So happy to see Ni No Kuni doing so well :D
Ezz2013  +   920d ago
look at the pre orders for god of war ascension too

It will be a great success if NiNoKuni dose over 1 million in the west, that is enough to prove a good core JRPG has a market.

Why is Ni No Kuni on the article picture when Bioshock is number 1?
Blastoise  +   920d ago
Because it's impressive to see a game like Ni No Kuni in the charts.

We all knew Bioshock & GTA V were gonna be huge sellers, but these days a new IP JRPG could have easily bombed

It could also be because it a great game and that it came out the week of these preorder charts.

I hope aliens sells well on the ps3

no.8 - 129,686 people determined not to get the definitive wiiu version with authentic Aliens Motion tracker.
BanBrother  +   920d ago
Yes, but you'd be lucky to find a MP game for the Wii U. That is a big selling point when a game releases on the PS3, 360 and Wii U. At least the population will be strong on the two 'main' consoles.

I do agree that tne Wii U version is the best version to get IMO, as I'd love the motion tracker on the pad. I'll wait and see anyway. As much of a fan as I am of Aliens, I cannot justify this over some of the other games coming out, especially since none of the footage has really been suprising.

You seem hurt over that.

Nice numbers for NiNoKuni indeed. I have my pre-order in but that doesn't effect those numbers.
MysticStrummer  +   919d ago
Does playing the definitive WiiU version require buying a WiiU? Yes? Oh well that explains it.
Hicken  +   919d ago
Try not to be such a transparently blind fanboy, will you?
Darth Stewie  +   920d ago
I'm shocked Gears isn't in the top 10 for the US
Prodigy-X  +   920d ago
No hype for it that's why.
EvilFluff91  +   920d ago
Finally! Some variety, looks like people are getting bored of Military Shooters, these are the type of games that deserve our attention and money. :)

in response to kingofwiiu.....

Yeah like your def. version of bo at 1080p native and no elite service lol
Your definitive batman tht looks and performs worse thn currrent gen system
And other multiplat offerings missing key components on wiiu but you do have trine 2 hahaha

After reading the negatives of colonial marines such as terrible character animations , shiny albeit beautiful backgrounds that look fake , aliens tht are bullet sponges and terrible dialogue i might pass because it looks like its going to be hyped up mediocrity like duke nukem was.

As for Gow lol we knew tht beast would be there and based off the tech analysis of the sp demo this game is even more beautiful thn gow3 .

Im happy ni no kuni is up there especially since its a great jrpg (im currently in desert) and i love this game.
Prodigy-X  +   920d ago
I hope Ni No Kuni gets a sequel. The game is so fun.
