DS and DS lite combined for more than 200,000 units sold last week. And PS2 and PSP are way behind with second and third. But the big thing is that the X360 sold 3.2 thousand. Wow that is such an advancement. And they outsold the GC, their closest rival in Japan by a little less than 2 thousand lol. But another big thing is that the GBA original more than doubled the Xbox in sales. Wow. And just when we thought Xbox was catching up bam downgrade. Oh well poor Xbox.
