Media Create Sales for this week revealed: 3DS and Mario Party 9 dominate

Posted By | On 09th, May. 2012

So which hardware topped during the Golden Week in Japan? The answer’s easy — it’s the 3DS. Mario Party 9 topped the software charts and the PS Vita faced as sharp drop to 10k.

Sony has to do something about the PS Vita as a drop during the Golden Week is not something that should be taken lightly.

3DS sold approx. 92k units and the PS3 followed with approx. 24k units. The PSP did well at 20k, followed by the Wii.
