Or ready to get full into new-gen?

EDIT: I don't mean for this to seem like a garbage post. I just think the assumption that Japan's lack of interest in last-gen software indicates they're ready to jump into what GAF considers next-gen is problematic.
would japanese react to killer PS3 software? I am not sure anymore.

There is something that fundamentally hinders PS3 penetration and that is the price, I believe.

will final fantasy 13 sell 2 million in its first week, as usual for a numeric FF title??

MGS:pO remains that rare thing, a PSP title showing some legs. well deserved and should be celebrated.

Nintendo continue to dominate ridiculously.

what is going on with ps3 the software sales? it's really pretty shocking.

No noteworthy releases (that the Japanese give two shites about) I'd wager.
in all honesty, has that ever stopped a system at launch before?

the line up isn't great, but you'd think a game like genji with good graphics would sell at launch. you'd think ridge racer 7 would be tearing up the charts... at least i would.

Price, lack of a killer app, lack of cute, quickly-played games focusing on simple tasks.

My guess is that it will begrudgingly move PS3's... but not with those kind of sales. This hinges on the assumption that there won't be a drastic price cut before then.

Lol i seen that psp sales were ahead of the DS and i knew that something was up.. sure enough it was last year. Nintendo has come a long way with the DS in the last year in seperating their DS from the psp.

insane sales for mario.. 4 million wow

Me too. RR7 might not be a revolutionary leap in the series. But it certainly is a AAA IP that should be setting the console on fire in Japan. The fact that we never see it in the top 30 is rather alarming. At least for Sony.

The only reason PSP is ahead on that chart is because of shortages.

Well It's around ~100k (with Gundam).
Btw, I'm a little surprised at the decent performance of Resistance which managed to sell ~75k.

What's Zelda's LTD? Both in Japan and WW?
Through December, the Wii version is about 1.8 million worldwide. In Japan (through Jan 14), it is about 350k.

Thanks. So that's only for the Wii version? Which means if we combine the GC versions, it could be a bit over 2.5 million WW? Fookin awesome!

If true, I'd be one of those 10-20K people that didn't buy Wii Sports with the Japanese Wii. :p
So how many Wii's will you end up owning in total? :p

Depends on what Capcom decides to do this gen with RE. :p

I heard there will be two different limited edition Wii's for that. Capcom wants to bankrupt you.

Wow, Dragon Quest Monsters already almost at a million. I'm shocked at Square Enix's betrayal, after a performance like that.
two new PSP games that are remakes constitutes a betrayal?

Nintendo is a Japanese company. I think they were just more focused on the Japanese market and what was wrong with it, which is what led them in the direction they're going. And now they're trying to push the rest of the world in the same direction Japan is already going.

So is this officially one full year of DS shortages or did that happen last week?

Either way... HOLY SHIT!
It's been a year, but Nintendo wasn't doing it on purpose back then, then they started to do it on purpose by only shipping about 150K a week up until the holidays.

Because they are making a lot more on DS games?

Yep, and furthermore, even if PSP and DS games sold the same amounts, development costs are cheaper on DS because of the limited hardware.
