PSP still ahead in Japanese hardware charts

DS and PS3 neck-and-neck but overall sales remain in doldrums

The PSP has retained its lead at the top of the weekly Japanese hardware sales charts, although sales were down over 2,500 units from the previous week to 45,197 (including 6,427 for the PSPgo).

Mirroring a slow week of software sales, all hardware formats saw a drop except for the PSP 3000, for which sales increased by 5,000 units. PSPgo demand though more than halved from the previous week, lowering the overall figure.

Combined Nintendo DS sales were 38,785 (including 5,036 for the DS Lite), down around 4,000 units on the previous week. PlayStation 3 sales were down by 10,000 units to a new total of 38,498. Wii sales fell by even more, down 11,000 units to 26,764.

Xbox 360 sales also dropped slightly to 4,124 units, while the PlayStation 2 remained almost static at 2,031 units.
