First day sales from 11/19 have finally been reported and include Ratchet and Clank Future 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Jak and Daxter (PSP), Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (DS), and more.
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.
holy crap L4D 2 owned Japan
well im not surprised about L4D its a first day sales there was some other XBOX games that did that before next week L4D wont be anywhere on that list
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?
Maybe zombies are the new Godzilla.
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
PLAY ASIA HAVE SOLD SHED LOADS OF IT AS WITH OTHER IMPORT SITES TO AUSTRALIA BECAUSE THE AUSTRALIAN VERSION IS EDITED AND CENSORED WHERE AS THE JAPAN VERSION ISNT
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.'
That actually made me laugh lol.
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.
they've been offering a 3 year warranty since 2007
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.
because 360 gamer in japan need something to play out there
YEAH....RIGHT -"Because they don'tz play teh shooterz all the time" lol
My PS3's blu-ray lens finally crapped out on me after 3 years. Not saying that this one instance makes the PS3 suddenly an unreliable console, but it's sad because I'm not looking forward to paying the 150 dollars to get it fixed.
buy lens from ebay on 75 and fix it yourself. Bunch of tutorial on youtube.
@ 6 I had to do it to on my 60 gig. I feel your pain. @ 6.1 Kinda makes you wonder why there are so many repair kits for the blu-ray lens on eBay for the PS3. According to some of the people on this site this problem is fake and made up, but they sure sell the hell out of those kits. Im still pissed About paying $150 to fix it, then having people on this site try to say people like us are lairs.
"Hi my names Ramon, im an xbox 360 owner. My life was a lie, full of dilusion but i managed to get hold of a black beauty called PS3 and i have turned my life around, the 360 which almost ruined my life by giving me the gaming sh|ts like halo and deprived me of my super black b|tch is currently on ebay to the lowest possible bidder, good riddence." feel free to share your experiences with the group...
You used random story/name but I bet someone actually wrote that somewhere w/ same name lolz...
These figures are good. We look forward to liberate more territory from the sympathizers of the Nazi Microsoft Workers Party. Unfortunately Soviet Sony is awaiting the fall of Nazi Microsoft before launching a full scale assault into Manchuria and China. Remember we are to wait 90 days from the fall of the Nazi regime before we assault the Nippon islands.
many people have been turining there lives around when they start makeing quality choices and useing value and smarts in there descision makeing. the ps3 for only 300 bucks is the most powerful entertainment console ever to be created. It truelly only does everything. blueray,dvd,video files, music files, ps1, ps2, usb, internet browser, netflix, data discs, dedicated servers, free online, cures cancer, you name it it does it. If you have an HD-tv and dont have a ps3 the you really wasted your money on the HD-tv and arent getting the full use out of it. Im glad to see you made the right choice and picked the console with useing your wits and getting your life back on track with the quality product that screams sleekness and sexy ness with its design and game cases/art. someone walks into your house and sees it they know that you are an intellectual with taste. othere consoles look like toys and got all sorts of perephirals hanging from it like my 8 year old sisters room. Im glad you stopped being used by the othere console and stood up for yourself sayeing no more bs and grabbed the ps3.
2 weeks in a row I am reading that a 360 game out sold all PS3 games in day 1 sales. This is surprising.
But but.....teh 640p
