Yeah I've had it preordered since before it launched in Japan, so I never bothered with looking for a Japanese copy. I think the EU Version's numbers were actually revamped though, I remember seeing a couple figures that indicated they sold less...but still far far far outsold all other games.

Yeah, according to VGChartz.com, it's sold just under a million so far, including Japan. Looks like around 700K in 2 weeks in Europe...odd that UK sales dominated Japanese sales by quite a substantial amount. Of course, the VGChartz #'s do not include download purchases either. But, I think alot of the Japanese (as well as EU and US) slowdown in PS3 purchases are most likely attributed to people waiting for the new 80g SKU's for MGS4 and now the more recently announced GTAIV bundles.
