Thanks to a few chart-topping hits—Wii Sports Resort and Tomodachi Collection—the Wii and Nintendo DS had a good week in Japan, each platform seeing a boost in weekly hardware sales. The same goes for the PSP.
Actually, it was a pretty good week for everyone, as hardware sales were up all over—with the exception of the PlayStation 3, which saw only a minor drop from last week. We'd expect the good news for Nintendo to continue next week, when Dragon Quest IX sales are reported. That special DQ IX edition Nintendo DS is sure to do wonders for the platforms pie chart performance.
The hardware contest in Japan, as told by sales tracker Media Create for the week of June 29th to July 5th, panned out like so.
Nintendo DSi - 46,855 PSP - 32,849 Wii - 24,971 PlayStation 3 - 11,196 Nintendo DS Lite - 7,507 Xbox 360 - 5,876 PlayStation 2 - 3,734
