    Poor PS2. T_T

    • veniks

      Yeah, must be very sad being the best selling console of all time and still being sold even though its generation has long ended :P

    Expected a lot higher for .hack//Versus. Surprised to see it at only 16.5 K.

    • FinalFantasy_fangirl

      Me too I didn’t expect the sales to be so poor I also thought MGS collection would sale more

      • 浪黒雷 (ロークロライ)

        Not including MGS:PW certainly hurt sales a lot. On the other hand most Japanese gamers got their fill on PSP already. Not surprised it didn’t sell more.

    • Zero

      The sales are surprisingly low.

      I guess its probably because its a fighting game, and not on a portable.

  • syaznifaiq

    I’m happy for Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Indeed. It did pretty good, though I’d like to know how past Atelier PS3 titles sold during its first week in comparison. It’s something I’m going to look up in my free time.

      I still can’t believe that’s the game’s official English name (one two many of’s). NISA will likely change it though.

      • アキラ

        Meruru did better in it’s first week.

  • NCloud

    The PS2 is doing pretty well, considering its age.

  • veniks

    Is that a pokeball she is holding?

  • InternatlGamer3

    Why do the Japanese still eat up buying Pokemon games, I dont mind turn based RPG’s dont get me wrong but Pokemon NOW would be better as an Action-RPG or have a real time Battle system.I grow tired of how NINTENDO spits out the same franchises OVER & OVER & OVER & OVER. I still love Nintendo as I grew up buying them SEGA, & SONY’s consoles. However now I stick with SONY cause I like how they continually create new IP’s every generation. they are more creative than Nintendo who stifles their creativity by barely doing anything new,Creative & Original.

  • whiteferrero

    hey P4G already got almost 200k sold. awesome

    • Zero

      Pretty good for a vita game. :D

  • Miranda Lawson

    Pokemon is on top, no surprise there. Even though I don’t play Pokemon games anymore I can still see why it would be at the top of the list, the Pokemon games have always been good.
