Simple 2000: The Japanese Software Chart

dbz_meteor.jpgHalo 3's reign in Japan is over. Last time we got numbers from Media Create, Bungie and Microsoft topped the charts, pushing nearly 60,000 copies of the 360 exclusive during it's debut week. This week? Halo 3 doesn't appear in the top thirty. How quickly they turn on you. Perhaps sensing a great disturbance in the buying trends of the Japanese, the nation's gamers respond. Dragon Ball, Gundam, Pokémon, Final Fantasy and Tamagotchi rule the top ten, with Mistwalker's ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat making a respectable, if unspectacular, debut.
