Wow, a 360 game, outselling a Wii game with Mario game (Super Mario Galaxy) in JAPAN!!????
Ubi would be downright stupid if they don't release PS3 version of AC. Japanese gamers FTW (Though I hate to see WiiFit up there)!

jiggyjay3881d ago

wait AC hasn't been released for the PS3 in japan yet? Good thing that ubi decided to go multiplat.. Its going to be a hard decision for Square Enix and Konami to keep those big gunz you Sony Fanboyz always talk about on the exclusive list for the PS3!

I just noticed that this is in japan. Thats crazy. We can no longer predict anything over there when it comes to games. Next week the sales will probably slow for Assassins Creed. I think thats Alot of the Americans in Japan who are buying it(think Military).

Expect another 360 game in the top 10 next week because Lost odyssey just got released there.

MK_Red3881d ago

The battle of PS3 vs 360 vs Wii would be incredible next week because while 360 gets Lost Odyssey, PS3 gets GT5 and Wii has WiiFit.

green3881d ago

Thats true but what is really worrying is the fact that in the TOP 30 there are only 3 games there that are not on a Nintendo Platform.

I never thought of Assassin's Creed appealing to the Japanese but it does have alot of open living breathing world aspects the Japanese like(could it be a culturally default win for Ubi?, this hero is simular to a popular Japanese icon(Assassin with god like skillz). It has already gotten praise from Japanese elites one dude praised it for its attention to detail which means * you can do lots of things * basiclly either in quest "generally speaking" or physiclly.

I thought KUF/COD was releasing this month too?.

It's because Jade Raymond is really popular in Japan.
