Sony platforms dominate Japan chart

And Warriors Orochi Z ends Resi 5 reign.

Sony platforms take the winners rose in Japan this week as PSP outsells DS and PS3 performs better than Wii.

Games for the Sony machines also bossed the top ten: PS3 and PSP combined three placements each to fill six of the spaces, leaving room for just three DS entries and one Wii title.

PS3 game Warriors Orochi Z debuts at the top of the software chart this week, knocking Resident Evil 5 on PS3 - last week's leader - to two. The Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 5 lingers at 13.

Other new entries this week include New Control Play! Pikmin 2 for Wii, which arrives at six, and acclaimed first-party PSP game Resistance: Retribution at 10.

In total, DS counts 22 top 50 titles, Wii has nine, PSP claims six, PS2 and PS3 notch up five, and Xbox 360 tails with three.
