Japanese sales are almost back to an even footing this week at 91.05% of the weekly average, with both the first and second place new entries both selling over 100,000 units each. Apart from the entry of SCEE’s The Getaway at number nine in the charts – which follows fellow Western (specifically British developed) titles GTA3 and Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness into a rare visit to the Japanese top ten – the most interesting news this week is in the hardware sales. Following a price drop from ¥16,800 ($154) to ¥14,800 ($135) the Xbox has seen its weekly market share rise from less than 1% to 6.98%. Helped also by the creation of a ¥19,800 ($181) bundle including the console, an extra controller, Halo, Project Gotham Racing 2, a DVD kit and two months free subscription to Xbox Live this is the best week of sales the Xbox has ever achieved. The console did not take its extra market share from any one particular rival though, with the rest of the market remaining relatively unchanged with the PlayStation 2 at the top with 49.67%, combined GBA sales at 24.49%, GameCube at 18.21%, PS one at 0.36% and Bandai’s SwanCrystal at 0.29%.
