DS sales rose significantly following the release of chart topping Dragon Quest IV, while Wii ousted PlayStation 3 as the home console of choice for the week ended November 25.
Nintendo's handheld shifted almost 120,000 units, driven by the release of Dragon Quest IV, which obliterated the competition in the latest Japanese software chart. It was a good week for Sony's PSP also. Generallly stuck around the 60,000 units per week mark over the past month, the PSP sold in excess of 75,000 units.
After two weeks as the home console of choice, PlayStation 3 sales dropped below those of Nintendo's Wii, but not by much. Less than 4,000 sales separated the pair.
Microsoft's Xbox 360 also sold relatively well, by its own standards, shifting over 7,000 units.
