assassin is not doing so bad either. 2007 was a great year for sure.

Glad to see Uncharted and Ratchet selling fairly well. Also good to see Zack and Wiki on Wii is at least selling ok in Europe.

Kyur4ThePain3445d ago

Seeing Uncharted in 2nd in the US and Japan was a pleasant surprise.

Shin Sangoku Musou 5 and Wii Fit - I can't wait for those ^^

Yeah I'm surprised Uncharted didn't Chart in europe (No pun intended! ;) ) Seeing how a majority of the 800 K or so sales uncharted has made worldwide almost half has come from europe if not more.
