    Square Enix’s Dragon Quest Collection for Wii has overtaken the immensely popular Tales of Xillia to take the number one position in the Japanese hardware charts. The Nintendo 3DS is also sitting pretty atop of the Japanese hardware charts selling a respectable 58,837 units. Not a bad week for Nintendo or Square Enix!

    PS3: 36,061 (64,786)
    PSP: 25,122 (25,391)
    Wii: 15,406 (10,743)
    DSi LL: 2,869 (2,882)
    DSi: 2,234 (1,957)
    PS2: 1,317 (1,386)
    X360: 1,295 (1,219)

    You do mean "Software" in the thread title right?

    I'm not that surprised honestly, that this tops the chart though. They do seem to love DQ over there [​IMG]

    Off topic, but damn, the PSP sold over 20k units there that quickly? I think the PSP sells like, 20k units a year in the US at this point.

    Regardless, this isn't that surprising. The DW/DQ games are immensely popular in Japan, and a collection like this would easily gain plenty of popularity.

    Sony didn't you say the PSPgo would change how we use games? yes you did.
    I guess you didn't think that one through.
    Same goes for PSvita. No backwards compatibility with UMD's.. Naughty, silly, stupid, unreliable, Sony.

    I want this game, I like the whole series.

    3DS got a plus 10k boost this week, Most likely because of Nintendo good conference last week, there hasn't been any games out lately that could warrant a raise in hardware sales otherwise.

    yes, they'll let you buy a bulky external UMD drive cloner that rips the UMD and uploads it to your PSVita all signed and ready to go.

    then pirateers will buy that device wholesale and crack the living shit out of the signer and unleashes hell upon PSVita security, signing everything from here to my next paycheck.

    j/k XD was laughing more at PSPGo. At least they got 1 per day average. it would be horrible if they sold only 3 in one week. [​IMG]

    Look at Sony's past security attacks, this may be probable...
