Looks like 4 PS2 titles, 1 PSP title, nothing for the 360, 3 for the Wii, and 22 for the NDS. I figured Gears of War would have reappeared on the top 30 once stores had some stock again but I have to wonder if its just not selling much anymore. Looking forward to seeing the hardware sales but I am guessing its going to be another big week for Nintendo.



DSL 146,073 -> 14,908,533 (DSL 8,325,735 + DS 6,582,798) Wii 65,740 -> 1,444,571 PSP 31,216 -> 4,803,073 PS3 18,727 -> 612,861 PS2 17,540 360 6,130 -> 312,509 GBM 1,050 GBASP 724 GC 306 DS 119 GBA 28



DSL : 194,526→146,073→75.1% Wii : *83,754→*65,750→78.5% PSP : *35,700→*31,216→87.4% PS2 : *20,995→*17,540→83.5% PS3 : *19,996→*18,727→93.7% 360 : **7365→**6130→83.2% % wise, somewhat of a drop for Nintendo. Is Nintendo's factories slowing down or something?



crappy old school NES games are more entertaining than next-gen games.

If you notice they all dropped.

No chance of that. That really seems to be the difference between DS and other titles these days - DS titles have serious legs, where most other titles are lucky to spend 2 weeks in the charts.

Nocturnal is helping companies get cheaper game ratings in Australia:

I hope Nintendo is finally addressing the severe rarity of the Wii in North America and finally diverting manufacturing capabilities from the Japanese market to here after the loving Nippon got back in December.



Well the 'drop' is more down to the fact that sales have been so high the last few weeks. All consoles are down a bit - as is normal this time of the year. The fact that Wii is still doing 70k a week even with little new software is promising. It seems that Wii Sports and Wii Play are selling the system almost on their own much like Brain Training and Nintendogs were for DS - although it took 6 months from launch for those to arrive. Nintendo need to make sure they keep a steady supply of big new Wii games - Fire Emblem out so soon is great news, and the likes of Cooking Mama I'm sure will do fairly well. They do need some biggies around June / July though - it would be a shame if sales just kept dipping away due to lack of new titles...



Weak sales for all the plattforms ,excepting the DS and maybe the PSP (not so strong sales but still ahead of the 25K average weekly of last year ) .....Wii is doing very well but losing each week sales ....PS3 is doing quite bad and losing sales each week ...X360 horrendous as nearly ever there and losing sales each week . The 2 ,3 and 4th weeks of January are usually a one of the lower points for the year ....I expect the sales for next weeks to improve significantly .If games as Mist of Chaos ,Virtua Fighter 5 ,Virtua Tennis 3 and Gundam Mussou cant lift the PS3 sales above 70K again then we should start worryying about the machine and SOny making some decisiones (price cut principally )



We'll have to wait for more concrete numbers but evidently VF5 isn't selling to well on PS3 in Japan. I find tha suprising to be honest. Of course the reports from Japan could be erroneous. We will just have to wait for next weeks Media Crate sales numbers.
