i wonder if the japanese are getting bored of their own 'eastern' influenced i.p's?

maybe NOT

I'm surprised the 360 is still selling consistently.

Yup, the 360 almost selling 50% of the PS3 sales is incredible although the numbers are both low in Japan.

What is a sad thing, no PS3 game comes in the top selling games. The hardware doesn't sell, the software doesn't sell

Which ever way you look at the Japan hardware sales.It's still as follows:1.Wii 2.PS3 3.X360(last by a long margin).

All the three Nex Gen console sales have slowed down.Must be the time of year(after xmas).

eques judicii3764d ago

They are last by a large margin when compared to the Wii... but then again... so is the ps3... Both of these margins keep getting bigger. Nintendo owns Japan at this point. If I was into buying and selling stocks I'd be very happy if I owned nintendo stock... and quite upset if I bought microsoft or sony stock.

Nintendo has 8 out of the 10 spots! Good to see DQ Mosters broke a million ^^ and Wii Sports is almost at a mill as well! A lot of new entries for that week so who knows some of those could stay on that list for awhile
