According to them, X has only sold a fraction of VIII and IX. The reported number is 420,000+, while the previous two sold 2 million+ each. This was in 2 days, for X it's 4 days. Wow.

Now say whatever you want in defense of DQ X, like it's an MMO and sub fees mean more than unit sales, or it's getting good reception, it's a fun game, SE is profitting, MMOs are fun, cool whatever. All valid points. But my point is not to look at sub fees, which is only good for SE, but at the drastic reduction in initial buyers. A lot can't and won't get it b/c it's an MMO, so many miss out. Many fans are lost and disinterested. So what if SE makes a little extra overtime? It damages their reputation with fans and that means more. Clearly, Japan save a small portion is turned off.

I mean it's worse than the difference between FF XIII and XIII-2. I'm just worried this will do some damage and affect things in the future.

I'll still get it, assuming it makes its way over here.

Not because it's an MMO, but because it's Dragon Quest.
I admit....I did not see that coming. <_< - Mini

It still sold 6 times as much as FF XI, and FF XII and XIII had normal FF sales again.
The people who don't want an MMO will just skip it and wait for the next game, just like the FF fans whodidn' want an MMO did after FF XI.

They had to double the amount of servers, so it probably did better than they expected.

One speculation for the lower numbers is that a lot of people are waiting for the WiiU version to come out.

Just watch, when the Wii U comes out, the game sales will go way up.
