Mario Party Leads Slow Post Golden Week Sales Period

 
The only new release in the top 20 was Sony's Starhawk.

The game market slowed following the Golden Week holiday period. The top selling game last week was once again Mario Party 9, but its sales fell from last week's 144,585 to just 37,353 units. The numbers quickly fall, with 10th place not even making it above the 5,000 mark.

Hardware sales slowed as well. 3DS dropped from last week's 91,868 to 46,425 units. PlayStation Vita fell to 6,340 units, its lowest weekly total yet.
