@Kenology If it did 156k in Japan first week, it will do 100k in U.S first week. Actually I think it has a good chance of doing double or close to it what it did in Japan first week. ToS was more popular in the West than it was in Japan.

VGC had us thinking it had legs, giving it a shot at the first ToS's sales. Finding out it wasn't possible was a bit disappointing.

Besides that, the game did fine. 240k not just for a Tales game, but a Tales spinoff. I wanted this to be the first million selling JRPG though

Hmm showing consistent sales and not dying off. Interesting. Well seems it'll make it solidly to the holidays. Well done.

Looking about about around 300k by end of the year in Japan. No scheduled release date for PAL yet but doubtful if that area would be a big selling region anyways. However ToS has pretty large brand here in America considering the last one on GC was quite a hit considering. So I'd say it'll open to decent sales and really get those holiday boosts and hopefully be able to hang around to at least push it over 500k by Q1 2009. Hope for more haha. But in an unsaturated market of RPG's should have that many problems in America.

Yes I'm hoping it can hold onto that 10k a week as well. I mean we all knew it would have large dropoffs but we were still hoping that it could hold on. And it's quite possible considering very few Wii titles have held on. So far only the Wii series and Mario Kart Wii which leaves very few legs titles. Maybe this can be added to the bunch.

Well except that Microsoft pays Japanese companies huge sums of money and often funds development of their RPGs to get them on the 360.

Pure profit is unlikely to be beaten.

And you think that the console with the highest userbase in Japan will be dominant in a genre made solely in Japan, mostly for Japanese people?

Well, I can't say I disagree.

@Montana, proud?? lol. Just stating the facts. I'm sure the developer doesn't care about the install base, just sales of the game.

I don't think there is any doubt that by the end of this generation, the Wii will be the dominate JRPG console.

MontanaHatchet posted 19/07/2008, 10:12
Whatever: Hmm, you must be so proud that this game is set to outsell Blue Dragon, especially considering that the Wii userbase in Japan is ten times that of the 360's (not to mention that the 360 userbase was even smaller when Blue Dragon launched) and that Blue Dragon is a new IP versus an established IP.

Claude: This is selling well for a spinoff, but plenty of spinoffs have sold high amounts and far greater amounts than this.

But then again, anyone who would have expected better must be an angry fanboy out to get the Wii. Besides, where would the outrage have been for other Tales games? Constant tracking of sales number is a fairly recent phenomenon, and even if people were closely tracking games back when the last Tales spinoff was launched (when was that, now?), it wouldn't matter because nothing except a computer could scan the entirety of the internet to search for bits of text from someone dissatisfied with the sales of a specific game.

"Tales spin-offs usually don't sell all that great."

Actually they do...for spinoffs, of course. Quite telling considering that this may be the best selling spinoff yet.

Of course this was never really a problem until angry fanboys started pretending like this game wasn't selling well. I can only wonder where the false outrage for all the other Tales was.

On its own, a pretty solid game, but doesn't quite live up to Tales of Symphonia imo.

the others sale are 100-150k so its good for a low budget tales game, so namco cant complain, they always release the wrong tales games in west, so i hope the fans and hardcore players buy tales of graces F, so namco continue to release tales games in west. its our last chance. i have the wii version of graces and i am going to buy the us and the others

game quality is not even close to ToS, but still a great game
