Sega in Third

These numbers are all fairly decent. I would expect a nasty drop off for End of Eternity next week though, as it is an RPG, and on the PS3 to boot. I would go so far as to estimate it dropping to about thirty or fourty thousand.

The sales drop for Valkyrie PSP, while disappointing, aren't really unexpected. The franchise swapped platforms. While its debut week was stronger, the fall off was much worse, which is also characteristic of franchise games. And while we're on the subject, it looks as though Valkyrie on the PS3 is at about 840,000 units world wide, and chugging toward a million. I hope this becomes a major franchise.

Phantasy Star Portable 2 is doing much better than I had expected, so I really have no complaints on that front. It seems to be doing quite better than Phantasy Star Zero, and all told I think is helping to push the series into a new bracket of popularity in Japan.

The Puyo Puyo numbers are commendable, and are also par for the course with recent prior games in the series.

Oy. Can this be a sticky? Please  :mrgreen:

Ever since the re-release of Yakuza 3, the game continues to sell quite a bit, Yakuza 4 has every possibility to become the best selling Yakuza game on current generation consoles, so long as the Playstation 3's sales doesn't drop down to sub 20,000 units. Hopefully the release of GT5 would also mean the re-release of Yakuza 4 has a larger audience for the game.

Also made into a sticky.

Good lord, you don't have authority here do you?

And I meant to make  point about Yakuza 3 selling quite well, especially given the install base. And it seems to be hanging on to its numbers on the charts quite well. Its kept a pretty steady pace. I can see it passing the 600,000 mark eventually.

As for Yakuza 4, I'm saying it will debut between 375 and 425 thousand week one.
