Ratchet & Clank Future Tanking In Japan?

Ratchet & Clank Future was released in Japan last week to a dismal reception.? Hailed as the number one Playstation 3 title to date, Sony only moved 11,814 copies in it’s first week.? Ironically, this was the same week the 40gb PS3 was dropped and also the same week that Dynasty Warriors 6 came out.? In contrast, DW6 sold 181,926 copies.? Even DW6 on the 360 moved 28,924 copies.

So what gives?? Do the Japanese not like the fruits of American developers labor?? Stateside R&C have moved a total of 182,154 copies.? This is ironically close to what DW6 did in it’s first week.? It’s hard to believe that a game that’s as gorgeous and fun to play as R&C hasn’t even moved 200,000 copies world wide yet.? If R&C is the best offering for PS3, how well will Uncharted do?? I’m holding my breath…
