Impressive fire emblem numbers given you can't find the game at any store lol. Went to a few here in NYC and all sold out/backordered since release.

jagstatboy1893d ago

In my area, Gamestop did not have any, neither did Best Buy...can't even find it on Amazon except from a price gouger. I finally found one at Target. They had exactly 2 copies.

TruthbeTold1893d ago

I got tired of waiting so I just went ahead and downloaded it. Unfortunately to do so, I had to delete some blocks/games and now that I have it, my 3DS is full again. Bleh...

Great game though. Loving it so far.

-Superman-1893d ago

Someone please explain me, why Xbox 360 keep outselling PS3 all the time, when PS3 has more exclusive games and Americans keep saying that PS3 has no exclusive games...
What the hell is going on in AMERICA???

clearelite1893d ago

There are many Americans like me who strongly prefer what Playstation has to offer.

The answer to your question however is mainly the marketing here in the states.

TruthbeTold1893d ago

Here is a better question. Why is it SO important to you? Both consoles are doing well. Who cares why in one region, one of them is doing better?

plaZeHD1893d ago (Edited 1893d ago )

Yeah it's kind of weird, both market heavily in North America, but Xbox 360 keeps beating PlayStation 3 in that region. That might be the case why Sony is losing tones of money, they market their products where they are getting kicked by their competitors. You gotta give a credit to Micro-Soft's marketers they do the obvious and the right decision, they market on the region where they are gaining profit from. But Sony, Sony always does it wrong, they gain profit in Europe, but instead of marketing heavily their they do it in North America.
But what can you do.
Sony...Sony never changes.

Jobesy1892d ago

It may sound a bit racist but I notice the Xbox brand is huge with white middle America. Where I live the demographic is mainly an ethnic population and the PS3 is the console of choice.

who write these damn ARTICLES??? one week we see 360 u.s. weekly chart "360 ahead of ps3" and the next following week ps3 ahead of 360.... worldwide sales ps3 ahead, wii in 2nd place follow by 360......half the time i dont believe people still buying 360 since 2006 then again after MS banned million gamers off XBL previously and RROD fiasco it's possible.

Shnazzyone1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

It took me about 4 stores to even find it. Crazy since my area has way more electronics stores than even rational.

All area targets, out, all area walmarts, out, all area gamestops, out. I was gonna try best buy but a kmart was right nearby. Tried that out. They had 2 copies. :^/

Note to self: Always try Kmart first.

Standard numbers for the US. Slumping year on year. Some new hardware please.

MasterCornholio1893d ago

Theres already new hardware on the list and its called the Wii U which is being outsold by the Wii in the states.


TheGrimOfDeath1893d ago

Holy shit, the Wii us selling more than the Wii U. Is this going to be similar to the Vita and the PSP?

wiium641893d ago

no it is not just look at the sales for ps3 and 360 in their first three months, see? the wii u is doing great compared to what sony and microsoft did.

SlyFamous021893d ago

U are preaching to the choir bud, the big difference between the Wii-u and the PS3 is that the PS3 was $200 more than the Wii-u at launch. What is going to happen when the PS4 and the next xbox is released, its going to be a blood bath. That being said, I dont think the Wii-u is a bad system but I do think Nintendo played their hand too early, but in their defense I dont think they had choice seeing that the Wii has lost its shine completely.

Realplaya1893d ago

@sly that means when those systems come out they'll be the most expensive systems on the market. Imo I think there selling for at least 500 plus ii doubt companies want to take a hit finacialy in this econimic crisis.

darren_poolies1893d ago

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time did better than COD?? That's awesome.

CommonSenseGamer1893d ago

Yeah, cause COD wasn't released last year at all.

Good_Guy_Jamal1893d ago

Not sure if trolling. . .it sold less than 90k units in its debut week, those sales are abysmal.

YoungPlex1893d ago

Damn Nintendo! Fire Emblem is a great game and here they are shipping limited quantities on purpose, just so they could make people buy it on the eShop, at least that's my theory... Either way, I reserved my copies and picked them up day one! If there's one game to buy on the 3DS this year, it should be Fire Emblem; I'm having a great time playing it!
