Japan Sales Totals for last week:

1. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Nintendo, Wii): 506,000 (2,440,000)
2. Zelda Spirit Tracks (Nintendo, DS): 291,000
3. Friend Collection (Nintendo, DS): 227,000 (2,317,000) Will this come here? I think it's Sims type game with Mii's no?
4. Final Fantasy XIII (Square Enix, PS3): 189,000 (1,690,000) Trailed off, much like Uncharted 2 did here.
5. Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver (Nintendo, DS): 125,000 (3,465,000)
6. WiiFit Plus (Nintendo, Wii): 114,000 (1,315,000)
7. Inazuma Eleven 2 (Level-5, DS): 99,000 (908,000)
8. Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo, Wii): 72,000 (1,568,000)
9. Taiko Drum Master Wii 2 (Namco Bandai, Wii): 64,000 (200,000)
10. Professor Layton and the Demon's Flute (Level-5, DS): 64,000 (559,000) Did anyone here get into the Layton games? I think Darth did.

I loved the two Layton games translated so far.  Can't wait to play all of them eventually

the two things i'm happiest about with these charts are Level-5 doing so well with Inazuma Eleven (hopefully translate that for the west please?) and Namco doing well with Taiko Drum again!!

But that begs the question, are we going to do more mature titles for the Wii? And it’s like, probably not. Look at Dead Space. We were stunned. That was my litmus test. Basically, it’s like, okay, you got EA, who can put all the marketing muscle behind this, an established franchise that scored quite well on 360 and PS3. They should be able to actually hit this out of the park, right? We get numbers, real numbers aside from NPD, and I’m like, ‘Woah.’” - Constantine Hantzopoulos, studio director at SEGA


This is WTF, for all the reasons already mentioned as to why Dead Space Extraction wouldn't sell in the first place, the biggest WTF part is that EA did NOT leverage its marketing might towards this product. As we've already heard from an analyst, they actually scaled back marketing before it even launched. And as said analyst said, when it comes to wii sales and marketing have a huge correlation.

And that’s what I saw out of Conduit. Because not a bad game, visually it’s appealing, right? AI wasn’t that great. High Voltage’s first real effort as an indie developer, creating their own IP. And it was a good effort, right?

And this is LOL. No, it wasn't bad, just mediocre, a first effort from an indie developer. This is suppossed to sell millions amrite?

But yeah, Aspro is right, just look at some of the people here. They get their meat somewhere else and then get the potatos on wii.

I am really baffled by  Poupodopolous or however it is spelled.

He says that HoTDGASP and Conduit reached their targets, so what's the problem? And why is he comparing the market of light gun shooters to DS:E, while they have a light gun shooter that has sold a million? And is he really admitting they are selling Mature games to 13 year olds?

It all sounds Greek to me.

Here's a question that probably has a very simple answer, but I can't seem to figure it out...

In the forums how do we access pages 8 through 19? There's a "next" button at the bottom of the page for all the pages up to the elipse division on the page-jump links, but when you actually get to page "7" there's no "Next" button!

Errrr... ? ? ?

File these kind of issue in the Official site bug topic.  Just posting it here or in a thread I may overlook it.

And checking, yes, there seems to be an issue there.  Not sure what happened.  As a short-term workaround until I get that resolved, you can change the page number in the address bar, it should be the last number before .html.

SEGA thinks Nintendo could drop the Wii price to $80 and still make money

Sega said:
“The interesting thing is Nintendo, they make money off of every console they sell. I think one of the big things that we found out is it really is a mass market product where mom or whoever goes out, the 80% of the people out there who go out and buy a Wii box are happy with Wii Sports and they don’t really need another game. Or if they do need another game, they’ll buy Wii Resort because it comes with a free Wiimote or Wii Play…So, honestly I don’t know…You can obviously see that profits are down for Nintendo. I think the Wii is on its tail slide, unless they drop the price to like 80 bucks then you’ll start seeing it flying off the shelves.And I believe they’ll still make money if they drop it to 80 bucks…Point being is they have the ability to lower the price on the Wii [...] where Sony and Microsoft cannot do that.” - SEGA's Constantine Hantzopoulos
