Looks like you and I have a bit of catching up to do readers. Let's start off with a bang shall we, say...Dragon Quest IX release information?

Seeing as how most of us aren't in Japan, we all missed a gaming release of epic proportions this weekend as Dragon Quest IX is now readily available across the Pacific. But just how much did No.9 sell? 2.3 Million copies. In two days. To put that into perspective, that already beats former Nintendo DS King Pokemon Diamond/Pearl's opening sales,...
