Last week's sales in Japan sure seem to be full of surprises.
Gundam Musou remained on the top 10, and Monster Hunter Portable
2nd continues to sell a plethora. Now there are more surprises in
the form of hardware sales. We aren't certain what the reasons
are, but the Nintendo Wii's sales have fallen 13k down to 44k.
Gamers who reside in Japan claim a shortage of consoles, stating
that Wiis are nowhere to be found in the country.
Nintendo has recently gone on record to admit that demand is simply much higher than supply. What's more is that the PS3 is enjoying
another week of reasonable sales, taking in 32k consoles sold.
The PSP had another terrific week with 56k units moved, and the
handheld has surpassed 5-million in sales. Lastly, the Nintendo
DS continues to parade like a champ taking in almost the same
amount as it did the week before with 109k sold.
