Sony PSP hardware fell to second place on Media Create's Japanese hardware sales charts, as combined sales of the Nintendo DS line saw a small sales bump that solidified a first place finish for the week. Media Create said Friday that sales of PSP hardware -- including the PSP-3000 and PSP Go -- were 36,697 for the week ended May 9, good enough for second place on the combined sales charts. That's compared to 59,315 units sold the week prior, when the highly-anticipated Peace Walker launched. On an individual platform basis, the PSP-3000 led overall hardware charts for the week with 35,233. The PSP Go sold just 1,464 to come in last place overall. The DS line -- which includes the DSi LL, DSi and DS Lite -- sold 46,393 to top the combined hardware sales charts. On an individual platform basis, the DSi LL was the highest-placing DS hardware with 26,733 sold to capture third place. The DSi sold 15,739 during the week and the DS Lite sold 3,921. Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended May 9, 2010. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
