Thought it would've done better in Japan
thewastedyouth (on 08 January 2013)
why are Japan sales so low, isn't this what they love??? wtf are they playing then?
DitchPlaya (on 02 January 2013)
Sad really, they reward us for supporting the franchise by taking it away to the PSP to make cheaper more Japanese orientated games. At least release it digitally and add tropies!
weaveworld (on 10 November 2012)
Over a million sold and no follow up on Ps3... that's a damn shame.
SnakeDrake (on 13 April 2012)
I calling it the most underrated (sales wise) PS3 game ever
MARCUSDJACKSON (on 19 February 2012)
god i still love this game. play'd it about 10 times, and would do it again without question.
pablogers (on 29 December 2011)
amazing, add trophies to a greatest hits version and you will got easily 500 k more
MrMofongo624 (on 18 December 2011)
if they release a greatest hits version it will sell nearly another million in its lifetime
binary solo (on 01 December 2011)
OK So does that mean we get a VCII & III HD collection now?
Yamaneko22 (on 03 November 2011)
Congrats for Valkyria!
shinhawk (on 16 October 2011)
Too bad it didn't sell well initially or well enough to be kept on the PS3.
Iveyboi (on 02 October 2011)
CHYEA BOI! 1M for a very deserving game!
axumblade (on 25 September 2011) will likely be Mafia II...or Madden 12.
italo244 (on 23 September 2011)
Next: Yakuza 3.
italo244 (on 23 September 2011)
ethomaz (on 23 September 2011)
1 million
axumblade (on 20 September 2011)
1 million! w00t!
Turkish (on 17 September 2011)
Finally 1 million for the greatest rpg of this generation!
huaxiong90 (on 11 September 2011)
1 million at last!
coolbeans (on 05 September 2011)
That was aimed at binary solo's comment IF a VC II + III HD collection happened.
coolbeans (on 05 September 2011)
I personally think they should make it out to be more than a PS3 remaster. Make it turn out like a pseudo-remake, formulate the mechanics on PS3 from the ground up rather than just bringing the PSP controls over to fit the controller.
binary solo (on 05 September 2011)
Yes, well at >2x VCII on PSP Sega need to 1) bring VC II & III HD collection to PS3, and then release VC4 on PS3.
Mordred11 (on 02 September 2011)
Fufinu (on 29 August 2011)
Or add trophy support :)
MARCUSDJACKSON (on 22 August 2011)
well it sold over 1m now they sega can keep there word and bring it back to PS3.
zzamaro (on 19 August 2011)
@ryuzaki57 Are you really going to do that? If so, are you from the US? can you send me your second copy? I have very few PS3 games :(
Icey7 (on 16 August 2011)
True it's 5k short but I can live with rounding!! It finally hit the million!!!
ryuzaki57 (on 14 August 2011)
every VC fan have to buy another copy. 5K missing only!
leatherhat (on 11 August 2011)
1 miillion! Over tracked for sure but whatever, its 1 million!
Doobie_wop (on 09 August 2011)
1 MILLION SELLER!!!!! It only took three years and two sequels, but it finally did it.
coolbeans (on 06 August 2011)
No other game desperately needs the 1 mil achievement than VC imo. I'd probably buy it for my friend, even though he doesn't own a PS3.
huaxiong90 (on 31 July 2011)
So, so, so damn close.
binary solo (on 29 July 2011)
Bring that VCII and III HD upgrade collection to PS3 and bring this wonderful series back to life!!!
Simulacrum (on 21 July 2011)
italo244 (on 20 July 2011)
9.96k to 1M!
Qbro (on 15 July 2011)
still hate sega for releasing the squel on PSP, and thalk about discontinuing the series after the sale on PSP wak lacking...use your brain SEGA
Iveyboi (on 08 July 2011)
One of the most underrated game this generation
zzamaro (on 27 June 2011)
I was thinking of getting this game before but decided not to, but then I just read the recent article and it really seems an incredible hidden gem on the PS3. I also read that the second isn't very good so I'll pass, I don't play much my PSP anyway, I'm not big fan of handhelds...I can't stand to play on small screens
homer (on 24 June 2011)
I should probably get this game to help push it over the edge. :P
Icey7 (on 20 June 2011)
Come on! Just a little more!!
enditall727 (on 17 June 2011)
10,700 more till 1 mill
Yamaneko22 (on 31 May 2011)
Great game! One of the most fun games for stationary consoles this gen.
TT Makaveli (on 21 May 2011)
lol crawling to 1 mill just like Yakuza 3...both games deserve the 1 mill and even more!
velocista (on 20 May 2011)
almost there!!!
Fufinu (on 14 May 2011)
Crawling on ...
postofficebuddy (on 09 May 2011)
What's the threshold for greatest hits in Japan?
Boutros (on 06 May 2011)
It will do it for sure especially since "The Best" version is coming out in Japan. I don't expect big numbers but something like 10k-20k is not out of the question.
italo244 (on 06 May 2011)
Icey7 (on 28 April 2011)
This is the only game I keep coming back to check if it has hit one million.
homer (on 22 April 2011)
osamanobama (on 21 April 2011)
emeaa seems waayyyy off. it just flatlines at week 60
Carl2291 (on 11 April 2011)
Selling about 1k a week, so by the end of the Year... Million seller!
Carl2291 (on 31 March 2011)
Keep going Valkyria... Keep going :-)
green_sky (on 19 March 2011)
So close to 1 million. GO GO GO :D
NSS7 (on 18 March 2011)
16k sold so far in 2011. I expect 40k more. So at the end it gonna sold 1 million.
cory.ok (on 12 March 2011)
just finished playing it again, its a great game
homer (on 08 March 2011)
Will reach 1 million by years end.
Icey7 (on 07 March 2011)
Competed this when it first came out - one of the best games this generation. This game needs a re-release with trophy patch and all DLC included.
palitococo (on 04 March 2011)
Vamos everybody, just 40K more.
green_sky (on 21 February 2011)
Just ordered it from Amazon as it sold out or hard to find a new copy. Exited to try new kind of gameplay.
NSS7 (on 13 February 2011)
I think EMEEA is serously undertracked. Sales too low.
kivi95 (on 12 February 2011)
kivi95 (on 12 February 2011)
make a trophy paych and WOOP 1Million.
axumblade (on 12 February 2011)
Actually...going by the sales on a week to week basis, it looks like it will hit 1 million in early 2012.
Sisse1Player (on 11 February 2011)
valkyria chronicles
Serious_frusting (on 06 February 2011)
this game is epic. It deserves every sales it got
sabby_e17 (on 04 February 2011)
this will still take a couple of months to reach the golden number.
Reconnection (on 03 February 2011)
Should hit 1 mil very soon :P
Sh1nn (on 31 January 2011)
white knight
OLDf5k (on 22 January 2011)
awesome rpg shame it that sales are below 1 mlilion
Pho_Hybrid (on 14 January 2011)
@Gearbox Checked at my local Block buster, a huge variety of game, even crappy JRPGS and games from 2007 but no VC :(
Turkish (on 13 January 2011)
This is one of the best rpg's Ive played. This deserves the sales of Call of duty
Fufinu (on 08 January 2011)
It's at €11 at - why go for used?
NSS7 (on 01 January 2011)
EMEEA must be undertracked. VC2 which release for PSP already sold 91k
Fufinu (on 31 December 2010)
60k to reach 1 million!
Miguel_Zorro (on 27 December 2010)
@Pho_Hybrid - buy it used on RedFlagDeals.
Pho_Hybrid (on 21 December 2010)
@Gearbox lol ty nv thought about that but honestly if Best buy and Future shop doesn't have it why would block buster have it, yeh I see ALOT of game from 2008, most of them worse than VC, heck I still see Heavenly sword+Lair, yet no VC in FS or BB
Gearbox (on 17 December 2010)
blockbuster has it usually
Pho_Hybrid (on 10 December 2010)
anyone know where to buy this game in Toronto, Canada? No major stores sell it except EB games, and thats used for $44, but 1 year ago I saw it for $19 on sale :(
DeltaXIII (on 01 December 2010)
Great game. My main gripe would just be being scored solely on how fast few of turns you complete missions and not things like efficiency of defeating enemies or keeping your units alive.
tjallern (on 17 November 2010)
MORE support needed!!!!!
akuseru (on 30 October 2010)
Selling just a couple of 100 units each week! Go 1 million VC! You deserve it!!!!!!
Carl2291 (on 20 October 2010)
Go VC GO!!!
seruderu (on 21 May 2010)
second best game of ps3 after mgs4 for me.

story, characters, soundtrack, graphics, gameplay all of them are loveable
sabby_e17 (on 21 May 2010)
This could be overtracked in Americas.
kincuri (on 19 May 2010)
1 mil soon?! It back to selling around 1800 copies a week... It'll hit 900k soon, but I think 1 mil will be a while yet.
Methinks VC may have run its course, if only SEGA would announce a EU/NA/AUS release date for VC2!
kowhoho (on 16 May 2010)
Trophy patch would be godly. Please, give me an excuse to play through again!
droganmaster (on 12 May 2010)
If the trophy patch is released, the sales will overtake 1m soon.
Ravage27 (on 07 May 2010)
1 million soon :) I have a strong feeling it's slightly undertracked in others, sales are way too low in that region
akuseru (on 05 May 2010)
Even though I don't deny this selling bad in Europe, obviously because of the lack of localization, it has been saying 100.000 for Europe for at least 6 months now, at least. Are you telling me it has sold under 10k in 6 months? Yes you are =) It sold 40 copies in Others this (last) week!

SEGA should really release trophies for this game. It would boost the sales significantly I think. Do it now SEGA, DO IT!!!
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 28 April 2010)
sabby_e17 (on 25 April 2010)
Adjusted up?

1 million, here we come!
SilentPyramid (on 18 April 2010)
amazing game.already in my list of my fav
TT Makaveli (on 17 April 2010)
@jbrist: im suprised it sold 100k in Europe...i mean Sega never sub they games...not many people want to play a game in english all the time...same with Yakuza or Disgaea...
jbrist (on 16 April 2010)
I think this could very well be overtracked in US and undertracked in EU, I can't see it only selling 100k here D:

But oh well, say it isn't undertracked/overtracked, and 880k is pretty good, surely they made profit with that.
Swordy (on 15 April 2010)
Horribly overtracked in the USA unfortunately, just like Demon's Souls. Niche games like this don't sell half a million there, the 280k for Demon Soul's is already pretty good.
kowhoho (on 13 April 2010)
I think the DLC is well worth it. It's pretty cheap, and both the combat at the storyline are seen from fresh new perspectives. Pick 'em up, I say! :)
sergiodaly (on 12 April 2010)
got this game today... is any DLC for this game worth? i am anti-DLC so it better be very good or else i will ignore it... so what do you have to say?
thelifatree (on 10 April 2010)
They don't carry it anymore at best buy so I had to get it used. And that was six months ago. Great Game. Tho
homer (on 09 April 2010)
was this adjusted?
aragod (on 06 April 2010)
I somehow doubt that 100k in Others. Seems to be undertracked. It's sold out in most places in europe, it was chore to get one copy.
akuseru (on 20 March 2010)
Reach for 1 million!! This game is epic!!! Please, don't put the next game on the PSP. Oh, and Others only 100k? I know the game is in English only, but it must've sold more than 100k...
palitococo (on 19 March 2010)
1M this year? who gonna be a million seller first Demon Soul or this?
droganmaster (on 18 March 2010)
Got the new DLC last week. Nice extra weapon but the levels are too easy and short.
Bruno Muñoz (on 10 March 2010)
@sabby_e17 The mistake was calling it Valkyria Chronicles 2.
whofwhof (on 05 March 2010)
valkyria baby
sabby_e17 (on 04 March 2010)
Yeah, this will reach 1 million.

I think Sega made a mistake by releasing VC2 on PSP.
NSS7 (on 25 February 2010)
Keep selling 5-7k each week. Almost confirmed 1 million at this rate. Sega might released gold edition which include all DLC.
kowhoho (on 21 February 2010)
I got this game for Christmas and I'm ready to face Maximillian himself. Epicness to my left, epicness to my right.
FootballFan (on 21 February 2010)
hasnt sold anything in europe all year.
droganmaster (on 21 February 2010)
The new DLC will be released next week!
Ratix240sx (on 20 February 2010)
*double facepalm* heres a hint the first for months of sales a game's retail life are the most important.
ivanpgcs (on 20 February 2010)
In 10 first week in others 70K, and only 30k in one year ( the rest of 2009)?
novasonic (on 19 February 2010)
Daaamn.. I was gonna get a PS3 and this for my first game in a week or so, but I got laid off yesterday!
pslee (on 18 February 2010)
GupX19A (on 17 February 2010)
How'd this game get an extra 300k sold? It barely squeaked by 500k last I checked in September....
kincuri (on 13 February 2010)
Seriously... if you're wiling to judge and reject a game solely based on wether you can earn Trophies or not, you deserve to miss out.

Valkyria Chronicles probably my favourite game after 15+ years of gaming... its worth it even without trophies...
nen-suer (on 12 February 2010)
500K in NA!
superbeast1370 (on 04 February 2010)
@ Droganmasters

Don't You mean trophy whores?
droganmaster (on 03 February 2010)
Maybe after the trophy patch, the sale will boost again? I have many trophy fan friends...
nen-suer (on 02 February 2010)
looks like the leaked NPD numbers were fake

So give it a rest for now guys
kincuri (on 01 February 2010)
I think the PSP release was more SEGA wanting to get a sequel out ASAP. With the anime having finished showing just a few months ago, there would be too big a gap to produce a full PS3 sequel (18 to 24 months). The PSP, combined with anime cutscenes meant much faster dev times.

I think SEGA wanted to maintain momentum with the franchise.
routsounmanman (on 29 January 2010)
Valkyria Chronicles 2 being on PSP is an indication it didn't sell that much. As is Okamiden.
coolbeans (on 28 January 2010)
Has SEGA released sales numbers for the game? I'm fairly sure vgc has it set at more sold to consumers then the official numbers of what SEGA's sold to retailers.
Swordy (on 28 January 2010)
Canadians sure didn't buy over 300k copies of this game. It even got adjusted 1k up again, this is ridiculous. But okay, it's up to vgchartz what they want to do.
shaqpack609 (on 28 January 2010)
it is not overtracked...canadians love this game ;)
Christhor (on 28 January 2010)
NPD is really undertracking this title...
routsounmanman (on 28 January 2010)
Massive adjustment imminent :(
Khuutra (on 27 January 2010)

May still be behind Radiant Dawn after all.
Swordy (on 27 January 2010)
NPD just released some numbers, VC is nearing 150k in NA, not 480k. As I said, this is very overtracked.
reaver_x (on 23 January 2010)

well if they planned to offer cheap deals to gain more sales, they really shouldnt have
*greenlighted* VC2 for PSP.

and even without the deals, it still would have sold more on PS3. The PSP just has way too many pirates for this game or any game to sell well. (ex. Chinatown wars)
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 22 January 2010)
i think it has outsold LO in America also
Ratix240sx (on 21 January 2010)
Do you lack basic logic skills? When do you think Sega decided to greenlight VC2? Last week? *face palm*
Zlejedi (on 21 January 2010)
Oh wow how did it get to 800k so fast ?
sanadawarrior (on 19 January 2010)
After beating this last night, this passed Valkyrie Profile 2 as my favorite JRPG of all time. Hopefully the PSP game and the continued sales of this help make a PS3 sequel a reality.
huaxiong90 (on 19 January 2010)
@Swordy: Ever hear of something called "legs"?
Swordy (on 18 January 2010)
This game seems to be really overtracked, before half a year it still was 500k or something like that, can't believe it sold that much in such a short period of time.
reaver_x (on 18 January 2010)

and do u realize that if the sequel were to come to PS3, it would reach the total sales of the first game in nearly half the time??
Xen (on 16 January 2010)
Just a little left to top Lost Odyssey...

vv888 (on 16 January 2010)

Just another "from failure to success" game.

And this one
Uncharted FW:0.13M
Uncharted LW:2.95M
Ratix240sx (on 15 January 2010)
do you realize how long its taken it to sell this much? It came out in 08 and its 10 now, do the math.
reaver_x (on 14 January 2010)
i no i sound like a broken record. but i cant for the life of me figure out why the sequel is on PSP, these sales are unbelievable for an SRPG. Cmon Sega wake up!!!
Dark Odin (on 14 January 2010)
190k to go... who knows...
krimoz911 (on 13 January 2010)
It's amazing that this game (a SRPG) is going to outsell the 360's highest selling JRPG.
sabby_e17 (on 11 January 2010)
I don't know if this can reach 1 million...

