Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 6/2-6/8

We're crying for Namco Bandai's Tears of 99 right now, as the game debuted in the twenty-third spot this week. We guess Japanese gamers just didn't feel like being bummed out, and therefore avoided buying this original title. Sad, indeed.

The rest of DS software didn't do so hot, either. Detective game Misa Yamamura Suspense premiered in fifth, and Beautiful Letter Training continues to sell incredibly well for a nongame about calligraphy, but otherwise sales were a disappointment. Front Mission 2089 and Endless Frontier: Super Robot Wars OG Saga are already showing a lack of legs, since both of the games dropped considerably from the previous week. Glory of Herakles and Let's Make a Pro Baseball Team! have even fallen out of the top thirty completely.

Hardware is the same old story:
  • PSP: 62,016 (9,970)
  • Wii: 44,639 (6,212)
  • Nintendo DS: 35,020 (3,335)
  • PlayStation 3: 10,856 (1,687)
  • PlayStation 2: 6,279 (924)
  • Xbox 360: 2,280 (321)
Check out all the software numbers and rankings for yourself, should you feel so inclined. They're listed after the break.

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 5/26-6/1

Two DS games debuted in the top ten this week (Endless Frontier: Super Robot Wars OG Saga and the cutesy spatial puzzler Empty Space Training), but otherwise, DS software had a relatively lackluster performance. Only twelve titles ended up in the top thirty, which is low for Nintendo's handheld. As for hardware, the DS is getting comfortable in third place behind the PSP and Wii:
  • PSP: 71,986 (7,537)
  • Wii: 50,851 (1,804)
  • Nintendo DS: 38,355 (951)
  • PlayStation 3: 9,169 (98)
  • PlayStation 2: 7,203 (14)
  • Xbox 360: 1,959 (12)
Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness is another game that premiered last week, taking twelfth in the charts. If it follows the path of games like Let's Make a Pro Baseball Team! and Glory of Herakles, though, it's likely to drop soon. As for English of the Dead, the game didn't debut in the top fifty, and according to Famitsu it only sold 1,500 copies in its first week.
