PS Vita back in second place in hardware sales.
Media Create has posted its hardware sales for the week of April 28th to May 4th and the 3DS is number one yet again. After last week, it seems that Nintendo’s handheld has finally regained its lead in Japan after floundering to the PS Vita and PS4 when the latter launched in February.
The 3DS sold 42,647 units this week while the PS Vita managed to sell 25,606 units. The PS4, despite having a new release this week with Child of Light, has seemingly remained static in its sales. It sold 11,692 units in the past week while selling 12,172 units in the week prior. The PS3 is still going strong with 9,917 units sold while the Wii U manages a sobering 8,217 units.
The Wii U’s situation is likely to improve when Mario Kart 8 hits Japan late this month but we can’t help but think Nintendo wouldn’t be in such a bind if they had as many games as the 3DS on a weekly basis. What are your thoughts? Let us know below.
