Japan: PSP sales double - beat Wii

Dec 21, 2007

Weekly PSP sales more than doubled during the week ended December 16 as Sony's handheld left all but the mighty DS in the shade.

As is the norm, DS was the bestselling system, with sales up almost 55,000 week-over-week.

However, it was PSP sales, which shot up by 93,000, that were most surprising, especially considering that only one PSP title made the latest Japanese software chart - Hot Shots Golf Portable 2 at No19.

Wii sales were up by over 50,000 units as PS3 sales slumped dramatically. PS2 sales witnessed a less significant fall, while 360 sales were in line with the previous week's figures.

  • Nintendo DS - 222,144
  • PSP - 184,610
  • Wii - 170,558
  • PlayStation 3 - 63,720
  • PlayStation 2 - 18,025
  • Xbox 360 - 8,561
