There were a few games that didn't show up on Media Create's software data this week (like Jak and Daxter, The Calling, Metal Fight Beyblade). As we know now, though, it's because of low sales. And it looks like the shipment of Beyblade was much too big, as the sell-through rate was only 9%.

Jak & Dax all the way :D Good to see it's selling.

Bungie3151d ago

L4D 2 owned Japan

wxer3151d ago

there was some other XBOX games that did that before

LeonSKennedy4Life3151d ago

Interesting.

I didn't know L4D was so popular over there.

Good job!

L4D2 sold THAT much on the 360 in JAPAN!??

Am I missing something here?

LeonSKennedy4Life3151d ago

Maybe zombies are the new Godzilla.

sikbeta3151d ago

Not a surprise, every game that have zombies on it get the LOVE of JAPAN, no one remember those RE survivor games, they were CRAP but for some reason CAPCOM made 3 Survival FPS + 1 Hybrid TP+FP Survival Shooter

Yes.

Lord Kemp has been taught an ancient Japanese proverb.

This explains why the xbox brand does not sell well in Japan.

On my travels through Japan i met this ancient wise samurai master in the mountains near Fuji.

He said to me, the young apprentice --- 'Wise man does not buy faulty hardware.'

steck673151d ago

That actually made me laugh lol.

-Alpha3151d ago

Yet ironically the 360 has been in second place for the majority of the time, and now that the RRoD ordeal is mostly over, you still have to cling on to it just to bash the 360 ;)

People buy faulty hardware all the time. The PS2 had DRE issues-- at least MS covered the 360 with a 3 yr warranty for RROD. In fact, thanks for bringing this point up because it says a lot about the consumers that choose to support a console when it is at its worst.

Alpha we all know the 3 year warranty was because they didnt want and huge lawsuit NOT because they want to give back to thier consumers (im not saying SONY has their warranty for the cosumers either)...but i must admit im a little bitter about the whole RRoD thing as my first xbox 360 rrod'd right after my warranty was up...but who knows second time could be a charm.

@below

My bad i thought it didnt start till the end of '08 for some reason...guess thats just when i heard about it and decided to go buy a new one.

Odion3151d ago

they've been offering a 3 year warranty since 2007

-Alpha3151d ago

I didn't say that they were trying to be "nice" but DRE was a pretty widespread issue (not as bad as RRoD) but Sony didn't do anything to alleviate the tension.

If you check out the posting history of the guy above you'll notice he loves to unreasonably trash on the 360.
