Media Create Hardware Sales: Nintendo 3DS XL Trumps PS Vita
PS4 and Wii U sales remain relatively stable.
The Nintendo 3DS XL has long since returned to dominance in Japan and the latest hardware sales from Media Create for the week of July 28th to August 3rd indicate as much. The 3DS XL sold 31,740 units in that time, which is only slightly less than the prior week’s 31,789 units. The regular 3DS also saw relatively good sales, selling 7,019 units in the past week.
Meanwhile, PS Vita sales are slightly down in the past week with 17,179 units sold (while the week prior to this it sold 21,875 units). The Wii U has remained steady in its sales with 9,646 units sold this week. As for the PS4, it sold 5,695 units in the past week. This could be due to the lack of major releases for the platform in Japan, with the only real big name being Drive Club in October.
