The release of Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 also helped PS3 sell a few more units compared to last week, but not by much. While BF3 was also released on 360 in the region, it didn't help console sales at all, as units moved were down by 5 over last week.

Most hardware sales for formats other than 3DS, PSP, or PS3 were either down, flat, or slightly up compared to the prior week.

  • 3DS: 145,271
  • PSP: 27,952
  • PS3: 26,966
  • Wii: 11,725

  • PS2: 1,457
  • DSi: 1,057
  • DS Lite: 33
