With little in the way of new releases from October 5th to the 12th in Japan, Macross Ace Frontier made securing the first place spot on the Media Create sales charts look easy. It might have something to do with the game being rather good and the continued popularity of the PSP. Other notable titles are notable for their absence; Disaster: Day of Crisis for Wii and Cross Edge for PS3 drop off the top thirty, making for a rather poor performance for both titles in Japan. Fortunately for Mario Kart Wii, that cleared some space, giving it a new showing in the top ten. People love wheels! 01. Macross Ace Frontier (PSP) - 104,000 / NEW 02.

PSP is fighting like a rabid dog. if Sony can bang out even more games during the year, it would prolly sell even more. although i will say there are some quality titles on psp, its just the ds got a hefty bunch of them, but dont be fooled DS has a ton of shovelware titles.
this is speaking from an owner of both.
