Blue Dragon busts into Japanese sales charts

The first thing you should do when this sort of thing happens is somehow confirm that you're still in the same dimension you were in moments before. Examine newspapers, have a look in the mirror and make doubly sure that nobody is sporting an angry orangutan for a head. With that out of the way, you...

Japanese hardware sales, 4 September - 10 September: completely wiidiculous edition

Shocking reports from Japan indicate that Nintendo's entry into the next-gen console wars (with Xbox 360 and Japan itself being the only combatants thus far) has shown absolutely no progress in the closely monitored sales ranking. - DS Lite: 113,831 115,108 (50.28%) - PSP: 29,141 1,642 (5.97%) - ...

The PSP hasn't had too many first place victories. In fact, it's only had one so far: SD Gundam (which I reported to you g...

Japanese hardware sales, 3 July - 9 July: paging Rod Serling

There are times when reading the Japanese sales charts can be a decidedly odd and disturbing experience, as if your mind suddenly becomes aware that all is not right in the universe. Like a homicidal clown lurking in a dark corner, this week's situation is certainly amusing, but it's not something y...

Japanese hardware sales, 26 June - 2 July: You've got red on you

Oh, the horror. Be sure to keep angry fanboys and dubiously trained pet bulls away from the monitor this week, as it displays an awful lot of red. Even the mighty DS Lite experiences the strange sensation of slipping, possibly caused by the tight grip of an overweight sibling. The ranking, according...

Japanese hardware sales, 12 June - 18 June: Phat's back

The ranking, according to number of units sold: - DS Lite: 141,487 9,460 (7.17%) - PSP: 24,653 2,997 (13...

Japanese hardware sales, 5 June - 11 June: outnumbered

The sheer volume of words being displayed on the front page of this blog is, quite frankly, entirely ridiculous. It's time for a change. It's time we inundate you with the accountant's best friend and the alphabet's greatest foe. It's time we unleash the Japanese hardware sales charts for the week r...
