To re-word a famous Obama quote: “Change has come to Japan”.

After many weeks at the top of the hardware pile, PSP has dropped to second with sales of 38k. PS3 ruled the roost with 50k units sold in the country, last week, most likely down to the recent release of Yakuza 4 in the country: the game sold just under 400k in its debut week.

Third went to Wii, with 31k sold.

“The times, they are a changing,” as Bob Dylan once said [Jesus Christ – Ed].

Full list is below. Last week’s data is here.

  • PS3 – 50,164
  • PSP – 38,017
  • Wii – 31,101
  • DSi LL – 20,765
  • DSi – 14,256
  • DS Lite – 3,953
  • Xbox 360 – 2,419