800k is all ready a massive achievement and 900k is guaranteed.
MarshmallowMan (on 10 January 2010)
Do you think it will hit 1M realistically?
nen-suer (on 10 January 2010)
800K! Woohoo

next stop 900K
Skeeuk (on 10 January 2010)
act 7 is very very hard, in fact it makes you put the game away in back of library, but ive done it now its easy when you check youtube direct from ps3 browser.
mibuokami (on 10 January 2010)
more more more! Our Empress require more sacrifice!
ShadowSoldier (on 10 January 2010)
badgenome (on 10 January 2010)
Wow, I didn't realize it had sold 800k by now. Totally deserves all that and more.
NYANKS (on 10 January 2010)
I am so proud that my quote is featured at the top of the page. I love this game, get to a million baby!
Carl2291 (on 09 January 2010)

Party, anyone?
drakesfortune (on 04 January 2010)
I don't know, I think this very well could hit a million by this time next year. It has such great word of mouth, and games like that have very, very long tails.
AgentTofu (on 03 January 2010)
A million could happen. Used copies are becoming harder to find. This is like this generation's Final Fantasy Tactics, right down to the sequel going to a portable system, and same composer!
yusuke93_ita (on 03 January 2010)
this will never hit the million, sales will be back to
Spedfrom (on 03 January 2010)
It has moved after all, if only for a very few hundred units every week. Rather strange...
Spedfrom (on 03 January 2010)
Weeks have gone by and yet the number for Others sales doesn't move an inch, even after all the hype. I'm guessing it's not correctly tracked.
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 03 January 2010)
who will stop valkyria now she is unstoppable
--OkeyDokey-- (on 03 January 2010)
Holy crap. This could actually pass a million.
dolemit3 (on 30 December 2009)
I am surprised that such a niche title brings so much emotion out of people. Who cares if it sold 200k or 400k in the US, we are getting a sequel already.
ethomaz (on 30 December 2009)
Famitsu said 223,214 for Japan.
huaxiong90 (on 26 December 2009)
Great legs.
italo244 (on 25 December 2009)
1 milion in 2010
axumblade (on 25 December 2009)
Regardless of what NPD says, the sales of this game are beast
Dark Odin (on 24 December 2009)
ok... maybe this is a little overtracked..
Boutros (on 24 December 2009)
50k this week *jaw drop*
SteveKishi (on 23 December 2009)
NPD only does the US, where as VG does Americas. Which is more than just the US. So it isn't necessarily over-tracked in the US.
Goodfella (on 21 December 2009)
Great software prevails.
Severance (on 20 December 2009)
everyone thought this game is going to "Tank" until that Tank got reinforced legs.

italo244 (on 20 December 2009)
1 milion in 2010?
droganmaster (on 20 December 2009)
Hope the trophy patch will be released.....Great US sales!
When the 4th DLC pack released in US version?
Gilgamesh (on 19 December 2009)
wow great sales
whatz3rname (on 19 December 2009)
"poor others sales."

It's only in english, that's why. Sad, but true.
axumblade (on 19 December 2009)
wow....1 million doesn't seem too far away now. 40k for a SRPG that's over a year
sabby_e17 (on 18 December 2009)
The game managed 100k in a month so 1 million is possible.
Dark Odin (on 18 December 2009)
poor others sales.

I wonder why...
Carl2291 (on 18 December 2009)
40k in NA this week, can it hit 50k+ on the big week? I bloody hope so!
velocista (on 18 December 2009)
Have a PS3 and don´t have this game....ho...please help your self!! buy this game now!! help reach 1M!!
kincuri (on 18 December 2009)
ok, I'm officially claiming that I played VC before it was cool... awesome sales for a well deserving game. I can't believe the growth in sales! Just a few months ago it was lucky pass 4-5k. Can't wait for VC2!
krimoz911 (on 18 December 2009)
only 120k till it surpasses LO
MetalGearSolid_4ever (on 18 December 2009)
Holy mother of god...
SaviorX (on 17 December 2009)
Makes you wanna cry.
It's the little exclusive that could.
superbaboonfacex (on 17 December 2009)
i am officially satisfied with the games sells!!
MarshmallowMan (on 17 December 2009)
Is there any chance this will get to 1M lifetime?
leatherhat (on 17 December 2009)
1 million come on!
THATGUY (on 17 December 2009)
now give us trophys. plz :)
reaver_x (on 17 December 2009)
oh wow 700k grats VC. Sega can plz make VC2 for PS3 instead?
nen-suer (on 17 December 2009)
yay, 700K

now to 800k
nen-suer (on 17 December 2009)
did almost 40K this week :O

hope they don't adjust it down again
d21lewis (on 16 December 2009)
Took me a minute to get passed the learning curve, but now I love this game. It's going to be all I play for the rest of 2009, I bet. I have a hard time letting anybody on my team die, though. I lost a scout last night and RAN to reset my console. She'd better still be alive!!
Ratix240sx (on 15 December 2009)
What are you talking about. Phantasy Star Portable just destroyed the lifetime sales of VC in Japan in one week....and with the cross promotion of both titles I have a feeling VC2 might do quite well.
pablogers (on 14 December 2009)
30k down??... cmon, why always in ps3 games!!!!!!
Carl2291 (on 14 December 2009)
Adjusted down 30k! :-( Noooooo!
Gearbox (on 13 December 2009)
this will sell so well on the psp, even tho software on the psp has a hard time selling. this is a perfect game for a psp?
mibuokami (on 13 December 2009)
Have just convinced another friend to get this game. I can almost TASTE 1 million xD
NeoMatrix (on 12 December 2009)
They could release VC2 on PSP in 2010 and VC3 on PS3 somewhere in 2011.
Or they could release VC2 on PS3 somewhere in 2011.
What would you choose?
velocista (on 12 December 2009)
Great!!! Let´s buy it people!! let´s talk to our friends that have ps3 to buy this great game!!
reaver_x (on 12 December 2009)
wow loving these sales. what the hell was sega thinking with VC2 on PSP??
NeoMatrix (on 12 December 2009)
It will hit 1 mln. in 2010 even without trophies.
Probably by the end of January.
Dgc1808 (on 12 December 2009)
If it gets trophies it might hit a mill, lol.
whatz3rname (on 12 December 2009)
Seems to good to be true... It will probably be adjusted down sometime in the near future...:/

st_muscat0 (on 07 December 2009)
.............................. AWESOME SALES! Go VC!
drakesfortune (on 06 December 2009)
How much do you think Sega wishes it was making the second game for PS3/360 now instead of the PSP. What a dumb move, Sega.
axumblade (on 06 December 2009)
46k this week?! Really?! That's insane! This game just won't disappear. :)
kincuri (on 06 December 2009)
Wow... it outsold some impressive titles this week!
krimoz911 (on 06 December 2009)
Will it ever pass LO ?
Zuhyc (on 06 December 2009)
simply amazing sales
elzumo (on 06 December 2009)
Another big week...I wonder if it'll keep this up through Christmas?
Carl2291 (on 06 December 2009)
Could it hit 50k on that big Christmas week in NA?

StockoPS3 (on 06 December 2009)
45K wow THAT IS AWESOME! 1 Million Nearly...
nen-suer (on 06 December 2009)
Valkyria 3 on the PS3 :)
Xen (on 06 December 2009)


leatherhat (on 06 December 2009)
Valkyria Chronicles is the future, now believe.
OmieeZ (on 06 December 2009)
very well indeed, but i think 1mil is not reachable
--OkeyDokey-- (on 06 December 2009)
It's biggest week ever in America! If this continues 1 million is possible!
NSS7 (on 06 December 2009)
At this rate it will surpass LO.
postofficebuddy (on 06 December 2009)
Looking at the sales trend I think this game can leg it to 1 million even if it doesn't make it during this holiday.
pablogers (on 06 December 2009)
45k ??? how !!. so a lot of people who didnt have a ps3 wanted this game... cmon sega, give me trophies and i buy the freaking game
shaqpack609 (on 06 December 2009)
numbers dont add up though....vgchartz needs to fix this
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 06 December 2009)
... Did.. Did this just sell 45k in NA?

shaqpack609 (on 06 December 2009)
will this game sell over a million?!
non-gravity (on 06 December 2009)

25k the week be4 bf, veryy nice
ZorroX (on 03 December 2009)
Probably will sell 50k this week due BF in NA.
1M is coming closer every week.
st_muscat0 (on 03 December 2009)
@Xen only in Malta I believe (although I'm not 100% on that being the only country). Also America should learn $$%%%$3 some other country/ies language that they will probably never go to or need just to please some idiot on already. Isn't it mandatory in schools? See what I did there?
sabby_e17 (on 02 December 2009)
Woah, 25k last week.
Xen (on 02 December 2009)
Europe should learn $$%%%$3 English already. Isn't it mandatory in schools?
Hero_time88 (on 30 November 2009)
It doesn't include a Spanish, Italian, German or French subs.
Ravage27 (on 29 November 2009)
i never understand why it did so badly in Others :( The setting is clearly WW2 Europe!!
leatherhat (on 29 November 2009)
Dem legs
Gilgamesh (on 28 November 2009)
Word of the mouth seems to be quite well with this game, last time I checked it was at 510K.
Ratix240sx (on 28 November 2009)
If these sales keep up, we just might get VC 3 on the Ps3. Now wake da fuck up europe.
SubiyaCryolite (on 28 November 2009)
Xen (on 28 November 2009)
25k this week... just below NG Sigma 2...


Viva la Valkyria!
st_muscat0 (on 28 November 2009)
superbeast1370 (on 27 November 2009)
I bet OutlawAuron fainted.
Carl2291 (on 27 November 2009)
Holy crap... 25k this week!?
nen-suer (on 27 November 2009)
viva la valkyria.....

next stop 800K
non-gravity (on 27 November 2009)
Sold more in America this week than in it's launch week?
VivaLaWiida (on 27 November 2009)
It really deserves it..
yusuke93_ita (on 27 November 2009)
tonio_13 (on 27 November 2009)
On the way to pass Lost Odyssey ?
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 27 November 2009)
25k in america
getrdone (on 26 November 2009)
19.99 at gamestop
Zucas (on 26 November 2009)
Just incredible how this game is selling like this this far away. You rarely see that for this kind of game but definitely some good word of mouth, good price, and some mainstream jumping on board with the game.
Aj_habfan (on 26 November 2009)
I can see these sales being lowered in the future. But what the hell do I know, let's just enjoy these numbers.
MontanaHatchet (on 26 November 2009)
In America, this sold more in its 55th week than in its launch week.

He he.

I love you Valkyria.
Pho_Hybrid (on 26 November 2009)
25k this week in NA ?
source plz?
darthdevidem01 (on 26 November 2009)
WOW 25K in NA this week!
onionpaper (on 20 November 2009)
I love this game!
Sisse1Player (on 20 November 2009)
If you like rpg-games, you have to play this game. This is pure gold.
Zlejedi (on 20 November 2009)
Well trophy patch would be cool. I'd have very good reason to play it again then :D
akuseru (on 19 November 2009)
Valkyria Chronicles is EPIC ! screw trophies
THATGUY (on 19 November 2009)
this game proved to me how much i like trophies. i like this but because it doesnt have trophies im not buying it
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 19 November 2009)
my thread about which wil top 600k has now an answer
Carl2291 (on 19 November 2009)
Sold another 11k this week.

REALLY want this to eventually reach 1 Million.
NSS7 (on 19 November 2009)
Confirm will outsell LO at this rate and possibly 1 million.
ZorroX (on 19 November 2009)
Wow, sweet legs in NA.
Like i said one month ago:
"VC definitely will be a million seller, since sales of the game increase as PS3 HW sales increase."

The only sad thing, the game wasn`t translated in main European languages for PAL release. In this case, i think VC would be already at 1M.
Zuhyc (on 19 November 2009)
11k in the us! Wow!
NSS7 (on 18 November 2009)
This week sell 8k.I hope it can outsell LO.
nen-suer (on 15 November 2009)
600K soon :)
kincuri (on 14 November 2009)
Bought a second copy the other day... Will soon be moving out and my brother pleaded with me not to take VC with me. I figured that i could never be so cruel...
Ratix240sx (on 13 November 2009)
Just picked this up along with a PS3 slim and I'm having a blast.
tonio_13 (on 13 November 2009)
Actually, I agree it's a shame that this game doesn't get translation. Sorry, but we don't ask for voices only subtitles for major languages.

However, i bought this game because it deserves it so much !
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 13 November 2009)
what the valkyria chronicles will outsell lost odyssey if it continues to sell like this
Xen (on 12 November 2009)
Approaching 600k quickly. Go VC baby!
whatz3rname (on 09 November 2009)
Yep, it's sad that people in Europe don't buy games that's only in english. It's a fact that almost have ruined the JRPG market (and other more niche markets) in Europe. English is a world language, learn it god dammit! You won't forget your native language...
KillerMan (on 06 November 2009)
Actually translations could be also one of the big reasons why this didn't sell more in Europe. I personally find it sad that some people (who understand english fine) don't play game if it is not in their own language. It is kinda silly.
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 06 November 2009)
250,000 IN NA very good sales for a srpg
Rawnchie14 (on 04 November 2009)
Translations to other languages cost them money. Unless translating to other languages will result in a huge difference in sales (which I doubt would be big enough), then sadly they just don't care.
st_muscat0 (on 30 October 2009)
@tonio_13 exactly, why should people who don't speak English or don't speak it very well be forced to just have to deal with it? I'd boycot it as well, surprised it actually 100K there considering that.
tonio_13 (on 24 October 2009)
This game have no translation except in english, in Europe countries it affects badly the sales.

I know lots of people who don't buy this game only because of that...
Xen (on 23 October 2009)
Did I mention how excellent this game is?
palitococo (on 23 October 2009)
He can at least make the 800K mark LTD. And yes u r right drakesfortune.
KillerMan (on 23 October 2009)
ZorroX: At least I had to search VC from finnish game internet shops to find it. I have never seen it in big supermarket ( Most people buy games). If the supply is same elsewhere in Europe I don't wonder these low sales.
ZorroX (on 22 October 2009)
WTF with Europe? The sales are terrible.
Atleast in NA VC is constantly selling 4-5k per week.
VC definitely will be a million seller, since sales of the game increase as PS3 HW sales increase.
RafaelOrix (on 19 October 2009)
Awesome game, wish it sold more. Sega deserves better sales with this game.
StockoPS3 (on 17 October 2009)
could sell a million maybe next year or year after...
drakesfortune (on 16 October 2009)
Ignore Ratix, he has no clue what he's talking about.

I guarantee you that this sold WAY better than Sega anticipated. They were drinking coolaid if they thought it'd do better than this. This is a huge hit for this genre on any platform.
palitococo (on 15 October 2009)
Ratix VC its one of the most succefully JRPG of this console generation. Its new IP, besides its a JSRPG, not a very popular genere.
st_muscat0 (on 11 October 2009)
@Ratix240sx two things wrong with your statement. 1st it sold 550K not 500K, big enough difference and 2nd if it sold so horribly how on earth is it getting a sequel if Sega lose so much money making this? And plus even if it wasn't the most profitable game ever it also paved the way for the amine as the game was basically just free advertisement for it and a good way to get fans of the game to watch the show as well, meaning more episodes will be made and more merchandise as well. Which in the end is all money in Sage's pocket.
Ratix240sx (on 10 October 2009)
@binary solo
500k is good......if that was only in one region....this is 500k world wide. That is horrible for a HD console game with a decent budget. This aint Disagea.
Cowboys4u86 (on 09 October 2009)
The sequel will have smaller sales on the PSP. They should've stuck with a PS3 sequel, hell the engine and everything is already there.
binary solo (on 08 October 2009)
Surely to goodness 1/2 a million in sales and climbing deserves a sequel on the originating console. Come on Sega.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 07 October 2009)
viva la valkyria
pariz (on 04 October 2009)
I finally got it! This game was one of the reasons I got a PS3. But I couldn't find it in english cause I am in Japan.
It cost me 5980 yennes, but I am quite sure that is more than worth it. :)
NSS7 (on 26 September 2009)
This keep ouselling SOIV and IU every week and LTD. TLR is next target. That game sold under 1k while VC sold 5k+.
kutasek (on 26 September 2009)
lol U.S. sales are going to pass Japan.
DragonLord (on 21 September 2009)
Finally picked it up at Walmart for $20.
Fame_Mcswagg (on 21 September 2009)
I keep trying to catch it in stock at Its only 20 bucks there!
NicholasCage (on 21 September 2009)

Sega of America said they are working on it right now. Hope they will release it by the end of the year.
Fame_Mcswagg (on 21 September 2009)
will this game get trophies?
Avarice28 (on 20 September 2009)

I believe this is under tracked due to the budget version sales not being included by Vgchartz.
pariz (on 20 September 2009)
This one, Uncharted and FF games are the reasons I got a Slim.
st_muscat0 (on 18 September 2009)
Just order my copy online about 2 days ago, better late than never.
TT Makaveli (on 18 September 2009)
i dont understand why their are not really Japan sales no more...i thought the Anime would help...Japan is crazy after animes thought it would bring the same sales like the US sales now!

