PSP hardware finally trumped in Japan sales charts

Last week we posed the question: "Is the PSP finally knocked out of first place in Japanese charts?" It didn't happen that week; however, we must have jinxed the system because the unspeakable had finally happened this week. PSP has been stripped of its championship title. The hardware to take the top slot would be none other than the PS3.

1. PlayStation 3: 75,311
2. PlayStation Portable: 64,675
3. Nintendo Wii: 45,564
4. Nintendo DS: 39,201
5. PlayStation 2: 7,297
6. Xbox 360: 2,163

The PS3 has shot to the top because of the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4. We wonder if the PSP's dethronement will last long ... or will it be just a one-off thing? Given the PSP's proven track record with steady sales week after week for the past few months and the possibility that hype over MGS4 is calming down, we could see a PSP comeback next week. The PSP only trails behind the PS3 by 11,000 units this week -- that's not much of a gap to fill.
