The latest Media Create hardware charts are now available, charting the success of consoles in Japan. Surprising no on, the Nintendo 3DS XL was the top-selling platform with 20,304 units sold. The PlayStation Vita came in second place and managed to sell 13,334 units.

What’s interesting are the sales of the Nintendo Wii U, which managed to sell 8,858 units this week. This managed to beat out the PlayStation 4 which sold 7,387 units. This wouldn’t be a very big feat but the Wii U had no major releases in the past week (Mario Kart 8 will be out tomorrow in Japan) while the PS4 had inFamous: Second Son release in Japan.

Meanwhile, the regular 3DS managed to sell 4,711 units while the PSP averaged 1,201 units. The Xbox 360 managed to set a new record of sorts with 104 units sold this week. So that’s something for Microsoft to look forward to when the Xbox One releases in Japan in September. Stay tuned for software sales in Japan.

    Sony’s lies and PR hype train is going to slow to a crawl because most are seeing how broke Sony is and what a total indie box POS4 is. When X1 hits 399 MS are going to start steam rolling the indie box.

      Steam rolling? LOL. Xbox will never catch up to PS4 in global sales.

      The gaming division and first party studios are well funded, are in a net profit, and working on PS4 games. They are NOT broke.

      There is no “lying” coming from anybody but you.

      You sound upset that PS4 has more powerful hardware, more developer support, a large number of 1st party studios, and is outselling Xbox by ~3 million. Keep shilling and spinning while everyone else ignores you and buys more PS4s. It’s good to know you’re completely wrong and raging against facts and reality, and nothing you say will happen.

      PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and
      software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more
      dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a
      large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games.
      PS4 will make a net profit, Sony won’t go bankrupt. I’m constantly
      right, as usual.

      If you don’t think a 399 vs 499 price point is not a huge factor your a moron, Same-thing happened with the PS3 when it cost more.

    • ps4lol

      Not the same thing as PS3’s sales recovery.

      PS4 will stay ahead of Xbox in global sales the entire generation.

      “The gaming division and first party studios are well funded, are in a net profit, and working on PS4 games. They are NOT broke.”

      False: The Game Division IS Sony and, actually, they are hemorrhaging money.

      False: “PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen.” “You sound upset that PS4 has more powerful hardware”

      The hardware differences are nominal at best and games will look nearly indistinguishable. Look at how good Ryse looks- and that’s without utilizing the 32MB of ESRAM on the X1. Sales of games are not guaranteed to Sony as the winner, especially with an X1 price drop around the corner. Regardless who wins, the competition will be neck in neck.

      “Keep shilling and spinning while everyone else ignores you and buys more PS4s.”

      False: Speak for yourself. Personally, I’m buying the X1 first. The purchase of the PS4 will come at a later time.

      You fanboi’s are not only technologically inept from a knowledge perspective, but you all talk from your collective a$$es. If there was no competition we would all be playing games on our cellphones. So quit defending a company that could give a ratz a$$ about you.

      Me too, i am thinking to purchase xb1 earlier when it got more cheaper. What i actually dislike abt xb1 is its bulky size. I have ps2, wii, ps3 and xbox360 standing next to my tv and the size of xb1 is currently not nice to be put in my home theatre.

      While ps4 is nice, they never discount their price so it will be my last purchase, which made me realise that I may get wii u first.
