Things seem to have finally slowed down this week... Brain Training DS and Yawaraka Atama Juku both see a big drop.

Do people ever stop buying Super Mario Bros?

Surprising Tamagotchi is still up there!

Wow that's pretty bad. Why did Capcom even bother at all.
i dont think any viewtiful joe game received great sales numbers. i'm glad capcom are making more VJ games but it's a shame not many people are buying them

IIRC the first one on GC sold more than 100K copies in Japan. Anything after that was just bomba though.

Come on, there has to be SOME big game hitting PSP in the next few months, right? The Rockman remakes should do ok.
I'll take that bet and predict they don't do well at all (ie 200k before the end of the year)

200K? Even the giant WE series is just crawling its way through to that mark. You have most likely overestimated the Rockman series here...

The recent "milking of Rockman" thread shows 24 million games sold with 100 Rockman titles, that's only an average of 24,000 copies per title. That average is influenced by the EXE series as well, so if you exclude EXE, the average is even lower.

The WE9 numbers are quite shocking considering how well WE usually does in Japan. I wonder if the same thing is going to happen in Europe. WE is probably the most anticipated title in the UK and a lot of european countries along with Fifa, so technically it should sell well, but if WE didnt do as well as it should in japan, then maybe the same thing will happen in EU as well

Nope. Remember Europe is Sonyland.

Trends for PSP in Japan cannot be compared to other areas of the world. PSP is turning into a situation somewhat similar to the SEGA Master Systems (IIRC), where it sold like crap in Japan compare to SNES, but in the US it sold very well.

also note that we have a fairly decent gundam game on the PSP, and i've not seen that make a splash on the charts either
How's the Gundam game by the way? Impressions? Do we have any screenshots online? I have seen zero screenshots for the game for some reason.

You're thinking Mega Drive/Genesis, not Master System. And yeah, it could very well work out that way. I'd put N64 in a similar category as well.

MsterSystem bigger in Europe for a long time?

I really doubt it. Do you have figures or something or are you only relating that UK = Europe?

I just find it odd because atleast here in Sweden the NES dominated the Master System as long as I remember.

Well, the vast majority of Master System games (ports, mostly) released after the flood of first party titles were from British developers, and only ever released in PAL territories.
