Yeah :) i wanted to see this thread, I love discusing numbers xD
- The KHDDD sales % drop was massive! I was expecting better legs for the 2nd week :/, is really not selling on par with the others KH hanheld games.
Kingdom Hearts series (second week sales)
[PS2] Kingdom Hearts (Square) - 103,300 / 514,792 (-75%)*
[GBA] Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories - 35,768 / 239,039 (-82%)
[PS2] Kingdom Hearts II (Square Enix) - 156,837 / 884,428 (-78%)
[NDS] Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days (Square Enix) - 106,104 / 401,000 (-64%)

[NDS] Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (Square Enix) - 31,247 / 126,753 (-67%)
- I am still amazed seeing PSP games at #1 :O, It really shows how Sony messed up by not having real backward compatibility for the PSV, they essentially have 2 completly different platforms competing with each other, minewhile the DS made a nice little transition to the 3DS. The worse part is that Sony cant kill the PSP now, Japan still loves that machine!
PSP software # sales: 307090
3DS software # sales: 147887
I dont know how they can handle this situation, a pricedrop seems unlikely because they cant afford that, and they dont have any games on the near future that will appeal to this specific market (and the next big conference for Japan, the TGS, is stil moooooonths away)
-Kid Icarus is holding up nicely, I hope that we can see it reaching 500,000.
-Lots of 3DS software, expecting to see Fire Emblem there at #1 next week :D
Oh! And finally this chart is really informative, it shows the rollercoaster that has been watching how these little hanhelds perform:
