Japanese hardware sales, 11 September - 17 September: English Sonnet edition
The DS Lite in Japan, a force high
atop its mighty throne, which cannot fall,
all others can do naught but look and sigh,
their sales so impeded by strongest wall.
For the Lite and the 'Two, arrows rise,
yet the PSP sinks to the abyss,
the downward red glare is blinding to eyes,
so vastly clear that something's amiss.
Wii will do well, if past numbers are true,
the people are ready for a new sun to shine,
and as Sony stumbles almost on cue,
Nintendo steps up and gives us a sign.
For the full story, simply check below,
though these figures may prompt a languid "so?"
