The numbers are in for hardware and software sales in Japan this week, and…well they’re pretty disappointing. Freedom Wars claimed the top spot again with a solid second week, but nothing else really impressed. Only one brand new game managed to crack the top twenty, and with only 3,602 sales at that. Hardware sales were down almost completely across the board, with only PlayStation 3 and PSP slightly topping last week’s numbers. The Japanese market (and really the video game market in general) is about due for a pick-me-up! Click below for the full sales breakdown.
