Preliminary Japanese Sales for the Week Ending September 2, 2007

When compiling weekly data for Japan, ioi uses a bevy of sources. By Sunday Night (East Coast USA time), both first day data and preliminary weekly data is available for analysis. Taking both into account, here is an early take on how some of the figures will look this week. These figures are not to be taken as gospel, just an early take on approximately where the market will be for the week. No big surprises this week, software remains at similar levels to last week. However, PS3 and Xbox 360 have software in the preliminary top twenty this week.

Really? That explains a lot, actually.

Nexgenwars and vgchartz...geez. Well, guess I'll scan my computer again.

Edit: Scan turned up nothing this time. I am getting viruses from somewhere, but its not vgchartz, it seems.

We have all been there! Blowing on a Nintendo video game cartridge when the game we were playing just would not launch or appeared to be glitching.

I mean it worked for me. Regardless if it was just a poor connection between the cartridge and the console or some random bug that was preventing the game from loading properly, the placebo effect of knowing your breath is what fixed the game is dead set in the minds of plenty of 80s gamers.

Blow on the game and then use something about hte thickness of a deck of cards in my case it a was plastic sport card holder of about 20 cards that would keep the mechnaism all the eway down. Ahh and the famous left to right shuffle hoping the contact would touch.

Stupid Zoomer tries to debunk a technique used successfully by millions of people over many years.

Look out for they/them’s next article ‘DEBUNKED! Why the Xbox 360 towel trick is all a myth’.

It did work, not only Nintendo but sega genesis and saturn as well

Clearing the dust from inside the cartridge by blowing on it did work.

Perhaps YOU are unfamiliar with how easily dust can disrupt electronics, but entire generations of gamers and computer users are.

Yup. The pins would get dirty and dusty, anyone that's cleaned a game with a q tip knows that. Blowing the cartridge out would had have to helped.

Relientk771d 4h ago

It worked for me and my cartridges. So I refuse to believe it's just a myth

shinoff21831d 1h ago

It definitely works. They can go on and on about how it didn't but I was there for 100s of games. It was pretty damn common.

Pretty sure people were supposed to blow on the cartridge not hawk tuah on it.
