Everyone has got something to be proud of this week as the remaining Media Create hardware sales of 2008 emerge from Japan.

DSi is still sitting pretty but PS3 and 360 both see a sharp rise in sales with 32 and 51 percent increases respectively.

Although sales of Nintendo consoles fell, they were still strong enough to reach more than acceptable figures for the week.

  • DSi: 182,518 – down 6,179 (3.27%)
  • PSP: 157,088 – up 38,323 (32.27%)
