And some people doubt MH3 will make the Wii extremely harder to find in Japan.

why not? didnt 360 fanboys fill SW with threads when 360 outsold PS3 for a couple of weeks in Japan (you were one of those happily posting comments in such threads)... I having both consoles were also happy for 360 to see it gain some more attention, though it didnt last long..

oohh i guess fanboys dont like seeing the Top20 charts with not even 1 360 game... considering 360 is the RPG console to own and Japanese like rpgs :)

I'm from EU but i also check out how games/systems are doing in other regions... or fanboys dont include the nearly 900,000 360 units sold in Japan when they count global 360 sales to show the gap compared to PS3 ????????????

No ,I'm the one that polled people from every region to find out if Japanese gamers cared about what systems sold well in NA and EU and vice versa. Nice try though...

You should, because if it doesn't sell in NA, it practically doesn't exist. Afterall, the Sega Saturn sold well in Japan and was a resounding success, right?

Please, you have to compare a whole continent against 1 country. The US is bigger and if it doesn't survive there, it won't survive period...

No EU is bigger as pointed out by the link.

Face the reality, US is not the biggest market anymore.

Lots of things survived with the lack of US support. Sega Saturn for one.

Would you prefer to compare to every small country?

EU stands for European Union, not Europe.

Europe makes more money because of the higher prices but the NA is still the bigger gaming market.
