Japanese Hardware and Software Sales for April 10-16

More sales from Japan. Yea. Well about same old same old but sure. But this time for hardware I got the sales that each conosle or handheld has sold as a whole in 2006 in Japan. Yeah. Check it out: DS Lite: 140,969 (827,737) DS Phat: 37,204 (767,773) PS2: 27,549 (504,215) PSP: 26,340 (609,399) GBASP: 6,372 (100,814) GBM: 3676 (62,678) 360: 1,926 (37,287) GCN: 1,080 (43,649) GBA: 46 (2,397) XBX: 30 (1,355) So as usual the DS's own the charts. But as we can see the DS's combine for a total of about 1.5 million sold in Japan through the slowest months of games sales. That's pretty good. And also GC is outselling the X360 overall while this week the X360 won a battle. And then original GBA and Xbox are still close but GBA out beat it by 16 consoles. But those are some sad numbers for those consoles. Now onto software sales with also having the number of units the game has sold overral in Japan:

1 NDS Brain Training 2 - 71,000 (1,887,000) 2 NDS Brain Training - 52,000 (1,930,000) 3 NDS Animal Crossing - 49,000 (2,462,000) 4 NDS Densetsu no Stafi 4 - 48,000 (48,000) 5 PS2 Guilty Gear XX Slash - 44,000 (44,000) 6 NDS English Trainig - 43,000 (847,000) 7 NDS Pokemon Ranger - 38,000 (359,000) 8 PS2 Final Fantasy XII - 25,000 (2,151,000) 9 PS2 Pro Yakyuu Netsu Star 2006 21,000 (73,000) 10 PS2 Pro Yakyuu Spirits 3 21,000 (89,000)

Wow those Brain Age games have staying power. They take the number 1 and 2 slots again. And so does Animal Crossing taking the #3 spot. And again so does English Training. Wow those Japanese just like to train themselves. And then PS2 games take up the rest of the slots and Final Fantasy 12 is still in there. Now look at the overral sales of the games. Both Brain Training games are closing in on 2 million while English Training is closing in on 1 million. Animal Crossing is approaching 2.5 million. And wow Final Fantasy is already at 2.1 million. Well those Japanese gamers sure do like their Final Fantasy. So an interesting week of sales. Join next time to see next week's sales. Zucas
