Surprised Lost Odyssey didn’t make the list. Didn’t realize it sold so low. Great game

It's worth noting that this list that Famitsu released seems to be lacking the Platinum collection re-releases for 360 games. For instance Ace Combat 6 moves up to #2 with both original and platinum combined, while MH Frontier Online moves up to #1 with all versions combined (though MH is cheating a bit as it includes retail sales of expansion packs I believe). Katamari move up to 140k if you combine it's platinum collection version with the original version.

XB - 8 of the Top 10 were Japanese games.

X360 - 8 of the Top 10 were Japanese games.

X1 - 1 of the Top 10 were Japanese games.

Hmm, I wonder why the X1 did so badly in Japan?

0 if you want to get technical. While the first Dead Rising game was made by Capcom Production Studio 1 in Japan, the series was then passed to Canadian studio Blue Castle Games, which Capcom acquired and made Capcom Vancouver after the success of Dead Rising 2. So DR 2-4 were all made in Canada, not Japan.

Xbox One was definitely lacking in JP exclusives, it only received a handful like Crimson Dragon, D4, and a a select handful of others, all of which were niche titles. The only significant JP exclusive that MS got for the whole generation, Scalebound, ended up being cancelled. Hopefully they do a much better job on Xbox Series and have some JP exclusives currently in development to push it there.

I want a new Blue Dragon and not those lame DS games.

Liked Blue Dragon, although the turn based combat was massively repetitive. Then again so was DQ XI, guess that is the system flaw.
