Wii Grabs A Slice Of PSP Japanese Hardware Sales

Illustration for article titled Wii Grabs A Slice Of PSP Japanese Hardware Sales

Inasmuch as the Japanese software story stays largely the same, as does weekly hardware sales. The PSP continues to sit pretty atop the Media Create sales charts, but regular "Simple 2000: The Japanese Hardware Chart" watchers will notice that the big black slice is starting to thin. A big Wii sales boost has plenty to do with that, but Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G sales trending down—holiday boost notwithstanding—is likely accountable. Numbers were up across the board, but Nintendo benefited the most.

  • PSP - 100,870
  • Wii - 71,518
  • Nintendo DS - 52,542
  • PlayStation 3 - 10,177
  • PlayStation 2 - 8,802

@rawg:By that logic, when the 360 with hard drive reaches 250, it will regain it's lost market share and Sony will remain in 3rd place.

PSP's still riding a sales spike, DS is still selling at such a steady pace to be unbelievable, same old, same old.

@Jelster:Whatever the next Nintendo system to launch, it will use off the self tech and not be that cutting edge.
