With current events, we would be right to think that the Japanese were going to maybe buy fewer games or consoles, but this is apparently not the case.
Indeed, sales of 3DS regress from week to week, and Nintendo console sells for less than the old PSP. Japanese players do they expect a real blockbuster to get it? The new portable Nintendo it would cost too much? Is it worth the shot to buy it when you have a DS? So many questions can be raised in view of sales figures below what we could have imagined.
The PSP remains in the lead, helped by a growing software library that attracts crowds. The Wii comes out of breath, no new Game, with sales and announcing the end of his life, the number of PS3 sold is almost three times higher than the Wii. The Xbox 360 is still rubbing the good old PS2.

As for games, we find that hunting is a sport enjoyed insects, Earth Defense Force 2 Portable coming straight to the top of the ranking, followed by Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker on DS 2, the critically acclaimed Japanese (including Famitsu).
Like the previous week, they are portable consoles that have the wind in their sails, and the only game for home consoles present in this top 10 is none other than Dynasty Warriors 7 on PS3, which loses a seat.
