3DS stays top of Japanese chart

Quiet week sees small falls in majority of hardware sales

A static Japanese hardware chart means the Nintendo 3DS is still the country's top-selling console, with sales falling by just 673 units.

Last week's Media Create figures saw a sales slump for Japan following the holiday period, and sales numbers continued to fall for all hardware, except the Vita, which managed to sell just seven more units than last week to stay in fourth, and the Nintendo DSi at 9, which went from 387 sales last week to 425.

  1. Nintendo 3DS - 45,752
  2. PlayStation 3 - 12,026
  3. PSP - 10,652
  4. PlayStation Vita - 6,347
  5. Nintendo Wii - 5,956
  6. PlayStation 2 - 1,166
  7. Microsoft Xbox 360 - 825
  8. Nintendo DSi XL - 683
  9. Nintendo DSi - 425

In the software chart a new entry with an improbable name, My Little Sister Can't Possibly Be This Cute Portable Can't Possibly Continue, went straight to number 1 with 53,175 sales. Elsewhere in the top 5 new entries Persona 2: Eternal Punishment and Brothers Conflict Passion Pink entered at 3 and 5 respectively.
