Wednesday, 21st March 2012 17:30 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Media Create has released its weekly retail chart and Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition scored the top spot topped it for DS with 172,027 units moved. On the hardware end, 3DS sales fell 4,934 units over last week but still maintained its number one position.

PSP continued to outsell its new sibling with 18,633 units moved compared to Vita’s 10,021 units. The rest of the hardware chart showed a decline for all current gen, with DSi and DSi LL sales up an extra 155 units and 3 units over the week prior, respectively. This was due to the release of the new Pokemon title on older DS systems.

Other new titles for the week were SEGA’s Shining Bladeon PSP which moved 122,257 units, and Namco’s Madoka Magika Portable for PSP moving 62,408 units. Mass Effect 3 also debuted in Japan this week, moving 8,142 units on PS3.

    I atleast hope we will have that. I will actually go and buy one if 2 things happen:
    1. The PSV drops in price (under €210 would be nice) and
    2. if the price of the damn(ed) memorycard drop SIGNIFICANTLY, cause the prices are insane.. (or if kingstop/sandisk give their version of the memorycards.. I am okay with that too)
