    Crikey. PSP am go. Who’d have foreseen this even 12 months ago?

    Doesn’t seem to be dropping off at all, tbh. It’s been consistently high since the redesigned hardware came out, which is quite a while now. Maybe there’s hope for the PS3 in Japan yet! ;-)

    Monster Hunter sales are starting to drop back a bit now. It’s only a matter of time.