also i got my copy yesterday...i played it 5 hours today and...fell in love with this game :D
Rawnchie14 (on 15 September 2009)
Valkyria Chronicles deserves the extra drive it's been getting in the states!
outlawauron (on 14 September 2009)
Oh, the japan preview has it spiking back up! Woo!
test (on 12 September 2009)
superbeast1370 (on 11 September 2009)
we're gonna surpass Japan soon.
Rasen Shuriken (on 10 September 2009)
wow HW sales push this game greatly in America..15000 in two weeks
TT Makaveli (on 09 September 2009)
Ordered it today from Amazon for 19.95...the days before it was at 45€ so i buyed it the fast i could :D
the only disadvantage is that it dont will be here until the 21st!
DarkFury (on 09 September 2009)
My GOTY 2008, easy. Here is for hoping for 1M lifetime sales. It richly deserves it.
Spedfrom (on 07 September 2009)
Bought it yesterday at a FNAC in Portugal for 30 euros! xD I picked up the game thinking it would be the same price of 70 euros and was so surprised I immediately put it under my arm! loool
meowface (on 06 September 2009)
This game just got reduced to under $55 in Australia, its getting a lot of fresh attention :)
TheConduit (on 06 September 2009)
I got my copy in JB hifi pretty close to the release day in Australia.
Best PS3/Xbox360/Wii RPG ever
Christhor (on 05 September 2009)
Wow, another bump in sales? How come?
KillerMan (on 04 September 2009)
I don't wonder about low EU sales. Niche genre and at least here you only can find game from some internet game shops. I have never seen this gem in any bigger store.
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 04 September 2009)
200,000 copies in america well done valkyria keep going
superbeast1370 (on 03 September 2009)
come on you A******s, we're close to surpassing JP sales.
BanoX93 (on 03 September 2009)
Sales are picking up! Let's keep'em coming!
outlawauron (on 03 September 2009)
7k this week in America!
jonnhytesta (on 02 September 2009)
yup the demo sucks, but the game is great like always.
binary solo (on 02 September 2009)
I hope with the general lift in PS3 HW sales this game will finally reach 100K in Others. And in time reach 750K world wide.
@ VivaLwWiida: you didn't see it coming?
Gearbox (on 01 September 2009)
@zaMy ahahah SAME
zaMy (on 01 September 2009)
i tried the demo and it sucked so i deleted it. i downloaded it again a few days ago, and i acctually got the controls this time

its acctually such a fun demo once you know how to play. Its sort of like Advanced Wars
VivaLaWiida (on 28 August 2009)
Ohh the ending made me almost cry, although it was a bit TOO cheesy :-D
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 24 August 2009)
VivaLaWiida (on 14 August 2009)
I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT when ... and I almost cried when Rosie sang this beautiful song. :-(
bknight (on 14 August 2009)
Love this game, wish it had trophy support.
Son1x (on 11 August 2009)
Probably since 2 regions were close to next (like from 0.10m to 0.11m) and they hit in a close space of time.
Pristine20 (on 11 August 2009)
I was about to ask the same thing
Vashyo (on 11 August 2009)
Got the game yesterday, it's really good and reminds me a lot of silent storm.
RageBot (on 10 August 2009)
I got it like three days ago, but didn't play it yet, I kinda practice my Taokaka combos and play NGS :X
Carl2291 (on 10 August 2009)
I bought this game like 3 days ago, and its already surpassed MGS4 as my Game of the Gen :-)
MetalSabe (on 10 August 2009)
It was a slow burn but it made it to 500k, nice.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 10 August 2009)
Holy crap! how did Valkyria Make it all the way up to number One so quick?
Vashyo (on 07 August 2009)
I finally ordered my copy, can't wait over weekend for it to arrive. :/
Xen (on 06 August 2009)
It's over 500k?

wah. nice.
FootballFan (on 05 August 2009)
Trophies are on the wa.....o wait there not :(

This game is great! I gave it a rent and really enjoyed it.
Zlejedi (on 05 August 2009)
I think getting ruhm on first play would totaly ruin difficulty level.
Skeeuk (on 05 August 2009)
should get to 600k soon
binary solo (on 03 August 2009)
@ Seraphic. You talking to me about extra chapters? If so, you isunderstand what I wroteintended. I meant you should play the DLC once you're at about Ch 4 or 5 in the main game. Because I figure you're only going to have a good grip on the game by that stage to be able to get through the Selvaria missions in resonable shape. Maybe even then Ch 4/5 might be a bit too soon.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 03 August 2009)
Yeah the Selvaria DLC is the best of the 3 by FAR.

But...i didn't get the extra chapters along with the trooper weapon ehh ruhm or whatever she holds around.

How do ya do it?
DaBuddahN (on 03 August 2009)
Very under appreciated game.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 03 August 2009)
VC is already around 30 to 40 lol.
binary solo (on 02 August 2009)
Just played the Selvaria DLC. Me likey the present you get for finishing the mission. That alone is worth the price. A tip for everyone yet to buy/play: Get the Selvaria DLC and play it as soon as you get to grips with the game tactics/strategy (probably around ch 4 or 5).
zaMy (on 02 August 2009)
I might get this game, I will try the second for PSP and if i like that I might get the PS3 version.
coolbeans (on 31 July 2009)
Why do people still rant about this selling one mil? It's getting a sequel so it's on the right course. Disappointing that it might not reach 1 mil, yes but there's been many games before this that have been undersold.
RageBot (on 28 July 2009)
Ordered the game today, I hope it will arrive in a week or so :)
Zlejedi (on 28 July 2009)
Don't worry 1 M might come at some point of time :)
I think that when they bring VC2 out they should bring $30 or $40 gretest hits edition in the west with all dlc included.
binary solo (on 26 July 2009)
It's official: 500,446 sales at week 65. Great stuff! Though we should be celebrating at least 1 million at this point; if the sales were a true reflection of game quality.
zaMy (on 25 July 2009)
I think I might get this game, its really cheap at some stores
iOWNyou (on 25 July 2009)
PS3 owners soon or later always apreciate GREAT AA games.
True gamers chose PS3.
FootballFan (on 24 July 2009)
Well i dont like JRPGS but im picking this title up. I advise you do the same.
Ramser (on 23 July 2009)
bought vc on sunday and i love it so far the anime is also really good.
Zezlar (on 22 July 2009)
I am very excited this game is getting some sales. This game deserves over 2M+ sales easy.
Zlejedi (on 20 July 2009)
Holy crap it's already at almost 500k really amazing.
Could be some of the most amazing legs ever on HD console.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 20 July 2009)
We need to make a VGChartz VC fan-club.

Im lazy and lack the effort, so... any takers?
binary solo (on 19 July 2009)
Still not at 500K yet just under 2K to go. Though I am certain Others is under tracked. By my calculations only about 100 copies of VC have sold in NZ so far. I can't believe I'm in that exclusive a club. Then again we are a small market.

Why does VC need trophies? it already has trophies: medals and mission grades. That's good enough for me.
Dgc1808 (on 19 July 2009)
I think VC2 is a bit of a stretch...

It's possible but it would really take some work and perhaps some advertising....
Rawnchie14 (on 18 July 2009)
I'm down with VC2 on PSP

Mindblowing how many people overlooked this awesome title though. It's not even right
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 18 July 2009)
Fer sure, 750 is very possible.
FootballFan (on 18 July 2009)
Wow at this rate its going to get nearer 750,000
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 16 July 2009)
lulz akuseru....

Just be happy were getting a VC2 AT ALL buddy!

Great games like VC normally dont get sequels, ALA Chaos Legion...
akuseru (on 16 July 2009)
Grats with 500,000 my beloved VC !!!!

If they add trophies I believe sales will increase a lot.. not that I would care though (about trophies, sales are nice)

I love my PSP, but WHY!!!!???!?!?!? I want PS3 tooooooo....
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 16 July 2009)
Lulz, VIVIA LA VALKYRIA ... 2!!!!
skiptomylou41k (on 15 July 2009)
the scans of the sequel seem a bit out of place though with the way the characters were acting...but that just may be because I haven't gotten very far yet into the game
skiptomylou41k (on 15 July 2009)
...hmmm i really thought this was going to be one of those rare games...i got it when they were selling for more inflated prices and now...*sigh*
XxXProphecyXxX (on 15 July 2009)
kincuri (on 15 July 2009)
Sequel announced for PSP! Hooray!
dsister44 (on 15 July 2009)
This is going to e my next Ps3 game
Dgc1808 (on 12 July 2009)
Got it 2 days ago... but I'm waiting to get home to play it... Which won't be until about a week and 2 days. So far I've just done the optional install and switched the voice overs to japanese. I also did the first battle which was pretty much a minor to tutorial.
gandenkris (on 11 July 2009)
This is such a great game I really hope this game reaches 1 million cmon guys just buy it you will not regret it
binary solo (on 11 July 2009)
This game has got to be undertracked in Others. The guy at the store I bought my copy from said it's selling pretty well at their store. OTOH this is the only store of 4 that I've checked that had the game for sale.
Dgc1808 (on 10 July 2009)
Getting mine today.
outlawauron (on 10 July 2009)
What story?
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 09 July 2009)
I've got a lil story to share about VC later, its good news! :D
NYANKS (on 08 July 2009)
We shall notstop until 1 million people have witnessed the glory of the Valkyria.
binary solo (on 08 July 2009)
Slowing sales in Japan (in line with low sales of PS3 there. But staying stong in US. Come on Others!!! I bought mine a week ago. I was worried I wouldn't like it as much as I hoped because I was so hyped by everyone on this site... Oh how could I doubt such a stupendous game. It is all I hoped AND MORE!!!! How can I play any other game after this. I should have played other games first then played VC because now everything will get compared to VC and will no doubt compare poorly.
TheConduit (on 06 July 2009)
In all honesty this is My favorite game of all time pushing my previous favorite Final Fantasy 9 down to number 2.

I really hope they make a sequel to this game in some form.

I urge all fans to go check out the anime as subbed versions can be found all over the net.

Go Valkyria
Agreatsplit (on 05 July 2009)
I want this but its still pricey in the uk.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 05 July 2009)
Yes now that im back i can begin praise of Valkyria again!

VIVA LA Valkyria!!!
Trent (on 04 July 2009)
Wow half way there
vykk8930 (on 04 July 2009)
Yeah, new dlc. That is a very good sign. Hope we end up getting.
Kaixes (on 03 July 2009)
This thing just keeps going and going...
Dgc1808 (on 03 July 2009)
I used to think this game would stop at perhaps 350K the most. Well done SEGA.
player1 (on 03 July 2009)
just add the trophy support and you will double the sales ;)
NoCtiS_NoX (on 02 July 2009)
Yay 500k and still counting.
LOL at the haters!
Theo (on 02 July 2009)
They could easily re-launch this game for the holiday season. It's not like it's out-dated or a bad game, people just don't know about it.
Catlana (on 01 July 2009)
Yup, a sequel would be nice. VC is definitely a great game.
terislb (on 01 July 2009)
"this pretty much flopped XD" WHO´S LAUGHING NOW?
--OkeyDokey-- (on 01 July 2009)
The magic half million.
whofwhof (on 30 June 2009)
we want a sequel
great game
TheConduit (on 30 June 2009)
hopefully with 500K this means there will be a sequel of sorts.

Say the alliance vs the empire
drakesfortune (on 29 June 2009)
I never thought this game would hit 500k. I'm glad for them that it did.
rukusa (on 29 June 2009)
wow, will probably reach around when everything is set and done, just looking at the graph it seems like word of mouth and graphs are really going up.
outlawauron (on 27 June 2009)
Wow. That's great news. It'll be past 500k in just a few weeks.
binary solo (on 27 June 2009)
Not so fast guys. Actual sales is 489K, still 11 K to go, this number is just an artifact of rounding. Still 500K is a certainty by first week in July.
yusuke93_ita (on 27 June 2009)
Barozi (on 27 June 2009)
500k is reason to celebrate !!!
wenlan (on 27 June 2009)
500K!! ~happy dance~
Sh1nn (on 27 June 2009)
YAY!! 500K
axumblade (on 26 June 2009)
500k once US numbers come in? Too bad that this wasn't officially made into a greatest hit yet. I think that could drive sales up even more for it.
scourge29 (on 25 June 2009)
i loved the demo
binary solo (on 25 June 2009)
OK 16K to go as at WE 13 June. WE 20 June should be 490K, WE 27 June 497K, WE 4 July 503K. That means the week I buy VC will be the week it cracks 500K. And it will be me who buys it :-)
Gearbox (on 24 June 2009)
yea my bad i had the view show 100 weeks and that way it only says 477,975
outlawauron (on 24 June 2009)
It has sold 484,023 to be exact. The number can be off as much as 14k because of rounding.
Gearbox (on 23 June 2009)
if u use the chart tools it says its only at 477 000 way off from 500k that way
Squall_Leonhart (on 23 June 2009)
Stones throw away from 500k :-)
nen-suer (on 23 June 2009)
Best RPG this far
Xen (on 23 June 2009)
Almost 500k! dood!
ocnkng (on 22 June 2009)
I am playing this now. Amazing.
Aj_habfan (on 22 June 2009)
Binary, the overall sales are the total of each region, which are each rounded separately. So the total can be as much as 14k off the mark.
BanoX93 (on 21 June 2009)
Thanks, Seraphic.

Just to give a heads up to all Valkyria fans, SEGA of America community folks will be launching an official VC community site. I'll give links as the time goes by.
binary solo (on 21 June 2009)
I just notice 100K for others. Excellent! Sequel for WW release confirmed!
binary solo (on 21 June 2009)
How do they say 0.49 when the graph (sexy as those legs are)®2=All&game2=®3=All&game3=&weeks=62 says under 0.48?
Anyway I'm going to lay claim to having bought the 500kth copy next week, I don't care what anyone says.
FilaBrasileiro (on 21 June 2009)
No trophies = No buy. Yes I'm a trophy whore.
Skeeuk (on 21 June 2009)
if it gets to 500k thats an amazing achievment because of word of mouth.
Carl2291 (on 20 June 2009)
I cant find this game anywhere in the UK :-(
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 20 June 2009)
omfg, you rawk bano, thanks for the info, the more Valkyria the better...

But is she some sort of Side main character or something?

This is a 2nd DLC based on her already. o.O
vykk8930 (on 19 June 2009)
I finally decided to buy a second copy of this game and now I can't find it anywhere!
Gearbox (on 19 June 2009)
keep relreasing dlc and it will reach a million at best :)

make a sequel with multiplayer and it will reach a billion
skeezer (on 19 June 2009)
It seems like a week ago when this was at .30

tombi123 (on 19 June 2009)
10K more to half a million.

Has outsold Star Ocean 4 in Japan.
BanoX93 (on 19 June 2009)
w00t! 1k before half a million ^_^
BanoX93 (on 19 June 2009)
You betcha. Take a look for yourself

It's another Edy mission.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 19 June 2009)
@Bano- even MORE new DLC? omg....
BanoX93 (on 19 June 2009)
This is a must buy for all PS3 owners. BTW, there's new DLC on the way folks ^__^
Gearbox (on 18 June 2009)
ill buy this eventually
binary solo (on 18 June 2009)
I just noticed, 327 passionate owners but no user reviews. What the...? Outlawron I'm looking at you.
binary solo (on 18 June 2009)
@PeteyPeeps 1mln seems a bit optimistic. But
i'll be stoked when I help it hit 500K.
skiptomylou41k (on 17 June 2009)
trophies should never be in RPGs, it just doesnt seem right
player1 (on 17 June 2009)
I hope that this game will get trophy support
PeteyPeeps (on 16 June 2009)
BUY BUY BUY! i want this to be 1 mil
Skeeuk (on 16 June 2009)
20k more
Xen (on 16 June 2009)
Further up.. further up..
vykk8930 (on 16 June 2009)
Yes!!!! Only 20,000 way from 500k!
PullusPardus (on 15 June 2009)
Everything is possible, look at kingdom hearts.
yusuke93_ita (on 15 June 2009)
it's impossible
PullusPardus (on 15 June 2009)
Lets hope it reachs a million!
scourge29 (on 14 June 2009)
how much is this right now?
Crystalchild (on 11 June 2009)
Must have title for everyone!
(even strategyhaters will love it.. like i do actually.)
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 11 June 2009)
great! : )
outlawauron (on 10 June 2009)
Well, now America is carrying the sales for this game!
Zuhyc (on 10 June 2009)
4-5 weeks till half a million!
chris1_16 (on 10 June 2009)

3 mil?
*~Onna76~* (on 10 June 2009)
Nearly half a million, go, go!
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 10 June 2009)
Valkyria is back on the list! YAY!!!
skeezer (on 09 June 2009)
Helping this game get more famous :-)
outlawauron (on 09 June 2009)
I doubt it was that inexpensive.

Anyways, I'm glad to see this on the front page.

masterb8tr (on 09 June 2009)
weird sales for this title
PeteyPeeps (on 09 June 2009)
HURRY UP and buy this game you ps3 owners ... this should be like 3mil by now, stop buying damn FPS's and get this!
nen-suer (on 09 June 2009)

The game cost between 6-10 million
am pretty sure they made twice that much :-)
now a sequal plz
tedsteriscool (on 08 June 2009)
I'm sure its made some profit by now.
Horrorfest (on 08 June 2009)
Do you plan on updating this any time?
outlawauron (on 08 June 2009)
reached 100k finally in Europe.
yusuke93_ita (on 08 June 2009)
uhm... only 2k in japan.. i think that sales will stops soon
terislb (on 07 June 2009)
wow this is almost .50m now.. a few weeks a go it looked like it would never go beyond .35

maybe there is hope for a sequel after all
Zlejedi (on 07 June 2009)
I don't think so. Most people who are interested in stuff like this knows english already.
Crystalchild (on 05 June 2009)
VC could be way better in europe, if its translated into the country´s languages. .. but okay, english is enough for me. bought it :)
epsilon72 (on 05 June 2009)
Bah, I'm not really liking this game. Good thing it was only $30 and not $60 for me.
RageBot (on 03 June 2009)
outlawauron (on 03 June 2009)
We need people to visit this page a lot.

