hokusai_wave.jpgIt's already been an intense day for followers of video game hardware and software sales, but we've got one last set of figures to drop on you. This week's Japanese hardware sales charts, courtesy of Media Create, help to illustrate the difference in sales trends. As is the new norm, Nintendo reigns supreme in Japan, but the stark contrast between Xbox 360 sales in the US and Japan is harshly illustrated when one compares Media Create sales to NPD.
