We stopped posted them a while back because we were running out of things to say — the hardware charts in particularly nearly always occupy the same order of systems, with even the numbers staying fairly predictable.

So why have we decided to post the numbers this week? Gran Turismo 5. Sony's banner franchise had a huge effect on PlayStation 3 sales in the region, shifting over 68,000 consoles and 430,000 pieces of software. But it's a one-two for Sony this week, with PlayStation Portable sales also through the roof on the eve of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. Sony's handheld shifted over 75,000 units for the week.

We've included the full sales numbers after the jump. It's intimate reading for the PlayStation faithful.
