Wii's Japanese kingdom greatly increasing.  Yeah, insert your <when will they get tired of Wii Sports> joke here, but I'm more than a little astounded that the gap keeps getting wider and wider - the PS3 is a great system, and I would hope it would start getting a little bit of traction there by now.

Nintendo hasn't won Japan until some of the obscure, niche RPGs start getting announced. When the Atlus support is full blown, and we see a better variety of titles then I may call it a game.

Well, since they keep releasing them on the PS2 it could be a while.  slywink

It is only a matter of time before the Wii gets more RPG support, given their install base and growth. They may not be FF style RPGs, but there will be something. I am curious how Chronicles and Dragon Quest Swords come out.

According to Shane on the 1up show DQS is not really an RPG at all. More of an on rails fight guys with swords kind of thing.

Well, that could be fun too if done right. I'm not surprised it isn't a RPG, but I wonder if they will incorporate some RPGish elements into it.

I couldn't agree more. The real measuring stick is when all the JRPG's and 3rd parties that fled the N64 for the greener pastures of the PS1 come home to Big N's Wii. I can't see how this won't eventually happen once the PS2 sails into the sunset. Unfortunately it appears the PS2 has some ability to rotate the Earth backwards and prolong the sunset.  Roll Eyes  But all in time...

[Edit] BTW those May DS sales figures for Japan are just insane!  eek

The PS2's continued strength in the US is really amazing but it isn't nearly as strong in Japan now.  It's been down in the gutter with the PS3 and 360 over there.

I don't see how the Wii's dominance is so surprising, the PS3 has almost NO games in it's library worth purchasing the system for.
