Black is back, as Japan went all in on PSP purchasing recently, giving the PlayStation family the win in the weekly hardware contest, nearly doubling sales of the Wii.

PlayStation Portable sales saw a big jump in Japan this past week, according to Media Create's latest figures, a little surprising when a pair of Nintendo DS games show in first and third place on the software side of things. The remainder of the chart is less surprising, with the Wii taking second, outselling the PlayStation 3 and the three Nintendo DS platforms clustered together in the middle.

Here is Japan's bestselling console and handheld hardware, for the week of March 1 to 7, with all the good surprises already spoiled.
