Japanese hardware sales, August 1 - August 8: The end of video games edition

We're going to break tradition this week and actually talk about Japanese hardware sales, so stick with us: Every single piece of hardware was down last week. 3DS sales were down 74 percent, and it looks like the PSP Go may finally be dead and buried. We're no experts, but from where we're sitting, it looks like the whole world is ending.

We give this whole "video games" thing another week, tops. Be sure and tune in next week for our relaunch as a Beast King GoLion fanfic BBS.
