Gran Turismo 5, Monster Hunter Are Very Kind To PlayStation Hardware

The release of Gran Turismo 5 in Japan and the build up to Monster Hunter Portable 3rd give the PlayStation family a week to completely dominate overseas. Just how helpful were GT5 and the latest Monster Hunter?

Well, the PSP was actually down from its spectacular sales from the week prior, with the PlayStation 3 more than doubling its popularity week to week. The new Gran Turismo 5 PS3 bundle was certainly a boon to sales of Sony's now-gen console.

Wii sales were up too, presumably helped by the recently launched Mario Sports Mix. Here's how Media Create sees the console war shaking out for the week of November 22 to 28.
