I have nothing about the game, I'm really enjoying it. It's just not the kinda game that I see having these huge legs or breathtaking opening sales. Golden Week may be throwing me off because I don't know exactly what to expect from it, but I don't the numbers being that amazing. The userbase is still pretty small and I think Paper Mario 2 sold around 150,000 on a larger Gamecube userbase.
After some thought, I'm gonna go with 200k for SPM this week, 75k for second week, then 100k for 3rd week (Golden Week).
BBA I think will probably only do around 80-90k it's first week, but will probably have longer legs than SPM manages (ie it'll continue selling after Golden Week, SPM will likely drop big time after that).
Come on, dude. I know it's a joke, but let's not gloat, now.
Does anyone else think MS has killed Sony in Japan? Think of this way. The XBox flopped in Japan. The 360 flopped in Japan. The PS3 is clearly aimed at one-upping Microsoft, including its software library (an FPS was its marquee launch title, for God's sake). Now, the PS3 is flopping in Japan.
Basically, in Japan, Sony has followed Microsoft right into the gutter.
