However, it’s only slightly ahead of the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
Media Create’s Japanese hardware sales are out for the previous week and despite the New Nintendo 3DS XL being in the top spot, Sony’s PlayStation 4 has staged a comeback and overtaken it. However, the difference in numbers isn’t very significant.
PS4 sold 11,489 units last week compared to the New 3DS XL racking up 11,340 units sold. The PlayStation Vita is slightly behind with 10,685 units while the Nintendo Wii U only managed to sell 6,428 units. The New 3DS’s numbers aren’t as significant as its XL brethren, selling only 3,483 units in the past week. However, 3DS XL and 3DS sales have pretty much ground to a halt with 790 and 742 units sold respectively.
The PS4’s win over the New 3DS XL is fairly self-explanatory as Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster released the prior week. Despite only selling 15,913 units in its debut it still managed to push the PS4 into a winning position, if only slightly. What are your thoughts on this week’s hardware numbers?
