Just took this from Nintendo Everything, who took the hardware sales from Media Create and the software sales (ranking, not actual number) from Famitsu.. Note: This is only for Japan.

3DS – 46,637
PSP – 26,551
PS3 – 23,322
Wii – 14,237
DSi LL – 4,693
DSi – 4,384
Xbox 360 – 1,734
PS2 – 1,405
DS Lite – 131
PSP go – 14


3DS had a good week over there it seems. Star Fox was only number 6 and it released at the end of the week on 7/14, so I'm not sure why 3DS sales more than doubled. (Last week they were at 22,943, so it was an increase of 103%)


lol at psp go sales only 14. so much for the 3ds will fail doom and gloom stuff

1. They just released the red 3DS in Japan
2. Star fox is one of the less popular series over there.

I find it interesting that LA Noire is on the charts. Don't Rockstar games usually do godawful in Japan?

Yeah. It's good to see L.A. Noire is doing alright tbh.


Is no surprise, the game is not like a GTA or RDR, that kind of games are not that popular in Japan....

And about the games, Mario is not that big in Japan (3D ones) Zelda is not that big in Japan, Metroid is not that big in Japan, etc.

Those 3DS sales are huge, selling almost twice the #1 console for the last 2 years in Japan, the PSP, that΄s something....

And like I always write, is all about the games, good games out, the console sells, is a no brainer...

DQ is big in Japan though. That's sure to sell a great deal of 3DSs.

Ahh, forgot about that. I was having a hard time Star Fox 64 3D alone boosted 3DS sales by that much in Japan. Yeah the new color would do it.

Assuming DQ stays on Nintendo systems. DQ always hops around to whatever system is selling best. We already the sequel to Rocket Slime (awesome!) coming, though. That alone is better DQ treatment than the PSP got, so I'm staying hopeful. I hope they develop DQ games for both the 3DS and Vita this gen,

The regular DS and all its incarnations seem to be dying in Japan.
