SMG dropped a bit further than I expected. HUGE debut for the PS3 - isn't this the largest yet? And is that AC6 down there? First time a 360 title hasn't dropped out of the top 30 after one week, IIRC.

People seem more interested in Mario Party then in Galaxy....

Ace Combat 6 fell nearly off the charts, just like I said last week. Next week it will be gone and you will never see it again.

Hmm.... interesting looking at the 360 version and PS3 versions of Musou 5.... The 360 version may struggle to chart next week while Ratchet's sales make me upset inside. Japan ignore another great game... FTL.

Overall, very interesting Media Create. Will be more interesting tomorrow with hardware.

Why do Japanese developers support the 360 again?
You might have noticed that the 360 version outsold Ratchet and Clank.

Also, you may notice the game do better on the 360 than the PS3 in America.

Dang, Ratchet

I kept hearing that series was popular in Japan or something
Only "Sony fanboys of the week" who wandered into Media Create threads proclaiming that salvation was just around the corner with the release of (Gundam Musou, Virtua Fighter 5, Mina no Golf 5, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Lair, Heavenly Sword, Ratchet and Clank Future, Time Crisis 4, Metal Gear Solid 4, Devil May Cry 4) actually thought R&C would sell.

Franchises are seeing at least a 50% decline from PS2 to PS3, and Ratchet didn't sell worth shit on the PS2.

Does anyone have a picture of the Japanese Ratchet and Clank cover? I've really liked the crazy look of the previous ones.

Also obligatory "disastrous sales for Super Mario Galaxy" comment.

This is going to get ignored with all the "bigger" news, but talk about a platformer underperforming..That's an awul number.

Keep in mind, Musou would have been #1 this week over Mario Party if it was released on the same day. Musou only had 1 day of sales, so the normal weekend number would've been about 250k-300k

HomerSimpson-Man said:
Why not?

That's basically 200,000+ in sales for an otherwise 180,000+ sales. With Musou, I don't think Koei would have much trouble doing multiplaform between PS3 and X360 anyway.
Well, the idea is that those 22k people would've just bought the PS3 version instead. So they'd end up at the same total without the extra porting costs.

Then again, US will make it worth it...unless it bombs like Gundam Musou.

Does R&C usually sell in Japan?

Disappointed in those numbers for Galaxy, it could be a long road reaching a million in Japan. Is it ahead or behind Zelda: TP at this point relatively?

Wasn't a R&C game a JPN PS2 pack-in at one point? I thought Ratchet did pretty damn well for itself in Japan, and one of the few western franchises that sold well there.

do ratchet games really do that well in Japan? I thought 13k is pretty good for a first week
hahahaha yeah 13k is a real good first week when first weeks are 25%-50% of lifetime sales and you need to sell half a million copies or more to break even.

This comparison is ridiculous.

How many Wii owners to-date? How many DS owners to-date?
yah just like all the wii fanboys saying "dynasty warriors sells 200k on ps3, but 900k on ps2" how many ps2s were there when 5 came out? and the holidays are comin up.

Yeah, well, there are 1.3mil PS3 owners in Japan yet only 12,000 buy Ratchet & Clank.... What the fuck is that?

Japan suck with shit like that.
