Amazing numbers for RE6, Vita back to sub 10k numbers, also Ys, Earth Defense Force and Nubunaga dropped quite hard.

Yep, brand recognition still matters. Amazing that the 3DS still outsold the competition considering the software charts this week. o_O

And apparently people still have 360s in Japan? Shocking!

Predicted 666'666 for RE6, would have been pretty accurate if it were for first week and not 3 weeks :/

06./03. [3DS] Style Savvy: Trendsetters <ETC> (Nintendo) {2012.09.27} (¥4.800) - 34.288 / 100.196 (-48%)

That's pretty good as far as legs go, right?

So RE6 on PS3 almost doubles on the RE5 PS3 opening, but on the 360 sales have dropped to about 1/3 of RE5 360's opening week. It's going to be really, really hard for MS to have any worthwhile presence in Japan in the future imo. They were making some progress a few years back, but they've basically flushed it all away. I really don't envision the next MS console even being marketed much in Japan at all.

It's in the 6-8k range. Vita is stable.

Edit: Being serious, the lowest Vita range was like 6xxx.

Will be interesting to see what legs RE6 has, though. Is the review score on 4Gamer from a review aggregate, from user reviews, or the 4Gamer review? (assuming 4Gamer does reviews)

It will most likely have horrible legs, but it doesn't matter at this point.

Yeah, pretty much. I think at this point, nearly everyone who wanted a PS3 at some point already has one.

And the gap gets bigger and bigger and bigger. At least it scrapped through to a million this week.

11./15. [3DS] Tousouchuu: Shijou Saikyou no Hunter-Tachi Kara Nigekire! <ACT> (Bandai Namco Games) {2012.07.05} (¥5.040) - 11.385 / 171.912 (+26%)

I'm actually curious now, can someone post a comparison of major multiplatform PS360 games which had simultaneous releases in the last 4-5 years? Major being say... games where it sold over 200k on at least one platform. Thanks. :)

They are user reviews. I dont think they mean that much. RE6 for Xbox 360 is currently at 10 out of 100 in review score for example.

Vita did actually do sub 6k one week though that may have been famitsu numbers

Not really. There have been several resident evil titles released on the PS3 at this point most RE fans own the console. Anyway impressive RE6 sales, much deserved. I expect it to have poor legs though.

Will MS ever invest in an actual Japanese gaming studio? Because a regular influx of Japanese games is the only thing that can ever reverse their fortunes.

Wow at RE6. And to think, all this time we thought it was Japanese gamers enamored with the old tank controls.

A quick check of garaph reveals it's close to it, yeah. Here are the lower numbers

Media Create:
6,340
6,347
6,675
7,551

Famitsu:
5,849
5,879
6,089
6,413

All of them were in May, though Famitsu had the Vita at 8.1k (or there abouts) for a couple of weeks in mid-April.

Don't see a reason why they would exhaust the same level of effort into Japan going forward as they did this generation. They worked hard to secure japanese support this gen and with their sales success WW over previous gen, they're guaranteed Japanese support on western audience games.

Next gen their goal should be focus on keeping the US in control while making more headway into mainland Europe.

If at the beginning of this gen it would be clear that western devs would be dominating the scene MS likely wouldn't have invested the time and money they did into Japan to secure developer support. However, they went with the safe bet to secure support.

Were they really making all that much progress? They paid for a ton of exclusive JRPGs and it didn't seem to help all that much at all.

I think MS feels they would always be second or third fiddle in Japan no matter how much they spend so therefore it's not worth the investment. And personally, I think their assessment is probably correct. Sony and Nintendo would both have to completely implode in order for Durango to have any chance to truly succeed there.

Does anyone have a plan for Durango that would have a realistic, actual chance for success in Japan?

Speaking of investing in Japanese studios, whatever happened to Crimson Dragon? A few months back it was delayed a week before it was due to be released on XBLA. The developers said it was not a development issue, but a business decision, and that more details would be announced later. And we've heard nothing. Months have gone by, not a word, and MS wasn't even at TGS this year. Canned?

Well, since Operation ShitCity sold pretty damn well too I can't say I'm surprised by those RE6 numbers. Still very impressive though.
