Man, it's going to be awfully difficult to read that script, now that it's been utterly and irreversibly flipped. Now it's words-side-down, so the only thing that's going to be reading it is going to be the table
. Which is impossible, because tables can't read. Even if they could, it would be far too dark to ... we forgot our original point. Oh! That's right. There were a number of large sea changes in this week's chart, which apparently means that somewhere in the world, a book of dialogue for something was upended.
For instance, the PS3 took top honors this week, which is a feat it hasn't managed since the launch of its sleeker iteration. This wasn't a random occurrence; the top selling game was the PS3-exclusive Pro Evolution Soccer
(or, as its known in Japan, Winning Eleven
. A soccer
game. Which beat out a Pokémon game
and an action title
starring a scantily clad, guns-a-blazing heroine. Oops! The script's upside-down.
If only Konami had created a soccer game exclusively for the PSP Go, the sales for which completely plummeted after its first
day of availability. We're not certain that this qualifies as script-flipping per sé
, as it only hit us as mildly surprising. We'd be willing to say that the script was rotated about 71 degrees to the left, and then the pages were slowly flipped through a few times -- just enough so that they get creased a little bit.
