Portable Horse Training Fever Sweeps Japan

Illustration for article titled Portable Horse Training Fever Sweeps Japan

Out with the old, in with the NEW. The weekly Media Create sales chart is packed with new Japanese releases, with Derby Stallion DS snatching first place from Tales of Symphonia. It's a big week for the Wii and Nintendo DS overseas, as a ton of new titles for Nintendo's hardware platforms sell and sell big.


This week's chart is potentially less good news for the PSP, as two of its big sellers - Super Robot Taisen A Portable and Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G - fall out of the top ten. Will this spell the end to PSP hardware dominance in Japan?

@Fluffy22: I think he was refering to how Sony talked about it driving console sales. As for which one I'll be playing a couple years from now, probably neither. After beating MGS4, I may play it through again one more time with all the other MG games consecutively for the story, but beyond that, I don't get a lot of replay value out of that one for me.
