Media Create has released its sales chart for the week of November 15-21, and it finds Xbox 360 tripling in sales over last week’s  2,686 units to over 7,000 units moved, likely thanks to Kinect’s release in the country last Saturday.

However, Kinect was only out for two days during the reporting period, so PSP still took the top spot as it’s grown accustomed to.  Last week the handheld moved over 40K units, this week it moved a whopping 96,601.

PS3 sales were up over the previous week, and even PS2 managed to move 22 units for the week.

Combined SKUs for DS hit the 44,290 mark, with DSi LL leading the group. Lifetime to date, the current DS line-up is at 15,9267,761 in Japan.

Wii fared poorly this week compared the Mario anniversary high it had been riding, and sold 11,457 units less than the week prior.
