Japan - This time of year is always the biggest for hardware manufacturers, and that continues to hold true for Nintendo. The sizzling-hot DS and Wii brands improve upon week-over-week sales for the 4th and 5th week in a row respectively, with the DS weighing in at 139k and the Wii landing at 57k for the week. Nintendo took a combined 65.98% of all hardware sales this week.
Sony is struggling to see the same returns, with both the PSP and the PS3 down slightly from the previous week. Clearly a concern for any hardware manufacturer, Sony's PSP is down for the 3rd week in a row in what is supposed to be the busiest time of year. The PS3, a known quantity at this point, is doing its best to keep its head above water and maintain slightly elevated seasonal sales.
