The latest round of Japanese hardware sales data is out thanks to Media Create and the numbers are quite telling. For all the trash-talking that Sony and Microsoft have been doing, Nintendo still continues to outsell both on the handheld and console front.

The numbers, as listed in descending order, say it all:

3DS LL – 251,949
3DS – 159,323
Wii U – 122,843
PSP – 65,859
PS3 – 47,626
Vita – 21,266
Wii – 13,049
Xbox 360 – 1,689
PS2 – 928
DSi – 454
DSi LL – 291

While Wii U hardware sales are currently down from the previous week, they still account for more than twice of the combined sales of the PS3 and Xbox 360. 3DS sales are up, most likely due to Animal Crossing: New Leaf crossing more than 2 million units sold since its release. Regardless, PS Vita are actually up this week compared to the previous week. Then again, when your closest competitor is selling more than 10 times your weekly amount, you would wonder if that’s really good enough.
