Japan Charts: 3DS on top again

Posted By | On 22nd, Sep. 2011

The Japanese charts for the week ending September 18 are out, and Nintendo’s handheld, the 3DS, is back on top of the list, overtaking the PS3, which was in the lead by around 15K units last week.

Speaking of which, the PS3, which sold 64,786 last week has seen a significant decline in sales, managing to sell a far less impressive amount- 36,061 units. The 3DS, however, saw a rise of 9K units, jumping up from last week’s 49,076 to 58,837 this week.

In the software section, Dragon Quest Collection on the Wii, a new game out only this week, debuted at the top spot, selling an impressive 263,398 units.
