It's a compilation of Orochi Warriors (Dynasty and Samurai Warriors in one game) 1 and 2 with bonus content.

Is it possible to do one of those "at this week rates" predictions here?
I know last year when WiiFit took over 2ndG people said it would never look back, but the Best version has been marginally outselling WiiFit pretty much since it's been out now, so theoretically they could meet again...

As the second week prediction for RE5 turned out pretty well, let's press our luck and see about a third week prediction. :lol RE0-4+CV sold anywhere from 5-15% of the first week total in their third weeks. As going with RE2's second week percentage (18%) worked out very well (RE5 was 19%), let's go with that for the third week, as well. RE2's third week was 9% of the first week, so if RE5 is 10% of the first week total, it should sell ~40K next week on PS360.

Yeah, he was annoying but he was not that far off. Actually on 360 he was closer than some of the people on this thread that ridiculed him.

What does smh mean? And yeah it's just a port of two games that were already on PS2 and 360 IIRC. Also I think Valkyria sold well, it's a niche genre, I think.

I could understand them being disappointed with the game's sales if it was a port to a handheld, but to console? Hopefully they weren't expecting too much.

Called the Musou Orochi Z sales :D

According to Sinobi, the first-week-to-LTD sales history of Gundam, Musou Orochi and Dynasty Warriors on PS2/PS3 from 2007 onwards.:

2007年03月:PS2「無双OROCHI」初週38万本・累計65万本(58%)
2007年03月:PS3「ガンダム無双」初週17万本・累計32万本(53%)
2007年11月:PS3「真・三國無双5」初週18万本・累計37万本(48%)
2008年04月:PS2「無双OROCHI 魔王再臨」初週22万本・累計40万本(55%)
2008年12月:PS3「ガンダム無双2」初週16万本・累計28万本(57%)

FW-LTD is ranges in the 50-55% rate. It seems like Orochi has a good chance of hitting 200K. Good, good.


More Sinobi on the new PS3 best-selling list:

1位:「メタルギアソリッド4」68.6万本
2位:「龍が如く3」43.9万本
3位:「みんなのGOLF 5」41.0万本
4位:「バイオハザード5」38.4万本
5位:「真・三國無双5」37.1万本

1. MGS4 686,000 copies
2. Yakuza 3 439,000 copies
3. Minna no Golf 5 410,000 copies
4. Resident Evil 5 384,000 copies
5. Dynasty Warriors 5 371,000 copies


With the current figures it doesn't seem all that likely that Yakuza 3 will break 500K. It might shade the 500K mark with the current release but it's a stretch. The re-release should do it.

Resident Evil 5 PS3 showing more initial legs than Yakuza 3 with less drop-off for first-to-second week sales figures. I think it has a fantastic chance of hitting 500K at this rate.

Actually, if you combine the Gran Turismo 5 Prologue SKUs together (http://www.japan-gamecharts.com/ps3.php):

8 Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Spec.III
グランツーリスモ5プロローグ SpecIII SCE
SCE RCG 30/10/2008 34.186 11,83% 289.077

12 Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
グランツーリスモ 5 プロローグ SCE
SCE RCG 13/12/2007 108.040 45,28% 238.578

You have 289.077 + 238.578 = 527,655 units.

GT5:P is actually the second best seller after MGS4 now in Japan.



Finally, Demon's Souls dropped from 8,000 to 5,700 but it's definitely breaking 90K. Reaching 100K will take some effort, or a best of re-release.

PS3 hardware not doing too good, despite the bump from all the software.

Code:

Hardware | This Week | Last Week |   YTD   |    LTD   
PS3      |    28,000 |    39,835 | 299,836 |  2,922,264
360      |     7,400 |    14,994 | 133,261 |    963,801


PS3 needs ~78,000 to hit 3 million (3 weeks at this rate:28000/week)
360 needs ~36,000 to hit 1 million (5 weeks at this rate: 7400/wk)

I think it's closer than it looks, because the PS3 is still enjoying a hardware bump from Orochi, RE5 and Yakuza. 360's bump seems over. When it returns to normal PS3 may sell at the ~14,000/week rate again, so there's a chance that the 360 will reach the 1 million mark quicker.

The only difference maker due out soon would be the FFXIII demo on April 16 2009. That's due EXACTLY four weeks from now and that might push one before the other.


I still think 360 has done a fantastic job. This is a situation where congratulations are due in short succession.

I read this as "The Week of the PS3". Made me chuckle.

Is it just me or is the board snot slow right now?

01. [PS3] Musou Orochi Z (Koei) - 104,000 / NEW
Really nice for a port, its a bigger start than if you combine both orochi PSP ports starts (~93k). I'm not going to doubt Koei will make Orochi 3 sooner or later but I wonder on what platforms it will be released and when exactly on them. Took them 2 years to bring the first two to PS2/360/PSP/PS3.

04. [PSP] Shin Sangoku Musou: Multi Raid (Koei) - 32,000 / 328,000
Good legs but it doesn't seem to be catching on with time, it started big and its dying slowly like many Musou games. Guess its not replacement for Monster Hunter but no doubt at all Koei will expand on this, be it Multi Raid G, Multi Raid 2, Multi Raid 2 G or all three.

08. [PSP] Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, PSP the Best (Capcom) - 22,000 / 496,000
MHP2G + MHP2G The Best! = ~2,948,000

Three million in three weeks. I doubt anyone anywhere could have seen rehashing and porting Monster Hunter PS2 games to PSP would have led to near 6m sales overall and 3m for a single expansion.

09. [NDS] 7th Dragon (Sega) - 20,000 / 102,000
Its really matching Etrian Odyssey 2 (86k -> 23k for a 108k total). Bring it already Sega :/

11. [NDS] Annie no Atelier: Sera Shima no Renkijutsushi (Gust) - 15,000 / NEW
The first DS Atelier (Lise) did 22k first weeks which was near Iris 2 and 3 numbers too. Bit of decline but even with the limited budget Gust manages, this one has to be even more limited.

__. [WII] Phantom Brave Wii (Nippon Ichi Software) - 2,300 / NEW
Pff, keep the ports to handhelds signal. All three Disgaea ports (PSP, PSP The Best and DS) started way bigger (22k, 17k and 15k) and before you say Disgaea is bigger than Phantom Brave, see this: http://garaph.info/softwareindividual.php?gameid=1787
Phantom Brave outsold Disgaea on PS2 and did just 2000 units less than Disgaea 2.

DSi 34000
PSP 45000
Clash of the handhelds next week!
DSi gets three new colors on the 20th and PSP gets two more on the 19th.

I like how the PS3 outselling the Wii on certain weeks is now (for how long, I'm not sure) considered fairly normal activity. I've liked the PS3 much more than the Wii for the last few months, so this is nice to see.

Well deserved Biohazard 5 sales. Biohazard will never return to the immediate million selling status of the PSone days, but Biohazard 4 proved that being creative with the platforms and releasing cheaper editions can help you get back to selling a million. Aside from MGS, I think Biohazard may be the biggest-selling non-FF/DQ classic franchise in a really long time. Certainly it's bigger than Tales and Musou at this point.

Well, I'm sure the constant releases of Tales and Musou games did a good job of that. People have been looking forward to RE5 for years, so there's been plenty of time to build hype.

I'm always amazed at how dedicated the Musou fanbase is though. I mean, despite more or less releasing the same game over and over again with some minor improvements with each one, the sales numbers are pretty consistent.
