DS continues to lead Japanese hardware chart, PSP closes in For the week ended May 17th, the Nintendo DS series of handhelds remains atop the Japanese hardware sales list, with the Sony PSP following close behind.
On an individual basis, however, the PSP-3000 did hold the top spot, with 24,475 units sold.

The critically-hated PSPGo, which removes the UMD drive, and added little else, moved just 871 units for the period.

The PlayStation 3 saw a jump to 20,463 units sold, pushing past the Nintendo Wii, which sold 17,570 for the week.

The new DSi LL, which has a screen increase of 93 percent from past models, continues to sell well.

Sales for week ended May 17th:

* PlayStation Portable - 24,475
* PlayStation 3 - 20,463
* Nintendo Wii - 17,570
* DSi LL - 15,879
* DSi - 9990
* Xbox 360 - 4370
* DS Lite - 2695
* PlayStation 2 - 1293
* PSPgo - 871
