Media Create Japan Hardware Sales: July 16th-22nd
Following the previous week's powerful show, the Nintendo Wii continued to trek on strong by selling another 87k systems for Nintendo. With a bunch of new software, the Nintendo DS saw another boost in sales with over 154k moved. The PSP saw a decline in sales down to 32k, meanwhile the PlayStation 3 remains largely where it's been at for the past few weeks.
Next week, I'm anticipating a pretty significant boost for the
console, as Hot Shots Golf 5 has been released in Japan this week
- reportedly selling 150k on its first day. Likewise, the
PlayStation 3 bundle that features Hot Shots Golf 5 packed in is
supposed to be going on sale this week in Japan, as well and
that's another hot ticket item for Sony.
Unfortunately, following HSG5, the PlayStation 3 will not be seeing any noteworthy software again for quite some time.
