DS and PS2 always clean up in Japan's charts. DS especially.

This is this first 360 game to break the top 10 i think. Not sure about Blue Dragon though.

Good for Gears, but this isn't the first time 360 software has cracked the Japanese weekly bestseller list.

Early on Ridge Racer 6 hit #20 in 12/05 with 27,500 sold and Dead or Alive 4 hit #10 a few weeks later with 55,250.

Since then Dead Rising hit #10 with 21,500 sold, Dead or Alive Xtreme hit #7 with 45,250 sold, and Blue Dragon was the biggest success so far hitting #5 with 73,250 sold. Lost Planet also had a respectable 33,000 sold but it was during a holiday week and only made it to #31.

While no 360 title has matched the early success of DOA3 for XBOX, the number of titles making the top 10 has already improved. XBOX had 2 big sellers (DOA3, and Halo) at launch, and only one after that (DOA Beach Volleyball the following year.) In contrast, 360 had a weaker launch but has shown growth in the following year... and now with Gears, beyond.

MGS games sell well, but have never been huge sellers in Japan (compared to titles like FF.) MGS4 should easily sell more than any 360 game, but based on sales of the former MGS games, could pale in comparison to the more popular PS2 or Nintendo games.

Biohazard is Resident Evil. It will be on both systems. Capcom has begun to establish itself on the 360. It could be a scenario like Resident Evil 4 which sold 400,000 on PS2 and 200,000 on Gamecube.

Funny this game is #1. I asked a friend about it who is heavy into this genre and he said it was horrible compared to FF or some of the other RPG titles out there.
