The Japanese Hardware Chart, Post Gamescom EditionS

What does this week's update on the Japanese console contest have to do with Germany's annual gaming show? Not much, other than timing. It was another week won, ever so slightly, by Nintendo.

The PSP and PlayStation 3 may enjoy first and second place, but Nintendo piled up enough DSs and Wiis to win the numbers war. Here's the tally for the week of August 9 to 15, straight from Media Create.

  • PSP - 35,734
  • PlayStation 3 - 33,057
  • Nintendo DSi LL - 27,923
  • Wii - 25,072
  • Nintendo DSi - 24,850
  • Xbox 360 - 5,065
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 4,809
  • PlayStation 2 - 1,675
