Will the charts show anything different from the fact that the DS Lite sells more than the others combined, lets see:

- DS Lite: 176,853
- PSP: 42,604
- PS2: 26,451
- Xbox 360: 2,246
- GBA SP: 2,229
- Game Boy Micro: 1,766
- DS Phat: 1,530
- Gamecube: 1,039
- Xbox: 11
- GBA: 9

The DS Lite conquers all as usual, makes you wonder what the Wii and PS3 will do to sales over there.

I am constantly blown away by how many DS Lites are sold. That many people can't be wrong. I will be getting myself a DS Lite.

However, nothing will ever replace my PSP. Looks like the PSP is doing quite all right.

Xbox 360 in Japan is a bit of a joke at this stage isn't it?. Still, I don't think there are really any compelling games from a japanese game players perspective that would make them want to buy it just yet. For the japanese it's all about the games, not the technology.

On past news, a spokeperson in the gaming industry stated that Microsoft "must retire" from the Japan market. The new numbers of this month are proving the opposite.

Japanese developers are supporting the 360 with more games. the ones available during this period prove it. If those numbers keeps up during the remaining of the year, MS has a chance to really compete with Japan giants Sony and Nintendo.

Let's see what happen before November and jugde yourselves.

So seriously in all of Japan they only sold 9 GBAs?

Well, lets be honest. The PSP and the DS Lite differ so much that it is not fair to directly compare the two. They both are great in their own ways and IMHO it is very much worth owning both.

It is not the same as comparing a Game Gear to an Atari Lynx 12 or 13 years ago.

So I don't consider one better than the other. But I think I'll always use my PSP more.
