Japanese Videogame Sales - 12/10-12/16

Christmas is fast approaching, and so naturally game sales spike up tremendously. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was the only notable new debut on the chart, but it just missed placing on the second spot - technically. Prologue sold a fantastic 116k copies in stores, with another estimated 30k-40k sold on the PlayStation Network, which puts it well ahead of Wii Fit, which sold 124k games. Mario Party DS came back to take over the number one spot by moving 180k games. Super Mario Galaxy, unfortunately, isn't performing as well it should be - selling 74k games. It's saddening to see "games" like Mario Party and Wii Fit move truck loads, while the most proper Mario game since Super Mario 64 is struggling.

Here's the breakdown below:

1. NDS - Mario Party DS (Nintendo) - 180,042 / 826,000
2. Wii - Wii Fit (Nintendo) - 124,238 / 535,000
3. PS3 - Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (Sony) - 115,748 / Debut
4. NDS - Prof. Layton and Pandora's Box (Level 5) - 74,378 / 444,000
5. Wii - Super Mario Galaxy (Nintendo) - 74,113 / 550,000
6. NDS - Dragon Quest IV (Square-Enix) - 73,061 / 868,000
7. Wii - Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games (Nintendo) - 64,228 / 212,000
8. Wii - Wii Sports (Nintendo) - 55,102 / 2,341,000
9. Wii - Wii Play (Nintendo) - 54,696 / 1,921,000
10. Wii - Chocobo's 'Dungeon: 'The Labyrinth'... (Square-Enix) - 40,580 / Debut
