Japan sure love the PS3 there.

What's wrong with the Japanese? They only buy Pokémon, monster hunter and dragon quest, and manly handhelds.

Japan is a dying market now, third behind Europe.

RedDead2969d ago

What's wrong with the American's? They only but Cod, Halo and Fable. and manly(?) xbox's.

America is a dying market now, third behind Europe.

See what I did? Don't assume shi*
I don't even get why Europe is second, europe seems to be the most mixed in what genre of games people buy.

Aleusia2969d ago

They play games other than shooters and madden, deal with it.

are you an idiot? comparing sales of a country to a continent?

Persistantthug2969d ago (Edited 2969d ago )

Surely there must be 1......

Are there any FPS games made by Japanese developers?

SephireX2969d ago

Europe is more cultured than the other two markets. We are big into Western and Eastern styled games. Americans tend to be mechanical minded, not abstract minded so many if not most American gamers don't find jrpgs intriguing. Though this game is a shooter and I would put poor sales down to marketing, the game's short lifespan and the fact its a new IP.

Believe it or not guys even RPGs (other than DQ) sell more in the west right now.

Edit: I meant to criticize the buying habits not the games they make, HD games sell very low, very few mange to sell over 500k, and if HD games don’t sell, even less will be made for Japan.

sigh... as i said before games in Japan sell less than in america and europe because GUESS WHAT??

USA 310,548,000
Japan 127,360,000
Europe 731,000,000

USA has 3 times the population and Europe is 7 times bigger so of course there will be more sales in Europe or USA.

rekonizakilla2969d ago

I think coded arms might have been japanese. not sure though

Game-ur2969d ago (Edited 2969d ago )

Even after factoring the population difference, consol game sales are falling rapidly in Japan .

Pretty low sales tbh, wonder how well it will do for the whole week. I'm guessing around 150k in total.

Gago2969d ago

Its japan, shooters dont do well there

and thats day 1 sales plus japan is a smaller market

TheBlackSmoke2969d ago

Well said,people need to think before they comment. Last time I checked Alan wake bombed and all those exclusive 360 rpg's failed to sell also.

Who could fathom that maybe cultural tastes have an influence on what games people buy.

stonecold32969d ago

ps3 did well congs sony and xbox did ok as well

MaideninBlack2969d ago

It won't sell any better in the states either.

Stealth20k2969d ago

The game just wasnt that good and odds are wont sell in america either

enslaved did terrible in america

Neckbear2969d ago

The game IS that good. And eh, about the sales, they ARE rather low, but we also have to see how much more it'll sell after a week.

Then again, it's a Mikami game that isn't Resident Evil, so my guess is than it won't really sell all that much...sadly.

Cloudberry2969d ago

Enslaved also did poor in Japan. : /

Debuted at number 42nd for the PS3 version, & the 360 version is not that fall behind.

I don't know what's the actual sales in Japan for Enslaved, though...

Honky Kong2969d ago


it seems like a good game for what it is but most people will never want to play it over again, times have changed.
