I was expecting a bit more from this game/remake.. oh well, soon you will be mine!
 
What I'm waiting to see is if Super Mario 64 DS makes the top 100. It made the mid-year Top 100 in 2005, 2006, and 2007. However, in the back half of last year it only sold 27K, so I think it will have finally sputtered out. (Until it shows up in the 2008 Top 500)

Sony must find a way to get Monster Hunter on PS3 pronto, it saved the PSP in Japan.
Amazing how the 2nd best-selling PSP after 2G is the original MHP2.:lol

Jeez, there's only one 360 game listed? :\

Dominated by Nintendo, of course, though I suppose 10 PS3 games and 19 PSP games on the chart isn't TOO bad.

Etrian Odyssey II, Rune Factory 2, and Winning Eleven Wii all made substantial gains under the radar. Nice!

And actually, if you count the first Monster Hunter Portable and its budget rerelease as one total, it becomes #3. Otherwise it comes in #4 behind Crisis Core.

I think he just meant on the 2008 Top 100 Half-Year chart.
 
96. [PSP] Monster Hunter Portable 2nd PSP The Best (Capcom) - 69,099 / 142,417
Either this is a mistranslation, or it was mistranslated previously. I know I hadn't seen a MHP2 rerelease make the list before, so I went to see if I'd missed it in the 2007 Top 500. In that place, with the anticipated 73,318 sales, was Monster Hunter Portable (BEST Reprint).

Was there ever a Sales-Age celebration of the DS passing the PS2? :O
For months prior we'd been watching as they got closer and calculated how many weeks it would be until DS passed PS2... then DS slowed down from "insane" to "great" and it took a couple months longer than I thought it would.

That adds up to 102, and I already totaled it anyway. ;)

Bah, not sure how that happened. I guess it is too early to attempt to do simple math.

Thanks for the corrected totals. They weren't there when I first made my pitiful attempt to add everything up.

Mario Galaxy is going to reach 1 million, yay.
Actually, this makes me less sure of that. I might have missed some appearances in more recent monthly charts or something, but the last I've got of it in Garaph is 893,713 as of late March. It's at 912,746 as of this chart, so an additional 19,033 over 12 weeks for an average of 1,586 per week. Maintaining that rate it'd be more than a year away.

I thought SMG would pass up SM64DS since it started stronger, but it doesn't seem to have the same legs. At this point in its life, SM64DS was selling twice as well.

A few things from the list:

- We get confirmation that DMC4 passed 300k.
- A lot of sports games had legs (unsurprisingly I suppose).
- COD4 on the PS3 either broke 100k (if its December sales aren't included in that 90k) or will break 100k in the future. Pretty impressive for a Western game that debuted at under 25k (at least on the Famitsu charts). It may end up surpassing Disgaea 3 LTD.

Based on its placement in the list that looks like only for this year. So adding in its first week number we know from last year's Top 500, it should be up to about 110K.

55. [PSP] Super Robot Wars Alpha Portable (Bandai Namco) - 115,201

This is inaccurate. The game is SRWA just A. It's not Alpha. That's a different game. :)
 
Just a few typos and such I'm running across while matching them up with known games.
01. [PSP] Monster Hunter Portable 2nd (Capcom) - 2,300,505
Tiny difference and pretty obvious in context, but this is G.
81. [PSP] Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Bandai Namco) - 81,419
I think this is supposed to be this DS game.
59. [NDS] Mugen no Frontier Super Robot Wars OG Saga (Bandai Namco) - 112,2144
Extra digit somewhere; I'm guessing the doubled 4?
48. [PS2] World Soccer Winning Eleven 8 (Konami) - 127,952 / 672,976
Winning Eleven 2008. Easy mistake, but there actually was a Winning Eleven 8 in 2004.
50. [NDS] Daigasso! Band Brothers (Nintendo) - 122,183
Similar to the missing G, this one is DX?

WTF at New Super Mario Bros. at 5.2 millions.

Why Nintendo isn't developing a new 2D Mario for the DS? Why damn it?

Anyway, what really scares me is that Nintendo has sold more then 10 millions games, without a single new DS game. And we all know that DS games were selling like crazy in past 2-3 years. Shit: they're only Wii and DS games that came out in 2005/2006. In other words, about the DS, they're living with old stuff. Crazy.

It didn't even sell 66K this year? Ughh...

Anyone know how it sold during the two weeks before 2008 when it was released? I thought it would have some legs with the JPN audience, being made by the Gooch and music by Uematsu...

These are way too low for my taste. How did EO1 and Disgaea 1/2 perform?

If Nintendo developed quick* sequels to every multimillion seller they have... from all the sequels they'd be working on we'd probably not have worked our way to the Pikmins of new IP, let alone Captain Rainbow.

*quicker than 4 years, I guess

A game in a front-loaded genre, on a console as unsuccessful as X360, selling to more than 10% of the userbase in year two... dreaming, man.

It sold 91K in 2007 and was up to 104K by February. By now it might have overtaken the #2 X360 spot from DOA4.

After the comments I've read on gaf, I would belive this game deserved better.

considering the lack of jrpgs on the PS3, it makes sense that people would build this up to be something more amazing then it actually is. Reminds me of Tales of Symphonia for GCN.

Damn, when you actually look at it, Famitsu is a pretty bad magazine. All the exclusive info is nice, but when you actually look at reviews and ratings, it's awful :lol

COD4 also has a new Game of the Year version out in Japan that should boost sales a bit.
