Another Week In Japan: Hardware and software numbers 1/28-2/3

It's a sad day for the DS in Japan. As Media Create's hardware figures from last week were released, we found out that not only the Wii topped the DS (like the week before), but also the PSP managed to overtake the dual-screened handheld.

Hardware:
  • Wii: 94,473
  • PSP: 72,528
  • Nintendo DS: 67,472
  • PlayStation 3: 41,796
  • PlayStation 2: 12,115
  • Xbox 360: 6,060
According to Media Create, the DS only had one game in the top ten (Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games). That's not surprising, since there were many new releases on other systems, but it's far from the DS dominance that we're used to. Still, it was nice to see some low-key games like After-School Boy, Taiko Drum Master, and Doraemon Baseball getting love in Japan.

*Note: Because Famitsu's numbers were not leaked this week, we used the figures from Media Create. Keep that in mind while comparing the numbers from previous weeks. Also, Media Create doesn't list amounts for games after the top ten, which is why we didn't show them like usual. But hey, you get to see the complete top thirty this time, so there's always that.
