    1. Thats cuz this is Japan wanted.

      PS3 is Japanese which is why it’s most popular.

      Xbox dominates in USA because it’s american.

    1. Guess what? They look like great games as well. Surprising I know! I mean, of all the games with dragon in their name, the ones in the top ten *gasp* are some of the best games coming this year. It seems top tens are coincidential that way.

        1. Of course!!! and they will be more fail when they sell millions of copies and you will keep posting hate comments like this ;D Especially for Dragon’s Dogma, a game i feel will be top the days it comes out.

        1. Microsoft sucks… they ruined Flight Simulator… microsoft flight is so childish.

          Also Rare sucks now cuz their making kids kinect sports.

        2. If you’re talking about the trailer of Dragon’s Dogma, you’re correct, is from Capcom. Many say that it will be the spiritual succesor of Demon’s Souls/Dark Souls so, if it will be as hard as either of these two, it will sell, you like it or not because they’re a type of game that’s selling nowadays

      1. depends on what the Wii U and 3DS are planning on bringing to the table. that plus if the vita finds success. i would also mention the 360 but japan doesn’t seem to care too much about it

        1. Fanboys don’t look the entire picture.
          I’m a Nintendo fanboy, but I’m not blind, I know that’ll be many Sony system’s games, but I think that this list will change after E3, maybe some Vita, 3DS and WiiU games, maybe also PS3.

  1. Damn all thoae games sound like fun. I know japanese make the games, but whats so hard about putting up subtitles or dubbing the games and bringing them to the west? Its not fair.

  2. Sense monster hunter tri g (i think thats what its called) I think monster hunter 4 should be on the wii u instead, and a monster hunter 4 g could be on the 3ds. :)

    1. As much as I want MH4 to be on the Wii U, I don’t think Capcom will restart their game production on the 3DS just to bring it to the Wii U. :/


        1. You never played it.

          Ok if i said to you do you like God Of War… you would hate it because it’s a PS3 only game.

          1. Actually, I would say I don’t like it because it is a slow hack and slash wanna be puzzle game that people compare to Zelda and Ninja Gaiden series. The fact that it is a Sony only title has nothing to do with it. I own a ps3, psp, wii, 3ds, and an xbox controller for my pc; having predjudice for a system and it’s company is retarded. If you are going to hate something hate the company that produces half-baked games that are terrible and are only big because of expensive ad campaigns and paid off magazine reviews.

  3. Its silly how all the games on this list which are for PS3 are likely to be on XBox 360, as in Dragons Dogma as mentioned in the story above, but then why not mention that on the list?! Anyway im glad Wii has at least 2nd place, and a 3DS game to boot!!!

      1. 3DS is winning most sales in the WW chart when i just checked.

        Xbox is best selling in USA currently behind 3DS.

        1. What are you talking about? I’m pretty sure Microsoft has been leading in sales in the USA. I could be wrong, but I’m too lazy to do my own research lol.

  4. The only game i want so far this year is Skyrim: GOTY Edition…. At least until i see whats announced at E3 2012.

    (If Bethesda gives a release date for it this year)

      1. Skyrim has the most over used joke of all time.

        This should be for you.

        I used to love Xboxes, but then i took a PS3 to the knee!

  5. siegfried von schroider

    get a life people your playing with casual and anoying games just like super mario or ratchet and clank.your horrible

    1. Get out of here, troll. You can’t just say stuff about how Nintendo sucks and Microsoft wins, no one’s opinion will change at all about Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft. You can’t expect someone to go from “Nintendo WINS!” to “Nintendo SUCKS!”. Get out of here and play your Call of Duty or your Black Ops.

      Sickr, please ban this troll.

            1. siegfried von schroider

              if is that you wish then i will not troll.i will pisse you of. fuck you,you are a little girl who plays zelda and starfox at a nintendo console and both of them are horrible with horrible graphics

    2. siegfried von schroider

      MICROSOFT kicks asses,sony fails as always and they are huge copcats and nintendo makes games for litlle girls and they are boring

          1. I’m a serious gamer but i have a PS3 and Wii.

            I have a Wii for games like Metroid Prime 3.

            Also look at my name I’m a serious gamer. Also if you knew english you would notice you spelt serious wrong.

            PS3 is way better then Xbox all my friends had Xbox but they switched.

