So, chances of MH3 making a million?

could get there eventually..

And WSR/DQ IX looking healthy.

sucks for Blood of Bahamut, and I didn't know Kamen rider was still kinda big in Japan

3.5 million already for DQ9...
PSP is definitely the platform to release Tales games on, it seems!
I wonder if we will ever get a flagship PSP title...

Unless Tales of Graces does very, very well (it could) I think it's very likely that Tales Studio will take the PSP very seriously in the future.

There's once again discrepancies between MC and Famitsu. That Tales of VS. number puts it right below ToS: DotNW launch numbers, they don't even really tell us if they're under tracking MH3 or not. There's also a ~20k difference for SD Gundam.

As expected, MH3 won't touch the popularity of the series in portables, but it has got a nice push of popularity since PS2 days. I pretty much expect a new MH for PSP announcement in this TGS.

So in the first two days MH3 sold 520,138. In the 7 days that followed it only sold 137,000. This doesn't look too good for that initial shipment. Legs? I doubt it.

But Tales of VS is not a rpg, is a fighting game.

Taking in consideration that Tales characters are not as known as Final Fantasy characters, it's normal to have lower sales than any Tales RPG or Dissidia.

There must have been a decent amount of hype demand for the bundles. So fans of the series took the plunge. The standalone didn't sell too well, which says the current Wii fanbase arn't interested - at the moment - still it could be a slow burner and even grow the fan base. It does have cool box art.

I think it could hobble along for quite some time.

I think that although Graces will not do as good as the PSP spinoffs in Japan, it has a chance to sell better worldwide on the Wii than on the PSP...

Kind of the same audience that bought Symphonia on the GCN (best selling Tales game ever), and I've seen many people buying the sequel on the Wii (I read somewhere it sold as well as Vesperia).

Tales games in the US now do about 50-100k at best. Symphonia's sales won't ever happen again.

Its below 33,000 regardless so for a console thats had a lot of JRPG love, and therefore the fanbase, I think those sales are quite low.
It's a shitty sequel to a shitty game. Who gives a fuck?

It depends largely on the statistics methodology used and extrapolations from Famitsu and Media Create.

If we take MH3 as example and considering shipments (if the sold games estimations were calculated by percentages) :

- If shipment of MH3 from Capcom was around 1 050 000 according to Famitsu, a 68,6% sell-rate represents 720 000 games sold.

- If shipment of MH3 from Capcom was around 950 000 according to Media Create, a 69,2% sell-rate represents 657 000 games sold .

So a difference of 0,6% is excellent for this very large numbers...

Anyone knows the sales numbers of DotNW in the USA? I thought it passed Vesperia numbers. That must show a big tales fanbase in the US; if the shitty game sells more than the good one...

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Really lucky timing. It was the first 3D Tales, on a RPG starved Nintendo console, with a decent push supported by Nintendo.
And it was a pretty awesome game ;-)
But i think Nintendo publishing it helped the most.

Like I said, we're taking about 100k for both titles. The difference between the two are like 10-20k at best. It's not a huge difference. :p

Wow, Tales of VS is also Matrix's first and only PSP game. I wonder how they landed that contract with Namco.



That didn't stop Alfa from making Tales of Innocence on the DS though.
The must be doing Phantasy Star Portable 2 too

So by Media Create numbers, DQIX is now the second-highest selling DQ of all time. The MC numbers put it on a much nicer pace than the Famitsu numbers. I guess time will tell.
It's selling steady too. 4 million looks within reach. They were aiming for 5 million (which is a little ridiculous) but it might manage that after a year. I don't read too much about this game, did they find a way to prevent a second hand market with it?

Bad, for what it's worth after the little hate bomb got dropped on this thread ;). It underperformed the original bigtime (115k first week on 177k lifetime), this game has been in development FOR-EEEEEEVER--although it was inactive for most of that time, and while the 360 is a non-presence in Japan this is still well below what JRPGs have been doing on the 360.

Kotaku, in your internets, shitting on your Monster Hunter sales: http://kotaku.com/5336507/is-monster-hunter-3-underperforming

However, when a million copies of a game are shipped, and there is a significant drop off in its second week, one can't help but think the game isn't living up to retail expectations. But those are only sales expectations, and sales expectations smells pectations. Monster Hunter 3 is doing great!
Videogame reporting at its finest.
