PSP continues winning streak in Japan

Sony's PlayStation Portable made it another week on top of the Japanese hardware chart.

There was little change in the hardware totals from last week, with PSP sales falling just 300 units. The continued dominance of the Sony system can in part be attributed to the success of Capcom's Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, which sold another 124,000 units during the week ended April 20 to retain the No2 spot in the Japanese software chart.

Nintendo's DS was in second place with almost 45,000 sales, while the Wii trailed its handheld sibling by just 310 unit sales.

Sony's PlayStation 3 again fell short of the 10,000 sales mark, only narrowly outselling its predecessor, while Xbox 360 sales just topped 1,000 units.

PSP - 85,421
Nintendo DS - 44,551
Wii - 44,241
PlayStation 3 - 7,438
PlayStation 2 - 6,545
Xbox 360 - 1,076
