Latest Japanese Sales Numbers
Media Create has released the latest sales data in Japan for the week ending July 16th, so we can all ogle how hot the DS is. The summer of 2006 might have to be called "The summer the Nintendo DS ruled." Things are a little different this week, however, as the PS2 takes the top spot with the 13th iteration of the Powerful Pro Baseball series. The PSP hasn't had a strong summer, but things have been looking up as of late with a few PSP titles making an appearance here and there. This week's PSP title is the highly-anticipated Loco Roco, perhaps due to the downloadable demo Sony released a few months ago.
See Sony, people like downloading demos.
