Wow talk about a low sales week. Saying that i'd imagin it will stay like this now until end of summer, with only game releases making much of a difference (aka MGS4 will boost Ps3 sales alot).

Im amazed that MK Wii didn't boost the wii alot

ps3 = 8k? is that all? SCEJ needs to regionalise more PS3 games for Japan.. SCEJ don't seem to regard the wii as competition.. PS3 needs games in Japan. There aren't enough games and definitely not enough of the variety that Japanese like.

BTW I got mario kart and it is hardly different to the Gamecube version. Am I the only one who thinks this?

PSP still winning in hardware :O
Shouldn't last too long though, since it won't have another monster like
Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G...
