Japanese hardware sales – the “Dragon Quest IX pre-ejaculate” edition

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 10 July 2009 08:41 GMT


Here it comes. Over 2 million people have now pre-ordered Dragon Quest IX, which goes on sales for DS in Japan this week, meaning we’re almost certainly about to see a huge DSi-DS Lite hardware sales spike. Both machines started to pick up last week.

Which is great. Because if we’d had to write up another week of upabitdownabit Japanese hardware figures we may have started self-harming.

Last week’s chart here. Data below for the week ending July 5.

  • DSi – 46,855
  • PSP – 32,849
  • Wii – 24,971
  • PS3 – 11,196
  • DS Lite – 7,507
  • Xbox 360 – 5,876
  • PS2 – 3,734
