Nintendo DSi LL Takes Japan by Storm

Nintendo DSi LL Takes Japan by Storm on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The latest Media Create Top 50 has now been released, showing that Nintendo has dominated the top half of the software chart once more, with numerous DS games holding strong thanks to renewed interest in the DS market due to the release of the DSi LL. The new, larger system itself has also stormed to the top of the hardware listings, whilst not really putting any sort of dent in the original DSi model's sales figure. For those interested, whilst Taiko no Tatsujin for Wii is the second highest selling game on the platform, its sequel has only sold ~11.6% of its initial 250,000 shipment (according to Media Create).

Check out the data below, complete with last week's positions for the software in brackets:

Looks like the Wii is holding on by the skin of it's teeth, atleast according to this, hopefully Nintendo can think about what other gamers want instead of the traditional, or whatever they'r labeled as, players.
