Media Create has published the latest software sales figures from Japan (official numbers).
Famitsu was slightly off the mark this week.
The top one 360 game almost sold as much as the top 2 ps3 games....in Japan..
We're talking about FIFA, a multiplatform game that is obviously outselling its 360 counterpart. (Minus one standard deviation in intelligence for you) Then, Uncharted 2 is in its second week, Forza is in its first. Uncharted 2 has western appeal, Forza has global appeal. PS3 appeals to gamers of all tastes, 360 (especially in japan) appeals to those that like the most prevalent genres on 360 (shooters and racing games). (minus 3 standard deviations in intelligence for you) Your IQ Score results: 40. I give you a big F (it stands for Fail).
I was playing the Lost Planet 2 demo last night for a couple of hours and every Japanese gamer in the lobby owned Forza 3. When you check somebody's profile on XBL the game they were playing prior will flash on the guide tile before the current appears. This is also the case when a game or profile doesn't show a persons country. I hope the Japanese like Forza it deserves the sales the game offerers a feel(driving experience) very hard to get across in video games.
[PS3] Uncharted 2 – 18,000  Forza Motorsport 3 – 32,000
Sales =/= quality remember? Good sales for both of them.
Nice try to spin Uncharted 2's second/third week sales, but Uncharted 2 sold more the FIRST DAY (46K) than Forza 3's 32,000 this past WEEK. http://www.ps3center.net/ne...
does that matter i already have my copy
Forza Motorsport 3 – 32,000 / NEW PS3] Uncharted 2 – 18,000 / 72,000 jump out.
Nice to see that you comment twice saying the same exact thing. That is the definition of spam.
Japanese like their cars tuned and are more of petrol heads. They will definitely like Forza3 if they can get over their anti american feelings.
I was going to add the same thing you said but changed my mind. LOL at my 4 disagrees for nothing.
Of course we would get disagrees ;) You know the site is overrun with sony lovers.
That we took your precious site from you
More like pro-reliability, lmao Oh, and sorry, but features for red-necks != features for japanese car lovers. Also, I find it hilarious that a mod with 360 in its username agrees with a duplicate account user (The_1 a.k.a. Why Dis, the "nasim" of 360 fanboys) while at the same time complaining about "who owns the site", lmfao.
Why don't you compare Forza 3's first week to Uncharted 2's first week. A lot of you Microsoft fanboys are grasping at any straws you can huh? even if they are imaginary like your silly notion of Forza 3 against Uncharted 2
@ gamingprat Dude, it's UC2. It's the BEST PS3 game EVER! in its second week it falls to forza. in japan. That's saying something. Like it or not, shadow has a valid point, which you clearly do not like. Ask yourself why that is.
look at this kid's reply This has nothing to do with "best game ever" as you put it. If you want to look at it that way, why did halo and gears also have drops like uncharted 2's in Japan? There is no "point" to shadow's post. The bottom line is he is comparing a second week game to a first week game. And with all the hype and advertisement Forza 3 got (even in Japan) there is no excuse. Microsoft AND you fanboys hyped Forza 3 up to be a game made in Heaven. Just looking at your and your comment tells me that the Neocrisis article about you Microsoft fanboys is very, VERY on point. You defend Microsoft at ANY cost lol It's not about "liking or disliking" a point. See, you actually have to HAVE a point for it to be liked or disliked to begin with. You guys need to stop grasping at straws Please, DO remember to come back to this comment in Forza 3's second week :)
forza tops two ps3 games because japanese love simulation racing .. do you know what will happened if this simulation racing were GT5 ??
Uncharted 2 is in its second week. Forza 3 is in its first. Uncharted 2 had over 50,000 in its first week in japan. Nice try at spinning though :)
what else u can expect from not educated fangirl, whos paying 50 bux for facebook and twitter,p2p,while saying live is light years ahead of psn. (shadow) @commodore come back next week with forza sales in japan with that valid points
You act like we all don't know what type of games sell better in the Japanese market. "Zomg, teh Forza is doin' better than U2!" Lol Japanese love RPGs and racing sims, that's a fact. For U2 to sell like it has and still be in the top 10 is amazing. Japanese typically don't buy action/adventure shooters like U2, so for that game to have sold this much so far is amazing. Honestly, 30,000 for a racing sim in it's 1st week is nothing. Wait until GT5 comes out then you can really see what great numbers are. GT5 will sell like sushi in Japan, and you MS fanboys WILL be eating your words when that time comes. Really, GT(PSP) did 135,000 it's first week in Japan, what do you think GT5(PS3) will do?
