DSi LL boosts Japanese hardware sales The strong sales of the newly launched DSi LL in Japan have given the overall hardware charts a boost this week, according to Media Create's latest figures.
The larger, updated handheld sold 100,553 units in its first week, less than the DSi's launch of 170,000 but significantly higher than the PSPgo's launch week of 28,000.

Added to DS Lite and DSi sales, total Nintendo handheld sales amounted to 137,674 for the week. PSP sales were 37,326 units with most coming from the PSP-3000 model.

Wii sales increased to 32,844, but still lagged behind the momentum-building PS3 at almost 35,000. The Xbox 360 continued its slow sales in the nation, at 4085 units.

4085 Units, that is pretty dismal. Did an xbox attack a child or something over there?

The Japanese are very supportive of their own. Sony/Nintendo = Japanese, Microsoft = American.

The DSi is big, but almost...obnoxiously big...
