Japan Sure Loves That Nintendo DS, Keeps Buying It

Illustration for article titled Japan Sure Loves That Nintendo DS, Keeps Buying It

While the PSP may sit atop this week's list of bestselling hardware in Japan, it's still the Nintendo DS that Japanese gamers love more than anything else.


Cheaper versions of the Nintendo DSi LL, DSi and DS Lite walk away with the biggest share of the pie this week, sales likely spurred by the latest Inazuma Eleven game and that new/old Fire Emblem release. The battle between the Wii and PlayStation 3 sees a wider gap this week, with Nintendo pulling ahead, likely from still strong Wii Party sales.

While the PSPgo dips back into triple digit sales, the Xbox 360 seems to be selling better and more consistently than it had before the release of Monster Hunter Online. Wonder why...

"Laying low in a blood filled trench

killing time 'til my very own death

on my face I can feel the falling rain

never see my friends again

in the smoke, in the mud and lead

smell of fear and feeling of dread

soon be time to go over the wall

rapid fire and the end of us all

Whistles, shouts and more gun fire

lifeless bodies hang on barbwire

battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb

be reunited with my dead friends soon

many soldiers eighteen years

drown in mud, no more tears

surely a war no one can win

killing time about to begin

Home, far away. From the war, a chance to live again

Home, far away. But the war, no chance to live again."
