Japanese Video Game Chart: PSP Fights Back
It?s total handheld domination in the Japanese Video Game Chart this week (courtesy Media Create), with Tecmo Koei?s Dynasty Warriors 7 on PS3 the only home console break in the Top 10. Square Enix?s PSP remake of Final Fantasy IV breezes to the #1 spot with over 100,000 units sold.

1 Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection ? Square Enix (PSP) ? 104,173 / NEW
2 Dynasty Warriors 7 ? Tecmo Koei (PS3) ? 36,548
3 Gundam the 3D Battle ? Namco Bandai (3DS) ? 23,500 / NEW
4 Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy ? Square Enix (PSP) ? 21,741
5 Monster Hunter Portable 3rd ? Capcom (PSP) ? 16,444
6 Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask ? Level-5 (3DS) ? 16,294
7 Phantasy Star Portable 2 ? SEGA (PSP) ? 14,403
8 Nintendogs + cats ? Nintendo (3DS) ? 13,219
9 SD Gundam G Generation World ? Namco Bandai (PSP) ? 10,160
10 Pokemon Black and White ? Pokemon Company (DS) ? 10,025

Interesting to note that the PSP is seeing something of a resurgence following the launch of the Nintendo 3DS - but it?s worth bearing in mind that Japan has had the stereoscopic device on store shelves for a longer period of time. Nintendo?s side is still well represented with Gundam the 3D Battle hitting #3 and Professor Layton stopping by at #6.

The race between 3DS and PSP is even closer in the hardware chart, where Sony?s portable has been given a serious kick up the backside - from 22,911 units to 50,479 units - putting it just a few hundred consoles shy of Nintendo?s 50,710. The 3DS is the only platform to see a dip in sales over last week, but then again it?s still sitting pretty at the top so what?s the care?
