I've had too much bad luck with system failures this gen. I'm not prepared to accept another one.

Blood of Bahamut has a pretty good second week.
Was it a massive price collapse or good word of mouth?

Tomodachi Collection is BEASTING

Also, I feel bad for any RPG that has yet to be released this year.
DQ9 is not going to slow down any time soon.

Is there any reason Tomodachi is rising so much? New ad campaign? Store deals? Or is its word of mouth just that crazy?

And I dont mean just this week, I mean for the last several weeks.

Puyo Puyo titles always have good legs.
Most of the titles this gen had never once appeared on the top 30, however, they've always made it into at least the top 500.
The DS rerelease of Puyo Puyo launched with 4.4k, but went on to do 81k.

True. It's been awhile since a Puyo game did blockbuster sales though.

Word of mouth probably due to the fact that it's a great game by a great and highly talented developer.

As a matter of fact my wall mounted Sony TV fell off due to a faulty hinge and crushed my 3 month old puppy

I don't own a puppy, I'm a 360 supporter, that's all.

I'm wondering what's gonna happen when Pokemon comes out. I see a LOT of kids playing DQ. Maybe Pokemon will have a slower start than usual while DQIX is still "in season".

Or maybe because people are using their DS's often people will buy it faster, causing a DQ slingshot effect into the sun.

Or not.

It will make a big difference in spurring sales, but not one that will take it ahead of, say, the Wii. After the initial frenzy, we'll see sales settle back down to something comparable to pre-price-cut levels, but I think the key difference is that big software releases will spur hardware sales to greater heights (i.e. bumps will be bigger from here on in).

But it's also possible for Pokemon to impede on DQIX's potential legs.

Either way, one system getting major installments of two top, established franchises within about two months of each other is pretty unprecedented. Makes me wonder what Nintendo has planned for the end of the year, which seems more Wii-focused at the moment.

Wii Fit Plus - 10/1
NSMB Wii - 11/x

I'm thinking Galaxy 2 could be Spring, Metroid: Other M in August, and Zelda delayed to 2011. Pikmin 3 in Fall, then?

The difference in sales between Golden Week and Obon, especially comparing software and hardware, is interesting.

There isn't any price cut in Japan and supply is really low.
Hence PS3 sales could/should go even lower than they currently are until the first week of September. Then we'll see what happens.

Serious? How can anyone (except for Sony) have tested the the PS3 Slim enough by now to know if the Bluray player is worse, unless that it is something that gets noticed at once you start to use the PS3 Slim? But how is the Bluray player worse?

But ye, i also like the design on the PS3 Phat better than the PS3 Slim (i havnt seen the PS3 Slim personally though, so maybe i like the design better if i see the PS3 Slim in person, but i have seen some pictures of it at least).

Pity to hear that :( But the PS3 Slim might be a reliable console when it comes to not getting hardware problems. I guess that we will see how many reports that comes in from people who have had hardware problems with the PS3 Slim within the weeks and/or months after the PS3 Slim gets released :)

What PS3 fall? The PS3 sales increased this week compared to last week (last week the PS3 sold 6300 consoles (Famitsu numbers)) :) I guess that you mean the fall in general over the last couple of months/years or so though, but i just wanted to mention that the PS3 did increase in sales this week, eventhough that the increase is rather small :) And ye, the Xbox 360 sales are good this week (at least compared to how the Xbox 360 weekly sales were like 2 years ago or so), i agree :)

Why is it sadly that next week will be a different story? And why is it hard to be a jp 360 supporter now? Isnt it possible to support more than just one gaming system, if that is what you mean? :)

EDIT: I added some text.

Dropped out of the Top 30 at 50K. That was two months ago so maybe it's in the 60-70K range by now.
