Japanese hardware sales – The “going nowhere fast” edition

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 19 June 2009 07:29 GMT


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
