PlayStation hardware roared over Japan like Godzilla standing on the Tokyo Tower this week, with PS3 and PSP selling almost 100,000 units between them.

PS3 sales have actually risen since Yakuza 3 launched two weeks ago, so Sony will be pleased and punch. Probably pleaseder.

  • PSP – 59,568
  • PS3 – 39,835
  • DSi – 32,102
  • Wii – 16,560

    So many Wii’s have already been sold and seeing as they cost so little to make Nintendo could probaly retire for gen anyway.

    It would’ve been much better if the 360 had sold another 2000 units, though.

    When will Sony stop producing the PS2? I mean they must be getting to a point where they can’t sell as many as they produce in a given week. Will we hear when production officially ends?
