    SHEESH. Over 350,000 copies of Animal Crossing and 132,000 DS's sold. Nintendogs broke records, and Animal Crossing just broke Nintendogs.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about making weekly sales a common post of mine. I thought Nintendogs sales were good...

    Please do. I love seeing the stats, but I don't know where to look.

    It's also fun to see how poorly the Xbox sells there (FYI: I have an Xbox and love it dearly).

    Yeah, Japan gives no love to the Xbox. The original GBA has continued to outsell it.

    gamesarefun.com posts them every week. I usually watch for them there.

    And hey, at least the XBox was over 100 this time. ;)

    no surprises here. NDS trashing everything else in terms of sale, Animal Crossing being a god of a cash cow.

    funny to see how the top 3 selling games are all on different Nintendo machines.

    You'll also note that 3 and 6 are the same game, just two different versions of it (like the old Pokemon red/blue).

    Man, I must've missed the Animal Crossing boat. I just don't see the appeal of the game. Maybe I'll have to pick one up just to see what all the fuss is about.:D

    The X-box is last because japanese gamers don't really like FPS ! The quality of games for the X-box is really bad here....Nintendo does well because of the kids eg: cartoon tie ins...

    But famitsu recently published the result of a survey and found that alot of gamers here are getting sick of sequels coming out ! eg: gundam...

    The quality of xbox games isn't good anywhere. They seem slapped together like games for Windows often do--more junk than quality.

    Wouldn't you say that the spirit of the games doesn't match the majority of Asians attitudes? Maybe the gangsters all have xbox systems, though, and they're playing Halo or other FPSes.

    Aye thats true. The only good game I could play over and over on the Xbox is a Sega game (Panzer Dragoon Orta). I've never been able to put my finger exactly on what I didn't like about the Xbox. slapped together games is it.
