    Eek, the brand new Xbox 360 does worse than the 5 year old PS2? I thought M$ said they figured out what went wrong with the Xbox and were going to rule Japan this time around? In fact, unless I'm misremembering, didn't the Xbox do better than this? That seems kinda wrong....

    The Xbox 1 did much better initially in Japan than the Xbox 360 is doing. How crappy the Xbox 1 did in Japan is probably hurting the sales of the Xbox 360, that and the lack of Dead or Alive.

    Until I saw that chart, I never realized the PSP has outsold the PS2 in Japan, kind of weird.

    Also, I'm dying to get a DS to play Mario Kart, but I think I'll wait it out for the revision that is bound to hit next year (the DS is ugly! :))

    BOY it really is UGLY.

    It's the one reason I held back getting one until Mario Kart came out. It really is ugly and plasticy and yet since getting it, I've played it far more than I did my PSP which was bought on Jap launch. Animal Crossing is amazing, Online gaming is great on a handheld :D Sonic Rush is the best Sonic game since the first 2 on the megadrive. Advance Wars DS is solid, Meteo's is addictive.

    Only game left unimpressed with so far is Kirby:Canvas. Novelty wore off on me.

    The XBox today sells on average about 150 a week, but on launch sold around 140,000. Much more than this.

    I bought the Nintendo DS at launch. I hated the game drought until Kirby Canvas Curse came out. Now there are too many good DS games I still need to buy. Don't forget the GBA games too. :eek:

    This year. The PS2 has sold a few more than just 1.7 million units during its lifetime in Japan. :)
