    @Steph,
    You may add that the overall decrease is due to increase in taxes (sort of VAT) in Japan.

    Dem titles showing mighty impressive legs and mighty impressive hardware drops. Natural Doctrine is a bomba, the other versions haven’t charted.

    Nothing new otherwise which doesn’t present a question mark, Just Dance 2014 for Wii U?
