Microsoft sells 15,000 slim Xbox 360 units in Japan at launch Microsoft has sold 15,000 of the new slimmer Xbox 360 units during launch week in Japan, giving the console its strongest week in the region in a very long time.
Overall, 17,370 Xbox 360s were sold in the nation.

The previous week saw sales of just 2060, weak even by the Xbox's normal Japanese standards.

Because the console went on sale on the 24th, the weekly figure only accounts for four days worth of sales. The slim model sells for 29,800, while the Elite sells for 24,800.

In Japan, the DS line remains very strong, with the DS Lite, DSi and DSi LL selling a combined 61,141 units.

Full chart via GI:

DSi LL: 41,676
PSP: 23,257
PS3: 19,578
Wii: 19,115
Xbox 360: 17,370
DSi: 17,306
DS Lite: 5209
PS2: 1530

PSPgo: 845
