The Japanese seem to do the darndest things. From dressing up cos-play style to eating raw fish (ok we like sushi too but that is besides the point), they make hits out of seemingly random games to us Europeans and Americans.

The trend continues with the latest Japanese craze: Everybody's Golf 5 (or Hot Shots Golf 5 to everyone else), receiving a whopping 300,000 preorders. The game doesn't even come out until over a month in Japan, but essentially three out of every ten PS3 owners has already purchased the title.

Could this title be the killer app Japan has been waiting for? Will it actually sell systems? I guess we'll see when this game releases on July 27th in Japan.
