First Day sales in Japan 8/7 Fire Emblem: New Shadow Dragons and the Blade of Light NDS = 80k Tales of Vesperia 360 = 70k
70k? Thats higher than MGS4 sales.
MGS4 did 300k first day if I'm correct
You must be joking http://www.psu.com/In-one-d... more than 300k in one day (and those numbers do not include the PS3's bundle) and who are the stupid people that agree to such false statements
@sak500: wow at the people agreeing with you...
Biggest first day sales for any Xbox 360 game thus far. Very good news for Microsoft. I also heard there have been about 10k ToV 360 bundles sold + additional hardware sales could put 360 past PS3 this week in Japan. Also, the game has a good chance of reaching 100k first week and it may even outsell Blue Dragon's LTD sales of 210k!
thats good news for MS in japan. i hope with the release of more RPG's on the 360 will help MS over there. either way i'm still picking this game up on day one. with ToV,IU,SO4,ect and more to come. i glad i have a 360.
Man I would kill for Fire Emblem ds....
We can only hope it'll get outside of Japan
Great , glad to see that the jrpgs are selling on the Xbox in Japan. I just hope they sell equally good here in the states maybe this way the Xbox 360 will continue to get good quality stream of Jrpgs.
As much as this game looks real good, I find it hard to believe it will sell well here in the US, since seeing that Lost Odyssey didnt do so well and that was supposingly one of the most anticipated jrpg's for the 360. Its sad to see 360 owners let great games like this pass by and see them buy games like army of two. I really hope this game sells well and more 360 owners open there eyes and buy these games, because if they aint then they truelly are missing out on good quality games.
for a new i.p, in a genre not particularly popular in US outside FF games, Lost odyssey did VERY well. it sold 700k+, and did decently in europe. because it didn't reach number #1 doesn't count it as selling bad. b/c by that concept, Uncharted is in the same light then.
how so? considering uncharted sold twice as much with almost half of the install base or do you mean the game reaching #1 spot in sales?
yea I really enjoyed LO. I think LO and all the other xbox 360 rpgs will do better soon after ps3 owners migrate and own a xbox because of its rpgs. I know alot of ps3 owners are hurting for rpgs and dont want to wait any longer.
I'll wait for the PS3 port of this one.
Only because you have to wait to play it on PS3. Continue to wait, what else can you do?
Well, I have no choice but to wait, it doesn't come out in Europe until 2009. I do have a 360, but I can't play it on there anyway. At least if it was on PS3, I could just import it.
quickly! for the good of the nation!!!!!! *rolls eyes*
in 2007 (october or november?) and LO came out in EU nad USA in March 2008 (end february).
70k lol nice try, MS. 300k MGS4 were sold the first day in Japan if I remember correctly (more than four times more). So I guess the other article about 'madness' in Japan was a bit 'exagerated'. Why am I not surprised ? Let's wait for Xbot damage control and spin now. It should be fun.
70k with a 600k installed base is better then 300k with a 2.3 million installed base.
Well, talk about spinning numbers... 70k is still only 70k. Nothing to worry Sony in its country... So in your opinion, if I sell 2 copies of my 'Crapbox 720' console and then sell 2 copies of my 'Tales of krakdol' RPG, it's great because it's 100 % of the install base ?
You didn't even had the mental speed to notice that those number spins were wrong. 70 / 600 = 11.7% 300 / 2300 = 13% However, Tommie still has a point. For a brand historically ignored, having a comparable reception as MGS4's compared to the total installed base is great news (and much better than Valkyria Chronicles). Nobody is saying Sony or Nintendo need to worry about Japan right now, but it's a healthy sign of a long term investment.
Or you could get on a boat and move to Japan, where people actually give a d*mn about Japanese numbers.
360 RPG in Japan = Total Failure
Well the latest "RPG" for PS3 in Japan was Valkyria Chronicles and that sold 78K in its first week.....What do you say about that? Titanic? ;D
I hate action rpg's,, especially from Tri Ace, and the people who make the Tales games. They might have good graphics but the gameplay is just freaking retarded. If you cant chop peoples heads off then there shouldn't be any free roaming movement in the fighting sequence. Traditional Rpgs are the best, and I hope that Square Enix doesn't fall into the same category when it comes to games.. Oh wait they already did with Infinite Undiscovery and Last Remnant and Star Ocean.. God, quality from the old company has went down the drain, along with this genre. Its really a crappy time to be into rpg's.
Having a 70k with 600k base is better then 2.3 million that sold 300k Metal Gear Solid 4 and of course sak500 is a complete idiot that came no where near close to Metal Gear solid 4 sales and Metal Gear Solid 4 sold without the bundles you XBox 360 fans are extremely delusional!! and I'm sorry but I had to straighten these XBox 360 fans out they just didn't get there facts right! I had to comment on there stupidity.
Xbots will always continue to be stupid, it's the way they we're born. Stupid. Keep on crying bots, your Xcrap 3fixme is going to be third place this gen! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Good to see the 360 getting some attention in Japan, the console sales have been increasing steadily too. Maybe all is not lost.
They actually think they got good games.
Xbots don't think they have good games. They KNOW they have more good games than Waitstation 3 and Flailing Retard droids COMBINED. That's why they laugh at you guys and why girls won't hang out with you. 360 http://www.metacritic.com/g... PS3 & Wii http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
haha well done ms a small victory before it sinks again. But the question is where will the sales level out. Recently the 360 has been around 5-6000 a week instead of 1-2000. Not far behind the ps3 at 10,000 a week. HD console sales in Japan tho are pretty pathetic.
