Japan's Weekly Hardware Battle Does Not End With PSPgo

It's a banner week for the PlayStation Portable in Japan as the PSP enjoys chart topping sales and its smaller, digital download only cousin, the PSPgo, manages to not be in last place for a second week.

While combined Nintendo DS sales still outpace the PSP, the PSPgo managed to outsell three other platforms this week: Nintendo DS Lite, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2. Not bad, lil' guy. That price drop is really paying off. Sony must also be pleased that its PS3 outsold the Wii this week two to one.

Here are the numbers for the week of November 1 to 7.

  • PSP - 34,538
  • PlayStation 3 - 23,524
  • Nintendo DSi LL - 22,858
  • Nintendo DSi - 16,038
  • Wii - 11,521
  • PSP go - 2,918
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 2,766
  • Xbox 360 - 2,686
  • PlayStation 2 - 1,460
