PSP Hardware Still Out In Front In Japan

This week's Media Create Japanese hardware chart has seen Sony's PSP slipping slightly in sales, but still holding as the overall best-seller for the week, with the Wii and the DS also selling over 10,000 units for the week - stats within.
Market research firm Media Create has revealed data for weekly hardware sales in Japan for the week ending May 25th, following details of the software top thirty. Despite a continued decrease in software sales, demand for hardware rallied slightly - although still at a level slightly below the average for most formats. Nonetheless, Sony's PSP handheld remains the best selling console in Japan, with sales down this week by 6,000 units to 64,449. With a rise in sales of nearly 7,500 units, the Wii was still in second place with 49,047 units sold. Nintendo DS sales rose by around 2,500 units to 37,404 – despite the number one success of Sega’s Let’s Make a Pro Baseball Team!. PlayStation 3 sales rose by over 1,000 units to 9,071, with two software titles in the top fifty. PlayStation 2 sales were almost static at 7,189, while Xbox 360 sales increased by a few hundred to 1,947 units. Overall in the software sales top fifty, there were thirty-two titles for the Nintendo DS, eight for the Wii, three each for the PSP and PlayStation 2, two for the PlayStation 3 and two for the Xbox 360 (including new entry John Woo presents Stranglehold at number forty-six).
