This week's Japanese charts see Nippon Ichi's PlayStation 2 SRPG Phantom Kingdom debuting atop the countdown, with a fairly impressive 72,894 units sold, closely followed by Koei's action-strategy PS2 title Dynasty Warriors 5, which is still hanging in there after a few weeks, showing 37,994 sales even now. The top 100 titles in this week's Japanese chart totaled 666,528 units in sales. This is 118.44% of last week's total and 75.78% of the weekly average. However, sales in the first to the third week of March are the three lowest so far in 2005, showing the relevant slowness of the Japanese games market right now. Hardware sales continued along broadly similar lines, with PSP coming top with 43,644 sales for a 35.91% percent market share, followed by the PlayStation 2 at 33.13% percent, the Nintendo DS at 18.47 percent, the Game Boy Advance at 9.45 percent, the GameCube at 2.76 percent and the Xbox at 0.28 percent.
