The official numbers in Japan's 2007 hardware and software races are in, and according to Enterbrain, publisher of the Land of the Rising Sun's biggest gaming magazine Famitsu Weekly, the Nintendo DS took home the hardware crown with 7.1 million units sold. That number brought the lifetime-to-date sales of the DS to 21 million.

On the software side, Wii Sports won the year, selling just shy of 2 million copies, and impressive feat considering did not come bundled with the Wii system and had to be purchased separately. The Wii sold 3.6 million units in 2007, for a total of 4.6 million since it launched in November of 2006.

Bringing up the rear was the Xbox 360, selling an abysmal 257,800 systems in 12 months, trailing both the PS3 (1.2 million in 2007) and PSP (3 million in 2007).
