Latest Japanese Sales Charts - Week Ending June 27

July 2, 2004 | By David Jenkins

The Japanese market has started to recover after almost a month of lackluster sales with almost double the amount of units sold compared to last week. However the market is still below the weekly average, implying that the Japanese market in general is still in some amount of trouble.

First week sales for Segas new soccer management title were extremely healthy though with around 215,000 units sold. Namcos Xenosaga sequel also did well with about 186,000 units sold. However Square Enix will be slightly disappointed with the performance of their latest portable Dragon Quest title, which is normally considered the strongest of all RPG brands in Japan.

In hardware sales the PlayStation 2 has retaken the top spot with a 47.74% market share, compared to 44.38% for the Game Boy Advance, 7.02% for the GameCube and 0.48% for the Xbox.
