Media Create Japan Hardware Sales: July 23rd-29th

As expected, the Japanese release of Hot Shots Golf 5 gave the PlayStation 3 a much needed boost in sales. Sony's powerhouse has been dragging its feet in Japan, and hasn't seen a decent spike in sales since the release of Gundam Musou way back in March - not even Ninja Gaiden helped. While it's highly unlikely the momentum will last past this week, the boost does illustrate the reasons why the PlayStation 3 is in such a slump - no consistency between release of notable software.

Sales of the Nintendo Wii went unaffected by the release of Mario Party 8, as the console sold 77k, which is around it's average of sales. But when sales are as high and consistent as the Wii's, boosts tend to not happen as much. In addition to that, the Wii continues to have supply constraints in Japan. And rounding out the report is the PSP, which continues to sit comfortably in its mid-30s.

Nintendo DS 150,584
Nintendo Wii 77,169
