http://home.pacific.net.sg/~fhha/andrewspix/magcover.jpg I managed to find a really old copy of one of those Jap mags I was talking about. I'll do some translation: 1. The first column represent the current position(in terms of revenue) of that game for the week. The second column is the game's position for the week earlier. 2. The second coulmn are the games' titles. 3. The last one represent the amount of credits/$$$ sucked in by that game in that week. 4. The fine print below is a list of the arcades who provided the figures. They include PLABO, Shinjuku sports central, Segaworld, etc... So, ranked first is VF3 with 76478, VOOT is a distant second with 15776 and SF EX is third with 9811. Conclusion: With so much $$$ sucked in every week(trust me, its more or less the same every week, just look at VF3's previous ranking), you want to tell me VF3 was not popular? VF3's closest competitor, VOOT, only managed 1/5 of its total earnings! To Mr.FatEgo: Yeah right, "187981567465456417867813567 Japanese players can't all be wrong, and the fact that VF2 was still being played late in VF3tb's life in Japan really says something." Bwahhahahahahhahah... All those Jap players who played VF2 during VF3's time must have played it at home(hahaha...yeah right) cause even SF Zero2 alpha managed to get more $$$ than VF2. Duh!
