We don't know what's wrong with the Japanese kids these days. They're into this thing called ... PSP
? What is that? We hear that if ingested improperly, "PSP" can cause all sorts of brain damage. Don't do it because all your cool friends are doing it!
- PSP: 71,986
- Wii: 50,851
- DS: 38,355
- PS3: 9,169
- PS2: 7,203
- 360: 1,959
Combined with the #1 selling game
in Japan this week, PSP really is a new phenomenon across the Pacific. Who knows? Maybe one day, this "Wii" thing will be able to catch up.

The PSP game Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu Portable 3 tops Japanese charts, not Monster Hunter.

Sadly, most of them thought they were buying an NAS.

The 360 rocks dude, the Japanese that buy them are just very independently minded.

You could be right, and it may be true. But that dosn't change the fact of how I feel about it. Alot of my cousins have 360, and friends. So I get to play it fairly enough. The only title I like on it that isn't on the other consols is gears of war. Everything else I choose PS3 over. I'm sure most of the japanese are quite disapointed with their 360. If not i'm sure they just enjoy the quality online play even though their community can care less for online.

The japanese don't care bout the 360 because they don't like FPSs. And over 50% of the 360 games are indeed, shooters.

wow seriously how many weeks has it been now?

Honestly, PSP might lack titles in the english market, but in the japanese? Its loaded. While nintendo lacks titles -everywhere-. Sure, you have zelda and mario remakes, but after going through them? fuuuck every system they make. (of course each system has two or three worth playing titles like wii has brawl and DS has ace attorney, but afterwards it turns into a nice paper holder)

I think that there are a heck of a lot of titles. Here is a list of reviewed: http://www.metacritic.com/games/psp/alpha/ then there are things like these: http://www.psponme.com/list_psp.asp?cat=Arcade

I meant good games

PCP? LMAO! NICE! I think I caught myself saying PCP once talking about my psp... I really wish the psp would do as well as the wii, cause in my opinion the wii sucks, but I'm a hardcore gamer.

PS have always do well at the pacific. Cause over here we don't have sony. they just need to pump in some japanese style games and it will make it to the top. even with PS3 which is surprisingly lack of japanese style game. what is sony thinking anyway? don't they wanna make money with their ps3 and kick that 360 out of japan for good?

I love my PSP and i love my NDS. (a little bit more, sometimes) but this selling frenzy that the PSP is going through won't last much longer. There's a little game called, Dragon Quest IX that's coming to the NDS in a couple of months or whenever it gets released.
So that's all i have to say about that.
The PSP doesn't have that game. And you know how much the Japanese love them some Dragon Quest. An besides, everyone already owns NDS. It really doesn't need to sell anymore. lol Nintendo has made so much money off the DS over the years. The PSP is finally start to catch up. But it's already too late, IMO. The DS behemoth has done it's damage.

Japan loves them some Birth By Sleep, and Dissidia. NDS is great, I love mine to death, just as much as my PSP. I think the japanese feel the same way. So hush hush and let be.
