Another Week In Japan: Hardware and software numbers 1/28-2/3

It's a sad day for the DS in Japan. As Media Create's hardware figures from last week were released, we found out that not only the Wii topped the DS (like the week before), but also the PSP managed to overtake the dual-screened handheld.

Hardware:
  • Wii: 94,473
  • PSP: 72,528
  • Nintendo DS: 67,472
  • PlayStation 3: 41,796
  • PlayStation 2: 12,115
  • Xbox 360: 6,060
According to Media Create, the DS only had one game in the top ten (Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games). That's not surprising, since there were many new releases on other systems, but it's far from the DS dominance that we're used to. Still, it was nice to see some low-key games like After-School Boy, Taiko Drum Master, and Doraemon Baseball getting love in Japan.

Check after the break to see the full list of software rankings from last week.

Software:
  1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) --- 820,000
  2. Devil May Cry 4 (PS3) --- 205,000
  3. Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut (PS2) --- 117,000
  4. Haruhi Suzumiya's Wonderment (PS2) --- 114,000
  5. Wii Fit (Wii) --- 73,000 (1,356,000)
  6. Disgaea 3 (PS3) --- 55,000
  7. Devil May Cry 4 (Xbox 360) --- 40,000
  8. Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games (DS) --- 34,000 (175,000)
  9. Assassin's Creed (PS3) --- 28,000
  10. Winning Eleven: Ubiquitous Evolution 2008 (PSP) --- 26,000 (102,000)
  11. Wii Sports (Wii)
  12. Family Ski (Wii)
  13. Mario Party DS (DS)
  14. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd (PSP)
  15. Need for Speed: Pro Street (PS3)
  16. Need for Speed: Pro Street (PS2)
  17. Professor Layton 2 (DS)
  18. Taiko Drum Master DS (DS)
  19. Doraemon Baseball: Dramatic Stadium (DS)
  20. Mario Kart DS (DS)
  21. Wii Play (Wii)
  22. Final Fantasy IV (DS)
  23. Lucky Star: Misasagi Sakura Gakuen Sakura Fuji Festival (PS2)
  24. Nepleague DS (DS)
  25. After-School Boy (DS)
  26. Dragon Quest IV (DS)
  27. Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii)
  28. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
  29. Mario Party 8 (Wii)
  30. Animal Crossing Wild World (DS)
*Note: Because Famitsu's numbers were not leaked this week, we used the figures from Media Create. Keep that in mind while comparing the numbers from previous weeks. Also, Media Create doesn't list amounts for games after the top ten, which is why we didn't show them like usual. But hey, you get to see the complete top thirty this time, so there's always that.
