  • Posted February 18th, 2009 at 05:03 EDT by

Curious as to what topped the charts in Japan as the number one software seller of 2008? The answer isn't very surprising, with Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G completely destroying the competition.  Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots didn’t fare quite as well, however, barely missing out on the top ten at 11. Unsurprisingly, nine Nintendo exclusives grabbed slots 2-10. So much for shovelware, right?