This needs to be on the front page!
Pristine20 (on 01 June 2009)
wow, it's hit .47mil...go VC!!!!!
Cosign (on 31 May 2009)
Don't forget this game will do another few hundred thousands as soon as it hits platinum
whofwhof (on 30 May 2009)
buy this game.. helllll
outlawauron (on 29 May 2009)
Well, it's already ahead of Star Ocean 4. It's selling more worldwide weekly. We can't really expect more than 100k from Europe.

TLR is a good target, but I'm not too sure.
Zlejedi (on 29 May 2009)
I have a feeling it might outsell SO4 and TLR in the long run.
terislb (on 29 May 2009)
470 000? oh my the last time i checked it ws 360 000
Zlejedi (on 29 May 2009)
Yeah trophies would be good. I'd have another excuse to play it again :D
FilaBrasileiro (on 28 May 2009)
Needs trophies
kincuri (on 28 May 2009)
US sales are starting to pick up?! Glad to see the recent spike is looking like it might last for at least a little while. Should be 500K in a few weeks. Well done VC!
yusuke93_ita (on 28 May 2009)
finally 100K in europe
outlawauron (on 27 May 2009)
Wow. >5k in America. It's selling very well!
drakesfortune (on 27 May 2009)
500k Is a really good number for this game. Sega has to be happy.
yusuke93_ita (on 27 May 2009)
only 3k in japan :(
skeezer (on 26 May 2009)
Valkyria Chronicles, make it hit Top Spot!!! Woot
Zlejedi (on 26 May 2009)
With page hits counted from the scratch we can drive Valkyria Chronicles to the number one spot :)
Skeeuk (on 26 May 2009)
will deffo get to 500k and deserves it.
Carl2291 (on 25 May 2009)
Not having the "Most Popular Games" on the front page pisses me off.

Anyway, this should end on ~550k :-)
Zlejedi (on 25 May 2009)
Wow 500k seems realistic possibility now.

Demo is first two tutorial missions but in second one you don't have tank in game IIRC.
piccoro (on 24 May 2009)
Max King of the Wild (on 22 May 2009)
one was the tutorial and one was skirmish right? or did i miss something... i think they were the same but different spawn points
Torillian (on 22 May 2009)
Actually Outlaw if I remember correctly both missions included in the demo were done on the same map, just with different objectives, so I would count Max as correct.
outlawauron (on 20 May 2009)
@ Max

You know there's two maps, right?
Max King of the Wild (on 20 May 2009)
outlaw - too short to get an idea about it. the map was way small.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 20 May 2009)
Oh and VC got 5 stars on amazon while KZ2, LBP and other PS3 exclusives got 4 and under.

Hmmmm, in you're face Blaze and Music! :D
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 20 May 2009)
Ahh, after the 2nd playthrough i've finally had enough of VC, thats nearly 80 hours of gameplay in total.

And thats Without the DLC!!!
Xen (on 19 May 2009)
@ outlaw: Cool. Then even quicker, I was never looking at its WW, only Japan.
palitococo (on 19 May 2009)
700K LTD.
outlawauron (on 19 May 2009)
complaining about the length of a demo? It's two missions? That's like 30 minutes? How is that a short demo?
Max King of the Wild (on 19 May 2009)
nice boost.

i played the demo. way too short. i like how its a rpg but 3rd person shooterish. i have a friend who loves these types of games gonna try to convince him to buy it
outlawauron (on 19 May 2009)
@ Xen

It sold 11.5k last week worldwide.
SubiyaCryolite (on 19 May 2009)
Great. Good games deserve good sales.
XxXProphecyXxX (on 19 May 2009)
WHOA!!! nice boost!
Xen (on 18 May 2009)
500k inevitable within 20 weeks or less - 20 weeks is what it'll take with the Japanese sales as they are now... roughly. Are they still 5k/week?
danielhiru (on 18 May 2009)
Awesome, i remember this game being stuck at 0.34 for a few months, glad people are starting to support it ! maybe we will be blessed with a sequel one day =)
kincuri (on 18 May 2009)
Wow! Awesome adjustment for US Hoorah!

Others now needs to get their act together...
--OkeyDokey-- (on 18 May 2009)
It's in PS3's worldwide top 10 this week ;_;

500k is a lock.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 18 May 2009)
whoo hoo!!!

VC 2 on the way now gents!
outlawauron (on 18 May 2009)
@ nanaki

Not a chance. I'd love for it to, but it can't reach 800k.
NanakiXI (on 18 May 2009)
The thing is can VC steal the crown for the highest sold JRPG this gen?

Weren't there people who actually claimed Sega was loosing money on this? LMFAO XD
Cowboys4u86 (on 18 May 2009)
The DLC helped push the game along with a re-release in Japan. Blockbuster's and GameStop's recent sales have helped it as well. Glad more people are buying this game, it's amazing.
binary solo (on 18 May 2009)
Others total is 93,883, so at 500 per week we will be at 100k in about 12 weeks.
binary solo (on 18 May 2009)
Hopefully Others will at least sit around at 500 per week which means we will crawl our way to 100K, or die trying, even if there is no undertracking/upward adjustment.
Xen (on 18 May 2009)
Adjusted up!

:D :D
:D :D :D
nen-suer (on 18 May 2009)
500K coming up
yusuke93_ita (on 18 May 2009)
40k adjusted up !!!!!!!!!!
leatherhat (on 18 May 2009)
This game is selling better now then it ever did
outlawauron (on 18 May 2009)
Very nice. It got a minor adjustment in America.

One of the mid weeks in April got bumped up.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 18 May 2009)
ahh, almost done with my 2nd play-through/

Once im done with this, i've played VC to it's fullst.

A truly great game this gen.
papflesje (on 17 May 2009)
@ haxxiy: let's hope so, let's hope so (that it gets there ^^)
haxxiy (on 16 May 2009)
Selling amazing lately. It could make it's way up to 600k. I'd risk to say 700k, if it's undertracked by a large margin.
VivaLaWiida (on 16 May 2009)
It's finally mine and it's awesome.
outlawauron (on 16 May 2009)
@ serious

Don't try that. It's a mix of over/under for all consoles.

@ seraphic

I have to disagree on Japan. It's well within the margin of error as we get weekly MC and Famitsu.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 15 May 2009)
VC is not only under-tracked in US/EU but i'd say Japan to because of the new anime and DLC + Action Figures.

Around 60k - 80k no doubt now.
Videogirl (on 15 May 2009)
And it's probably undertracked in Europe too since the game is almost out of stock everywhere.
Serious_frusting (on 15 May 2009)
whoop whoop undertracked baby

why is everything PS3 related been undertracked on this site lately

Must be all these Sony is doomed threads getting to the management making them 2nd guess the data
outlawauron (on 15 May 2009)
I did! It's undertracked by at least 200% for the month of April in America.
Hero_time88 (on 15 May 2009)
The new NPD suggest that it is undertracked in US/ the Americas. Who would have said that?
phnguyen89 (on 14 May 2009)
Ahh yeah it's going to get higher as more games come out to the PS3 cause that will make more people buy the PS3.
yusuke93_ita (on 14 May 2009)
My God, I Love This Game
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 13 May 2009)
VC's Number 2 yes "2" FAN on The charts is back to praise its wall already full of nothing but pure and utter win!

Congrats VC!!! :P

And yes 400k sales ALONE is worthy of a sequel.

Lets just hope VC 2 can come close to the greatness that VC set the bar to.
nen-suer (on 13 May 2009)

You should know that games like this wont sell on the 360

Even big names like SO4 was outsold but this one
Carl2291 (on 12 May 2009)
400k sales warrants a sequel :-)

Hopefully at E3...
Max King of the Wild (on 12 May 2009)
kichi - not as bad of an idea as SO4, ES, ToV, ect not going multi day and date
binary solo (on 11 May 2009)
VC sales strategy for VGC members in Other country: give VC for birthday presents, Xmas presents etc to everyone you know who is remotely interested in gaming. Even people who don't have PS3's. They can hire a PS3 and play it.
binary solo (on 11 May 2009)
@ Kincuri: glad to hear it. I'm in NZ so if you can get it I can get it (I hope).

@crytek: The only people I see bitchin' about no games on PS3 are Nintendians and Xbots. The reason they're bitchin' is because they can't say there are no games on PS3 without looking like total idiots.
zuvuyeay (on 11 May 2009)
good to see this game still selling as it is a real treat,i don't know why this game is not marketed in the uk and so hard to find...i recently asked in a shop and they sold me a new copy for £20....bargain....but that took ages to find.....i thought europeans might like this kind of game.....??
pearljammer (on 11 May 2009)
This is doing great for a SRPG!

My favourite game this gen so far. I just downloaded the Selveria DLC, but I'm curious whether or not the EX mode is worth the cost?
palitococo (on 11 May 2009)
200K Japan, yeahhhhh!!!!!!!!!
Valkyre (on 11 May 2009)
The best JRPG i have played this gen by far.The story was awesome, and genuine , the only shortcoming is that while it is enemy's turn , you cant skip it to be a bit faster , but instead have to watch the entire moves , which can take up to 10 minutes in some battles.

other than that minor flaw the game is perfect.
kincuri (on 10 May 2009)
@Torillian - The DLC has been released here in Australia. We're serviced by SCE Europe, so I assume Europe has it too. It came out at the same time as the US release, but it seems to have had a minimal impact on sales here :(
KichiGuy (on 10 May 2009)
I would have bought this game if it were on 360 or Wii. Not going multi-console was a bad idea.
Torillian (on 10 May 2009)
I just said "in the US" because the DLC was really old in Japan so it's a nonfactor by now and the DLC was the only thing I could remember changing for VC in the US lately. I'm unsure if there is an EU date on the DLC or if it is already out.
binary solo (on 10 May 2009)
Is there no DLC in the rest of the world? If that's so I am so gutted. Why has DLC been so regionalised? No fair!!! Those of us who love VC are being punished because of where we were born? WTF!
snyperdud (on 10 May 2009)
Kicking ass in Japan.
Torillian (on 10 May 2009)
Ohhh.....there it is, woohoo. It's really picked up thanks to this anime and the DLC in the US. Thanks for the info nanaki
NanakiXI (on 10 May 2009)

Look at the World Weekly numbers and it is within the top 50.
NanakiXI (on 10 May 2009)
@binary solo

I was wondering the same exact thing lol.
Dark Odin (on 10 May 2009)
300k in Japan? do you believe?

I´d say 250k
Torillian (on 10 May 2009)
where are you guys seeing the latest sales numbers that give it 12k for this week? When I put up Sales History it hasn't been updated for this week and I see the sales for the last week as 10kish
binary solo (on 10 May 2009)
@ zuhyc exactly, 0.417 rounded to 2 decimal places is 0.42. Or is the practice of this site to always round down until the next 10K figure is reached?
sabby_e17 (on 10 May 2009)
Nice VC sold 13,651 copies last week.
outlawauron (on 10 May 2009)
Let's see. I wonder how long till it passes Star Ocean.
Zuhyc (on 10 May 2009)
@VivaLaWiida: those are rounding errors.

sales in America and Japan are amazing, too bad Europe isn't following.
Squall_Leonhart (on 10 May 2009)
200k in Japan! Finally! :-D
Vagabund (on 10 May 2009)
just started watching the anime... hehe, it's not even that bad...

@videogirl: hehe, tu pourrais m'aider pratiquer mon francais, j'ai la maturité dans 1 1/2 mois... et je suis mauvaaais :P

VivaLaWiida (on 10 May 2009)
This should be at 0.42
It sold over 417k!
VivaLaWiida (on 10 May 2009)
Dgc1808 (on 10 May 2009)
500K would be great. 450K would still be awesome though.
Videogirl (on 09 May 2009)
Suisse romande et je ne parle que le Hochdeutsch ^^
CHF 29.90 but WOG has no copy left and Alcom is apparently out of stock too.
Vagabund (on 09 May 2009) has it at 29.90, as well.. (if there are still any left)

hmm, wemmer nöd eifach schwiizerdütsch schnure bi so lokalzüügs? ou est-ce que tu viens de la suisse romande? :P (oder so...)
Videogirl (on 09 May 2009)
Where did you find it at that price ? I've seen it for CHF 70.- at best.
Vagabund (on 09 May 2009)
yup, nice legs in Japan, but my 2 favorite game stores over here in switzerland already try to get rid of it, it seems :-/ selling it for 29.90 swiss francs (= ~25 $), which is extremly cheap here... people should buy it as long as they still can
Carl2291 (on 09 May 2009)
400k, wow.

Wernt expecing these numbers for this game.

Well done!
shizzlee (on 09 May 2009)
This has anime O.o (goes to google)
MetalSabe (on 09 May 2009)
Word of mouth is (kind of) saving the sales of this game. I really want a sequel, DLC is not enough!
palitococo (on 09 May 2009)
Yeah, the number can grow up even more. The anime and the fans are helping VC so much, and he deserve its.
Videogirl (on 09 May 2009)
We shall continue to spread the word my friends there're still many people left to convert. ^^
NSS7 (on 09 May 2009)
This week 5k (famitsu) in Japan 7k, in US, 0.5k in other. Total 12.5k after 27 week. Amazing number for SRPG.
axumblade (on 09 May 2009)
I must say...400k for some reason seems like it's a ton more then 300k. I'm not sure why though but I think it's awesome that 400k people have gotten the chance to enjoy this game. :)
binary solo (on 08 May 2009)
Yay 400K. C'mon Others get over the 100K hump already! How can Japan be neating us by double!!!? I'm gonna do my bit, even though I can't stand being "represented" by the EU flag.
outlawauron (on 08 May 2009)
It seems ioi finally got the memo that this game was on sale at Gamestop for a month. Too bad it we only see a boost at the end of the month instead of it likely being the highest at the beginning of April.
shaqpack609 (on 08 May 2009)
Zlejedi (on 08 May 2009)
Another 5-6k this week by the time Anime ends it should be at 250k in Japan.
NoCtiS_NoX (on 08 May 2009)
I love this game hoping for a sequel.
I hope the anime will be very successful so chances of a sequel will rise.
papflesje (on 08 May 2009)
And rightly so :p
outlawauron (on 08 May 2009)
Very nice humptyz!
humptyz (on 07 May 2009)
I made an account here just to comment on this game. Man I am loving this game! Feels like I'm playing a shooter version of Risk.
NicholasCage (on 07 May 2009)
The anime series in Japan has helped sales a lot
Time Lincoln (on 04 May 2009)
one of the best rpgs I've played in a long time, hope it keeps selling
Hocannor (on 04 May 2009)
Yes, VC has very basic english, i'm italian and i understand everything.
VivaLaWiida (on 04 May 2009)
I hope my copy arrives soon. Can't wait to play this!
Marco (on 04 May 2009)
Go Valkyria GOOOO!

Ps: Metal Gear Solid 4 - Nr. 1
Zuhyc (on 04 May 2009)
If it keeps this up the game will outsell Blue Dragon in a month or 2.
binary solo (on 04 May 2009)
@ TT Makaveli: If you can communicate on this forum your english will be good enough.
Aprisaiden (on 03 May 2009)
:P 400k is bloody good for a SRPG! So much for it being a flop now
hxa155 (on 03 May 2009)
finally 400k
Vagabund (on 03 May 2009)
sold 10k this week... =) I just hope the sequel (if there will be one) comes to europe too, since it didn't even sell 100k over here so far...
Videogirl (on 03 May 2009)
The english in VC is very basic and there are subtitles. I'm sure you wouldn't have any problem understanding it.
TT Makaveli (on 03 May 2009)
why they only make a japanese and english version of games like this?like Disgaea 3...i really want both games but i think my english is not enough to understand everything
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 03 May 2009)
Mmm i see now. :P
sabby_e17 (on 02 May 2009)
WOOO, 400,000 baby!
Videogirl (on 02 May 2009)
Yeah and 5th episode is airing tonight. The anime's discussion :
shaqpack609 (on 02 May 2009)
wait a minute...THERES AN ACTUAL SHOW!!
st_muscat0 (on 02 May 2009)
Who needs advertisment for this when can just make an anime for it (and makes lots of money of that) and then also spike sales for this again.
NicholasCage (on 01 May 2009)
Agree'd, the anime show is helping this sell like hot cakes in Japan.
outlawauron (on 01 May 2009)
No, no. Sales are around 50-60kish more. Re-read the last part of your post.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 01 May 2009)
@Out- 80k?
Agreatsplit (on 01 May 2009)
I want to get this game but its rarely in stock in britain
outlawauron (on 01 May 2009)
Add a more at the end of that statement seraphic.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 30 April 2009)
Well, well now, its about damn time!

Valkyria Chronicles FTW!!!

Bwat JRPG this gen so far, not even SO4 was good enough to go up against this new PS3 IP.

