VGChartz writes: For the first time since these articles have been written, PS3 had the top selling title for the week in Japan. In previous weeks, big titles for PS3 were overshadowed in sales by other, bigger games. The recent Devil May Cry 4 vs. Smash Brothers battle was the latest example in this pattern. However, this week, there was no other big game. In fact no other game sold over 50,000 units this week, leaving Yakuza 3 as the clear victor, since it sold over 140,000 units.
-PS3 had only title in the preliminary data, but because software sales were down overall, PS3 sold the most software in the data.
- Software sales are down by nearly 33% from last week in the preliminary data.
-DS software outsold PSP software roughly 3:1 in the preliminary data.
Hardware Predicted Totals:
PSP: 60,000 to 75,000 units
DSL: 45,000 to 55,000 units
Wii: 50,000 to 60,000 units
PS3: 25,000 to 35,000 units
PS2: 6,000 to 10,000 units
360: 1,500 to 3,500 units
