They didn't have anymore copies to sell I thought?
If that's the case then they better get some damn games on the shelves.

If Murasama is simply falling off the charts in such a pathetic week then this is a tragedy.

It looks like the Valkyria anime is really helping out the game.
I was kinda under the impression that it was the demo-bump that was helping Valkyria. And with the number 10 game selling a mere 9,000 copies, apparently it's not helping too much.

The game had a near 90% sell through. They better address this quick. Nobody wants another 7th Dragon hoopla.

Aside from the PS3 hardware, pretty low week.

Taiko passes DQ:S in Famitsu to become the Wii's #1 3rd party game.
Interesting. Probably a very low chance it'll pass MGS to become the best selling third party game this gen, right?

Is SE having a private show this year? If so, shouldn't that be coming up soon? It seems like they haven't got nearly enough games in development right now for how much they usually do.

Yikes, those are some impressive PS3 numbers. I can only imagine the numbers that the actual game'll do.

So apparently ACC sold over 300k? ;O

That's like... free money for SE @@
Looks like everyone will be happy,SE with the ACC sales, Sony with the PS3 sales, and PS3 owners with the demo.

Again nearly 90% sell through during its first week. There was even an article about how Marvelous is trying to get copies out there to meet demand.

Yes, it's really gonna suck when they realize that the only thing their PS3 will be able to play is the FFXIII demo.

Hmm, you may have a point there. I went digging to see what they had. I may have missed some so if anyone sees something missing feel free to correct me.

I assume that those who purchased the movie/demo are RPG fans, and that's not a genre that's well represented on any system right now (except maybe the Xbox 360)

Surely you missed their lineup of PS3 games including Crystal Defenders and the release of Quantum of Solace in Japan.
:lol

Rumors of the next Front Mission being exclusive to the 360 make it all the more baffling. Aside from their support of the portables and their decision to make FFXIII multiplatform, it seems like SE has done nothing but make mistakes this generation.

Maybe SE will look at the sales and be like, hey maybe we should put some actual games on this fucking system.
Wada : never * laugh *

I think their strategy toward the PS3 will not change because of this , just see Front Mission , and If they don't want their games to sell in japan ..it's their decisions and loss , and other smaller JRPG developers already on the move to take advantage of PS3 now .

do you think Square Enix didn't saw the sales of many games lately on PS3 ? ( and we still don't know PS3 performance with famous JRPG IP ) they are no blind or stupid , they know all about it , but they just in good relationship with another company that can help them in the NA market .

also secured money in the pocket & marketing help > possibilities for good sales .

Dude, it's Japan. They simply sell the console back when they're finished. It's happened with a bunch of other titles already, for 360 notably.

You are totally missing his point.
Square Enix knows they can sell more on PS3, in Japan, at least. But they CHOOSE to go the other way. They have a plan and they're sticking to it.

A portion of these are probably people who are planning to buy a PS3 for FFXIII, and then sell it. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the year shakes out, and then how things shake out with the FFXIII launch next year. Gran Turismo will be interesting - it definitely has some hardcore fans, but I have no idea how the God of War userbase is in Japan.

Sounds like Wada is a great businessman.
