Doing these every week is just depressing. Flat lines of dreariness, moving imperceptibly up and down. Sad Japanese people trudging into flaking games shops, grumpily buying a PS2 for little Yoshi to play ten year-old Gundam games on a black and white TV in the basement.

Go nuts, Japan. Have some kind of PS3 fit, or something. Data below for the week ending June 14. Last week’s charts here.

  • DSi – 36,872
  • PSP – 26,904
  • Wii – 18,442
  • PS3 – 10,009
  • Xbox 360 – 8,015
  • DS Lite – 5,408
  • PS2 – 3,498

    Two PS3 exclusive RPGs are out over there in the next few weeks, so it might be due another bump.

    I can’t quite understand how the 360 is still rising to meet the PS3 at 10k-ish when there are precisely ‘bugger all’ 360 titles in the game chart.

    @Blerk: You’re not thinking broadly enough. Think “hostess games”, but where you use your own hands to molest the women.

    So this, but with hand recognition: http://neogaf.net/forum/showpost.php?p=14866488&postcount=1 :D
