Yea but if you look at the sales of regular xbox back a few months it wasnt any better. The 360 numbers are starting to go up but the ps2 is still dominating even though its on its last legs.

"Over 2 Xboxes are sold every day in Japan..." :laugh:

I wonder if N3 will sell any 360's over there.

New numbers are up.

Cheers.

The original DS took a massive dive this week, while DSL is stronger than ever.

GameBoy sales increased with the release of Mother 3.

Ninety-Nine Nights failed to do much for the 360, it only increased by 2,000 units.

Ah, so it was released that week. The game didn't get any great reviews other than in Famitsu 360 (I think that's what it's called) so I didn't expect it to do much. I did expect it to make more of an impact than Rumble Roses, though :wacko:

I would think that PS2 would rule the western stats if there were any. :)

Im not sure about USA, but both xbox consoles have dominated the market in Australia. Seems wierd how they made Australians wait so long.

I dont have any console im a poor man. :(

That's not really true. Microsoft did very well with Xbox over here (probably one of their strongest markets per capita), but Sony are still in the lead by a fair bit, in hardware and software sales. Just look at last weeks sales for Australia:

Nintendo are doing the worst in Australia with the GameCube coming in last position. DS is doing pretty well though.

Geez. I wonder how long DS/DSL can keep this pace. They're selling more and more every week!

After last week's numbers I figured the original DS was being phased out but I guess I was wrong?

I can't even imagine how much boost DSL will get in sales when the new Super Mario game comes out later this month. Even the original DS is selling better than PSP!

It must be kind of cool to live in Japan being a DS fan though. Since that thing is selling like wildfire, I'm sure a lot of gamers have one.

Being in the states, seems not too many people I know have a DS =\.

Ok genius... which dating sims are selling like hotcakes and pushing systems. Because as far as I last checked (according to the Media Create sales records), it was the aforementioned games (Animal Crossing, Brain Training, Mario Kart to an extent) that were really pushing systems.

^ There are still very few titles for the 360 right now that most Japanese gamers would be interested in.

This is freakin ridiculous! Hehe Combined DS+DSL sales are gonna round out at what..3/4 of a million units per month?! GODDAMN! PS2 is also amazingly strong, considering most people that wanted one already bought them..The fact that so many PS2 are being sold right now is good news for the upcoming PS3, guys.
