Simple 2000: The Japanese Software Chart

Simple 2000: The Japanese Software Chart

mario_party_ds_jp.jpgMario tops the charts again this week, with Mario Party DS selling close to a quarter million copies in its debut week in Japan. It’s followed by the game that is sure to push tens of thousands of PlayStation 3s, Shin Sangoku Musou 5, to be known as Dynasty Warriors 6 in North America. Its Xbox 360 counterpart cracked the top ten, as did Insomniac Games’ Ratchet & Clank Future, all of which should make for an interesting week in hardware sales.

Oddly enough, only one PlayStation 2 title appears this week and it’s NBA Live 08. What a world…
