Japan Virtua Fighter 5 Selling Slow

Early reports are that Virtua Fighter 5 isn't exactly flying off store shelves. AsoBitCity in Akihabara had a hands-on for customers that was so slow, a Sega employee apparently killed time by playing the title alone. And why should it be a hit? Sure, VF hasn't really matter to most Western gamers since, oh, 1997, but the game has a huge following in Japan.

is that Japan is Nintendo crazy. I wouldn't call Virtu Fighter a system seller as they really want to play it in the arcade setting in Japan. In the US where arcades a few and far between it will sell better.

Maybe the japanese gamers want something new. Bad for Sega if it's true. Games usually sale better when they first come out.
