Nintendo 3DS Holds Onto Top of Japanese Hardware Charts

The Nintendo 3DS continued to top the weekly Japanese hardware charts last week, selling more units than the PlayStation 3 and PSP combined. For the week ended October 2, data from tracking firm Media Create, and as reported by NeoGAF, shows that a total of 58,504 3DS units were sold, down 12,000 compared to the previous week, most likely due to there being no killer 3DS titles released in the same period. Overall, there was no shift in the charts, with every console taking up the same position as the previous week. However, sales of every console were down to some degree. The PS3 saw a drop of 9,000 units sold compared to the week before, while the PSP saw a drop of 3,000 units. On Nintendo's side, Wii sales were down by 4,000, while the DS saw a drop of 1,000 compared to the previous week. At the bottom of the charts, the DS Lite and the PSP Go continued to hold on with minimal sales as per usual. Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended October 2, 2011. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
