Seems Mario Cart might actually be moving some units. Look at how low Wii Sports is this week. Less than 15,000. People must be buying something for their brand new Wii. (unless it's all Wii Fit of course).

EDIT: Really sorry to double post. Ususaly the first page of this thread moves so quickly there would be a post in between.

They're actually all at the same ¥2100 pricepoint now.

Previously, both Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice were released at the full price of ¥4800. Then Phoenix Wright was released under the Best Price label at about ¥3000. Justice for All and Trials and Tribulations were released straight onto the Best Price ¥3000 lineup.

Now, all four games are ¥2100 under the NEW Best Price lineup. Apollo Justice was never released in the Best Price lineup (¥3000), and went straight to NEW Best Price. Given that its sales were so much bigger than the previous releases, I guess Capcom saw too small a market for Apollo Justice at ¥3000. They didn't add in the English language version like I was hoping they would, either. :(

Oh, I was mistaken. Doesn't matter to me though. I bought the Japanese one when it came out and had my brother send me the English version when that came out.

I hope the next game is bilingual again. Then again I was really surprised that any of the games were bilingual to begin with. Who was this option added for? Just us Gaijin?

Good question. They use the term 海外版 (kaigaiban - overseas edition) as an advertisement for the game, even on the boxarts as a means of differentiating the games from the GBA versions.

2 360 shooters and only 1 ps3 game! i guess its all the american people in japan with 360s that are buying things like RB6:Vegas
From the Famitsu numbers, it looks like MHP2G will hit 2 million in 2-6 weeks (i.e. well before the mid-year Top 100 cutoff for Famitsu). Nice. :)

@ Vinnk

I did the same thing with last week's thread. They certainly are slowing down as of late.

I don't know why you threw Wii Fit in there.

Also, schuelma is correct. Mario Kart both historically sells better than Smash Bros., and it is showing stronger signs of long legs than Brawl did. LTD totals remain to be seen, but Mario Kart is definitely looking to get to its whatever LTD over a much longer period than Brawl will take. I have no idea why you persist in this dead-horse beating match.

Edit:
In other words, I don't think this is as useful an argument to run with as the "Debateth Closeth" thing.

Of course that might not be waht happens at all, either way I will be interested to see.

donny: huh? i was confirming his assertions...not sure what you're on about. i included wiifit because it and the other two would seem to be the ones up for debate regarding their legs. wiifit is the best example of what we all consider to be legs, and acts as a guide marker.

castle: no. refer to the end of the last thread (but don't bump it plz!)





edit:
for the damn record, i always agreed with him about MK having legs, but not because some premonition or "feeling" told us so, but because the logic pans out over time. please just enjoy the not-so-cleverly-titled charts and refer to the last thread for closure on the topic. if the titles of the charts hurt anybody's feelings (rather than being acknowledged as an inside-joke among fellow MC'ers) i'd be happy to ignore those people.

0. make sure you insert the chart on the page rather than on its own sheet
1. right-click, [copy]
2. open paint
3. [paste]
4. save
5. upload to image site.

You made a chart. About the disagreement in the last thread. That spat had an end before this thread.

Using Wii Fit as a guide marker for legs is like using Wii Sports, Wii Play, or Pokemon Red/Green/Blue for a guide marker. The comparison was between Mario Kart and Brawl. You might be trying to make an assumption based on his use of the term "Über," but throwing Wii Fit in as a measuring stick isn't exactly related to the previous discussion.

Try "Record a new macro." You should be able to at least get the image into the copy buffer with a button combo. You may still have to manually paste it into an image program from there, though.

I ask because in one of my excel docs, I have something like 30 different charts in their own individual sheet tabs. It would be a lot easier to hit a macro that exports everything automatically to gifs or something. I've seen a few export macros on Google but the ones I've tried don't seem to work.

You could make a macro that moved to the next sheet and copied that graph to the buffer with a button press. Unless you figured out how to tie that in with a picture program, though, you'd still have to paste each image manually.

So even if MHP2ndG outsells WiiFits LTD in the next couple weeks, WiiFit may come back due to long legs? Interesting...
