Combined sales of the three-model Nintendo DS line led Japanese hardware sales charts for the week ended May 23, as overall hardware sales were stagnant week-on-week, according to Media Create's latest sales charts. Total DS sales -- including the DSi LL, DSi and DS Lite -- were 26,145, down from last week's 28,564. During the most recent week, the DSi LL sold 14,108, the DSi sold 9,356 and the DS Lite sold 2,681. While the DS led combined sales, Sony's PSP-3000 led individual platform rankings with 23,313 sold, down from 24,475 last week. Combined with just 851 units sold of the UMD-less PSP Go (20 units less than last week), the PSP line sold 23,313, down from 25,346. Earlier this month, the PSP saw weekly sales double on the release of Konami and Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, with total PSP line sales exceeding 61,000 units. Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended May 23, 2010. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
