Killzone 2 sells 20K it’s first day in Japan

 

Sony’s genre redefining first person shooter Killzone 2 went on sale in Japan yesterday, to a reasonable amount of success.  Though first person shooters aren’t nearly as popular in the East as they are in the West, the title sold 20,000 copies it’s first day, and is on track to out sell Resistance 2, which sold 33,000 it’s opening week.  Further, reports are indicating that the game is selling out at some retailers.  The Killzone 2 servers were updated earlier this week to allow for the influx of Japanese players in the game.Monster Hunter G(Wii) and Danger Report 3(PSP) also went on sale yesterday, selling about 92,000 and 20,000 copies respectively.

The PS3 has just come off a massive week in Japan, due in part to the release of FFVII: Advent Children and the FFXIII demo.  The console topped the charts, selling over 60,000 consoles, dwarfing both the Wii at 13,000 and the 360 at 8,000.  To date, the PS3 has been the top selling console in Japan for 2009.
