In case you were wondering how Sony's software performed during the month of January in Japan, the Famitsu Marketing Data Service recently broke down the sales and delivered some numbers for any curious parties. This information pertains to sales occurring between December 31, 2007 and January 27, 2008.
PlayStation 3 sold 47,000 titles while Sony's portable platform sold 279,300 titles. The PS2, even in its old age, pushed 303,500 titles. These sales translate to market shares of 1.4%, 8.4% and 9.1%, respectively -- that's almost 20% of the total market share. While no information on 360 software was provided, Nintendo's Wii and DS titles are still outselling Sony's products by a significant margin, with over 80% of the total market share for software.
Notable titles include Monster Hunter Freedom 2 and Star Ocean: The First Departure for the PSP -- both of which were in the Top 20 best-selling games of January.
