Japanese charts: PS3 on top

Xbox 360 tumbles out of sight.

The PS3 remains the top-selling Japanese console this week, and puts daylight between itself and nearest challenger, the Nintendo Wii.

Only DS and PSP count new entries of any note in the software chart, however. These are Mobile Suit Gundam and Disgaea 2 for PSP, and some Yugioh 5D game for DS.

Out of the top 50, nearly half (22) of the list is occupied by games for DS, according to Media Create data (reproduced on NeoGAF). The rest of spaces divide more evenly: 10 games for Wii, nine games for PSP, five games for PS3 and four games for PS2.

The Xbox 360 is absent, then, as platform sales tumble down to the 5000 mark.
