Yet another week of Nintendo dominating the charts with various 3DS titles. While it’s not surprising to see so many portable games on this list — as Japan lately has really flocked to handheld gaming — it is interesting to see that Sony is only on this list eight times, while Nintendo takes the remaining 22 spots. Take from that analysis what you will, but it’s striking to see just how dominate Nintendo is right now, even in the midst of reporting huge losses.
