The Nintendo 3DS once again topped the weekly Japanese hardware charts last week, outselling the PlayStation 3 and the PSP combined.

For the week ended September 25, data from tracking firm Media Create, and as reported by NeoGAF, shows that the 3DS sold a total of 70,159 units, up more than 10,000 compared to the previous week.

Sales of both the PlayStation 3 and the PSP were up around 3,000 each, while sales of the Nintendo Wii declined to 14,034, down over 1,000 week-on-week.

The Xbox 360 saw a surge in sales, up to 3,897 sales compared to the previous week's 1,295 -- no doubt due to the release of Gears of War 3.

Elsewhere, the DSi LL, DSi and PS2 saw little change in sales figures compared to the previous week. The PSP Go continued to hold on for dear life, with a total of 15 sales for the entire week.

Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended September 25, 2011. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
