Selling better than both Soul Calibur IV and Virtua Fighter 5.

Wow @ PSP and PS3 taking over top 15.

Despite the title, this is actually great news, a 2D fighter selling 124k in its first week.

Demon Souls had a very good second week and SF4 didn't impact sales at all...

Voiceofreason3559d ago

Best selling fighter this gen? You mean in one week it already hit 8 million sold and now has more sales than SSBB? Amazing..

Of course Mario and Luigi beat Ken and Ryu.

Luigi's retarded and we all know true warriors don't pick on the handicapped. And Mario can grow to like 100X his normal size.

So while Ken and Ryu are trying to figure out what to do with Luigi, who's running at them a** first (see SSBM for reference), Mario just steps on them.

This is one of those "I don't care how long the train is as long as I got the caboose" things, isn't it?

It's more like a "Why is this little green retard trying to attack me with his ass" thing.

There's just no stopping Nintendo is there?

PantherLotus3559d ago

I'm not sure it was even close.

In regards to generational command and the longevity of the medium, Nintendo doesn't appear to be beatable at the moment.

Then again, neither did Sony 3 years ago.

Yea sony can't be too mad about those numbers practicly took every spot 2-15

Voiceofreason3559d ago

#1 DS, #5 360 #10 DS and 13-30 are all Nintendo.
Not sure how anyone could think 2-15 were Sony when clearly that is just not the case at all.
