FIRST! Start your bitching.
Congratulations for being first! W00t!
Thank yeh, thank yeh.
i am guessing it isdue to that game-breaking glitch
is not due for the bug, is due for the ending and the master pokemon sora
game breaking bug is victorious!
Eh, doesn’t effect me. I’m still getting it day 1.
And yet it’s still in the number 2 spot, beaten out only by Super Robot Wars.
I don’t know whether that says bad things for the Japanese game market, or good things for Kingdom Hearts. Either way, it says SOMETHING about the state of things over there…
Wow…80% drop and still second?
Sickr, u make it deem like a big deal when the game only went down one spot. When I read the title I thought it fell a the way to the bottom
2nd place is bad?
Yes, quoting the great Ricky Bobby: “If you ain’t first you’re last”.
I bet the sales went down because everyone is thinking there will be a Final Mix for it.
Surely it’s because everyone who wanted it got it during the first week of release? Don’t know why this is such a shocker. Wow, looking at those charts, 3DS is really really winning – 6 games in the top 10, and beating all the big consoles by a wide margin in the hardware charts. Wish I lived in Tokyo, would probably get 50 streetpass hits a day. :P
This means that every other game’s sales also went down.
I guess that’s why it’s called “Dream Drop”.
PS VITA IS UNDER 9000!!!! WHAT 9000!!!!
Aw 80% thats sad but its still in second place poor3D dont worry i have you pre-ordered and will play you all day from day one! You are still awesome! *thumbs up and smile* i am mac and i aprove of this message!
I’m still getting it. Btw, I love how the 3DS is dominating over there :)
Does japan know that psp have a successor?
It’s still number 2. I was expecting it to be lower due to the title of this article.
