Sony, we know you're trying hard, which is why we think it must sting all the worse when you wake up to sales figures like this.

Oh, the horror. Be sure to keep angry fanboys and dubiously trained pet bulls away from the monitor this week, as it displays an awful lot of red. Even the mighty DS Lite experiences the strange sensation of slipping, possibly caused by the tight grip of an overweight sibling. The ranking, according...

The ranking, according to number of units sold: - DS Lite: 141,487 9,460 (7.17%) - PSP: 24,653 2,997 (13...

The sheer volume of words being displayed on the front page of this blog is, quite frankly, entirely ridiculous. It's time for a change. It's time we inundate you with the accountant's best friend and the alphabet's greatest foe. It's time we unleash the Japanese hardware sales charts for the week r...
