This has been the slowest week of the year so far in Japan, with total sales of the top 100 titles falling to below 600,000 for the first time. This is not necessarily anything to worry about, since it may just show a lull between major product launches. Nonetheless, even top selling title Shin Sangoku Musou 4 (aka Dynasty Warriors 5) sold only 61,920 units this week. However, the number two title, also by Koei, and the week’s highest new entry, San Goku Shi X (aka Romance of the Three Kingdoms X) managed only 30,541. Overall sales were down 16 percent on last week and totalled just 62 percent of the weekly average. Hardware sales were almost identical to last week, with PSP coming top with 46,307 sales for a 34.59 percent market share, followed by the PlayStation 2 at 30.88 percent, the Nintendo DS at 19.82 percent, the Game Boy Advance at 11.36 percent, the GameCube at 3.17 percent and the Xbox at 0.18 percent.
