like the handheld market is going away anytime soon in Nippon. Incredible. I'm much more of a console person myself though.

Disagea and DMC4 --both being console movers in Japan

Cyrus3654661d ago

I think Disagea might get over-shadowed by the other "higher" profile release within the week.

zambrota4661d ago

i think it might be the opposite since Disagea has a loyal base and is very popular among the casuals there

DMC is usually popular among the hardcore japan audience

Cyrus3654661d ago

Still it would do better if it was the only "high profiled" release that week.

Instead everyone will be focusing on Smash Brawl...

* Super Smash Bros. Browl (Wii)
* Devil May Cry 4 (PS3, 360)
* Disgaea 3 (PS3)

PS3 and Wii sales will explode next week

zambrota4661d ago

since those games are releasing on the 31st Jan

Cyrus3654661d ago

Next weeks releases shall be really interesting, DMC 4 has a tough week to compete though, normally it'd be the highest profile game, but that will likely go to Smash Brawl.
