Nintendo DSi LL Has Strong Second Week, Wii Squeaks By PS3 In Japan

The bigger, larger and more enormous Nintendo DSi LL continued to outsell the competition in its second week on the market in Japan, another 67,000-plus hardware units sold. It's a stark contrast to competitor Sony's most recent PSP revision.

While the PSP continues to sell well in Japan—another 38,000 handhelds sold—the PSPgo managed to move less than 4,000 units in the past week, according to sales tracker Media Create. That puts it in Xbox 360 territory, perhaps an indicator of Japanese consumer hardware acceptance for the download-only device.


Sony's PlayStation 3, on the other hand, continues to move at a good clip, with hardware sales way up from the week prior. It managed to be outsold by the Wii this week, but by a mere 115 units. Media Create's numbers are after this.

  • Nintendo DSi LL - 67,243
  • Wii - 46,673
  • PlayStation 3 - 46,558
  • PSP - 38,839
  • Nintendo DSi - 37,021
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 7,268
  • PSPgo - 3,809
  • Xbox 360 - 3,685
  • PlayStation 2 - 2,057
