Famitsu have published the best-selling original games of 2008, with Sega among the top publishers. "Original game/IP" means a game that is not a sequel or part of a series.
Here is the list of Sega games in the Top 20:
- #8: Valkyria Chronicles - Sold 141,589
- #11: Seventh Dragon - Sold 108,570
- #13: World Destruction - Sold 93,104
- #17: 428 - Sold 64,188
Some upcoming Sega titles also made the Top 10 for most anticipated original games, as voted for by Famitsu readers. Bayonetta made #2, and Infinite Space made #7. It seems Sega's partnership with Platinum Games has been a massive success!
Famitsu call original games "rookie titles", a phrase that has consistently popped up in translations. Only now do I know what it means!
