PSP Still In First In Japan, But It's Still Nintendo's Pie

Sony's PlayStation Portable is still the bestselling (and worst selling) piece of hardware in Japan, moving another 37,000 PSPs of standard variety and nearly another 1300 of the "go" variety.

The PSP secured the top spot on the hardware chart once again, in part thanks to the release of chart topper Kenka Bancho 4: Ichinen Sensou. Like previous weeks, the Wii was right behind it, with considerable distance between Nintendo's home console and Sony's PlayStation 3. The combined strength of the Wii and three flavours of the Nintendo DS give the house of Mario more pie than anyone else this week.

Somebody needs a new runaway hit in Japan to liven this race up.

  • PSP - 37,338
  • Wii - 36,241
  • PlayStation 3 - 27,763
  • Nintendo DSi LL - 24,605
  • Nintendo DSi - 15,586
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 5,029
  • Xbox 360 - 2,510
  • PlayStation 2 - 1,912
  • PSPgo - 1,296


    As great and happy that the PSP is selling well, its not first no matter HOW you look at the situation.