At anyrate, i still think this is under-tracked and the total sales are around 50-60kish.
Aj_habfan (on 29 April 2009)
#1 on the bestsellers list at Amazon Canada. What's even more crazy is that the price is at $69.99 - I wonder if there was a sale or something before, because even in Canada, that is a pretty crazy price.
outlawauron (on 29 April 2009)
Huzzah! Break out the Gallian wine!
hkKAZE (on 29 April 2009)
Can you people not make prediction like telling the future instead say 'i think'.
snyperdud (on 29 April 2009)
The anime in Japan is helping out, as well as the Gamer-day sale at Gamestop.
zuvuyeay (on 29 April 2009)
hey,VGchartz bro just bought this game last week man,it's a brilliant game,if only the same people that bought CODgames bought this...we'd all have alot better games to play,i mean man,oh well....if there are other TBS games as good as this out on the PS3,then let me know...bro,classic sega,thanks bro,
CrazzyMan (on 29 April 2009)
As we can see, every GREAT PS3 game eventually will make it`s sales. =)
I wouldn`t be suprised, if before PS4 launch [b]this game will be a million seller,[/b] since i think, there are a lot of people, who will want to try this [b]Amazing gem,[/b] when PS3 will be selling at 199/299$.
CrazzyMan (on 29 April 2009)
Nice to see, that after 1 year since Japan release, the game is on the way to 500k. =)
This is how it meant to be!
yusuke93_ita (on 29 April 2009)
whofwhof (on 29 April 2009)
best jrpg game of this gen
the best game after mgs4 :D

whofwhof (on 28 April 2009)
go valkyriaaaaaaaa baby
papflesje (on 28 April 2009)
@ karwacki: seriously, if you think this game has no variety, then you haven't played it at all. Almost every level gets a different "new" thing added.
Arawn-Deathlord (on 27 April 2009)
Not only did I buy the dlc for this game, but I'm buying a 2nd copy as a gift to my friend. Also I bought the guide too. If any gamer is worth his or her salt then they should play VC.
outlawauron (on 27 April 2009)
Not enough variety? Are you kidding? Every stage is entirely different because of the reaction to each movement. A slight change in strategy will change the way the level plays out.
karwacki (on 27 April 2009)
i tryed out this game because of all the good things i heard about from this site,but really this game is too boring for me. the battle system takes too long and there is just not that much varity to the game. but other than that it looks good and has a fairly interesting story. id give it a 6-7/10.
outlawauron (on 27 April 2009)
It will outsell SO4!
Zuhyc (on 27 April 2009)
Oh my, this might actually outsell Star Ocean 4 if it keeps this up!
Xen (on 27 April 2009)
A breath away from 400k!

That anime and improved PS3 sales are doing wonders!

Hocannor (on 27 April 2009)
Valkyria Chronicles in Japan is nearly 200.000. Good job Sega and of course Playstation 3.
outlawauron (on 27 April 2009)
Adjusted up in Japan!

kincuri (on 27 April 2009)
Recently reached Chapt 17, with over 30 hours of gameplay (not including failed missions). I'm pretty much a casual gamer... haven't played a game this intensely for a long time. I find a lot of game lose their novelty after a while. VC is a massive exception! Probably the best story + character game I have played this gen.
I'm pleased to see Sega's commitment to the game, and the resulting boost in sales.
All PS3 owners should be made to buy this game
Xen (on 27 April 2009)
Squall, you're cheap, dude. i got it for $50 while the exchange rate from the $ to my currency is really brutal. It's worth it, man. Come on and buy.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 26 April 2009)
Well i recently finished VC...

And as of right now, its the best game on the PS3 IMO atm...

At the very least its up there with Folklore and Flower.
alekth (on 26 April 2009)
It's worth the £28 frankly. Though if I had to pay 70 euro for games, I'd rather just import.
Squall_Leonhart (on 26 April 2009)

LOL, i think shot is a bit much! I will get this on thursday as it is payday! :-D
papflesje (on 26 April 2009)
@ squall: don't complain about 28 pounds :p Over here, you pay 70 euros for the game, so if 28 pounds doesn't convince you, you should be shot :p
Squall_Leonhart (on 26 April 2009)
I may just have to settle for that, the other sites had it for £19.99 so kinda hoped i would be able to get it for that :-)
alekth (on 26 April 2009)
It's on amazon for £28 right now.
Squall_Leonhart (on 25 April 2009)
This game is sold out at every store i am trying to buy it from... the only option is ebay but they are charging £10 more than stores as they must know it is hard to get a hold of... LOL
player1 (on 25 April 2009)
I bought this game 2 days ago. Unfortunately my ps3 is dead and I dont know when I will get it back from service. I think i will like VC, the demo was awsome.
yagaminoue (on 24 April 2009)
Great game!
papflesje (on 23 April 2009)
Nice boost this week :)
vykk8930 (on 22 April 2009)
sequel please
whofwhof (on 22 April 2009)
i love this game
outlawauron (on 22 April 2009)
It's near guaranteed Dark Odin.
kincuri (on 21 April 2009)
Yay! @ current vgchartz logo and recent sales!
Dark Odin (on 21 April 2009)
It might reach 200k in Japan with the new boost
outlawauron (on 19 April 2009)
lol. So true.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 18 April 2009)
Selvaria = teh hawtness.

Shes teh jessica alba of VC.
headshot91 (on 18 April 2009)
I doubt it
outlawauron (on 18 April 2009)
Man, that Selvaria DLC is tough.
Gearbox (on 18 April 2009)
@ maxwell if there was online it would have been a million seller
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 17 April 2009)
@Xen- i said in that range.
Xen (on 17 April 2009)
0.80 seraphic? what?

It should be around 0.40...
outlawauron (on 16 April 2009)
@ Hero

Yep, because the normal version sold 156k at the end of 2008.

So Japanese sales are around 180k.
Hero_time88 (on 16 April 2009)
The "the best edition" has sold 21k in japan, so it's a little undertracked in Japan.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 16 April 2009)
Okay this game is officially undertacked on VGChartz by a certain amount.

It's at the very least around 0.40k to 0.80k range no doubt.
whofwhof (on 16 April 2009)
buyed today xP
im in italy and the reperibility was absoluety dissatisfaction
MaxwellGT2000 (on 16 April 2009)
could have sold better if it was on the Wii XD jk jk

I still need to beat this game @_@ I've had it since release month and it always gets pushed back for other games.
AdverD (on 15 April 2009)

I said, that moments you mentioned don't have particular relation to a RGP, but innate to almost any other game genre.
skeezer (on 15 April 2009)
Haven't even had time to complete it yet, :-(

I'll get to it this week end, almost done =D
outlawauron (on 15 April 2009)
Of course they are main story missions and side missions.

What's your point?

I'm just proving you wrong when you said it didn't have any of these things.

And the best version is still undertracked.
kincuri (on 15 April 2009)

Meh, I'd more interested in US and Japan sales this week. Interesting to see if the Gamestop sale boosted US sales, and if the anime release boosted Japanese sales.
yusuke93_ita (on 15 April 2009)
sales are dead... 880 in europe
PeteyPeeps (on 15 April 2009)
AdverD (on 14 April 2009)

Oh, and what are missions and free play maps in Red Alert or in any other strategy game? I guess those are "main story quests and sidequests", right?
AdverD (on 14 April 2009)
Def and Atk in VC are implicit.
And also did you hear about PC game Crisis? There are HP, attack and defence and even sort of skills - Nanosuit abilities, would you call this game an RPG too?
outlawauron (on 13 April 2009)
No quests?

What the hell are those skirmishes and reports I did. Man, I guess those were "extra things on the side".
XxXProphecyXxX (on 13 April 2009)
@ seraphics

I just got the game...I got it since many including you are highly recommending this game...I hope it won't disappoint =)
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 13 April 2009)
Welkiens Orders sort of = Skills of ya think about it. and there is stats via classes such as HP ATK DEF...

It does count as a JRPG, just a sJRPG. like aJRPG as an example for action such as Versus XIII. :D
AdverD (on 13 April 2009)

2 oliminator1994

Cause it's called (j)RPG for no reason. There are no quests, no dialogues, no stats and even no skill management, there are only exp and levelling (for whole class, but not for single unit) and equipment, I'm very confused about the reason game sites and magazines called this game RPG. In spite of that Valkyria Chronicles is a good game and it's worth buying.
tarbis (on 13 April 2009)
A potential sequel WOOHOO!!!
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 13 April 2009)
For all you PS3 owners out there who are looking to buying this game, Go for it, New DLC is coming and it'll make an already Perfect game, Perect-er!!
Thechalkblock (on 13 April 2009)

I am in the progress of playing the game, and so far I have to say yes it is.
cheese_man (on 13 April 2009)
Is the storyline of this game any good?
Thechalkblock (on 12 April 2009)

It's fun.
chris1_16 (on 12 April 2009)
What's so special about this game?
outlawauron (on 12 April 2009)
I'm so pumped for the DLC!
shaqpack609 (on 12 April 2009)
Dude, I HATE JRPG's, because they are all very boring to me...but this one is something special. It combines many elements from fps/tps/and jrpg. The storyline is great and its really fun to level up with skirmishes.On top of that, graphics are AAA, but the ragdoll phsics are a bit overdone. IMO, I would give it a 9.4
oliminator1994 (on 12 April 2009)
ok then. Why should i buy this when i dont like JRPGs?

Why is this different to any other of them?
NYANKS (on 12 April 2009)
Anyone PS3 owner who doesn't buy this game should incur a punishment of some kind! WTF
VivaLaWiida (on 11 April 2009)
I want this game so much!
snyperdud (on 11 April 2009)
Will buy.

Can't pass up the $30 deal at Gamestop.
terislb (on 10 April 2009)
240 vgchartz users who own the game thats 239 people i like
Kaixes (on 09 April 2009)
Gotta love a sale, cause it made me pick up the game today. I'm excited.
ironcladgranite (on 08 April 2009)
I'm in the same position as shoujo-gamer, but I dunno when I'll be able to actually get a PS3. Hopefully by the end of this year (Christmas, Birthday, ext.)
kincuri (on 08 April 2009)
DLC priced and dated! - "The three DLC packs, which release on PSN next Thursday, April 16th, will be priced at $4.99 each [US] - or about half as much as you pay for lunch out here in San Francisco. We think that’s pretty sweet."
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 08 April 2009)
@Shoujo- You WONT regret it, its a wonderful game.
shoujo-gamer (on 08 April 2009)
I just bought this during the Gamestop sale even though I cant pick up a ps3 until (hopefully) a month or so. First time I ever bought a game for I console I dont own.
smj1860 (on 07 April 2009)
Just bought the game today at the GameStop game day sale...WOW!!!! So awesome, I have not put it down since I got it except to right this here!!!
Carl2291 (on 07 April 2009)
Why the hell cant i find this in the UK? :-(
agardini51 (on 07 April 2009)
Hopefully the sales of this game will jump a little because of the Gamestop sale.
Vagabund (on 07 April 2009)
I'm not sure if those sales are really that bad for the game. I mean, it's an anime-style SRPG and a new IP, so you couldn't expect it to shift millions in western regions to begin with... and 170k in Japan is actually a very good number.
radha (on 07 April 2009)
i just bought it, this game is a dream is beautiful and marvelous, i had my doubts but after playing it for a few hours i was sold.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 07 April 2009)
Go! Go! GO Valkyria GOOO!!!
niksta2 (on 06 April 2009)
this is depressing, this game deserves to sell more...
kincuri (on 06 April 2009)
It's being tracked, but it only sold around 1,300 copies in Japan last week. The Game Stop sale only just started. If there is a significant lift in sales, we'll see it in the next few weekly updates.
The recent anime showing in Japan, and the DLC release should also help sales
Avarice28 (on 06 April 2009)
I think this game is no longer tracked, I purchased this game over the weekend and so did a couple of my friends. The game is being sold for like 30 new at gamestop and the sales on this site have not moved.
kincuri (on 06 April 2009)
Whoa, I hope they do an english dub for the western market. My Japanese isn't the greatest... :s
Skeeuk (on 06 April 2009)
one of the best jrpg this gen. and certainly the best ost this gen
Videogirl (on 05 April 2009)
Sega won't port it because Sony paid for the rights and both companies are now cooperating to get the most profit out of the franchise. Believe it or not but the showing of the anime is already having some positive effect sales wise.
kuddles (on 05 April 2009)
I love this game.

You would think Sega would at least port it to the 360, especially since a lot of JRPG fans probably went with the 360 this time around. For such a niche title, it needs all the help saleswise it can get.
Videogirl (on 05 April 2009)
First episode of the anime is up you can watch it here in japanese :
*~Onna76~* (on 04 April 2009)
@Blade, then you're a total retard if you don't buy this game only because it doesn't have trophies.

This game sold nearly double the amount of Disgaea 3, and is still the best selling RPG on the PS3. I guess not bad after all
BladeOfGod (on 04 April 2009)
I am not getting this till it gets trophies
nyobzoo (on 03 April 2009)
not bad sales wise. I guess Sega hit the mark with thier estimated sales for this game.
terislb (on 03 April 2009)
thank you gabriel for sharing your insight with us

..jsrpg + ps3 exclusive.. it was pretty clear this would not sell millons.. but it is well loved by all those that did buy it..thats the way of sega with anything non sonic since the saturn

that people like you who dont even own the game ..nor the console still feel the need to comment on it shows what a "flop" it has been
NanakiXI (on 03 April 2009)

Yeah cause we all know SRPGs sell so well.
Gabriel84 (on 03 April 2009)
shizzlee (on 02 April 2009)
Eh, I thought it looked intresting and I had the extra money to burn so I bought it. I like it :D
Cowboys4u86 (on 01 April 2009)
I'm glad I managed to track this game down... it was impossible to find, I'm glad I bought it. I finally have a JRPG for mah PS3!

prices for this used are going up on ebay
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 31 March 2009)

outlawauron (on 30 March 2009)
Well, I thought that after those two is eases up a little.

Then gets tough again......
kincuri (on 30 March 2009)
¥eah, that Selvaria introduction was pretty nuts, wiped out half of my squad, including all of my lancers the first turn she appeared....
It's kinda good when a mission is hard, you get such satisfaction when you actually finish it!
Barozi (on 30 March 2009)
Barozi posted 09/01/2009:
"looks good. I'll get it when it hits 30€. (which shouldn't take too long regarding the Euro sales)"

I'm in !!!!!
skeezer (on 30 March 2009)
I already got passed that part outlaw, I am on the mission where I have to get Welkin to the tank across the river. I passed it before but I did miserably. I am not worried about that only about how much harder this game is gonna get, especially after I got a little taste of Selvaria in chapter 7.
outlawauron (on 30 March 2009)
Need some help skeezer?

Patience is key on that mission.

And moving Alicia to get her leg healed is also key.
skeezer (on 30 March 2009)
I dunno how long it's gonna take but I will definitely pass this game by April 5th =D
hatmoza 2.0 (on 30 March 2009)

It has been receiving updates. It's just selling 2-3k a week worldwide.

The North American sales also got adjusted down.
Avarice28 (on 25 March 2009)
when are the sales going to be updated...this has been sitting at 360k for the past month and it has received sales of because I bought one this month and still no update:0(
kincuri (on 23 March 2009)
I had been hesitating whether I should buy this game for the last few months, and I finally went out and got it.
It deserves so much more in terms of sales, it shouldn't have to be one of those Japanese titles that never truly makes it into Western markets. It's such a beautiful game with such lovable characters!
Hopefully with the DLC coming Sega may advertise the game to get some new sales. They deserve it!
NicholasCage (on 22 March 2009)
This game sells about 3.5k weekly WW. Not bad, still has some legs.
MetalSabe (on 22 March 2009)
This game is so good, My friends all loving from watching me play and playing at my house. But none of them have PS3's. :(
Cowboys4u86 (on 22 March 2009)
I got this delivered yesterday and I'm already on Chapter 5. The game is so damn epic I can't put it down, this really is worth a purchase and a great take on SRPG's. This has pushed the genre in the right direction.

I hope trophies do come, but it was mainly aimed at the Japanese crowd and they don't seem to be as big on trophies.
whofwhof (on 21 March 2009)
only 0.37... ?!? wtf?
this is the best rpg on this gen right now.. BUY IT DAMN !
ameratsu (on 20 March 2009)

agreed completely. some people care too much about trophies.
Rainbird (on 19 March 2009)
@ whatz3rname

I agree, but on the other hand, if SEGA wants to get some extra sales, they know what it will take by now, hopefully.
Jalocin (on 19 March 2009)

Agree on that one.
whatz3rname (on 19 March 2009)
This isn't directed towards anyone here, but lately I have read about more and more people who say they wait to buy a game until it have trophies. That just makes me sad... I thought the meaning with videogames were to play great games, not to collect virtual trophies.
Feylic (on 19 March 2009)
Will a greatest hits come to NA?

@ Nicholas Cage

Yep. The Greatest Hits of Valkyria released this week in Japan. It almost sold 5k.
NicholasCage (on 12 March 2009)
Went from 3.6k last week to 8k this week

Is it like "Greatest Hits" in Japan or something?
outlawauron (on 12 March 2009)
Euphoria14 (on 12 March 2009)

Yes I did!


That may be, but FE is a long running franchise, VC is a new IP. Just being able to compare to FE sale is a big accomplishment. :-D
Son1x (on 11 March 2009)

Don't forget FE is missing European numbers. I'm pretty sure it sold at least around 100k or so.
outlawauron (on 10 March 2009)

Did you see Fire Emblem's adjustment?!

