Seems like Dengeki didn't track the 360 version of EoE for some reason, hence the larger than normal difference.

I think for BbS, we might ultimately have to wait for S-E's next financial results to see what they eventually managed to ship. With the 3 trackers not only having totally varying sales figures, but also varying shipment estimates, it's a total mess. :lol
Ah yes, S-E and the accurate shipment method they have:

''DQIX is the best selling DQ. We shipped 4,2 million copies.''

One month later
''DQIX is the best selling DQ. We shipped 4,15 million copies.''

Check the post I quoted ;)
Learn to read. :)

Edit: Since more than one person is blind, I will explain. Dengeki PS, as their name suggests, lists only the top10 Playstation family sales for the week tracked by Ascii. The Dengeki overall top10 was already posted above that. If you people bothered to use your eyes and brains to deduce what was going on, I wouldn't have to explain this.

Dude, I very well saw that it was a PS table only, but didn't know that Resonance of Fate and End of Eternity were the same game. So your edit do not apply to me.

Looks like everyone who really wanted it got it for 360 already. Seems like the PSP might not be the backup console anymore (and possibly why 5pb is going 360-only for its future PC-ports).
The PSP port is selling the same as the 360 version (Famitsu):

[360] 11 Eyes: Cross Over - 10,022 / 11,317
[PSP] 11 Eyes: Cross Over - 10,100 / 10,100

Those Dengeki PS numbers fool me every week into thinking Sony has taken over japan.

But I realize my mistake way before hitting "Reply".

Yes, (although I was referring to dengeki numbers), but that's the point: PSP ports of these games usually outsell the 360 version 2-3x (see: Clannad). The fact that they're moving so closely with each other shows that the majority that wanted it had already gotten it for the 360 instead of waiting for the PSP port. The PSP numbers being so similar means that the only people that got it were people who only play on portables or didn't own a 360 (a minority of a minority, so to speak).

Not to mention the PSP version specifically released after the anime had just finished, so it also had the benefit of the popularity of the series and the wider interest, which also would contribute to the higher number of sales.

Or it could be that it's just a port, and like most ports with little distinction sales rarely move further than the original because those who were initially interested would have taken the steps to purchase it in the first place, other than retain the wishful thought of a port. There are examples were PSP ports of 360 games have gone on to sell better, but there aren't that many cases in that regard to suddenly suggest the PSP might not be the backup console anymore, not that I ever thought it was. :p

Which is why I suggested the possibility. This is the first example of the PSP port not handily outperforming the 360 port, and this is despite a stronger demographic/media mix. Whether that will become the trend or not obviously remains to be seen, and is why I said it'll be interesting to see how No Fate! does, because it will be the first simultaneous platform release.

And the PSP is definitely the de facto backup console of choice for ADV developers. Whether it's first a PS2 game or a 360 game, if it doesn't sell or wants more sales, you'll hear about a PSP port after, never before. :p

Apparently Sandlot spent three years developing Reginleiv for the Wii - they started working on the title even before the Wii was released.

It also seems Onken practically hit the nail on the head this time in regards to the PS3.

Yup. I definitely got that one wrong..shock!

Its amazing to see how long Wii can maintain decent sales when they literally have nothing coming up that can sell more than 75K LTD.

Yeah it is still holding really well.

Also, it seems that retailers ordered quite a few copies of God Eater, especially if the stack on the left is indicative of how high all the stacks used to be:



Also its marketing seems to be hitting all the classy notes:





Thanks to whoever took these.
