Uncharted 2 helps PS3 cause in Japan

But nothing can budge DS Pokemon.

The PS3 Slim continues to sell well in Japan, bolstered this week by the arrival of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

The Sony console sold 30,231 units, according to Media Create data, while Naughty Dog's new game finished fifth, selling 53,827 copies.

But, like last week, the hardware champion was DS (51,735 units) and the software champion was Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver (164,721 units). There was little change in the top five either, as Wii Fit Plus, Tomodachi Collection and Inazuma Eleven 2: Threat of the Invader followed the leader.

Okami Wii, a fellow newcomer, finished sixth with 23,810 sales.

The PSP sold second best (33,508 units), incidentally, while the Wii tucked in in fourth (29,965 units). Meanwhile, Xbox 360 and PS2 were well off the pace, selling 3662 and 2109 sales respectively.