We are only 40k away!
mjk45 (on 09 March 2009)
it would have helped if sega had fully supported this game ,i know lots of people who wanted VC but where constantly told its sold out and there was only so many made plus GAME didn't stock it at all,no it wouln,t have sold millions but it could have doubled its sales if sega had more faith in its product
Bohound (on 09 March 2009)

well i hope you right im i hope im wrong and o really do, i want to see a secuel, as a fan of sega rpg's and games i would like to see a lot of games like this even if its not a direct secule, and we always see another fire emblem after another cuz nintendo is behind them thats at least why i think, they have more suport by themselfs than sega has from sony i hope this change cuz they have a really good third party company at they side but well that doesnt matter what really matter is that they keep on going this really good games and i too hope to see a secuel of this game, for now i just hope it sells a hal mill at least this is a really goos game and deserve a place in many players memories
Euphoria14 (on 08 March 2009)

If that is how it works then I wonder why we see a see Fire Emblem all the time.

This game is an SJRPG, a genre will rarely even reaches the 500k mark in terms of units sold. A long running series like Disgaea doesn't sell too hot but they also keep on coming.

With these sales I am almost certain a sequel is on it's way.
Bohound (on 08 March 2009)
i dont agree about the thing that makes the game special is that few people have it, this game its pure art ans it has an element that many game even new ones doesnt have "it feels fresh" there is nothing out there that looks like this or plays like this game so i really hope it can reach more people cus if not how are we specting a second part???im really looking forward to see a second part of this game but for the sales its very unlikely, just remember Final fantasy 7 that sold mills, and every one felt special about owning a master piece, and is exactly the same for this game, its really good i hope they make more games like this for this and others consoles, but i want to play them all. i wanted to buy this game but i prefered to buy Cod:WaW but my girlfriend knew i wanted this game also but didnt buy it myself cus i didnt think it will be that good, my girlfriend gave it to my in valnetines, and it reallyy was the best gift^^, a hell of game
Kos-mos (on 07 March 2009)
What Really makes this game great is that few people owns it. It sounds weird, but I feel special to own it.
Beoulve (on 06 March 2009)
I really want this game, but I haven't got the money for a PS3
papflesje (on 06 March 2009)
@ euphoria: my thoughts exactly. If there is a re-release, it requires trophies I think, and that means that a patch for the current version shouldn't be too far behind.
Euphoria14 (on 05 March 2009)

Sony has made it mandatory that any game released in 2009 must have trophies.

I know it is a re-release but wouldn't that rule still apply?
outlawauron (on 04 March 2009)

I wouldn't assume that trophies are coming via patch.
papflesje (on 04 March 2009)
@ skeezer: good choice indeed

@manman: unfortunately not. But there is a re-release planned apparently, so that will have trophy support (and an update for this version should follow instantly). Don't let the trophy support hold you back. This game deserves a sale, no matter what.
manman6 (on 01 March 2009)
do this game have trophy support?
skeezer (on 28 February 2009)
I just got this game today. I think I made a good decision by getting this instead of KZ2 :D
Drage (on 25 February 2009)
Agreed with Skeeuk, Hitoshi Sakimoto is a god.
Skeeuk (on 23 February 2009)
the best thing about VC is the amazing music
NicholasCage (on 22 February 2009)
Nice legs in Japan I guess. Still sells 300 a week.
papflesje (on 19 February 2009)

still have to wait a week before it gets here :'(

And I heard they were actually adding some stuff to the re-release (doesn't it require trophies if it gets re-released since it's after January?). If so, I hope that other people can download a patch or something.
PullusPardus (on 19 February 2009)
@VivaLaWiida , im sure you will leave the wii compeletly if you bought a ps3.

you are right i murdered to get this game it was one the last two copies
but sega knows this and they are re-releasing it. hopefully more people would buy it.
mjk45 (on 18 February 2009)
one of the problems was they didn't make enough copies and stores like GAME didn't even bother stocking it so in the future this will be one of those games that sells well used
VivaLaWiida (on 17 February 2009)
I want to have this game so badly :(. Maybe I'm going to sell my Wii for a PS3 and this game, but then my name wouldn't fit anymore, lol.
outlawauron (on 16 February 2009)
But 10-12 million in dev costs wouldn't need 600k.
rukusa (on 16 February 2009)
Surprisingly fantastic game.

I held back for a long time due to the lack of trophies, but finally caved in by persuasion from a friend.

We played it at his place and man this really good and alot of fun.

The combat system is very accesible and very well explained. A gem in this generation.
g-value (on 15 February 2009)
This game is awesome, Its a must buy for any SRPG fans.
Videogirl (on 15 February 2009)
Ex-Team Overworks, new merged Wow Works studio employs 50 people, which means a very low 2 millions annual wage costs. Add a few millions for additional costs, and voilà...
outlawauron (on 15 February 2009)
@ Videogirl

I think you grossly overestimate the costs with this game. The primary cost would be the engine but even the engine itself isn't very technical. Sure it cost some money but I don't think the worst case scenario is 600k to break even.

It took the cheap routes in some ways as it didn't have any advertising and wasn't localized for Europe.
Videogirl (on 15 February 2009)
Well taking into account they built the Canva engine from the ground up, and that it took them four years of delevopement for this game, add to that the level of polishing and the fact they hired renowned seyiuu to dub the main characters. We can estimate the developpment costs around 10-12 millions which means in the worst case scenario the game needs to sell 600K to break even.

But Sega might still sell its canvas engine and recoup all its costs just from that.
cool48 (on 14 February 2009)
I wonder how much money Sega lost/made on this game.
Videogirl (on 14 February 2009)
Don't worry sales will rise again next month when the game will be rereleased as greatest hit in Japan.
yusuke93_ita (on 14 February 2009)
oh no... in japan the sales are dieing... only 500 copies of the game...
in europe they selled 2'500 copies...
Simulacrum (on 14 February 2009)
Got it today!
Stocko (on 12 February 2009)
Wow this game outsold Tales on 360 that is good cuase this is a NEW IP VS a Popular one...
Videogirl (on 12 February 2009)
@ yusuke
And that's why I bought a second copy (still in shrink wrap) I will either keep or give away.
papflesje (on 12 February 2009)
@ yusuke: indeed, that's why I went to to buy it :)
yusuke93_ita (on 12 February 2009)
in europe it's hard to find a copy of this game....
Skeeuk (on 12 February 2009)
should crawl to 400k i think. i wouldnt be trading this game in for anything its totally unique, it goes for a high price on ebay
outlawauron (on 12 February 2009)
@ Jijjin

It isn't discontinued, but it's not an "if" but a when.

Tales of Vesperia is discontinued.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 11 February 2009)
marciosmg (on 11 February 2009)
JUst got to chapter 10. And now comes into play the fact that I HAVE TO REMEMBER TO SAVE DURING THE DAMN FIGHTS.



But this game is awesome. I am a big doodoo head :-(
Videogirl (on 11 February 2009)

The game its not overpriced when you take into consideration the hours of gameplay and the quality of the title. Plus you can now buy it for 57$ on Amazon
Jijjin (on 10 February 2009)
Is this game really discontinued? Wow, I better act quickly.
DaSimkin (on 10 February 2009)
man, great game, such pooor sales.

I think it is just over priced. $70 for a game is a lot. At my local EB Games everywhere there wants it, but shys away because of the price.
Xen (on 10 February 2009)
So it managed to do 350 ;)

I really wish we'd get more shipments, the game is VERY hard to find.
Serious_frusting (on 09 February 2009)
got to admit, this game has me hooked man, erm

Sony should bundle this so it dont go multi.

WKC + VC WW bundle for like 300 pounds or 310 pounds. of course after WKC gets all the sales it can get from a release without a bundle.


PS3 1 controller, WKC + VC + Disgaea + ES 340-350 pounds. epic bundle
outlawauron (on 09 February 2009)
Here comes the crawl to 400,000.
ShadowSoldier (on 09 February 2009)
350,000 woot
TheInfectedBy590 (on 08 February 2009)
Heavily underrated game is heavily underrated :(
alfredofroylan (on 08 February 2009)
Maybe if they go PSP (for big sales on Japan) or Multiplataform (for overseas sales)
outlawauron (on 08 February 2009)
I wish they would luisgvm, but I don't think they will.
luisgvm (on 07 February 2009)
do you guys think that they would make a valkiria chronicles 2?.
Son1x (on 06 February 2009)
I have this game even though I don't even have a PS3.
Soriku (on 05 February 2009)
Played the, it's great.
Vetteman94 (on 05 February 2009)
Anyone with a PS3, and does not have this game should be ashamed of themselves. To think I almost deprived myself of one of the best games on PS3. It could also have the best story of all games this gen.
NicholasCage (on 05 February 2009)
Expected more sales from Japan.

I will get this, once it is $39.99 :P. They should bundle this game like Uncharted.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 03 February 2009)
Really Awesome Grade A game so far....

Just hope i can come back home to play it...
NYANKS (on 02 February 2009)
Damnit, I meant it's NOT our fault! We all bought it! It's damn Fps'ers, lol.
NYANKS (on 02 February 2009)
I hate everyone who hasn't bought this, lol. Sega, it's out fault! We bought it! Give me a sequel! Or at least an assload of DLC! *assumes fetal position*
Blood_Tears (on 01 February 2009)
Finished it last night, amazing game!
yusuke93_ita (on 31 January 2009)
i bought it yesterday... it's a nice game
Simulacrum (on 31 January 2009)
Sales seems to have died...No boost from this weeks software.
Jalocin (on 31 January 2009)
There'll be battles where it'll be usefull or nescessary to use all or almost all characters. At least if you don't want them to die permanently ^^
At least thats what I found out.
marciosmg (on 30 January 2009)
I bought it and am about to start chapter 5.

I have to say, it's a great game.

The one "issue" (i am not even gonna say problem) is that I always end up using 3 or 4 guys during the battles and frget about the others.

After a couple of rounds they are so far away I would just waste CP to use them.

But great game so far.
Drage (on 29 January 2009)
This game is AWESOME!
outlawauron (on 29 January 2009)
VGC being an open gaming community doesn't make it ok to post childish and trolling comments.
Destiny Blade (on 29 January 2009)
I use gamerankings, not that other site. They have Vesperia at 83% and Valkyria at 87%. There's nothing wrong with comparing the two games. I think it's fun talking about RPG's and comparing tbh. You can go to the Vesperia page and say Vakyria is better, I wouldn't see anything wrong with that at all. This is an open gaming community after all.
Torillian (on 29 January 2009)
And to correct an error you made before, Vesperia is at 81%, not 83
Torillian (on 29 January 2009)
The issue is not that you have an opinion, it's that you come where your opinion is unnecessary and inflammatory, just like if I went to the ToV page and just randomly said "VC is better". I may believe that, but it doesn't make me any less of a dick for randomly blurting it out where I'm not wanted.
Destiny Blade (on 28 January 2009)
I got a warning for posting here about this, so I'm trying not to come off as being too aggressive. That's why I use words like "look". The slightest opinion on this site will have you thrown off quickly.

Valkyria's visuals are far from weak; they're amazing. If I recall correctly, I never said anything about the two games visuals. I just think that Vesperia is the better game, and reviews are close enough for me to think that without being crazy.

lmao... it doesn't even matter XD
Torillian (on 28 January 2009)
What about IGN: they gave Vesperia an 82 and VC a 90. There aren't that many that gave them the same score, if there were they'd be closer on Meta.

Also, have you played either game? Because all you're doing is talking about how each "look"
danielhiru (on 28 January 2009)
err, so, blade, your saying that Valkyria has better a combat system and gameplay, but deservs to sell less than Vesperia because its has weak visuals?
Destiny Blade (on 28 January 2009)

This games reviews aren't that far from vesperia's. 87% isn't that much greater than Vesperia's 83%. I'd say they're pretty much even review wise, seeing as how a lot of reviewers game them very close scores (i.e Gamespot giving them both an 8.5).

I think Valkyria has the superior combat system and gameplay, but Vesperia looks be better all-around.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 28 January 2009)
Just got my copy today, Great game, the reviews were just.

outlawauron (on 28 January 2009)
@ Destiny Blade

I would have to say that one with better reviews and from people who have actually played both games have picked Valkyria.

And as someone who owns two copies of Vesperia, it's good but not this good.
Destiny Blade (on 27 January 2009)
I'm waiting on a price drop before I actually buy this... Looks good, I just didn't know it was doing so well.
Torillian (on 27 January 2009)
The one with the better metacritic?
Destiny Blade (on 27 January 2009)
I don't know how this sold better than Vesperia.... It's pretty obvious which game is better lol.
NYANKS (on 27 January 2009)
These kinds of sales make me hate people lol. Buy this game damn you! *shakes fist*
Ratix240sx (on 27 January 2009)
its selling about 1k a week in others....
danielhiru (on 26 January 2009)
still at 0.34 after 2 weeks of Others added, are the sales dead already in others =(
c0rrupt_gamer (on 26 January 2009)
I simply love this game.

... On my last mission I Lost Marine, my best sniper... she died for real, an epic ending...

Dgc1808 (on 25 January 2009)
Can't find it.... here... Might have to order...
outlawauron (on 25 January 2009)
@ Infected

No date just that it's coming soon.
NYANKS (on 24 January 2009)
DAMNIT! I want DLCCCCCCCC! Is this the best SRPG evar?
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 24 January 2009)
Damn this game is hard to find via local stores, talk about in demand.
GhaleonUnlimited (on 23 January 2009)
Who fucking cares about trophies. This is one of the best, most original, not-retarded games to come out this generation.
TheInfectedBy590 (on 23 January 2009)
Any word on when the DLC will be coming out?
VivaLaWiida (on 23 January 2009)
I loved the demo.
errorrrr (on 23 January 2009)
slap to the face for Tales of Vesperia. Go VC!
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 20 January 2009)
Awesome sauce!
Videogirl (on 20 January 2009)
Since the Platinium edition will be released in Japan I don't see any reason for not doing it in EU/US
outlawauron (on 20 January 2009)
@ Rainbird

If sales can reach 400k, then it wouldn't be too hard to imagine that they shipped 500k. When that happens, then we get Platinum, Greatest Hits, etc.
Rainbird (on 20 January 2009)
Personally, I don't think VC will be discontinued, because I think Sony needs to have good exclusive games on the PS3, so I think it will be platinum'ed before it gets discontinued.
Plus, platinum'ing VC would only strengthen Sony's relationship to SEGA.
Deviation59 (on 19 January 2009)
No trophies are coming but don't let that stop you from picking up this great game.
realill (on 18 January 2009)
I do not think the trophies are coming for this game. But if you are thinking about buying this game, you should just go and do it. The game is really good.
deathgod33 (on 18 January 2009)
once it gets trophy support im buying it.
DaSimkin (on 18 January 2009)
Everyone I know who has a PS3 *WANTS* this game. But people are being cautious in these poor economic times. and $70 for a game is a lot.

I think it's time SONY realized that $60 is the sweet spot for a game.

And it'd help if it had trophy support, what is the hold up?
Skeeuk (on 18 January 2009)
lol darth yes oh so true.

i hope valkyere sells past 500k mabey then it can go onto platinum.

i hope tales also sells more what do ppl buy these days?
darthdevidem01 (on 17 January 2009)
well its outsold tales of vesperia
Blacksaber (on 16 January 2009)
The makers of Skies of Arcadia...make another game I want badly....
luistomas8782 (on 16 January 2009)
Amazing game
Son1x (on 16 January 2009)
I meant if the PS3 gets a price drop. For the game, online UK stores have it for like 20-25 pounds.
outlawauron (on 15 January 2009)
@ Son1x

I would highly doubt it as it's likely to be discontinued along with Tales of Vesperia.
Son1x (on 15 January 2009)
One of the reasons I might buy PS3 if it gets a price drop.
outlawauron (on 15 January 2009)
I'm thinking 160k in America lifetime, 140k in Others and 180k in Japan.

I think it'll fall just short of 500k.
Heavenly_King (on 13 January 2009)
hopefully with the re-launch in japan the game will sell worldwide 500k.
nordlead (on 12 January 2009)
Just finished the game for the first time. I still have 1 skirmish to play, and then all of them on Hard.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 11 January 2009)
This game equals epic win.
SHMUPGurus (on 10 January 2009)
Amazing game! I especially love the skirmishes. It's not like in some Fire Emblem/FF Tactics games where you can only level up certain characters during missions. There's a lot of ways to complete this game in that regard (play only the missions, or overpower yourself in skirmishes, etc.).

Oh, by the way, Vyse and Aika FTW! ^^
nordlead (on 09 January 2009)
well, hopefully sales can stay high for this game. It is the best game I've played on the PS3 yet. Also, I love the graphics and I hope SEGA makes another game soon using the same engine.
Barozi (on 09 January 2009)
looks good. I'll get it when it hits 30€. (which shouldn't take too long regarding the Euro sales)
Zlejedi (on 09 January 2009)
With anime and best of edition maybe 500k will be possible ?
Xen (on 09 January 2009)
When did this pierce 300k? I missed out.

Anyway, woo!
Vagabund (on 09 January 2009)
After spending about 12 hours with the game, I can say that it really rocks :-) Too bad that quality alone doesn't sell...
oh, and I really hope we'll see that kind of graphic style in some other games as well in the future!
Videogirl (on 08 January 2009)
The story is somewhat vapid at the very begining, but once you're past chapter 5 it takes off. The Gameplay however becomes gradually more intense and soon you're fighting some very epic and long battles.

