Japan not keen on No More Heroes

PS3/360 remake struggles in slow week.

Japan hasn't gone wild for Grasshopper's PS3 and Xbox 360 adaptations of No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise.

The game debuted seventh and eighth in Media Create's regional chart, the PS3 version selling 16,000 compared to 15,000 on Xbox 360.

At the top of the software chart ths week was old favourite New Super Mario Bros. Wii with a winning score of 32,000 sales. That's not a lot. However, lifetime sales of NSMB Wii are 3.687m, and that is a lot.

Friend Collection was second, Pro Baseball Spirits 2010 third (PSP) and fourth (PS3), Fist of the North Star: Warriors fifth and Pokemon Ranger: Tracks of Light sixth. Wii Fit Plus and Yakuza 4 rounded out the top 10.

In hardware, DS took top honours (31,255) followed by PSP (30,550). Sony's PS3 (25,590) was ahead of Nintendo's Wii (24,344), which were both miles ahead of Xbox 360 (2442). Old but not dead PS2 bottomed the piled with 1531 sales.
