@Axe99 well actually you brought it up when you said the est was best at producing in a timely manner
1 year, 2 months ago on Is 2012 the year Japanese gaming fights back?
@Axe99 blah blahblah
breakdown of europe, US, asia spending habits
@Axe99 again we cant accurately compare that
Theres less jrpgs on consoles this gen for a reason and its because consoles are doing miserably in japan
In terms of sales ff does well,pokemon broke records in the UK cost ist a side factor to what I just said
@Axe99 company financials mostly
Nintendo I pay the most attention too.
In terms of software its doing pretty damn well in the states. with multiple platinum hits.
@Axe99 why you brought it up in the first place I dont know.
i call it monotonous @Axe99
i am officially over this topic.
VG chartz numbers are as accurate as throwing a dart at the wall ( quote from industry insider)
Companies will not permit the use of them on there forums because they are essentially fake numbers.
Axe99 Sorry but I will never look at vg charrtz
All that matters is worldwide. And right now nothing is beating the 3ds.
Axe99 But in the same vein a company like square enix can hire media visions, a large company to make chaos rings
Axe99 vg chartz uses a sales algorithm. They dont use any analysted tracked sales.
Ive been warned many times that using vg chartz is bannable because of how fake the numbers are
we were talking about everything.
And only a dev can know the size of a project.
For example a game like chaos rings 2. How do we know it took less work than tactics ogre?
1) Believe me it reflects on them
2) Most japanese devs have put way more projects on handhelds this gen because they are just more popular.
Ex. Lets take atlus japan. They havent done a single rpg on a console this gen. So one might say derr japanese rpgs are dead.
But then you look. And they did radiant historia, stange journie, devil survivor 1,2, nora, etrian oddessy 1,2,3 all on handhelds you see thats wrong
well every time I see vg chartz its either 3ds or ps3
Axe99 we werent talking better= quantity
we were talking if japan manages release dates as well as the west
and in reality only 1 game from square is getting dev hell
dont use vg chartz, its likr making up a number
And I am saying there are reasons why
Japan devs are releasing very few games on the ps3 compared to handhelds and other platforms.
Japan devs have MADE THE SAME effort to make console games for the western market. Nothings changed really. Look at kingfield

Highest rated game of the gen - mario galaxy 1 and 2
Highest selling overall - wii fit
highest selling on a single system - pokemon black white
More new dev teams - japan
Highest revenue earners - japan - In the 2011 list sega, nintendo, sony, capcom, konami, square all topped the list
Highest hardware sales - nintendo
those are facts.
And I am saying there are circumstances WHY
What systems are most popular in UK right now? The ps3 and the 3ds.
The 3ds is just starting to heat up, its also popular in japan
BUT the ps3 is not. THATS WHY
we were talking pure quantity.
If you dont think cracking 100k is anything than you really dont have a clue about games not named COD.
Right now the 3ds is number 1 in the world. No system sold more in less time than the 3ds/.
