Numbers don't lie, but the person posting them can always change them

lol Yakuza 3 beat Mario & Luigi RPG life time sales. That's pretty cool, especially considering the NDS userbase in Japan.
rockleex  +   2000d ago
The times they are a'changing...
The tide is slowly turning. There will be a calm before the storm.

Then the tsunami will come. It is called the PlayStation 3. >:D

That's cause your quoting Media Create source, while this is Famitsu source.

There are 2-3 different reporting agencies in japan.

Sony really cleaned out with 75,000 sold between PSP and PS3 and over 600,000 games sold between the top two.
SiLeNt KNighT  +   2001d ago
i find it funny how star ocean is called 'The Last Hope'...it kinda is the 360's in japan. sadly for MS next week it will be out of the list. one of the best selling jrpg's for the 360 and total its sold less than half Y3 sold in one week. wheres that article saying how well the 360 is doing in japan. what a joke
Bathyj  +   2001d ago
C'mon, I made that joke months ago, and a few times since.

You're right but, it is funny.
SiLeNt KNighT  +   2001d ago
my bad i didnt see it. great minds think alike.

and great games sell accordingly. apparently SO4 is NOT one of them
ChickeyCantor  +   2001d ago
" my bad i didnt see it. great minds think alike."

So do stupid minds...you aren't really being realistic here =P!

...i'm kidding ...put the rage away >=D
Superduper09  +   2001d ago
It's nice to see the PS3, PS3 and Yakuza doing well in Japan.

TheFART is a 12 year-old fanboy who pulls numbers from his a$$, so no surprise here.
Kulupoo  +   2001d ago
Yakuza selling nice in japan...
now port yakuza 3 to north america plz
I <3 u Sega... despite of me not buying any of ur sonic games anymore
KillaManiac  +   2001d ago
Valk Chronicles = great Sega game on PS3.....easily one of top sleeper hits this console generation
Bathyj  +   2001d ago
Why doesnt someone make a game out of The Seven Samurai, but in colour of course with a realistic combat system.

That would be huge, rounding up guys, training peasants, defending the village. Japan would go nuts.
eagle21  +   2001d ago
Awesome week Sony.
here's to an awesome year too. :)
ShinnokDrako  +   2001d ago
Not bad for Sony. Nintendo sells good, as usual. SO4 is already disappearing..... wrong SE politic, it had to be multi and on PS3/Wii too if they wanted to sell more, much more (over all on Wii).
Let's see how it will be in the next weeks, RE5 is coming and i guess japanese ppl are waiting for it, over all on PS3
heroicjanitor  +   2001d ago
Really makes you think
How much money did Microsoft give Square Enix? Was it the money to cover a million sales?
chasegamez2  +   2001d ago
i said this last week
that Star Ocean 4
will be out the top 10 the next week
boy was i close
AKNAA  +   2001d ago
Yakuza better than I thought?
Whoa! I didn't think Yakuza was that big to dominate sales like this?!
It Pretty much murdered star ocean 4!!! I guess Sega made a smart move to stick with a Sony exclusive rather than convert to microsoft ( Ahem..SE).

Good Numbers
Let's hope this trend continues. And here's to hoping that the States will follow. I am curious as to why the Wii had the sudden drop in sales though and the PS3 had such a spike. Must be the Resident Evil 5 affect.
callahan09  +   2001d ago
Damn, Yakuza did more than twice the sales in its first week as Star Ocean did its first week. That's crazy. Congratulations, Sega.
FinalomegaS  +   2001d ago
Star Ocean did pretty good for the amount of 360 units in Japan I guess.

I'm sure Sony must be happy ( finally) to see HW sales, Nintendo should just release the multi color wii's. This is the First single color system they've had in a while. I would love a black or ruby red version.
ChickeyCantor  +   2001d ago
Nintendo And Sony will put up a real fight in japan.
Once FF:vs13 for PS3 comes out it all goes booom, and then there is dragon quest for the Wii( or monsterhunter)....its scary i tell ya...

Looking forward to the wars =D cause we know they will be inevitable.
heroicjanitor  +   2001d ago
I wish
That the ps3 was at the same price as the wii at their launches, I would love to see how their sales would've progressed, but in all honesty I see wii sales dying down(in Japan at least) by the time ps3 sales start picking up. I foresee a titanic struggle in europe though:)
ChickeyCantor  +   2001d ago
Why do you see sales dying?
What does the Ps3 have to offer that it will crush the Wii?
Do realise that a game like monster hunter or DragonQuest could push the Wii higher than ever...same will happen to the Ps3 with FF.

keep in mind that they both have software that japan goes crazy about.
So i dont see how "wii sales" are dying...while in fact both are just "beginning" to sell considering the heavy known titles Japan has.
heroicjanitor  +   2001d ago
How come if someone says anything about the wii to you
You immediately spring into a defensive stance wondering why people can't see that the wii's games are actually super. I meant that I think it will reach saturation point in Japan, unless they bring out a pink version or something.
ChickeyCantor  +   2001d ago
How am I jumping in defense?
You are the one who actually says something without giving a reason to it.

Its not me being defensive, its the likes of you who can't build a good argument.

Again why would it reach saturation point? you keep saying that but you don't give a good reason to why it would happen.

To actually contradict you i said both consoles have games japan really want, they are gonna sell massively in japan. PS3 and the Wii will. See im also complimenting the Ps3 its not a Wii defense.

Why isn't the Ps3 getting to a point it starts to saturate, so instead of insinuating that im a "wii-fanboy" explain WHY YOU THINK IT WILL REACH SATURATION POINT.

This place is getting more horrible by the damn day for F sakes.

Also i never knew you were japan that you actually decide for them what a "good" game is. Cause its japan who massively also bought Wii-sports ( yes they had to buy it, we got it for free ) with their Wii's.

The reason I say you jumped to it's defense is you said how is the ps3 going to crush the wii, when all I said was I see wii sales dying down and ps3 sales picking up. I didn't mention the ps3 crushing it and I only think it's going to happen in Japan since it's a smaller market, I still think it's going to own Europe and America. I think most people who want a wii have one now, since for the most part price wasn't a problem, so I don't see the wii getting a sales boost from great exclusives. It hasn't changed since the start really, while the ps3s major games are only starting to come out this year. For example the people who wanted to buy a mario/zelda(not their only games, just an example) game got the wii. The fans of older ps2 games might not have a ps3 yet so when their favourite game comes out they will most likely get it.

See that wasn't so hard.

Also my first post was about PS3 vs Wii, so i thought you were talking about that.
mirroredderorrim  +   2001d ago
lol, the PS2 is still in there!

The PS2 is the console that refuses to kill-over. Brilliant.
