Only 3 360 titles in the top 30. Also no PS3 at all? Japan should be renamed Nintendoland.

PS 127 million people in Japan, so isn't 10-20,000 games sold per week quite low? How does that compare to other countries? Positions 4-10 range from 10 to 20,000 or so.

Where are all the great AAA PS3 titles.

its a bonus for the 360 to beat the PS3 at anything in Japan.

Japan's video game market is over maturity and getting into a decline a little early while the US and other regions are in a period of growth. Japan's game market isn't bigger than past anymore.

Just shifting priorities. The Japanese seem to be moving away from consoles and are embracing the handheld. It's like Nintendo has a license to print money with the DS

Super Mario is getting some much deserved love in Japan.
