Media Create has released an expanded listing of the best-selling games from Japan.
The Media Create software sales are looking quite spectacular for the week of 9//10-9/16 with Nintendo software controlling 7 of 10 spots in the top 10. Quite positive while keeping the industry healthy as a whole. Things are already looking amazing even before the launch of the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system. Which I hope to see soon land its very own amount of software placements on the top charts. It has been documented that the Nintendo product line controls over %70 of the Japanese industry sales. Lets hope that can and will turn into a whopping %80 before the end of the year. Rated E For Everyone
Your enthusiasm is commendable tho i disagree with your philosophy.. Entertaining i must say.. But Japan is but a small spec on the world map & 3rd party software does not dominate in other territories on Nintendo platforms.. !st party is far stronger.. That will hurt us if 3rd party cant sell.. They will cease to exist outside of japan if things dont pick up... I own 3DS & got fair amount of entertainment however things look very dry from 3rd party out here in the US.. Castlevania & Code of Princess are the only games i see worth looking at from now until march.. Not good, just sayin.. Rated M For Mature
As much as I enjoy your posts as well. They are entertaining, even if usually in a negative toward the Nintendo umbrella. The Nintendo product line is doing just fine outside of Japan. 1st and 3rd party. Especially 1st party. This is one of those situation where you should worry about the well being of your own brand of choice instead of the industry leading Nintendo brand. Just because you only find 2 3rd party exclusives appealing does not mean everyone else feels the same. And when it comes down to handhelds it is safe to say Nintendo will do just fine in that department as well. The Nintendo 3DS entertainment system is shattering previous handheld records. It only takes a short skim through worldwide charts to see that there are other struggling handhelds doing far worse than what Nintendo has accomplished. Nintendo games may it be 1st or 3rd party actually have lifespan within the top 10 charts. So if you believe the Nintendo product line is not selling up to standards, I am scared to even imagine for a second the horrific nightmare of what you think of others as far as sales go.

You're right, but I seem to remember when Japanese sales were important to n4g users. Strangely when ps3 was number 1 for an extended period of time. Wonder why that was.
I own wii & 3DS XL, & every console nintendo has released.. I am worried about the well being of my brands.. 1st party games on nintendo arent of any concern to me as i know they will always be there.. 3rd party however is another story.. U cant tell me the whole world wants finding nemo & all that other casual mess out there cuz none of it is topping the charts.. All that tops the charts in the west on nintendo platforms is Nintendo games.. if a 3rd party game rises like KHDDD, it falls rapidly.. Just like Sony titles however sony sells the hell out of 3rd party games on their systems.. Vita hasnt began to take flight yet but rest assured, it will.. Especially with the lack of new IPs coming from the competition.. I dont see any wii games on any charts at all.. Just DS,3DS, PSP, Vita, PS3.. Sony has 3 systems thats moving software.. Companies wont build games for a system they cant sell on & if they do, itl be a 1/2 a$$3d job.. Just like 90% of whats available from 3rd party on em.. I worry about the industry as a whole (minus MS) & from what things look like, all that will ever come from the big N is another wave of the same IPs.. Selling well, but little new to see... Japan gets much better software than westerners Rated T For Teen
That is a respectable response. As far as the Nintendo Wii entertainment system goes, you likely will never see any games on that platform on the top anywhere ever again. We are in the eye of release of the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system. Not many will be rushing out to get games for a last generation console when the next generation of that respective brand begins in about 2 months time. As far as Kingdom hearts DDD goes. It did take a crack at the top 10 charts, and is not deemed to failure. Handhelds have a different standard to survival and failure due to the lack of needed resources to produce those titles. The Nintendo 3DS is effectively a PS2 when it comes to graphical capability and I can imagine it is not too difficult to break even on one of those offerings. Especially with the standard and resources needed to create games on HD consoles, and HD high spec handhelds in the industry today. Titles on Sonys respective handheld are likely higher in production cost due to the tech found inside. Which results in those devs needing to sell many more copies of their title than a Nintendo 3DS entertainment system offering. As far as Nintendo IPs go. Nintendo has many new IPs under the Nintendo umbrella each generation. Whether you choose to pay attention to them or not is your own doing. Nintendos most popular in house exclusive brands obviously sell the most. They are critically acclaimed and have been around for many many moons. Those said titles are also some of the highest rated, most respected exclusive offerings in the industry. So yes, they do get a leg up on the competition, even 3rd party titles. And just as any other Corporate brand in gaming. You will continue to see the successful IPs return again and again. That is just business. People cry and get emotional when the successful ones do not return. Ask any Half Life fan. I have been crying in a corner over the lack of Starfox for years now. Creating too many new IPs that the people are not willing to purchase brings about financial loss, and the closing of studios. If we are talking about Sony software now then fine. Sony has 2 platforms moving software, the PSP and the PS3. I would like a link to see what that 3rd platform is at the time as far as moving software goes. The Vita has not taken flight excuse if you may call it does not fly with me. It has been out long enough to garner a respectable install base. Nobody else is to blame for that but the in house corporation that priced the unit as much as a home console. Rated E For Everyone
'Titles on Sonys respective handheld are likely higher in production cost due to the tech found inside.

Hmm, I seem to recall Nintendo going on and on about how cheap it is to develop for the Wii. When it came down to it, only tried and tested Nintendo IPs sold on the console, leaving a legion of shovelware devs pumping out garbage that never sold.
Wall of texts. So long.
It's actually kind of rare to see two opposing viewpoints on these subjects that are both actually correct...more or less. And Kaos is always good fun.
Thank you for your support. I hope to see many more people with less hate and more debate in the future.
True, also if Divine Assault had more bubbles, it couldve been a longer wall.
Debate is always fun if done properly, especially since I love to argue.:)
Before i thought that koas was an ass , but now after reading some of his comments i have much respect for this guy. He does not start flamewars and talks with respect over other game companies.
That is appreciated. There is no need to be negative toward any surviving videogame corporation.
Beyond Kaos , Beyond! Hail Nintendo! For their great first party exclusives ( Pre ordered the wii U zombie U bundle) and Hail sony for giving me the Ps1/Ps2/ps3 and vita ( sorry bro) Ninty please give me a sequel on N64 Mario 64:(?
I kinda wish Accel World was coming over. But I'll settle for Hatsune Miku.
