Japanese retail blogger Oosaka King has compiled a itemize of what he believes are the games that did worst for stores in 2009. These aren't meet slummy sellers, they're also games with baritone margins or another problems that kept retailers from profiting.

Topping the list: Blood of Bahamut, a DS RPG free by Square Enix on August 6, meet a some weeks after Dragon Quest IX. No mystery ground that digit didn't sell! Monster Hunter Tri, which may be more surprising, was the blogger's number digit choice, cod to baritone margins on the standard edition, as substantially as some unspecified shipping issues from Capcom.

The full itemize of what digit merchandiser believes was unprofitable in 2009 is after the break. It features a some more bounteous names, same Sonic, Mario, and Gran Turismo. The preponderance of field games is belike cod to the fact that retailers equipped artefact more of the bounteous games, expecting more sales, and equipped presumably niche titles more judiciously.
