Japanese Hardware and Software Sales for the Week of March 20-26
Last week's Japanese sales are finally here again. None to surprising really but they are up. Usually March is a very slow month for sales but it seems that the DS has been proving that wrong. First off here is hardware sales: DS Lite - 119,986 Nintendo DS - 39,307 PS2 - 34,169 PSP - 31,077 Game Boy Advance SP - 5,627 Game Boy Micro - 4,883 GameCube - 1,458 X360 - 1,415 Xbox - 117 Game Boy Advance - 98 Well as usual the DS and DS Lite pretty much destroyed the competition. But the GC vs. X360 race is still quite strong. The GC only outsold the X360 by 43 consoles. Wow that is close. And also the Xbox has outsold the original GBA. Wow weird week there. And they did it by 19 consoles. Yay Xbox. Now for software sales: 1. 237,678 - Final Fantasy XII (PS2) 2. 193,337 - Pokemon Ranger: The Road to Diamond and Pearl (DS) 3. 109,100 - Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War (PS2) 4. 82,797 - Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS) 5. 76,911 - Brain Training 2 (DS) 6. 54,360 - Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires (PS2) 7. 46,411 - English Training (DS) 8. 46,223 - Brain Training (DS) 9. 45,636 - Harukanaru Toki no Naka De 3: Labyrinth of Destiny (PS2) 10. 21,691 - Mario Kart DS (DS) Well as usual nothing buy PS2 and DS titles. And as we would think Final Fantasy XII is still #1. But the new DS Pokemon game really went up there in its first week. And then there are the rest of our usual DS games. And then we have a few PS2 games. Such as Ace Combat, Dynasty Warriors 5, and Labryinth of Destiny. Other than that pretty much the same. But still lot of sales in Japan right now when usually there aren't. Wait to go Japan. And we can thank the DS and PS2 for those numbers. Yay. Well tune in next week for more sales and we should also get in American Monthly Sales for March.
