Media Create’s hardware and software sales charts are out for the week of May 18th to 24th and while the PS4 and New Nintendo 3DS XL being neck-and-neck in sales isn’t surprising, it is interesting to note sales for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

In its debut week, CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sold 67,385 copies which was enough to unseat previous week’s best seller Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (which has since dropped to seventh place and only sold 5,591 units on the PS4 with lifetime units at 21,504). Minecraft: PS Vita Edition still has a surprising amount of strong sales with 11,898 units sold this week and 167,176 units over its lifetime. This was followed by Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition which sold 10,876 units and averaged 243,559 lifetime sales.

The rest of the chart is fairly standard with Mario Kart 8 in sixth place and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire in ninth, both games hanging on with strong sales several months after release. What are your thoughts on the success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? Let us know in the comments.
