Business as usual in Japan: The Nintendo DS is continuing to lead the hardware sales charts, followed by Wii, selling only half the units compared to the sales leader, and PlayStation Portable. Sony's PlayStation 3 again saw sales below the 10,000 unit mark, while Microsoft's Xbox360 sales continues to hover around the 2,000 units sold. Both consoles probably need the release of a compelling software title to kickstart sales again.
Overall, it was a rather unimpressive week with total sales being down the second week in a row, even compared to pre-Golden week data. In particular Nintendo's DS sold about 50,000 units less than in the previous week.
