After a significant spike in sales last week, with the release of a number of new hardware bundles, the PlayStation 3 saw sales more than halve to 18,354 units. By comparison, the Xbox 360 saw sales double to 12,759 units, as its own new hardware bundles proved successful.
Finally, in last place, the PlayStation 2 experienced a sales drop of just under 1,000 units to 5,743.
Overall in the software top 50, there were 26 titles for the Nintendo DS, nine for the Wii, six for the PlayStation 2, four each for the PlayStation 3 and PSP, and one for the Xbox 360.
