The new larger-screened Nintendo DSi LL outsold all other hardware in Japan during the week ended November 22, selling 100,553 units in two days, and toppling the week's sales for PlayStation hardware that ruled a week prior.

Weekly figures from tracking firm Media Create now show three different versions of Nintendo's popular DS handheld: DSi LL, DSi, and the DS Lite. Total sales for the DS line during the week were 137,674 units. The DSi LL figures align closely with numbers recently released by research firm Enterbrain.

The DSi LL's sales from November 21st to 22nd handily topped this week's PlayStation 3 sales, which have been solid since the console's price reduction and hardware form factor revamp. PS3 led hardware charts in the two weeks prior to this week. Last week, PS3 and its handheld counterpart PSP together led the hardware charts.

For this most recent week, the Nintendo Wii placed third place, and managed edge past the PSP. Sales of the new UMD-less PSP Go dropped again from the prior week to 4,574 from 6,427. The new handheld debuted on November 1.

The rest of the Japanese hardware rankings for the week ended November 22 are below:

DSi LL: 100,553
PS3: 34,752
Wii: 32,844
PSP: 32,752
DSi: 32,070
DS Lite: 5,051
PSP Go: 4,574
Xbox 360: 4,085
PS2: 2,024
