Weekly Japanese Hardware Sales: New 3DS Takes A Dive, Sony Hardware Rises

by William Schwartz


A new week begets new weekly hardware sales numbers for the Japanese market. Things are looking up for Sony hardware, but New 3DS still manages to stay on top.

This weeks Media Create sales are in from Japan and despite the New Nintendo 3DS hardware taking a bit of a dip it still managed to stay on top despite sharp rises from PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 sales.  It was also interesting that the Nintendo Wii U also rose quite a bit the past week. The sales are for November 10th-November 16th, and are pretty good overall showing a rise in overall sales across the board for games.

The New Nintendo 3DS leads the pack with 38,457 sold, although that is down around 12,000 from the previous week. The PlayStation Vita managed to sell 19,301 that is an increase of 9,427 and on the Xbox side of things, the Xbox One managed to sell 2,245, which is an increase of 1,732 units. Full stats for the week are below.

New 3DS LL: 38,457
