Okay, FFIII is having shortages.....Why are all the other DS games going down?

Edit: And by all others I really meant just a couple. Yes....yes I meant that all along and I did read the entire list before posting the first time. You can be sure of that.

Now Compare:

1. Phantasy Star Universe 137,000
2. New Super Mario Bros. 56,000
3. GuitarFreaks & DrumMania 25,000
4. Brain Training 2 24,000

7. Final Fantasy III 20,000
8. Rune Factory 18,000
9. God Industry ?? 17,000
10. EVE New Generation 15,000

Not bad IMO for only receiving 1/300th of Japanse sales estimates.

So the whole initial shipment of FF3 (well 99%) has sold out? Anybody have any idea how long DS games take to produce? Square Enix was stupid not to have more ready for the Black DS launch.

Mario 3 on 3 keeps its legs. It'll probably break 500k easy.

I guess it won't come close to the first in sales.
I wouldn't rule it out yet. The holiday could be kind to it.

Hmm... but it's so inconsistent, how can you glean anything from it? hard to find titles (FFIII) were hugely underepresented in the Comgnet stores sampled, while PSU was (possibly) over represented by these same stores.

Just seems too difficult to consistently draw any conclusions - at least based on this little bit of data.

Observations:
For the NDS multiply by ~750
For PS2 multiply by ~250

Let's see how this works in the future...

Something tells me that there has been a flurry of panicked phone calls from SE to Nintendo about fabbing more of those FFIII carts this week.

Whether it was SE under-ordering or manufacturing shortages, nobody wins when a hot game isn't available. Hopefully they can replenish the channel before all the kids beat it and sell it used.

My aunt & uncle run a Mom & Pop store, "The Gamecube Hut", and sold 80k WiiU within minutes of opening.
