Not a joke thread, actual information from a Kotaku article.

Defeated. Beaten. By boobs. While Mario Kart Wii posted healthy numbers across the country during its first week on sale, in more discerning Akihabara shops, the game was outsold by PSP erotic game title Bokudake no Kajitsu ("Only My Fruit"). The "game" is actually considered an UMD video and hasn't been approved by Sony or even been rated by CERO, Japan's ESRB. But since it uses interactive menus, Bokudake no Kajitsu can be played like a typical point-and-click PC eroge, complete with animated "event scenes." According to shop Messe Sanoh's sales chart, MK Wii was outsold by two PSP titles:


1. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G
2. Bokudake no Kajitsu
3. Mario Kart Wii


Clearly Nintendo has underestimated Akihabara shoppers. Needs more monsters, more jubblies, less kart.

I've actually seen all kinds of unofficial porno-sex-esque "games" for PSP and PS2 here in Japan - and they sell them at almost every GEO and bookstore.

Well, that's based off of one retailer, not the whole of Japan. MKWii sold like 600 thousand and was the biggest first week in the series history according to the Famitsu chart.

But those wacky Japanese really are a bunch of horny bastards :P

Uhmm, it's store sales rankings, from one store. It's like Amazon but a lot worse, as this isn't even a major retailer.

It probably still was, MH has been out for about 3 weeks now, so anyone saying it's been beaten by it is stupid, of course it's been beaten so far it's been out longer...

i kno but im just saying as reference because everyone is basing one stores sales rating on all of japan's sales and thats not true. MKW was the top seller then MH and I dont know how well that other nonsense sold over all of Japan.
