Japan: Nintendo Takes More than 59% of Total Market Share for 7th Week In A Row

12/18/08

Japan: The latest hardware data has been released and Nintendo has taken 59% total market share or better for the seventh week in a row. DSi (173k) and DSL (31k) combine to sell two hundred thousand, and the Wii (91.6k) vaulted to almost one hundred thousand units.

Sony's three systems all had modest gains from the previous week, with the PSP hitting 71.k and the PS3 hitting 33.7k, and the not-yet-forgotten PS2 still selling more than 6k.

The 360 brings in the rear for this-gen hardware at 11.8k.

This is turning out to be a good several weeks for the Wii in Japan. First the Dragon Quest X announcement, the other the solid Wii sales blowing away its console competitors.

Most recent anonymous: If he was just talking about this week it wouldn't be 69, either, but over 70%; possibly rounding to 71. However, the previous six weeks must not all have been this high.

Correct @ JJS. The combined Nintendo market share for the last 6-7 weeks went as low as 58.7something, which is the low mark from which the title was derived.
