58% of sales came from PS3 33% came from PS2 9% came from 360 Yep, I really think the 360 is finally catching on in Japan.....
ohhoho yesh he said 360 is catching up in Japan but it sold the least. So he saying it's catching it up but its not really catching up. hahaha yesh he's saying the opposite, hes funny. ohhoho!
lmao, that made me crack up
Watch Family Guy much?
the first game was a god awful mess
The game "DW Gundam 2" is released on 12-18-2008. 12-18-2008 through 12-21-2008 (so in four days): "DW Gundam 2" for the PS3 has sold 176,400 units. "DW Gundam 2" for the PS2 has sold 99,700 units. "DW Gundam 2" for the Xbox 360 has sold 27,000 units. bringing total sales over 303,000 units in first four days. This is very good! I wait for the European version. I would like to finally play the game :)
ps2 sales 'woah' the little buggers still going strong!
those are pretty good sales for the PS3 & PS2.. 360 doing ok numbers I guess since most ppl in Japan would probably buy it on the PS3 ne ways.
360 figures are phenomenal damn....the PS2....ran circles around the old coffee table.
Yeah me too! Can't wait for some Strike Freedom action! Finally a they've added Strike Freedom to a game other than Rengou vs ZAFT 2 Plus on the PS2 ;_; which was only released in Japan. Now i can duke it out with Sazabi with my Strike Freedom xD Which makes it even more awesome!
Holy sh1t when the PS2 outsells the Xbox on Gundam sales something is wrong. Micro$haft might aswell give up in Japan.
And people wonder why the keep making these games... *sigh*
because they sell
I hate these games, repetitive garbage.
Gundam games are fun and stick very closely to there Anime origins, which many people are fans of this is why we have a crap load of sales for these games thats why they will always keep making them because of the fans you seem to like LBP which everyone are not fans of but guess what who cares next time speak for your self!
I guess it's not obvious to some people that when you say something you are actually speaking for yourself. Anyway, I stand by my claims. I've played games like these before, I played the original's demo, I've played Dynasty Warriors, Kessen, 99 Nights, Bladestorm, Drakkengaard... how can anyone like these games? uuuuuggghhh, just read the reviews if you don't believe me. I know they make these games for a reason, because some suckers think bashing buttons repeatedly is *still* fun after how many years of sequels and spin-offs and rehashes already? And that's right, I rather play Little Big Planet, which is innovative and a lot of fun. Whoever doesn't get LBP should re-examine how much of gamers they think they are.
Dynasty Warriors? At least it's gundam. Those are more fun than just plain old dynasty warriors.
Holy sh1t when the PS2 outsells the Xbox on Gundam sales something is wrong. Micro$haft might aswell give up in Japan......................... ............................. i concur
wow, Japanese people like really weired game.
From somewhere...Just forgot. I might rent it if they release a demo that impresses me.
The review scores from FAMITSU: PS3 version= 10-9-9-8 XBox 360 version= 10-9-9-8 PS2 version= 9-8-9-7 source: http://koeiwarriors.co.uk/ And here is the Famitsu Review scan: http://koeiwarriors.co.uk/i... .
from wut i heard,this one has online play (co-op i believe)-so that could of ben a big selling point since japs like the more superrior and FREE online service provided by sony. im personally thinking about importing it since these types of games have less then stellar story drivin gameplay... im a big fan of the dynasty warriors franchise so wen this hits the states,its all mine (if not sooner).
Man, the Japanese are so weird this gen. I mean, obviously each to his own, but you give them games like MGS4, LBP and Resistance 2 and they barely bat an eyelid. Give them DWG2 and they go nuts. This will likely overtake MGS4 as the best selling PS3 game. I think all that Wii shovleware they're consuming has affected their gaming taste buds. No offense Japan, but yeah, you're strange.
easy, make a metal gear anime series, even if its crap, theyll get into it, and buy more copies of the game, im totally not serious about this btw.
Its actually a good idea. I think they should have made an LBP catoon about 6 months before the game came out. The cartoon hype would have fed the game hype and it would have sold better.
Japan loves sh*tty games =)
NO, Japan loves Anime based games. Hence why the anime dating sim on PC market is bigger than the console gaming market there. It's True, Akihabara is convoluted with PC dating sim billboards. Anime is a much bigger industry than gaming over there. They got 3 really BIG yearly anime conventions opposed to only 1 big gaming convention.
DW gundam is taking it to far lol.....the 1st one was horrible
