While Metal Gear Survive did not show a stellar performance in Japan at retail, it managed to surpass Monster Hunter World in digital sales.
surprised to see craps like ME Catalyst higher than SotC or DB Fighterz
It was on sale. Both SOTC and FighterZ did pretty bad digitally in Japan. No idea why.
Fighter Z is not a competitive games and the Japanese know this. Just another anime button masher.
Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is awesome. One of my top 10 this generation. Played it twice last year. The music, art direction and everything. Love it!
No it’s not it’s junk. Is a janky uninspired repetitive mess.
Mirror's Edge Catalyst (save your thumb the extra tap—there's no colon) is a good game—ignore the angry mob mentality—it received a seventy-four percent on Metacritic. That's far from junk. I was a huge original Mirror's Edge fan. And, while I was hoping for DICE to knock-it-out-of-the-park with something a bit more phenomenal, I certainly wasn't upset about anything.
Wow... just wow...
Would be interested to know how the Japanese gaming community like the game...or not. Maybe its found a niche market there. I have to admit I have never been a huge fan of the Metal Gear franchise but even Metal Gear Survive looked like a cheap cash in on the Metal Gear name.
Wow this crap is selling in Japan ? I thought it would bomb.
Lol maybe it's just japanese people supporting their fellowmen considering the situation at konami right now, if metal gear survive does not sell well it is possible that the devs who worked on it will be assigned to non gaming related work.
Too bad that people actually giving money for this.........thing.
"Sony Interactive Entertainment released its sales charts for the week February 19th and February 25th in Japan, " THE WEEK I see the comments here but don't be suprised. It's somewhat misleading to seem as if it's doing well which by other reports its not. It's that launch week for the game so let's look at the big picture. It's like saying "Hey look everyone! The new 'avengers' blu ray tjat released this week sold better than 'the gaudians of the galaxy' blu ray which has been out for a while now. How about that!". Not the best example but you get the idea. Outselling monster Hunter on that week is no shock because most people that wanted monster Hunter already have monster Hunter.
MH sold 54K at retail in the latest weekly figures, so clearly there are still people that want it.
Of course. I know I do , but the numbers are no where near the amount that it would have been on launch week which kinda make sensational articles lile this hold no water on a larger narrative.
I guess it’s selling exclusively on the name alone. Doubt it’ll hold that spot after this week.
Japan loves konami and metal gear
Wonder what kind of message this will send Kojima and Konami.
Really,? A non-Kojima Metal Gear is selling?
