Samurai Warriors (627k)
Love and Berry DS (425k)
Kingdom Hearts (411k)

I see a few other Musou games that I can't tell if they count or not--Warriors Orochi, One Piece Musou, Fist of the North Star Musou.

So I would say that if you remove ambiguous cases, this is the third-best new IP since the beginning of the PS2.

Edit: Worth noting; this data is all Famitsu, the OP number is Media-Create

Incredible opening for Dragon's Dogma! I'm curious to know if it'll be a frontloaded title or if it will have "legs". And incredible hold for Fire Emblem too :D

Good opening for Mario Tennis, I wonder how high it will go.

Edit: Capcom is the king of new IP launches, it's pretty impressive.

Fire Emblem still clinging on. The reveival (sales wise) of the freanchise is truly upon us. I can't wait for multiple FE entries to be announced for the 3DS in the near future.

Now, if it would come to EU land, that would be great.

Very, very good for DD. I'd expected sub-250k combined, so to come in at over 300k on a single platform is far better than I thought.

What was the marketing like in Japan?

EDIT:

And FE is going to break 400k next week by the looks of it. I wonder if 500k is achievable by the end of the year?

At least Dragon's Dogma sold well in one territory. Happy to see it do well, as the game looks cool but I just don't have any time for it yet. Once my Diablo 3 addiction cools off I'll pick it up.

Gonna be awhile. I doubt that B2/W2 will help sales much if at all but it might see a nice boost with Terry's Wonderland and whatever they do with NSMB 2.

User response seems fairly favorable at this point, so it'll be interesting to see where lifetime sales end up -- the metric that ultimately matters. It does have a good start.

One thing that's still sticking in my head: "we got 500K preorders in Japan for the game woohoo!" was something Capcom-Unity announced. Numbers, adding up the 360 version even, comes nowhere near that. If this number is to be believed it also means max. 66% of preorders were picked up, likely less because not everyone that purchases a game preorders. Furthermore, what if shipment is less than 500K (as in, there's more than 67% salethrough mentioned when Media Create updates their site tomorrow)? If it's not a common practice to purposely short shipments they'd have been outright lying.

As i said in the last thread PS3 HW this week is rather surprising. DD has opened with very impressive numbers and is a new IP and yet it seemingly had no impact on HW whatsoever.

Hell it actually bumped the 360 as much as the PS3 (in whole numbers not percentages).

Oh, didn't know that. So the demo only becomes playable later on?

One thing that's still sticking in my head: "we got 500K preorders in Japan for the game woohoo!" was something Capcom-Unity announced. Numbers, adding up the 360 version even, comes nowhere near that. If this number is to be believed it also means max. 66% of preorders were picked up, likely less because not everyone that purchases a game preorders. Furthermore, what if shipment is less than 500K (as in, there's more than 67% salethrough mentioned when Media Create updates their site tomorrow)? If it's not a common practice to purposely short shipments they'd have been outright lying.

It's the preorder from seller. Not the customer.

Without the demo Dragon's Dogma would have sold exactly the same. No one buys a game for a demo that it can't be downloaded until 3 months later (PS3 version).

Hell it actually bumped the 360 as much as the PS3 (in whole numbers not percentages).

It did have some affect; end of the day hardware is expensive, this seems to be a game PS3 owners were after.

Its not like the game meant people thought - "I'll buy PS3 and not Wii/360" - as in terms of the mass market, PS3 is the only option.

360 has such a small userbase that theres a lot of people who might just take a new release to try out a new system.

Some good Software numbers but rather shitty hardware numbers.

Edit: Worth noting; this data is all Famitsu, the OP number is Media-Create

Amazing job Capcom and DD!

And 3D Land is doing great, who would've known it would be the one with the most impressive legs?

Well that's because 3d Land is bundled.

Great week overall. Sort of a low opening for Mario Tennis, but it should have great legs.