        1. True i remember with N64… Conkers Bad Fur Day, Golden Eye.

          It’s gone now cuz Microsoft owns it! D:

          Kinect Sports is what Rare makes now! :(

        1. Apple is an amazing company, and you made fun of a company who’s previous CEO, Steve Jobs, died back on October. The iPad and the iPhone were – and still are – amazing products. Apple thinks of everything and innovates. Microsoft copies and copies. Windows is a copy of the Mac, Windows Phone 7 possibly from the iPhone, and more.

          1. siegfried von schroider

            as you said ”WERE” now steave jobs is dead and apple is usless and bad,microsoft is now da biggast computa company!!

          2. Apple is a controlling, dictatorship. They oppose open source and trample on freedom programming.

            Jailbreaking faught for YEARS to help people “own” their apple-built hardware, and was finally deemed legal.

            I have no respect for apple. Yes, good hardware, but they run the company like a group of Nazis, and treat the free world of technology like POWs.

            PS: This is an obvious exaggeration, as many suffered significantly more, and apple does not actually “gas” the competition.

    afterlife fools,the consoles except from xbox are horrible with horrible stories and graphics especially ps3

    1. I don’t understand this people, if you like the Xbox, fine, you dont need to throw shit to other consoles. After all you haven’t created Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo.
      And before telling to other people to get a life, get yourself a life, cuz you’re losing time bothering people you dont even know. What’s the problem if they spend 600$ for an Atari it’s their money so stop fucking.

  7. And notice only 1 is 3DS, and 1 is Vita. Only, 3DS has games already out… Vita is soon to launch, and only ONE on the top 10 most wanted? That does not fair well for them.

    1. siegfried von schroider

      3DS doesnt have real 3d,psv is a gameboy advanced with more powerfull graphics and horrible games and xbox has the best games ever made and better than nintendo’s 64 including that ocarina of time thing

    2. siegfried von schroider

      o yea i forgot to mention that ocarina of time realy SUCKS and its HORRIBLE with horrible story and controlls including with music which is satanic

    1. Microsoft copied apple 2. True fact cuz apple 2 was out before Microsoft started.

      Also im using a mac not a pc.

      Microsoft operating systems are a apple rip-off and Micros operating systems are bug-full

      I’ve never experienced a bug issue or any of my games freazing with my apple.

      My PC i had before was horrible with games, it always froze playing spore and yes it was a windows runing horrible windows operating system. Spore never froze with my mac.

  8. ride a 10 speed everywhere guy

    this guy is mad cause apple ipad graphics is better than microsoft xbox360 nes has better graphics than them both

  9. Why no big news recently Sickr?

    When will Nintendo tell the release date and price for Wii U in Japan?

    They usually do it 6 months before release.

    1. Nintendo has said multiple times that all will be revealed at E3. Oh, and that 6 months thing is complete BS. The 3DS price + release date were announced 2 months prior to launch.

      1. Nope.

        The Japanese 3DS price and release date was announced back September 2010 then was released end of February.

        So thats a clear 5 months before launch.

  10. Most wanted games for me: (not necessarily in the same order)

    The Last Guardian (PS3)
    The Last of Us (PS3)
    Dragon Quest X (Wii/WiiU)
    MGS3D: Snake eater (3DS)
    Luigi’s mansion 2 (3DS)
    Animal Crossing (3DS)
    Kid Icarus up rising (3DS)
    Heroes of Ruin (3DS)
    Professor Layton vs Ace attorney (3DS)
    Xenoblade (Wii)

      1. I can’t give up! I’ve bought my PS3 only because I’m a huge fan of Fumito Ueda’s work. i’ve been playing a lot of games on my PS3, but The Last Guardian is the most wanted of all time!! =D

  11. *Grammargruß* goes here.

    The title should read: “HERE ARE* The Ten Most Wanted Games In Japan”…

    Sincerely, the Grammar Nazis!


  12. Oh man Nintendo sure did lose a lot of spots. If they released a 3D pokemon game (sequel to Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness perhaps?) it would sell 3DS hardware units like mad as well as be a beast in software sales. Most people in Japan would move on from wanting a Vita to a 3DS and buy one for Pokemon. That’s what I would do if I were Nintendo anyways.

  13. Ah, I love Monster Hunter. The first game I’ve played was Tri, so I hope that they bring MH4 to the Wii U. Even if they don’t I will buy it for the 3DS.
