GameSpot is reporting a shift in the video game target audience;
women and users over 25 years old (in the Japanese market, at least). With the help of Tamagotchi-esque
Nintendogs (42% of games sold bought by women) and No-o Kitaeru Otona-no DS Training – a book-to-game about teaching
the brain to work faster (68% of purchasers over 25) – Nintendo DS is doing everything it can to break gaming
tradition, and of course help its sales. The PSP meanwhile has found a new best-selling golf game, Minna No Golf,
which stands to break 400,000 games sold soon.
As for the number game, as it stands Nintendo DS is in the lead with 2.33 million, followed by the PSP with 1.5 million. But fret not, Sony fans, this is just the Japanese market, and we cannot forget the enormous lead the PlayStation 2 has over, well, pretty much everything under the rising sun.
