Dragon Quest IX becomes best selling game in the world
During the third quarter, Dragon Quest IX not only managed to be the best selling DS game in the world, but the best selling game, period. When you consider the fact that the RPG has not even been been sold outside of Japan yet, that is an immense accomplishment.
Between July and September, Square Enix's handheld romp sold an impressive 3.93 million copies, single-handedly giving the Japanese market a huge boost. It defeated Wii Sports Resort and its 3.0 million, as well as Pokemon Heartgold/SoulSilver with 2.1 million.
The top five global sales for Q3 are as follows:
- 1. Dragon Quest IX: 3,925,000
- 2. Wii Sports Resort: 3,014,000
- 3. Madden NFL 10: 2,612,000
- 4. Pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver: 2,068,000
- 5. Halo 3: ODST: 1,847,000
So yeah, Dragon Quest IX deserves major kudos for beating stiff competition while restricted to an ailing market. An undeniably amazing achievement. Setup email comments
