Japan Reverts To Xbox Ignoring Habits The Xbox 360's Japanese victory over its hi-def console competitor was short lived. Xbox buying fever has broken in a big way overseas, with the flagging console returning to last place on the Media Create hardware charts. Not that Sony's PlayStation 3 is doing that much better right now. At least Microsoft can blame its drop on depleted stock . The success story this week though is that of the Nintendo DS, which extends its lead over the PSP by a hefty margin. The numbers you need are below.

  • Nintendo DS - 78,666
  • PSP - 64,413
  • Wii - 53,036
  • PlayStation 3 - 11,393
  • PlayStation 2 - 10,168
  • Xbox 360 - 7,358