Check out this guy Brad reactions while playing (nothing too revealing so you won't be spoiled), at first he was like meh... but now it's actually one of his favourite games.
terislb (on 07 January 2009)
where are the sales for the us week 9-10?

if you didnt like the demo .. you should still give it a try.. the game truly shines once you get to the large scale battles
outlawauron (on 06 January 2009)
@ Montana

I've only seen one person who has bought and not have liked it. Some who did not like the demo have enjoyed it though.
DaSimkin (on 06 January 2009)
This game needs trophy support
Skeeuk (on 06 January 2009)
deserves much more sales. fantastic game.
MontanaHatchet (on 06 January 2009)
I wasn't very impressed with the demo, despite liking other strategy games. Is the story good enough?
Christhor (on 06 January 2009)
I had some money to blow, so let's see if I like it!
BurnOutBrighter (on 06 January 2009)
Finally finished this 35-hour long adventure last. What a great game!

I'm also encouraged that its sales look like they're picking up, hopefully more people can get to it now that the holiday barrage is over...
Pristine20 (on 06 January 2009)
looks like the word is finally getting out. I hope this has legs.
Neos (on 05 January 2009)
eww, played the demo..this is SO not my game.

i hate the waiting and such, JRPG bore me most of the time, and this even more lol xD

Glad i didn't buy this!
kanariya (on 05 January 2009)
I played the demo and this is a great game.
I'll get a copy when there's discount available.

It deserves more sales.
MetalSabe (on 05 January 2009)
Hopefully it'll sleeper-hit its way to decent sales. Great game, just beat it.
NYANKS (on 04 January 2009)
@ Lil_D420: This game is in a genre that traditionally doesn't have great sales. Resistance 2 is a shooter, a much more popular genre. The comparison is a little off.
Lil_D420 (on 04 January 2009)
y is it so weak in SALES o wa1t same reason R2 aint doing so good ,, no advertisement :(
outlawauron (on 04 January 2009)
Yes! Sales did jump up about a 15k.
kutasek (on 04 January 2009)
yay, VC was undertracked.
Rainbird (on 04 January 2009)
Sweet! 300k sales achieved!
c0rd (on 04 January 2009)
Finally got to playing this... amazing game so far. Probably my favorite PS3 game yet!

This gen has really been lacking on RPG's this awesome...
terislb (on 03 January 2009)
how is this supposed to sell when its nearly unavaibable . (
Simulacrum (on 03 January 2009)
Hmh this was SOLD OUT in Finland when I was gonna buy it!
Not in local stores..
Not in my 2 fauvorite netstores...
Not at (eBay)...
Eventually found it on my third best netshop...
NYANKS (on 03 January 2009)
@ outlawauron, whoops. Math skills FTW! This game is soooo damn good. If I was ridiculously rich, I would definitely buy around 700,000 copies of this game! :)
Dgc1808 (on 02 January 2009)
Me want this game. These sales figures hurt my feelings :-(
outlawauron (on 02 January 2009)

All it needs is 16,300 sales next week!
NYANKS (on 02 January 2009)
@ Outlawauron, cmon don't do that too me. That cant happen, but i wish it would...... :(
jshields01 (on 02 January 2009)
Man, this game is so fantastic. Please make a sequel! And please make it have a 2 player skirmish mode. I mean, wouldn't that be sweet?
outlawauron (on 02 January 2009)
I think it may get 300k in the next week!
jerseyboy609 (on 01 January 2009)
@ my old post:This game didnt get Haze-ed, it got Okami-ed.
KingHenry (on 01 January 2009)
Fun game play, stylish art, and good story.
A must buy for Strategy lovers, and a good pick up for PS3 owners
leo-j (on 01 January 2009)
For a SRPG its selling very well.. they usually flop on consoles
NYANKS (on 31 December 2008)
The Best word to define this game is........EPIC. @Arsenal009, don't kid yourself. These graphics are damn good.
andrewclear (on 31 December 2008)
This game is more than's great. And long...around chapter 6 you start hitting battles that take an hour or more to beat (and hope you don't fail)
forsaken0825 (on 31 December 2008)
Sega should have advertise this more this is what happens. Everyone one i know don't even know about this game
321tttrini4everz (on 30 December 2008)
is this game good ???
andrewclear (on 29 December 2008)
This is a great game. Sadly, it's sales are the same as Eternal Sonata's and Tales of Vesperia. The only thing these three titles have in common are the cell shaded graphics. Even though the graphics in all 3 games are very good, and look great on an seems most gamers are rejecting this art style in this generation of games (well on the 360 and ps3 anyways). It's sad too, cause all 3 games have good stories, and are fun to play.
SemaJameS (on 29 December 2008)
@arsenal009 ..these graphics are incredible. Absolutely stunning even. You do not understand how graphics work. the texture resolutions are very high, and they are very fluid and colorful. the graphics engine for Valkyria Chronicles is more technologically advanced than the unreal 3 engine (Gears of war, Unreal, Last Remnant)
realill (on 28 December 2008)
I am not sure if such beautiful graphics is possible on Wii ... with some downgrades in details and long distant objects may be ...
arsenal009 (on 28 December 2008)
I think they may have already turned a profit. This game has some pretty weak graphics, could have even been done on the Wii.
Good gameplay though, i'm happy gamers are supporting this type of game.
outlawauron (on 28 December 2008)
@ Penholder

It got a few magazine ads, but who reads those anymore.
Penholder (on 27 December 2008)
Oh, and I dont think this flopped. This game had (has) NO advertising. Its done good for how it was shown to the public... (which it wasn't lol)
Penholder (on 27 December 2008)
Got it for Christmas! On chapter 5 and loving it! (I would be further, but I have Eternal Sonata to go along with it!!!)
Rainbird (on 27 December 2008)
Damn this game is good! Just picked it up today, and I am only at chapter 4 and loving it!

Please go multiplatform, only so that fans of this game have a better chance at seeing a sequel. :-(

I just picked this game up so at least I have done my part, I just wish games like this would get more love.
terislb (on 27 December 2008)
well for something to flop you must first expect it to be a hit..

but just like a real sega game , despite its quality and innovation it didnt sell because people obviously want another halo or resident evil or metal gear instead of something new

and just like a real sega it will only sell in decent numbers on ebay in a few years, i can see why they quit making consoles
outlawauron (on 27 December 2008)
Let's hit 300k before 2009!

jerseyboy609 (on 26 December 2008)
well, most of my first playthrough I got straight A's anyway. Once I got a set strategy, it worked like a charm everytime.
Funglip (on 26 December 2008)
The only downside to this game is that by the 2nd play-through you would know exactly what's going to happen so it would be like you were cheating.

Still it's my game of the year.
jerseyboy609 (on 26 December 2008)
I beat this game twice already...piece of cake with straight A's
tombi123 (on 25 December 2008)
Received this beast of a game for Christmas.
codename64546 (on 25 December 2008)
wild arms 6 would perfectly fit the graphic engine used in this
TyePhoid_PAL (on 24 December 2008)
Ravage27 (on 23 December 2008)
this game seriously deserves more sales...sigh...chances of seeing a sequel squashed thx to these pathetic numbers
KylieDog (on 23 December 2008)
...and the day is mine! £19.98 at!
Lavos (on 23 December 2008)
This game is simply brilliant... i'm amazed of how good this game is... if you are hesitating on buying it... don't, just go and do it... you will have a blast!!!...
terislb (on 22 December 2008)
this game is the reason i bought me a ps 3 ..i had never considered that before. .but once i saw the games trailer... its one of the games that. are great but are missed out by most because of the lack of advertising .-.

outlawauron (on 21 December 2008)
@ jerseyboy

I expected 350k lifetime. So it is looking to hit that. I'd be absolutely thrilled to see it hit 500k in America.
jerseyboy609 (on 20 December 2008)
This is one of my favorite games this generation. Its definitely in my top 3. I beat the game once and I am already on chap 13 again. It offers tons on replayability. It is extremely addictive. I would give it a 9.5/10...but to bad it got Haze-ed in sales
ruibing (on 19 December 2008)
That's a pretty selfish statement.
KylieDog (on 19 December 2008)
I was hoping this game would bomb a lot harder.

Then I could have picked it up at a discount price.

Alas, still £40.
Deviation59 (on 19 December 2008)
More people need to buy this game. I want sequels, dammitt!
Dgc1808 (on 18 December 2008)
Can't wait to get this game :)
SHMUPGurus (on 18 December 2008)
Haha, I'm getting this game for Christmas. I know, because I saw where my parents were hiding all the gifts and it's the first thing I saw. Hehehehe! =P
blazinhead89 (on 16 December 2008)
I Want this game.
lightbleeder (on 16 December 2008)
I will buy this game this weekend!
Zlejedi (on 16 December 2008)
I prefer to get my games in english instead of receiving countless shity half-assed translations from local distributors.
jerseyboy609 (on 16 December 2008)
I JUST BEAT THIS GAME, it was excellent. Ending was a bit unexpected, but kind of meh...but I loved it!! I cant believe what happened to Largo *runs away
mullinsmcd (on 15 December 2008)
Man, even though I have this for PS3 I sort of wish it was multiplatform now so they could sell more copies. For me this game comes only second to Fallout 3 for best RPG of the year and its definitely one of my favorite games even compared to the PS2 era in its prime. I really hope that this engine can be utilized for other games even though the sales weren't stellar.
whatz3rname (on 15 December 2008)
@Welkin: "The game is appreciated and many persons would like to buy it but Sega didn't translate the game for the Europeans (subtitles). It is pity, sales would have been much stronger. :/"

Oh God, sometimes I really hate living in Europe. Here in Sweden we don't get the games translated or dubbed to Swedish, except when it comes to games for children and casual games (and then, not all games anyway, especially not Nintendo's). Are we complaning about that? Hell no. So stop complaning and learn to deal with the english language instead. If it wasn't for the fact that alsmost all games in Europe must be translated to german, spanish, italian, french and so on we would get the games much, much faster. Espeically roleplaying games.

Ps. This is not pointed to any one here, just in general. So no hard feelings :) Ds.
valen200 (on 14 December 2008)
I am in awe of this game.
Drage (on 14 December 2008)
This game is amazing.
deathgod33 (on 13 December 2008)
great legs in EU
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 13 December 2008)
I'll be picking up this title very soon.
Welkin (on 12 December 2008)
memory2zack > Yes, it's true. I'm don't understand why Sega doesn't translate it and besides, he translates all its other games. It's pity, this game has a big potential. Maybe Sega doesn't believe in his game.
Stocko (on 12 December 2008)
Best JPRG this gen love it...
memory2zack (on 12 December 2008)
@Welkin: Really? Man, Sega of Europe did a very bad job. I always hear gamers not buying a jRPG because it wasn´t translated too here in Europe.
jerseyboy609 (on 12 December 2008)
ooo, I think you powned him in this post
>The story is terrible and cliched all around.

Give me please an example of non-clichéd story in video game.
AdverD (on 12 December 2008)
>RPG system is pretty much non-existant, you dont chose any skills or stats, instead you level your units up in a linear way.

Another one. Having stats and levels is NOT being RPG(Or do you think, that games like Blade of Darkness are RPG?). Of course there is no RPG system in VC, VC is tactical game.

>there is not much place for some tactic.

I completely disagree with that statement, of course it's not of JA level, but player has a good variety in decisions.

>The story is terrible and cliched all around.

Give me please an example of non-clichéd story in video game.
Rei (on 11 December 2008)
It's an okay game .. but not as good as some people try to make it look.

- The story is terrible and cliched all around.
- RPG system is pretty much non-existant, you dont chose any skills or stats, instead you level your units up in a linear way.
- maps are pretty small and characters lack the ability to climb/crouch/lay down(only in the grass)/take cover using walls or anything. And so there is not much place for some tactic.
- skirmishes are the same maps you play in the story mode, there is little challenge in the game, it is pretty simple and you always know what to do since maps are so small and linear.
- art design is interesting but graphics are meh. Physics engine doesnt work properly.

I dont regret buying the game, but I would had not if not all the hype around it.
outlawauron (on 11 December 2008)
@ jersery

We (I) were hyping the game not how much it will sell.
Welkin (on 11 December 2008)
Small precision for sales in Europe : The game is appreciated and many persons would like to buy it but Sega didn't translate the game for the Europeans (subtitles). It is pity, sales would have been much stronger. :/
jerseyboy609 (on 11 December 2008)
dude, I am on chap 13...I LOVE THIS GAME, this game will die out soon because there are not any online capabilities...but skirmishes satisfy me. I wish this game could sell more, but considering the amount of hype from this and other site, sales are dissappointing.
vokiel (on 10 December 2008)
If you save/reload all the time it can last up to ~60 hours. No replay value.

This game has a somewhat idiotic storyline, awful mechanics & physics and a strong tendency to ignore its own odds system. It's not a surprise that sales numbers are going down everywhere. That's not a keeper for me, I'm very disappointed, I was expecting better.
Sh1nn (on 10 December 2008)
GOTY for me ^__^
Funglip (on 10 December 2008)
@jerseyboy609, did you even play it for over 5 hrs or so? If this game won't sell over a million, it's because not many ppl know how good it is. Its art style and release time didn't help either.
jerseyboy609 (on 10 December 2008)
@fungflip, I have this game, it just seems like one of those games that will die out very soon...highly doubt a million sales
Drage (on 10 December 2008)
Come on people, BUY THIS GAME!!!

MetalSabe (on 10 December 2008)
I think this game will have good legs, hopefully it will sell as well as Lost Odyssey. These two are my fav JRPG's this gen.
Funglip (on 09 December 2008)
@jerseyboy609: this game's hype is dying out

What hype? This game has no hype, look at the damn sales. Base on how good the game is, its sales should be well over 1 million already.
If you don't agree, you obviously haven't try it out yet.
darthdevidem01 (on 09 December 2008)
it is astonishing EVERY week except for 1 in EU has been higher than the first
errorrrr (on 09 December 2008)
@jerseyboy 609: the game's hype is dying out

Lol... you serious? look at the sales, the leg is awesome (Europe having week 5 higher than week 4!). it's gonna definitely surpass Tales of Vesperia, that's a feat in it self.
Torillian (on 09 December 2008)
30-35 hours for a single play through of the main story. There are a good amount of things to do after that, but that's all it takes to beat the game.
Phoenix_Wiight (on 09 December 2008)
I will probably buy this after Christmas. Can someone give me details on the games length?
outlawauron (on 08 December 2008)
@ dgc

No one expected that much!
Gearbox (on 08 December 2008)
such a friggen funn game! people otta buy this, well im more of a person who needs multiplayer so for me its only a rental but then at least rent it!
Dgc1808 (on 08 December 2008)
*sighs*.... Why must such a good game sell less than 750K by January .....
FPSrules (on 08 December 2008)
ima give the demo another try since i heard so many good things about this game
jerseyboy609 (on 08 December 2008)
this game's hype is dying out
darthdevidem01 (on 08 December 2008)
its actually done quite well for an SRPG without the word Final Fantasy in it (FFT)
milanez (on 07 December 2008)
I'm only on chapter 5 so far, but its definitely shaping up to be one of the best strategy jrpgs out there with surprisingly fluid combat.
jerseyboy609 (on 07 December 2008)
to bad this game got shafted in sales
MetalSabe (on 07 December 2008)
Just bought this game today, hope that a lot more people get to enjoy it as much as I do.
FSUsmartboi (on 05 December 2008)
I just bought this game yesterday at bestbuy it is amazing, it definitely deserve more sales.
outlawauron (on 04 December 2008)
I find it highly unlikely that sales dropped this week......
Drage (on 04 December 2008)
Just finished it.

Holy fuck, amazing game!

Now Sega, use this same game engine and make Skies of Arcadia 2!!!!
darthdevidem01 (on 03 December 2008)
Brought it today!!!!

going to play it now!
Zlejedi (on 03 December 2008)
Looks like 400k might be possible
Aj_habfan (on 03 December 2008)
It will increase, hardware rose a ton.
outlawauron (on 03 December 2008)
YES! An increase in Others! We need an increase in NA too!
kutasek (on 02 December 2008)
pretty decent legs.
jerseyboy609 (on 02 December 2008)
@Nyanks, Dude, I dont even like jrpgs at all and this game captured my heart. I have never heard of persona, never played final fantasy, or IU or any of that shit. Most jrpg games are not worth it IMO. Maybe I should give them a chance, but they take up soooo much time!!
NYANKS (on 02 December 2008)
@jerseyboy609, but does it rock harder than Persona 4? *runs away*

But really, I love Persona 3 FES and I'm sure 4 will be amazing, but this is the JRPG of the year to me.
jerseyboy609 (on 01 December 2008)
This game rocks
outlawauron (on 30 November 2008)
DLC is scheduled for January NYANKS.

