Poor Witcher 2... it can't even sell 5k. I guess those aren't the types of games the Japanese like though.

Good thing Persona 4 Arena is doing good in Japan. I'm surprised Atlus hasn't shown sales for the US yet because I think it did good due to how many people talk about it on forums of game sites.

Glad the Vita is doing good. It used to sell like 3,000 now it sells 10,000 a week. That's a good start. I hope it gets a price cut to bring in more sales and more devs because of the sells.

Japanese don't play on Xbox and Japanese don't play Western games in general. In comparison, look how much Dragon's Dogma or Dark Souls sold.

They probably will announce it later.

Bakemonogatari only moved 34.5 first week? Not terrible, I think it moved less than other recent ani-games by Bamco like OreImo and Haganai.

But it's the only non-Japanese game on the list (if we count out "Just Dance"), I think it's a big (sort of) result for a non-Japanese, not-American RPG based on a Polish writer's novels
