    1. Sony and Microsoft will have rot from their cores long before then, thus leaving Nintendo the only option for home consoles, likely buying the Sony and Microsoft (home-console) rights in the process. They’ll probably merge and form a super power. (Then again, Nintendo already is a super power!)

        1. To live in a world with no variations ? I like Nintendo as much as all you, but I want to play other thing then Mario and Zelda. Nintendo is my favorite, the others are there to make a market.

          1. Yeah, but if Sony and Microsoft weren’t there you would still get your great 3 rd party games, but just on a Nintendo console. Add that to Nintendo’s exclusives and you have the perfect console.

            Wii U could be that if done right.

  1. Not even one Vita or xBox game? … Not as surprised about xBox, but congrats Nintendo.
    (and way to hang in their PSP!)

      1. You notice how Resident Evil Revalations is up at position 5 for total sales even though it was only out for about a week in Japan

  2. can i see some american sales? or for that matter world wide sales? i mean its pretty obvious nintendo is selling well in its own territory.

    1. 1. [360] Call of Duty 3
      2. [PS3] Call of Duty 3
      3. [360] Skyrim
      4. [PS3] Skyrim
      5. [NDS] Call of Duty 3

      all seriousnes aside (kidding)
      sales in the US for video games have dropped,
      but CoD3 reached $1Billion earlier last month.

        1. I think he was being sarcastic (overdid it though). If you’ve ever played CoD 3, you’d realize the game is absolute crap. It didn’t have the replayability of Counter Strike, Quake or Halo (talking about CoD as a whole up to CoD 3 by the way), and was being wiped by its only competition (in the whole, yearly FPS update market), Battlefield. Then CoD 4 came out.

          Anyways, him calling MW3 CoD 3 is an insult to how bad MW3 is… in his opinion.

    1. It’s Just Dance Wii, the first edition in Japan. It has around 20 tracks from the Original Just Dance, Just Dance 2 and Just Dance 3. The Rest are Unique tracks of japan music (Pop, rock and so). Its a lot complex (harderd) than the Just dance we play in America or Europe :p

      1. Out of the two Monster Hunter games (MH3G, MH4) i’d say Monster Hunter 4 has the biggest chance of being localized. But then again what do I know, i’ve never even played a single game in the series. I’m just going by what I know.

  3. Aww no Vita… This is fucking awesome! The only way you could even pay me to buy a Vita is if I had a Bioshock, Monster Hunter, and Dead Space game for the system in my hand.

    1. Pay you to buy a vita?? you better look better than megan fox, and give up that ass after a date at the mall XD cause i dont see any other way youll be getting a vita then XD

        1. really? it looks like a a dragon to me.

          Yours reminds me of a purple Ganon from LoZ II Links Adventure (ganons face on the Game over screen)

    1. Please don’t overdo this video, it was fitting at first but now it’s getting overdone. This may be your first time posting the video, but, frankly, I don’t see your username or how many times you’ve spammed it; all I see is a bunch of “Mr. Bison YES” videos, and the last one I’ve seen has your username next to it.
