Square Enix proves once again just how much of a power player it is in the industry. Dissidia: Final Fantasy is currently the top-selling game in Japan, causing PSP sales to get pumped up even higher than the Wii's. Squeenix pulled off the same feat with the release of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII.

For the week of December 21, the PSP sold close to 146,000 units, a far cry from the 72,000 figure it sold the previous week. Nintendo still bagged top spot though, with the DSi selling more than any platform.

The PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 are still lagging behind, though Sony's console sold significantly higher numbers than Microsoft's. Guess their price cut has lost its charm. Here are the sales numbers for the week of December 21:
  • DSi      204,144
  • PSP     145,957
  • Wii     131,054
  • DS Lite     50,308
  • PS3     39,136
  • Xbox 360     12,914
  • PS2     8,662
