Sales for Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360 hardware fell back post a one-week gain in the latest Japan retail figures.

Media Create Co. on Fri. reported that the Xbox 360 sold 1,373 units between Apr. 9 and Apr. 15 to rank No. 6 in overall sales.

By comparison, the hardware sold 3,764 units to rank at No. 6 the week prior, aided by the release of Kinect Star Wars.

Microsoft in Apr. recorded a 16 percent in the division that includes the Xbox business in third quarter results.

The Entertainment and Devices division this week posted revenue of $1.62 billion, a 16 percent decline from the year prior.

Microsoft cited a soft gaming market for the decline. The Xbox 360 held as the top console for the 15th consecutive month, and the company this quarter introduced new entertainment options to Xbox Live service to more than 40 million members.
