You guys are almost heading every Japanese chart presentation with " Nintendo 3DS s back on top " or something similar, when Nintendo s in the lead again. But the other way around s presented as a boring week or not at all.(except two weeks ago)
This way you give Nintendo more positive attention then Sony, I think thats sad for a supposed neutral gaming site.
I've monitored this behavior over the last year, strange that I'm the only one noticing this.
Hope you are not all Nintendo fanboys/girls over there, because I expect you to be a neutral news feeder.
You could see me as a fanboy, but thats not the point I try to bring across.
I hope you guys/girls take a look to the previous chart headers for Japanese sales figures and really learn from this.
Just search for Nintendo or 3DS in the archives, and after that search for Vita, and be surprised for the number of hits you get.
Thanks for considering my comment.

@ Marcel Well, the Vita has only ever actually been on top for one week since launch, and this site falsely reported it as on top for two weeks by not totaling the 3DS and 3DSXL sales together. So I'd say there's not any pro-Nintendo bias here.

Agreed, this site has no bias from what I can tell. Just questionable headlines lol.
