  • submit to reddit

According to Media Create, the Sony's PSP has outsold the DS again this week, sitting at the top of the charts with nearly 280k units sold.

Here are the numbers for Japan:

- PSP: 277,794
- DS Lite: 70,523
- Wii: 24,992
- PS2: 11,373
- PS3: 10,732
- Xbox 360: 1,687

The cause behind this monster spike in PSP sales? You can thank Square Enix and Konami for that. The top two titles in software sales are PSP games, one of course being Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core and the other being Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, with combined sales of over 200k.

With sales looking great in Japan, we can only hope the same will occur when these titles hit the US and UK.

Stay tuned to PSU for more information when next week's sales figures are released.
