DS and PSP still on top in Japan

Handheld sales highest in quiet week.

The Nintendo DS and PSP continue to shift more hardware than the big boy consoles in Japan, despite a lack of new releases in the week ending 11th April.

Despite a 13 per cent drop in sales, New Super Mario Bros. Wii came out on top in the software charts based on Media Create figures (thanks to NeoGAF for translating), ahead of Koei's Fist of the North Star title for PS3. There were no new releases in the top 10.

PSP and PSPgo sales were 31,592 combined, just short of the DS family's 36,459. PS3 was the best-selling home console, shifting 28,973 units compared to the Wii's 25,345 and the Xbox 360's paltry 3218.

The PS2 sold 1425. GET IN.
