Power Pro console versions are apparently dying. PS2 started with a higher userbase for it, though.
I notice that the difference between the PS2 and Wii versions were originally far greater but wouldn't have most Japanese gamers move on by now? I know that this is ironic considering there are two PS2 games in the Top 10 currently but this usually isn't the case.

The PSP sure has made a come back in the last year or so. I'm surprised by the number of PSP games showing up on the chart every week. The chart is actually pretty even across the board and shows that people are buying software for all platforms. That's awesome!

Anyone willing to go back through the "Past Weeks" section to compile an archive which could be linked in to a random post of mine in a past thread? Make a note here and PM me if interested. All help is appreciated.
That sort of thing is absolutely up my alley. I once started such a list with the old ones that were actually put in the sales archive, though I never completed it.

This is something that can still happen with the PS3 too. Don't count it out.

You can do it. I'm pretty sure portables vs everything else make a nice Pac-Man chart this week.

CVX's rant and cherry picking sales figures from sales-tracker to prove a notion of something that all games do -- games will sell a little bit more even when they are not charted when you look at their sales a year later on some famitsu top 300 year selling list.
lol, and Dengeki :lol . They have more inflation than a Pakistani rupee. You're funny CVX.... above 600,000:lol

Anyway, how many copies of RE5 have you bought thus far? Don't commit suicide or anything if RE5 doesn't break 600,000 K? Because I love you. And without you I have nobody to play Outbreak File 3 with ;)

There are plenty of times Dengeki's undercounted sales compared to the other two. I remember many years ago when they committed a sin and undercounted RE0 and REmake. :( :( :(

We'll see what happens at the end of 2009. :D

It's unlikely for RE5 to hit a million without a Wii version, though. Still, RE5 sales are excellent.

I guarantee you RE5 will be above 600K for 2009. Guaranteed.
Isn't it nice if there is an RE5:Shoot till you Sick version for Wii ? That way, RE5 have a shot to reach 1 Million in Japan, especially since there are userbase that like the gun-type game on Wii ?

It would need to be Biohazard 5 Wii Edition.

Dead Rising Wii was somewhat fun to play (inherent with the RE4 viewpoint more than anything), but really needed A LOT of technical work that a developer like TOSE would never give. If Capcom did bring RE5 to Wii, I hope they associate it with RE4 and not DR.

Has Famitsu released a Top 100 or Top 500 of 2008 with sales figures yet?

If not, any idea when that kind of info get released?
I would wait another 2-3 months before this information shows up. I think it's contingent on when Famitsu actually publishes its comprehensive report for the previous year.

Could the story of Resident Evil: Degeneration be made into an RE4-2? It seems workable, as long as it doesn't become a light-gun game.

Yeah, it definitely could have become another game in the series... in the fact I actually wouldn't be surprised if it became a scenario in The Darkside Chronicles. The scenario writer for Degeneration is onboard The Darkside Chronicles.

I'd give it a 50% chance at this point. Who knows where that game can head.

DQVIII ( + best ) sold 3.6 million and Monster Hunter is at ~ 3 million.

With MH3 dated for summer I don't think it will make it.

Yes. I saw the movie a few days ago, and it should be workable (although the fact that Claire are empty handed most of the time might not be interesting to play, just like RE4's president's daughter part of game). Leon's part of RE: D should be interesting, including the final boss in the movie.

donny2112 said:

If you ever have to choose between DR: CTYD or Disaster: Day of Crisis, choose D: DoC first, DR: CTYD later. I enjoyed D: DoC much more than DR: CTYD. I finished D: DoC in 2 days (and have plans to replay it again using the hard mode), and are in the process of finishing DR: CTYD (up to case 3, having difficulty trying to achieve S-rank for the
case 3 mission, the one helping the employee that are stranded in their own shop for 3 days because of some kids barricading his way out)

Oh, just noticed that Mario & Luigi is slightly up from last week.
I think it's passed up the other 2 already.

Anyone knows if Prince of Persia has been released on PS3 so far? I remember that Square Enix was supposed to publish it over there. I'm wondering how it may had done, if it's out.

Technically the MHP2 series already did , MHP2 (1.7 million) + MHP2 G (3 million) + MHP2 G The best (0.5 million) = 5.2 million on the same game with additional content and the re-print version. I'm pretty sure its overall developement cost is still under DQ VIII. It's a bit unfair to compare like this though :lol

With the increase userbase of additional content and reprint version. Monster Hunter 3 G would be something HUGEEEEEEE. And Inafune day dream of pushing this series to the same level with DQ will come true hehehe.

I bet that Musou and RE5 will be enough to keep it at least on par with the Wii another week, unless of course there's some big wii game coming out.

Thanks for posting the PS2 number! 136.3 million through Dec-08 DS should pass up that number in a couple of years.
PS2 could hit 150M eventually if they dropped to 99$. But I'm no longer sure if that'll ever happen now...

It's not surprising if you've been following the franchise. The mainline console games have been seeing a steady decline gameplay wise since Pawapuro 11. This is mainly due to the better developers moving on to either the DS games or the PYS team.

Anyone else notice that this is the week that the sales trackers put out games? Enterbrain published #3, and Dengeki is a school in #11. Media-Create is a laggin'.

If it was going to happen last Christmas or the beginning of this year would have been the time to do it.

I'm not sure what Sony would get out of it now.
