Japan: Nintendo Sells 820k+ Software in One Week, Sony 290k

Media Create Sales: 11/17 - 11/24

The latest Media Create Top 30 has been released and it appears that Japan has forgiven Nintendo for Wii Music and has instead decided to have a little party of "let's buy everything that we can!"

Between Animal Crossing: City Folk, Chrono Trigger DS, and several others, Nintendo moved more than eight-hundred thousand units of software in one week.

The anticipated 360 RPG The Last Remnant (SE) had a great week at 100k, and Namco Bandai's Gundam v Gundam did extremely well at 267k.

The PS3 was nearly shut out of the top 10 but was able to squeak in with Way of the Samurai 3 at around 20k.

What!? Nobody here speaks gibberish, translate please

PantherLotus4243d ago

I think he was commenting on the 360 game that sold 5 times more than the first PS3 game on the list.

Then again, celebrating 360 success in Japan is similar to cheering for the Special Olympics. You're really doing it to make yourself feel better, not them.

Makidian4243d ago

Thanks for that but it is still gibberish speak. Would it be so hard to just say 'OMG LOL, 360 game outsold PS3 game by 5x', instead of what was written!?

IzKyD13314242d ago

hmmm a JRPG from Square selling well in it's first week? who would have thought! and these numbers are nothing to cheer about, GTA IV (a sandbox openworld game e.g. NOT a JRPG from Square) sold 130K in it's first week, I know you probably heard this like a million times, but white knight chronicles will destroy the 360 in terms of hardware sales and software sold(i mean, even more than it is now)

That top 15 Wii games chart only has one game from a 3rd party. Read: only one game from a 3rd party has sold more than 260k on the Wii!!

Captain_Sony4242d ago

There are two 3rd party games they list. Also I am curious as to what point you were trying to make.. Can you even name off a great 3rd party game for Wii? You just seem intent on pointing out the obvious that most every else already knows. 3rd party software at this point just doesnt compare to 1st party games. That tends to happen though when the console owner has faith in the system from the beginning and 3rd parties get got empty handed and dont do anything to fix that til 6 months after launch

JOLLY14243d ago

The 360 has a game at #4. That is the highest next gen piece of software. 100,000 is awesome for a $60 game. The next closest $60 game only sold 20,000

lloyd_wonder4243d ago

Guess where it'll be next week...

InMyOpinion4242d ago

It'll be down at the bottom with LBP.

v1c1ous4242d ago

you;re a funny guy. one of the more sensible 360 fans on this site :D

there taste in games has stood still, animal crossing at number one? vastly superior lbp nowhere to be seen wtf

TOO PAWNED4242d ago

Western game vs Japanase established IP. Who wins in Japan? Hmm let me think on this hard one...
Strangly enough it seems Japanese dudes are making best levels on LBP

JUUKENS HOT4242d ago (Edited 4242d ago )

lbp is the most innovative game of the year animal crossing number 1? to right japan are backwards when it comes to games, a generic poor rpg like last remnant still made it in the top 10

square enix its called karma sell your soul this is what happens you make crap games

Kill Crow4242d ago

as Viva Pinata is to Xbox

the problem with both these games is that their target audience already have a wii

chanto234242d ago (Edited 4242d ago )

"LBP is for PS3 as Viva Pinata is to Xbox the problem with both these games is that their target audience already have a wii."

I completely disagree with your opinion...LBP is targeted to everybody and believe it or not i think the game suits more to the hardcore gamer. The game is hard for the "casual" player after the first couple of levels, but it's so cute that it appeals to them too. Graphically the game is astounding too, it just didn't get the marketing it deserved from Sony, but by the end of this gen LBP will be one of the biggest sellers...

Kill Crow4242d ago

AHHAHAHAHAHHA

I just laughed coke out mmy nose .....

It's for kids. I work in a software firm where most of the developers, engineers and support staff have PS3's .... and the ONLY people who have bought LBP are the ones with kids ... I just don't know anyone that's dead keen on it.

It's cutsie little cartoon characters, just like viva ... and unfortunately Most people who dig those sort of things have wii's already ;-)

"I completely disagree with your opinion...LBP is targeted to everybody and believe it or not i think the game suits more to the hardcore gamer. The game is hard for the "casual" player after the first couple of levels"

lol you must be a comedian. Do u have a show..can i come watch>?

Just face it LBP is for EVERYONE,... i do know how hard it is for u sony guys to comprehend this, i feel for u. ooh even KIDS might play it (look out....coz u know..kids dont play the cOmPleX ps3...*cough*)

U could say the same thing about super mario bros too. It starts off easy as, but progressively gets harder. Now that game was meant for EVERYONE (it came with the system..for kids to play when they got the NES).

Just coz something starts off easy then gets hard (like u said LBP does)...doesnt mean its a "hardcore" game only. I really hate these terms "hardcore" and "casual"...they are so mixed up in meaning (especially on this site) they have no value.
