Weekly Japanese Hardware Sales Still Takin' It Easy

Japan is in no rush to get back to its regular video game hardware buying habits, with sales cooling across the board. Even though we have a bunch of new releases, they aren't spurring sales.

Hardware rankings stay as-is, with the Nintendo DSi still grabbing the biggest slice of the hardware sales pie, with the PSP taking second place. The hardware platform to take the smallest hit, week-to-week is the Xbox 360, even with just one title, GRID, making an appearance in the Media Create top 50 software sales chart.


The hardware race for the week of January 12th to the 18th ended with the following winners and losers.

  • Nintendo DSi - 62,525
  • PSP - 42,559
  • Wii - 32,333
  • PlayStation 3 - 20,690
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 18,809
  • Xbox 360 - 9,576
  • PlayStation 2 - 5,760
