Very surprised about Everyone's General Knowledge Training TV. It was heavily advertised both on TV and in the shops. I thought this one would be flying off the shelves. It will probably have quite long legs, but not a very good start.

Soma Bringer is doing ok. Not fantastic but I think the title will turn a nice profit. I hope it gets released outside Japan.

And hate me all you want, but go Wii Fit!

You really think people aren't anticipating MGS4? I have 4 Japanese friends and they are all hyped about MGS4. They tell me that there are lots of people who are waiting for MGS4 just to buy a PS3. I can only go by what I hear and MGS4 sounds like it will make waves when it hits.

You know, a lot of videogame boxarts serve as good artworks, but they're not very good as boxart. The MP3 one is an example.

(Of course, you have those boxarts which are neither, like the NA one...)

MGS never made much of a wave in Japan. not even on PS2.

It will be a hit. Just like the previous game were. However, just like the previous games, it will not be a "Mega-hit". It will also definitely drive hardware. That is for certain. But unless there are more titles of it's stature to keep the momentum going, it's going to drop back down.

True, they need those JPN centric games.

Don't think you understand what he meant by "perception."

PSP has now outsold the DS YTD. Also there is only 2 DS titles in the top 10. It is becoming evident that Nintendo is starting to turn their attention away from the DS.
Yup, it's up to third parties to hold it up now. Though DQIX is probably going to boost it pretty hard.

DS needs a new model.

yes but:

NDS - 14
PSP - 3


you are forgetting that way more people own a DS than PSP. WAY MORE. I'd say japan is still very much focused on the DS judging by the overwhelming software sales.

Oh I know, I am in constant talks with friends in the region. It does need those centric games though. MGS4 is a start for the more mass market but it is still missing the big one, FF13.
