    Nice job MS, you just passed the 500 unit sold bar in Japan. Come on, get me to 1000, do something!!!!!!

    I don;t know… how yeah. What about making a Japanese IP for Japan, wait and see the demand for US and Europe and release if the demand is strong? I don;t know maybe more MS sold in Japan?

    This is incredible how Dragon ball Z is still a great attraction, it must be over 30 years old already.

    @2 LOL, raging format biased fanboy.

    Increased sales during Christmas shocker. It means nothing if the software doesn’t sell and if it still fails to turn a profit.

    @5 He’s upset because people weren’t taking notice of the increased sales of the Wii U.

    @5 – It’s part of his schtick. He likes to say that just because we’re not looking to give Iwata a good and proper rim job that we all somehow hate the company. It’s best to just ignore Francis, really.

    He runs a second-rate Nintendo fan site that masquerades as a general videogame news site, in order to covertly push his system bias. He’s to Nintendo fanboyism what Rupert Murdoch is to extreme right wing lunacy.

    That had nothing to do with my comment, and I suggest you watch your mouth internet tough guy. I own and play far more games than you idiot.

    Nintendo sales been increasing since the price cut in October, so have a seat. And why isn’t the Vita’s sales raising as much as the Wii U’s then….holidays right? lol

    Nintendo selling plenty of software in Japan. And the 3DS is making up what the Wii U isn’t doing.

    @7

    LOL, talk real tough over the internet, but I’ve seen you. You’re a skinny little bitch in real life.

    Awwwww…Methinks I touched a nerve. Little Franny just challenged me to a fight…over the internet. Right after accusing me of being a keyboard warrior.

    Hahahahaha.

    I know I’m skinny, but you still aren’t going to do anything about it, so shut up and sit down, and go clean the stains out of your Tingle onsie.

    Unless you’re proposing we go at it on Youtube, in which case, you might just kill me with laughter.

    Don’t be coming at me all Wendy O. Williams when your ass is Katy Perry.

    Not sure whether or not I’m misunderstanding you but you do realize that Christmas, though celebrated to a degree, is NOT a national holiday in Japan right? BUT… They do celebrate the New Year rather heavily.

    -Little Franny just challenged me to a fight…over the internet. Right after accusing me of being a keyboard warrior.

    Exactly where did I challenge you to a fight? I called you a skinny little bitch in real life. Which you then agreed.

    -I know I’m skinny
