Holy crap at Dark Souls! (Sony, you fools!)
Congrats to 3DS. It was always going to be a winner.

Yay for Ico/SotC and even Gears 3, ha!
How is Sony fools? Dark Souls is PS3 exclusive in Japan
And nice job 3DS! Keep it up!

Dark Souls and ICO/SOTC did waaaayyyyy more than I thought they would.

No idea why the 3DS got another bump...either WoM about the price cut is spreading or the boobie game. Can't be the latter :/

Wondering if the PSP's continued healthiness will have an adverse effect on Vita sales, like the DS appeared to with the 3DS prior to the price cut.

Rhythm Heaven will pass half a million in a few weeks. It seems to be stabilising around 15k/week.

Dark Souls getting mad respect. From Software has another winner.
Now, let's get Armored Core V out there.

360 Gets a Gears 3 bump. Sales far surpassing Resistance 3, as expected.

Nice 3DS bounce. Price cut + game announcements = sales. Go Fig.

Shadows of the Damned sales :/
Gotta feel for the team on that project.

Oh man, Champion Jockey made it into the Top 10.
Someone has to find those .gifs from the announcement thread.

Well, it's certainly looking as though Nintendo's gamble on the price cut is going to pan out in Japan - now to see whether it can succeed in the rest of the world...

That's a pretty impressive increase for 3DS. So much for all the doom and gloom. It looks poised to go on an impressive run of sales.

Dark Souls opening is bigger than expected. Good for From Software.

That is an impressive 3DS number. Wonder where the baseline will settle. 4M by end of year looks pretty reachable.

It'll be funny when the standalone Ico and SotC remakes are more rare than the so called "Limited Box"

i've always wondered: while those people are programing jiggling 3D blobs to appear as tits, are they thinking it's a dream come true, or is it one of those 'how did my life come to this' moments?

Well that and the 40% price cut.
Yeah but what's curious is the post price cut we saw drops week after week, it's pretty amazing then that the 3DS would rise in two successive weeks after big announcements.

Wow, look at Dark Souls exploding. I'll be picking this one up eventually (huge backlog) but I'm glad it will do well.

Oh, and the 3DS is doing amazingly well despite MH not even being out yet.

Why do some titles get listed with the Western names? Even though they aren't actually planned for the West? Monster Hunter Freedom 3 instead of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is what I'm talking about. Also, aren't those numbers low for a re-release of a Monster Hunter? Granted it seems that the game already sold to the whole previous fanbase and then some before it got that re-release since it was the best selling. Anyway, weird to see 3DS sales rise again without any notable new releases. I guess it will keep some momentum until the big games start coming after all. How many more weeks until one of those releases?

this time From Soft get all the money, since they're the publisher.

so yeah Sony is a fool, one of their worst mistakes this generation is to abandon Demon's Souls.

Dark Souls is going to sell millions worldwide, more than most of Sony's first parties

Boobs sell.

So, how many crows do we need here? I've got to eat two. :/
Two? Take all your posts and multiple them by two you mean. 3DS was the next Virtual Boy, Nintendo HAS to discontinue the 3DS immediately, etc. If you ran a billion dollar business, you would have found a way to bankrupt them within 6 months.

Nice sales for Gears 3 (considering a shooter for X360 in Japan)
Is it dubbed? I remember seeing the first Gears of War dubbed in Japanese and it was trippy.
