The PlayStation 3 has surpassed 3 million sales in Japan, finishing as the best-selling console for another week.
But a re-energised Wii and 360 are also doing well. Microsoft's platform is at 993,015 lifetime sales for Japan, by the way, and should pass 1 million next week.
Game of the week, according to Media Create data (on NeoGAF), is BASARA Battle Heroes on PSP. "Did you mean to search for BASRA Battle Heroes?" asks Google. No: this is apparently part of Capcom's Devil Kings series.
And just 86,000 sales is enough to lead the list, especially as fellow newcomer Muramasa: The Demon Blade shifted just 29,000 copies to finish at two. That Wii game is out here next spring courtesy of Rising Star Games. We've written our hands-on impressions of Muramasa: The Demon Blade already - Oli was quite taken with it.
Other than a PS2 sequel to Arcana Hearts and Wii Fit just managing to stay relevant at 10 again, there's little else of note.
DS games filled 21 of the top 50 slots, while PSP and Wii games filled nine places each. PS3 games took six spots and games for PS2 filled five slots. Xbox 360 games are nowhere to be seen.

UPDATE: Sorry. This story originally read 1 million PS3 sales, when it should have been 3 million all along. We apologise for the error and really will try our best not to do this sort of thing in the future.
