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

Media Create Co. this week reported the PS3 sold 11,813 units between Sept. 3 and Sept. 9 to rank No. 3 in overall hardware sales.

By comparison, the hardware sold 12,433 units to rank third the week prior.

The PS3 ranked two titles in the top 10, including Rockstar Games’ Max Payne 3 at No. 3 with 24,264 units sold at launch.

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.
