DSi, PS3 Battle For Hardware Championship In Japan (DSi Wins)

Thanks to continued sales of the latest pair of Pokemon games, the Nintendo DSi holds onto its top spot on Japanese hardware charts. Also holding strong? The PlayStation 3.

The newer, cheaper, more matte PS3 retains its second place position on Media Create's hardware chart, probably in part thanks to the release of Tales of Vesperia for the platform. The appeal of less expensive hardware probably doesn't hurt. While sales were down slightly from the week before, they're still much better than pre-slimmed down numbers.

Seeing the biggest week-to-week was the Xbox 360, losing about a third of its sales from the period prior.

  • Nintendo DSi - 66,073
  • PlayStation 3 - 51,055
  • PSP - 21,073
  • Wii - 16,698
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 13,555
  • Xbox 360 - 4965
  • PlayStation 2 - 2723

    At least the japanese ppl know that 360 sucks

      Shut up Peter.
      They always knew that.

    The Japanese are slow to buy the 360 because it is seen as a "foreign" console. Only the Japanese foreign-obsessed nerds (think the opposite of a Japanophile), or people who want specific games only available on the system (such as Idolmaster, which sold quite well) are buying it.

    TL:DR - Shut up fanboys. SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP. This shit has been going on since the 8-bit generation and you need to finally SHUT THE HELL UP.

    All available systems have pros and cons. If any of them were without merit, they wouldn't be seeing any sales.
