    PSP sales up 100%, Vita sales up 50% a bit more than a slight upturn, surely? Then again Golden Week is coming up…

    Operation Raccoon City tops the charts? I can’t believe it. I guess true Resident Evil fans only live in the EU/US. XD

    I mean come on, don’t the Japanese hate shooter games? I know they like 3rd person shooter games more than FPS’s… but really? Quarter of a million in sales?

    @2 If the sales had gone from 12k to 8k I don’t think “slight downturn” would have been the phrase used either. Everything up bar the 3DS, was it a minor Japanese holiday or something?

    @ ALL – The post will be updated and more analysis added later.

    @2 being up 4,093 in sales is not 50% and compared to the way it has been sliding, yeah, it’s slight.

    @5
    “being up 4,093 in sales is not 50%”

    Isn’t it? What do you think it is? 4000/8000*100% = 50% increase on the previous week.

    @3: If Japanese Gamers wouldn’t like Shooters, Resident Evil Games wouldn’t sell there at all.

    ZING!

    @6 NVM I was going by addition and subtraction instead of percentages. So yeah you’re right. 8026 x 50% is 4013. Blame the American education system. I do every fucking day.

    ORC sucks. Therefore, Japanese gamers suck.

    Relax, i’m just kidding. But the game really does suck though.

    @7 Resident Evil isn’t a shooter but a survival horror game (that’s still a shooter). That’s why Resident Evil 5 sucked because it went too action orientated and not enough survival horror. ORC was just a shooter and that’s why it got bad ratings in the US (I don’t know about EU publications).

    ZING! :P
