The numbers for Japan's top 100 for 2008 revealed

18 February 2009

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?
