Oh, Japanese gamers, how we love you -- after all, only you would buy 150,000 copies of Derby Stallion in one week. Such sales were enough to put this DS horse racing sim into first place, above Band Brothers DX and even the Wii's Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. Besides Derby Stallion and Band Brothers, another DS title that made it into the top ten was Higurashi no Naku Koru ni Kazuna, a murder mystery visual novel.

The beauty of it all is that this DS software success managed to propel DS hardware into second place, barely skating past the Wii:
  • PSP: 58,861 (490)
  • Nintendo DS: 48,884 (12,285)
  • Wii: 48,480 (7,443)

  • PlayStation 3: 17,973 (2,363)

  • PlayStation 2: 7,673 (1,327)

  • Xbox 360: 5,104 (2,549)
To see sales numbers and rankings for the top ten games, just click past the break.
