Media Create, that group of swell folks in Japan, has released its list of top selling console hardware and software for the week spanning November 29 and December 5, 2004. So what do the Japanese like? Apparently, Dragon Quest VIII, which is selling there what Halo 2 and GTA: San Andreas are doing here.

Also obvious is the debut of the Nintendo DS, which went on sale in Japan on December 2nd. Not bad for only 3 days of tracking.
