But the 3DS XL absolutely obliterates the competition in hardware sales.
Despite the Nintendo 3DS XL far and away trouncing its competition in sales, with 60,077 units sold this week, it would be the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3 that would dominate software sales in Japan according to the latest Media Create Sales charts.
Debuting at number 1 this week is Uta no Prince-sama: Music 2, which sold 68,415 units. Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist also entered the charts at second place on PlayStation 3 with 22,425 units sold. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is down to third place with 19,720 units (with lifetime sales at 445,437 units), while Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate debuted in fourth place with 18,625 units sold. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn managed to sell 12,336 (with 196,354 lifetime sales).
