Media Create has released its sales chart for the week of November 8-14, and it finds Wii more than tripling in sales over last week with over 300 percent growth, thanks to the Japanese release of the Mario anniversary Wii and the Wiimote Plus on November 11.

While it sounds like good news for Nintendo, PSP still bested the console by 1,020 units. Considering the small gap between the two, it’s likely Wii will take the lead next week.

PS3 sales were down by 2,410 units this week, but still strong enough to maintain its third-place position for four or so weeks in a row. Xbox 360, interestingly enough, saw neither growth nor decline for the week as it sold the same amount both weeks.

Combined SKUs for DS hit the 34,457 mark, with DSi LL leading the group. Lifetime to date, the current DS line-up is at 15,923,471 in Japan.
