PSP Still Winning The War In Japan

The PlayStation Portable may not have had another stellar performance on par with its showing in Japan last week, but the PSP is still resting comfortably atop the US's hardware chart.

Sony's portable managed to move another 39,125 units in Japan last week, according to sales tracker Media Create, outselling the Nintendo DS platform by a handful of units (the DSi, DSi LL and DS Lite did 39,105 in sales, combined). Half the pie still belongs to Nintendo, though, thanks to continuing strong sales of the Wii and DS.

Here are the top selling hardware platforms in Japan for the week of March 8 to 14.

  • PSP - 39,125
  • Wii - 31,460
  • PlayStation 3 - 26,481
  • Nintendo DSi LL - 21,604
  • Nintendo DSi - 13,581
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 3920
  • Xbox 360 - 2668
  • PlayStation 2 - 1825
  • PSP go - 1191


    With Monster hunter tri and the new Metal gear. The Japs are in for one heck of a PSP filled year.

      A new Final Fantasy too - when SE get round to announcing a release date. I would expect a late 2010 release now that FFXIII is out the door.

      Btw Kotaku, re-read the first sentence.

    Whatever you do, don't mention the war.

    good for them. the psp is useless to me. im pretty sure this is the year of the announcement of new handhelds though. exciting.
