Micro Drops in Japanese Sales

I wish we had some US figures for you, but until then, these will have to do. From 9/19 – 9/25, the Micro dropped two spots from first in sales to third, slightly behind the PSP. Here’s the breakdown:

NDS 68,123
PSP 50,629
GBM 46,529
PS2 25,518
GBASP 12,483
GCN 2,267
GBA 448
XBX 98

Even given the drop, it’s apparent that Nintendo handhelds are doing very well in Nippon. For what it’s worth, some major retailers in the US have been selling out of Micros, but no word on if that’s due to low inventory or high turnover. We’ll have to wait and see.
