Nintendo employees will be cheering an excellent week for the GameCube, with this latest Japanese sales data. Mario Kart: Double Dash!! entered the charts at number one with approximately 208,000 unit sales, accounting for 56% of total sales for new releases in the chart. However, thanks to a lack of other major releases total sales were still below the weekly sales average at 86%, in what should have been one of the busiest weeks of the year. Nevertheless GameCube hardware sales rose to account for 28.38% of the market, compared to 39.03% for combined GBA sales, 30.60% for the PS2, and 0.93% for the Xbox (beating the PS one for the first time in many months at 0.69%). The GameCube is unlikely to maintain this high percentage in subsequent weeks though, as PS2 sales are down considerably in anticipation of the next week’s price cut.
