Japan Hardware Sales: 3DS XL on Top, PlayStation Vita at Second Place
Sales of Dragon’s Crown help bring Sony’s handheld higher.
The latest Media Creates sales are in, and once again Nintendo’s 3DS XL is on top thanks to a strong release by way of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies which sold more than 250,000 units since debuting.
The 3DS XL managed to sell 36,350 units, slightly down from last week’s 41,322 units from when Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros. debuted. The PlayStation Vita had a better than expected sales week, selling 19,866 units this week thanks to the release of Atlus’s Dragon’s Crown. The normal 3DS still managed to make a mark on the charts though, selling 18,625 units this week.
Again due to Dragon’s Crown releasing (with the PS3 version of the game managing the third position in the software sales charts), the PlayStation 3 managed to sell 11,900 units this week, as the Wii U slides down to fifth place at 11,373 units sold. Pikmin 3 meanwhile tumbled down to the tenth position in the software charts.
