DQ destroying everything? Can't say that was unexpected...

I wonder how DQIV will do here...

I think the real news is that Diamond and Pearl suddenly jumped into the top 20.
They were both in the Top 40 last week. Moor-Angol mentioned that there was a new Pokemon movie out in Japan, so that is probably why they're seeing a resurgence.

Kagari said:
lol, what was the new color?
Metallic Blue was mentioned in last week's thread. I think there was also a bundle with Gundam Battle Universe.

And how the hell did PSP still outsell DS?
Because everyone already owns one or two DS systems over there? There are only so many people in the country. It already passed PS2's LTD in Japan what, like 6-7 months ago?

Unless I'm totally missing it, I don't MGS4 on last week's chart at all, that's kinda an odd jump.

Also I'm probably totally insane, but the DQ number seems kinda low to me as far as what I was expecting. It's a good remake/port of a game that is often voted the #1 game of all time in Japan, in the #1 game series in Japan, on an insanely hot system with a large userbase. I would imagine they probably went through their entire shipment though. On the other hand since it's DS it'll probably have good legs, sales aren't front-loaded as much.

Whoever published it must be really happy since it was a cheap, simple port.
Don't think it's a port, the combat mechanics is completely different.

It's the best debut for a DQ game on DS to date. The first to do above 600k in the first week according to MC numbers.

Kinda surprised that MGS4 is still in the top 30 after all of these weeks. usually for a lot of PS3 games, it would have been out of the top 50 by now.

Yeah, usually with these types of games, after the first week, the used game sales usually take over, so it's good to see that MGS4 actually has some legs.

It was already just remade on PS2... there's only so much remaking that one game can withstand. Some of the Final Fantasy games are at the breaking point for that.

For a crap baseball game, Mario Stadium is still kicking

RE0 on the charts just means it is making that much more $$$

ToS2 still sticking around is good to see, anyone know what the LTD on it is?

Hm RE0 dropped a lot more than I thought
Most people were amazed it charted as high as it did last week, where did you think it would be sitting?

Dunno if DQVDS is going to beat DQVPS2...
Depends on the legs.

I'm just kinda bummed about Starfi under-performing. If it doesn't sell comparatively to the last game, we may not see a new game, and I'd like to see a console Starfi, maybe with Wario Land's style (and Wario as an ally, like in the third game).

Yep. If the falloff from this is at all comparable to DQ4, it's going to come very close to (if not surpass) the PS2 version.

These aren't really legs, necessarily. The top ten ended at 16k the last two weeks; MGS4 has been hanging out in what's probably the >10,000 sales region as a result. It's pretty close to the "insignificant off-chart growth" point, so in order to truly have "legs" now it'd need to stick it out around 10,000 a week for quite some time, something I'm not sure will actually happen.

But according to Sinobi, there is no shortage this time, which is why I'm a bit worried. It still has done absolutely phenomenally well, no question. I just dunno if it'll beat it's big brother (which was still fairly "recently" released, though not as bad as FFIV).

For hardware sales at least. Almost doubling Wii sales over there. That's pretty insane.

Even tho the software isn't dominating as much, it's still doing decently (by PSP standards). In the US, you hardly ever see a PSP game break the top 10 (God of War and a few other exceptions).

New color was released to help stem the tide of DQ.
PSP has been selling nearly as well over there for a while though.

I'm not sure how much the "new color" has to do with it.

Seeing as how PSP's been doing slightly above 45,000 the past couple weeks, I'd say ~25,000.

That new Gundam game might have had some sort of effect too though.

Well it is the best of the three DQ's being remade, so it makes sense that it does the best. :)
