PlayStation Holds Its Own Against The Power Of Pokemon

While Pokemon Black and White may still be the hottest thing going in Japan right now, with Kirby's Epic Yarn only slightly cooler, PlayStation hardware is still doing just fine in Japan.

This week, Sony manages to outsell Nintendo hardware overseas, thanks to strong sales of the PSP and comparatively sluggish sales of the Wii. A little boost from the PSPgo, which now selling the thousand, and the PlayStation 2, helps keep Sony on top.

Japan's bestselling platform? Still the Nintendo DS. Here we go again for the week of October 11 to 17.
