Xbox 360 sales picked up across Japan last week, putting Microsoft's console within touching distance of the PS3.
But Nintendo platforms dominate the depleted market, as Wii and DS games account for 36 of the top 50 entries, according to Media Create data reproduced on NeoGAF.
Taking top honours is SEGA and Platinum Games' Infinite Space on DS. This is the science fiction-RPG where players control and customise a starship. We had a brief look at Infinite Space in 2008, although the game has no Western date yet.
The only other new entry in the top 10 is New Control Play! Chibi-Robo on Wii. This was great on the GameCube. There's no Western date for this, either.
