I really wanted Muramasa to do better. Maybe it sold better on the PSN.
PopRocks359  +   748d ago
Hey, it made the top ten list in America! That's a great thing especially when it's a niche Japanese game that's competing with The Last of Us, Animal Crossing, PXZ and Deadpool.

Personally, I'm quite proud of gamers for supporting Muramasa on Vita. Gives me hope for both the Vita console as well as other Japanese games.

Excellent reply! Its true it is the US charts seeing such a niche japanese game make it up here is a great thing. But still I wish this game can get more attention!

People still buying BO2...?

people still buying 360...????
Pisque  +   748d ago
It's funny how charts are credible and important for PS fans now that their console sells more than the xbox 360
CryofSilence  +   748d ago
If you look closely, you might notice that this is the American chart where the Xbox 360 outsold the PS3 (opposite is true globally). Stop trolling.
Benjaminkno  +   747d ago
And how many millions of units were actually replacement consoles?
MysticStrummer  +   748d ago
It's funny how you were the first person to mention PS3 and 360 sales.
bviperz  +   748d ago
Why does it even matter anymore? Get over it already.
Hicken  +   748d ago
The charts aren't credible, and never have been, because they're based in incomplete information.

However, it became SLIGHTLY more believable when they finally updated their numbers to show what other sources had been saying for months.

It's funny how charts were credible and important for xbox fans now that their console is dead last suddenly sales lost all the importance

elda  +   748d ago
IMO it's amazing how a console in the USA that don't have any exclusive software for the remainder of the year still outselling a console that does.

It's called Xbox live. It's a great Eco system. Also xox is way more user friendly than ps3. Maybe not consumer friendly but easier to use.
Kryptix  +   748d ago
lol I think you're in the wrong article. Nobody was talking about Xbox Live vs PSN till you brought it up.

On topic: Haven't seen a chart that doesn't have a Call of Duty in it. I hope this is the last one with Battefield 4 coming out soon. It deserves it more than the upcoming Ghosts, even Battlefield 3 deserves it more than Black Ops 2 right now. All the work DICE put in that game, you know?
thebudgetgamer  +   747d ago
I agree that Live has more features but you can't get more simple than the XMB.
tubers  +   748d ago
The 3DS is just.. well.. DAMN!
Shnazzyone  +   747d ago
Damn, animal crossing is positively killing it. Personally.... good, it deserves it as it is damn near perfect.
Tewi-Inaba  +   748d ago
I don't know what's more surprising
Cross Zone selling that many unites or Muramasa selling so poorly

I have Cross Zone and I had Muramasa on the Wii
It's no contest, Muramasa is the better game.
It's a real shame, maybe if it had guns and QTEs it would have sold heh....

should show support for those niche third parties vita owners.....
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   747d ago
im pretty surprised Cross zone did that well also. Thats like almost half what the Japanese version sold I think.
TongkatAli  +   747d ago
Do you agree sales don't mean something is more quality then the other ? That is mob mentality when you think cause of something has more people on its side the other is automatically inferior.

The Vita is the best handheld ever made, no joke, but its sales got destroyed from word of mouth from Nintendo fanboys and Sony lack of advertising along with crappy memory card prices,

All that aside its still going and 2014 is really looking good for JRPG games for it. I hope Dragon Crown hits the top 5 mark next month.
Tewi-Inaba  +   747d ago
No because when niche titles don't sell
publishers don't opt on translating and localazing things

That arguement works on mainline games, not on niche titles
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   747d ago
You're really blaming Nintendo fanboys for why the Vita isn't selling well? Really?

Sounds like a fanboyish excuse to me. Sony isn't infallible, just so ya know.
Hicken  +   747d ago
Actually, the sales for Muramasa aren't that bad. What, were you expecting Call of Duty numbers out of it or something?
just-joe  +   748d ago
I'm surprised Deadpool did so well.
Knushwood Butt  +   747d ago
Game and Wario bombed.

First party shovelware.
millzy102  +   747d ago
I don't think anybody expected game and wario to do well, that said I have played it (not owned) and it's good for drinking games and that's about it, if your not playing with a mate it's pretty pointless.

Surprised to see Project X Zone sold that well. Pending on how well SMTIV performs, Japanese devs may become less hesitant localizing games for the West.
IQUITN4G  +   747d ago
America sure loves xbox. This and UK seem to be the most important to MS

3DS is Killing it!!! Nintendo are doooomed!!
