Lost Odyssey now #2 on Amazon.com's Xbox 360 chart

Found this info on a thread on Penny-arcade. Lost Odyssey is now the #2 game right behind Call of Duty 4, with better sales than Devil May Cry 4, Halo 3, Guitar Hero 3 and Rock Band.

I'm glad that Microsoft is stepping up their marketing efforts. This game deserves a better push, and I want it to succeed in the marketplace. If it does, not only is the Xbox 360 ensured more support from Mistwalker, it also encourages Japanese developers to continue developing games with a unique touch from their Western counterparts. I wouldn't want every game to turn out like Mass Effect (Note: I do think Mass Effect is a great game....it's just that we Xbox 360 owners deserve some variety every once in a while, and with that, Mistwalker truly delivers).

Here's the link to the Amazon Xbox 360 Bestseller chart.

Here's a screenshot.

  1. But I think overall sales (PS3+Xbox) are still a lot higher than LO. Good showing for LO though, hope it doesn't drop off the chart after the a week or so. It might just be the core audience of the game rushing pre-orders.
