Sales for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3 ranked as the second best-selling hardware in the latest Japan retail activity.

Media Create Co. this week reported the PS3 sold 12,433 units between Aug. 27 and Sept. 2 to rank No. 3 in overall hardware sales.

By comparison, the hardware sold 11,896 units to rank third the week prior.

The PS3 ranked two titles in the top 10 for the week, including Capcom Co.’s Sengoku Basara HD Collection at No. 7.

Sony in July said the company’s game division, which includes the Playstation business, incurred a $45 million loss on revenue of $1.5 billion in the first quarter amid declining sales of consoles and handhelds.

By comparison, the division held a $52.3 million profit in the same quarter one year ago.

The Playstation 3 and Playstation 2 sold a combined 2.8 million units in the quarter, down from 3.2 million from one year prior.
