3DS back on top in Japan hardware charts

Pilotwings, Homefront enter top 10.

The 3DS is back at the top of the Japanese hardware charts after a few weeks of PSP dominance.

According to the latest Media Create figures, as posted on NeoGAF, Nintendo's new portable sold 28,252 units last week, compared to 24,053 PSPs, bringing its life-to-date sales to 897,095.

PlayStation 3 came in third with 22,265 sales, followed by the DS at 14,956. The Wii sold 8122, the Xbox 360 1898 and the PlayStation 2 1261.

Nintendo will no doubt be happy to see its handheld overtake the PSP, but sales are still dropping – it sold 32,910 the week before.

Over on the software side, Namco's PSP effort Dai-2-Ji Super Robot Wars Z: Hakai-hen took the weekly sales crown, shifting 307,019 copies.

Two 3DS games made the top 10, with Pilotwings Resort debuting at six and Konami's Pro Baseball Spirits 2011 at nine. The PlayStation 3 version of Homefront made it in at seven, with the 360 version entering at 14.
