Special edition Wii triples sales in Japan
The PSP remains top of the Japanese hardware chart, despite a very strong week for the Wii after the release of the red 25th Mario Anniversary machine.

The Wii sold 39,308 units last week in Japan, up from 11,521 in the week previously, but was still pipped at the post by the 40,328 PSP sales helped by the release of number one software title Tactics Ogre, which sold 176,153 copies.

Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2 was another new entry at number two on PS3, but the Xbox 360 Sku didn't make the top 20. Pokemon Black & White is still selling strongly, adding another 42,279 units to its Japanese sales total of 4,410,996.
