Sony's PSP continued to dominate the Japanese dedicated video game hardware sales charts this week, selling nearly double that of the Nintendo 3DS. For the week ended May 22, the PSP took the top spot, selling a total of 30,463 units, although it was down by just over 4,000 compared to last week, according to data from tracking firm Media Create and reported by Neogaf. In fact, every single console was down in sales, with the 3DS seeing a drop of around 1,000 to 17,240 and the PS3 dropping 1,000 to 12,935. Elsewhere, the Wii, Nintendo DS and PS2 all saw slight drops, while the PSPgo continued to fade out of existence, down to just 65 sales compared to 171 last week. Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended May 22, 2011. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
