Japanese Charts, Feb 4 - Feb 10: 3DS takes control of top five



This week's Japanese charts are in and guess what? Yes the 3DS is dominating again, in fact perhaps even more so than before.

All top five games belong to the 3DS, with only one title each from Wii, PS Vita and PS3 stopping it from dominating the top ten entirely.

As far as hardware sales go, practically every other system is lagging far behind, although when you look at the software charts you can see why.

Here's this weeks charts.

Not a shock to see the 3DS dominate, it always does. Funny how it does so well in Japan, yet average everywhere else.

I'm surprised that DMC isn't placed higher though I must admit, I felt that'd hold down a top 3 spot for a long time in Japan.

I'm surprised the DmC didn't hold for longer here too, it's an amazing game.

The Japanese do love their DS. The DS has now sold over 30million units in Japan, that's like 1/4 of the population

Wii U seems to be going steady. Kinda. If slightly down week on Week. Vita can't decide what it's doing XD It's like a Yo-Yo. Up one week. down the next. 3DS sure is kicking ass and taking names however. PS3 has One Piece out soon so that may change things (even if it looks as lazy as the first one.)

It's no surprise seeing a 3DS title at the top, it is by far one of the most successful handheld console released

The japanese charts are always much better than the western charts, they're filled with a more diverse list of games, whereas ours are all shooters and sports ¬¬

PS3 has been succesful in Japan. It's only selling 17,000 titles p/week now because it's years and years old, people already have it. 3DS being at the top is no suprise, just suprising to see it sell 100's of thousands p/week still.

Hard to imagine but Japan has a population of an estimated 127million. The UK has 'only' 62million estimated. I still think the 3DS does well because of the high-density living that many people are forced to live in, within their culture. Space is at a premium.
