After enjoying its minute on the Japanese charts at number one, Halo 3 is nowhere to be seen. Plus, more on the exclusive Monster Hunter 3 Wii deal.
its a done deal, no more 360 sales in japan intil FFXIII goes muli plat *sarcasm*
How many 360's have been sold in Japan. I think it's a pretty good attach rate for the people who actually own them over there.
Not all that surprising... Halo3 has the same appeal in Japan as a Dating Simulator has in North America
hey, dating sims are the only way i get girls! XD anyway, if you read all the way till the end of the article, he jokingly (and seriously) points out how nintendo is holding back this generation. so i guess monster hunter 3 wont look much better than monster hunter 2... thanks nintendo!
"and Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core sold 30,000 more copies, for a total of 680,000, which is especially remarkable when one considers how many copies are currently cramming used stores -- some places are selling it for as low as 2,100 yen (its retail price is 5,280)." huh? Are they saying this isn't a keeper? :( Though it is selling well so that's cool
I didn't expect it to last long, but just the fact that it made it to the top of the charts in Japan when they aren't big fans of FPS games is a huge feat.
I can understand that...
It's funny how this article is titled "Japan: Halo 3 Bows Out" but it's about the titles in the Japanese top 10. Halo 3 has so many haters on its jock that it's almost unbelievable. Who cares what's not on the chart, should the title be telling you what is on the chart? Whatever.
Its all a matter of Time before a wise company from Japan asks Microsoft to use the Halo franchise for a RPG. Then It stays on the chart in Japan (and US) for weeks,Months,Years,decades,mil lenniums,light years,"to infinity and beyond"
i am not all that surprising...
This is 100% full pure proof that the Japanese market wont except MS anymore. They should pull out those dusty 360s from small game shops and ship them to Mars, so when the US launch their ship they'll have something to play up there.
you say this is full proof that the 360 is doomed, but the article was about Halo being in the #1 spot. Did you read that correctly? I said it was in the #1 spot!!! You are an ignorant fanboy.
