Media Create Japan Hardware Sales: May 7th-13th

Software sales had a poor showing last week, and hardware got hit too. Overall sales fell considerably after the incredible spike two weeks ago. Still, the Nintendo DS sold 164k handhelds, and the Wii waggled 52.5k consoles. The PSP didn't really seem shaken, as its sales remained fairly close to what they were two weeks ago with 34.5k sold, largely thanks to the re-release of Final Fantasy Tactics. It is the PlayStation 3 that is faring the worst, with sales below the 10k mark.

The PS3 pulled in a mere 9k systems, truly pathetic. We're holding out hope for the arrival of Folklore (formerly known as Monster Kingdom) when it debuts in early June. Ninja Gaiden Sigma will follow the week after, and we're hoping that both games manage to make an impact on the sales of the console like Gundam Musou did a few months back. Following those two titles will be My Summer Vacation 3, Hot Shots Golf 5, and a new Wangan Midnight racer from Genki. There'll be some American 3rd party games here and there (Call of Duty 3, Tom Clancy: R6 Vegas, Marvel Ultimate Alliance), but don't expect them to make any kind of presence.

Nintendo DS - 163,824
Nintendo Wii - 52,544
