Not out until September and already at the top of best seller charts, even higher than Dragon Quest Swords in Japan.
Well.... now that's surprising.
Somehow I think this is not going to last too long.
With Dragon Quest arriving on the DS soon, I'm sure that will push Halo 3 way down along with the numerous Gundam and Pervy School Girl dating games arriving in Japan soon!
Nice to see Halo getting a mention in Japan, especially seeing how MS is struggling over there!
NOW we're taking numbers from Amazon seriously?
It's just an hourly thing anymore, with unpredictable spikes up the whazoo?
Amazon's lists are great indicators of buying trends. The very fact that the TOP 100 Lists are updated hourly is what makes them so useful--and dynamic.
Perhaps no other source is as revealing.
And yes, Amazon is just a single source, but it is an important one. The hourly updates show movement and, if studied, they are a great predictor of overall popularity and not a simple spike.
Oblivion 360, currently ranked at #7, has held in the top 10 for quite some time now. In fact, in recent weeks, no PS3 title has yet to top it. NGS came close (#12) but did not pass Oblivion 360 in the rankings.
To get real value and sales projections, Amazon's TOP 100 lists need to be checked several times each day, every day of the week. For those with the patience to do so, a clear idea of sales trends awaits.
For the record: Halo 3 is still ranked at #1 as of 9:30 Central time.

Ummm .. ok ... this is most surprising

and its 360 not 390 !
Four out of five of Famitsu's most wanted titles (Japan) are indeed for the PS3. Following Dragon Quest IX for the DS, comes Final Fantasy XIII, Biohazard 5, Monster Hunter 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4 all for the PS3. The real question is: How popular is Amazon of Japan?
well considering the install base of 360 is one 1/3 of that of 360. It's no wonder why they'd have more votes than 360 in that survey.
i COULD say the attach rate of games on the 360 in Japan is somewhere around 5:1 - 6:1. Which could mean people are buying more games for the 360 than ps3 in Japan.
spinning the information is a wonderful thing
