PSP is Japanese hardware leader

New Kingdom Hearts credited

Last week's Japanese hardware sales are in, the PSP leading the charge according to figures now with us.

Sony's handheld leads the charge thanks to the release of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, the device managing sales in excess of 145,000 units - not bad for January.

The Wii was a distant second with nearly 77,000 units, followed by the PS3 with over 61,000 sales.

Then there's the DSi with 50,000, the DSi LL with 45,000 and the DS Lite with just 10,000.

The Xbox 360 may as well go home with 5,000, followed by the PS2 on 3,000 and the PSP Go on a few hundred units less.
