Latest Japanese Hardware Sales

Media Create has once again released the latest Japanese hardware sales and this week, things seem a bit more shaky than last.

Lol, when are you people going to get it. The Japanese would much rather play lovely RPG's and quality games then a Microsoft tech demo. They don't care for FPS, that's why Halo flunked. MS should have bought Squaresoft when they could, that would have sold consoles.
