Sony’s handheld enjoys a rare second place in Japan.
Sony’s PlayStation Vita handheld is the talk of this week’s Media Create hardware sales. While The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds may have dominated the software charts in Japan – and the 3DS XL topping the hardware charts – the Vita did enjoy some good sales thanks to the release of titles such as Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster.
The Vita managed to sell 81,111 units for the period of December 30th 2013 to January 5th 2014, which is more than 30K units from the previous week’s 50,087 units. The 3DS XL on the other hand has managed to sell 139,867 units, down from the previous week’s 164,078 units.
Meanwhile, the Nintendo Wii U is still seeing some very good sales, though this week saw 73,178 units sold (down from 109,113 units). The regular 3DS sold 61,836 units this week while the PS3 sold 30,321 units thanks to the HD remake of Final Fantasy X/X-2 on the home console.
