    Nice to see that Persona 4 Arena is off to a good start.

      Was about to say. Super stoked for its U.S. release next week. And I’m typically not a fighting game fan!

        I’m excited to pick up my copy of the game on Tuesday. =)

      Same! I just bought the 360 controller with the adjustable d-pad and suddenly SSFIV’s combos became that much easier to pull off!

  • FaithlessMr

    And Dragon Quest Monsters: TW 3D still lives on the top 20! I want to see it cross the 1mil mark in japan at the very least. SE or Nintendo should pick the game up for an international release!

    I am sorry but I just hate Nintendo, I mean they keep rehashing their games, and japan loves it!! Look at the new 3ds that was a horrible hardware revision yet it selling like crazy…….. And then Sony gives them pure gold… but like fools Sony didn’t cater games for the Japanese audience. (Ps Vita)
    What is taking sony so long to get this sorted….. grrr.
    At least the PSP is still going strong….. i
