A listing of first day sales data in Japan for various games has been released, including 3D Dot Heroes, inFamous, Winning Eleven 2010, and Summon Night X.
Next week should be very interesting for The Crystal Bearers. I'm praying that game doesn't bomb.
It depends if it's a good game or a mediocre game. If it's a bad game, you should hope it's going to bomb, because that means they will change it next time. They'll still be able to make a profit anyway it goes.
The PS3 version of PES2010 outsold the 360 version by 137k lol But yeah too bad 3D Dot heroes did not do better. I think Demon's soul's did 3 times that number. Infamous is not bad either considering at 10k. I expect PS3 sales to remain high this week.
Me too, I think Famitsu have put a lot of people off but it should do just as good as the other Crystal Chronicles games, or possibly better, which means it should do over 100K First Week, however I think with FFXIII dropping next month that a lot of people will be skipped CB and FF Gaiden and just picking that up.
Damn Notorious Man only sold 10k :( deserves so much more. Also 3d dot heroes should have sold more
Infamous higher than 3d dot heroes? Wish a niche title like 3d heroes was higher
I do agree, it looks like endless fun for me lol.
GO infamous, a really good game
I do agree 3D Dot Heroes should've done better (it looks really interesting), inFamous deserves to sell well, if it wasn't for Uncharted 2, it'd be my goty. Is 3D Dot Heroes coming stateside by the way?
[PS3] Winning Eleven 2010 142000  Winning Eleven 2010 4800
Winning Elevel 2010. PS: inFamous' Japan boxart = awesome.
I think 3D Dot Heroes is a kind of game that would do better in the West.
Ha, 3D Dot Bomb
but is just the sales for the 1st day. Being a new IP and a different style I think it would be better to wait for the monthly sales..
elementx-why is it funny to you if someones hard work bombs anyway? ?Pretty crappy lifeview right there fella. Honestly expected much better from you. Unless, of course, your whole family got mercilessly attacked and robbed by one of it's characters but I find that highly unlikely. Or are you angling for the real world to go 2D?
This game defiles the Zelda franchise. They even have a Link-like character? I don't think the loyal Nintendo Japanese fanbase would be running out to buy a cheap imitation of one of their beloved franchises for PS3.
It's not an imitation zelda, it's a create your own RPG/dungeon crawler. just because you can create link doesn't make it zelda. people these days!
I'm really excited for 3D DGH. Think over all those first day are kind of weak . Maybe everyone was broke until payday.
Wow, weak sales for 3D Dot Game Heroes. That's a lot worse than I thought it would do - I was thinking at least in the 20-30K range opening day. Definitely did not expect it to lose out to inFamous(which was branded with the equivalent of the AO rating in Japan).
