Simple 2000: The Japanese Software Chart

jleague_2007.jpgIn addition to loving the hell out of baseball, Japanese video game buyers also adore soccer to bits. Konami's sporty back up cash cow, the Winning Eleven series, took the number one sales spot, beating out Wii party retread Mario Party 8. A rare two-week appearance in the top ten for a PLAYSTATION 3 game rounds out the top three with Minna no Golf 5, Hot Shots Golf over here, pushing another 64,000 copies.

Here are the Media Create sales figures for the week of July 30th through August 5th.

A rather uneventful showing for Endless Ocean (aka Forever Blue) for the Wii. It's got a long way to go before it reaches my estimate of 1 trillion copies sold in Japan.
