It's A Big Week For PlayStation 3 Games In Japan

A new face joins the list of best-selling games in Japan this past week as A.C.E.: Another Century's Episode: R for the PlayStation 3 becomes the country's currently best-selling game. It's not the only PS3 game enjoying top 10 status.

The other, which debuted in third place on Media Create's sales chart, is Chou Jigen Game: Neptune. You know, the one about the "game industry" that features busty, anime-style anthropomorphised video game consoles? It must be a very good game if it's selling so well.

Last week's champ, Wii Party, continues its march to a million sales in Japan, closely followed by Level-5's latest sports role-playing game for the Nintendo DS, Inazuma Eleven 3: Sekai e no Chousen!!

    Man, a new ACE game... another reason to replace my dead PS3, alongside the Yakuza games. I think I'll wait till that list is longer.

    woot, now if Aus Post would actually deliver my copy of ACE R *glares at Aus Post*

      ditto mate... still waiting on mine, was meant to deliver today dammit ><!

    Got my copy and it awesome. Well apart from the fact they completely nerfed the macross units compared to 3.

    And new system for special attacks isn't cool >.>
    Its similar to the Renbu system for DW6.

    Does A.C.E.: Another Century’s Episode: R have English subtitles or even English menu screens? I'd be interested in picking it up, but only if I can understand what's going on.
