Since Castlevania released last week in Japan, it would be interesting to see what both PS2 CVs did in comparison. Does anyone have the numbers at hand?
Famitsu numbers:

Lament of Innocence first week (2003): 61,389
Curse of Darkness first week (2005): 28,049
 
Famitsu tracking first day figures leaked:

The 3rd Birthday - 111,331 - 57% sell-through
AKB1/48 (4 SKUs combined) - 175,470
Virtual On Force Memorial Box - 14,215 - 67.2% sell-through
Virtual On Force - 8,965 - 55.5% sell-through

In Japan, you mean? At least in the west, Lords of Shadow has been easily outperforming the DS entries.
Are you sure? The DS versions were usually good for ~200k in the US. There is something to be said about development costs, as well.

Do you also have the LTD for both games? Afaik there was a Castlevania/MGS4+PS3 bundle last week in Japan. Do the reported 27k include the units of those bundles?

If they are legit 3rd Birthday and Virtual On are first 2 days of sales.

{2003.11.24 - 2004.12.26} 0419. [PS2] Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (Konami) {2003.11.27} - 61.389 / 110.740
{2005.11.21 - 2005.12.25} 0833. [PS2] Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (Konami) {2005.11.24} - 28.049 / 42.926

Media Create might have tracked the bundle as new SKU.

It's legit, but I don't think that's how it works. The leak was from a list of Famitsu specifically tracking first day sales for all new releases for the week. It's not a leak from a general daily sales list, so it shouldn't matter when the game was released.

Every Famitsu first day report so far tracks the sales until Thursday. If something was released at Wednesday it was 2 days of sales. It should be the same this time.

I guess it will be called MHP3G, for PSP and propably will be released next December or spring 2012.

For the users that don´t know what AKB is like myself 2 minutes ago
AKB1/48
Interesting, so it's like a dating sim with photos of real girls instead of anime girls. A step in the right direction I guess. ^^

Though the guy in this video named himself "Azunyan" so... yeah. ^^ You could also see an Azynyan poster in the reflection of the screen when it was loading. :p

Pretty meh numbers for The 3rd birthday. It has been in development forever and will probably sell worse than PE2.

But they've been talking too much about an HD sequel lately so I'm guessing it will still happen even if T3B doesn't meet expectations.

It's the last AKB1/48 SKU in the table. Best case 45k but it is probably way lower.
I see, my theory that the hardware will be insane seems to be a bit off, but hardware numbers for the PSP will be big.

I thought the creepy wotas would have pushed this higher.
It is going pretty well, actually. Also, the official site was selling surprise bags for 20,000 yens (USD 200), which contain a random ticket ("high five" ones that allow you to attend any stage including birthdays, specials, etc, or "98%" that let you attend any stage except first and last day), and they are now selling a second set which includes a raffle for a 60 2-shot pictures.

There is where wota's money is going right now. That and the premium PSP packs with the game.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Level 5 didn't overship. Shocking.
You mean retailers didnt Order more than the market can handle right ? Level 5 will be just fine and Ninokuni will continue to sell well especially since retailers already reduced the price.
 
PSP Go was cracked yesterday and now both models are sold out on amazon.jp (#43 and #73 on the top 100). I don't think they even charted that high with the huge pricedrop or on launch day.

Coincidence? :lol
 
IE3 Ogre shipment is the direct consequence of overshipping the first two versions of IE3, lets remember here Level-5 claims to have shipped 1,1m as of September and last tracked number is 850k with no usual charting in top50.

Anyway, 70% is a reasonable sell through unless Nintendo is pulling the 'hey we'll take 3 weeks to give you another production slot', in that case it'll be severely undershipped :p

PD: Some Shining Hearts guy said on twitter they have shipped 150k.

Surprise, from 2006-2010 the only PSP games listed are MH-games.
Surprise, lately if your console doesn't have Nintendo or DQ/main FF games released that year you better not expect to have a game in the top 10.

Monster Hunter and Inazuma Eleven are the exceptions.

And the only non-Nintendo/PSP/PS2 was a mainline Final Fantasy.
I don´t disagree with you but let´s not ignore that PSP is the second most sold system this Gen in Japan and got the overly hyped SQEX games Bbs, Crisis Core and "MGS5"... I mean Peace Walker. So, it´s obvious that Monster Hunter beeing the only games since PSP launch charting looks a bit weird in comparison to Wiis several entries.

Well yeah, it' because Nintendo set the standard so high that most "commoners" ( even the "big" names you cited ) have hard time to crack the yearly top 10.

PSP has sold a shit load of hardware in Japan enough to be considered a market leader in normal circumstance but if we look at its million-seller list in the region, well there is only MHP, a bunch of them :lol

On the other hand Wii and DS has exclusively the publisher that in the last 15 years or so accounted alone for almost a third of total software sales in the country.

- Crisis Core is the third best selling FF spinoff (after Final Fantasy Tactics and Dissidia) and sold much better than the other FFVII spinoff.
- Peace Walker will probably end as the best selling MGS in Japan (not adding budget and special releases). If I remember correctly it was at >800k a few weeks ago.

You might have a point with BBS. We'll have to wait and see if KH3D can sell as good as the numbered KH games.
I would say that all those 3 games have more or less meet sales expectation in Japan.
They were all serious attempt by big japanese publishers ( basically two numbered entries in popular franchises without the number in the title and the recognized followup of a very beloved game ).

The worldwide picture is a bit different. Not sure for Crisis Core but I think the other two could have been hurt by PSP current state in western markets.
There is no way that PW can meet Konami initial forecast of 3 millions and KHBBS should have an hard time to outsell the DS spinoff in America ( KH main market).
