In Japan, the PSP and Nintendo DS platforms are still outselling the home console competition. And it's the bigger versions of each portable platform, the standard PSP-3000 and Nintendo DSi LL, that Japan's buying more of.

Sony's PlayStation Portable once again tops the charts, thanks to strong sales of God Eater and the three-way split of the Nintendo DS platform. Combined, the DS would have sold some 52,000-plus units, but that's not how sales tracker Media Create does it.


This week's hardware chart looks a lot like last week's, but here are the finer details for the week of February 1 to 7.

  • PSP - 43,163
  • Wii - 36,149
  • Nintendo DSi LL - 28,080
  • PlayStation 3 - 25,450
  • Nintendo DSi - 19,116
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 5,410
  • Xbox 360 - 3,651
