Latest Japanese Sales Charts - Week Ending July 4

July 9, 2004 | By David Jenkins




Despite a significant number of new entries in the top ten, sales have once again fallen in Japan - by almost 40% compared to the previous weeks figures. This was primarily due to a fall in unit sales of Segas soccer management title and Namcos Xenosaga sequel.

The highest new entry was Sonys new party game based on the Ape Escape brand, although this could only manage to sell 38,000 units. Namco and Nintendo co-production Donkey Konga 2 fared no better on 32,000 units, with other titles such as RPG Kishin Houkou Demon Bane and driving game Monkey Turn V achieving their places in the top ten through even less effort.

Hardware sales were once again led by the Game Boy Advance with a 49.73% market share, followed by PlayStation 2 at 42.09%, GameCube at 7.32% and Xbox at 0.46%.
