Everyone's A Winner In Japan's Weekly Hardware Battle!

We're not taking sides in this week's round up of video game hardware sales in Japan. Look, it's not a contest, Sony and Nintendo. You're both doing just fine.

Microsoft? Well, they're doing just about as well as ever in Japan, with the Xbox 360 continuing to sell somewhere between the Nintendo DS Lite and PSPgo, which translates to "unspectacular." The rest of the contest, namely the Wii versus the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo DS versus the PSP is relatively evenly matched.


The DS as a platform bests the PSP by a couple thousand units, the PS3 does the same to the Wii. But the split between the two most popular video game companies in Japan is pretty close. Here are the raw numbers from good ol' Media Create.

  • PSP - 29,766
  • PlayStation 3 - 28,973
  • Wii - 25,345
  • Nintendo DSi LL - 19,372
  • Nintendo DSi - 13,738
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 3,349
  • Xbox 360 - 3,218
  • PSP go - 1,826
  • PS2 - 1,425
