It's official: Mega Man is the most milked series ever


In the recent "Gamer's Edition" Guinness World Records book, the Mega Man series was certified with the record of "Most Number of Games in a Single Series." That's not too hard to believe -- there were about a million Mega Man games in the main series and various spinoff series before the DS, and the DS games have been coming in multiples.

What's most amusing about this record is that, according to Capcom's blog, Guinness arrived at it without even considering all the Mega Man games -- basically, they failed to arrive at a full count, and Mega Man still beat other series. They didn't just forget Japan-only releases like Wily & Right no Rockboard, either -- Mega Man Soccer failed to make the list, and that was a U.S.-released game starring the original Blue Bomber. No doubt it omits Hi-Tech Expressions' Mega Man and Mega Man III as well.

Japanese hardware sales, 4 September - 10 September: Thick Irish accent edition

My God.So, weh here a' the Fanboy decided ta' switch nationalities for a Wii bit. (I could na' resist the pun!) It seems that o'er in Japan, the DS Lite has taken a bit of ah slide. The only explanation weh can offer is that a giant shipment ah Guinness draft arrived a' the pubs, and people were just too busy drinkin' to spend money on such a fine system. The PSP sales, o' course, went up, as people needed more fancy coasters to set their drinks upon.

- DS Lite: 113,831 115,108 (50.28%)
- PSP: 29,141 1,642 (5.97%)
- PS2: 19,882 2,821 (12.43%)
- GBA SP: 2,104 647 (23.52%)
- Game Boy Micro: 1,801 10 (0.56%)
- Xbox 360: 1,094 156 (12.48%)
- DS Phat: 1,058 738 (230.63%)
- Gamecube: 696 159 (18.60%)
- GBA: 13 9 (40.91%)
- Xbox: 5 5 (infinite%)
- Wii: 0 0 (0%)

Fellow blogger Ludwig, over a' Joystiq, decided ta' include the Wii in the sales charts for this one week, and since weh pretty much try ta' emulate his every whimsical notion are the Wii Fanboy, after oll, weh decided ta' do so as well.
