Media Create Hardware Sales: PS Vita Beats 3DS XL Yet Again

Titanfall doesn’t drive Xbox 360 sales because of course it wouldn’t.

A year ago, it wasn’t necessarily odd to see the PlayStation Vita getting trounced by the Nintendo 3DS XL week in and week out. This was despite the Vita having a few solid releases here and there, but the launch of the PS4 in Japan this past February seems to have given new life to the handheld. It’s been succeeding over the 3DS XL for weeks now, especially from April 7th to 13th according to the latest Media Create hardware sales charts.

The Vita managed to sell 24,078 units this week, which is only slightly down from last week’s 25,017 units. The 3DS XL sold 17,291 units this week and is at second place, slightly down from last week’s 22,947 units. The PS4 was in third place with 13,034 units sold this week and sales seem to have plateaued heavily following the initial excitement.

Also, in case you were wondering, no, the release of Titanfall in Japan did not spur Xbox 360 hardware sales. The console managed 229 units sold last week and considering Microsoft’s presence in Japan, it’s hardly surprising.
