Check out Media Create Sales: Week 36, 2011.
*yawn* Localization, please.
Ok now NAMCO knows that working with playstation in Japan can really be a good business. In fact NAMCO, KONAMI and SQUAREENIX did some pretty good scores with their games on PS3 : Tales of Xilia, MGS 4 or FF XIII were all successful. They really neglected this platform on this generation, but the customers always remained present when exclusives were out on PS3. Now NAMCO must understand that they must develop an international version of their games while developing them for Japan market. A worldwide realease for Xilia would have been the smartest move they have done on this generation.
The smartest move they made was publishing Dark Souls! But they stole that move from Atlus! Namco must have offered From more investment money, which means a better game, which means I'm on board! Imagine what Demon's Souls would have been without that shoestring budget!
well i hope u pre-ordered tales of graces. buy some extra copies and give it to all ur rpg friends while ur at it :D
@DaTruth can't steal something that's not yours
It's game over for Xbox360 japan.
Since when there was a game to over for the 360 In Japan?
There were a few weeks early on when it was hitting 20K a week. Didn't last long but they were there.
Edit: whoops. Misread your post. Carry on.
... yeahhh, I'd say it's some for a localization Bamco! K? K. :)
yiiiikes, *time* Sorry about that.
great job sony. dark souls soon, ni no kuni in november and ff XIII-2 in december
Also Ace combat and idol master.
Call of Duty has a Dub(bed) edition.
Don't think Namco didn't get rich selling their stuff on the 360, even with poor sales. You know Microsoft paid buku bucks to them for that to take place. Now that Microsoft is receiving zero benefit from giving all of that money to Namco, they stopped doing so, and so Namco is making money the old fashion way. I'm reading all of these comments like "Namco is finally learning" as if they are repenting from some evil or something. Please. It's all about the money. If Microsoft gave them money right now, Xillia wouldn't be on the PS3. I'm pleased that we're seeing the Japanese companies go back to their roots (as a JRPG fan, and Sony fan, this gen has been a pity) but seriously...it's only because Microsoft is bailing out for this gen over there. 12
Yeash i agree. i think the only real reason i ever bought a 360 was because there were rpgs on the system but now that the ps3 has rpgs(a decent ammount) the 360 looks a little dry for them
Well played Sony... :D
over 500k units the first week is awesome. Now imagine how many more units would be sold if it was localized.
honestly, sadly probably not as much
Yea, Tales isn't that huge of a franchise in the US. Wish it was though, been a Tales fan since the SNES days.
Wow those are good numbers! well done Namco. I really hope this will come out in the states. That would be stupendous.
Bamco take my cold hard earned cash and bring this baby to the English speaking market!
Lol yea pretty much same here xD
