Both DS and PSP sales increased in Japan this week, although Nintendo’s handheld is the clear winner this time around.

Level 5′s latest DS title, Spark/Bomber helps the handheld increase overall sales by around 13,000 units this week, selling a total of 57,582, while Project Diva and Tales of Phantasia helped PSP sales to an impressive 36,342.

    It looks like the Wii is losing steam worldwide and I think this will make Nintendo release a new console in early 2012.

    Great week for the PS3 (is there some software pushing that, or is it still the newer model?)… and on the flipside of that, if the PSPGo keeps slipping as it is then soon enough they’ll stop tracking it.

    Sengoku Basara 3 did pretty well so maybe its because of that.
