Japanese daily sales for the 27th...lots of new titles.

Radiata Stories (PS2, Square Enix) - 152,000 units
Another Century's Episode (PS2, Banpresto) - 130,000 units
Biohazard 4 (GC, Capcom) - 117,000 units
Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner 2 (PS2, Atlus) - 39,000 units
Death by Degree Tekken: Nina Williams (PS2, Namco) - 24,000 units
Catch! Touch! Yoshi! (NDS, Nintendo) - 23,000 units
Memories Off After Rain Vol. 1 (PS2, Kid) - 9,500 units
Shinki Gensou: Spectral Souls II (PS2, Idea Factory) - 8,300 units
Soukyuu no Fafner (PSP, Bandai) - 7,600 units
Space Battleship Yamato: Ankoku Seidan Teikoku no Gyakushuu (PS2, Bandai) - 6,900 units
Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory (PSP, Hudson) - 6,400 units
Shinki Gensou: Spectral Souls II Limited Ed. (PS2, Idea Factory) - 6,300 units
Tantei Jinguuji Saburo: Shiroiei no Shoujo (GBA, Marvelous) - 6,200 units
Kawa no Nushi Tsuri: Wonderful Journey (PS2, Marvelous) - 5,900 units
Project Altered Beast (PS2, Sega) - 4,200 units

Altered Beast...LOL! I think it's official: Everyone is sick of Sega's crap.

Some decent sales, though nothing spectacular. Radiata Stories did better than I thought it would. Never heard of the #2 seller. Would have liked to see DDS2 do a bit better, but I guess that's not bad for a cheap sequel. Only on the GCN could a massively hyped RE title debue at #3.

Not terribly. 29/40, I think.

Still, apparently there are plenty of things to pick on in the game.

What's sad is that the game was in development for like, 2 years, and it still came out horribly.

In non-related news, there has yet to be a PSP game that's sold better than a DS game thus far. Not that I expected Soukyuu No Fafner to do that well in the first place.

Third best anime in japan my ass.

I guess the announcement of a PS2 port did hurt RE4 sales for the GC...

It's surprising that Another Century's Episode beats Biohazard 4, RE4 supposed to be the killer app and ACE is not even in the Japanese most wanted chart at any time.

I don't think people are sick of all of Sega's "mediocre" crap. They just don't know how to market their games anymore. Especially in NA.

It's just one day worth of sales right? I imagine the hottest titles would get the people who rush in on day one to buy them, while the lesser buzz titles will have people coming in later on.
