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%) - ...

Japanese hardware sales, 21 August - 27 August: dear diary edition

1 September, 2006 Dear Diary, Today Joystiq posted the Japanese hardware sales charts and, oh em gee, it was so crazy. My Nintendo was at the very top and the only other thing that had a green arrow was that big Xbox. Totally weird. I can't wait to show my friend Allan the numbers. He has one, but h...

Japanese hardware sales, 17 July - 23 July: bad comparison week

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, 19 June - 25 June: the bigger they are

... the harder they fall. The Japanese population's brief rekindling of their romance with the DS Phat, showing a massive 1559% increase in sales last week, seems to have died out for now. Our obese friend takes the sharpest fall this week, with slimmer, trimmer machines like the Game Boy Micro and ...

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

Quite possibly the only sane thing we've received from Japan this week, the Japanese hardware sales charts show it like it is -- no silly comparisons, half-truths or fuzzy mathematics in sight. The ranking, according to number of units sold: - DS Lite: 141,487 9,460 (7.17%) - PSP: 24,653 2,997 (13...
