Japanese DS Sales Decline, PSP Overtakes DSi This Week

Nintendo DS sales saw a decline this week, allowing the PSP to overtake the DSi as this week's top selling platform on the Japanese hardware sales charts, reports tracking firm Media Create.

For the week ended October 3, the DSi sold 24,937 units, a roughly 50 percent decline from last week, and sales of other versions of the Nintendo DS declined as well.

PSP sales remained consistent from last week, leaving the platform on top of the charts as DS sales decreased.

The slowing Nintendo DS sales correlate with the steady decline in Pokemon Black/White sales. While the game still tops the software sales charts, it has sold less and less each week since its successful launch.

Sales of other platforms remained constant, leaving the overall hardware sales rankings largely unchanged.

Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended October 3, 2010. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
