Japan: PSP tramples on 3DS for second week running

Sony’s PSP might be struggling to pull in the punters in the west, but things over in The Land of the Rising Sun are another kettle of fish altogether, with the handheld yet again trumping Nintendo’s 3DS in the weekly hardware race.

The pint-sized platform raked in another 35,478 units for the week ended April 4, while 3DS had to settle for second place with 32,910 units shifted.

In what has been an auspicious couple of weeks for Sony, PlayStation 3 once again continued its lead over the Wii, moving 22,431 units, down slightly from last week’s 27,453.
