Just as shinobi said. :D

RG>MK>RGG but RG and MK are close. I was wondering which one would sell more after seeing their first day sales.

Edit: Can't wait for hardware sales.

Wow, Rogue Galaxy did outsell MK. Pretty damn impressive. Was expecting to see MK sell more, though but still good.

And LOL, tomagachi's back.

325k on its first week, this is its 3rd week.

As noted in the other thread, Shinobi said DS moved about 300k units this week :D

Also, RE4 is still selling strong. Guess the port actually worked for Japan, at least.

Not bad, but, Monster Hunter PSP is doing even better! Good for Capcom. :)

Awesome for Rogue Galaxy too. Anyone have any media for this? I forgot where I saw stuff on it.

How is MHPSP doing better?
Considering the installed userbase, it's doing much better. Even the second week sales drop off was much smaller. /end damage control :)

No, 360 just bombed. :lol

Besides it says 360 sold 43k, there is no way any 360 game sold more than 43k.

Guys, I think the 360 has already been kicked enough times while it was down!

I think you killed it. Its carcass is rotting

It is? I skipped on the PS2 version for the PSP one. Now I need to convince my friend to get it for wifi larks.
Yes, it is. PR:

Last up is Monster Hunter Freedom, which is based on Japan-only PS2 title Monster Hunter G. You can expect brand new quests and features, including multiplayer missions for up to four players. These will allow you to build up your character and create new weapons by defeating specific monsters or collecting items.


Other new features include an area called Felyne Kitchen, where you can train Felynes to cook for you. As their kitchen skills improve, so do the meals they prepare, and the more your statistics increase. However, if you aren't happy with their work you can just fire them and hire new ones.

Plus you can now visit The Farm - a new area where you can collect rare mushrooms, mine for ore, catch insects and play mini games, obtaining essential items in the process. There's nothing in the press release about Rebecca Loos and pigs though, sadly.

MHF will also feature a new mode called Treasure Hunter, which offers a series of co-operative missions for two players. All the items you obtain in this mode can be kept and used in the single player game.

If true about the 300k, holy fuck that's a lotta systems moved. Did GBA and PS2 ever have that kind of numbers in a week outside of launch periods? I recall PS2 going up to 200k+ a few years ago, but this is nuts.

And so is Monster Hunter PSP...
True, but it makes no sense to say RE4 isn't doing better. A game that sells that amount of copies it does is a game that sells the amount of copies it does. Console -> console ports normally have way less potential than special handheld ports, as well.

Good to see another strong console game, and some reasonably strong second week sales for Biohazard 4. Strangely low Mario Kart numbers, but it should keep selling strongly for another 3 weeks or so.

Christmas is to Easter as Mario Kart is to PGR3.
