This seems to have a bigger pull on european countries.

China 0 ? Hopefully it will be a good hit there.

Guys, the graphic is from Google.ca and they surely forgot to add "Shenmue" search written in Chinese and Japanese ideograms. ;)

No wonder they want to add a Portuguese localisation.

USA and CDN with a serch volume index of around 60 ain't bad at all. And Europe... Portugal at a 100. Go Portugal! :D UK at 99... God save the Queen! France at 81 is really strong too, Germany not looking too bad at 50. Italy 34.... meh!

About China: I don't think we should worry about the Chinese market too much. Software is almost pirate only so I don't see any game making a good turnover there from software sales alone. Also, there's the great firewall and I thik Sony banned the PS4 from the mainland market until recently. Or was it the Chinese government? I don't remember, but I know that hardware sales for PS4 in China have been very, very low there.

Not sure how reliable those google figures about China are because Google struggles big time with the great firewall and Chinese people tend to use Baidu a lot more than Google anyway.

On a site note: Japan's search volume at 8? WTF?!

EDIT: Duh! Should have come up with that Chinese and Japanese idiom thing myself. I sort of thought Google would automatically throw together the search terms even in different languages.

Anyway, while we're at it, here's for Mainland China and Taiwan.

Hope the link works. The Mainland at 73 and Taiwan at 100. Doesn't sound bad at all. That said, I sill see all of the problems mentioned above with the Chinese market, piracy probably being number 1.

On a side note: If you look at the Chinese search terms for Shenmue, number 3 is 莎木下载 which shows us part of the problem. It means Shenmue download. :lol:
