Japanese Sales, 10th-16th May, 2010 on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The latest sales for 10th-16th May, 2010 have now been collated, and for the third week in a row, Square Enix is victorious with Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 holding onto the top spot again, now surpassing the million mark and currently tracking ahead of any other entry into the Dragon Quest Monsters series. For those wondering how Mario Kart Wii has managed to find its way back into the Top 10 lately, it is due to a new TV advertising campaign from Nintendo, showing that even older releases can strongly benefit from a new push, which is also why Super Smash Bros. Brawl continues to linger further down the chart as well.

On the hardware side, all systems take a heavy hit, with Wii especially hit hard, falling below the PS3 once more this year, but the DS family manages to slightly keep its head above the PSP models.

Check out all the data below:

I'd not noticed until now that the DSi/DSi XL combined has now surpassed the PS3 with ease! Smilie

Oh, look ath the PSPgo chug along, how cute!

Alright, let's do some math:

Japan Population: 127,704,000

Number of DSs sold (total): 53,780,741

So in theory, 42% of Japan owns a DS of some kind. That's awesome! Smilie


The former top user was Keven! You'd probably give birth to yourself 1000 times over until you sprout wings to fly away into the fading sun, that or you'd just turn into a lesbian. Who knows @_@ - L, 12/06/09

While we would like that to be true, you know that most people have more than one DS!

Still though, good feat for Nintendo!
