This was a low budget game and sony already said they were happy with the sales, and im not entirely sure where u get the info is 100% accurate, does it take into account those who bought it on PSN?

and the live action trailer got around 5,000,000 hits... I figured that'd sell... and I actually saw a lot of commercials, which is rare for sony.


Well, it was on the front page. But just because people view it, that doesn't mean something. Also, you saw many commercials? That can't be the same for everyone. I've only seen the Robot Chicken Ad of PS All-Stars & now I'm seeing the live action ad only on night on Adult Swim, and that's only because they partnered for that Robot Chicken ad which now they bring out the live action ad.

 

It's only been around a month & like the others said, it didn't include digital sales. There is still the rest of December & then the Japan release.

I'm a bit worried that this game won't do well in japan. :/


All people have to see is that there's characters known on Japan. PaRappa the Rapper, Spike, and Heihachi. Their games (PaRappa is past but he's known from the past) are well-known on Japan, so that'll show some interest. As well as maybe the other chars.

Are you guys serious? It DEFINITELY will sell in Japan. The game has the little cat Toro Inoue who is Japan's beloved mascot and their Mario. Japan has like a creepy fetish for Toro...

If this info is from VGchartz than dont believe it. this is like the 6th time ive said it, this site says games that have sold very well (like MvC3) have only sold around 60k... that is incorrect. Do not believe this information. The fact that this site has it already up at 220k is good news.

It does not include Digital sales. It is #2 on the US store at the moment. Also, Christmas is around the corner and it has not released in Japan. 

 

I would expect, by the end of January, a little under a million total

Eh.  I don't think it'll be that high personally...  I want to hear official digital sales numbers somehow

Normally publishers release sales at the end of the fiscal quarter. Expect it to appear soon after the holiday season. I would say 700,000-800,000 is a fair estimate since Japan is a fairly good sized market and digital sales are growing every year.
