Tecmo Keoi has reported a 10.7% increase in sales over last year due to “strong sales ” of Ninja Gaiden III, Warriors Orochi 3 (Musou Orochi 2), Sengoku Musou 3 Empires and Winning Post 7 2012.
Ninja Gaiden 3? Strong sales?? >.> <.<
ikr, I thought April Fools already passed.
... by far the worst Ninja Gaiden in the series, and yet it sells well!?
This is really bad. If it sells this well there is no need for them to up the difficulty to match the earlier games. Really sad :/
@ Yi-Long Ninja Gaiden 3 is a good game!
dont worry Yi-Long it didnt sell well at all . NG1&2 and were doing far better , with a single platform . It should sell lower , but that's still a pathetic performance with both ps2 and 360 platforms . And the game is mediocre stuff we already were forgetting
NG3 only shipped 630k copies it doesn't mean they sold that much. So I doubt NG3 sales is actually what boost tecmo koei's earning.
Shipping units is what brings money to the publisher, not the actual sales.
It sold 30K in Japan and 90K in the US in its first month. HOW THE HELL did it reach 630K worldwide?
I can't believe this POS sold well its the worst Ninja Gaiden game ever.
Well I guess shipping 630,000 copies is strong sales to them.
only when they are doing damage control . Previous games easily went over a million or two
When Ninja Gaiden 3 is the bright spot in your earnings... :sigh: I hear a train acomin
i think they mistakenly added an extra zero in the figures. ninja gaiden 3 is the worse in the series, heck it shouldn't even be called ninja gaiden. it should be called dynasty ninja warrior!
People cry and moan about CoD but this is the true tragedy of gaming right here.
surprising..... i was hoping that the game wasnt as bad as everyone made it out to be. i was thinking it was just another case of whiny fan boys pissed over little changes like quicktime events and Itagaki leaving.......then i played the demo.... this game is a turd and does not do the franchise justice. now we need another reboot :/
Even though vgchartz may not be completely reliable, it can help you get a general idea of teh situation so I will use it. According to VGchartz NG3 sold only 210,000 COMBINED FOR XBOX360 and PS3! How is that strong!???
After Operation Raccoon City hit 2 million, the sky is the limit now...... Someone make good Tenchu for PS3 already or at least show new gameplay of Devil's Third to put this game out of it's misery.....
WTF? I like NG series,but this game crap/boring/easy.
The only strong sales I see here is from One Piece. I really HIGHLY doubt this has anything to do with NG3.
NG3 is the best 3D Ninja Gaiden game so of course it is going to sell well.
