First day sales for Crackdown 2, White Knight Chronicles 2, Wii Party, and more.
White Knight Chronicles 2 sold a mammoth 107,655. The first one was OK...
Its the 2nd to 5th week numbers that actually say something.
Yep gotta wait a while first day means nothing
true but not bad for a 1st day sale at all.
Mammoth? are you kidding... let see second week though.
That's actually great sales right there.However I'm still hoping for details on the western release.
Wait ti'll 2012 lol
None of these games impressed me but their sales did.
To compare, the first game sold 132,000 units.
Decent, not fantastic. The first game did generally underwhelm, after all.
wow CD2 actually sold alot more than i thought it would haha (and thats not saying much)
i can't blame them lol.
Thats exactly why Xbox hasn't done well in Japan until last month because of one game.. Monster Hunter: Battle of Frontier lol! Unfortunately after they finished with that their Xbox will get very dusty
a lot of JRPG's on the xbox, but they almost all failed hard. Most devs that made 360 JRPG's ended up porting games over to the PS3 to recuperate sales. The only games I can think of that didn't switch over were the Mistwalker games (Because they are under contract) and a couple SE fails.
They have a lot but not many are exclusive like Monster hunter Frontier, which is descent.. I imagine that Microsoft will probably market the JRPG games more, now that they have sales, all of last yeart I think Microsoft were trying to enter the Japanese market, but didn't succeed, yes they even tried advertising a lot of Fable 2 (I do actually know a girl in Japan who got it,) but for their sales last month to come close to the PS3 is just so random.. They said next year we would see a lot more exclusives for Xbox 360, I imagine a lot of the will be JRPG, this time I hope they've revised their strategy and got larger developers... Simply in the past Microsoft didn't know how to market in Japan, but finnily it worked for Monster Hunter Frontier
im surprised wii party did good considering fron that list it 2nd best seller.
White Knight Chronicles is the best JRPG this generation. Screw reviews. FFXIII sucks! This game rocks hardcore.
I agree, i dont think that FFXIII is terrible, but it did underwhelm. WKC has severely underrated scores. Ive yet to see an rpg this gen that has the towns completely streamed so you wont have to see a loading screen everytime you walk into an armory or random house. Its online system is just amazing, feels like im playing an MMO
(Which I don't) I would still name 3 or 4 JRPG's before WKC but we can have different opionions. as we do. WKC wasn't as bad as the reviews said it was... but I thought it would be in the lower end of PSX, PS2 JRPG's. Just my opinion though
DEMONS SOULS say hello hi how you doing ??
Lol. Sounds like you havn't even played Demons souls. It would never say that, it would just gut you or something.
Looks like WKC2 is going to be very worthwhile.
