Bad Company 2 dents Japanese chart

PSP is this week's best-selling machine.

There are five new games in Media Create's Japanese top 10 this week, including Battlefield: Bad Company 2 in seventh (PS3).

But the stampede couldn't shake last week's champion Pokemon Ranger: Tracks of Light from the top spot, nor old-timers Friend Collection (DS) from second or New Super Mario Bros. Wii from third.

The newcomers start with Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman in fourth (PSP), and continue through Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce 2 (PSP) in fifth, Zettai Hero: Modification Plan (PSP) in sixth, BFBC2 in seventh (PS3) and RPG Maker DS in eighth.

The Ultimate Hits version of Dragon Quest IX (DS) is in ninth and Wii Fit Plus rounds the list out in 10th.

The Xbox 360 version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 finished 14th, and right down in 28th there's a new entry for Rockstar's PSP adaptation of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

PSP just beat DS in the hardware stakes, whereas Wii was comfortably ahead of PS3. Predictably, Xbox 360 and PS2 were bottom of the pile.

  1. PSP - 40,316 (PSP 39,125, PSPgo 1191)
  2. DS - 39, 105 (DSI XL - 21,604, DSi - 13,581, DS Lite - 3,920)
  3. Wii - 31,460
  4. PS3 - 26,481
  5. Xbox 360 - 2668
  6. PS2 - 1825
