Vesperia on the PS3 was a really obvious but good decision.

What is LTD number for Vesperia 360?
It's probably not much more than the 140k it did in its first two weeks.

Does anyone have the ltd sales of Rhythm Heaven Gold (in Japan) ?
1,791,593 as of August 17th and selling ~3-5,000 per week at that point so probably add another 20k to that.

Hmm, could it level out around 40 - 50k?

That still seems incredibly unlikely to me, but given that I didn't think there was any way it would sell 250K or so in 3 weeks, maybe I'm not the best person to ask.

Well let's say that we're almost in October... Even with a slow decrease in sales, general Holiday increases will keep the number floating and FFXIII is sure to provide boosts. I think it's doable, but I'm not the best person to ask either cause I'm barely ever in these threads :lol

I thought it sold more than 200k, must be Blue Dragon and SO4 then.

[NDS] SaGa 2: Hihou Densetsu, 91,547 / NEW

Is that a good number for this game? What was the total shipment?
From the last thread:

Road said:
First shipment from Famitsu:

SE - 155,000
AE - 14,000
Total - 169,000

Selling 90,000 to 100,000 would be between 53% and 59%.

With FFXIII around the corner it seems like the PS3 can beat the Wii in YTD. realistic or not? i mean, wii is still getting wii fit + and new super mario bros wii.

The problem is FF13 is still 3 months away, and Nintendo has the price drop and Wii Fit+/NSMB Wii as you said.

Yes, next Thursday alongside Wii Fit Plus. It obviously won't make as big an impact as the Slim, but it could help push hardware up a decent amount for a bit.

DQIX is definitely going to hit four million. Wow. I never thought we'd see the day.
If you log into the wi-fi shopping today, they have created an awesome pic for "4 million shipped". Wish I'd taken a pic the first time I logged in as it doesn't display again :/

I think Wada is going to get his wish and have five million shipped. I think DQIX will finally end up at about four and a half millions in the end.

Thanks for doing the thread, cvxfreak and Road. :)

With Vesperia debuting pretty high and the fairly large amount of PS3 titles in the Top 50, has the PS3 turned a corner? Are third-parties' continued efforts of support of PS3 over Wii finally starting to show strong headway in Japan?

B-b-but guys, I was told that Vesperia wouldn't do go over Eternal Sonata's debut sales for sure :(

.... that aside, great numbers overall. Should round 400k or so in Japan.

LOL no.

How can people predict things like this ?

Great Vesperia sales, I think namco finally learned their lesson.

I think PS3 will be at 30-35k next week.

Japan may be relevant still. Since when did PS3 start beating Wii?
Yes, because to be relevant it means you need to be fully devoted to the 2 poorest-selling consoles worldwide :p

Go Ys 7, go DQ9, go SaGa 2!

wha @ uncharted managing to claw its way back onto the charts :D
You don't see the correlation between a price drop, new hardware and a bunch of best/platinum titles making reappearances?
