Default Xbox 360 in Japan: Top 30 game sellers since launch

Quote:
Has Japan taken hold of the Xbox 360? Blue Dragon comes out on top, with 2008's Tales of Vesperia not far behind.

Despite the small user-base, 2006's Blue Dragon (released in 2007 outside of Japan) is still the Xbox 360's best seller at over 200,000 units.

The Xbox 360's only 2008 title to penetrate Japan's top 100 software sellers, Tales of Vesperia, takes second place.

The Last Remnant had impressive first week sales at 101,000 copies sold, but the title failed to make a storm afterwards, reaching only 134,611 total.

Japanese style RPG's are of course leading the way for the Xbox 360 in Japan, with its Western big hitters, such as Halo 3 and Gears of War, making nothing more than a whimper.

As well as the top 30 software sellers, you'll also find Xbox 360 hardware sales from launch below (provided by Famitsu). Lets hope 2009 holds bigger things for the Xbox 360 in Japan.

Its nice to see the hardware do better each year. By the time the next xbox comes out maybe it will be able to go head to head with the PS4 and Wii 2.

Not if MS ONLY continues to rely on Mistwalker as a Japanese exclusive studio. With the Xbox you had N.U.D.E., Magatama and Phantom Dust as their direct products as well as Blinx. WTF do you see now besides Mistwalker for Japanese product under them? NOTHING! It's idiotic.
