The only other Xbox 360 title to place in the top 25 is Oblivion at number seven, which is likely bolstered by 2,300 yen (US $18.75) discount if you buy the American RPG with Halo 3 or with Trusty Bell (known elsewhere as Eternal Sonata).
Savings aside, Halo 3 has a lot going against it in the Japanese market -- an American-made first-person shooter for Microsoft's unpopular Xbox 360 -- and it still managed to be popular. Master Chief invades Japan September 27, and we'll be interested to see how the Japanese hardware sales are affected by the release.
