Wii back on top in Japan aid=34139"target="_blank">According to data figures released by Media Create yesterday, the ever popular Nintendo Wii was back on top of Japanese hardware sales, regaining its spot after PSP sales returned to normal. The handheld had seen a burst after a Limited edition "mint green" colorway was released in the country.

The Nintendo DS also saw strong sales moving 49,000 units to place third for the week.

The Sony PlayStation 3 also saw an increase in sales, attributed to the released of the game Yakuza 3. The console sold 21,000 units, compared to just over 13,000 last week. So far the console has almost sold 2 million in Japan. As always in Japan, the Xbox 360 lagged behind miserably, selling almost 3000 consoles for the week to bring up the rear.
