        1. It’s great for kids and adults. When I was playing Animal Crossing: City Folk, I stumbled across an online community called Animal Crossing Community.

          I’m not sure how active it is now since a few years have passed since the last Animal Crossing release, but it always had a ton of adults looking to play with other adults. Pretty serious about the game too. Ages 18 to even up into their 60’s.

          Quite remarkable. I’ll likely be revisiting my account there once New Leaf comes out. =p

    1. We keep on telling people that the xbox line is only really popular in the US like FORD motors lol. Around the world it is Nintendo and Sony; wait! The US is run by Nintendo as well lol.

  1. Nintendo has this generation on lock. If you are blind to this fact, wait and see what 3DS and the Wii U do in Japan from now onwards.

    1. 3 keywords “do in Japan”.. What is a hit in Japan isn’t (and is seldom) a hit in the west by default. Sad but true…

  3. It’s nice for Aeolus’s PS3 ( Am happy for I like Sony as a second gaming company to Nintendo )did pretty well, where are VITA games though?

  4. This is the list I read when I want to regain faith in humankind… Especially since the shitfest called VGA.. Oh I so need to read this after that, otherwise I might’ve dropped the bomb..

  5. Anyone else think luigis mansion will be out before animal crossing in the states? Do you think it’ll hurt luigis sales if animal crossing come out before?

  6. Microsoft will become irrelevant next gen as a console developer, they should stop and become third party if they should not even jump shit from the video game industry at all. This is because they do not deliver anything that can’t be delivered on other systems. I think how well multiplat run will become less relevant next gen and exclusives moreso, and this will hit hard on the x-bpx brand as they lack good exclusives worth paying up the cash for a whole system for.

    They could repair this however by making some new x-box exclusive IPs in genres that tickles the asians fancy to try to gain a wider global audience, if they fail with that I am afraid that it is the end for the x-box. IT IS DOOMED!

    This is my analyze of the x-box brand according to this list. What do you think? Do you think I could get a job as an analyzer?

    1. Very correct, especially if the PS4 releases at the exact same time as the Xbox720. Microsoft will be in trouble. People Forget Nintendo still has Zelda, Metroid and a whole bunch of Mario galaxy 3D to unleash. Plus 100s of other IPs they own. Sony too has game exclusive power.
