Japan Bows Down to PS3's Dominance

Playstation Lifestyle Writes:
Price drop or no price drop, the PlayStation 3 has been slaughtering other consoles on its home turf. In fact, it's doing so well that it has actually managed to outsell the Nintendo Wii for 2009. The current year-to-date figures put the Playstation 3 at 447,700 units sold, while the Nintendo Wii is at 431,833 units sold.

@ Ghost ..
True man,it started with YAKUZA 3 but it will END with Monster hunter 3.
HOWEVER,Nintendo needs to relize that this is only the begining........ the begining of the end for the wii.

Monster Hunter 3 has nothing on FF XIII.

I'm really curious to see if FF will sell on the HD systems over here in the states. Certain gamers got the PS2 for that game and I'm just wondering if the PS3 is too rich for their blood?

We will see soon any how.

People eat Monster Hunter in Japan. They even have restaurants that have Monster Hunter booths.

and of good quality as well. The 360 is whipping Sony in that area in terms of numbers. The 360 may have a lot of JRPG's but I must admit the quality, or lack thereof, is speaking for themselves. I do believe that Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon are of a nice, passible quality despite the hang-ups though.

At this point I must point out that one, if not both of them were made with the Unreal Engine, which negates the "UE sucks on the PS3" argument, if you think about it.

I enjoyed the story, gameplay, and visual style.

But from a technical standpoint, Unreal Engine 3 reallllllly crippled that game.

Mass Effect is another one, which i loved and just finished playing. It gives a great mix of linear/open world play.
