Weekly Japanese console chart: PSP and DS neck and neck
Saturday 20 March 2010
Combined sales of Sony's PSP beat Nintendo's DS offerings in Japan by a mere 1,211 units or a 3% margin during the week of March 8-14.
Sales of the PSP Go, which has no disc drive and plays digitally downloaded games only, remained just over 1,000, a familiar figure for the newest version of the PSP.
All forms of console hardware sold less than the previous week, though the PSP took the biggest hit after highs of 66,000, which were associated with the launch of the final .hack//Link game and the first in the series on PSP.
The PlayStation 2 was least affected, with only 14 less machines being bought than between March 1-7.
1) Sony PSP: 40,316
2) Nintendo DS: 39,105
3) Nintendo Wii: 31,460
4) PlayStation 3: 26,481
5) Xbox 360: 2,668
6) PlayStation 2: 1,825
