Weekly PlayStation Portable sales in Japan have edged past the DS for another week, as Sony’s handheld machine continues to gather momentum, barely missing the top spot by little over 3,000 units.
According to Media Create data for the week ended March 9, PSP sold 53,924 units, just shy of the Wii’s 57,068, but still maintained lead over the DS, which sold 48,658 units during the same period.
Elsewhere, the PlayStation 3 sold 21,008 units, sustaining its lead over the PlayStation 2, which totalled 10,429.
Both machines again outsold the Xbox 360, which came in last place with 2,891 units sold.
