Media Create has published the latest hardware sales from Japan.
can't topple the PSP it seems. Sony FTW!!!
Software is hurting the 3ds atm. Software sales for this same week saw 6 PSP titles, and only a single 3ds title.
Honestly, I'm quite surprised sales are this strong what with the earthquakes and tsunamis. The PSP is a beast. It's been like this for over a year now. Now that the 3DS is out, however, DS sales have plummeted. I wouldn't be surprised if the PSP reaches 80 million units sold in the next year or so if this keeps up. The second interesting stat here is the Wii's decline, and Microsoft's gradual ascent. They nearly made 2K this week. That's pretty good. Maybe Japan isn't a lost cause after all. I wonder if this shake up will continue for the remainder of the year.
wow look at the wii unbelievable

psp sales dramatically dropped from last week, you know what's going to happen soon. :)
A lot of new games came out last week for the PSP. Last week was an occurrence. This week is PSP at it's usual. It will probably stay this way for a while too what with Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection, Dissidia Duodecim, and Amagami.
360 might finally be able to outsell the PS2?
I wonder if the recent natural disasters have affected sales?
I think 3DS is going take the same rout as the PSPgo (it wont happen so quickly though) especially with the NGP on the way and if titles are the cause for the 3DS not being able to outsell the PSP, then Im afraid its only going to get worse for the 3DS because there are some amazing titles on the way for the PSP.
8K for the Wii and this time last year it was 25K. How the mighty have fallen.
Last gen Sony leaded the market with PS2, now the PS3 is in last place, how the mighty have fallen, fanboys still butthurt :M
How does that make me a fanboy? I'm just pointing out the drop from 25K to 8K. It is a big drop for this gen's leading console.
Thank God for RROD or the 360 would have been in last place 2yrs ago, instead of last place this year.
The Wii has really fallen off, but the 360 is pretty much dead in Japan. M$ might need to pack it up and try again next gen. Those numbers are embarrassing.
