Japan Hardware sales: Nintendo DS still in third place - Image 1 

Japan has always favored Nintendo’s Wii and DS platforms. They’ll often be seen occupying the first two spots on the hardware charts; the Wii in second place and the DS in first place by a huge margin.

However, it seems that the DS may be suffering a slump in sales as this is its second week in third place. Last week all the other platforms experienced an upwards spike in sales except for the DS which suffered a decline.

This week all of the platforms experienced a decline in sales, but what’s of note is that the DS is still maintaining its relative place in sales at third place. Two weeks of data don’t make a trend though; perhaps it’ll pick up in the next few weeks.

Here are the hardware figures for Japan for the week ending on February 10:

  • Wii: 81,737
  • PSP: 75,912
  • DS Lite: 60,464
  • PS3: 23,985
  • PS2: 11,038
  • Xbox 360: 3,615
