it sold more in week 123 (june 20) than in week 10

52,579 vs 46,078

i absolutly love this game - can't wait until we (eu) get the diabolic box

nintendo take notice - we wanted the game long before it was released outside of japan and we were right -> release the games faster and put a good marketing campaign behind each great game

If the game still sell unrealisticly in Europe like that, it'll soon have a half of his total sellls in Europe...

It's absolutly enormous. Never saw a third party game sold like this.

Ok, not only is this game sold out everywhere UK wide but the UK version is going for 50+ second hand on sites like Play.com and I just watched a new and selaed copy on Ebay go for 50.09 and 1:45 delivery.

Wonder if we're gonna see big bumps in the American sales from imports.

Why did this game sell so well in Japan? Is Level 5 gaining notoriety there because of Dragon Quest?

If so, that gives me high hopes for White Knight Chronicles.
