Nintendo Doing XL Sales In Weekly Japanese Console War

Just like last week, the cheaper, re-colored Nintendo DSi XL is killing it in the sales department, enjoying a comfortable lead against the PlayStation and Xbox competition.

The Nintendo DS family benefited from more than just a recent price cut. Strong sales of games like Love Plus+ and Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 3rd Story also probably pushed a lot of those new handhelds. The same for the Xbox 360, which saw about an 800% increase, thanks to Monster Hunter Frontier.

According to Media Create, these are the bestselling consoles and handhelds in Japan for the week of June 21 to June 27.
