Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 4/14-4/20

The Wii had a good week in Japan, as far as sales are concerned. With Mario Kart Wii continuing to champion the cause, the little white console almost nabbed second place in hardware:
  • PSP: 85,421
  • Nintendo DS: 44,551
  • Wii: 44,241
  • PlayStation 3: 7,438
  • PlayStation 2: 6,545
  • Xbox 360: 1,076
Even in software, five of the top ten games were Wii titles. Wii Sports found its way back into the coveted ten once again, managing to coexist peacefully with Hudson's Deca Sports. Wii Play, meanwhile, performed the worst in relation to the rest of the Wii games in the top thirty, but still ended up in spot twelve.

Check after the break to see just how well Mario Kart Wii did last week in Japan.