@ darth

about time punk. :P
darthdevidem01 (on 30 November 2008)
I have decided to buy this
Mirson (on 30 November 2008)
This game is excellent. Very fun battle system. The cutscenes of characters' lips just moving is boring to watch. 9.3/10
Dgc1808 (on 29 November 2008)
*sighs*... Another great game that didn't get the sales it deserves. Well... I know 2 more copies that will be bought b4 the end of they year. Mine and my Bro's :-)
Torillian (on 28 November 2008)
No Nyanks, NA is getting the DLC as well, just not as soon, as it is already available in Japan
NYANKS (on 28 November 2008)
DLC only in Japan? FAIL.
Xen (on 28 November 2008)
Ah, and thank you outlawauron - the pics are from your thread.
realill (on 28 November 2008)
NYANKS there should be DLC in Japan with Empire companing
NYANKS (on 28 November 2008)
Oh and wouldn'y a sequel to this game be a cool idea. I love these characters too much, must have moar!
NYANKS (on 28 November 2008)
What is the DLC? Someone tell me!
Simulacrum (on 28 November 2008)
We will get it don't worry..
realill (on 28 November 2008)
RUN Valkyria Chronicles western sales RUN, we need this DLC!!!
outlawauron (on 27 November 2008)
Drops now become crucial. It'll decide whether this gets to 350k or ends past 500k. Get Valkyria Chronicles!
tao (on 27 November 2008)
Valkyria has been rated best jRPG so far this generation on gamerankings and metacritic ^^

A great start for the PS3's exclusive jRPG list. The budget of the game is supposedly really small too btw, about 1/3 of what Lost Odyssey cost (from neogaf). So they should be near even now.
Lafiel (on 27 November 2008)
@ mrstickball )

As far as I know Segata-san always was pro exclusivity...
mrstickball (on 27 November 2008)
Hopefully Sega ports this one for some X360 love....

Segata Sanshiro - Make it happen!
Drage (on 27 November 2008)
Hands down, the game of the year!
realill (on 26 November 2008)
I have managed to make some guys on forums to buy this game ;). It actually easy, since almost everyone who played it, really enjoyed it.
makingmusic476 (on 26 November 2008)
This game deserves better sales. We need to get the word out!

I managed to talk a co-worker into pre-ordering the game a few weeks before release, and another co-worker plans to buy it when she gets her ps3 around Christmas, but that's not enough!
outlawauron (on 25 November 2008)
I'm glad you turned around Okey.
Egghead (on 25 November 2008)
Is this selling as well as Infinite Undiscovery in EU?
errorrrr (on 25 November 2008)
OkeyDokey: on some level it is, this game is a mile stones ahead of its crowd. MGS 4 on the other hand? Not really besides the visuals.
kutasek (on 25 November 2008)
it sold 4 week to the same amount it sold 1 week. I think it's good as it is.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 25 November 2008)
I changed my mind, I really like it now...

Mostly 'cause Selvaria's so badass @_@
Triple X (on 23 November 2008)
One of the best games this generation. I bought the game and didn't expected to be so drawn into the characters. The game was just epic!
outlawauron (on 22 November 2008)
Well, we Okey to get it and he didn't like the demo at all! Yay!
akuma587 (on 22 November 2008)
Honestly one of the most well-designed RPG's I have played in awhile. Really different by SRPG standards too. Its incorporation of Western elements is great!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 22 November 2008)
I bought this because no one would shut up about how amazing it is and I don't see what all the fuss is about ;_;

I mean, it's good, but people are saying it's better than MGS4! D:
ninjascroll (on 22 November 2008)
Most Original Gameplay of the year with a great story to boot.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 21 November 2008)
Damn, gotta buy this game, i will fer surwe when i get the cash, being poor kinda sucks.
FPSrules (on 21 November 2008)
well it gets released in europe soon, lets see if europeans buy this game. its doing good considering the fact it has little to no advertising

from wat i hear its a really great game, i get it eventually
kutasek (on 21 November 2008)
Maybe it's gonna have legs like disegea, i mean it sold around 100,000k just in u.s.
*~Onna76~* (on 21 November 2008)
Common, common, buy this game!! I'll keep on saying this until people run crazy to the stores and begging for a copy :-P
Simulacrum (on 21 November 2008)
Most people buy this in beginning of 2009.There is too much to play for Ps3 owners.I personaly will get it in month...Too much to play.
NYANKS (on 20 November 2008)
Next to MGS4 this is my Game of the Year.
tao (on 20 November 2008)
this is a Tactical RPG. You cant compare this to a Infinite Undiscovery, or tales of vesperia. There's a big difference in popularity between these two genres. Especially in the EU and US.

Valkyria is selling well for a niche game, without any marketing campaign behind it. It'll get 300k sales for sure and hopefully 500k on the long run.
kutasek (on 19 November 2008)
oops i mean 10000
kutasek (on 19 November 2008)
I hope it keeps up it seems to sell about near 10,00k.
I hope we will see 20,000k this week for NA. Do not pass up this game.
outlawauron (on 19 November 2008)
The only ads that I've seen are in magazines.

EU's third week is still better than its first.
ExileDreamer (on 19 November 2008)
This game is hidden gem for the PS3. Its doing pretty decent since it has had little advertising. I do think that this game will do well in the long run.
whatever (on 19 November 2008)

This will outsell IU and TOV.
ninjascroll (on 19 November 2008)
I think they released it at the right time beside Fallout 3 what new rpgs are out or coming out for the PS3 none until next year.
*~Onna76~* (on 19 November 2008)
Oh shees forget the hypes buy this game! I blame Sega for releasing this game around a very tricky period. Better should have wait with releasing until February or even March.
Zlejedi (on 19 November 2008)
european launch was pretty tragic from sega with 31st of October and availability problems ( i preordered and still had to wait till 4th of November before it was dispatched.

Hopefully it will keep 10k sales levels in Other by spread through word of mouth.
Egghead (on 18 November 2008)
Buh buh teh ToV would sell better on PS3!!!111oneoneone

Hopefully now the fanboys will get it. The PS3 has the Japan advantage and in this case and Disgaea 3, it helped a lot, but the deal breaker is the US market where hardcore games sell

I wouldnt be worried, Infinite Undiscovery is showing great legs in both NA and EU
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 18 November 2008)
This really is sad, sega does make a game worth playing for once and....


It should get better though.
Kantor (on 18 November 2008)
Why is this game selling so badly? It's awesome!
FPSrules (on 17 November 2008)
this game is hott, im not into these type of games that much, but the demo was hott, i hope this game sells. sega is awesome and i feel bad that peter moore destroyed sega, wat a gretty asshole
Shadowblind (on 16 November 2008)
Good lord, only 6k first week in Europe? W T F?!
Bagaren85 (on 16 November 2008)
Poor Sega. Finally a great game, and it cant sell like it deserve.

Who to blame. Feel bad :(
Torillian (on 16 November 2008)
Took me 32 hours to beat, but I would argue that that equates to more than 32 hours from the average JRPG. Valkyria has no grinding, every battle is like an event, and if you aren't battling then you are watching the story.
Dark Odin (on 16 November 2008)
how many hous to beat it? 40 ?
Damstr8 (on 16 November 2008)
its sold pretty decent. a lot more than i thought
NYANKS (on 16 November 2008)
OMG this game is freakin fantastic! Sega......I love youuuuuu! :)
ninjascroll (on 16 November 2008)
I got mine it well worth the loot crazy mix turn and real-time gameplay.

Penholder (on 15 November 2008)
haha... here's hoping for a million sales lifetime! :P haha...
kutasek (on 15 November 2008)
I'm on chapter 12. Wow this game, is better than amazing.
leo-j (on 14 November 2008)
Wow I hadnt known it sold so well in Japan, 210k WW so far is impressive, considering this game has no hype at all..
Slavedemonxi (on 14 November 2008)
I'll hopefully be getting this game soon. I've heard it's amazing.
tao (on 13 November 2008)

Valkyria Chronicles is far from a high budget game. Its just amazingly well crafted and fun to play. I doubt they'll lose money on this.

Its also not a real jRPG, but a tactical one like Disgaea. Its niche to the bone.
*~Onna76~* (on 13 November 2008)
Why do some people whine with every PS3 game about online and trophies? Cut it out! This game is already amazing without both. For long, people were nagging about the PS3 not having an exclusive RPG and now it has one, so... GET IT ;)
CATCHORA (on 13 November 2008)
wtf is wrong with ppl? this game is awesome everybody should pick this up, no wonder all of the RPGs gone to the 360 .
realill (on 12 November 2008)
Seraphic_Sixaxis There are no online for this game. I guess Sega can make it multi if it will be successful in US. Still lets hope Sega is working on DLC instead of port :)
kutasek (on 12 November 2008)
it has dlc.
ruibing (on 12 November 2008)
Sega is really partnering up with the PS3 crowd well with this and Yakuza.
Seraphic_Sixaxis (on 12 November 2008)
Cant wait to pick up this PS3 exclusive, Sega + Sony + sJRPG + exclusive = Win.

Oh does this have online btw?
arsenal009 (on 12 November 2008)
Why did sega not multiplat this? They will probably end up losing money on this.
Simulacrum (on 12 November 2008)
Hmm seems like there has been some release problems at europe..They said here in Finland I get it friday.
Xen (on 12 November 2008)
Hey, europe got a 2x boost of sales over the first week... here's hoping for legs!
danielhiru (on 12 November 2008)
I wish games this good and unique would sell more, lets hope for good legs
Dark Odin (on 12 November 2008)
YEAH! hope that have legs in NA to make 200k, since that in Europe it´ll take long to reach 100k
palitococo (on 12 November 2008)
Yeahhh!! great US numbers, in this month with so many most have in "now shiping" 38K its really great.
mrstickball (on 12 November 2008)
I hope it continues to do well. But not well enough so it gets a X360 port ;)

Either way, 37k is pretty good in NA for a game of this nature.
Yakuzaice (on 11 November 2008)
People might be waiting because they knew CC had it for $45 this week. That probably doesn't account for many sales, but that is why I haven't bought it yet.
errorrrr (on 11 November 2008)
37K???? c'mon guys... this game is MILES ahead of Disgaea 3... what the hell???
outlawauron (on 11 November 2008)
Brilliant! Already past 200k! Keep going baby!
kutasek (on 11 November 2008)
good numbers for srpg.
Bladeneo (on 11 November 2008)
I really wish games as great as this recieved more exposure; ah well, hopefully sales in EU can continue to increase steadily over the holidays. If this hits 500k WW it'll be a success.
CrazzyMan (on 11 November 2008)
So game will easy pass 300k, good.
After all, it was released during last 10 week, when over 30 GREAT games are being released.
No one can afford 10 games per week, neither 15 games per month. VC will have good sales in long term, after all it`s an AAA SRPG. =)
Dark Odin (on 11 November 2008)
Good VgChartz!
Simulacrum (on 11 November 2008)
Im gonna get this at Europe..
outlawauron (on 11 November 2008)
Yay for sales numbers!!!

This means the game will do at least 75k in Others beating my projections!
RVDondaPC (on 10 November 2008)
It just barely came out in EU/NA. That's why there is no sales data for it there.
realill (on 10 November 2008)
Good Game indeed.
Are sales realy that low for US/EU or vgchartz just does not track it properly?
jerseyboy609 (on 09 November 2008)
I love this game!!
darthdevidem01 (on 09 November 2008)

just like IU, TOV (lowest in Tale series) n SO4 to come
ruibing (on 09 November 2008)
Definitely the best rated JRPG for this generation so far, I hope it does well. JSRPGs have been a bit of a niche title, but I hope people understand its a lot more interactive than all the other ones.
pbroy (on 08 November 2008)
Just got this game today. It's sooo good. Best PS3 game ever.
headhunterz67 (on 07 November 2008)
No charts for Europe??
Impulsivity (on 07 November 2008)
This game is SO good, I have at least 5 A+ games to play but I can't pull myself away from this game. It is trumping Resistance 2, Fallout 3, Little Big Planet, Dead Space and Wii Music at the same time! OK kidding about Wii Music
outlawauron (on 06 November 2008)
Shut up starcraft!
Crystalchild (on 05 November 2008)
out since nearly 6 days in europe. and yeah, this game is truly nice, and very unique in its art.
gogo everyone, buy it!

850k till 1 million, this should make it going by Japan's legs.
Dark Odin (on 05 November 2008)

i have it and its bloody brilliant, best music ive heard in a game, grafix are sickeningly good.
errorrrr (on 10 October 2008)
this game had pretty good legs for the first 10 weeks... let's hope we get 500K LTD world wide for this game.
Simulacrum (on 10 October 2008)
Good demo.Sega suprised me...
How come this has sold so much at Japan?
And this is not JPRG.Otherwise you can say Advance Wars is jprg.

That grey-haired girl looks so much like duke from TOV, they must be twins.
Dark Odin (on 08 October 2008)
demo tomorrow in Qore
Simulacrum (on 02 October 2008)
This...Looks like advance wars.
Aj_habfan (on 30 September 2008)
Data shows a November release, I am guessing the 14th.
outlawauron (on 17 September 2008)
I do hope the store I work gets this in ..... early.
Skeeuk (on 17 September 2008)
day one purchase for me come november.
Aj_habfan (on 06 September 2008)
Lmao, that is just plain impossible.
CrazzyMan (on 05 September 2008)
This game will reach 500k LTD in Japan alone.
FinalEvangelion (on 01 September 2008)
Selling 1800 on Week 16! Looks like to could hit 200k after the holidays.
TyePhoid_PAL (on 31 August 2008)
This is out November ish isnt it? EU that is.
errorrrr (on 29 August 2008)
I am gonna hope for at least 200,000 in NA sales for the first 10 weeks.
errorrrr (on 29 August 2008)
I hope this game will get the word of mouth and enough hype on the internet to show some long good legs. It's really difficult though for a Original IP. Gogo Valkyria Chronicles!
outlawauron (on 16 August 2008)
This game is having good legs now. It's selling 1450 in week 16!
outlawauron (on 14 August 2008)
This needs to be changed to the stratgety genre.
outlawauron (on 09 August 2008)
@ SuperJon

Im not saying it will, but it has a better chance than that.
SuperJon (on 03 August 2008)
I hope you're joking Odin, this doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell of hitting 500K.
Dark Odin (on 01 August 2008)
500k by end of the year I think.
Heavenly_King (on 23 July 2008)
I will buy this game for sure!! :D
errorrrr (on 19 July 2008)
Expected to be 200K in Japan... but yea.
tombi123 (on 11 July 2008)

Yeah, it has a good chance. It is still selling almost 2k a week in Japan. Will take some time to reach FE though.
Aprisaiden (on 04 June 2008)
120k sales in Japan is preety good so far...

Hopefully it'll do better in NA / Others though ...
outlawauron (on 20 May 2008)
Anyone think this has a chance of passing Fire Emblem?
MontanaHatchet (on 18 May 2008)
Fila: It's a Strategy RPG.
Munkeh111 (on 18 May 2008)
Expected better sales in Japan tbh. It might get a boost with MGS 4 boosting HW and SW in June
FilaBrasileiro (on 17 May 2008)
I thought this was a strategy game....
Aprisaiden (on 15 May 2008)
110k in Japan - not bad ...

Hopefully it'll break 500k world-wide!
Dark Odin (on 15 May 2008)
it´s doing just good. PS3 base is small, this game isn´t famous. with the release in europe and american could reach the 500k mark.
outlawauron (on 07 May 2008)
@ Onna

Some people doesn't understand that with niche genres, userbase size doesn't matter. It's those hardcore fans who buy all the SRPGs.

The fact that a new ip has a chance at passing a well known series (Fire Emblem) and become the high selling SRPG (Japan only, this gen) in Japan is amazing.
Dark Odin (on 06 May 2008)
IGN only had goos things to say about it:

and according to them:
Release Date:
US: November 2008
*~Onna76~* (on 06 May 2008)
@Superion, you're joking right, this game would have bombed if it would have released on the WII for sure. Unless you would have released it on the PS2, but better sales than these you wouldn't have got.
*~Onna76~* (on 06 May 2008)
Normally my name would stand here with owning the game, but I'd rather wait until the US version, which hopefully will release "soon"! The fact that this game is selling so good, shows how big of RPG fans PS3 owners are in Japan. This game is a sign of that people want to have these kind of games.
Dark Odin (on 04 May 2008)
hope that sells at least 30k in its second week.
outlawauron (on 03 May 2008)
Scratch that. FE sold 170k. It will be the 2nd best selling then.
outlawauron (on 03 May 2008)
Hmm, I didn't think about it, but this could be the highest selling SRPG of this generation in Japan.

FE sold 150k I Believe.
SuperJon (on 30 April 2008)
It was marketed very well in Japan. The problem is the platform.
animefobber (on 24 April 2008)
it'd be pretty funny if this game turned out to be a killer app for the ps3 in Japan. But based on the initial shipments i'm pretty sure this things only going to sell at about the same rate as disgaea 3.
Dark Odin (on 21 April 2008)
sad that shipment is only 100k in its first week .. this could sell very well in japan with the right marketing ... it will be a good game with poor sales I think.
outlawauron (on 21 April 2008)
Added a few high quality, larger screens.

Neos (on 14 April 2008)
no problem, it was on the shinobi site =)
Torillian (on 13 April 2008)
Oh cool someone found a box art. My google searches totally failed me. Much thanks to whoever found it.

Thought it would've done better in
thewastedyouth (on 08 January 2013)
why are Japan sales so low, isn't this
what they love??? wtf are they playing
DitchPlaya (on 02 January 2013)
Sad really, they reward us for
supporting the franchise by taking it
away to the PSP to make cheaper more
Japanese orientated games. At least
release it digitally and add tropies!
