PSP beats out 3DS for weekly sales in Japan The Nintendo 3DS launched in Japan in late February and held the top spot for sales, easily, for the first three weeks.
VG24 has reported this week, however, that for the week ended March 27th, the PSP has taken the top spot, following the launch Final Fantasy IV Complete.

The PSP (Go and 3000) combined for 51,095 unit sales while the 3DS saw 50,710.

Sony's victory this week looks like a clear anomaly as year-to-date (YTD) figures have the 3DS at 792,954 to the PSP's 584,585. The 3DS has only been out for a month.

Final Fantasy IV Complete was the major factor behind the sales, as the game moved 104,000 copies, tripling up on the next best-selling game, Dynasty Warriors 7.

The PSP is cheaper...and a lot of people in japan are buying systems that they only intend to use for a short time, while the rolling blackouts are in effect.
