The Japan Preview: 3/2/08 Edition (Smash down to 2nd, Idol Master ~ 33k)

VGChartz writes: After weeks as the top selling game in Japan, it appears that Super Smash Brothers Brawl has been knocked from its perch by Gundam Musou Special for the PS2. Overall, the market had a decent week, with four titles selling between 50,000 and 100,000 units. This week's data also featured a fairly rare event – PS3 software in the preliminary data was outsold by Xbox 360 software in the preliminary data. In fact, PS3 software was the least represented when compared against Wii, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP, and DS this week.

Key Points:

-DS sold the most software in the preliminary data, with Wii and PS2 coming in closely behind.

-Idol Master will lift Xbox 360 closer to PS3 than it has been in weeks.

-DS and PSP should remain close to one another this week.

Predicted Hardware Totals:

Wii: 50,000 to 60,000 unit range
DSL: 45,000 to 60,000 units range
PSP: 40,000 to 55,000 units range
PS3: 10,000 to 15,000 unit range
PS2: 8,000 to 16,000 units range
360: 3,000 to 8,000 units range (IDOLM@STER, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, PSP, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii, Xbox 360)
