Pretty impressed with Mass Effect, considering it's a western game on a western system in Japan. The zero PS3 games in the top 30 in Japan thing is honestly shocking. What the hell is going on over there?!

What's next, a Japanese NBA team?

wow didn't think Mass would do that well in Japan

It's impossible to predict how western titles will do. I would point to the fact that it really only sold 17k in its first week, which is in line with Fallout 3 IIRC.

Nothing huge, but still decent.

This must mean Microsoft have won Japan.

I know you're attempting sarcasm, but I think the point was to contrast the relative success of a single title, not disparage the PS3.

Unless that hurts people's feelings, which I'm completely in support of.
