Nintendo DS sweeps Japanese top ten

The Nintendo DS is unstoppable in Japan, and I’d be interested to hear if what has occurred this week there in terms of software sales has ever been recreated by a system in the past. Led by Final Fantasy 3 with more than 500,000 units sold, the remaining nine slots in the Japanese software sales chart are filled by DS titles. It’s really quite amazing, and I’d attribute it to the strength of the system and its software before I’d buy into any spin that the industry is hurting. Also of note, Nintendo accomplished this during the slow summer doldrum months when selling software is toughest. UPDATE: The link below goes to Gamasutra, which has the list.
