PSP still on top in Japan

DS and Wii playing catchup.

The PSP is still the number one selling hardware platform in Japan, according to Media Create data.

More than 85,000 of Sony's handhelds were sold last week, along with 221,000 copies of hit PSP exclusive Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G.

The DS is in second place with just over 47,000 sold, followed by the Wii at 46,000. The PS3 is outselling the PS2, though not by a huge margin, while the figure for Xbox 360 is a bit of a shame.

  1. PlayStation Portable - 85,721
  2. Nintendo DS - 47,158
  3. Nintendo Wii - 46,296
  4. PlayStation 3 - 8232
  5. PlayStation 2 - 6834
  6. Xbox 360 - 1147
