Given the bizarre and s**t taste the Japanese seem to have for games I'm not surprised.

The crap that comes out of japanese design studios is just embarassing.

lol, and some of the best games ever made have come out of japan too.

out of interest, about how many % of all games from japan have you seen and played to make your judgement? i'll have a guess: 0.01% :D

This has to be one of the most idiotic statements i've ever read on a gaming forum :shock: . You obviously have no clue on what makes a good game, and that's a FACT!!!

Thoughts on this week

1) COD did more than fine for an american shooter
2) Pokemon Mystery dungeon did great, now localize nintendo
3) Animal crossing continues to be a system seller
4)E.X. Troopers , capcoms new shooter attempt Bombed hard.

wishface doesn't actually like any game. I am surprised though, this game seems really not for japanese taste.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Please tell me I'm missing something here, otherwise this is a very embarrassing typo.

EDIT: Ah I see, you combined CoD's sales, nevermind.

Given the amount of popular japanese games before this generation I'm pretty sure it would be more then 0.01%.

If you add in the sales figures for Mexico and Canada the cod series was the biggest seller in Japan.
It essentially sold out in Japan but there was not enough stock.
What you see on the shelves is the rapid restock after the sell out.
This was always activisions plan.
Another true story.

It's not. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time and Darkness did a combined 500k in their first week
