P-p-p-p-price collapse. Project X Zone for 980 yen (no clue which shop this is at).

http://jin115.com/archives/51921543.html
Wow, that's a pretty big price drop. The lowest I've seen it was for 2980 yen and I was thinking about picking it up at that price. I haven't checked in the past 2 weeks or so though.

I just picked up IE123 (for my gf) and Fantasy Life as well as a PSP for me, so I was trying to hold off on more games at the moment.

How so? Thursday is the standard release day. Info leaks usually hit Wednesday, right?
You're talking about Famitsu the magazine, but the numbers on the magazine are always a week later.

We use the numbers from the Famitsu website which are from the latest week.

Do I understand it correctly? The magazin's release on the 10th of january includes two weeks worth of data but the famitsu website will release the data of 2012's last week soon? So nothing is delayed?

If you took his quote into any consideration, you would realize he is in a time zone that is close to a day behind japan.
He could be in a place where late Wednesday is early Thursday, several hours behind Japan, not close to a full day at all. His post doesn't clarify that.

Since there are no numbers out yet, I'll accept your predictions.

If anyone still want to guess today before any numbers are released, I'm willing to accept too.

You're talking about Famitsu the magazine, but the numbers on the magazine are always a week later.

We use the numbers from the Famitsu website which are from the latest week.
You know much better than I do but the Japanese I quoted is talking about the date the next mag is going to release, not the edition of the magazine.

What you don't understand is that the magazine publication always has older numbers. If there was a release this week for example, the magazine would carry numbers from 2 weeks ago, instead of the most current sales chart which would be the previous week's. The website will post the latest sales charts long before the magazine does. The reason for this is that the magazine is printed in advance.

When the next Famitsu magazine is released has zero bearing on when we get the latest sales updates from the website.

Just provided what I found and thought was relevant in English. I don't know how the sales info works, don't follow it as much as most of the people in these threads.

Yeah, that's why Road was saying it didn't really matter. That information is relevant to when we get the next Famitsu news scoops (if there are any in the next issue), but the magazine isn't where we get the sales data from usually. Thanks though!

Sorry if this's been said.

Today is the last day of New Year's holidays in Japan. However, since tomorrow is Friday, many companies are having holidays until the following Monday. I'd say numbers depend on whether companies are going back to work tomorrow or not.

Just my guess though.

no it's not bad at all these days... but I failed many times to catch up with one piece but always failed the damn thing is just too huge to catch up lol
I guess, I get hung up on how bad Part 2 is compared to Part 1. I loved Part 1, but Part 2? Apart from a few moments (Pain, the 4th, J-Man's death) it's been so disappointing.

I have not seen any NPD prediction threads. So I was really counting on getting my Media Create fix this week. Are we now saying monday?

I agree 100% I also hate Sasuke not sure why people love that guy.

But Naruto seems to be turning around a bit. Hope it ends before it gets worst.

Talking about Sasuke... he has been gone for a while and I don't know how the current story arc would get him back in it.
