PSP back on top in Japan


Sony's PSP handheld is back on top in Japan - but only just.

The latest hardware figures for last week show that overall hardware sales are still sluggish in Japan, the nation seemingly holding its breath in anticipation of several major upcoming releases.

Still, the PSP was tops with just under 30,000 units sold, followed by the PS3 with about 800 fewer sales.

Then there's the Wii console, third with 25,000, followed by the DSi with just under 14,000. The DS Lite is next with just over 3,000.

A couple of hundred units behind we find the Xbox 360 console, which is chased by whipping-boy the PSP Go with less than 2,000 units sold.

Last is the aging PS2, with 1,400 units shifted.
