Tactics Ogre holding strong.

And Criminal Girls made the top ten! :lol
Of course it did. It would have to do -really- badly to not be in the top10 during weeks like this.

The last one i can remember is Halo 3, but i am not sure if this was the latest western game to chart at no. 1 though.

Oh, yeah, by Media-Create.

GTAIV also went no. 1 in 2008. Not as rare as I imagined.

Does MHP3 have any realistic chance at taking that crown?
I doubt it given that no one's been able to pre-order for weeks.


You know, it's interesting that only 5 franchises have 1 million+ debuts:

1. Dragon Quest
2. Final Fantasy
3. Pokemon
4. Resident Evil
5. Yu-Gi-Oh

No Mario or Monster Hunter on that list. That'll change next week, of course, but so far, it's been 4 RPG series and RE. :p

Initial shipment was 1 million a few weeks ago. It rised a bit (azalyn speaking) but I don't think even if there is the demand Capcom will be able to ship 1,5 miliion more before the week ends.

Pre-order allotments went faster than anyone expected. That, or Capcom's purposely limiting pre-orders to build hype. I could see them doing that after what happened with Tri last year, but they don't need to be that desperate.

Ah, I see then. If the sell out is absurdly high, it wouldn't surprise me if the PSN release (is it getting a PSN release?) does really well. I realize Japan doesn't like DD, but if it's DD or no game until Capcom ships new units, I think some will go DD.

Do we have any word on how many of those Monster Hunter PSP Sony is making? I can see that actually keeping hardware for the PSP flying for a bit.

This isn't a DS game. If the game sells out fast, Capcom will have it resupplied by the next day.
