Not Everyone Is Going StarCraft II Crazy

StarCraft II is out. People are buying it. People are playing it. Not everybody, though.

Amazon rankings are sample set of Amazon customers, but they are also a good measure to see what has captured the imagination of the buying public. Here is

Amazon UK:

Amazon Canada:

Amazon Germany:

Amazon France:

And Amazon Japan, where the number one title is the latest game from visual novel maker Type Moon! (Note: Console games and PC games are listed under PC games on

While StarCraft II is not getting a localised Japanese language release — hence, the tepid interest. However, it is possible to play the game on U.S. servers from Japan.

『スタークラフト2』全世界で記録的なトップセールス!!!・・・・・・・・・・但し日本を除く。 [オレ的ゲーム速報@刃]


    No, not everyone, just the countries where it's readily available.
    Besides, if they awanted it in japan, wouldn'
    t they be buying it through amazon US?

      Unless something has changed, Amazon won't ship games outside of the US.

        I bought my collectors edition from Amazon US and I live in Sydney.

    Forget country, what about the people who don't even meet the minimum system requirements to even play the game.

      you Have a computer. right?...

      if you have a computer thats less than 6 years old, it should play it. if your computer is on integrated graphics and thats your problem, you could get a graphics card for $40 that should meet those requirements. as it is, my gpu that cost $170 3 years ago plays it fine on high.

    To be honest, I'm not really interested in SC2. I played the first one to death, but now... ehhh... I'll play it when I play it.

    i just love that a wii game is the 3rd best selling PC game

    It's Japan, do they even like RTS games.


    Oddly enough I did expect that =P For anyone not in the know that "top seller" preorder is the latest visual novel from TypeMoon (the people who did Fate Stay Night and Tsukihime)

    Im not getting it...

    some people register the keys and send em straight back lol

    i didnt buy it, probably wont

    I'm gonna wait till the price drop

    Man... those games in Japan look dull. Really. Really. Dull.

    Man, I am SO looking forward to Witch on a Holy Night!

    StarCraft 2? Nah, not interested. I got enough PC games already, especially RTS.

    Not interested in starcraft 2 the slightest
