Whoa, that's a very impressive start for Ratchet and Clank. I wish we still had the Shrine of Data so I could compare Naruto's to the previous titles in the series.. but 125k with the holiday sales period looming leads me to believe this one should do similar or better numbers to 3 (finished around 350k, right?).

P.S. It would have been a lot sweeter if we didnt know how much AC was gonna do in advance.. imagine the reaction if 300k+ wasnt known in advance? :lol

Impressive numbers all round. SC III seems to have gotten off to a good start. If I remember correctly sales were about 120k for all 3 platforms in the first week.

Of course the Animal Crossing sales are bloody huge, definitely see this doing 1m before the holiday season is over.

Great sales for Naruto 4. Naruto 3 did 116,964 last year and Naruto 2 only debuted at 76,900 a couple years back. This franchise is still growing. Soul Calibur 3 did pretty good, SC2 managed 140K across 3 platforms when it launched. A significant dropoff, but not too bad in the current climate and compared to the horrible western sales.

Do all 3rd party DS games bomb or what?
Well, Tamagitchi DS has outsold every psp 3rd party game in Japan and Naruto DS outsold every psp release for this year, so no. But the real test is next week whih sees Dragon Quest Slime Mori Mori and many other games including Powerpro 8 and Dragonball Z.

Oh and Bebpo is right, these sales overall are very strong with 4 games over 100K. Looking at the DS release list I think we may see some solid growth this year.

BTW, can we lock one of these MC threads.

That's insane for Animal Crossing! 325k is simply unbelievable for this game. I knew it would be big, not OMG we just outsold every DS game since launch good.

Tomorrow night is going to be fun when hardware comes out, that's for sure.

LOL, I thought you meant "11-30" as in November 30th. I looked near the top of the list, and it appeared that all of the new games dropped off the face off the planet.

Was about to claim that AC and Pokemon each had their legs cut off.

UGH! What a waste of a good photoshop opportunity. You can't write "digital crack" on the DS screens and blow the chance to do a "D... S..." acronym.

"Digital Sex" would have been better...

You apparently missed the previous thread that misread the first 2 days of sales as a tenth of their real value.
Apparaently you missed the part of that thread that said they were first week predictions.

What were first week sales for Animal Crossing on GC?

325K in one week for a remake is insane.

Amir0x will not be pleased.

So how about them three pillars eh?
The three pillars ought to be Japan, Europe, and America.

Doubt you'll ever see the same three consoles go 1-2-3 in software anywhere else in the world.

Whats the best selling PSP game and how many days until AC:DS outsells it?
Minna no Golf is the best selling PSP game so far. I have no clue as to the exact amount, though. I thought it was close to 500k?

EDIT: It's at 396,175 as of Oct 30.

Iwata and Miyamato must be laughing their asses off now.

It's ridiculous that in less than two weeks AC:WW will outsell the number one PSP game.

Good start for Naruto, keep going. Hope there's a Revolution sequel.
