Inconceivable! It’s a Marvelous Entertainment game in the top-ten. Twice! It looks like porting No More Heroes to the HD systems was the right choice after all. The series is more popular now, and the added exposure probably created a bit of an additional audience for it, especially since MMV made the effort to add Japanese voices to the game. Hopefully, they’ll fix the issues with the ports and find a publisher in the West willing to bring them over.
…no, Ignition. You stop eyeing them right now. *smacks hand*

It seems the uncensored nature of the Xbox 360 version of No More Heroes allowed it to debut neck-in-neck with the PS3 port. Speaking of neck-in-neck, the PSP and PS3 versions of Pro Baseball Spirits 2010 continue to sell very close to each other for yet another week. While the PSP version might have a “portable” advantage, the PS3 version has an exclusive online mode that allows for downloading of updated stats as the game season progresses.
