Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Itadaki Street come out on top by a large margin.
Sigma slipped, but not as much as Trusty which is surprising.
But I still feel both games will drop even more next week.
Its strange seeing 360 actually competing with PS3 in japan.
bloody hell look at the NDS games lol
DS have a lot of learning game... if i live there i might get those game too: game that help you out with every days living.
no wonder why japans technology keeps involving!!
Folksoul was supply constrained at 7,000 units, so it definately would have sold much better since VF5 sold around 45,000 units and was #1.
I guess Trusty is not in the same level as Blue Dragon...
Blue Dragon has the FF guy and it's DBZ art style all things Japan loves. Trusty Bell is Namco and a RPG kind of nice but not like the other.
303k for the first week of Zelda DS^^ I'm looking forward to that. It's pretty cool Atlus got up on the top 5 as well. They just came out with Odin Sphere that did well (even got game of the month in a few mags) and here's another title by them doing great. Still crazy to see how much of a difference between the consoles it's so black and white over there. N-25 S-4 M-1 and that's the norm.
best selling Zelda in Japan in quite some time
FolksSoul for PS3 is already out? I heard about this game like 2 months ago for the first time and it's out already.

Now besides all the other games from Nintendo,it seems like the have a new slogan. "Buy our product because we can make you smart." Man they are so sly, they infiltrate the school system and every nooks and cranny with their products. don't you think parents will always look at Nintendo as a learning tool besides just video games. They will always do good over there.
Japanese gamers just have different taste, they don't play much western/European titles as well as consoles.
All Nintendo has to do is market the DS like a PDA. It's really not just a game system, its used for applications in Japan.
DS even has full maps for sale in Japan. It's used for everything
i see saint row as the number one selling game over there, ahhaahh
Yeah I know, pretty weird eh?
sorry meant for the 360 being the best seller over there compared to better 360 games
stupid folksoul supply constrainted.. talking about killing your launch hype.
A Zelda game will always attract the masses,even if its "Cel-da".But Cant wait for the State side Release.
