Japanese Hardware War Now Officially Boring

Minor fluctuations in the currently tepid Japanese console race don't make this week's Media Create chart all that exciting, to be honest. A slightly slinking PlayStation presence and marginally expanded Nintendo one isn't exactly thrilling.

But neither was the software contest, which saw a pair of Nintendo DS titles beating out the Japanese release of Mass Effect. The Xbox 360 game gave Microsoft's console a slight bump in sales, but not enough to push it past PlayStation 2 sales.

Wii sales are slightly up, PS3 sales slightly down. And that's about as heated as it got. The numbers are after this.

  • Nintendo DSi - 33,833
  • PSP - 27,536
  • Wii - 16,233
  • PlayStation 3 - 10,932
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 5,631
  • PlayStation 2 - 4,075
  • Xbox 360 - 3,854
