3DS Tops Japanese Sales Charts

It looks like after some tumultuous times at retail in Japan, the Nintendo 3DS is making a comeback. According to retail sales data from Media Create, the 3DS managed to move 58,837 units last week, while the PlayStation 3 sold 36,061 units – half of what it did the week prior. If anything the price cut is helping, despite the grumblings from the investor class. The PSP remained mostly flat for the week, while the Wii sold 5,000 more than it did a week earlier.

On the software side of things, Dragon Quest 25th Anniversary helped move Wii sales, while Tales of Xillia was a big hit with PS3 owners. The only 3DS title to chart during the week was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, which came in eigth with 10,504 units sold.
