This week's Media Create hardware sales numbers are in, with the Nintendo DSi retaining its top spot on the charts, thanks to continued software sales of Tomodachi Collection and the latest Pokemon re-releases.
Less stellar were this week's Wii sales, which sunk to below 12,000 units for the week ending September 27. The dip in Wii sales is likely due in part to the price drop that Nintendo announced during the Tokyo Game Show, a cut that didn't go into effect until today, October 1. Speaking of price drops, how's that cheaper PS3 holding up?
Not too shabby, even if sales of Sony's console are down from the week prior. But with the exception of the Nintendo DS Lite, everyone was down following a week of slow releases.
Check back next week to see the impact of that cheaper Wii. And keep an eye out near the end of the month when the PlayStation 3 gets Bayonetta and Tekken 6 while the Wii gets Super Robot Taisen NEO and Sin & Punishment 2.
