Still, it's doubtful that anyone at Nintendo felt bad about the current results. The company is currently focused on its new handheld console, the DSi, which leads the top at a great distance from its direct rival, the Sony PSP. Most likely, Nintendo just waits for the Star Ocean excitement to blow over, so that the Xbox 360 would get back to its usual place.
The current Japanese Sales chart is down below:
- PSP: 29,552
- Xbox 360: 25,334
- Wii: 16,973
- PS3: 16,149
- DS Lite: 9,975
- PS2: 5,029
