Very nice considering most Japanese don't like FPSs

the last time 360 got that high in Japan was the release of Trusty Bell
cool~ I guess Halo has fans in Japan as well

eagle214066d ago

ps2 and ps3 26,000...wii 25,000. More Sony home consoles being purchased last week. psp, doing its thang. Halo 3, great start, 360 sales good jump.

But the Wii owns Japan's console space both the PS3 and 360 need to pack up camp and go home.

HALO 3 = Trusty bell in japan, that's really sad.

Wait what are the source of this chart.
If it's vgchartz, it's not accurate.

Just take a look at this
Official M-Create Ranking of week of sep 23rd

VG Charts of week of sep 23rd

totally different.

These are probably from Famitsu since Vgchartz doesn't have numbers yet.

Did you notice how Vgchartz (and Famitsu) count both Pokemon games together and M-Create treats them as separate games (as they should IMO, some people actually buy both versions). Which is why FFVII:CC has been leading in M-Create and Pokemon in Vgchartz.

Totally different ? hardly
if you had took the time and added up the pokemon numbers (like famitsu does) this numbers look exactly like the vgcharts numbers, only that vgcharts is ~ 10% higher on all titles cause they take the famitsu numbers over the media create numbers.

overall both are as accurate as you would get sales data, as in 10-20% around the real numbers. Both numbers are estimates, not handcounted sales out of the shops.
