Interesting fun-time mid 2009 updates.
In one of my favorite continuing comparisons, even after all this time Bleach: Heat the Soul 6 (3521) continues to behave incredibly ridiculously like B:HtS 5 (2874).
In another long-running comparison are the DS and Wii Taiko no Tatsujin games. I've on multiple times suggested they looked like they would all meet up around 600K. Well, maybe that was 10-20K too much. As this stand at the end of June it's 586K DS 2, 583K DS 1, and 578K Wii.
Across the entire Taiko series the DS games now take up the #2 and #3 spots, with Wii at #5. For the moment there's still a PS2 game squeezed in at #4.
When the 2008 Top 500 came out I pointed out that DS's Tales of Innocence had ended up with decent legs for a Tales game and broke past that ~200K mark a lot of them stopped at. Well, it looks like Tales of Hearts has done the same thing. Though the more recent PSP Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2 is the best-selling post-PS2 Tales game, Hearts is #2.
We get an update on Wii's One Piece Unlimited Cruise Episode 2. While it has had legs, they haven't been as good as those of Episode 1.
Game Center CX 2 seems to be holding up better compared to its original, though the timing of the infrequent LTD updates relative to launch isn't very similar.
The update on Suikoden Tierkreis (3324) doesn't change much. It's still below any of the main console games, and above anything else. Though at 156K it's not so far behind Suikoden V (2391) at 195K anymore.
