Another brisk week of sales in Japan has seen only three titles remain in the top ten, amidst a flurry of new releases. In many ways the chart this week are very stereotypical of the Japanese market, with two pachinko titles, a train simulator, two Japanese-only role-playing games and a giant robot title at number one. Indeed, the only oddity this week is the continued presence of Western title Vice City. Banpresto will be particularly pleased with the continued success of the Super Robot Taisen franchise, which has now sold over ten million copies over thirty-three different titles. The latest entry having sold 384,862 units in its first week. In hardware sales the large number of new PlayStation 2 releases put Sony’s console ahead with a 50.47% market share, followed by the Game Boy Advance at 41.09%, the GameCube at 6.92% and the Xbox above 1% for the first time in many months at 1.04%.
