The only new video game release that came close to threatening Nintendo's software domination this week was Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. The Nintendo DS role-playing managed a third place debut, beating out less impressive placements from RPG peers Blue Dragon: Ikai no Kyoujuu and the White Knight Chronicles EX Edition re-release.

Not much activity elsewhere in the charts, as Wii, DS, and PSP games continue to outsell other platforms.
