The Bitbag writes, "Ratchet & Clank Future was released in Japan last week to a dismal reception. Hailed as the number one Playstation 3 title to date, Sony only moved 11,814 copies in it's first week."
not suprised, its not the japs game, if japs dont make the game they dont buy it
sad, a single game selling more than the 360 in japan.
I dont think "Japs" like to be called "Japs". They consider it offensive
oh, you mean kind of like Halo3 selling more than there are ps3 consoles sold? or any other xbox360 game that sells more per week than ps3 console sells in one week? great spin on the numbers....dumb comment award for you
Someone sure scraped the bottom of the Web barrel to come up with this piece of crap.
ratchet and clank actually sells pretty well in Japan. The reason 4 such low sales is cus of the dynasty warriors release am guessing. Lets wait till nxt week to see how sales do
This game tanked period. Why are the big ps3 games tanking so bad? Heavenly Sword, Folklore, R&C, Eye of Judgement, and the rest of the bunch are selling horrible. What are you guys doing?
Question: how do you have 5 bubbles? Edit: how does Zhunk own 5 bubbles? hey man, do you exist?
Well even Mario Galaxy "tanked" in Japan. First week arounf 250k, second week 80k, third most likely around 40k-50k. It didn't move any units (PS3 out sold Wii for first time in Japan). Ratchet & Clank is popular in Japan, its just that install base is to small and those "fans" don't own PS3 yet since they are most likely kids that can't afford it yet. But i am sure that it will have long legs and it will sell over 100k quickly. FPS Resistance sold 140k in Japan, so ratchet can do it. Mario FLOP
No Vojkan don't talk sh!t. There are what, 1 mln. or 1.5 mln. PS3 units out there in Japan and then only sell about 11k in one week from R&C? That's just sad.
Vojkan that was the worst spin I read in awhile. So 11k in one week is the same as 250k in one week? Did you just write that?! Ah whatever I have Mario which is an awesome game and I keep hearing that R&C is just as awesome so you can take that for what it's worth.
Dude, seriously, any comment you make towards PS3 shouldn't really count, considering you're an xbot fanboy to the same degree as theMART and Bladestar. R&C is doing well in the states, and as for Japan, well, they kinda like their own flavor of games more than ours. And given that Dynasty Warriors is HUGE in japan, A lot of gamers passed over R&C to buy it, understandably so.
Maybe the real problem is gaming in Japan is tanking. They seem to want to do more cell phone gaming now.
And what are you doing? Why are 360 fans so bored that they shift through PS3 tagged news just to bash on them? There's something called constructive criticism and there's just being annoying.
The game has tanked worldwide, it has failed to make a significant impact just like every other PS3 exclusive this year. I really feel sorry for PS3 devs, because Sony has basically made it nearly impossible for them to make a profit on the console thanks to its poor design which drives up costs and also Sony's prohibitive royalty payments
THose 186k is for NA market. So article is a little biased. If i am not wrong R&C has not yet been released in EU, and even if it was those 186k don't include EU numbers LOL, that is ONLY for NA. So again article is "little" biased. EDIT: Here you can see that it was released on 10th of November in EU so there is NO WAY that those numbers are worldwide as "article" states it. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
You're now officially worse than TheMart, POG and FirstKnight put together. Congratulations!
Agreed, Zhuk is a complete d!ckhead. I feel sorry for his parents
ho ho ho 200+ Renegade!
oh man get a Life, you are more then a Xbot man R&C:TofD is a awesome Game, and will sell more in time.
I own 3 of the games you mention, and I think they are all great. Its too early to say whether a game will be successful of not if you are only judging their first couple of weeks sales. It is not just PS3 titles you should look at, what about PGR4 on the 360? Such an important franchise and hardly any excitement for the game. I played the demo and it is better than I thought it would be, even better than Forza 2 in many cases. You can never explain why some gemaes can be come unexpected hits and others do not meet expectations. EA recently stated that the Fifa 08 sales where higher in terms of percentage of install base for the PS3 than the 360. The figures you use are also skewed in that you use US only software sales and measure that against global install base, which is illogical and misleading. In terms of R&C, it obviously is not as popular as Dynasty Warriors in Japan. The sales figures for those titles would be reversed in the US.
And here they coooooooome, why do so many people without PS3s come in and troll PS3 topics?
I from taiwan!! the game Sell well here!! You xbot juSt anti any about PS3 newS!! go back play your 360!! Ratchet iS AAA game
lol dude u should have just kept quiet
You see kids, this is the reason why you must stay in school.
I'm not sure if that guy is from Taiwan, or if he was joking, but unless you know Cantonese well enough to do the equivalent of what he's doing here on this message board in Taiwan, you shouldn't question his education. Know what I mean? A comment like that makes it look like you either didn't read enough of the post to realize that he said he was from Taiwan, didn't understand the post enough to understand that he was from Taiwan, or you fit the disgusting stereotype of "Dumbass American with nothing to back up his arrogance but BS" which needs to be shed post haste.
All I can say is wow... That's the very reason Bush was re-elected. People like them. Uninformed, care free, arrogant, and proud of it. Embarrassing. :(
This is a great game that deserves better sales than it has had so far. It's not as if PS3 owners have a lot of other good games to choose. I'm afraid the the same thing could happen to Uncharted. If Uncharted follows the same sales trajectory as Ratchet, then why should MS worry about the likes of LBP or KZ2? Even if they turn out great it's no guarantee that they'll make much bank. So far releasing great games on the PS3 has been like casting pearls before swine.
The game flopped all over the place, no suprises. Sony fanboys don't buy games period. They just bash instead.
Lol, even Halo 3 in japan sold more than that. R&C is a FLOP.
How many PS3 units... 1 or 1.5 mln. are sold in Japan, right? 11k copies of the game sold. Not even 1% of all users have bought the game the first week. PS3 is just sold as a cheap BluRay player. These sales confirm it clearly.
anyway. to the rest bots look at God of war 2 sales in Japan and stop this sh1t.
Let me guess, Mart. You must be one of those teen XBots who play HALO 3 and scream down the headphone on each kill?? What a pathetic bunch you really are. Isn't it ironic that M$ makes money from muppets like you
